Chapter Summary

The Pericope group collects data on delimitation of units in ancient biblical manuscripts. Over a long period the Hebrew Bible, or better: the Masoretic text (MT) of the Hebrew Bible governed the field of Old Testament Studies. One of the striking differences between the different traditions, which also affect the proposed edition, is the order of the text. The authors choose Jeremiah 27-29 to present as a sample text together with this proposal, but which are numbered differently in J, namely Jeremiah 34-36 because - as is well known - the order of the chapters in J- Jeremiah are ordered differently after Jer. 25:13 than in M, S and B. Regarding the sample edition some choices were made, which might be relevant to know to the readers. The electronic text applied in this edition was kindly made available by the Peshiṭta Institute.
