Chapter Summary

The data concerning corruptions of letters in ch. iv is used to estimate the kind of script in which the Vorlage was written, and various conclusions drawn earlier with regard to Par's Heb text is gathered up. Kittel's difficulty is a real one and casts doubt on the originality of the phrase. It may be suggested that it represents two misplaced, separate Heb glosses. The repetition of the prepositional phrase suggests that the variant is Heb in origin. The addition in Par is apparently an explanatory gloss suggesting that each nail weighed 21b. But more may still be said about these giant nails. The Vorlage apparently contained some readings alternative to those found in MT but yielding the same sense. It may be tentativeIy concluded that Par's Vorlage was written in a semi-cursive script in which certain letters had a more formal character.
