Abstract According to the Torah Model of the Hebrew canon, some texts were added at the seams of the canon blocks in order to bind the Prophets and the Ketuvim to the Torah. In this article, several weaknesses are shown in this model. The idea of added texts such as Dtn 34, Mal 3,22–24 (Torah of Moses) and Psalm 1 (Torah) presupposes an orchestrated intervention, but these texts are dated to different times. The Psalter appears at the beginning of the Ketuvim only in manuscripts in which the Megillot are grouped together, and this liturgical order did not originate until the Middle Ages.
