Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about a hitherto unidentified small Dead Sea Scrolls fragment preserving part of Num 23:5-7[8]. In 1962 Maurice Baillet published the fragments from Qumran Cave 2, including unidentified fragments which he grouped together on the basis of similarity of skin or script. Thus, 2Q29 consists of four small fragments, presently referred to as "Unclassified frags." Two Cave 2 fragments preserving part of Numbers can be assigned to the same manuscript (2QNumb), to wit the hitherto unidentified fragment 2Q29 1 (Num 23:5-7[8]) and 2Q7 (Num 33:47-53). An assignment of 2Q9 and 2Q29 3 to the same manuscript is possible, if one allows for columns of somewhat varying width in the same scroll.
