Abstract Michael J. Chan argues, on a methodological level, for the deeper integration of iconographic materials into the task of tradition history-a method that has tended to focus on textual evidence alone. Following the work of O.H. Steck, however, “tradition” is understood in more flexible terms, to refer to inherited concepts and constellations, which can exist across multiple media. The author undertakes a tradition-historical study of the “Wealth of Nations Tradition” – a series of texts in which the foreign nations of the earth bring their wealth to Zion (1 Kgs 10:1–10, 13, 15//2 Chr 9:1–9, 12, 14; 1 Kgs 10:23–25//2 Chr 9:22–24; Pss 68:19, 29–32; 72:10–11; 76:12; 96:7–8//1 Chr 16:28–29; Isa 18:7; 45:14; 60:4–17; 61:5–6; 66:12; Zeph 3:10; 2 Chr 32:23). The Wealth of Nations tradition is found throughout the ancient Near East. Michael J. Chan shows that in some cases, the biblical texts reflect this tradition with little to no modification while in others the tradition is recast in creative and disruptive ways.
