Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the cases which go back directly or indirectly to Hebrew variants. An attempt is made to distinguish between assimilation which had already occurred in the Vorlage and that which entered after Par had been translated. It must often be frankly admitted that the period of assimilation cannot be specified from the reading itself. But the context is helpful at times, as Gerleman rightly saw. Frequent harmonization in the context is taken to suggest that a sporadic, and nondescript rendering is in fact coincidental. Assimilation leads to the corollary that it is impossible to conclude that Par's Vorlage necessarily contained a different text. Podechard has shown that Par very often leans on the Greek Genesis. An attempt has been made in the chapter to disentangle the mass of parallel assimilation and to specify the stage at which each instance occurred.
