Abstract Les auteurs des pesharim de Qumran pratiquaient l'interprétation allegorique ou symbolique des prophéties bibliques et voyaient en elles des allusions aux événements de leur propre génération, même quand la Bible hebraïque renvoit aux réalisations précédentes des mêmes prophéties. Cette méthode exégétique est illustrée par trois exemples: l'interprétation de 1 Samuel 2:35 et Ezéchiel 44:15 dans le Document de Damas III-IV, le pesher sur la malédiction de Josué (Josué 6:26) dans 4Q379 22 ii//4Q175 21-30, et l'interprétation de Jérémie 25:11 et 29:10 dans Daniel 9.

The authors of the Pesharim from Qumran interpreted biblical prophecies in symbolic and allegoric manner. They read into these prophecies allusions to events of their own times. This type of actualization was applied even to prophecies which were said in the Hebrew Bible to have been fulfilled in the past. This exegetical method, which assumes that a prophecy may be fulfilled more than once, is illustrated by three examples: the interpretation of 1 Samuel 2:35 and Ezekiel 44:15 by the Damascus Document III-IV, the pesher of the curse uttered by Joshua against Jericho (Joshua 6:26) as interpreted by 4Q379 22 ii//4Q175 21-30, and the interpretation of Jeremiah 25:11 et 29:10 by Daniel 9.
