INTRODUCTORY NOTES SECTION 09:

More than One Scribe:

There is evidence that more than one scribe worked on the original text of the scroll.

Spelling evidence:

Some words are consistently misspelled for a number of pages and then the spelling alternates to a correct form. The initial portion of the book spells particles and conjunctions and prepositions like “lo, kiy, miy, biy, etc. in the same way as M but there is an alternation of leaving off this normal spelling to consistently adding aleph to the end of each of these forms. The breaks in usage are abrupt and other anomalies are associated with the changes in spelling that indicate that a different hand is inscribing the page at hand than the one that did the last page. The spelling of the suffixes “kem” and “hem” just so in the earlier pages and changing to a consistent spelling of “kemah” and “hemah” in the latter pages is further evidence of a different hand and/or a different “accent.” Page 12[1]SEE: http://www.moellerhaus.com/qum-12.htm#editorsis a good page to see different hands in editorial additions.

The Number of Mistakes

Although there are variations on every page in Q from the M text there are some pages where the variations are due to carelessness and clumsy inscription that seems to mark a different hand has taken the pen. We will cite these pages in the text.
