Example text

Nahash was also the king from whom Saul delivered the people. Saul initially appeared to be the charismatic military leader the people wanted (1 Sam 12:13), but he was not the king God wanted (1 Sam 13:14; 15:28). Verses 14 and 15 assume the terms of the Sinai covenant. Obedience leads to blessing, and disobedience leads to curse (Lev 26; Deut 28). 46 It is presumably the opposite of 1 Sam 12:15b. Samuel then concludes by calling the people to witness the sign of judgment that their request for a worldly king is evil—a thunderstorm in dry season (1 Sam 12:16–17).

Joshua (the new Moses) and Eleazar (the new Aaron) led the people into the land.

18 The text of Deut 26:5–9 is very similar to that of Deut 6:20–25 (26:3 creates a link to 6:23), but the setting is quite different. 19 It is what everyone has in common—an acknowledgment of the source of the present blessing (Deut 26:10–15) recited by every subsequent generation as the story of all the people of God. The text in its present position in the composition of the Pentateuch does not function as a witness to a separable history of salvific events to be parsed into independent traditions.
