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 🙂
