In the above article, I have reedited 4Q200, the Hebrew Qumran copy of Tobit, in connection with the commentary on Tobit on which I am engaged.1 Following the publication I have reconsidered some of my arguments for fragment 1 ii 1. Therefore, I wish to correct the reading and translation of the said line and explain my reasons for the changes. This occasion also provides me an opportunity to introduce materials that recently came to my attention that illuminate the special relationship of Tobit to the Aramaic texts found among the Qumran scrolls, especially those concerned with the biblical patriarchs. Previously, I have discussed this issue from the perspective of Tobit’s major topics.2 However, the supplementary data I wish to present below concern particular themes and phrasing shared by Tobit and the said Aramaic texts, and throw further light on the special connection between the two.
