The Textus Receptus, following a few minuscules and patristic witnesses (489
Theodoret al), add humin; other witnesses (D F G K L PSI 181 326 917 920 it
d,g vg syrp,h
goth arm al) add nmiv. Both readings are explanatory glosses, introduced in
order to esta-
blish a personal reference of pasin to the Christians. The reading adopted
for the text is
strongly supported by p46 alef A B C P 082 33 88 104 424c 436 442 460 462
