Abstract The author proposes that northern prophetic narratives in the books of Samuel and Kings influenced the development of Elohist traditions in the Pentateuch. These later Elohist »pools of tradition« may have arisen in the 7th century BCE before their use by the Yahwist historian in the 6th century BCE. Motifs and theological ideas in the prophetic narratives, such as mountaintop experiences, fire, angel of God, dreams, prophetic identity, animal activity, immediate retribution, fear of God, and obedience are compared with the same concepts in the Pentateuchal Elohist to establish priority of the prophetic texts.
