This chapter summarizes the results of the study of the Deuteronomistic History in Part I. Analysis of the Deuteronomistic History indicates at least three levels of composition: an eighth century b.c.e. Hezekian edition of the work that was designed to portray righteous Davidic rule over the rebellious northern tribes; a seventh century b.c.e. Josianic edition of the work that was designed to support Josiah's reform by portraying him as the ideal monarch of the entire Davidic line; and a sixth‐century Exilic edition of the work that was designed to explain the Babylonian exile.

Keywords:   Deuteronomistic History, Exilic edition, Hezekian edition, Josiah's reform, Josianic edition
