Abstract:The purpose of this study is to describe Northern Israelite political and economic systems during the dynasty of King Omri within the broader context of Israel's social history. The study is based upon a critical assessment of the Elijah and Elisha stories (referred to here as the Omride Narratives), 1 Kgs 16–2 Kgs 10, in conjunction with several Syro-Palestinian inscriptions as well as archaeological data from the Northern kingdom during the ninth century BCE. The study attempts to extend the sociological research (which has been successfully applied to such other topics as Israelite settlement in Canaan, and the origins and early development of the monarchy, etc.) to the divided monarch as well. Even though limited to the political and economic institutions, the larger framework is the systemic and macro-social analysis of society as a whole, based upon the model of the historical bureaucratic societies of Shmuel N. Eisenstadt. Consequently, the description of Omride Israel as a historical bureaucratic society highlights the tension between traditional and non-traditional elements in both polity and economy in ways characteristic of these societies, while allowing for individual differences. Through their political and economic, and indeed religious policies, the Omride kings established the largest bureaucratic administrative structure so far witnessed in the Northern kingdom. They also undertook wide-ranging building projects, and entered into diplomatic relations with Phoenicia, Aram, and Judah, while seeking to keep Moab under their hegemony. These policies affected the rural economy throughout Israel as more and more human and material resources found their way from the peripheral rural villages to the center in Samaria. However, in Omride Israel the ruling elite had not acquired the notoriety in the exploitation of the poor that would be seen in the eighth century. In the exercise of royal power, the monarchy found itself limited by the same social institutions with which it sought to legitimize itself.
