sqlite 3.34 CL editing

I've recently installed the sqlite 3.34 toolbox for Mac. After moving the 3 executables to my ~/bin directory (which is in my $PATH), and having to rename 'sqlite3' to 'sqlite' so as not to run the system file of the same name (which can't be deleted or renamed), I finally got it working on a recent database.

Previously I could use Alt-Left Arrow or Alt-Right Arrow to quickly move to the previous/next word when editing a command line in Terminal. Now this does not work. Instead I get 'b' or 'f'.

This is frustrating and wondering if it can be fixed or is there anything I can do to achieve that? My shell is bash and I'm running on High Sierra 10.13.6.

Apologies. Spoke too soon. sqlite CL 3.34 does NOT allow me to edit a command line using Alt-left arrow or Alt-right arrow..
