Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the question: to what extent does the fact that 80% of our documents are composed in Hebrew reflect the linguistic reality of the Qumran community? Or to put it in simpler terms: did they speak Hebrew?-as opposed to Aramaic, for example, or to Greek. It analyses the survey of the various understandings of Qumran Hebrew (QH) by returning to the 1950s, when the first studies of the language were produced, mainly by scholars from the Hebrew University, including Hanoch Yalon, Chaim Rabin, E. Y. Kutscher, Moshe Goshen-Gottstein, and Ze'ev Ben-Hayyim. The chapter discusses the examples from the major documents, such as 1QS, 1QM, 1QH, and 11QT, with a special emphasis on 1QS.

Keywords: 1QS; Greek; Qumran Hebrew (QH)
