TABLE
The Evidence for the Use of the Conjunction
at the Beginning of Cola, in the
Hebrew Text and the Principal Versions

In the following table, the evidence is given for the use of the conjunction at the beginning of each colon from vs. 4 to the end of the poem. If no conjunction appears, that fact is indicated by a dash (-); if the conjunction does appear, it is indicated by the following signs: w for MT (Hebrew), kai for LXX (Greek), et for V (Latin), and w for S (Syriac); other particles are transliterated. Variant readings are indicated in parentheses beneath the standard text.

For MT, BH3 was used. Variant readings were derived from the critical apparatus of BH3, and of C. D. Ginsburg's The Old Testament diligently revised according to the Masorah, etc., London, 1926. Additional readings were found in G. B. de Rossi's Variae Lectiones Veteris Testamenti, Parma, 1785.

For the LXX, the text of Codex Vaticanus (B) was followed. Variant readings for the text of II Samuel 22 were taken from the critical apparatus of the Cambridge Edition of the Septuagint, The Old Testament in Greek, ed. by A. E. Brooke, N. McLean and St. H. John Thackeray, Vol. II, Part I ( I and II Samuel), Cambridge, 1927; and for Psalm 18, from the apparatus in Swete's edition of the Old Testament in Greek, Vol. II ( 3rd ed.), Cambridge, 1907, and Rahlfs' Septuaginta, Vol. II, Stuttgart, 1935.

For the Latin, the standard Clementine edition of the Vulgate has been used in the case of II Samuel 22. Variant readings were derived from C. Vercellone's Variae Lectiones Vulgatae Latinae Bibliorum, Vol. II, Rome, 1864. In the case of Psalm 18, P. de Lagarde's critical edition of the Psalterium iuxta Hebraeos Hieronymi was used. Variant readings were derived from the critical apparatus, Vercellone's material, and the Latin column of E. Nestle's Psalterium Tetraglottum, Tübingen, 1879.

For the Peshitta, the facsimile edition of the Codex Ambrosianus, published by Ceriani in two vols., 1876-1883, was used. Variant readings were taken from the standard edition of the Peshitta published by S. Lee in London, 1823, and from the
