Acts 15:24 (h.a/h.t.)

Acts 15:24 (traditional text)

οτι τινες εξ ημων εξελθοντες εταραξαν υμας
ΛΟΓοις   ανασκευαζοντες τας ψυχας   υΜΩΝ
ΛΕΓοντες περιτεμνεσθαι και τηρειν τον νοΜΟΝ
οις ου διεστειλαμεθα...

...that certain went from us did trouble you with
words,   subverting the souls   of you,

saying to be circumcised and to keep the law,
to whom we did give no charge,

Another Double HomoioArcton-Teleuton Haplography error, unfortunately complicated by the obvious unlucky subject matter. This caused additional editing activity as copyists/editors fretted over the "meaning" of a simple boo-boo.

In uncial script, E was written in a rounded form, and Omega was also very similar to Omicron.

The usual ancient editing crew bails out on the reading, conveniently eliminating another "Jewish" reference which no one wanted to be reminded of.

Westcott/Hort, Nestle, drop the line, UBS follows, and most 'modern' versions dump the line without notes. (Living Bible - nothing, Good News - zip, The Message - no mention).
