      This is interesting. I was aware that the order of Jeremiah was different in the Greek translation than in the Hebrew. Similar
      rearrangements of Ezra-Nehemiah are found in 1 Esdras.

      As many know, a debate rages over the techniques available to editors in ancient times. Critics have proposed solutions ranging from
      something very much like modern "cut and paste" editing (where texts are laid out, key texts marked in some way, and then recombined
      into a new document) to virtually no editing of physical texts at all (more like a fluid oral tradition rearranged from memory).
      Each end of the editorial solution spectrum has its own unique evidence for and against.

      Would you be able to supply me (read: "us") with a short bibliography of works that deal with the editorial techniques used to
      arrange (or rearrange) these texts?

      It would be greatly appreciated!

      <<The LXX version of Proverbs is similar to the situation in Jeremiah. There are substantial differences in the order of largely
      the same material. In Proverbs the material rearranges and has some textual additions after chapter 22.

      See the chart and discussion on pages 123-127 of: Washington, Harold C. Wealth and poverty in the Instruction of Amenemope and the
      Hebrew Proverbs. Atlanta: Scholars Press, 1994.>>
