"The language of verses 5 (LLX) [sic], 19, 20, seems decisive in favor
of the former."
 
Hi Dave,
 
What does this mean?
 
Philip.
 
  
 
Philip,
According to P.W. Skehan, "A Fragment of the 'Song of Moses' (Deut 32)
from 
Qumran" in BASOR 136 (1954) p. 12-15, v. 43 reads as follows:
 
hrnynw $mym `mw
wh$txww lw kl 'lhym
ky dm bnyw yqwm
wnqm y$yb lcryw
wlmsn'yw y$lm
wykpr 'dmt `mw
 
Skehan's note says 
in part on v.43, "bnyw, with LXX, as against MT `bdyw.  The language of 
verses 5 (LLX) [sic], 19, 20, seems decisive in favor of the former."
