Abstract

Clarifying exegesis (ch. 7) is analyzed and grouped into four subcategories: clarification of the speaker or addressee in dialogue, clarification of actor, clarification of location, and contextual explications. GL features the most examples of clarifying exegesis, probably due to conflations with mt arising during recensional activity. Clarifications of locations appear more frequently in 4QSamuela in comparison with the other witnesses, while mt features more frequent clarifications of actor.
