At the beginning of the twenty-first century, scholarship on the
Psalms is faced with the fundamental methodological
challenge of combining a synchronic and a diachronic textual
reading. In this light, the author has integrated valid
exegetical methods with the objective to determine Psalm
69’s structure, its developmental layers as well as its
compositional function within the Psalter. This analysis of
the literary microcosmos of Psalm 69, within its
macrocosmos, has led to new results as well as a new
understanding of the text of this psalm. The Psalms have
always been of central importance in the scholarly study of
the Old Testament. Following in this tradition, the author
has both challenged and confirmed some of the results of
earlier scholarship.
