Check out this site, David:

http://www.torahresource.com/Newsletter/Ps22.16.pdf

It has a good enhanced photo and explanation of the
textual issues particularly related to Peter Flint’s
publication of a NAKHAL KHEVER scrap of Psa. 22 (DJD,
vol. 38, Col. XI, frag. 9, Oxford).  In short, KA’ARU
(“they dug”) has another ancient witness.
