Abstract Little attention has been given to the use of the biblical Sinai pericope (Exod 19-Num 10) in 1QS to create the Qumran group's self-identity. This article studies how 1QS uses the Sinai pericope's presentations of divine presence and atonement to distinguish the Qumranite movement from the Judaisms around it. The group's covenant and cult, improved with respect to the corresponding Sinaitic categories, identified them as the true Israel while they awaited God's final coming.
