David Rothstein, "A Textual History of Deuteronomy 11:4a and its Place in Traditions of the Reed Sea / Crossing," RdQ 28 (2016), 157-174
AbstractThe discovery of the biblical scrolls at Qumran has revolutionized scholars’ understanding of the textual history of the Hebrew Bible. Many textual variants that were previously attested only in the ancient translations or relatively late Jewish literary sources are now known to have been present in Hebrew Vorlagen of the Second Temple period. As recent studies have demonstrated, even where an Ur-form of a given text may be plausibly posited, this fact in no way mitigates the importance of understanding the significance of a textual “variant’s” (possible) meanings and it impact upon those communities preserving the reading. The present essay addresses one such variant. Specifically, it examines the active and personified nature of the Reed Sea, as reflected in the reading of Deut 11:4 preserved in several post-biblical sources, and addresses the relationship between this textual datum and other biblical and postbiblical traditions of the Reed Sea crossing.
Jeremy Penner, "The Words of the Luminaries as a Meditation on the Exile," RdQ 28 (2016), 175-190
AbstractThe Words of the Luminaries is a weekly liturgy that surveys Israel’s history from creation to the Babylonian exile. The impression gained from the extant material, however, is that within this historical survey the author tends to emphasize the exodus and subsequent wilderness wandering while glossing over stories from the period of the Patriarchs and Judges. The reason why is because of the typological richness of these stories and their pertinence for contemporary times: the exodus is a story of redemption, rebellion, and spiritual discipline, and as such a malleable paradigm in which to fit Israel’s current state of perceived exile and in which the need for penitential prayer is contextualized. This article will focus primarily on the use of scripture related to Israel’s experience of the exodus and wilderness to demonstrate that the author has artistically woven together a number of scriptural passages tied to these episodes in Israel’s history to craft an extended meditation on the exile and its present-day effects, and to demonstrate that God continues to fulfill scriptural promises to Israel in spite of these exilic difficulties.
Dominik Helms, "Jes 6,8–13 in 1QJesa," RdQ 28 (2016), 191-214
AbstractThe prophet Isaiah is sent to harden the Israelites’ heart. In the history of its interpretation, Is 6,9f. has raised a number of serious theological questions. The present study focusses on its representation in the manuscripts of the Dead Sea Scrolls, notably the great Isaiah-Scroll (1QIsaa VI 1–10). The analysis shows that some of the differences are not confined to the level of orthography and phonetics but have considerable implications for the understanding of the text. Following this presumption, the text attests to a different proposition. It shows the dissociation of Yachad and the authorities of the temple in Jerusalem. 1QIsaa VI 1–10 bears witness to an inner Jewish reception of Isaiah’s prophecy that gives expression to the self-conception of the group.
Rachel Hachlili, "Communal Meals at Qumran Revisited," RdQ 28 (2016), 215-256
AbstractThe communal meal at Khirbet Qumran was an attested practice, based on these factors: the two large ceramic assemblages found in pantries L89 and L114, and the animal bone deposits found within ceramic vessels, scattered in spaces between or outside buildings all over the site. This paper will inspect both the archaeological evidence for the existence of the communal meals at Khirbet Qumran and the period of time during which they took place.
Justin L. Pannkuk, "Are there למשכיל Sections in the Hodayot? Evidence from Cave 4," RdQ 28 (2016), 3-13
AbstractThis essay evaluates a proposal that one comes across in much of the secondary literature on the Hodayot: namely, that the collection of hymns preserved in 1QHa is comprised of smaller sets or groups that are each demarcated by a למשכיל heading. This proposal is examined in light of the comparative evidence for the arrangement of hymns in the Cave 4 manuscripts, especially 4QHa (4Q427) and 4QHe (4Q431). The analysis shows that the proposed למשכיל groups from 1QHa fail to obtain across the Cave 4 manuscripts, and it is suggested instead that the למשכיל incipits simply served as headings for the particular hymns with which they are paired.
Dennis Mizzi, "On the Meaning/s of טמאת האדם in the Damascus Document: A Textual Excavation of CD XII, 15b–17a," RdQ 28 (2016), 15-44
AbstractFor a passage that comprises a mere two lines, CD XII, 15b–17a has generated a considerable amount of scholarly literature. Its text has been amended a number of times, and its history of interpretation is characterized by a fluctuation of ideas. Depending on how it is read, this passage could potentially shed light on issues such as corpse impurity, the (im)purity of materials, and terminology pertaining to ritual uncleanness in the Damascus Document and the wider movement in which it was read. This paper analyses in detail the philological, literary, and socio-cultural context of CD XII, 15b–17a, with a particular focus on the meaning/s of the designation טמאת האדם , which is the key to understanding this passage. The conclusion is that, most likely, טמאת האדם refers to ritual impurity in general and not specifically to corpse impurity, the latter being the interpretation of the majority of commentators. In the process, this analysis contributes, by way of a practical example, a conceptual framework pertinent to lexicographical work on the Dead Sea Scrolls and highlights the challenges we must deal with when we attempt to explicate the meaning of certain lexical items in the Scrolls.
Émile Puech, "Les manuscrits de Qumrân inspirés du livre de Josué : 4Q378, 4Q379, 4Q175, 4Q522, 5Q9 et Mas1039-211," RdQ 28 (2016), 45-116
AbstractThe note proposes a new collation of the fragments of Hebrew manuscripts rewriting the Book of Joshua found at Qumran and Masada: 4Q378, 4Q379, 4Q175, 4Q522, 5Q9, and Mas1039-211. Their identification as copies of either the same original or different originals as well as the milieu of their author(s) depends mainly on their reading.
Kengo Akiyama, "The gēr in the Damascus Document: A Rejoinder," RdQ 28 (2016), 117-126
AbstractThis article responds to the recent proposal that the גר in the Damascus Document is a legal-rhetorical fiction. After summarising the argument for the fictitious גר , the article identifies three underlying assumptions and evaluates them in the light of wider and more recent discussions in Qumranology. It is argued that the “synchronic” reading of the sectarian texts are problematic and that it falls prey to over-harmonisation of evidence. It would be better to interpret the diverging attitudes towards the גר in the Dead Sea Scrolls as emanating from different communities or time periods, especially in the light of the recent move towards positing multiple communities behind the Scrolls.

Hempel, Charlotte, "The Long Text of the Serekh as Crisis Literature," RdQ 27 (2015), 3-24
AbstractThe rich manuscript tradition attested by the Community Rule from Qumran and its implications for our assessment of the relationship of the texts to the movement associated for a time with Khirbet Qumran have been the subject of vigorous debate in recent scholarship. This article offers a fresh assessment of the Community Rule manuscripts and their relationship to Khirbet Qumran. Rather than focusing on the remarkable differences between 1QS V-IX and 4QS close attention is paid here to 1QS I-IV; X-XI // 4QS— the framework of what can be called the ‘Long Text’ of S as represented particularly by 1QS and 4Q256 (Sb). A close reading of those parts of the Long Text of S that make it long reveals a heightened sense of theological reflection in a movement with a considerable history and internal challenges. We note further that the palaeographical dates of the copies of the Long Text cluster chronologically in the mid-Hasmonean period (125-75 BCE) suggesting that it is this period—aimed at overcoming a crisis of commitment in an established group—that is more likely associated with a move to the site of Qumran than community origins.
Angel, Joseph L., "The Material Reconstruction of 4QSongs of the Sageb (4Q511)," RdQ 27 (2015), 25-82
AbstractThis study presents the results of my attempt to materially reconstruct 4QSongs of the Sageb (4Q511). The major findings, substantiated by the detailed discussion presented here, may be summarized as follows: (1) 4Q511 was at least 2 meters long and contained at least sixteen columns of writing. (2) Fragments representing material from fifteen out of the sixteen reconstructed columns can be arranged in their original order. (3) Columns contained at least 25 lines of writing, yielding a minimum column height of about 17.5 cm. (4) The composition contained in 4Q511 is not simply identical to the composition preserved in 4Q510, as scholars have assumed generally. It is more likely that they represent differing recensions of the same work or two different works, one of which has depended on the other, or both of which have depended on a common source.
