Abstract This article studies the specific nature of the arguments used in textual criticism. Most textcritical arguments may be met by contrary arguments. This is so because textual differences usually may be explained in two opposite directions. This is why textual criticism consists of comparing the respective weight of arguments. Therefore the presentation of one argument alone is not sufficient. This method is illustrated by three textual differences, discussed in present day research (I Reg 11f.; 14; I Reg 12,31 with II Reg 17,29.32; II Reg 23,13), and by a fourth one which, astonishingly, is not controversial although it should be (Jer 31,33). It exemplifies another pitfall which may occur in textual criticism: a smoothly running text may nevertheless hide a textual difference which risks being overlooked.
