Chapter Summary

This is the conclusory chapter of this book, which offers a text-critical study of the 'Plagues Narrative' of Exod. 7:14-11:10. The collation of the extant textual material and the careful registration of textual differences must serve as the point of departure for any well-founded textual study. Once the variants have been registered and described, one must then subject the different readings to a process of evaluation. The text-critical evaluation is based on conventional internal criteria, whereby the accent is placed in the first instance on the appropriateness of a reading in its literary context-in both the immediate and wider sense-and on the specific features and demands of each individual variant. Finally, it has become apparent that the text-critical analysis of Exod. 7:14-11:10 has produced results that are of essential importance for the literary study of the 'Plagues Narrative'.

Keywords: Plagues Narrative; text-critical evaluation; textual material; textual variants