Reymond, Eric D., "New Hebrew Text of Ben Sira Chapter 1 in Ms A (T-S 12.863)," RdQ 27 (2015), 83-98
AbstractThe article proposes a reading of some of the offset letters in Hebrew Ms A, that is, the letters that have transferred from the preceding and still missing first folio page of the manuscript. Among other things, the article proposes that the offset letters in Ms A I recto, lines 1-4 are the remnants of Ben Sira chapter 1, the Hebrew text of which is not otherwise known. Surprisingly, the Hebrew text matches closely the Syriac translation at the end of chapter 1 and not the Greek. The Syriac translation contains what are considered to be secondary, later additions. It is this additional material that is reflected in the offset Hebrew letters of Ms A I recto, lines 1-4.
Puech, Emile, "La Lettre essénienne MMT dans le manuscrit 4Q397 et les parallèles," RdQ 27 (2015), 99-136
AbstractThe identification of a new fragment belonging to the last column of the manuscript 4Q397 requires the reconstruction of the last three columns of the manuscript with 18 lines per column. This recovers a continuous text for 4QMMT Epilogue. Another small fragment needs to be relocated in the column of the fragments 6-13 of the legal section of the Letter in order to give an equal height to the column and to reformat three other columns of the manuscript, six successives columns in all.
Tervanotko, Hanna, "Members of Levite Family and Ideal marriages in Aramaic Levi Document, Visions of Amram, and Jubilee," RdQ 27 (2015), 155-176
AbstractThe marriage practices of the members of the family of Levi in general and their preference to marry within their family in particular have received attention in the recent scholarship. This study analyzes how Jubilees, the Ara-maic Levi Document and the visions of Amram portray the ideal marriages of the members of the Levite family. After carefully reading those passages of these texts, that highlight women and ideal partners, I argue that these texts are interested exclusively with women of Levite origin. The primary function of women in these texts is to provide the right pedigree for the members of the Levite family. In addition to the previously argued views, I propose that the members of the Levite family, who are treated as early prototypes for the high priest, are subject to the marriage rule of the high priest who had to marry a daughter of another priest. This rule triumphed over all other regulations, including the Pentateuchal marriage laws. By making the Levites take spouses from their own family, the authors turn the Levites into exemplary figures who followed the priestly rulings before they were given at Sinai. Finally, it will be pointed out that the Aramaic Levi Document and the visions of Amram do not reduce Levite women to a reproductive role but develop the concept of ideal spouses further than Jubilees does.
Karner, Gerhard, "Ben Sira ms A fol. I recto and fol. VI verso (t-S 12.863) revisited," RdQ 27 (2015), 177-203
AbstractThis article offers some remarks on the reading of the offset letters preserved on the first lines of Ms A folio I recto and folio VI verso. As Eric D. Reymond has recently observed, the traces on Ms A I recto, lines 1–4 indeed reflect parts of a Hebrew version that corresponds to a portion of text hitherto only known from the Syriac translation. Discussing the reading of the offset traces proposed by Reymond, the article offers an analysis of its own and demonstrates how image manipulation programs can help to both reconstruct missing text as well as check the results. Among other observations the article proposes a reconstruction of the barely legible offset traces on Ms A VI verso, which seems to suggest that the now lost Hebrew text of Sir 16:26b–29 might correspond to an expanded textual form as preserved in the Syriac version of Codex Ambrosianus (7aI).
Heger, Paul, "The Husband’s or Father’s Authority to Annul His Wife’s or Daughter’s Vows Introduction," RdQ 27 (2015), 205-223
Abstracthe rules about the husband’s authority to annul his wife’s vows and oaths in CD XVI 6-12 and 4Q416 (4QInstrb) 2iv 6-11seem at first sight to be conflicting. Whereas 4Q416 decrees the husband’s unlimited author-ity, the CD seems to limit it. Cecilia Wassen indeed confirms this diver-gence, alleging that the CD restricts the husband’s annulment authority exclusively to commitments which conflict with scriptural law. After an extensive analysis of the scriptural sources, and their rabbinic interpreta-tion, the study effects a meticulous scrutiny of the CD text, and postu-lates the notion that the CD does not restrict the husband’s authority, but advices him how to proceed regarding a commitment by his wife, which seems to conflict with a particular Qumran regulation. Hence, the two sources are not contradictory.
Scacewater, Todd, "The Literary unity of 1Qm and its three-Stage War," RdQ 27 (2015), 225-248
AbstractThis article provides an account of the war in 1QM that attempts to resolve supposed contradictions and interpretive difficulties, which have occa-sioned multiple redactional theories. The thesis is that the war includes three-stages. Although a three-stage war has been suggested before, the present essay presents a different three-stage war that does more justice to the lan-guage of the war’s outline in 1QM, to the Old Testament passages used to present the various stages of the war, and to the competency of the author and possible redactor(s). This thesis does not rule out redactional activity, but sug-gests that the extant copy of 1QM presents a unified account of the war.
Lee, Lydia, "Fiery Sheol in the Dead Sea Scrolls," RdQ 27 (2015), 249-270
AbstractThis paper highlights that a fiery underworld is attested in several Qum-ran texts, expressed through the uniquely Hebraic term “Sheol” (שׁאול). This topic has often gone unnoticed in studies of the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS). A scholarly consensus has been reached about the existence of a dualistic post-mortem judgment in several DSS, such that people await either reward or punishment after death. As noted by Klawans, however, primary emphasis has been placed on the kinds of reward, whether in the form of physical resurrection or immortality of the soul, envisioned in these texts. There is a general neglect of the DSS’s perceptions of the post-mortem punishment. The situation is most recently remedied by Nebe’s article entitled “Scheol in den Schriften vom Toten Meer.” Even though Nebe does summarily notice that one scroll (4Q491 frg. 10 II 17) depicts the fiery judgment of God reaching down to Sheol, he does not observe that several other scrolls from Qumran (1QM XIV 16-18; 4Q491 frgs. 8-10 I 13b-15; 1QHa IV 25-26a; 4Q184 frg. 1 6-11a) begin to associate Sheol with fire even more closely. This paper thus fills the lacuna by elucidating the fiery nature of post-mortem punishments in the Sheol of the DSS.
Høgenhaven, Jesper, "the Language of the Copper Scroll: A renewed examination," RdQ 27 (2015), 271-301
AbstractIn the editio princeps (DJD III, 1962) of the Copper Scroll (3Q15) J. T. Milik defines its Hebrew as a dialect of Mishnaic Hebrew (MH), a description that has been both contested and defended by subsequent scholars. This article surveys main lines of the discussion, and attempts a fresh descrip-tion of important features of the Hebrew of 3Q15, on the basis of the improved text edition by Émile Puech now available (2006). A comprehensive analysis of the language in 3Q15 confirms, and provides additional evidence for the findings of Milik and other scholars. Features shared by 3Q15 and MH include: Patterns of noun formation, the consistent use of the plural ending ין the exclusive use of the relative pronoun ש, the frequent employment of the possessive pronoun של, the use of adjectives of world direction (rather than construct chains). The most striking affinity between 3Q15 and MH is in the vocabulary. As would be expected, 3Q15 has a great number of lexemes which are common to all relevant types of Hebrew (Biblical Hebrew (BH), Qumran Hebrew (QH), and MH). However, of some 89 lexemes in 3Q15, which occur only in some of these “types” of Hebrew, 33 are shared exclusively by 3Q15 and MH texts. 19 of these have distinct synonyms in BH, and 13 have coun-terparts in both BH and QH. 3Q15, then, has more points of contact with MH than with any other relevant type of ancient Hebrew.

