It is difficult to establish such multiple layers in the OJN as some scholars, such as Mulzer (1992), did. Otto’s suggestion (2001: 55-64, 113, 119-141; 2003: 493-494) that a pre-Dtr editing (called the “Naboth Edition” = 9:21b, 25-27) can be discerned in the OJN is a possibility, but this editing does not affect the aim of the present study. For example, see Burney 1903: xiii-xiv. 14 2. 5 Vv. 7b and 10a are denunciations of Jezebel, while vv. 7a, 8-9 are condemnations of the entire House of Ahab.
14a to the other reports on the revolts in the Northern Kingdom, ascribed these verses to the annalistic redaction, which is later than the Dtr redaction. Be that as it may, his ascription of the phrase +:<'¡+) to the same redaction (op. , 23, n. 38) should be rejected. This expression also appears in other verses (1 Kgs 12:1, 16, 18; 2 Kgs 3:6), which are not formulated in annalistic style. Gray (1977: 541) and Hentschel (1985: 39) regarded v. 14a as a concluding verse of 9:1-13, derived from a “prophetic source”.
Examples include Jehoash (2 Kgs 12:21-22, although the verses do not contain a description of transferring the body), Amaziah (2 Kgs 14:19-20), and Josiah (2 Kgs 23:29-30). The hypothesis of the double redaction of the Dtr History, which was suggested by Cross (1973), is adopted in the present study. According to the theory, the Dtr History was first redacted in Josiah’s reign and then, in the Exilic period. For a new, strong view on the date and the extent of the composition of the Deuteronomistic work, see Kratz 2000; Witte 2005: 68-70.
