Abstract The words "recension" and "revision" are use inconsistently when applied to the ancient Greek versions. In addition, it is quite apparent there are occasions that scholars are working with entirely different presuppositions when discussion revisions and recensions in the Greek witnesses, which only serves to exacerbate the problem. This issue is particularly noticeable in discussions related to Lucian and kaige. Thus, the aim of this article is to articluate the problem of terminology and provide the basis for a stricter use of these terms for the understanding and analysis of the Greek witnesses of the Jewish Scriptures. As part of the discussion of Lucian, the work of Bernard Taylor, who argued that Lucian cannot be equal to the OG in the kaige section of Reigns, is highlighted.
