In this contribution I compare two ways of structuring Old Testament stories: a structuralistic one that is founded on changes of place, time, action and persons, and the division of MT into open and closed paragraphs ( and ). Two parts of 2 Chronicles are investigated: the reign of Ahaziah (II Chr. 22:1-9/12) and the celebration of the passover and the death of Josiah (II Chr. 35:1-24). It appears that the second way of structuring does not agree with the first one at a number of crucial places. However, it seems to have its own logic, having to do with a preference to contrasts.
