Abstract

On ibn Bal‘am’s commentary on the Minor Prophets. In his footnotes to the edited text of Ibn Balʿam’s commentary Poznański sporadically cites the anonymous reworking of Yefet b. Eli’s Judaeo-Arabic translation of the Latter Prophets in Ms. Hunt. 206 of the Bodleian Library (per those portions edited by Heisz {https://www.zotero.org/groups/biblia_arabica/items/itemKey/JR39UDLB}, Klein {https://www.zotero.org/groups/538215/biblia_arabica/items/itemKey/TP5YI7J7/q/klein}, Friedmann {https://www.zotero.org/groups/538215/biblia_arabica/items/itemKey/IGJ5MT8M/q/friedmann}, and Schröter {https://www.zotero.org/groups/538215/biblia_arabica/items/itemKey/2EEXHZ9V/q/schröter}{https://www.zotero.org/groups/538215/biblia_arabica/items/itemKey/DVM2SEFS/q/schröter}). On the later identification of this Ms. with Yefet’s work see, inter alios, P. Birnbaum’s 1942 edition of Yefet on Hosea {https://www.zotero.org/groups/538215/biblia_arabica/items/itemKey/34RLRYC5/q/birnbaum} and E. Schlossberg’s 2000 Pe‘amim article {https://www.zotero.org/groups/538215/biblia_arabica/items/itemKey/NY3EPQ72/q/schlossberg}.
