Chapter Summary

It is readily apparent to anyone who bothers to compare the Septuagint version of the book of Joshua with the preserved Hebrew text that the two do not coincide. This chapter approaches the problem of Hebrew Vorlage from another angle. There is now available the clear evidence of the Dead Sea Scroll fragment of the book of Samuel, published a decade and a half ago. Precisely this situation is to be seen in the history of the transmission of the Hebrew text of Joshua, namely, that the Hebrew Vorlage of the LXX and the preserved Hebrew text represent two stages in the growth of the Hebrew text of Joshua; but the differences between these two texts are such that a third text must be assumed corresponding approximately to that preserved in the Dead Sea Scroll fragment of Samuel.
