The Oxford Bible Commentary Line-by-line commentary for the New Revised Standard Version Bible.

Text.

The received Hebrew text (MT) of Lamentations is relatively well preserved and raises fewer problems than much OT poetry (examples are found in 1:14; 3:22; 5:5 ). The evidence of the ancient versions, such as the Greek LXX, is rarely very helpful, since for the most part they seem to reflect a Hebrew text close to the MT. The Dead Sea scrolls have yielded a range of remains from Lamentations (Fitzmyer 1990: 232), of which the most important is 4QLama (Hillers 1992: 41–8). For detailed discussion of the text of Lamentations, see especially Albrektson (1963) and Gottlieb (1978 ).
