Abstract :
Discussion of חמתנדבים in the Dead Sea Scrolls has been focused mainly on the structure of the Qumran community; namely, wether the term refers to the Community as a whole or to a particular sub-group within it. The sociological importance of this question might be responsible for what seems to be a neglect of the syntatic and semantic aspects of the lexeme. As a matter of fact, the definitions found in Biblical Hebrew lexicons are not eaily applied to Qumran Hebrew.
