dc.description Nearly 4,000 years ago, the Mesopotamian scribe ,N¯ur-Ilabrat, created a list which mentioned many kings. The list was designed to promote the argument that kingship was "brought down to earth as a gift from heaven so that human beings might conduct their affairs in a purposeful fashion." Professor Sasson assesses what meaning N¯ur-Ilabrat derives from his list and how his assumptions play out in the Hebrew book of Judges. en_US
