Chapter Summary

This chapter studies all the variants of Psalter of the Peshitta (P-Ps) with relation to Masoretic texts (MT) that did not fit in previous chapters because of their coincidence with Septuagint (LXX) and/or Tg. In doing this, the author have been pursuing two ends: on the one hand, to account for the origin of all the deviations of P-Ps with relation to MT and, on the other, to confront the hypothesis of the influence of LXX and/or Targum (Tg) on the Syriac version. The hypothesis of the influence of Tg on P-Ps must be completely rejected, since no agreements have been found that can support it. In some cases, the two versions share the same interpretation of a Hebrew word or expression, but without it being possible to speak of literary dependence. Finally, the chapter also studies the extra-Masoretic P-Ps-LXX-Tg agreements.

Keywords: Masoretic texts (MT); Psalter of the Peshitta (P-Ps); Septuagint (LXX); Syriac version; Targum (Tg)
