      tc-list: a discussion list of biblical textual criticism

      This list is loosely associated with the new electronic journal _TC:
      A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism_, and it is intended for a
      discussion of any matters relating to biblical textual criticism, broadly
      defined. The rationale for the creation of the TC journal is given below.
      It is hoped that subscribers to the tc-list will reflect on and respond to
      material from articles in TC, will deal with issues that arise in the
      context of text-critical study in the community of biblical scholars at
      large, and will use the list to suggest new ideas and methodologies.
      Notes on any aspect of the textual criticism of the Jewish and Christian
      scriptures (including extracanonical and related literature) are welcome,
      and threads that transcend the traditional boundary between textual
      criticism of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament textual
      criticism are especially encouraged. We would also like to see threads
      that discuss the relationship between textual criticism and other
      disciplines.

      This list is an unmoderated list, and anyone who is a subscriber to the
      list may contribute. Conventional netiquette should be followed by all
      contributors to the list. The following points in particular should be
      kept in mind. (1) Discussion of topics other than textual criticism (or
      other topics likely to be of interest to members of the list) should be
      avoided. (2) Scholarly discussion can at times be somewhat heated, but
      civility should always prevail. (3) Contributors to the list should
      always sign their messages with their names (not just e-mail addresses).
      Additional information, such as institutional affiliation, might also be
      of interest to others on the list. (4) When responding to a message on
      the list, quote only that portion of the message that you are responding
      to, or enugh of the message to remind readers of the context of the
      discussion. In many cases it is not necessary to quote the entire message.

      Archives of tc-list are automatically maintained, and they may be
      accessed by sending a message like the following to
      majordomo@...:

      get tc-list tc-list.yymm

      where yy is a 2-digit year and mm is a 2-digit month (e.g., tc-list.9604
      for April 1996). The first month archived is November 1995 (tc-list.9511).

      Subscribing, Unsubscribing, and Sending Messages to the List
      ******************************************************************************
      To subscribe or unsubscribe, send the appropriate message to
      majordomo@... (_not_ to the list itself):

      subscribe tc-list [your e-mail address]
      unsubscribe tc-list [your e-mail address]

      The e-mail address is optional, since subscription will default to the
      address you are sending from.

      You may also subscribe to this list in digest form (i.e., messages
      bundled and sent out a few times per week) by sending this message to
      majordomo@...:

      subscribe tc-list-digest [your e-mail address]

      If you subscribe to the digest, be sure to unsubscribe from the list so
      you won't receive everything twice.

      To send a message to the list for all to read, send your message to
      tc-list@.... Don't send to tc-list-digest, even if
      you're subscribed to the digest. Just send to tc-list.

      If you do not want to receive messages for a while (e.g., you're going on
      vacation or will be away from your computer for an extended time), please
      unsubscribe from the list. There is no "vacation" command on this list.
      When you want to start receiving messages again, simply subscribe to the
      list again.

      TC: A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism
      *****************************************************************************
      One of the benefits of increasingly widespread Internet access is the
      ease with which scholars in a particular field can communicate with one
      another. Although the sciences have dominated the electronic journal
      field up until this point, several journals in the humanities are now
      available online. TC follows in the (brief) tradition of the Journal of
      Buddhist Ethics, the International Journal of Tantric Studies, and the
      Electronic Journal of Vedic Studies. As far as we are aware, TC is the
      first Web journal in the area of biblical studies.

      Why "biblical" textual criticism (rather than t-c of the NT or the Hebrew
      Bible/OT)? It is time for textual critics in the two camps to communicate
      more with one another. Textual critics in one field can only benefit by
      hearing what those in the other field have to say. The journal will
      accept papers dealing with any aspect of textual criticism of the
      OT/Hebrew Bible or NT, and it especially encourages "crossover"
      papers that deal with both areas. Papers dealing either with specific
      cruxes or with larger issues (methodology, use of versional evidence,
      etc.) are welcome. Brief notes or full-length articles are equally
      acceptable.

