George,

Luke 19:31:
"KAI EAN TIS hUMAS ERWTAi, 'DIA TI LUETE;' hOUTWS EREITE hOTI 'hO KURIOS 
AUTOU CREIAN ECEI.'"

Although, on the face of it, this is (gramatically) ambiguous,

(1) how common is it for the object of "ECW CREIAN" not to be explicit (as 
in your first alternative)?;

(2) in vv. 33 and 34 the phrase is used by the two disciples to the owners 
(hOI KURIOI AUTOU), which seems to make the first of your two alternatives 
unlikely, does it not?
