Right now we are dealing with what did the text originally say, I am letting
the what it means slide until later.
I found my dead tree version of Tanakh, which has a list of variants, to see
what the critical apparatus would say. Yes, the apparatus lists all the tiqune
sopherim and what they were changed from. The exact words are given. There
is no question what the original words were.
But when I come to the first two chapters of Job, there is only a speculated
correction, with a range of possible "originals". There are no variant
readings from other MSS.
So what textual evidence do you have that these verses were changed?
What is the evidence from the DSS concerning the tiqune sopherim? Were any
of them found among the DSS?
