Matthew 27:47

Context
27:47 When 1  some of the bystanders heard it, they said, “This man is calling for Elijah.”

Matthew 27:49

Context
27:49 But the rest said, “Leave him alone! Let’s see if Elijah will come to save him.” 2 

1 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

2 tc Early and important mss (א B C L Γ pc) have another sentence at the end of this verse: “And another [soldier] took a spear and pierced him in the side, and water and blood flowed out.” This comment finds such a strong parallel in John 19:34 that it was undoubtedly lifted from the Fourth Gospel by early, well-meaning scribes and inserted into Matt 27:49. Consequently, even though the support for the shorter reading (A D W Θ Ë1,13 33 Ï lat sy sa bo) is not nearly as impressive, internal considerations on its behalf are compelling.
