Wisdom of Ben Sira


Muraoka, Takamitsu (2023). Wisdom of Ben Sira. Leuven, Paris, Bristol: Peeters Publishers.

Abstract

A philological commentary on the book of Ben Sira accompanied by a full translation of the Greek text in the Septuagint. Similar in content to the book of Proverbs, and though not canonical, but read and studied by the ancient Jewish community, as shown by a considerable quantity of fragments of its Hebrew original discovered in a storage room of a synagogue in Cairo and among the documents discovered in Qumran caves and the Judaean Desert. All these data as well as two ancient Syriac translations have been fully taken into account.