Najman, Hindy; Tigchelaar, Eibert, "A Preparatory Study of Nomenclature and Text Designation in the Dead Sea Scrolls," RdQ 26 (2014), 305-326
AbstractThis article considers the history of nomenclature for the Dead Sea Scrolls, as reflected in the names given to manuscripts in the official editions in the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert Series (some attention is given to the nomenclature in more recent editorial projects). Sometimes names were derived from the manuscripts themselves. Often, however, names (such as Apocryphon) reflect the supposition of a canonical divide. Or they assume a differentiation between sectarian and nonsectarian texts. Or scrolls are described in generic terms borrowed from the study of other corpora. While such names are evidence of the editors’ attempts to understand a new corpus and fragmentary manuscripts of many new works, they also govern the way we read the scrolls. The aim of this article is to review the former processes of naming scrolls, and to offer some preliminary directions for the renaming, reclassifying, and rethinking of the scrolls.
Reymond, Eric D, "New Readings in the Ben Sira Masada Scroll (Mas 1h)," RdQ 26 (2014), 327-346
AbstractThe present short note documents new readings in the Ben Sira Masada Scroll derived from the new photographs provided online at www.bensira. org. In addition to offering new possibilities for reading some difficult passages, the new readings demonstrate that the orthography was not as predictable as some past scholars have suggested.
Uusimäki, Elisa, "Happy Is the Person to Whom She Has Been Given: The Continuum of Wisdom and Torah in 4QSapiential Admonitions B (4Q185) and 4QBeatitudes (4Q525)," RdQ 26 (2014), 345-361
AbstractThis article examines the association of wisdom and Torah in two wisdom texts, 4QSapiential Admonition B(4Q185) and 4QBeatitudes (4Q525), known from Qumran Cave 4. As is well-known, wisdom and Torah—which in this article refers to a broad concept rather than the Pentateuch or a collection of laws alone—became connected in Second Temple Judaism to such an extent that at times a clear distinction no longer exists between them. Indeed, both 4Q185 and 4Q525 make use of the feminine, third person singular suffix ,ה which can refer to both wisdom and Torah as both are feminine words in their grammatical gender. The article argues that the authors employed the suffix as a pedagogical and literary device to point out their essential identification.
Bakker, Arjen, "The God of Knowledge: Qumran Reflections on Divine Prescience Based on 1 Sam 2:3," RdQ 26 (2014), 361-374
AbstractThe first section of this contribution discusses Michael Segal’s argument that the Septuagint and Qumran readings of 1 Sam 2:3 are based on the same version which is an emendation of the Masoretic text’s ktiv. The second section discusses four passages that are based on interpretations of 1 Sam 2:3 (1QS III 15-16; 4Q417 1 i 7-9; 1QHa XX 12-14; 4Q402 4 12 par). These passages connect specific connotations to the expression God of knowledge. The main point in discussing the passages is to demonstrate that they engage in an abstract reflection on the nature of divine prescience. This abstract reflection is based on the study of texts: 1 Sam 2:3 and other texts were scrutinized in the course of meditations on profound theological questions.
Mason, Steve, "The Priest Josephus Away from the Temple: A Changed Man?," RdQ 26 (2014), 375-402
AbstractMichael Tuval's recent book, from Jerusalem Priest to Roman Jew (Tübingen, 2013), offers a sweeping reinterpretation of the works of Josephus in the context of Diaspora Judaism. Developing approaches initiated by Daniel R. Schwartz, Tuval understands Josephus to have undergone a dramatic change of identity between the composition of his two major histories, from being a temple-centred Jerusalem priest to embracing the temple-less values of his adoptive Judaean home. This article works through some issues of method and considers illustrative texts to test the explanatory hypothesis. It sympathetically challenges both Tuval’s portrait of Diaspora Judaism and his explanation of Josephus’ works against that background.
Erder, Yoram, "Understanding the Qumran Sect in View of Early Karaite Halakhah from the Geonic Period," RdQ 26 (2014), 403-424
AbstractResearch about the influence of Qumranic Halakha on the Karaite Mourners of Zion can enlarge our knowledge not only on early Karaism, but also on main disputes that divided the Jewish sects in the antiquity. The three halakhic issues discussed in this article shed light on the meaning to the Qumran sect of living in the desert. Defining themselves as the “exiles of the wildernessˮ, they did not observe most of the commandments, which they considered as pertaining to the Land of Israel, as the Israelites before them during their sojourn in the wilderness. The three Halakhic issues discussed here are: a. the “desert passoverˮ (Numbers 9) and “Hezekiah passoverˮ (1 chr 29-30). b. the half-shekel issue (Exod 30: 11-16). c. the consuming of “desired meatˮ (Deut 12: 20-21).
Najman, Hindy; Tigchelaar, Eibert, "Unity after Fragmentation," RdQ 26 (2014), 495-500

VanderKam, James, "Jubilees as the Composition of One Author?," RdQ 26 (2014), 501-516
AbstractThe essay evaluates three recent hypotheses about subsequent modifications to the original text of the Book of Jubilees: (1) addition of eschatological texts (C. Berner), (2) interpolation of a series of passages (J. Kugel), and (3) addition of legal sections to pre-existing rewritten stories and encasing both types of material in a chronological framework (M. Segal). All three hypotheses as formulated by these scholars are found to be unconvincing, although the third in a reformulated way provides a more defensible account of the evidence.
Kugel, James, "The Compositional History of the Book of Jubilees," RdQ 26 (2014), 517-538
AbstractThe author of Jubilees chose to write a retelling of the book of Genesis precisely because its events are all situated before the great revelation of divine law at Mount Sinai. His central argument was that Israel had been bound to God long before Sinai: in his retelling, God had chosen Israel as His special people on the sixth day of Creation, and various ancestors of the people of Israel had been tied by covenants to God and had kept various laws (including those connected with the biblical festivals and other holy days) well before the Sinai revelation. He thus sought to argue that, even if Israel had violated the Sinai covenant and had subsequently been exiled, this hardly spelled the end of Israel’s special status as God’s own people. Sometime after the completion of the original book, an interpolator inserted a number of passages that sought to correct what he considered an objectionable element in the original, the implication that some of the Torah’s laws had originated in practices adopted by Israel’s ancestors on their own initiative. “Not so!” he claimed; long before the time of those ancestors, those divine laws had been inscribed on high in the “Heavenly Tablets.”
van Ruiten, Jacques T.A.G.M., "Some Questions with Regard to a Supposed Interpolator in the Book of Jubilees Focused on the Festival of Weeks (Jub. 6:1-22)," RdQ 26 (2014), 539-554
AbstractThis contribution brings forward some questions with regard to Kugel’s hypothesis about a supposed interpolator who would have inserted several additions in a nearly finished text of the book of Jubilees. Without denying the fact that there are tensions within the text of the book, the question remains whether these all disappear when the passages of the supposed interpolator are removed. Kugel asserts that a deterministic worldview is characteristic of the supposed interpolator. However, the rest of the text also often shows this deterministic worldview. The unique relationship between God and Israel is incorporated in the order of the creation. Most important is the relativizing of the Sinaitic covenant. The first celebration of a certain festival does not point to the fact that they themselves invented these festivals out of the blue, but to the fact that Israel was already ordered to celebrate these festivals before the Sinaitic covenant. The patriarchs celebrated them on earth in accordance with what was written on the heavenly tablets, and in accordance with how they had already been celebrated in heaven from the time of the creation. In contrast to what Kugel asserts, the strong parallelism between Jub. 14 and Jub. 15 makes clear that Abraham celebrates not two different festivals but just one, the very same Festival of Weeks, in which he renews the covenant in the middle of the third month.
