HH: I don't know, Karl. You'll have to research that for yourself. I saw
that some comparisons have been made between the great Isaiah Scroll and
claims about changes in the divine name, but that is not the tiqqune
sopherim. The Sopherim are believed to have established the text, and
they finished their work in about 300 B.C. So textual evidence of what
existed before their work should not be expected in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
