Matthew 12:47

Context
NETBible

1  Someone 2  told him, “Look, your mother and your brothers are standing outside wanting 3  to speak to you.”

NET © Notes

tc A few ancient mss and versions lack this verse (א* B L Γ pc ff1 k sys,c sa). The witness of א and B is especially strong, but internal considerations override this external evidence. Both v. 46 and 47 end with the word λαλῆσαι (“to speak”), so early scribes probably omitted the verse through homoioteleuton. The following verses make little sense without v. 47; its omission is too hard a reading. Thus v. 47 was most likely part of the original text.

tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

tn Grk “seeking.”
