Dear Jonathan,
What do you do with Gen. 36 31,  "And these are the kings that reigned
in Edom before there reigned a king of/over Israel"? Even Rashi
attributed this king-list to the time of King Jehoshafat, leading Ibn
Ezra to proclaim that his book should be burned. What do you do with all
the other verses indicating late authorship of the Pentateuch?
