Abstract The contribution identifies the transition from Joshua to Judges as what should be a breaking-point for the thesis of a Deuteronomistic History. One must begin from the fact that Jos 23 has a two-stage origin, and even the basic text in Jos 23,1.2*.3.14b‒16a cannot of course be reckoned as part of the first Dtr version of Joshua. The original Dtr framework of Judges, which with the pre-Dtr stories of the judges forms the earliest bridge from Joshua to I Samuel is subsequent to the basic text of Jos 23. The reworking of Jos 23 in vv. 4–14a reacts to the insertion about the incomplete settlement in Jud 2* and 3,1–6* and connects the covenantal exhortation with the impending violation of the claim to exclusive worship and the prohibition of exogamy. As a result it is scarcely possible any longer to speak of a Deuteronomistic History extending from Deuteronomy to II Kings. Instead a comprehensive »Enneateuchal« composition is formed from the successive combination of separate partial accounts, which also include Deuteronomistic historical works.
