Example text

Alt, Völker, 38. 22 2. Das „negative Besitzverzeichnis" Text nimmt er in seinen „Kleinen Schriften" auf Ri 1 bzw. auf einzelne Verse daraus Bezug 97 . So oft A It allerdings in seinem gedrucktem Werk auf Ri 1 zu sprechen kommt, an keiner Stelle ist dabei ausdrücklich vom „negativen Besitzverzeichnis" die Rede 98 . Einen Beleg für das ihm zugeschriebene Urheberrecht am „negativen Besitzverzeichnis" sucht man also zunächst vergeblich. Zur Klärung dieses Problems konnte Siegfried Herrmann nach Durchsicht von zwei Vorlesungsmanuskripten Alts zur „Geschichte des Volkes Israel" — das eine fand von 1919/20 bis 1925 Verwendung, das andere, als Neufassung des älteren Textes, von 1927 bis 1939 - beitragen.

Daß jedenfalls im Textzusammenhang von Ri 1 mit „vernichten" in w . 27ff. die Pointe des Kapitels besser getroffen sein dürfte als mit der Übersetzung „vertreiben", darauf weist vor allem die Episode über die Einnahme Bethels hin, die w . 27ff. thematisch einleitet: der von den Josefsöhnen in Dienst genommene Bewohner Bethels wird am Ende zwar aus der Stadt hinausgeschickt, doch kann er so immer noch eine neue Stadt in der •ΤΙΠΠ JHN „bauen" (die Jos 1,4, dem einzigen weiteren Beleg für die ΠΤΙΠΠ JHN, zufolge mit zum verheißenen Land gehört; vgl.

Die breiteste Wirkung hat gleichwohl die Annahme eines „negativen Besitzverzeichnisses" in Ri 1 gehabt, und deshalb sollen unsere Untersuchungen auch hier beginnen. 1. 1. Zur Begriffsgeschichte des „negativen Besitzverzeichnisses" Ri 1 erscheint in der vorliegenden Textgestalt zweigeteilt: während die erste Kapitelhälfte über die erfolgreichen Eroberungen im Stammesgebiet Judas berichtet, ziehen die w . 27ff. die negative Bilanz der für unvollständig befundenen Landnahme im Gebiet Benjamins und der Nordstämme.
