Sanderson, An Exodus Scroll, 41. 74 Problems frequently arise in this regard, however, on account of the fact that it is often difficult to determine the stage in the development of the text from which the variant text reading stems. Tov himself draws attention to this difficulty. See E. Tov, Textual Criticism, 350. Sanderson likewise makes explicit reference to the problem.
