Abstract תורה in Ps 1,2 attempts to unfold the meaning of תורה in Deuteronomy and the Deuteronomistic History. In Psalm 1, תורה is a window into the potentiality of the term in relation to a living tradition. This essay outlines the further transformation of תורה in five early Jewish and Christian interpretations of Psalm 1: Ben Sira, 4QInstruction, the Epistle of Barnabas, Clement of Alexandria’s Stromateis, and Irenaeus of Lyons’s Against Heresies. It argues that the meaning of תורה in Ps 1,2 is dynamic and connected to ongoing attempts to appropriate it and to apply it to human life.