Segal, Michael, "The Dynamics of Composition and Rewriting in Jubilees and Pseudo-Jubilees," RdQ 26 (2014), 555-578
AbstractThe compositional process of the book of Jubilees has recently become the subject of intense debate among scholars of Second Temple Judaism in general, and the Dead Sea scrolls in particular. Scholarship on Jubilees has generally followed a synoptic approach, comparing the text of Jubilees to the extant versions of the Pentateuch deemed closest to it. As I have already suggested in previous studies, the literary development of Jubilees is in fact much more complex. While in my previous studies, I referred to the book in its current form as the product of “redaction”, here, I suggest that it is more appropriate to use the term “composition”. This study investigates and explores the implications of this proposed literary model, based upon an examination of three Qumran scrolls known as Pseudo-Jubilees (4Q225-4Q227), and their relationship to Jubilees. The analysis below suggests, in contrast to the generally posited direction of development, that 4Q227 is in fact a source adopted by Jubilees as part of its compositional process. The latter, in its current complex literary form, was then itself subject to further rewriting in 4Q225-4Q226. These examples lead to a discussion of the implications of dynamic process of rewriting and composition for both the study of Jubilees and for appreciating broader trends in the transmission and hermeneutics of ancient Jewish texts.
Tigchelaar, Eibert, "The Qumran Jubilees Manuscripts as Evidence for the Literary Growth of the Book," RdQ 26 (2014), 579-594
AbstractWhereas scholarship generally assumes a fixed text of Jubilees by the second century B.C.E., this article explores the evidence for first-century B.C.E. revisions and Fortschreibungen. The combined evidence of 4Q216 and 4Q217 hints at a first-century B.C.E. addition to Jub. 1, and the absence of Jub. 23:32 from 4Q176 frag. 21 may indicate subsequent Fortschreibung. The article argues, following Milik, for a manuscript bisection of Jubilees, and for a reassignment of 4Q176 frag. 21 to 4Q221. An appendix presents the hitherto unpublished fragment 4Q221 frag. 20.
Monger, Matthew Phillip, "4Q216 and the State of Jubilees at Qumran," RdQ 26 (2014), 595-612
AbstractThis essay presents a preliminary analysis of 4Q216 from the perspective of material philology, and comments on the implications of reading the Qumran Jubilees fragments from a material perspective. By taking seriously the materiality of the Qumran Jubilees manuscripts, it is argued that there were likely not 14 complete manuscripts of Jubilees t Qumran. In addition, this analysis calls into question the commonly held view that there is a high level of literary and textual stability connecting the Hebrew manuscripts from Qumran to Ethiopic manuscripts dating from the late fourteenth century C.E. and later. In light of the material composition of 4Q216, it is suggested that the manuscript may show evidence of the literary development of Jubilees during the Qumran period. In addition, a number of variants between the 4Q216 and Ethiopic Jubilees point toward the development of diverging trajectories within the Jubilees tradition post-Qumran.
van Ruiten, Jacques T.A.G.M., "The Use and Interpretation of the Book of Jubilees in the Măṣḥăfă Milad," RdQ 26 (2014), 613-630
AbstractThis contribution deals with the use and interpretation of the book of Jubilees in the Măṣḥăfă Milad. Most references to the book of Jubilees in the Măṣḥăfă Milad are explicit quotations, the wording of which is very close to the text of Jubilees. Despite the abundant explicit mentions, the actual number of passages is very limited: Jub. 4:17-25 (Enoch), Jub. 16:1-5 (Abraham receiving the three men, as a symbol of the Trinity), often combined with Jub. 1:27-28; 2:2, 18 (angel of the presence; angel of the sanctification). The only exception to this are the passages that allude to Adam (Jub. 3:27) and the early life of Abraham (Jub. 11:18; 12:12-14; 14-15). The book of Jubilees is read and interpreted through Christian eyes, in particular it is seen to express the Trinitarian view of Zar’a Ya‘aqob. This is no different from how the text interprets the Old Testament. In other words, the book of Jubilees is read in the same way as other books of the Old Testament.

Chazon, Esther G., "Low to Lofty: The Hodayot's Use of Liturgical Traditions to Shape Sectarian Identity and Religious Experience," RdQ 26 (2013), 3-19
AbstractThe Hodayot’s signature feature is the hymnist’s thanksgiving for his election by divine grace and elevation from a base, sinful spirit to a state of purification, heavenly knowledge, and common lot with the angels. The present paper shows how, in creating this feature, the hodayot adapt and juxtapose two divergent liturgical traditions—those of penitential prayer (Part 1) and of praying with the angels (Part 2). The final part of the paper (Part 3) demonstrates that the same strategy is adopted at the editorial level of the 1QHa and 4QHb manuscripts. These manuscripts build to a numinous climax by increasing the intensity of joint human-angelic praise toward their conclusion, capped by the penultimate Self-Glorification Hymn. At the same time, they keep the penitential motifs and the election/human baseness dialectic in view to the end. Hence, the liturgical traditions of penitential prayer and praying with the angels are used, at the editorial as well as the compositional stages, to magnify the sense of privileged elevation from a base, sinful state to the sublime state of communion with the angels in singing God’s praise together.
Jacobus, Helen R., "The Babylonian Lunar Three and the Qumran Calendars of the Priestly Courses: A Response," RdQ 26 (2013), 21-51
AbstractThis paper responds to the theory that information, known as “X” and “dwq” in some of the manuscripts of the calendars of the priestly courses, 4Q320, 4Q321a and 4Q321, is related to a group of techniques itemised in Babylonian astronomical texts, called the Lunar Three. It is suggested that a direct comparison is problematic and that possible Hellenistic influences may be discerned in the calendars of the priestly courses as well as in parts of the Aramaic Astronomical Book of Enoch, 4Q208–4Q209. The essay concludes that a new theoretical basis for researching the calendars in the Dead Sea Scrolls in a comparative context is needed.
Heger, Paul, "Celibacy in Qumran—Hellenistic Fiction or Reality? Qumran’s Attitude Toward Sex," RdQ 26 (2013), 53-90
AbstractThe study tries to demonstrate the imaginative nature of the Hellenistic historians’ descriptions of the Essenes (assumed to be identical with the Qumran community) that influenced our views on Qumran’s attitude toward marriage, women, and sexual life before the discovery of the Qumran writings. In light of this evidence of unreliability, the author proposes that these portrayals be ignored, concluding that the Qumranites were not celibate, held no derogatory opinions about women, and had no aversion to marriage or to the enjoyment of legally permitted sexual activity.
Mizrahi, Noam, "The Linguistic History of מדהבה : From Textual Corruption to Lexical Innovation," RdQ 26 (2013), 91-114
AbstractThe paper discusses the linguistic history of the Hebrew word ,מדהבה which is a hapax legomenon in the Bible (Isa 14:4), but is also documented several times in the Dead Sea scrolls. Since text-critics commonly hold it to result from a scribal mistake (the original reading being מרהבה , as witnessed by 1QIsaa), its sense and distribution throughout the Second Temple period have eluded explanation thus far, and the exact relation between the two corpora of Biblical and Qumran Hebrew remains obscure. It is proposed that sound changes peculiar to the Greco-Roman period have facilitated a lexical reanalysis of מדהבה , and that the word was eventually integrated into the lexicon of Second Temple Hebrew by means of associative etymology, which is a recognized mechanism of semantic change.

Drawnel, Henryk, "Some Notes on the Aramaic Manuscripts from Qumran and Late Mesopotamian Culture," RdQ 26 (2013), 145-167
AbstractThe present study summarizes the results of several years of research into the relationship between Late Babylonian cuneiform culture and Jewish Aramaic literature. The overview of that relationship indicates that the Jewish writers did not hesitate to adopt and adapt into the structure of Jewish religion some religious, literary, and scientific patterns that enriched the Judaism of the Second Temple period with new religious perspectives. One has to assume that the contact between the Jewish religion and Mesopotamian culture detectable in Jewish Aramaic literature took place in Mesopotamia, not in Israel.
Puech, Émile, "4Q225 revisité: un midrash essénien?," RdQ 26 (2013), 169-210
AbstractThis note offers a largely renewed edition of the three fragments of the 4Q225 manuscript which we waited for with great expectation. They will enable us to better understand and qualify the remains of this document, which is not without some importance for the Qumran Studies. It results that the manuscript could not belong to the so-called Pseudo-Jubilees.
