Abstract:
The present work attempts to enter into the ongoing discussion regarding the canonical arrangement of the Old Testament Psalter and its overall message. It does so by examining Book IV and its function within the whole of the psalms. By examining Psalms 90-106 in their literary context, the psalm book's overall theological and thematic message is discussed and the main suggestion of this thesis is that Psalms 90-106 have been purposely arranged as a rejoinder to the previous three books, in response to the rise and fall of Davidic kingship charted in Books I-III. Thus, as a result, this work seeks to outline Book IV's role in the message of the Psalter and, thereby, add to the ongoing conversation within psalms studies regarding the organisation of the Psalter.
