Example text

Justice and the Politics of Difference. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1990. 2 1 On Prophetic Stammering Herbert Marks Biblical prophecy is hard to read, harder even than biblical narrative, and the ostensible reasons are fairly obvious. ”2 Though critical analysis has improved on this formlessness, providing various maps of oral and redactional intention, the impression of sheer accumulation, of forbidding, nonsequential abundance, manages to persist. One might even argue that it helps account for the prophets’ capacity to move us so powerfully, an effect that differs, at least in degree, from the continuous modulations of skillful reading, being more sudden and intermittent.

However, the underlying mechanism, which involves a double movement of introjection and projection, absorbing the desired presence and spitting out the destructive threat, is figured most dramatically in the scenes of oral incorporation in which the prophet actually eats the word or the scroll, yhwh places his—or perhaps Moses’—words in Jeremiah’s mouth at his commissioning (1:9), but the trope is developed more fully in the course of his “second lament”: Thy words were found, and I ate them, and they became to me a joy and the delight of my heart; for I am called by thy name, Lord, God of hosts.

If, like Freud and the biblical authors, we are prepared to take the bedrock of sexual difference figuratively, we may draw a further lesson on the stammering of the prophet from the uncanny story of the bridegroom of blood, which follows the call of Moses in Exodus: At an encampment on the way, the Lord met him and sought to kill him. ” So he let him go. At that time she said “bridegroom of blood” in reference to the circumcision. (Exod 4:24–26) The passage seems to allude to a more extensive tradition, long since lost, but in its present context it concerns Moses on his way to Egypt to execute the prophetic commission he has only just received.
