Chapter Summary

This chapter examines how the content of a biblical book is divided with different types of divisions. The author chooses the little book of Esther for this purpose because of its small size, focusing on the subjective aspects of these divisions. No ancient fragments of Esther have been found among the texts in the Judean Desert or elsewhere, and as a result the discussion focuses on the medieval manuscripts, some modern editions, and some commentaries.

Keywords:biblical book; Esther; Judean Desert; medieval manuscripts
