Introduction 27 6. The synonyms kn and kdn/kdyn in the Pal. Tgs. Lund and Foster93 also note that the HT Pentateuch uses kn (“so, thus”) ninety-six times. As rendering, Nf has kn sixteen times, kdyn or kdn seventy-one times, other ren­ ditions nine times. Against the seventy-one text usages of kdn/kdyn, Nfmg gives kn thirty-seven times. Three additional instances fall where Nfmg were not done. All three forms are found in the CTg texts: kn fifteen times (CTg C, 3; CTg E, 11; CTg F, 1); knyn seven times (CTg C, 2; CTg D, 4; Ctg F, 11); kdn eight times (CTg B, 1; CTg D, 2; CTg E, 1; CTg F, 4).

In 3:17; Deut 27:3, “good” is omitted in N f (added in Nfmg). In Lev 33:3; Deut 6:3; 11:9; 26:9; 31:20, N f has “sweet and tasty,” found also as a variant in a number of Nfmg and in VNL Deut 6:3; 26:15, not however in CTg AA.

Thus, “Remember the sabbath day” of Exod 20:8 is rendered (in CTg F) as “Beware (regarding) (hwwn zhyryn) the sabbath day,” in Klein’s view under the associative influence of Deut 5:12. Simi­ larly, Lev 23:2 is rendered under the influence of the similar verse in Lev 19:9, and Deut 5:23(26) is rendered in some texts in association with Deut 4:7, 8. -J. Targum. It is worthy of note, however, that this law seems to be less operative in Nf than in other Targums. -J. 6. Converse translation An interpretative technique isolated by M.
