The Structure of Psalms 93 - 100

David M. Howard

An exhaustive study of these kingship psalms, utilizing the entire lexicon of the 8 psalms studied. Howard’s study confirms that Hebrew poetry is regularized around a pattern of bicolons of roughly 8:8 syllables and 3:3 stresses. A major contribution to the rhetorical-critical method.
