The contribution of the fragmentary scrolls of Genesis-Numbers to the history of the biblical text lies in both primary and secondary readings. The former consist of variants to Gen 22:14; Exod 1:5; 39:21; Lev 26:30–31; Num 32:30. The latter are extant in Exod 2:3; Lev 1:1–7; 17:4; Num 18:26; 20:13 and chapters 27 + 36. The secondary readings are instructive concerning the transmission of the biblical text during the Second Commonwealth. They derived from ideological motives or literary concerns.
