EXPLANATORY NOTES
1. LANGUAGE --All scrolls are in Hebrew, unless otherwise stated. The Hebrew and Aramaic scrolls read from right to left, while the Greek scroll reads from left to right.
2. WRITING --All scrolls are written in columns of varying width and number of lines. Many preserve the ruled lines as guides for the scribed; in all cases the letters are suspended from the line.
3. LACUNAE --Square brackets [] indicate lacunae or gaps in the text; these can often be filled in from other sources.
4. REFERENCES AND CITATION -- The following standard abbreviations are used:
i. RSV = Revised Standard Version of the Bible; The scripture quotations in this publication are from the Revised Standard Version of the Bible, Copyrighted 1946 and 1952 by the Division of Christian Education, National Council of Churches and used by permission.
ii. Each Dead Sea manuscript is identified by a style of identification standardized by scholars specializing in scroll research. The formula gives the following information, reading from left to right:
1. Cave number in an Arabic numeral, such as 4 for Cave 4.
2. Area in which the cave is located, such as Q for Qumrân.
3. Abbreviated name of the document, such as Ex for Exodus.
4. Number of the copy of the same document if more than one was found, such as f for the 6th copy.

Hence:

4 Q Ex f = Cave 4/Qumrân/Book of Exodus/6th copy.
