Dear Juan and David,
the problem with regard to the Hodayot (1QH-a) is the fact that the
first and official edition, the one by Sukenik, did not present the
parts of the scroll in the correct order.
Several scholars, notably Stegemann and Puech, reconstructed
the original order of the scroll, but we are still awaiting the new
edition of the Hodayot by Stegemann.
In the mean time, several scholars, like e.g. Garcia Martinez,
already departed from the numbering given by Sukenik, and
adopted the numbering proposed by Puech in several publications.
Therefore, the first column in Garcia Martinez corresponds to frag.
16 and 11 of Sukenik, and, e.g. Sukenik's col. I is col. IX in Garcia
martinez. This all is very confusing to the non initiated, and for the
time being all references to 1QH should consist of a double
numbering. Unfortunately Garcia Martinez in his translations, and
Garcia Martinez and myself in our Study Edition, adopted the
column numbers as proposed by Puech (and Stegemann) but not
the line numbers. In short, we really have here a big mess.
To my knowledge there is no published list of exact
correspondences between the Sukenik edition and the Stegemann
proposal. Garcia Martinez's translation at least can help one to find a
correspondence of columns. On the other hand several lists of
correspondences are now finding their way in the scholarly world.
All I can advise is to have patience, and try to find the
correspondences by comparing large sections of the translations.
