Recent investigations of the ancient Noar Eastern treaty texts have shed a new light especially on the familiar idea of a covenant between God and his people. A Hebrew verb (SP character) is shown as one of the basic words concerning the notion of God as sovereign Lord and of the people as his servants. A Hebrew formula (SP character) demonstrates the importance of the "mutuality" motif of the covenant. The mutual understanding of divine Confrontation in Jeremiah's Confession will be show as a central problem in his rîb-controversy with God.
