The Hebrew Bible: A Critical Edition — 1 Kings 

Jan Joosten, Jean Koulagna, Matthieur Richelle, Bonifatia Gesche

In the early 2000s, Ron Hendel of UCLA Berkeley launched a project aimed at producing a critical edition of the text of the Hebrew Bible. The HBCE (Hebrew Bible: A Critical Edition) attempts to reconstruct, on the basis of all the available witnesses, the earliest attainable text. A similar approach has been common in editions of classical texts and of the New Testament, but is not usually applied to the Hebrew Bible.
