orion 4 Q Sam a at 1 Samuel 17:12-31
This may be an issue long ago resolved, but I need some information
concerning 4 Q Sam a at 1 Samuel 17:12-31. In The Story of David and
Goliath (Orbis...No. 73), Lust, Tov, Gooding and Barthelemy discussed
the shorter and longer accounts. Either Lust or Tov (I do not have
the book in front of me) suggested that it was his belief that 4 Q
Sam a probably followed the LXX Vaticanus reading which omits the
verses in question. Has this been verified by Cross or elsewhere?
If is has not yet been so verified or denied in print, is it possible
to deduce that information from columnar length and number? How far
are we from the publication of DJD vol. 6(?) which will show the
photographs? This is certainly a crucial matter for textual and
rhetorical analysis of the passage.
Thanks for any and all help.
