If textual updating is not inspired by God, one is faced with the following questions:
By this reasoning, our Old Testament should remove these non-inspired additions even though these redactions may be
true and accurate.
2. What if some textual updates are not really textual updates at all but instances where God inspired the biblical
writer to use the correct name at a time before its normal usage (i.e. Gen 14:14 use of
Dan before its historical time)?
The biblical author faces the problem that the readers of his period would not understand him.