      Why an electronic journal? The fact of the matter is that printing a
      journal costs a lot of money (especially with recent increases in paper
      prices). In addition, it is debatable whether the field of textual
      criticism could generate a large enough base to support a paper journal.
      There are technical difficulties with displaying non-Latin characters
      that will have to be addressed, but these difficulties can be overcome.
      With an electronic journal, scholars and students around the world can
      have free access to one or another form of the journal, either via the
      World Wide Web, FTP, or e-mail.

      TC is now in the early stages of implementation (our first articles are
      now ready!), and we are looking for articles. Please submit your articles
      in electronic form to:

      Jimmy Adair
      Scholars Press
      P.O. Box 15399
      Atlanta, GA 30333-0399
      USA

      You are also welcome to send articles via e-mail to
      jadair@..., or you may upload your articles directly to
      our FTP site at ftp://scholar.cc.emory.edu/uploads/TC.

      TC has a home page on TELA, the Scholars Press World Wide Web site
      (http://scholar.cc.emory.edu/scripts/TC/TC.html), and interested parties
      can look at this page for announcements. We look forward to your
      participation in TC and tc-list!

              tc-list: a discussion list of biblical textual criticism

              This list is loosely associated with the new electronic journal _TC:
              A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism_, and it is intended for a
              discussion of any matters relating to biblical textual criticism, broadly
              defined. The rationale for the creation of the TC journal is given below.
              It is hoped that subscribers to the tc-list will reflect on and respond to
              material from articles in TC, will deal with issues that arise in the
              context of text-critical study in the community of biblical scholars at
              large, and will use the list to suggest new ideas and methodologies.
              Notes on any aspect of the textual criticism of the Jewish and Christian
              scriptures (including extracanonical and related literature) are welcome,
              and threads that transcend the traditional boundary between textual
              criticism of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament textual
              criticism are especially encouraged. We would also like to see threads
              that discuss the relationship between textual criticism and other
              disciplines.

              This list is an unmoderated list, and anyone who is a subscriber to the
              list may contribute. Conventional netiquette should be followed by all
              contributors to the list. The following points in particular should be
              kept in mind. (1) Discussion of topics other than textual criticism (or
              other topics likely to be of interest to members of the list) should be
              avoided. (2) Scholarly discussion can at times be somewhat heated, but
              civility should always prevail. (3) Contributors to the list should
              always sign their messages with their names (not just e-mail addresses).
              Additional information, such as institutional affiliation, might also be
              of interest to others on the list. (4) When responding to a message on
              the list, quote only that portion of the message that you are responding
              to, or enough of the message to remind readers of the context of the
              discussion. In many cases it is not necessary to quote the entire message.

              Archives of tc-list are automatically maintained, and they may be
              accessed by sending a message like the following to
              majordomo@...:

              get tc-list tc-list.yymm

                      The Hebrew of Isaiah 9:2 (= 9:3 in English) does have a peculiar text,
                      reading something like:
                      "You have multiplied the nation (haggoi). NOT! (lo'). You have
                      increased the joy." The editor suggests reading "You have multiplied the
                      rejoicing (haggilah), you have increased the joy." LXX reads "The major
                      part of the nation which you (m.s.) have brought down (kategages) in your
                      rejoicing." I cannot suggest withouth Hatch and Redpath how LXX derived
                      its reading from either the MT or the editor's proposed reading. I can
                      see why the BHS editor suggests taking haggoi lo as haggila, but LXX
                      supports the reading of haggoi. If a textual change were made from
                      haggilah to haggoi, it would have had to have occured prior to the
                      translation into Greek. I'd have to check in Hatch and Redpath to see
                      what words possibly lie behind katago ("bring down, lead down") to see
                      what the translator might have been seeing. But I'll leave this to folks
                      with more time.

                        the translation should read something like " You have made the nation

                                  1QIs(a) and 1QIs(b) were the first scrolls found in the caves by theBedouin
                                  shepherd boy in 1947. I saw this scroll for the first time
                                  in 1948 in Bill Albright's office at JHU. The B scroll is very similar
                                  to the MT with minor variations. The A Scroll is something else
                                  again. It uses "Qumranese" and language common to the time it was
                                  copied rather than when composed.

