This article offers an edition of the new Ben Sira fragment of manuscript D identified by Sarah Cohen and published by S. Elizur and M. Rand. The analysis focuses essentially on the textual criticism of Sir 7:18-8:18 attested by this witness. The text is evaluated in relation to the other Hebrew manuscripts (A and C) as well as to the Greek and Syriac versions. The study shows that both witnesses A and D contain similar alterations and probably belong to a same family of manuscripts.
