Abstract The factual contact of "the Desert and the Sown" was thought in some parts of the Hebrew Bible as a dangerous confrontation : the civilized world against a realm of "monsters", most of them giants as they were illustrated by the Megalithic architecture of Transjordan. Although spatially unstable through centuries, that kind of "frontier" was particularly advocated by the Deuteronomist authors in their Mosaic war legends, which are constitutive of the foundation myth of the Israel promised land. We suggest that so was built, around the Persian period, the story of a conquest from the East and for colonization.
