Interlinear Transliteration of Plate 538 in 3 Fragments of Greek Minor Prophets Scroll from Nahal Hever (Dead Sea Scrolls) based on the original text in 1st or 2nd Century Greek (Roman Period). The original manuscript is written on parchment in Uncial Greek Script is a translation of the Zechariah from Hebrew and was discovered in the “Cave of Horror”. Plate 538 is of special significance for translators and Bible scholars in that while being a translation written in Greek, the text preserves the Tetragrammaton in its Paleo-Hebrew (Pre-Babylonian Exile) script. The preservation of the Tetragrammaton within the Greek text gives archeological and linguistic proof that the Tetragrammaton was not only known but also in use among the early Christians and in the early Christian congregation. This paper is designed to provide a reconstructed text as a template for Biblical translations with a greater level of accuracy and has been cross referenced with existing Greek and Hebrew manuscripts in order to establish an authentic reading.
