Update! Job & Song of Songs

January 27th, 2013

Okay – these are the last batch of the “small” Tanakh book Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions before tackling the much larger books.

Among the Dead Sea Scrolls, there are four manuscripts for the books of Job and Song of Songs – with Song of Songs (a.k.a Canticles) being quite well preserved, but only several words of several verses from 10 of the 42 chapters of Job being preserved for over 2000 years.

The most interesting manuscript is the one named 4Q101 paleoJobc, which, as its name suggests, is written in Paleo Hebrew, not the Phoenician “square” Hebrew script.

As usual, find all Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions on the TWTY Downloads page 🙂

Job
2Q15 Job (2QJob) | 4Q99 Joba (4QJoba) | 4Q100 Jobb (4QJobb) | 4Q101 paleoJobc (4QpaleoJobc)

Song of Songs (Canticles)
4Q106 Canticlesa (4Q Canticlesa) | 4Q107 Canticlesb (4Q Canticlesb) | 4Q108 Canticlesc (4Q Canticlesc) | 6Q6 Canticles (6Q Canticles)

Dead Sea Scrolls Update – Four Complete Books

January 4th, 2013

Yes, it’s Dead Sea Scrolls update time again.

TWTY has got four books completed for you this time: Daniel, Ecclesiastes/Qohelet, Ezra, and Lamentations!

This therefore leaves just one of the “smaller” books left to do (Song of Songs, which also happens to be quite well preserved), before TWTY starts tackling the much, much larger Prophetic books, as well as the “Poetic” books of the Psalms and Job, culminating in the Five books of Moses/the Torah.

I do actually plan on finishing the Dead Sea Scrolls transcriptions this year, so I’d better start cracking on with them, once this is posted! 🙂
