‭This article investigates possible sources behind the Targum in Jacob ben Hayyim’s Rabbinic Bible (Venice 1525), which served as the authoritative text for centuries. The previous edition of the Rabbinic Bible (Venice 1517) already received much attention in this regard and this inquiry builds on those findings. It focuses on the Targum of 1Samuel and compares Ben Hayyim’s deviations from the former Rabbinic Bible with various manuscripts. It allows for a tentative conclusion regarding Ben Hayyim’s Targum Vorlage.‬
