Abstract

This article examines the retelling of the Bigthan and Teresh account in the Aramaic poem ‘Once there was a certain Jew’ (Shirat Bene Maʿarava30:40–45). Following a presentation of the text’s content-related and linguistic difficulties, a fresh deciphering of the manuscript is offered,supported by a parallel in Midrash Panim Aḥerot B. Our reading is accompanied by a new interpretation of the text and a hypothesis about its transmission. The article concludes with a comparison of this section of the poem to other midrashic traditions.
