Abstract Through examination of intertextuality in biblical narrative, this article investigates how the stories of the campaign at Rabbah (2 Sam. 11.20-21) and of the siege of Abel Bethmaacah (2 Sam. 20.14-22) reflect the story of the death of Abimelech at Thebez (Judg. 9.52-53). It first considers the shared characteristics of these stories: each involves a siege situation in which women play a vital role. It is, however, close consideration of the differences between these stories and how their authors adapted the details of the Abimelech story to the needs of the new contexts that enables determination of which story is the source and which the reflection and what motivated their use of the Thebez narrative.
