Abstract The legal figure of the moshiaʿ, the deliverer, in the Hebrew Bible has interesting connotations. The role of this deliverer has to be understood within the framework of the Covenant community. The main objective of this study is to define the broader significance of moshiaʿ. In order to accomplish this goal the occurrences of moshiaʿ in forensic settings was investigated with special attention to its collocation with the cry (especially tsaʿaq/zaʿaq). It was noted that both Yahweh and human beings receive this title. It was concluded that the cry is the official request for the intervention of the savior moshiaʿ. And his judicial role as reported by Deuteronomy reveals that his intervention in favor of the oppressed is a combination of legal responsibilities and the Israelite ethics of love for the neighbor.