                                    I wonder if this lo could be another example of the emphatic particle as suggested for Ex.3:3 by Brevard Childs on p.50 of his Commentary on Exodus. See also

                                      See also Kholer-Baumgartner (English ed.) vol.2, pp510-511. A translation
                                      could then read "you have made the nations populous indeed!" A difficulty
                                      here would be that "Lo" emphatic seems usually to precede the predicate.

                                            tc-list: a discussion list of biblical textual criticism

                                            This list is loosely associated with the new electronic journal _TC:
                                            A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism_, and it is intended for a
                                            discussion of any matters relating to biblical textual criticism, broadly
                                            defined. The rationale for the creation of the TC journal is given below.
                                            It is hoped that subscribers to the tc-list will reflect on and respond to
                                            material from articles in TC, will deal with issues that arise in the
                                            context of text-critical study in the community of biblical scholars at
                                            large, and will use the list to suggest new ideas and methodologies.
                                            Notes on any aspect of the textual criticism of the Jewish and Christian
                                            scriptures (including extracanonical and related literature) are welcome,
                                            and threads that transcend the traditional boundary between textual
                                            criticism of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament textual
                                            criticism are especially encouraged. We would also like to see threads
                                            that discuss the relationship between textual criticism and other
                                            disciplines.

                                            This list is an unmoderated list, and anyone who is a subscriber to the
                                            list may contribute. Conventional netiquette should be followed by all
                                            contributors to the list. The following points in particular should be
                                            kept in mind. (1) Discussion of topics other than textual criticism (or
                                            other topics likely to be of interest to members of the list) should be
                                            avoided. (2) Scholarly discussion can at times be somewhat heated, but
                                            civility should always prevail. (3) Contributors to the list should
                                            always sign their messages with their names (not just e-mail addresses).

                                            TC: A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism
                                            *****************************************************************************
                                            One of the benefits of increasingly widespread Internet access is the
                                            ease with which scholars in a particular field can communicate with one
                                            another. Although the sciences have dominated the electronic journal
                                            field up until this point, several journals in the humanities are now
                                            available online. TC follows in the (brief) tradition of the Journal of
                                            Buddhist Ethics, the International Journal of Tantric Studies, and the
                                            Electronic Journal of Vedic Studies. As far as we are aware, TC is the
                                            first Web journal in the area of biblical studies.

                                            Why "biblical" textual criticism (rather than t-c of the NT or the Hebrew
                                            Bible/OT)? It is time for textual critics in the two camps to communicate
                                            more with one another. Textual critics in one field can only benefit by
                                            hearing what those in the other field have to say. The journal will
                                            accept papers dealing with any aspect of textual criticism of the
                                            OT/Hebrew Bible or NT, and it especially encourages "crossover"
                                            papers that deal with both areas. Papers dealing either with specific
                                            cruxes or with larger issues (methodology, use of versional evidence,
                                            etc.) are welcome. Brief notes or full-length articles are equally
                                            acceptable.

                                            Why an electronic journal? The fact of the matter is that printing a
                                            journal costs a lot of money (especially with recent increases in paper
                                            prices). In addition, it is debatable whether the field of textual
                                            criticism could generate a large enough base to support a paper journal.
                                            There are technical difficulties with displaying non-Latin characters that
                                            will have to be addressed, but some of these difficulties have already
                                            been overcome. With an electronic journal, scholars and students around
                                            the world can have free access to one or another form of the journal,
                                            either via the World Wide Web, FTP, or e-mail.

                                            TC is now in its second year of operation, and we are looking for
                                            articles. Please submit your articles in electronic form to:

                                              tc-list: a discussion list of biblical textual criticism

                                              This list is loosely associated with the new electronic journal _TC:
                                              A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism_, and it is intended for a
                                              discussion of any matters relating to biblical textual criticism, broadly
                                              defined. The rationale for the creation of the TC journal is given below.
                                              It is hoped that subscribers to the tc-list will reflect on and respond to
                                              material from articles in TC, will deal with issues that arise in the
                                              context of text-critical study in the community of biblical scholars at
                                              large, and will use the list to suggest new ideas and methodologies.
                                              Notes on any aspect of the textual criticism of the Jewish and Christian
                                              scriptures (including extracanonical and related literature) are welcome,
                                              and threads that transcend the traditional boundary between textual
                                              criticism of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament textual
                                              criticism are especially encouraged. We would also like to see threads
                                              that discuss the relationship between textual criticism and other
                                              disciplines.

