Abstract Stemmatological analysis of the text of Targum Samuel reveals six major text families. This paper examines seven related manuscripts belonging to one of these families, which I call the Mixed Western group. I identify and describe two tendencies that appear in the texts of these manuscripts: (1) the amplification of the text by the introduction of conventional readings from elsewhere in the Targum; and, (2) the revision of the text to bring it into closer conformity to the underlying Hebrew text. I conclude with some observations concerning the transmission of the Targum in the West.
