G. Braulik, "Zur Abfolge der Gesetze in Deuteronomium 16,18 -21,23. Weitere Beobachtungen", Biblica 69 (1988), 63-92. - This is a sequel to "Die Abfolge der Gesetze in Deuteronomium 12-26 und der Dekalog" (Das Deuteronomium. Entstehung, Gestalt und Botschaft, ed. N. Lohfink, BETL, LXVIII Lowen, 1985, 252-272). It is to be followed by a further Article on Deut. 22-25. The general argument is that the arrangement of the laws in Deuteronomy follows the order of the Decalogue. 12-18 generally corresponds to the first four commandments and 19-25 to the fifth to tenth. Deut. 19:1-21:23 deal with "life" which the people are exhorted to choose and which is promised by the fifth commandment. (R.A.M.)
