NASH PAPYRUS, papyrus named after the buyer, W. L. Nash, now in the Cambridge University Library (Or. 233; facsimile in Albright, p. 11). The papyrus contains the Decalogue (Ex. 20:2-17) and the Shema (Dt. 6:1-5) in Hebrew. Its date is debated. While Albright dates it in the second century B.C., most Old Testament scholars place it in the first century before or after Christ. It is to be interpreted not as a papyrus but as a phylactery.
