Chapter Summary

The Temple Scroll contains a series of prescriptions regarding the distribution and allocation of priestly and Levitical emoluments. This passage is part of the Deuteronomic Paraphrase, a section of the scroll which reworks the legal material in Deuteronomy and which was composed by the author/redactor of the Temple Scroll to round out the new Torah that he had created. The priestly gifts are specified in lines 1-5, and those of the Levites in lines 6-10. The lacuna at the top of the column may also have contained the beginning of this section. This chapter deals with the various biblical laws and the manner in which they have been interpreted and adapted in the scroll. Numbers 18:19 refers to the apportionment to the priests of "all the holy offerings which the children of Israel will offer to the Lord".
