We discover the consequences in their respective epistemological positive factors for our realizing of the canonical constitution of the Psalter.
After constructing a diagnostic technique for the identity and research of the epistemological gains inside a biblical textual content, we use it on all the 4 psalms, and talk about their epistemological characteristics with recognize to their canonical placement within the Psalter.
We locate that an epistemic development develops around the canonical ordering of the 4 psalms. whereas the psalmists are more and more forthright in acknowledging the ethical paradox that the righteous frequently undergo, whereas the depraved can prosper, they interact this paradox with ever extra refined responses. even if Yhwh is finally the resource of all knowledge, people can facilitate their acquisition of information through looking him out deliberately, via wondering him at once, and by way of watching him with a center keen on learning.
