The Number of Psalms in 1QHodayota and Some of their Sections
Since the E.L. Sukenik edition of 1QHodayot (1954), there has been some discussion on the incipits of new hymns in this scroll and on the question of where these might be only sections within longer hymns. The physical reconstructions of the entire scroll by Hartmut Stegemann (1963, unpublished) and by Emile Puech (Journal of Jewish Studies 39, 1988, p. 38-55) considerably enlarged the data-base (25 of 28 original columns are now established in their original sequence). The edition of 4QHodayota-f (4Q427-432) by Eileen Schuller (DJD XXIX, 1999, p. 69-232) clarifies some earlier problems and provides further basic direction.
