Hello all,

 

Reading through Leviticus, I notice that in the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible module, Manuscript order, all the final letters – ן ,ם and ף – are missing (replaced with נ ,מ and פ) from 11Q1 fB:1 to 11q1 fu:1. I'm assuming this is an error and will be reporting it by email. But I did want to check with those who may be more knowledgeable on the subject. Would there be any reason why, in these mss, the final letters were not used?

 

Thanks!

11Q1, also known as 11Q paleoLev, is written in the Paleo-Hebrew script, which does not have distinct final forms.
