Spelling variations in original Hebrew Torah?


Rabbi Ari Shvat

Tishrei 18, 5775
If there are few spelling variations in the Torah and God dictated the Torah to Moses, then were the spelling variations also dictated to Moses?
No, they are those few, but inevitable, mistakes, stemming from 3,300 years of human hand-copying of the text myriads of times in every Jewish community in the world.
