The only extra-biblical pre-Mishnaic texts I can think of are (1) Epigraphy,
(2) Dead Sea Scrolls,  (3) Ben Sira, and (4) the Samaritan Pentateuch.

For (1), see most recently S. Gogel (Scholars) for grammar, texts, and
For (2), Garcia Martinez and Tigchelaar's (Brill/Eerdmans) The Dead Sea
Scrolls Study Edition is most accessible.
For (3), Beentjes' (Brill) The Book of Ben Sira in Hebrew is most accurate.

Electronically, (1) and (2) are available for Accordance; (2) are available
from Brill.
