Outraging the Resident-Alien: King David, Uriah the Hittite, and an El-Amarna Parallel

Abstract : This article compares the treatment that king David inflicted on Uriah the Hittite in 2 Sam 11, who was a "ger tôsah", "resident alien" according to the rabbis, and the outrage that a high official of a pharaoh committed to an "ubaru", "resident-alien" in El-Amarna times.
