How to read these pages:

•      The translation to the left is based on the World English Bible. Words in regular black font are words in the scrolls matching the traditional text for that passage.

•      Words in italics cannot be seen in the scroll, since the scroll is fragmentary. These words are supplied for readability by the World English Bible translation.

•      Words present in the scroll but with some letters unreadable or missing are in blue like this: blue. One Hebrew word often is translated into multiple English words, and when this occurs, all the English words are in blue.

•      Words present in the scroll but with spelling differences that do not affect the meaning are in green like this: green. This is common in Hebrew.

•      If the scroll is different from the traditional text, words in the traditional text that are missing from the text of the scroll are marked through in red like this: strike-through.

•      If the scroll is different from the traditional text, words in the scroll that are not in the traditional text are underlined in red like this: new words.
