Abstract

This article deals especially with Psalm 2* and Psalm 18* and they are understood against a neo-Assyrian context. During  the latter part of the eight  and  the first half of  the seventh century the  neo-Assyrian power was especially felt in Judah and the influence of its royal ideology can  clearly be detected in these two psalms. Psalm 89*  and Psalm 72* were also influenced by the Assyrian royal theology but these motifs were used in a subversive way. In Psalm 2* and Psalm 18* the neo-Assyrian motifs were employed to elaborate the Jerusalem royal ideology.
