In the introductory section the first two chapters give a description of the principal printed editions and the manuscripts. A chapter on The Stemma considers how the various strands of textual tradition relate to each other. There is also a chapter on Multiple Translation, a phenomenon particularly associated with the Targum of Job whereby more than one translation is often given to whole verses or to individual words and phrases. A final chapter describes in detail the methods underlying the critical edition. This book will provide a useful tool for those working on the textual criticism of the Old Testament and for those interested in the history of Jewish biblical exegesis.
