Compare Genesis 10:3:...
"The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, *Riphath and Togarma."
with 1 Chronicles 1:6 (NAS):
"The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, *Diphath and Togarma."
The above translations of these passages reflect the majority of Hebrew manuscripts, though some Hebrew manuscripts as well as LXX and the Vulgate have "" for 1 Chron 1:6..
How did the Hebrews, if they were such good record-keepers, reconcile this difference?
Is it not generally the case that, if something occurs in the majority of manuscripts, it's generally reliable? Or, are there cases where this has proved not to be true?
If it can't e reconciled, what do we as believers do with this difference?
