Yahweh Was Not (Primarily) A Divine Warrior « An und für sich

“One of the intentions of this study is that the ‘God is king’ metaphor is not consistently associated with the idea of a Divine Warrior within the texts of the Hebrew Bible. The ‘God is king’ metaphor is extended through the semantic fields of ‘judge’ and ‘shepherd’…The coherence of the metaphor is further evident in the entailments of the metaphor that include the association of God’s strength with mercy and justice, and the choice of the ‘shield’ (a device for protection) as the major military trapping connected with God” (44-5).
