For example, the Bible says that God was “exercising self-control” toward ancient Babylon, an enemy of his people.

The concept is a priori and has priority over everything else. It is taken for granted. God's reality is 1 Cf. Blackman, 'Know; Knowledge', in A Theological Word Book of the Bible, pp. Size: KB.

Among source-critical scholars, it is generally agreed that Deuteronomy and the Deuteronomistic history originated independently of the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers (the first four books of the Torah, sometimes called the "Tetrateuch", whose sources are the Priestly source and the Jahwist), and the history of the books of Chronicles; most scholars trace all or most of it to the Babylonian exile.
