Missing Paragraph 4QSam(a) 10-11 Recreation


Missing Paragraph 4QSam(a) 10-11 Recreation on real papyrus. In the Dead Sea Scroll 4QSam(a) a missing paragraph was found between chapters 10 and 11 of I Samuel. It says, "Nahash king of the Ammonites oppressed the Gadites and the Reubenites viciously. He put out the right eye of all of them and brought fear and trembling on Israel. Not one of the Israelites in the region beyond the Jordan remained whose right eye Nahash king of the Ammonites did not put out, except seven thousand men who escaped from the Ammonites and went to Jabesh-gilead" (The Dead Sea Scroll Bible translated by Abegg, Flint, and Ulrich page 225). Then verse one of I Samuel 11 starts. This helps explain the opening verses of I Samuel 11. This paragraph is also found in the Greek LXX and Josephus.