                                              This list is an unmoderated list, and anyone who is a subscriber to the
                                              list may contribute. Conventional netiquette should be followed by all
                                              contributors to the list. The following points in particular should be
                                              kept in mind. (1) Discussion of topics other than textual criticism (or
                                              other topics likely to be of interest to members of the list) should be
                                              avoided. (2) Scholarly discussion can at times be somewhat heated, but
                                              civility should always prevail. (3) Contributors to the list should
                                              always sign their messages with their names (not just e-mail addresses).
                                              Additional information, such as institutional affiliation, might also be
                                              of interest to others on the list. (4) When responding to a message on
                                              the list, quote only that portion of the message that you are responding
                                              to, or enough of the message to remind readers of the context of the
                                              discussion. In many cases it is not necessary to quote the entire message.

                                              TC: A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism
                                              *****************************************************************************
                                              One of the benefits of increasingly widespread Internet access is the
                                              ease with which scholars in a particular field can communicate with one
                                              another. Although the sciences have dominated the electronic journal
                                              field up until this point, several journals in the humanities are now
                                              available online. TC follows in the (brief) tradition of the Journal of
                                              Buddhist Ethics, the International Journal of Tantric Studies, and the
                                              Electronic Journal of Vedic Studies. As far as we are aware, TC is the
                                              first Web journal in the area of biblical studies.

                                              Why "biblical" textual criticism (rather than t-c of the NT or the Hebrew
                                              Bible/OT)? It is time for textual critics in the two camps to communicate
                                              more with one another. Textual critics in one field can only benefit by
                                              hearing what those in the other field have to say. The journal will
                                              accept papers dealing with any aspect of textual criticism of the
                                              OT/Hebrew Bible or NT, and it especially encourages "crossover"
                                              papers that deal with both areas. Papers dealing either with specific
                                              cruxes or with larger issues (methodology, use of versional evidence,
                                              etc.) are welcome. Brief notes or full-length articles are equally
                                              acceptable.

                                              Why an electronic journal? The fact of the matter is that printing a
                                              journal costs a lot of money (especially with recent increases in paper
                                              prices). In addition, it is debatable whether the field of textual
                                              criticism could generate a large enough base to support a paper journal.
                                              There are technical difficulties with displaying non-Latin characters that
                                              will have to be addressed, but some of these difficulties have already
                                              been overcome. With an electronic journal, scholars and students around
                                              the world can have free access to one or another form of the journal,
                                              either via the World Wide Web, FTP, or e-mail.

                                              TC is now in its second year of operation, and we are looking for
                                              articles. Please submit your articles in electronic form to:

                                                tc-list: a discussion list of biblical textual criticism

                                                This list is loosely associated with the new electronic journal _TC:
                                                A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism_, and it is intended for a
                                                discussion of any matters relating to biblical textual criticism, broadly
                                                defined. The rationale for the creation of the TC journal is given below.
                                                It is hoped that subscribers to the tc-list will reflect on and respond to
                                                material from articles in TC, will deal with issues that arise in the
                                                context of text-critical study in the community of biblical scholars at
                                                large, and will use the list to suggest new ideas and methodologies.
                                                Notes on any aspect of the textual criticism of the Jewish and Christian
                                                scriptures (including extracanonical and related literature) are welcome,
                                                and threads that transcend the traditional boundary between textual
                                                criticism of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament textual
                                                criticism are especially encouraged. We would also like to see threads
                                                that discuss the relationship between textual criticism and other
                                                disciplines.

