    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. Accordance is simply the best in regards to working with the Dead Sea Scrolls. Period. That being said, one module that would be astounding would be the two volume Encyclopedia of the Dead Sea Scrolls (Oxford Press). You can only purchase it through third party on Amazon or other book finders. Outstanding piece of DSS scholarship that would be great to have as an Accordance module. Thoughts?
  3. Greetings, I'm trying to import a Qumran text through the "Import Bible Text" feature, and I'm running into a versification problem. I am trying to import a text that corresponds to 1QHa 2:12–28:15, but I receive a verse reference error (see below). I can import a text that runs up to 1QHa 16:42, but there is something about the versification at the transition from 16:42-17:1 that prevents me from importing my entire text of 1QHa. Does anyone know how to address this problem? Error: The entry "1QHa 17:1" is not a valid verse reference. This error occurs after the reference "1QHa 16:42". All lines must begin with a valid verse reference for a single verse on that line. All book names cannot use a space within the name.
  4. I'm looking to find which book in Accordance would I purchase to get to the 1QH Thanksgiving Hymns of the Qumran. The books I purchased don't seem to have all I need. I purchased Qumran Non Biblical English and I also have The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible and the DSS Bible English Notes. Heidi | Michael
  5. Hello, I am trying to find Allusions to a specific text from the Old Testament in Second temple literature. I tried minimizing the range to a specific Book - Jeremiah - and then opening a New pane with the module such as Qumran and then entering an Infer command. But something doesn't work well. How do I do if I just want to find the Allusions to some chapters from the book of Jeremiah and not for all of it? Thank you

    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
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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,
  10. What was in yesterday's Ben Sira, Qumran (Non-Biblical), and Mishna update?
  11. Hello to everyone; I have recently also purchased the Qumran non biblical module, and I have noticed that several English glosses are missing from the ipad version (but they are there in the Mac version). For example, in 4Q201 f1i:2 (Enoch a) all the glosses are missing, it provides only morphological information, but I have noticed the same problem in many other passages. The English translation doesn't help always because many fragmentary reconstructed passages are not translated. Thanks and regards

    Search for quotes

    Hello! I would like to know if someone has some way to seach an entire corpus (in this case QUMRAN) for quotes of a specific text. I want to see if 11Q5 18 is quoted somewhere throughout the QUMRAN module, but I am not sure how to do the search. Or if it is even possible. The way I have tried so far is to open a new window and enter the following search code: [RANGE 11Q5 18] <AND>* then open another and enter [RANGE *] <AND> [HITS Qumran 2] -@* Which will allow me to manually scroll through the entire QUMRAN module and look for consecutive black words. But that is very time consuming, and does not show if the consecutive black words in the second window are consecutive in the first, which would be of great significance if one would like to label it as a quote. Does anyone have a less time-consuming idea? Regards, David
  13. I am trying to compare the vocabulary of three different texts: HMT-W4 (Isaiah) DHNT (John's Epistles) Qumran (1QS) I am able to generate lists for each individual book, and I am able to generate a list of vocabulary common to Isaiah and John, Isaiah and 1QS, but not John and 1QS. I also noticed that I can compare DHNT with HMT-W4 but must use the HITS=Inflected command to compare HMT-W4 with DHNT. (I'm not sure why.) I need to compare DHNT with Qumran but I get the same error. When I use HITS=Inflected I only get a small list of words, 24 and most of those were particles. I don't think that is accurate. The problem seems to be that it is searching only for inflected forms, not lemmas. What do I need to do to compare Qumran with DHNT? If that works, then how can I compare the results of my comparisons with each other so I can generate a comparison table: In 1QS and Isaiah but not John In 1QS and John but not Isaiah In 1QS, John, and Isaiah I appreciate any help you can give me so I can finish my research paper. Thanks. Below is a log of my actions: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DHNT window use [HITS HMT-W4] OK. HMT-W4 window use [HITS DHNT] doesn't work. I get a dialog box: "The window "HMT-W4" and the Search window in the selected [HITS] command, must both have search texts with grammatical tags (unless [HITS=Inflicted] is used.)" Used [HITS=Inflected] and it worded. Returned same result as DNHT HITS HMT-W4. Used [HITS=Inflected DHNT] and it found no verses. I get a dialog box: "There are no verses in the current range of the "QUMRAN" text, which fit the current search entry." All Qumran compared to All NT: Used Qumran window [HITS=Inflected DHNT] returns only 24 words in common, most of them particles. The problem seems to be that it is searching only for inflected forms, not lemmas. Used DHNT window [HITS Qumran] and didn't work I get a dialog box: "The HITS word list cannot include any character expression (a character immediately following ".")
