Abstract

This article aims to highlight the relevance of Lam 4,14 for interpreting Hag 2,12-13 with regard to the issue of the transference of a ritual state via indirect touch (1). Until now, Ezek 44,19 has been considered to offer the only parallel to Hag 2,12-13. In my view, however, Lam 4,14 provides not only an additional but also a closer parallel. There are significant similarities between these three texts. Throughout this article, we shall explore two particular areas of resemblance: transference of a ritual status via indirect touch, with clothes forming the medium for this transference, and the role of the priests as the chief agents in the transfer of status.
