Hebrews 3:2-3

Context
3:2 who is faithful to the one who appointed him, as Moses was also in God’s 1  house. 2  3:3 For he has come to deserve greater glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house deserves greater honor than the house itself!

1 tn Grk “his”; in the translation the referent (God) has been specified for clarity.

2 tc ‡ The reading adopted by the translation follows a few early mss and some versions (Ì13,46vid B vgms co Ambr). The majority of mss (א A C D Ψ 0243 0278 33 1739 1881 Ï lat sy) insert “all” (“in all his house”), apparently in anticipation of Heb 3:5 which quotes directly from Num 12:7. On balance, the omission better explains the rise of ὅλῳ ({olw, “all”) than vice versa. NA27 puts ὅλῳ in brackets, indicating doubts as to its authenticity.
