BHQ Judges is out

The Biblia Hebraica Quinta fascicle of Judges is out. See here. [via Jack Sasson]


  1. The original reading was probably "touted," which a careless scribe shortened to "outed." An Orthodox scribe (weren't they all?) didn't like the connotations of "outed" and decided that "out" fit the context much better, so an Orthodox Corruption ensued.

    By the way, I don't like the new CAPTCHA. Every word looks like a scribal corruption, scribble, or maybe even dribble. I mean drivel.
