>>Dear Greekers, Denny Diehl here
with a question concerning Jesus' quote of Hosea 6:7
recorded in Mt 9:13 and Mt 12:7.
In Hosea 6:7 the comparison reads:
"ELEOS QELW H QUSIAN"
which Jesus quotes as:
"ELEOS QELW KAI OU QUSIAN"<<
I agree with the comments that Matthew quoted the Hebrew. As for the greek
copies, my Brenton's (Hos 6:6) reads as you quote it. However, my online
Rahlf's reads exactly with Mat 9:13 and 12:7:
ELEOS QELW KAI OU QUSIAN
Does my online Rahlf's read in harmony with the printed version? (I don't
have Rahlf's here at home). If not, I need to report this to the publishers
to get it corrected.
Thanks for verifying.
