Rearranging the Gods in Esarhaddon’s Succession Treaty (SAA 2 6:414–465)
The arrangement of divine names in the curse section of Esarhaddon’s Succession Treaty (SAA 2 6:414–465) defied D.J. Wiseman’s expectations. Subsequent scholars have claimed the arrangement is based on the traditional divine hierarchy of the Assyrian pantheon or the lexical godlists tradition, but such explanations are only partially adequate. This paper argues that the list of gods in ll. 414–465 (and especially ll. 419–430) was instead based upon an ancientMesopotamian curse tradition, as Moshe Weinfeld observed, common to the Laws of Hammurapi and several other Neo-Assyrian treaties. This paper also reveals the Assyrian scribe’s specific motives underlying his innovations to this ancient curse tradition in SAA 2 6:414–465 and proposes reexamining the relationship between SAA 2 6 and Deuteronomy 28 in light of these innovations and motives.
