Chapter Summary

Two Qumran pesharim are attested for the Book of Hosea: 4Q166 known as 4QpHosa and 4Q167 known as 4QpHosb. The so-called Damascus Document includes four explicit Hosea quotations, all of which are part of the paraenetic parts of the work. Following the reconstruction of Annette Steudel, two manuscripts of the so-called Eschatological Commentary or, as Steudel put it, Midrash on Eschatology have been preserved. Pesher Isaiah C, 4Q163, is usually considered to comprise 61 fragments. This chapter explicits Hosea quotations present in the Qumran manuscripts shows an amazingly coherent pattern on how the book of Hosea was read at Qumran.

Keywords: Hosea; Pesher Isaiah C; Qumran
