MetadataShow full item record
The critical text of Ezekiel is currently being prepared for the Oxford Hebrew Bible project. This project has as its aim to reconstruct an 'original' text, or rather to provide an eclectic text containing the readings preferred by the individual editor. This article deals with issues related to the work on Ezekiel, with special attention to the questions raised by the Septuagint and Peshitta. An example is provided of a proposed text of Ezekiel 1:1-9, with a discussion of relevant examples from this passage. This article deals with recent developments in editorial policy as well.
