The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible, by Abegg, Flint & Ulrich says on page 519
regarding Ps 22:16: 'Among the scrolls the reading in question is found only
in the Psalms scroll found at Nahal Hever (abbreviated 5/6HevPs), which
reads "They have pierced my hands and my feet"!'

Also, Schmuel's post gives a very good picture of it, as K)RW :
>(Dave, you should be able to see the DSS on the web,url link/picture below,
per the previous 2002 >discussion)

So it appears that there are actually 2 witnesses to Ps 22:16 in DSS: One
without the middle Alef and one with, but both with a final W instead of Y.
