LAMENTATIONS 1:8A IN THE WORDINGS OF THE MASORETIC TEXT AND 4QLAM

Gideon R. Kotzé

Abstract


This study takes as its point of departure the view that 4QLam, one of the
manuscripts of Lamentations from Qumran, holds great significance for both textcritics
and exegetes who study Lamentations. To illustrate the significance of the
manuscript, this study analyses the wordings of Lamentations 1:8 in 4QLam and the
Masoretic text text-critically and provides interpretive comments on the differences
between the two Hebrew textual representatives. In this regard, the study focuses on
the variant readings dwnl and hdynl.
