Quick Reference

The people of Israel were summoned as a whole community to listen to Moses and Aaron (Exod. 12: 3) and to Solomon (1 Kgs. 8: 14). In the taunt song over Babylon, the king of Babylon is mockingly made to refer to his expectation of taking a seat among the assembly of the gods (Isa. 14: 13), located on a mountain according to the Ras Shamra texts found at Ugarit.
