The major expansions in the Samaritan pentateuch : the evidence from the 4Q Texts


There are 39 major expansions in the SP: 37 major insertions and two transpositions. 16 of the insertions and transpositions are extant in the biblical 4Q-texts, a further 10 were reconstructed by the editors of DJD IX and XII, making a total of 26 out of 39 major variants. In the case of the two Gen-interpolations and the two Deut-insertions we have textual evidence from the 4QRP-texts. In the remaining 9 cases the 4Q-texts are not extant. It seems that these expansions constitute a distinct layer in the SP. The laws in Exod. 21-23; Lev; Num. 1-10 (with one exception) and Deut. have not received any major interpolations. A similar situation is found in the case of the narratives in Gen. Only two instances can be found. The insertions are unevenly distributed: 10 of them are concentrated in Exod. 6-11, and 15 are copied from Deut. 1-3, one into Exod., the rest into Num. In 8 cases in Exod. 6-11 the prophetic formula ?Thus says the Lord? is used. The insertions copied from Deut. 1-3 are often introduced by ?The Lord spoke to [Moses]? in the second. These expressions are present in the original places, but they are copied and used in the expansions. Thus Moses is depicted as a prophetic mediator. This editing is in line with a series of texts in the Pentateuch, emphasizing the status of Moses as a prophet.
