Publication of the first fascicle (Megillot) of a new critical edition of the Hebrew Bible, Biblia Hebraica Quinta, invites comment on the use of Targum by its editors. This short survey outlines the contents of BHQ, noting provision of introductions to the ancient versions of each biblical book; along with commentaries on the critical apparatus. Unlike earlier critical editions, BHQ makes extensive use of Targumim of the Megillot: several examples are set out and discussed. Despite some minor weaknesses in the presentation of Targumic material, BHQ represents a major change of attitude towards Targum, which specialists will welcome.
