Perhaps then you should look at someone else's work- for instance Fred
Cryer, who shows quite clearly that the division between the so called 1st
and 2nd temple periods so far as the hebrew of the hebrew bible is concerned
is impossible to maintain.  there is good reason to follow wellhausen in
this matter.  very good and compelling reasons, which still, even after
these many years, have not been addressed or disproven.
