For decades a concordance in printed form of all the Dead Sea Scrolls has been a major desideratum for scholarship. The Dead Sea Scrolls Concordance covers all the Qumran material as published in the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series, as well as the major texts from cave 1 and cave 11, which appeared elsewhere.
This keyword-in-context concordance, prepared by Martin G. Abegg in collaboration with other scholars, contains a new and consistent linguistic analysis of all the words found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. The total number of entries will be around 180,000, which is nearly half the size of a concordance for the entire Hebrew Bible. Every entry includes the keyword with its context, exactly as published in the editions referred to above, with notes on some readings. All keywords have an English translation, and they will be listed in alphabetical order rather than by verbal root, which makes the concordance easier to consult for the non-specialist.
This concordance to the non-biblical texts from Qumran is the first of a projected series of three. Future volumes will consist of concordances to the biblical texts from Qumran and to the texts from other sites in the Judean Desert.
'At long last we now have the research tool on the Dead Sea Scrolls that we have been eagerly awaiting--a complete and up-to-date concordance that is readily accessible. Abegg's work supersedes the earlier, more limited, and preliminary attempts and thus gives us a wonderful entry into the entire Qumran corpus.' James C. VanderKam, John A. O'Brien Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame, USA
