Chapter Summary

Since the early 1990s the author has devoted much time and energy investigating all the Psalms scrolls from Qumran, with fullest documentation in the book The Dead Sea Psalms Scrolls and the Book of Psalms (1997), in a long article in Vetus Testamentum (1998), and in the first volume of the Princeton Symposium on the Dead Sea Scrolls (2006). This research has yielded or recognized five notable features, or five "surprises", surrounding the Psalms scrolls from Qumran, culminating with the publication of 11QPsb, 11QPsc, 11QPsd, and 11QPse in DJD 23 in 1998. This chapter identifies another copy of the Psalter represented by the Great Psalms Scroll, which the author terms the "11QPsa-Psalter". The discussion brings some focus on a somewhat neglected manuscript, 11QPsb (11Q6), and its unique contribution towards research on the book of Psalms in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
