Chapter Summary

In the course of this investigation it has been necessary to deal with a series of readings that fall within the scope of this study (deviations of Psalter of the Peshitta (P-Ps) in relation to Masoretic texts (MT)) but for which no convincing explanation has been found. In the desire to be exhaustive, the author presents these readings in this appendix, in the hope that future investigations may be able to shed light on them. In some cases, the presentation of these lectiones is accompanied by notes on the state of research on them, by some suggestions, or by solutions proposed by other authors who, in my judgment, have proved unsatisfactory. The reading of MT is supported by Qumran MS 4QPsb, Vulgate (Vg) Hb and probably by Aquila and the sixth Greek version of Origen's Hexapla.

Keywords: Masoretic texts (MT); Psalter of the Peshitta (P-Ps); Qumran MS 4QPsb; Vulgate (Vg)
