About the Author

Current Status as of January 16, 2016:

This web site contains translations of 223 of the 223 Biblical Dead Sea Scrolls. These translations are available on the Scroll View portion of the web site. The last and most recent scroll translated was 4Q51 Samuela. The Chapter View portion of the web site contains a chapter by chapter translation of the Dead Sea Scrolls for all Biblical books.


The effort to translate all the scrolls was completed on December 6, 2015, and the Chapter View section of the web site was completed on January 16, 2016. Some work needs to be done to make the terminology in the footnotes consistent, and corrections will continue to be made for any errors discovered.


The table below provides a detailed list of the scrolls which have been translated.
