In the manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible and of the Septuagint there is no clear indication of a textual division similar to that found in modern translations of the Bible at the beginning and at the end of chapter 3. On the other hand, the ancient Hebrew Mss display an intriguing break in the middle of 3,16, traditionally called a pisqah be’emṣa' pasuq, “a break in the middle of the verse”. Starting from these observations we will first survey the major textual divisions in chapter three and its immediate context, according to the Hebrew and Greek Mss, comparing them with the structural indications within the text, and then turn to text-critical remarks on the chapter.
