These include manuscripts from the Dead Sea region la torah original from prior to 70 C. Most of these readings are scribal errors or revisions made for the sake of greater clarity, particularly in spelling as mentioned in note 13, the matres lectionis were introduced gradually and without perfect consistency.


Some call attention to the fact that certain phrases may have fallen out of the MT, such as the missing "And God saw that this was good" in Gen.

A particularly interesting variant involves Deuteronomy 6: In the Septuagint to Deuteronmy 6: The preceding example is one of scores of passages in Talmudic litertature that quote Biblical verses with wording or spelling that differs from the MT.

But sometimes these variants agree with other ancient witnesses to the text, such as the Septuagint or the Dead Sea scrolls, proving that they are based on actual texts of the Bible. In such cases, the Talmudic rabbis were obviously confident of the accuracy of the reading la torah original relied on, and la torah original of their colleagues challenged it.

This is an important fact: However, in Koren and all the other texts used today, the middle letter la torah original letters earlier, in Leviticus 8: Talmudic-midrashic and medieval sources list between 7 and 18 Biblical passages containing "corrections of the scribes" tikkunei soferim.

The sources preserve two traditions as to what these corrections involve: Dots appear above certain letters in the Torah.

Torah Scholars Seek Original Version of Bible — But Does It Exist?

Avot deRabbi Nathan indicates that the la torah original were placed there by Ezra the scribe who explained that if Elijah should challenge his having written those letters, Ezra would point out that he had dotted them, and if Elijah should say that he was right to have written those words, he would then erase the dots.

His practice corresponds la torah original that of Alexandrian grammarians who used dots to indicate doubtful passages. There is a talmudic report that three scrolls containing variant readings were found in the Temple court.

The need to resort to this method implies that there was no sure knowledge of which readings were correct; hence there is no certainty that following the majority necessarily resulted in restoring the original reading.

The MT includes the kere and ketiv system, in which marginal notes indicate that certain la torah original are to be read la torah original than they are spelled in the text, or that certain words in the text should not be read at all, or that certain words not in the text should be read there.

Various explanations have been suggested for this system. The medieval grammarian and commentator Radak Rabbi David Kimhi, ?

The Bible "Codes" -- A Textual Perspective

The later scholars who re-established the text found different readings in the surviving manuscripts and accepted the reading found in the majority of manuscripts, but when they couldn't make up their minds about a reading they indicated both possibilities with these marginal notes.

Kimhi's explanation of the kere and ketiv system, which like the preceding item c also implies that we are not sure which are the original readings, is not the only possibility, but for present pur-poses it is noteworthy that he considered it likely and that his religious faith did not prevent him from holding this view.

The variant readings in Talmudic quotations of the Bible were well known to Jewish authorities throughout the La torah original Ages.

As the Tosafists disciples of Rashi put it: To this day, all Jewish Bibles, including the Koren Bible on which the codes are based, contain the readings that are inconsistent with those quoted in la torah original Talmud.

Discrepancies between la torah original copies of the Masoretic Text were recognized and discussed throughout the Middle Ages and beyond.
