The second tithe seems to be an annual observance according to Jub. 32:9–15; similarly Josephus Ant. IV §240, cf. §205, and again m. Maʿaser Sheni V 1, and y. Maʿaser Sheni. The second tithe is qualified with mpwgl, puʿal participle of pgl,129 “rendered unclean, disqualified” permanently or temporarily until rehabilitation, but the passage gives no indication of the reason for the disqualification of the second tithe or of the redemption money. 130 At the end of l. 12, the copyist has written mqrt, which does not make sense in this context at first sight.
284, Milik writes: “The last letter of the first word was begun like aleph then corrected to he”. It could be difficult to pronounce since ʾalef and he are complete forms. But the ʾalef is a mistake by the copyist who had first aligned the final consonant of the toponym with the usual forms ending in -’ in this scroll. For a reverse correction of he to ʾalef, one would expect that the axis or a downstroke of the ʾalef would cross one of the verticals of the he, which is not the case. Muchowski (1993) reads bḥrwbh and Lefkovits (2000) bḥrwbhʾ; a conflated reading like this is unsatisfactory.
We may discard the various hypotheses advanced by Lefkovits (2000:55–59). 89 Muchowski (1993) reads hšlšy. 90 See B. Mazar, Beth Sheʿarim: Report on the Excavations during 1936–1940, I Catacombs 1–4, New Brunswick 1973, pp. 198, 208. For the use of npš and qbr in juxtaposition, see the example of the inscriptions of the tomb of Jason and the tomb of Benē Hézîr in Jerusalem in the 1st century BC. 91 See Lefkovits 2000:59. 92 See the Introduction above. 93 Not zll “light bar” as read by Allegro, nor zrb “plaster” as read by Luria.
