On this page I will be putting up information regarding the Dead Sea Scrolls, including transcriptions, Textual Critical Editions of the DSS and (hopefully) translations of the text as found among the Dead Sea Scrolls at Qumran, Nahal Hever and Wadi Murabba’at.

For easier access to all the PDF’s on this page, and those contained in other pages on the webiste, please go to the downloads page :)

Transcription Key:

Blue Brackets – The text contained within these brackets is subjective, as it isn’t contained in the text due to the fragmentary nature of some of the scroll.

Green Letters – This is the colour of the text within the blue brackets, so the above applies to this as well.

Red Superscript Numbers – These are the verse numbers, which aren’t actually part of the text, but added for easy searching.

 

Comparison Key:

Blue Brackets – The text contained within these brackets is subjective, as it isn’t contained in the text due to the fragmentary nature of some of the scroll.

Green Letters – This is the colour of the text within the blue brackets, so the above applies to this as well.

Text in Purple stars (*): This is where the Dead Sea Scrolls have different text, but in the same place as the received Hebrew/Greek Texts of today. They will also note when the end of word forms of the Hebrew letters Mem (ם), Nun (ן), Tsade (ץ), Pey (ף), and Kaph (ך) are in their normal forms (כ פ צ נ מ respectfully – this usually happens when the DSS have the full (plene) spelling of Hebrew words, compared to the defective spelling in the Masoretic).

Text in Grey minus signs (-): These are omitted words/letters in the Dead Sea Scrolls compared to the received Hebrew/Greek Texts of today.

Text in Red plus signs (+): These are added words/letters in the Dead Sea Scrolls compared to the received Hebrew/Greek Texts of today.
