Abstract This article challenges suggestions that knowledge of Akkadian literary texts was mediated to biblical writers through the scribal culture of Late Bronze Age (LB) Canaan. Its conclusions are based on what is known about scribal education in LB Canaan, the contents of the archives of Ugarit, and analyses of literary borrowing (hybridity) used in post-colonial studies. LB Canaanite scirbes were able to resist the cultural influences that result in hybridity because their political circumstances differed from those under which the authors of biblical texts operated.