Wold, Benjamin, "The Universality of Creation in 4QInstruction," RdQ 26 (2013), 211-226
AbstractThis study offers a critical examination of two passages from 4QInstruction (4Q417 1 i 13-18; 4Q423 1) and finds a new interpretation of the creation and division of humanity. In 4QInstruction all of humankind was created in the likeness of God and angels and they all originally sought mysterious, revealed wisdom as well as the knowledge of good and evil. In one of the fragments studied, the pursuit of mysteries is compared to tending the Garden of Eden. In the metaphor, the ones expelled from the garden are the foolish who failed to search for knowledge and are no longer able to cultivate wisdom that produces fruit. These ungodly ones are called the “fleshly spirit” and are separated from the Mēvîn by their activities and failures. Finally, 4QInstruction reflects that divisions within humanity are the result of dualities within human beings.
Puech, Émile, "4Q252 : « Commentaire de la Genèse A » ou « Bénédictions patriarcales» ?," RdQ 26 (2013), 227-252
AbstractA great number of studies have already been dedicated to the manuscript 4Q252, however scholars do not find agreement on its content, literary genre, or even on how the composition should be titled. This study offers a careful assessment of the preserved fragments, in order to approach better the aim pursued by the author, and by the same token to expose more clearly his identity.
Reymond, Eric, "Fast Talk: Ben Sira’s Thoughts on Speech in Sir 5:9-6:1," RdQ 26 (2013), 253-273
AbstractThis paper analyzes a single passage from the Book of Ben Sira, Sir 5:9- 6:1, in order to demonstrate how each ancient version of this passage reveals a slightly different emphasis or idea. Each version, moreover, exhibits a distinct structure that reflects its specific idea. The significance of this for the book as a whole is that it illustrates how an ancient reader’s or scribe’s wish to find or impose a coherence in the text could lead to him or her altering the text in deliberate as well as accidental ways.

Puech, Émile, "Synthèse des observations sur la nécropole de Khirbet Qumrân: Tombes d’Esséniens et tombes de bédouins ," RdQ 25 (2012), 335-368
AbstractThese pages try to take stock of the archaeological data and of anthropological studies of the cemeteries of Khirbet Qumran, and to establish a status quaestionis based on verifiable observations. They confirm the distinction between the tombs of the Essenes dated to Periods Ia-b and II and the tombs of bedouins in the 2nd millennium. Further, the funerary practices of celibate Essenes agree totally with their belief in the resurrection of the flesh as clearly presented in the notice of Hippolytus of Rome, far from the more common belief in immortality of the soul which Flavius Josephus attributes to them.
Drawnel, Henryk, "The Punishment of Asael (1 En. 10:4-8) and Mesopotamian Anti-Witchcraft Literature ," RdQ 25 (2012), 369-394  
AbstractThe literary pattern of Asael’s punishment in the Enochic myth does not seem to stem from biblical literature or Greek mythology. It is far more probable that one has to look for its antecedents in Babylonian anti-witchcraft literature. The Jewish author who lived in Mesopotamia in Late Babylonian period treated Asael and other Watchers as warlocks against whom exorcistic rituals have to be applied. The elimination of Asael and other Watchers from the earthly realm paved the way for the Jewish context of knowledge transmission, exemplified by Enoch and his insight into the structure of the world, revealed to him by angels faithful to God of Israel.
Rey, Jean-Sébastien, "Un nouveau feuillet du manuscrit D de Ben Sira: notes de philologie et de critique textuelle," RdQ 25 (2012), 395-422
AbstractThis article offers an edition of the new Ben Sira fragment of manuscript D identified by Sarah Cohen and published by S. Elizur and M. Rand. The analysis focuses essentially on the textual criticism of Sir 7 :18-8 :18 attested by this witness. The text is evaluated in relation to the other Hebrew manuscripts (A and C) as well as to the Greek and Syriac versions. The study shows that both witnesses A and D contain similar alterations and probably belong to a same family of manuscripts.
Puech, Émile, "Jérusalem dans les Manuscrits de la Mer Morte ," RdQ 25 (2012), 423-438
AbstractThe lecture presents the main passages of non-Biblical manuscripts found at Qumrân related to Jerusalem/Zion and its temple. They are divided in three groups: the historical Jerusalem, the ideal Jerusalem, the ideal Jerusalem according to the Law, and the New Jerusalem. First is given a survey of the history of their composition.
Brooke, George J., "Authority and the Authoritativeness of Scripture: Some Clues from the Dead Sea Scrolls ," RdQ 25 (2012), 507-523  
AbstractThis essay suggests that the authority of texts has to be construed on the basis of at least three complementary facets of textual study and analysis. First, there is the text itself. By considering the six-part, triple-axis dynamic of compositions as indicated in actantial analysis this study identifies some of the features of any text that might be construed as authoritative: this might be suitably labelled as “actantial authority.” Second, there is the interdependence of author and audience, through which authority is encouraged and endorsed; this can be called “authorial and audience authority.” Third, there is the function of the text in different settings and contexts: authority might be discerned in everything contextual such as the artefactual data of the manuscript evidence, the possible effectiveness of the text as speech-act, and the much wider ideological frame of reference that makes a composition relevant for any particular group or community: this can be named as “acted authority.” Thus authority in texts, both scriptural and non-scriptural, is a polyphonous affair.
García Martínez, Florentino, "Parabiblical Literature from Qumran and the Canonical Process ," RdQ 25 (2012), 525-556  
AbstractAfter clarifying how the author understands the terms “parabiblical” literature (namely, as referring to all compositions of the collections of Qumran, except those which later will be incorporated in Tanak) and “canonical process” (that is, as a development not yet completed in which “canonical” is understood as authoritative or normative), this article shows what books were considered authoritative or normative within the collection, presenting four of the authority conferring strategies used for this purpose: Divine authority, rewriting, interpretation, and “the voice of the Teacher.” The essay’s conclusion is that at this time of development in the “canonical process,” all the books which would later form the Torah, or the five books of Moses, were clearly recognized as authoritative and normative (and thus “canonical”), and that there was a second group of authoritative writings referred to as “the Prophets.” This group of writings, however, is not identical with the Nebi’im of Tanak, since it also included Daniel and the Psalms. The essay also concludes that other books, as well as the core “sectarian” compositions, were considered authoritative and normative (and thus “canonical”).
Martone, Corrado, "Qumran Readings in Agreement with the Septuagint Against the Masoretic Text. Part Three: 1 Samuel ," RdQ 25 (2012), 557-573  
AbstractThis essay presents a list of the passages in the Qumran manuscripts of 1 Samuel that may be considered in agreement with the Septuagint, against the Masoretic text. In addition, the bibliographic reference to the editio princeps of each manuscript, and a brief palaeographical description, is given.

AbstractPreceding editions of the hebrew text of Ben Sira differ considerably for Sir 10,12-12,1. In this aricle, we offer a re-edition of the Elkan Natan Adler’s bifolio of Ben Sira 10,12-12,1 on the basis of new photographs and we attempt to overcome the difficulties in some readings. After the edition, we provide an apparatus criticus, notes on the readings, a new translation and philological notes.
Steudel, Annette, "The Damascus Document (D) as a Rewriting of the Community Rule (S) ," RdQ 25 (2012), 605-620  
AbstractThe present study undertakes a literary comparison of the Community Rule (S) and the Damascus Document (D). It turns out that D closely follows the textual organization of 1QS V-VII. The long Fourth Admonition in D is in basic parts an elaboration of 1QS V,1-7a. The reference to 1QS V-VII skips the middle part of D, and continues directly in CD XV (1QS V,7b). From there it can be traced, almost verse by verse, until the end of the Penal Code in D. Reference to 1QS V-VII thus covers nearly the whole composition of D. It is lacking only in D’s large middle part, apart from its edges, and in the beginning and end of D, which parallel sections of 1QS I-IV. An interesting role in the further development of D is not only played by the Book of Jubilees, but also by 1QS VIII-IX, which might have been composed by S as a reaction to D’s rewriting of 1QS V-VII, but it also influenced D. As a whole, the Damascus Document is best understood as a rewriting (Fortschreibung) of the Community Rule, although D also shaped S.
