The Great Qumran Isaiah Scroll
For the line by line translation of this page click here
This is the first of four pages in the fifth section of leather that makes up the scroll. This section is fairly regular with not very much missing from the top and bottom margin. The seam at the right is regular and shows only a small amount of repair.. The most prominent features that are seen are two holes in the center of the page which distort the words near by but no letters are lost which can not be read. There is a flaw in the leather that extends from lines 14 to 17 midway on the left side of the page. The original scribe left a gap in line 15 and 17 so that the text would not be distorted. He actually wrote around the flaw indicating its presence when the text was first written.
The paragraphs with a line left blank to the end in the preceding line all begin with “mas’a” (an oracle). Paragraphs begin on lines: 4 (chapter 20:1); line 14 (chapter 21:1); line 28 (20:11) line 30 (20:13).
An editor has marked a section with lines in the right margin between Chapter 20:1 and 22:12.
