BHD on Papyrus Amherst 63

BIBLE HISTORY DAILY: Israelite Psalms in an Egyptian Papyrus? Papyrus Amherst 63 up close (Karel van der Toorn). As usual, this is a teaser for a BAR article behind the subscription wall: Karel van der Toorn, “Egyptian Papyrus Sheds New Light on Jewish History.” But it does include full translations of the three Israelite psalms.

Professor van der Toorn has recently published an edition of Papyrus Amherst 63.

Past PaleoJudaica posts on this remarkable manuscript, which contains Aramaic documents written in the late-Egyptian Demotic script, are here and links