Tigchelaar, Eibert, "The Poetry of The Wiles of the Wicked Woman ( 4Q184 ) ," RdQ 25 (2012), 621-633  
AbstractThis article surveys previous work on the poetry of 4Q184 1 (Wiles of the Wicked Woman), including the matter of the regularity or irregularity of stanzas. The sections “Vocabulary and syntax” and “Parallelism and style” present brief, and in part new, observations on some of the poet’s techniques, involving Janus parallelism, the use of uncommon forms of words, and uncommon syntactical constructions.
Trebolle, Julio, "Yahwe’s Spirit of Deceit: Textual Variants that Make a Difference (1 Kgs 22) ," RdQ 25 (2012), 635-675  
AbstractIn the Qumran Period, the order of the literary units as well as their text could fluctuate, generating different editions of a number of biblical books. 1. This paper explores the connection of the petuÌah and setumah divisions in the Masoretic tradition with the different arrangement of pericopae in MT and LXX as well as the insertion of literary units in either text. 2. Readings of the OL in Kings witnessing a pre-Lucianic text have a special value in order to reconstruct the Old Greek text and its Hebrew Vorlage, particularly in the junctures between pericopes or at the initial and final points of an interpolation where significant textual variants mostly occur. 3. The Antiochean/ Old Greek reading kaì efipen Oû dunßsjÇ, kaì efipen ˆEn soí (1 Kgs 22:20) qualified as “an exception” or as “corrupt” preserves the text of the dialogue of Yahweh and the spirit of deceit in a striking form free of the censure suffered by the MT.

Rogland, Max, "Eggs and Vipers in Isaiah 59 and the Qumran Hodayot ," RdQ 25 (2011), 3-16
AbstractThis article examines the clause למזורות יבקעו אפעה ושוא בהתרומם גליהם in 1QHa X 29-30 [II 27-28], which is widely viewed as an intertextual “echo” of וְהַזּוּרֶה תִּבָּקַע אֶפְעֶה in Isa 59:5. Both passages contain many philological and exegetical difficulties, however, making it difficult to discern the connection between the two texts. As a result, many scholars maintain that, in the Hodayot, אפעה does not mean “viper” as it does in Biblical and Rabbinic Hebrew but rather means something like “wickedness” or “vanity”. This article seeks to clarify the correct interpretation of Isa 59:5 and to shed light upon its subsequent echo in 1QHa X. It argues that אפעה is best understood as “viper” in the Hodayot texts and that the discrepancy between Isa 59:5 and 1QHa X is not as great as is often assumed.
Dimant, Devorah, "Pseudo-Ezekiel and the Apocryphon of Jeremiah C in Perspective ," RdQ 25 (2011), 17-39
AbstractThe article reviews recent discussions on various aspects of Pseudo- Ezekiel and the Apocryphon of Jeremiah C, published since the first edition appeared in 2001. The survey shows that the division to these two compositions is valid and is dictated by the different literary and thematic character of each one. The article also rejects the separation of 4Q390 from other copies of the Apocryphon of Jeremiah C and reiterates the arguments for identifying it as a copy of the Apocryphon. In addition the article points to several issues which have not been addressed by the scholarly discussions. Among them are the particular way of reworking the Hebrew Bible and adopted by each composition, the complex biblical exgesis supporting the idea of resurrection of the righteous in Pseudo-Ezekiel, and the meaning and import of the affinity shown by the Apocryphion of Jeremiah to the Qumran sectarian literature.
Jassen, Alex, "What Exactly is Prohibited in the Field? A New Suggestion for Understanding the Text and Context of CD 10:20-21 ," RdQ 25 (2011), 41-62
AbstractThis article examines a passage in the Damascus Document’s Sabbath Code that has long eluded full explanation. CD 10:20-21 seems to proscribe an individual from walking through a field on the Sabbath, though the precise details of the law are unclear. The uncertainty regarding the meaning of this passage is due in large part to the apparent textual corruption found in the medieval manuscript of the Damascus Document (MS A). Analysis of this passage begins by examining the textual evidence along with a review of the merits and drawbacks of the three primary explanations proposed by Solomon Schechter, Louis Ginzberg, and Chaim Rabin. This article argues that the full meaning of this passage and its correct emendation can only be understood through exploration of its legal-exegetical use of Isa 58:13. A more nuanced treatment of the exegetical technique of this passage argues in favor of the general interpretation of this passage as a prohibition against traveling through one’s field on the Sabbath to assess what tasks need to be done after the Sabbath. Examination of CD 10:20-21 in the context of its exegetical reformulation of Isa 58:13 brings into sharper focus the textual difficulties and provides a context for the emendation of CD 10:20-21 proposed here.
Puech, Émile. , "Khirbet Qumrân et les Esséniens ," RdQ 25 (2011), 63-102  
AbstractIn the course of the discoveries of the caves with scrolls and of the excavations of Khirbet Qumran, the Essene hypothesis became generally accepted despite some opposition. But during the last two decades, a surge of contradictory opinions has attempted to dismiss the case. This note presents a history and a status quæstionis of researches and tries to show that the accepted identification has not yet been overthrown, since it raises fewer questions without proper answers than the proposed hypotheses which contradict each other.
Livneh, Atar, "Judgment and Revenge: The Exodus Account in Jubilees 48 ," RdQ 25 (2011), 161-175  
AbstractThis paper analyzes the Exodus account in Jub. 48 as a story of judgment and revenge. The Jubilean author reworks the two-fold promise given by God to Abraham in the Covenant between the Pieces in two units (vv. 2–8, 9–19) in order to demonstrate that the plagues constitute the “judgment” God pledges to bring upon the nation enslaving his descendants and that the Israelites would leave Egypt with great wealth. He further depicts Moses’ commissioning as serving to execute judgment upon the Egyptians, reinforcing the Leitmotif of “taking revenge.”
Fröhlich, Ida, "Medicine and Magic in Genesis Apocryphon. Ideas on Human Conception and its Hindrances ," RdQ 25 (2011), 177-198  
AbstractGenesis Apocryphon, a paraphrase of selected narratives from Genesis was written with an exegetical purpose. One of the author’s main exegetical interests is in proving that the purity of certain female characters endangered in unusual situations was defended; attesting their purity leads to confirming the geneological purity of their offspring. This exegetical object is served by extending the biblical narrative with additions of medical nature. The biblical tradition is inserted on two points. The first is the odd dialogue of Lamech, Noah’s future father with his wife Batenosh about the origin of the child she was expecting (1Q20 2.1-18). Batenosh recalls as a proof of her conception her sexual pleasure (‘dynh) felt during a past intercourse with her husband. The second narrative addition in the work is the information about the pestilential spirit (rwÌ’) which caused impotence in Pharaoh’s court, following Sarah’s taking away from Abraham and bringing her into the court of Pharaoh (1Q20 20.12-32). The spirit made unable Pharaoh to have sexual relations with Sarah. The additions in Genesis Apocryphon witness not only an interest of the author in medical lore but also to his good familiarity with various branches of contemporary medicine and healing methods. The words of Batenosh’s argumentation seems to reflect medical ideas phrased in Greek medical tradition, and perhaps an awareness of the author with some written tradition. The idea of the demonic origin of a dysfunction of the human body, and its healing method—exorcism through the laying on of hands—is based on the ancient Near Eastern medical concept of magical healing.
Kratz, Reinhard G., "Der Penal Code und das Verhältnis von Serekh ha-Yachad (S)und Damaskusschrift (D) ," RdQ 25 (2011), 199-227  
AbstractThis article provides a detailed comparison of the two versions of the Penal Code in Serekh ha-Yachad (S) and the Damascus Document (D) and argues for a literary dependency with the prority of S. The argument includes a discussion of the different methodological approaches and the interrelation between historical, sociological, traditio-historical and literary- or redactioncritical aspects. Furthermore, the relationship between S and D is compared to the biblical analogy of the rerwriting of the Covenant Code in Deuteronmy.
