In Columns 26, 35 (twice), 36, 38, 41, 45, 46 (twice), 48, and 53. As in the case of the “ankh” sign, the placement of the present sign appears also to he in the right margin, with reference to the text at the left. The sign which is at Line 6 from the bottom in the margin between Columns 45 and 46 constitutes the one possible exception to this. It is so close to the end of the line in Column 45 that it can be interpreted as positioned in the left margin and as referring to the text at its right. In the Habakkuk Commentary (1QpHab) a similar but smaller mark occurs frequently, but its position is regularly at the end of a line which does not reach the margin, and it may he omitted from the present consideration.

In addition to the above signs, there are numerous short horizontal lines, some with a slight downward band on the left, which are usually found on the right edge of the columns, and appear to be used to set off passages of a few lines each. These are found in columns 7, 8, 10, 11, 16, 19, 23, 24, 34, 36, 37, 38, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 48, 50, 51, 52, 53, and 54.
