In conclusion, I may observe that the i"IMn TttCTJJn must be regarded as corresponding to the fclK'n, the thought or plan under- lying the moral administration of the world which Koheleth tells us that he sought so earnestly to find out, though without success (Eccles. vii. 25, &c). Thomas Tyler. MEGILLATH ZUTTA: NOTE ON J. Q.R., VIII, 541 sqq., AND IX, 721. Two more fragments of the Megillath Zutta have lately been acquired by the Bodleian Library, which enable us to complete the text published by Dr. Neubauer. The five fragments are now bound together as MS. Heb. e. 82, in the following order : (a) one page as printed in J. Q. R., IX, 721 ; (b) three leaves, not continuous, beginning spi33 TVTQ, as in J. Q. R., VIII, 544 ; (c) one leaf, beginning irP3^ tprm, J. Q. R-, VIII, 544, 1. 10 of the Hebrew, ending TINEO TNI, ibid., 546, 1. I ; (d) seven leaves, beginning ^ }ytt>D, J- Q- -R-> VIII, 545, 1. 1 1, to the end of the composition ; (e) five leaves, beginning ntj>5»e> ova, J. Q. R-, viii, 545, 1. 20, to Dani anrv, p- 55°. 1- 1°- The new fragments are c and e, both fortunately more legible than the other leaves coinciding with them, from which the text was published. Fragment c completes the lacuna in J. Q. R., VIII, 545, thus : — vrohao Dim • on-mb nvn (line 10) Derm jins vim vm nwm innw tiu «h -ibu pro • ii>tu ba to fay bxi vn^yo -am Wi D'ajy twvb ipM DnnKVii nw^sn nipyi vty t6i ion n5> nm Yon b»k "ran rvni • voo $>y 32*1 • u[3i] Tun [i]3jn * D*e>wa .(line Ii) " • "n»y$> ni3 13 1B>K1 * *]^n W [}yCD] The popularity of this Megillah may be judged from the fact that all the five fragments differ in shape, size, and writing, and must therefore represent different copies.
