Abstract The Deuteronomistic school/movement has left its traces in several biblical books. The Deuteronomistic History from Deuteronomy to Second Kings is not the only representative of Deuteronomistic (Dtr) theology—Dtr phraseology also occurs repeatedly in the book of Psalms. The most significant examples are Psalms 18, 25, 44, 50, 74, 78, 79, 81, 89 and 132. The Dtr influence originated differently in these psalms. In some cases editors inserted passages with Dtr colour into an earlier prayer, but in some other cases the original author of the psalm had employed Dtr language. It seems likely that Deuteronomism represented a kind of normative theology in the Second Temple period. However, this heritage was open for reinterpretation. Psalm 44, at least, protests against the Dtr way of thinking.
