Example text

This particular angel of the presence is apparently the angel, the one often chosen by God for special tasks, such 44 [í]éðåøçà[ä] in Q col. :. I believe this last phrase may be a mistake, the scribe having written the common phrase íìåò ãò and then corrected himself with the words immediately following, øùà ãò ãøà. If not, one is left with the troubling assertion that the chronological history of Jubilees runs “until eternity,” which of course it does not. The only alternative is to understand the author to be saying that the series of jubilees whose significant arrangement is attested in the Torah and the Book of Warning does indeed run “until eternity,” even if Jubilees covers only a small segment thereof.

This is as specific as Jubilees’ author ever gets with regard to later history; cf. ch.  below. e. My laws, Q : éúå÷ç], My commandments, and My covenantal festivals (Q, col. : has éãòåî éúéøá, not a biblical phrase): Jubilees may be alluding to the covenants God established with Israel’s ancestors and which—according to Jubilees—were the basis for such later festivals as Weeks and Booths. The sins that are listed next, making high places (úåîá) and [sacred] groves (úåøùà) are stereotypical sins mentioned in Scripture (Deut :, :); it seems unlikely that these were a real problem in Jubilees’ day.

The phrase Then we [angels] saw His works and blessed Him is likewise paralleled in Q “Hymn to the Creator,” where the point of this remark is made explicit, “since He showed them what they had not know,” that is, the angels were mere spectators and not active participants. ::61 On the third day God created the garden of Eden [which is] in Eden for enjoyment and for food: Was “Eden” a description of the kind of garden it was, a garden of luxuriating (since ïãò can mean “luxuriate” 58 The phrase “thunders and lightnings” is found both in Eth and Epiphanius, but impossible in Q :; cf.
