orion-list Amusin Thanks, 4QD biblio query

    Thanks to all who responded with information on Amusin's publication in Ve

I have noticed that only rarely is there a correspondence between 4QD 
references in Charlotte Hempel's _The Laws of the Damascus Document_ (Brill, 
1998) and the numbering in the translation I habitually use by Garcia 
Martinez. For instance, a passage labeled 4QD(b) 6 ii 1-16 in Garcia Martinez 
is cited as 4QD(a) 5 ii 1-16 in Hempel, etc., apparently reflecting 
controversy over which fragments belong to which document.  Who is currently 
the authoritative source to use on 4QD?  (I am guessing Baumgarten in Qumran 
Cave 4 XIII which remarkably is not yet accessible locally.  Charlesworth's 
volume with CD + 4QD fragments edited by Baumgarten was disappointingly 

    Thanks again,
    Russell Gmirkin
