Example text

Everything that was devoted and consecrated to the Holy One was excluded from profane, non-priestly usage, such as a field consecrated to YHWH (cf. Lev 27:21) or any other thing (Lev 27:28)! The description in Num 31 is an example of Priestly scribal erudition, which discusses problems of a ‘sacral warfare’ in accordance with the distinct kinds of war given in Deut 20, 21 and 13 and with the demands of sacral purity and expiation in narrative form. The text is therefore often considered an early Midrash.

The narrator has Sennacherib’s messenger say to king Hezekiah (2 Kgs 19:10–11): “Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God in whom thou trust deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria. Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all the lands, by destroying them utterly: and shalt thou be delivered? ( ‫שׁ ַמעְתָּ אֵת‬ ָ ‫ִהנֵּה אַתָּ ה‬ ‫”) ֲאשֶׁר עָשׂוּ ַמ ְלכֵי אַשּׁוּר ְלכָל ָהא ֲָרצוֹת ְל ַהח ֲִרימָם‬. Here the execution of the ban ritual against conquered countries is described as a basic characteristic of Assyrian policy, and this accusation is repeated in the parallels Isa 37:11 and 2 Chr 32:14!

42 In the context of the original Deuteronomic law, the scribes developed a legal perspective on war, and an impulse for a further development of an international law of war. They formulated a martial law to which Israel was bound by divine commandment with respect to the other nations. In a set of rules this law made it compulsory to offer peace before engaging in acts of war against a fortified city (cf. Deut 20:10–14). The law prohibited the destruction of plantations surrounding a city during siege, in order to protect the civilians from deprivation (Deut 20:19–20).
