The crux of the problem in the interpretation of this lexeme is the absence of a word divider between the apparent two parts: בי 14; (Beth) and דו 91; (DWD). This suggests that the lexeme expresses a single word idea, not two words like ÂhouseÂ and ÂDavidÂ. In support of this Athas points out that elsewhere in the Tel Dan inscription word dividers are used regularly in expressions constructed from two or more concepts:Âon the ground of El-BaytelÂ,Âthe king of IsraelÂ,Âand thousands of horsemenÂ,Âtheir landÂ.

"There is little proof of the use of slaves in Egypt or of the Exodus, of the conquering of the Canaanites by the Israelites or (prior to 1993) of King Davidâs reign. But absence of proof is not proof of absence. It only takes one find to change that picture.
For example, until 1993 there was no proof of the existence of King David or even of Israel as a nation prior to Solomon. Then in 1993 archeologists found proof of King David's existence outside the Bible. At an ancient mound called Tel Dan, in the north of Israel, words carved into a chunk of basalt were translated as "House of David" and "King of Israel" proving that he was more than just a legend.
Then in 2005 Israeli archaeologist Eilat Mazar found King David's palace relying on the Bible as one of her many tools. She says,âWhat is amazing about the Bible is that very often we see that it is very accurate and sometimes amazingly accurate.â(from Using the Bible As Her Guide http://www.thetrumpet.com/... accessed March 1, 2011 )
In 1990 Frank Yurco, an Egyptologist at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, used hieroglyphic clues from a monolith known as the Merneptah Stele to identify figures in a Luxor wall relief as ancient Israelites. The stele itself, dated to 1207 B.C. celebrates a military victory by the Pharaoh Merneptah.âIsrael is laid wasteâ it reads. This lets us know the Israelites were a separate people more than 3,000 years ago."
