Chapter Summary

This chapter proposes a new interpretation of the Damascus Document IV 10-12. These lines consist mainly of allusions to biblical passages, but their meaning within the context of the Damascus Document is not easy to establish. In the part of the Damascus Document commonly designated as the "Admonition", the author seeks to establish the historical position of the community to which he belongs, in particular as compared to the rest of the people of Israel. The author of the Damascus Document may have assumed that his readers were familiar with the lines he quoted and also with a particular interpretation of those lines, on account of which they would have made sense in the context of the Damascus Document. The chapter argues that Damascus Document (CD) IV 10-12 is the introduction to a new textual unit.

Keywords: biblical passages; Damascus Document IV 10-12
