The edition of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) originally appeared in fascicles which were corrected in the final printing which carried the date 1967-1977.

In our analysis of the witnesses of the biblical text no exception is made in this regard for Hi, because that text, like all other texts, may have been corrupted in the course of the scribal transmission. It is not easy to provide convincing proof of such errors in ill at this early stage of the discussion in this monograph, but it nevertheless is necessary to provide some examples.
