Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the one such tiny fragment, originally published by Allegro as frag. 5 of the Cave 4 Pesher Psalms B. According to Allegro's reading, one further connection could be posited between 4Q173a and 4Q174 in the form of a shared use of the root. As 4Q174 is now widely recognised to be part of a collection of eschatological commentaries comprising at least also 4Q177 and possibly more manuscripts, an association of 4Q173a to one member of this group of manuscripts necessarily involves the rest of the related manuscripts, notably 4Q177. And 4Q177 does in fact share two features of the vocabulary of 4Q173a namely the root and the name of Jacob.

Keywords: 4Q173a; eschatological Midrash; Pesher Psalms
