Title (English, Long) Gauging Egyptian Influences on Biblical Literature
Author Fox, Michael V.
Edited book Subtle Citation, Allusion, and Translation in the Hebrew Bible
Year (Reference) 2017
Language English
Pages 228-241 Pages
Genre Original
Abstract The Bible itself (1 Ki 5:9-12) suggests that Israelite literati were familiar with Egyptian wisdom texts, and strong claims have been made that Prov 22:17-23:11 is derived from The Instruction of Amenemope by a combination of translation and revision. In this chapter, MVF considers objections to this claim and then provides additional insights that account for the objections even as they strengthen the case for literary dependence.
