This article includes a short introduction to the general issue
of linguistic dating of Old Testament texts as well as an appraisal of
the alternative, non-chronological view of linguistic variation that has
recently been put forward by Young, Rezetko and Ehrensvärd. Two poetical
texts that are generally considered arch aic (Exodus 15 and Judges
5), are examined using an approach to the verbal system in Biblical Hebrew
poetry inspired by Alviero Niccacci. In this way it is demonstrated
that supposedly archaic preterital use of yiqtol can be explained in other
ways – which means that this feature is not a conclusive argument for
early dating.
