Chapter Summary

According to assessment by Tov and Crawford, all five 4QRP mss are considered copies of a single composition because they all show the same types of "exegetical" changes vis-à-vis the known text of the Pentateuch. Several objections have been raised against particular aspects of this assessment. This chapter focuses on the assertion that lies at the heart of Tov and Crawford's characterization: that the five manuscripts labeled 4QRP each approach the text of the Pentateuch in the same way. It aims to remedy the situation by presenting the results of a detailed investigation of the compositional techniques evidenced in each of the four manuscripts, 4Q364-367. This investigation provides firmer footing for conclusions regarding the relationships between the five 4QRP mss. The chapter comments on all of the substantial differences visà- vis the MT and other known versions in 4Q364-367, and on most of the more minor differences.
