Abstract This article compares the conceptual and linguistic similarities between the curse formula of the Azatiwada inscription and the curse formula in 2 Kings 21.7, 13. The linguistic similarities between the two texts have been pointed out many times, but the difference in agency has not been explored. The grammatical similarity between the two accentuates the difference between Azatiwada’s claim of ownership and Yahweh’s claim of ownership. This article will also explore the subtle theological distinctions implicit in the two curse formulas.
