Polarity is written bold-face. There is the priest who speaks for God and the wicked priest (9:9–12; 11:4–6), the inspired true expositor and the lying oracle (2:1–3; 5:10–12).

Klinghardt, Gemeinschaftsmahl und Mahlgemeinschaft: Soziologie und Liturgie frühchristlicher Mahlfeiern (TANZ 13; Tübingen: Francke, 1996), 229. However, his analysis goes much further than I am prepared to go in making the meal and subsequent symposium the focal point of the Communal Rule. His analysis of the Rule as a collection of statutes of one or more religious associations is illuminating, although he seems at times to read too much into the text of S. For instance, there is nothing in the text that suggests the communal meeting described in 1QS 6:8b–13a took place after a meal or in 1QS 7:10 that the offence of lying down to sleep during the meeting occurred in the context of a “Gelagesituation,” 233.
