Qumran Psalms - 7 more examples

There was a very fine and detailed handout for this lecture. So I can summarize several examples of texts from Qumran that allow one to see variances and some decisions on what another version of the text might have been. It is interesting to note the Biblical translations that have used these variants or not used them. 17 recent translations were part of the study. I will post more on these individually later.

This grid shows which translation took what action with the subject verse