Bar-Asher Siegal, Elitzur A., "Who Separated From Whom and Why? A Philological Study of 4QMMT ," RdQ 25 (2011), 229-256  
AbstractThe incomplete phrase ] פרשנו מרוב הע [ from 4QMMT is often read as פרשנו מרוב העם . Translated as “we have separated ourselves from the multitude/ majority of the people,” this line stands at the heart of many discussions concerning the composition of 4QMMT and is allegedly the Qumran community’s self-perception of their relationship with the other Jewish fractions, specifically referring to their schism with the rest of the nation. Based on a philological study of the components of this line I propose the following alternative reading: פרשנו מרוב הע[מים [. I argue that considering the intertextual relationships between 4QMMT with the relevant passages from Deuteronomy and Ezra, and examining the uses of the root פרש in the relevant contexts in the Targumin and in rabbinic texts that this alternative reading should be the default one, or at least as plausible as the common one. Consequently, I examine how this reading should influence our understanding of the nature of 4QMMT.
Gillihan, Yonder Moynihan, "The גר Who Wasn’t There: Fictional Aliens in the Damascus Rule ," RdQ 25 (2011), 257-305  
AbstractThe several sectarian texts from among the DSS that contain references to גרים pose significant problems for the historian. How should we translate the term—“permanent resident alien,” as in Scripture, or “Gentile proselyte,” as in rabbinic literature? Why do some texts, such as the Damascus Rule and 4QLots, treat the גר positively, while others, such as 4QFlorilegium, are entirely hostile to them? In view of the sect’s general rejection of outsiders, especially Gentiles, in texts such as the War Rule and 4QMMT, how can the positive references to גרים be explained? Widely varying solutions have been proposed, all of which assume that the term גר designates a real social group within the sect. This essay tentatively proposes an alternative thesis: while גר seems to designate Gentile converts in sectarian texts, the category is a legal fiction created on the basis of Scripture—it seems highly unlikely that Gentiles ever joined the sect. Positive portraits of גרים in sectarian texts come from interest in crafting halakah for the pre-eschatological age that reflects scriptural law as faithfully as possible. Since throughout Scripture the גר is portrayed as participating in Israelite assemblies, cultic worship, and juridical activity, and since numerous laws protect them from abuse and guarantee their access to material support when in need, the laws of D and other texts provide for similar inclusion. The Covenanters also thought of the גר ’s inclusion as temporary: eschatologically oriented texts show anticipation that the land, people, and cult of Israel would be purged entirely of Gentiles, including “good” גרים . This purge of Gentiles would at last fulfill God’s command to Moses, to rid the land of idolatrous peoples. My proposal describes a consistent, if complex, attitude toward גרים in all sectarian texts that treat them. It also highlights the complexity of the Covenanters’ halakah: some laws were intended to be followed in the present but not in restored Israel; others could not be followed at all in the present but would be at the restoration; still others could be followed partially now, but only fully with restoration. A few laws could neither be followed in the present nor in restored Israel, but had to be included in sectarian halakah due to the recurrence of their themes throughout Scripture. In this last category are laws that treat גרים positively.

Gault, Brian P. , "The Fragments of Canticles from Qumran: Implications and Limitations for Interpretation ," RdQ 24 (2010), 351-371
AbstractThis article reviews the textual evidence for Canticles at Qumran, specifically examining the two “abbreviated” manuscripts (4QCanta,b) which omit segments of the canonical text. While these omissions are clearly evident, the reason for such abbreviation is anything but clear. Various motivations have been suggested to explain this phenomenon, yet many of these theories conflict with evidence in the Song or the non-biblical scrolls. While these manuscripts likely served a purpose other than transmitting Scripture, the present lack of internal and external evidence prevents further conclusions regarding the function of these fragments. Thus, scholars should avoid using 4QCanta,b as support for speculation on the use of similar fragments or the interpretation of Canticles at Qumran. Numerous questions are put forward in an attempt to advance research on the use of these fragments.
Drawnel, Henryk, "Between Akkadian tupšarr ū tu and Aramaic rps : Some Notes on the Social Context of the Early Enochic Literature  ," RdQ 24 (2010), 373-403
AbstractDuring the Persian and Hellenistic periods in Babylonia the cuneiform culture moved into the temple precincts to stay there until the extinction of cuneiform writing. The priestly groups of asipu, or incantation priests, and kalû, or lamentation priests, became main bearers of cuneiform writing and culture, astronomy, astrology and mathematics included. The influence of Late Babylonian culture on Jewish tradition is palpable in the Enochic texts and in the Visions of Levi (= VLev, the so-called Aramaic Levi Document) in the following texts: Aramaic versions of the lexical lists (VLev 32a–36), lunar visibility periods (4Q208 and 4Q209), general characterization of Babylonian magic and divination (1 En. 8:3; 4Q201 frg. 1 iv; 4Q202 frg. 1 iii). The list of sciences taught by the Watchers in 1 En. 8:3 closely corresponds to what we know today about the profession of the Babylonian asipu. Such an influence together with the critical attitude towards the asipu disguised as Watchers is most probably due to the Jewish appropriation of the Aramaic version of Babylonian scholarship; it is not certain how the appropriation occurred, although the intermediary of the Aramaic scribes, sepiru, might be assumed. There are no historical accounts to prove that the Jewish scribes in Babylonia were trained in the highly sophisticated and profoundly specialized areas of cuneiform scholarly literature.
Kottsieper, Ingo, "אות und ערב . Ein Beitrag zum hebräischen Lexikon und zum Verhältnis von CD zu 1QS  ," RdQ 24 (2010), 405-419
AbstractDie Bedeutung der hebräischen Verbalwurzel אות , die neben biblischen und rabbinischen Belegen auch in CD XX 7 und 4Q266 frag. 11,15 begegnet, ist umstritten. Da in 1QS VII 24 und VIII 34 in vergleichbaren Aussagen sich stattdessen das Hitpa{el von ערב findet, gehen einige Forscher davon aus, dass beide Ausdrücke an diesen Stellen letztlich synonym seien. Schließlich wurde kürzlich darauf verwiesen, dass in einigen Targumtexten אות mit ערב wiedergegeben wird, worin man den exegetischen Hintergrund der angenommenen Synonomie sehen könnte. Eine genaue Durchsicht der biblischen und rabbinischen Belege ergibt jedoch, dass אות Handlungen bezeichnet, die erwünscht oder nutz- bzw. interessenorientiert sind. Diese Bedeutung liegt offenkundig auch in den CD-Belegen vor. Eine Analyse der Aussagen von CD und 1QS zeigt, dass der Wechsel in der Terminologie sich einem Wechsel der Aussageintention und nicht einem synonymen Gebrauch beider Wörter verdankt. Und eine Analyse der Targumtexte ergibt, dass die Wiedergabe mit ערב dort das Ergebnis einer späteren Entwicklung der palästinischen Targumtradition ist und zudem ערב eine völlig andere Konnotation aufweist. The meaning of Hebrew אות – known not only from the Bible and rabbinic texts but also found in CD XX 7 and 4Q266 frag. 11,15 – is debatted. Since in comparable contexts, 1QS VII 24 and VIII 34 has ערב hitpa{el instead of אות , some assume both to be synonymous. Finally, it was pointed out that some Targums translate אות using ערב which could be taken as the exegetical background of the alleged synonymity. But an analysis of the biblical and rabbinical texts reveals that אות denotes a desirable acting or an acting lead by benefit or interest – a meaning also to be found in CD. On the other hand, the terminological change between CD and 1QS is obviously based on a change of intention and not on a synonymity of both words. Finally, an analysis of the targumic texts reveals, that the use of ערב there is the result of a later development and that ערב is used in a completely different meaning.

