Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with a brief description of Hebrew University Isaiah Scroll (1QIsab), which is forthcoming in DJD XXXII, including the new definitive listing of contents by column. It then survey the many instances where 1QIsab disagrees with the Masoretic Text (MT), providing several examples in detail. The chapter finally considers how close this manuscript is to the consonantal text of the medieval MT, and whether some of its non-Masoretic readings may be viewed as textually superior or significant as the text to be translated. Different parts of this manuscript were published in three preliminary editions, most notably by E. L. Sukenik in 1954.

Keywords: DJD XXXII; Hebrew University Isaiah Scroll (1QIsab); Masoretic Text (MT)
