Re: "Love" in the DSS

It struck me that one might get further with regard to the original 
question and intent of the questioner if one were to drop the fairly 
narrow vocabulary question and ask instead about the "piety" of the 
scrolls (I know that word has some limited and negative connotations but 
know of no better word to describe the quality of the religious 
expression of a document, religious movement, or individual).  It strikes 
me that the Thanksgiving Hymns have the potential to be a classic in the 
texts of world religions, and one might learn something about 
"spirituality" in the DSS from the study of this document even if the word, 
)hb, seems to be rare.
