Structure  of Kings xiii the speeches contained in the narrative, in illustration of the same standpoint. In passages of this character the hand of RD may readily be distinguished. They exhibit a constant recurrence of strongly marked phrases, to be found elsewhere for the most part only in Deuteronomy or in the books which exhibit the influence of Deuteronomy, and therefore presumably derived from that source. Other expressions stand alongside of these Deuteronomic expressions, and are of a piece with the thoughts to which they give voice; and these possess an individuality of their own, and are peculiar ( or nearly so) to Kings. The phrases characteristic of RD receive comment in the Notes as they occur. For convenience of reference, however, a list is here given.
