Lit and He already was not far from
Other mss read and let my servant be cured
Lit under me
Or the bier
Or awe
Or come to help
Lit cleansed
Or who have glorious robes
Lit messenger before Your face
Other mss read women is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist
Lit they justified God
Or wisdom is declared right
Her love shows that she has been forgiven
