Chapter Summary

4Q372 is a manuscript of a work that is apparently also represented in three other manuscripts: 2Q22, 4Q371, and 4Q373. A brief discussion of the manuscript evidence for the work as a whole and a preliminary edition of 4Q372 1 was given by Eileen SCHULLER at the Groningen Congress on the Dead Sea Scrolls, and at the Madrid Conference she also provided preliminary editions of 4Q371 3, 4Q372 2, and 4Q373. SCHULLER has convincingly argued that this text is not an exegetical reflection on Genesis, but is concerned with Joseph as representative of the northern tribes. The fragments of 4Q390 form part of a historical review that is cast in the form of a vaticinium ex eventu. Some phrases from the manuscript were given by MILIK in 1976 in The Books of Enoch, and the manuscript was briefly mentioned by Devorah DIMANT in her two articles on 4QSecond Ezekiel.
