4Q287: Spirit and Messia

"The Holy Spirit rested on His Messiah" is not the correct reading of 
4Q287. For the correct one "[speaking rebe]llion against the anointed 
ones of His holy spirit" see J. T. Milik, "Milki-sedeq et Milki-resa`," 
JJS 23 (1972), p. 134. See also my paper "Processes of Emergence of 
Sectarian Texts in Qumran," Beit Mikra 40/3 [142] (1995), p. 247.
