The greatest work of compilation and editing can be found in the single ‘history’ running from Joshua through Judges and Samuel and ending with Kings (thus incorporating the already existing Succession Narrative), which was probably put together from older materials, or reworked from earlier editions, during the Exile in 8 HEBREW BIBLE: FORMATION AND CHARACTER the sixth century BCE (Noth 1981). This massive narrative work is traditionally known as the ‘Former Prophets’ but in modern scholarship as the ‘Deuteronomistic History’, since it is an interpretation of the history of Israel down to the Exile according to criteria in part derived from the book of Deuteronomy.
