Re: biblical texts used devotionally

See DJD VI, p. 86, where Milik says of 4Q156 (Targum of Leviticus), 
that it was not a targum in the sense of a continuous translation of a 
biblical book, but "ils pourraient provenir d'un ouvrage liturgigue ou 
rituel ou` certaines parties seraient des traductions litte'rales de 
quelques sections du Pentateuque; cf. le rituel arameen dans la 
Description de la Jerusalem Nouvelle (2Q24; DJD III, pp 85-8)."
