In geographical listings a scribal tradition is noted, which shows these records to be governed by persistent patterned structures. This is unequivocally demonstrated in the town list of Simeon by its representation in four variants. The key is the interrelationship of the parallel lists with their conformities and divergencies, which are due to changes of historical circumstances. The scribal technique noted is the strictly conserved structure of the primary formulation, with the alteration following a particular rule. Wherever required certain toponyms are added and introduced into the primary list, or deleted, and at times the additions are substituted for omitted names. Otherwise the basic frame remains unchanged. This procedure attests to the existence and preeminent standing of formalized normative records, which constitute fundamental binding literary frameworks. Together with other patterned, formalized concepts and formulations employed in biblical historiography, this phenomenon indicates the extensive chronological dimension of the literary process.
