Matt 28:17 some or all doubted?

"KAI IDONTES AUTON PROSEKUNHSAN, hOI DE EDISTASAN."

ought the hOI DE in Matt 28:17 be translated 'some', or does it refer
collectively to the whole group?
I can find no parallel instance where such a construction has been
translated 'some'.
Most translations are otherwise quite consistent: they use 'some'  to
translate a hOI MEN, ...., hOI DE phrase or a TINES + Genitive Plural,
but never a hOI DE phrase by itself.
