The Song of Miriam (4Q365 6a ii + 6c 1–7) Revisited

From: Journal of Biblical Literature
Volume 132, Number 4, 2013
pp. 905-911 | 10.1353/jbl.2013.0056



This article explores the expanded Song of Miriam preserved in the Qumran scroll 4Q365 (4QReworked Pentateuchc). While several scholars have discussed the significance of Miriam’s Song and elucidated its vocabulary, no attempt has yet been made to clarify some of the difficult readings found in this passage. A fresh inspection of the fragments suggests that the available edition of the text can be improved on. The new readings and reconstructions proposed here demonstrate the text’s dependence on the Moses’ Song of the Sea yet also highlight the peculiar vocabulary of this version of the Song of Miriam.
