Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the ketib-qere (KQ) system of Masoretic type texts of Isaiah in light of 1QIsaa and other Qumran witnesses of Isaiah. Manuscripts of the Masoretic period signified the qere readings with a range of notations, also located in the margins. The Catalog of Ketib-Qere Readings in Isaiah records fifty-eight KQ readings from Isaiah. The Qumran Isaiah scrolls provide instances of interlinear insertions, corrections, and erasures. The chapter examines four groupings or categories of variants that are derived from comparisons between 1QIsaa and the KQ of Masoretic- type texts of Isaiah. Text critics differentiate between "real" or material variants and analogical readings, those that develop through the copyists' work of transmitting the text. The chapter makes a comparison of 1QIsaa with the ketib and qere of Masoretic-type texts.

Keywords: 1Qisaa; ketib-qere (KQ); Masoretic type texts; Qumran Isaiah scrolls
