Abstract:This dissertation aims to read Books IV and V of the Psalter from the wisdom perspective by investigating the wisdom motif through the structure and the thematic network of the psalms in both books. When reading the Psalter with a holistic view, it is possible to trace the historical sequence within the books. Books IV–V are linked together in describing Israel's exilic and post-exilic situation. In succession to Psalm 89 dealing with the failure of the Davidic dynasty, Psalms 90–92 and 94 bring up the problem of the exile, the major crisis in Israel's faith. The interlocking technique of Psalms 93 and 94 serves to provide the exilic situation as an interpretive context for Psalms 93 and 95–100, the Yahweh-kingship psalms. In the exilic situation, the Yahweh-kingship psalms emphasize the themes of creation, the salvation of his people and the judgment of the nations. Due to the defeat of Israel, the affirmation of Yahweh' kingship is grounded on creation, and his kingship is to be attested through Yahweh's salvation of his people and judgment on the nations. Psalms 103 and 104, as twin psalms, each manifest Yahweh's kingship through salvation in history and through creation. According to Psalm 104, Yahweh creates and sustains the universe with wisdom. Creation manifests not only Yahweh's kingship, but also reveals his wisdom. Yahweh designs the world and all creatures depend on him for life, and he sustains them with the way of renewal—death and life. Dependence on Yahweh is a mode of manifesting Yahweh's kingship, and the way of renewal is a means of maintaining his kingship. For creatures, wisdom is to follow the nature of their existence and to show a proper response to Yahweh's kingship. The result of dependence on Yahweh is life, blessing, and cosmos, but that of intentional rebellion against Yahweh is chaos and death. In the human sphere, this rebellion is designated as sin or wickedness. Yahweh intervenes in human history to maintain his kingship through salvation for those who depend on him and through judgment on the wicked. Salvation and judgment are the mode of Yahweh's reign, as the way of renewal to maintain his kingship. Wisdom is to understand and seek Yahweh's salvation and judgment as the manifestation of Yahweh's kingship. The Books IV and V suggest understanding the exile and the return from exile as the way of renewal—death and life. Psalms 105–7 apply the way of renewal to Israel's history. Psalm 107 depicts the four illustrations representing the exile and the return from exile in the way of renewal (vv. 1–32). Summarizing Israel's history in the frame of renewal (vv. 33–41), Psalm 107 focuses on the needy, the only beneficiary of Yahweh's Hesed and salvation through dependence on Yahweh. The Davidic collection, Psalms 108–10, presents David as the model of the wise person who totally depends on Yahweh. Psalms 111 and 112 are parallel in describing the ways of Yahweh and the ways of the righteous. The interlocking technique in which Psalm 111 is closely connected to Psalm 107 and Psalm 112 to Psalms 108–10 reinforces the permeation of the wisdom perspective in the unit of Psalms 107–18. Psalms 113–18 praise Yahweh who executes his kingship through the way of renewal from death to life.
