Chapter Summary

This chapter puts together several physical and scribal features that have been observed in particular about the Cave 4 Isaiah Pesharim, Pesher Nahum and Pesher Psalms to see where the discussion has reached concerning how the choice of manuscript and the scribal presentation of the texts indicate how the compositions in these manuscripts might have been conceptualised by those responsible for producing or reproducing them and, in some small way, how they might have been used and received. Some reference will also be made to Pesher Habakkuk from Cave 1, since it is the most complete of all the so-called continuous pesharim and can act in some ways as a control over observations made about the more fragmentary Cave 4 examples.

Keywords: cave 4; Isaiah Pesharim; Pesher Habakkuk; Pesher Nahum; Pesher Psalms; scribal features
