Chapter Summary

Reflecting the methodological framework and working model, this chapter offers-prior to any text-critical evaluation-a detailed registration and description of the textual variants found in the extant material of the 'Plagues Narrative' in Exod. 7:14-11:10. Thereby, it bases itself on an exhaustive synoptic survey of the textual material. However, even though the synoptic collection (and comparison) of the textual material constitutes de facto the very first phase of the text-critical study, it is, due to practical, typographical and editorial reasons. For each variant, the chapter presents a biblical reference followed by a typification of the relationship between the textual witnesses as far as the respective variant is concerned. Thereafter, one can make note of the variant itself whereby, with respect to the so-called smaller textual differences, the nature of the said variant is described in brief. The Hebrew text is presented in its unvocalised form and the Greek text without accents.

Keywords: Plagues narrative; synoptic survey; text-critical evaluation; textual material; textual variants
