NOTE ON J. A. EMERTON: LINES 25-6 OF THE MOABITE STONE AND A RECENTLY - DISCOVERED INSCRIPTION Based on a recently published fragment of an inscription which has been de fi ned as a Moabite royal inscription that accounts the subju- gation of the Ammonites, J. A. Emerton 1 reexamined the related pas- sage in ll. 25-6 of the Moabite stone, reviewing the diverse interpre- tations o ff ered in respect of the text in those lines, and speci fi cally to the words krty and hmkrtt . He found support in the new inscription, that refers to a mkrt in a context that indicates this feature to be a water installation, most probably “a reservoir or the like”, and con- cluded that this applies to both inscriptions. The two forms mkrt and hmkrtt are singular and plural respectively. There remained, however, the problem that the Moabite stone also speaks of an "“ w ˙ (ll. 9 and 23), which was convincingly shown to be a water reservoir.
