Chapter Summary

This chapter explains how to define the "literary nature" of textual differences. The quantitative criterion is always supplemented by qualitative judgment of different textual forms. The story of the taking of Jerusalem by David presents several difficulties as much as textual interpretation. The chapter outlines the main challenges of specific verses to put the alternative in its textual and narrative context. It then explains v. 8b placed in context to perceive that the textual difference implies about the narrative understanding of the story. MT and the LXX show two different textual forms of v. 8, each containing its coherence and its problems. The TM maintains the ambiguity in identifying the house and the people who get denied entry, while the LXX speaks explicitly of a Yahwistic temple in Jerusalem.
