Rec. of the Greek. is greater than the temple. 586586 Matt. xii. 7.If ye had known this:587587 Is it possible that the Arabic word after known is not meant simply to introduce the quotation, but is to be taken in the adverbial sense, how representing the Syriac what that is? I love mercy,  not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned588588 See § 10, 13, note. those on whom is no blame. 589589 Matt. xii. 8.The  Lord of the sabbath is the Son of man. 590590 Mark iii. 21.And his relatives heard, and went out to take him, and said, He hath gone out of his mind.
