More information on the Samaritan Pentateuch from David Glatt-Gilad, in his article “Reimagining the Israelite-Edomite Encounter“.

For an introduction to the Samaritan Pentateuch, see Robert T. Anderson and Terry Giles, The Samaritan Pentateuch: An Introduction to Its Origin, History, and Significance for Biblical Studies (Atlanta: SBL, 2012). For more examples of this exegetical technique in the Samaritan Pentateuch, see J. H. Tigay, “Conflation as a Redactional Technique,” in Empirical Models for Biblical Criticism (ed. J. H. Tigay; Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1985), pp. 53–95. For an edition of the SP, see Abraham Tal and Moses Florentine, The Five Books of the Torah: Samaritan Text and Masoretic Text (Tel Aviv University Press, 2010). For an English translation of the SP, with a consciously Samaritan flavor, see: Benyamim Tsedaka (translator and editor) and Sharon Sullivan (co-editor), The Israelite Samaritan Version of the Torah: First English Translation Compared with the Masoretic Version (Eerdmans, 2013).
