Abstract

SOME OBSERVATIONS ON PSALM LXXXVII1 by TH. BOOIJ Amsterdam There is reason for considering Ps. lxxxvii a problematic text. Its opening with a noun with a third person masculine singular pro- nominal suffix is uncommon; it is often thought that in the first line a stich must be missing. On the whole, the psalm has an abrupt style and displays unusual ideas. The relation between its different statements is not always easy to understand. The end of the poem, v. 7, has been said to be totally unintelligible. The metre is ir- regular. I It is often thought that these problems have been caused by a serious disarrangement of the text. So, apart from emendations of the ordinary type, reconstructions of the textual order have been proposed, often of a drastic nature.2 The proposals, however, are open to objections: 1 This article is part of research project no.
