Abstract

Two separate layers of historical commentary may be discerned in Pesher Habakkuk (1QpHab): one layer reflecting the second century B.C.E., and dealing primarily with the Teacher of Righteousness; the other relating to the Kittim who, in this Pesher, should be identified with the Romans. It appears that the later layer was composed after the conquest of Judea by Pompey in 63 B.C.E. According to this assumption, columns II: 10 - IV: 13 and V:12 - VI: 12 are commentaries that were added to Pesher Habakkuk in the first century B.C.E. In addition, it would appear that a further section of Pesher Habakkuk - column IX: 3-7 - was brought up to date at the same time.
