Abstract According to Ps 139:8 Yahweh is present also in the netherworld. Thus the distance between
humans and Yahweh after death is not greater than it has been during their lifetime (and before their birth). This paper proposes to understand the view of death in Ps 139 not as a precursor of later hopes for a life after death, but rather as a critical answer to such hopes in the spirit of Qoheleth and Ben Sira (following Gen 3).
