Abstract

Ex 15:3 is a stock phrase on Samaritan amulets from the Byzantine period. The article demonstrates that the abbreviated version "God is a/the conqueror" derived from a conflation of Ex 15:3 with Deut 10:17 and became a fixed epithet. Furthermore, evidence from medieval Samaritan historiographical sources supports the hypothesis that the amulets with this verse were worn in times of war.
