Variant identical with actual name, page should be removed.

RFS disagrees, since there is a debate over whether the manuscript and editions are wrong to spell it as RAMATH, instead of KJV RAMAH. Skousen argues for the latter KJV spelling at ATV 2:758-759, and PYH and JG may agree with him. Thus, we should list the citations and evidence here as we do for other variants, except that here we will be concerned with Skousen's arguments in favor of the KJV Isaiah text and transliteration. RFS argues that RAMATH has an archaic ending which might be expected on the Brass Plates, and that there are many other examples of this phenomenon in the HEBREW text.
