The textual Commentary section of Textual Variants for the Old Testament it appears to be limited to a single Lexham resource, for the Deuterocanon it appears to be empty. Yet many commentaries and commentary series have sections dedicated to textual variants. I find 53 such commentaries with a simple search for textual notes as a heading. Please add a section/label tag that allows textual notes to be separately searched so they may be included in the Textual Variants Guide. This should include at least much of the following commentary series:

  • Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (heading "Textual Notes")
  • International Critical Commentary  (heading "Textual Notes")
  • Anchor Yale Bible Commentary  (heading "Textual Notes" or some volumes simply "Notes")
  • Cambridge Greek Testament for Schools and Colleges ((heading "Textual Notes")
  • The New International Greek Testament Commentary (heading "Textual Notes")
  • Social-Science Commentary (heading "Textual Notes")
  • Word Biblical Commentary (heading "Textual Notes")

It seems to me that there is sufficient additional material to fill in the weakest parts of the Textual Commentary section.
