I have a tally of the earliest provenances of Classical texts, of
Patristic writings, and of NT writings. I had hoped to have a list
for the same purpose of Hebrew texts. I find it interesting to
know that the great Qumran Isaiah Scroll compares better with the
Massora than the LXX but that wasn't what I asked. I wasn't asking
about the varieties of texts found but the provenance of them.
Surely the list knows.
