Nickelsburg, 1 Enoch 1, 403) only makes it harder to explain why Aramaic “leader” would be read as Hebrew “word” in 90:38. 18 Lindars seems unaware that Charles had already anticipated the gist of his solution. See n. 53 above. 19 Lindars, “A Bull, a Lamb and a Word,” 485–486. 20 Tiller, A Commentary, 275. 21 Tiller, A Commentary, 387 (“the allusion is not that elusive”). 23 In other words, the gift offered by the Greek translator was not missed: it was declined. Third, some of Lindars’ own arguments are poorly considered and open up his otherwise attractive solution to unnecessary criticism.

Also draws attention to the Abrahamic covenant, and in a unique way. Scholars have noted the surprising fact that God is not even mentioned and does not appear in the allegory until the beginning of the exodus story. 61 Devorah Dimant offers what is perhaps a more adequate explanation. She points out that God is not mentioned in Chronicles until the beginning of the history of Judah, a subject of obvious importance to the Chronicler. In the same way, the An.

The horn or horns of divine victory and strength belong to the Davidide in Pss 89:17, 92:10, and 132:17, but we also find such horns given to Joseph (Deut 33:17), Hannah (1Sam 2:1) and “the righteous” in general (Pss 75:10; 112:9; 148:14). In Sir 45:7 it is Aaron who enjoys the horns of divine favor. 31 Problems with a “messianic” identification are already noted in Charles’s commentary (Book of Enoch, 215).
