...with the Psalms in language and theme. ( 33:1–6 ) The introductory ‘woe’ in v. 1 is aimed at a ‘destroyer’ and a ‘treacherous one’. The two roots are each used four times in one verse: NRSV brings this out but at the expense of a very ponderous rendering (42 words in Eng. as against 16 in Heb.).

...᾽ and may designate a tribe or region in northern Arabia. This gains some added support by the presence of Aramaic words in the text (e.g. bar , ‘son’, for Heb. ben ). Although the role of the queen-mother is unusual, the vocational intent of the passage brings it particularly close to Egyptian instruction, especially those concerned with the training of future monarchs (e.g. the Instruction of Merikare ).
