This article presents a composite edition, with new reconstructions, notes, and translation, of a composition we title "Sabbath Laws" (4Q264a and 4Q421). Three of these Sabbath laws are treated at length in comparison to rabbinic halakah: carrying and playing musical instruments, reading a scroll, and leaving coals burning. Mutually beneficial, this comparison contributes to our understanding, and reconstruction, of the history of halakah.
