NET © Notes

tc ‡ Before οὐκ (ouk, “[am I] not”) a number of significant witnesses read (h, “or”; e.g., א C W 085 Ë1,13 33 and most others).

Thus the shorter reading is most likely original. NA27 includes the word in brackets, indicating doubts as to its authenticity.

tn Grk “Is your eye evil because I am good?”
