Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the large Hodayot manuscript from Cave 1 namely, 1QHa. A major focus of research on 1QHa from the 1960s until today has been categorizing the two major types of material in this collection. The first is known as the Hymns of the Teacher. The second group, now thought to consist of two sub-groups, is known as the Hymns of the Community. In the chapter the author isolate another central theme in the 1QHa collection, occurring in both Teacher and Community Hymns. The chapter draws together the evidence set forth in this study for the liturgical function of the 1QHodayota collection of hymns. The latter's liturgical contextualization of the Self-Glorification Hymn is striking and bespeaks the editor's organizational principles and purpose. In a similar vein, the distribution of Teacher Hymns and Community Hymns in 1QHa should now be counted as additional evidence of this collection's liturgical function.
