Conceptions of Judah, II: Yahwistic Worship

(p.122) 3 Conceptions of Judah, II: Yahwistic Worship
The Troubles of Templeless Judah


Oxford University Press

This chapter continues to explore worship in the homeland, but with particular attention to Yahwistic practice. It contains two foci: (1) what type of Yahwistic ritual continued in the homeland and where did it occur? and (2) a survey of the lament literature commonly associated with that setting. After closer study of the laments typically associated with Templeless Judah (Pss. 74, 79, 89, 102; Isa. 63:7-64:11) it is clear that a variety of influences disallow the attribution of liturgical poems to Judah without an understanding of what might be typical of Judahite thought. Moreover, the ascription of laments to worship at the temple represents another conception from outside the community in sixth-century Judah, in this instance, from modern scholarship.
