Verse 31. "His brethren and his mother" - Or rather, his mother and his brethren. This is the arrangement of the best and most ancient MSS.; and this clause, kai al adelfai sou, and thy sisters, ver. 32, should be ADDED, on the authority of ADEFGMSUV, fifty-five others, some editions, the margin of the later Syriac, Slavonic, Gothic, and all the Itala except four. Griesbach has received this reading into the text.
"Calling him." - This clause is wanting in one copy of the Itala. The Codex Alexandrinus has zhtountev auton, seeking him.
Verse 33. "Who is my mother?" - See on Matt. xii. 46-50.
