    4Q481b- 4Q481e

    Hello, Any reason why in the English translation module there are no attempts at translating the fairly clear text in the Hebrew? The plates show at least a few clear word groups and the transposed text in the Qumran Non- Biblical module is tagged. Just curious
  2. Help needed with a DSS reference: I am trying to decode this reference, 4Q414 f2ii_4:5, from the Accordance DSS library so that I can put it in SBL 2nd format. The QUMRAN ReadMe explains the following for understanding the reference system used, but it doesn't actually deal with the specific case above: "Current referencing schemes have been modified slightly to accommodate Accordance. Scrolls published by column are recorded in a column:line format. Thus “1QS 4:3” (or “1QS 4.3”) references the manuscript known as 1QS column 4, line 3. The more common fragmentary portions follow the pattern of fragment column: line. Thus “4Q427 f7ii:14” refers to manuscript 4Q427, fragment (f) 7, column 2, and line 14. Only the fragment number will show variation from this pattern as the characters + and _ are incorporated to show combinations of individual fragments. For example, “4Q491 f1_3:17” refers to an ensemble of fragments 1, 2, and 3." Here's what I'm sure of regarding this reference, 4Q414 f2ii_4:5: - 4Q414 is cave 4 at Qumran and 414 is the scroll number. - "f2" is "fragment 2" and "ii" is column 2. - 5 is line 5 What I'm unsure of is what to do with _4 The _ is explained in the ReadMe as indicating a collection of fragments together, but the example uses Arabic numbers (1_3) in the example. In the reference I'm looking at it goes from ii_4. I'm taking this to mean that 4Q414 is reconstructed from a collection of fragments that includes fragment 2 column 2, fragment 3, and fragment 4. OR it could mean fragment 2 column 2, fragment 3 column 2, and fragment 4 column 2. Thank you in advance for your help!
  3. I read from it a little bit 2½ Years ago and liked it very much at the time. Not sure what other equivalent books there would be out there (that are not under Accordance but could as likely or even more likely get produced) - others can help suggest, please? A replacement book/series would be good. I just am not familiar with what that would be that wouldn't be older, or is forthcoming.

    DSSB Variants searching difficulty

    Hi Everyone, This is probably a stupid question. I am writing a paper on the shape of the text of Amos as attested at Qumran, and I'm having difficulty with the DSSB Variants module. I can search for variants by mss number with no problem, but for some reason, the module will not let me search via scripture reference, even when I know that such a reference and variant is listed in the module. (See an example in the attached screenshot). I feel like I am just overlooking something rather elementary. But if anyone has any insight, I would appreciate it. Thanks! David
  5. What's the Accordance Abbreviation for 1QS that would work with a user-bible input? Does this matter now that you can do custom book names? My best guess is this: 1QS 1:1 line 1 text goes here 1QS 1:2 line 2 text goes here Is there a complete list of Accordance-compatible book names somewhere? I don't have any Qumran/DSS modules yet so wanted to future-proof a User-Bible for when I do.
  6. Here's some input from a graduate student who uses Accordance daily in his studies. I'm currently studying for an MA in Ancient Judaism and Christian Origins (Nyack College in New York, NY). My Biblical Hebrew skills are at in intermediate level. So I've found it tremendously useful that I can have several important reference grammars at my fingertips and searchable while I'm doing my daily readings and translations (It's especially useful not to have to carry around several thick tomes when I'm traveling in and out of the city for classes!). But here are a few more books geared towards quick reference that I would love to see available—I think they would fit perfectly with the searching capabilities of accordance. 1. Williams Hebrew Syntax: Third Edition by John C. Beckman 2. A Guide to Biblical Hebrew Syntax by Bill Arnold and John Choi I have also started a class on the Dead Sea Scrolls and Qumranic Hebrew this semester and would find equally useful: 1. Qumran Hebrew: An Overview of Orthography, Phonology, and Morphology by Eric Reymond 2. Dictionary of the Targumim, Talmud Bavli, Talmud Yerushalmi and Midrasnhic Literature by Marcus Jastrow (in fact, I'm a bit surprised this one is not already on here). I hope my suggestion are helpful! I would love to see these works available!
  7. When I click DSS references in the DCH, it notifies me that I need the QUMRAN module (Qumran Non-Biblical Manuscripts (Hebrew, tagged)). My question is whether the hyperlinks will also work if I get the QUMENG (Qumran Non-Biblical Manuscripts: A New English Translation) without getting the QUMRAN module. (and if so, how well since I read about some DSS references in DCH that had to be linked manually to the QUMRAN module and I assume that the issue would also happen with QUMENG for the same reasons) Thanks,

    DSS Index

    So I tried to link the DSS index to DSSB-C (the biblical scrolls in canonical order) with no response. It only seemed to scroll with the DSSB-M (biblical scrolls in manuscript order). Any reason for that?
