The most blatant example are the listings on Ezra 2 and Nehemiah 7 of the family units of the returning exiles. Fourteen of the 33 units appearing disagree as can be seen by reading down the lists and comparing the numbers. The totals given in those chapters are mistaken as well, as adding the congregations together will show you. (Original author unknown)
