Why the Siloam inscription? And the Hinnom amulets, one 50% of the Blessing
of Aaron. the second 75%, but this is a religious formulaic text that can
have existed for centuries before it was included in the narrative in
Numbers. Who can say? But again, why Siloam, because these few lines are so
far the most comprehensive that has appeared from the territory of the
ancient state of Judah--not to say Israel.
