Tel Dan Stela: New Light on Aramaic and Jehu's Revolt

Abstract

Two new fragments of the Tel Dan stela were found in 1994. These new fragments provide a more certain historical context for the mention of the "house of David" in the first fragment. The reconstructed fragments refer to the death of both Joram, king of Israel, and Ahaziah, king of the "house of David." These new data indicate that Hazael was the author of the inscription and suggest that Jehu's revolt was undertaken in collusion with Hazael. The language of the stela also fills a gap in the dialect continuum that stretched from northern Syria to Canaan.
