Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a comprehensive transcription of the 4QApocryphon of Jeremiah ca, followed by a detailed synopsis, derived from the material and distant joins, in conjunction with the several textual overlaps between this text, and the other textual witnesses to the Apocryphon c, 4Q387, 4Q388a, and 4Q389. 4Q390 was precluded from the sequence largely on the basis of the absence of any material overlaps with the other manuscripts, and in line with the description of its contents by Werman, Eshel and Berner. The fragments from 4Q385a are presented according to their arrangement within their Groups in sequence, and assigned to hypothetical columns within each grouping. It follows a presentation of pertinent fragments from the overlapping texts, with translations, notes and comments. The chapter concludes with a synopsis that attempts to provide a good sense of the whole composition by highlighting some of the major themes and ideas throughout.

Keywords: 4Q388a; 4Q389; 4QApocryphon of Jeremiah ca; textual witnesses
