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! 🙂

Dead Sea Scrolls – Complete Hosea Text

September 28th, 2011

A little treat before the Feast of Trumpets (Also known as Taruw’ah): Complete transcriptions of all the manuscripts found among the Dead Sea Scrolls containing text from the book of Hosea.

This also means that all the manuscripts containing text from the Twelve Minor Prophets have been completely transcribed and uploaded onto the website, and so I’ve compiled them all into their respective manuscripts and names 🙂

Furthermore, due to the large collection of free PDF’s for download on the website, I’ve also created a new page that just contains links to all the available downloads on TWTY. Check it out here. It’s also available via the link on the sidebar to the right.

This will the last update with Dead Sea Scroll transcriptions for a while. Got a few other things on my to-do list that need doing 🙂

4Q78c (4QXIIc) Hosea Text | 4Q79d (4QXIId) Hosea Text | 4Q82g (4QXIIg) Hosea Text

Complete Manuscript Transcripts
4Q76a (4QXIIa) Minor Prophets – Full Text | 4Q77b (4QXIIb) Minor Prophets – Full Text | 4Q78c (4QXIIc) Minor Prophets – Full Text | 4Q79d (4QXIId) Minor Prophets – Full Text | 4Q80e (4QXIIe) Minor Prophets – Full Text | 4Q81f (4QXIIf) Minor Prophets – Full Text | 4Q82g (4QXIIg) Minor Prophets – Full Text | Wadi Murabba’at (MurXII) Minor Prophets – Full Text | Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets (8HevXIIgr) Scroll – Full Text

Dead Sea Scrolls – Complete Amos & Malachi Texts

September 20th, 2011

Dead Sea Scrolls update time again. The short book of Malachi (3 Chapters) is contained in two Dead Sea Scrolls Manuscripts – 4Q76a (4QXIIa) and 4Q78c (4QXIIc), although neither of these two manuscripts contain any text from Chapter 1 (4Q78c (4QXIIc) actually only has chapter 3 verses 6 & 7 extant, and then in fragmentary form!).

Amos however, containing 9 chapters, is a bit more complete among the Dead Sea Scrolls being contained in four manuscripts: 4Q78c (4QXIIc), 4Q82g (4QXIIg), 5Q4Amos (5QAmos) and Wadi Murabba’at (MurXII). These four manuscripts contain text from all of the 9 chapters, although not every word is extant. Nevertheless, Amos does come down to us from these 2000+ year old scrolls in a near-complete form 🙂

4Q76a/4QXIIa Malachi | 4Q78c/4QXIIc Malachi

4Q78c/4QXIIc Amos | 4Q82g/4QXIIg Amos | 5Q4Amos/5QAmos Amos | Wadi Murabba’at/MurXII Amos

Dead Sea Scrolls – Complete Obadiah & Joel Text

More Dead Sea Scrolls Transcriptions time. Obadiah is contained in the Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts named 4Q82g (4QXIIg) and Wadi Murabba’at (MurXII), and Joel is contained in the Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts named 4Q78c (4QXIIc); 4Q82g (4QXIIg); and Wadi Murabba’at (MurXII).

Dead Sea Scrolls – Complete Haggai Text

September 1st, 2011

The short book of Haggai appears in three of the Dead Sea Scrolls Manuscripts – Wadi Murabba’at Minor Prophets (MurXII); 4Q77b (4QXIIb); and 4Q80e (4QXIIe). So as usual, I have transcribed and uploaded all three of them onto the website 🙂

(For people that haven’t realised, there are certain “key codes” for the Dead Sea Scroll’s Manuscripts. 4Q stands for “Fourth Qumran Cave” (so therefore “2Q” would stand for “Second Qumran Cave” and so on and so forth), and manuscripts with XII in their title stand for “Twelve” and so refer to “The Twelve Minor Prophets”).

Wadi Murabba’at/MurXII | 4Q77b/4QXIIb | 4Q80e/4QXIIe

Dead Sea Scrolls – Complete Zechariah Text

August 30th, 2011

I’ve just finished uploading transcriptions of the 5 manuscripts that contain text from the book of Zechariah among the Dead Sea Scrolls: Wadi Murabba’at; 4Q76a (4QXIIa); 4Q80e(4QXIIe); 4Q82g (4QXIIg); and Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets Scroll (8HevXIIgr).

As it happens, this therefore means that I’ve transcribed the whole of the Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets Scroll (8HevXIIgr), and so I have combined all of the transcriptions into one volume of the Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets Scroll (8HevXIIgr) in PDF form. Previous to the free transcription now available on TWTY, peoples only access to such a complete transcription would be if they bought the $175+ book Discoveries in the Judaean Desert: Volume VIII. The Greek Minor Prophets Scroll from Nahal Hever (8HevXIIgr), which is, as far as I’m concerned, far too expensive of a book to get.

Well, now people have it for free 🙂

Dead Sea Scrolls – Jonah Text

August 12th, 2011

Transcriptions of all the Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts regarding the Book of Jonah should now be up on the website.

There are five manuscripts in total: Wadi Murabba’at (MurXII), Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets (8HevXIIgr), 4Q76a (4QXIIa), 4Q81f (4QXIIf), and 4Q82g (4QXIIg). Pretty much nearly every single word of the Book of Jonah is extant. Well, at least every verse is accounted for 🙂

Wadi Murabba’at/MurXII | Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets/8HevXIIgr | 4Q76a/4QXIIa | 4Q81f/4QXIIf | 4Q82g/4QXIIg

Dead Sea Scrolls – Zephaniah Text

August 8th, 2011

I have now uploaded PDF’s of the text of Zephaniah as found in the Dead Sea Scrolls manuscripts: Wadi Murabba’at; Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets 8HevXIIgr; 4Q77b/4QXIIb; 4Q78c/4QXIIc; and 4Q82g/4QXIIg. That’s now 4 of the 12 Minor Prophets completed, all with comparisons against the accepted text of the Greek Septuagint and Masoretic Hebrew 🙂

Wadi Murabba’at | Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets 8HevXIIgr | 4Q77b/4QXIIb | 4Q78c/4QXIIc | 4Q82g/4QXIIg

Edit: For the above, please refer to the Downloads Page.

(As a little funny aside, I was reading along in The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible as I was doing Zephaniah, and in their introduction to Zephaniah, the scholars who did the translation start off with “The four short chapters of Zephaniah are well attested in the scrolls…” The funny thing is, there’s actually only three chapters in Zephaniah, not four 🙂 )

Dead Sea Scrolls – Habakkuk Texts

August 3rd, 2011

All of the Dead Sea Scrolls Scriptural manuscripts regarding the text of the book of Habakkuk should now be online on the Research Page in PDF form.

There is an extensive Pesher text on the Book of Habakkuk (probably the largest Pesher text on one of the Minor prophets found at Qumran) which I may put online in the future, although there is a translation of the actual text in the Pesher to be found in Geza Vermes The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls In English for people to read 🙂

Anyway, here are the direct links:

Wadi Murabba’at Habakkuk | 4Q82g Habakkuk | Nahal Hever Greek Minor Prophets 8HevXIIgr Habakkuk
