Grabbe’s highly regarded work, Priests, Prophets, Diviners, Sages.2 Grabbe begins his study by surveying the most relevant biblical texts that re-veal something about the nature of prophets and diviners and their arts.

Although the practice of sorcery and divination was forbidden to the Hebrews, the high priests of Israel inquired of the Lord regarding the future by means.
