The study represents the theory of a literary and thematic dependency of Psalm 113 upon 1 Samuel 2:1-10. The ‘Song of Hannah’ (c. 7th Century bc ?) is older than Psalm 113 (c. 6th Century bc ?). Both psalms place emphasis upon the uniqueness of Jahwe. The theological skopos of Psalm 113 aims primarily at the affirmation of Jahwe as the incomparable God (v.5). This topic allows itself to present Psalm 113 from 1 Sam 2:1-10. The author of Psalm 113, with the help of ‘The Song of Hannah’ in 1 Sam 2:1-10 has made Ps 113 a hymn of the community of Jahwe about the incomparable God.
