Re: document uniformity

Quite right, Avigdor; and in my book I have my own suggestion to make 
as to the lack of such literature in ancient Judah/Judaea. But the 
point is, this lack is not merely an "Israelite" phenomenon. A fair 
amount has been produced by Loretz and Tropper on divination in 
Ugarit, and yet the fact remains that the very few texts that could 
be said to fall into this category represent only an infinitesimal 
fraction of the total number of texts emerging from the sites in 
question. And this fact remains puzzling when we compare it with the 
situation in Mesopotamia or, for that matter, in Anatolia.
