I would love to see them. Unfortunately I'll have to wait until the exhibit gets to the west coast. For now I'm going to have to be satified with
the book I have titled, "Scrolls from the Dead Sea" by George Braziller. This book has photos of scroll fragments. This is what they show.
1. Damascus Document
2. Prayer for King Jonathan
3. Exodus 13:1-3 (worn as a phylactery-head band, arm band)
4. Leviticus 23:22-29
5. Psalms (six columns-noncanonical)
6. Hosea 2:10-14
7. Community Rule
8. Some Torah Precepts
9. Songs of the Sabbath Sacrifice
10. Calendrical Document
11. Enoch I ii, iii (portions)
Here's a comparison of the Qumran manuscript of Enoch I with the Ethiopian version.
Qumran Enoch I ii
12. ...But you have changed your works,
13. [and have not done according to his command, and tran]sgressed against him; (and have spoken) haughty and harsh words, with your impure mouths,
14. [against his majesty, for your heart is hard]. You will have no peace.
Ethiopian Enoch I ii
(1 Enoch 6:2-5)
2. That the works at the beginning of every existing year, that all his works, are subservient to him, and invariable; yet as God has appointed, so
are all things brought to pass.
3. They see, too, how the seas and the rivers together complete their respective operations:
4. But you endure not patiently, nor fulfil the commandments of the Lord; but you transgress and calumniate his greatness; and malignant are the words
in your polluted mouths against his Majesty.
5. Ye withered in heart, no peace shall be in you.
Qumran Enoch I iii
13. [They (the leaders) and all...of them took for themselves]
14. wives from all that they chose and [they began to cohabit with them and to defile themselves with them];
15. and to teach them sorcery and [spells and the cutting of roots; and to acquaint them with herbs.]
16. And they became pregnant by them and bo[re (great) giants three thousand cubits high...]
Ethiopian Enoch I iii
(1 Enoch 7:10-12)
10. Then they took wives, each chosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery, incantations,
and the dividing of roots and trees.
11. And the women conceiving brought forth giants,
12. Whose stature was each three hundred cubits. These devoured all which the labour of men produced; until it became impossible to feed them.
As you can see there's a lot more detail in the Ethiopian version.
They both seem to be saying the same story.
