In studying the text of Samuel/Kings and some other O.T. portions the text critic can make use of the text of Chronicles as a witness to basically the same text. In studying the text of Chronicles, however, one should be very cautious in emending the text on the basis of these O.T. books and portions which were used by the Chronicler. The task of the text critic of Chronicles is not to restore the original text of the source the Chronicler used but the original text of the book of Chronicles itself, including erroneous deviations from the source taken over by the Chronicler from his or introduced by himself. The only exceptions are those cases where the Chronicler erroneously wrote something different from what he himself must have meant to write.