                                                This list is an unmoderated list, and anyone who is a subscriber to the
                                                list may contribute. Conventional netiquette should be followed by all
                                                contributors to the list. The following points in particular should be
                                                kept in mind. (1) Discussion of topics other than textual criticism (or
                                                other topics likely to be of interest to members of the list) should be
                                                avoided. (2) Scholarly discussion can at times be somewhat heated, but
                                                civility should always prevail. (3) Contributors to the list should
                                                always sign their messages with their names (not just e-mail addresses).
                                                Additional information, such as institutional affiliation, might also be
                                                of interest to others on the list. (4) When responding to a message on
                                                the list, quote only that portion of the message that you are responding
                                                to, or enough of the message to remind readers of the context of the
                                                discussion. In many cases it is not necessary to quote the entire message.

                                                Archives of tc-list are automatically maintained, and they may be
                                                accessed by sending a message like the following to

                                                Why "biblical" textual criticism (rather than t-c of the NT or the Hebrew
                                                Bible/OT)? It is time for textual critics in the two camps to communicate
                                                more with one another. Textual critics in one field can only benefit by
                                                hearing what those in the other field have to say. The journal will
                                                accept papers dealing with any aspect of textual criticism of the
                                                OT/Hebrew Bible or NT, and it especially encourages "crossover"
                                                papers that deal with both areas. Papers dealing either with specific
                                                cruxes or with larger issues (methodology, use of versional evidence,
                                                etc.) are welcome. Brief notes or full-length articles are equally
                                                acceptable.

                                                Why an electronic journal? The fact of the matter is that printing a
                                                journal costs a lot of money (especially with recent increases in paper
                                                prices). In addition, it is debatable whether the field of textual
                                                criticism could generate a large enough base to support a paper journal.
                                                There are technical difficulties with displaying non-Latin characters that
                                                will have to be addressed, but some of these difficulties have already
                                                been overcome. With an electronic journal, scholars and students around
                                                the world can have free access to one or another form of the journal,
                                                either via the World Wide Web, FTP, or e-mail.

                                                TC is now in its second year of operation, and we are looking for
                                                articles. Please submit your articles in electronic form to:

                                                  tc-list: a discussion list of biblical textual criticism

                                                  This list is loosely associated with the new electronic journal _TC:
                                                  A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism_, and it is intended for a
                                                  discussion of any matters relating to biblical textual criticism, broadly
                                                  defined. The rationale for the creation of the TC journal is given below.
                                                  It is hoped that subscribers to the tc-list will reflect on and respond to
                                                  material from articles in TC, will deal with issues that arise in the
                                                  context of text-critical study in the community of biblical scholars at
                                                  large, and will use the list to suggest new ideas and methodologies.
                                                  Notes on any aspect of the textual criticism of the Jewish and Christian
                                                  scriptures (including extracanonical and related literature) are welcome,
                                                  and threads that transcend the traditional boundary between textual
                                                  criticism of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament textual
                                                  criticism are especially encouraged. We would also like to see threads
                                                  that discuss the relationship between textual criticism and other
                                                  disciplines.

                                                  This list is an unmoderated list, and anyone who is a subscriber to the
                                                  list may contribute. Conventional netiquette should be followed by all
                                                  contributors to the list. The following points in particular should be
                                                  kept in mind. (1) Discussion of topics other than textual criticism (or
                                                  other topics likely to be of interest to members of the list) should be
                                                  avoided. (2) Scholarly discussion can at times be somewhat heated, but
                                                  civility should always prevail. (3) Contributors to the list should
                                                  always sign their messages with their names (not just e-mail addresses).
                                                  Additional information, such as institutional affiliation, might also be
                                                  of interest to others on the list. (4) When responding to a message on
                                                  the list, quote only that portion of the message that you are responding
                                                  to, or enough of the message to remind readers of the context of the
                                                  discussion. In many cases it is not necessary to quote the entire message.

                                                  One of the benefits of increasingly widespread Internet access is the
                                                  ease with which scholars in a particular field can communicate with one
                                                  another. Although the sciences have dominated the electronic journal
                                                  field up until this point, several journals in the humanities are now
                                                  available online. TC follows in the (brief) tradition of the Journal of
                                                  Buddhist Ethics, the International Journal of Tantric Studies, and the
                                                  Electronic Journal of Vedic Studies. As far as we are aware, TC is the
                                                  first Web journal in the area of biblical studies.

