      Atef, according to Ulrich, 4QXII(a, g, and f) have Jonah, but not this verse. The Nahal Hever Greek minor prophets scroll apparently reads "forty," however.

      Hi all,

      In Jonah 3:4 in the MT it says that after forty days the city will be destroyed.
      While in the LXX is says after three days...etc

      The explanation I read about this is that this is a coying error in the LXX.

      I checked it in Coptic and found it "three", i believe that this is because it is based on the LXX.

      My Question is: do we have copies of the book of Jonah in the Dead Sea scrolls? and if so what does it read?

      Thank you very much.

      In Christ,
