Abstract This article examines the treatment of dual incipits in the Pentateuch by various representatives of medieval Jewish exegesis. Were dual openings identified as such? What explanations did those exegetes offer for dual formulae? The article contrasts the approach of medieval exegetes with contemporary scholarship, focusing on four instances of dual incipit in the Pentateuch: Exod 19:1–2; 35:1–5; Lev 16:1–2 and 23:1–4.