                                                  Why "biblical" textual criticism (rather than t-c of the NT or the Hebrew

                                                  There are technical difficulties with displaying non-Latin characters that

                                                  been overcome. With an electronic journal, scholars and students around
                                                  the world can have free access to one or another form of the journal,
                                                  either via the World Wide Web, FTP, or e-mail.

                                                  TC is now in its second year of operation, and we are looking for

                                                    tc-list: a discussion list of biblical textual criticism

                                                    This list is loosely associated with the new electronic journal _TC:
                                                    A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism_, and it is intended for a
                                                    discussion of any matters relating to biblical textual criticism, broadly
                                                    defined. The rationale for the creation of the TC journal is given below.
                                                    It is hoped that subscribers to the tc-list will reflect on and respond to
                                                    material from articles in TC, will deal with issues that arise in the
                                                    context of text-critical study in the community of biblical scholars at
                                                    large, and will use the list to suggest new ideas and methodologies.
                                                    Notes on any aspect of the textual criticism of the Jewish and Christian
                                                    scriptures (including extracanonical and related literature) are welcome,
                                                    and threads that transcend the traditional boundary between textual
                                                    criticism of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament and New Testament textual
                                                    criticism are especially encouraged. We would also like to see threads
                                                    that discuss the relationship between textual criticism and other
                                                    disciplines.

                                                    This list is an unmoderated list, and anyone who is a subscriber to the
                                                    list may contribute. Conventional netiquette should be followed by all
                                                    contributors to the list. The following points in particular should be
                                                    kept in mind. (1) Discussion of topics other than textual criticism (or
                                                    other topics likely to be of interest to members of the list) should be
                                                    avoided. (2) Scholarly discussion can at times be somewhat heated, but
                                                    civility should always prevail. (3) Contributors to the list should
                                                    always sign their messages with their names (not just e-mail addresses).
                                                    Additional information, such as institutional affiliation, might also be
                                                    of interest to others on the list. (4) When responding to a message on
                                                    the list, quote only that portion of the message that you are responding
                                                    to, or enough of the message to remind readers of the context of the
                                                    discussion. In many cases it is not necessary to quote the entire message.

                                                    One of the benefits of increasingly widespread Internet access is the
                                                    ease with which scholars in a particular field can communicate with one
                                                    another. Although the sciences have dominated the electronic journal
                                                    field up until this point, several journals in the humanities are now
                                                    available online. TC follows in the (brief) tradition of the Journal of
                                                    Buddhist Ethics, the International Journal of Tantric Studies, and the
                                                    Electronic Journal of Vedic Studies. As far as we are aware, TC is the
                                                    first Web journal in the area of biblical studies.

                                                    Why "biblical" textual criticism (rather than t-c of the NT or the Hebrew
                                                    Bible/OT)? It is time for textual critics in the two camps to communicate
                                                    more with one another. Textual critics in one field can only benefit by
                                                    hearing what those in the other field have to say. The journal will
                                                    accept papers dealing with any aspect of textual criticism of the
                                                    OT/Hebrew Bible or NT, and it especially encourages "crossover"
                                                    papers that deal with both areas. Papers dealing either with specific
                                                    cruxes or with larger issues (methodology, use of versional evidence,
                                                    etc.) are welcome. Brief notes or full-length articles are equally
                                                    acceptable.

                                                    Why an electronic journal? The fact of the matter is that printing a
                                                    journal costs a lot of money (especially with recent increases in paper
                                                    prices). In addition, it is debatable whether the field of textual
                                                    criticism could generate a large enough base to support a paper journal.
                                                    There are technical difficulties with displaying non-Latin characters that
                                                    will have to be addressed, but some of these difficulties have already
                                                    been overcome. With an electronic journal, scholars and students around
                                                    the world can have free access to one or another form of the journal,
                                                    either via the World Wide Web, FTP, or e-mail.

                                                    TC is now in its second year of operation, and we are looking for
