I would like to thank the editors of Dead Sea Discoveries for giving me the opportunity to respond to Elizabeth Owen’s article (vol. 4:2, July 1997), which makes extensive use of my previous work on 4QDeutn. While I find myself in broad agreement with her conclusions (see below), I feel that her article, with its heavy reliance on my unpublished doctoral dissertation, gives a misleading impression of my scholarship on 4QDeutn, and I would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight.