AbstractThe archeological record from kh. Qumran is examined without regard to the scrolls in order to understand the ‘ideology' of the inhabitants and whether they can be defined as a sect. The enormous quantity of tableware indicates ritualization of meals to the exclusion of others (implying strong social boundaries), a practice that is common among elite groups. Resistance is manifested in the animal bone deposits which attest to meat consumption as a sacred ritual. Resistance is also expressed by the distinctive and identical mode of burial. Social hierarchy and ritualization are indicated by ritual baths with multiple partitions. Several rings may also indicate the presence of women. In conclusion, the rituals and resistance are consistent with sectarian ideology. The connection between the inhabitants of kh. Qumran and the YaÌad sect is probable, although not necessarily direct.
Kugel, James L. , "On the Interpolations in the Book of Jubilees ," RdQ 24 (2009), 215-272
AbstractA number of recent studies have suggested that the Book of Jubilees may be the product of more than one author: contradictions within Jubilees raise the possibility that this book, like other works of the Second Temple period, may have undergone revision in the course of its transmission. Building on these earlier studies, the present article seeks to identify the source of those contradictions. It distinguishes 29 passages in Jubilees, all of which are characterized by certain stereotypical phrases and other common characteristics. They are the work of an interpolator who sought to incorporate his own ideas and practices into the book. An absolute determinist, he believed that Israel’s history and all the laws of the Torah had been written long ago in the “Heavenly Tablets.” For this reason he sought to claim, wherever possible, that this or that law found later in the Pentateuch had actually been inaugurated by Noah, Abraham, Jacob, or other early figures. He championed a calendar which required no human sightings of the new moon – its succession of 30-day months, with four additional, extramensual days, had been predetermined for eternity. Similarly, he turned the Feast of Weeks into the Feast of Oaths, thereby eliminating any need for humans to count off seven weeks as prescribed in the Pentateuch. All these changes bear the same stamp and are further distinguished by their unique terminology. In inserting these 29 passages, the interpolator frequently misunderstood or deliberately distorted what the original author of Jubilees had said – thus creating contradictions and inconsistencies in the book as we know it. If these 29 passages are excised, one obtains an altogether smoothly flowing text, and the true nature of the original book of Jubilees may be seen clearly. Its author had a rather different ideology and a very different purpose in writing.

AbstractComparison of 4Q521 2 ii 1-15 with the second benediction of the Tefilla shows that 4Q521 has roots in the liturgy of the Palestinian synagogue in the late 2nd century BC, and not at Qumran. The Tefilla (at least in part) and the Psalms of Solomon come from the Ìasîdîm, and it is likely that 4Q521 was also written among the Ìasîdîm. Particularly characteristic of the Ìasîdîm as revealed in these texts were belief in the resurrection of the dead and a fervent hope for a Davidic messiah. It is likely that משיחו in 4Q521 2 ii 1 is a reference to an exalted Davidic messiah. 4Q521 is important evidence for the development of royal messianism in Palestinian Judaism, and it may help explain the development of the idea of a miracle-working messiah as we find it in the Jesus tradition.
Bekkum, Wout Jacques van. , "Qumran Hymnology and Piyyut : Contrast and Comparison ," RdQ 23 (2008), 341-356  
AbstractPoetical compositions found in manuscripts and scrolls from Qumran may have much in common with Hebrew liturgical poetry (Piyyu†) from the first to the seventh centuries CE, the hymnology of the late antique and early medieval synagogue. In this contribution I should like to present a few observations pertaining to both Qumran poetry and the Piyyu† of the so-called preclassical and classical period (third-seventh centuries), firstly, on their relationship to biblical chant, specifically the Book of Psalms; secondly on their liturgical purposes and their position as official or unofficial parts of Jewish hymnography; and thirdly, on theological and aesthetic appreciation of these types of Jewish poetry by religious authority.
Birenboim, Hannan, "‘The Place Which the Lord Shall Choose,’ the ‘Temple City’ and the ‘Camp’ in 11QT a ," RdQ 23 (2008), 357-369  
AbstractAll religious groups of Jewish society in the Second Temple period were faced with the need to resolve a basic contradiction. The model of sanctity in the book of Leviticus distinguishes two levels of sanctity: (a) the area of the Tabernacle and (b) that of the tribes around it. The book of Deuteronomy, however, recognizes one single focus of sanctity — “the place which the Lord shall choose” — which is not linked to the model of the desert encampment. There are various attempts in the literature of the Second Temple period to resolve this contradiction. To my mind, the Temple Scrolla expresses the view that the “chosen place” is Jerusalem, which was chosen as a permanent substitute for the Temple and the Temple court, implying that the future temple would occupy the entire area of the city: Jerusalem is a “holy encampment” and a “temple city.”

AbstractThe manuscript 5Q16, hitherto not identified, overlaps with 4Q525 15, and should be regarded as a second copy of the composition which has been entitled Beatitudes. The article gives a composite text of the poem of 4Q525 15 and 5Q16 1+2, 5, which describes the house of Lady Folly, and discusses its structure and content. The correspondences between 4Q525 and 4Q184 are discussed in some detail, and it is argued that Qimron’s suggestion that these are copies of one and the same composition, Words of Solomon, is plausible.

AbstractBasing itself on an earlier translation-technical examination of the two extant textual witnesses of Ps 151,∞∞∞(1) the present study aimed at further investigating the interrelation of Ps 151 LXX and Ps 151A-B. In this respect, it has been examined whether a pattern of textual variants could be isolated in Ps 151A, in order to substantiate the claim that Ps 151 LXX and Ps 151A-B represent ‘variant literary editions’. It has been observed that three units of ‘pluses’ immediately stand out in Ps 151A and that, when taken together, they remarkably exhibit a midrash to 1 Sam 16,7. While Ps 151 LXX is only a ‘paraphrase’ of the events recounted in 1 Sam 16-17 in autobiographical style, a creative scribe has enriched its Vorlage with a midrash in Ps 151A, emphasising that God does not judge man according to his outward appearance, but according to his inner dedication, as it is exemplified in the preference given to David over his brothers. Most likely, both editions of Ps 151 are not directly connected to each other, but ultimately depend on a common ancestor, which has been here termed ‘edition n’, indicating that this edition was not necessarily the first edition of this psalm. As both editions were derived independently from this now lost ‘edition n’, they have been designated as ‘edition (n+1)a’ and ‘edition (n+1)b’.
Werrett, Ian C. , "A Scroll in One Hand and a Mattock in the Other: Latrines, Essenes, and Khirbet Qumran ," RdQ 23 (2008), 475-489  
AbstractIn the fall of 2006, dozens of humorously titled articles, such as “Biblical Latrine: Ancient Parasites Show That Cleanliness May Have Been Next To Sickliness” and “How Toilet Habits Killed off Dead Sea Scrolls Sect,” appeared in The New York Times, The Independent, MSNBC and a variety of other mainstream publications around the world. These non-academic articles detailed the discovery of a purportedly ancient latrine to the northwest of Qumran, which, according to a recent article in Revue de Qumran by Joe Zias, James Tabor, and Stephanie Harter-Lailheugue proves that the individuals who lived at the site of Qumran during the Second Temple period were none other than the Jewish sect known as the Essenes. Based upon certain bioarchaeological evidence from the Qumran plateau, the witness of Josephus, who describes the defecation habits of the Essenes (Bellum 2.147-49), and a passage from the Temple Scroll, which calls for latrines to be built 3,000 cubits to the northwest of the “city of the Temple” (11Q19 46.13-16; cf. Deut 23:12-14), Zias et al claim that the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls understood their community to be a physical replacement for the Temple (cf. 4Q174 1 2 i 6; 1QS 9.4-6) and, as such, they attempted to protect the “city of the Temple” (i.e., Qumran) from the impurity of excrement by building communal latrines to the northwest of their habitation. In contrast to Zias et al’s approach, which is founded upon a systematic reading of the Greek and Qumran sources, the following paper will attempt to establish the Dead Sea Scroll's position on the subject of excrement by focusing on the archaeological and literary evidence from Qumran (1QM 7.6b-7; 4Q265 6 2; 4Q472a 2-4; and 11Q19 46.13-16). In the end, it will be argued that the evidence at our disposal is inconsistent and that it cannot be used to recreate a cohesive and consistent approach on the subject of defecation at Qumran.
