The Old Testament Hebrew scriptures were painstakingly copied by Jewish scribes, who had a deep reverence for the texts they were copying.
Their reverence was coupled with strict rules governing their work:
the type of parchment used, the size of the columns, the kind of ink, and the spacing of words were all prescribed.
Writing anything from memory was expressly forbidden, and the lines, words, and even the individual letters were methodically counted as a means of double-checking accuracy.
The result of all this was that the words written by Isaiah’s pen are still available today. The discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls clearly confirms the…
precision of the Hebrew text.
