A Textual Commentary On Acts 4:29

(a) ASPIRATES – The use of an aspirate before a smooth breathing conflicts, indeed, with the general rules of orthography, which are observed also in the N. T., yet in several instances is pretty well established. Thus we have, e.g. ἔφιδε Acts iv. 29 [ἔπιδε Tdf.], ἀπίδω Phil. ii. 23, ἐφεῖδεν Luke i. 25 Tdf. [ed. 7], ἀφελπίζοντες vi. 35 Lchm., οὐχ Ἰουδαϊκῶς Gal. ii. 14 (Tdf. οὐχ’, as cod. A has, e.g. in οὐχ’ ὄψεσθε Luke xvii. 22) — to write it thus with the apostrophe was the almost universal usage, see Schneider on Plat. Rep. p. 455 ; Anecd. Bekk. p. 683 sq. On the other hand, in the MSS. We also find often οὐχ εὗρον (Exod. xvi. 27), οὐκ ἕνεκα in Hermas, etc. ; but see below p. 10. On the omission of as piration (οὐκ ἕστηκεν) see Tdf.’s note on John viii. 44. Further, ἐφ’ ἐλπίδι Acts ii. 26, οὐχ ἠγάπησαν Rev. xii. 11, οὐχ ἰδού Acts ii. 7, οὐχ ὀλίγος xix. 23 Lchm., cf. xii. 18 ; see Lachmann’s pref. p. 42. The aspiration ἑλπις occurs also in inscriptions, see Franz, Epigr. 111. It is possible that the retention of the digamma in single words (cf. the Lat. video) occasioned these irregularities, which occur elsewhere also, see Winer p. 45 (44). (Alexander Buttmann, A Grammar of the New Testament Greek, p. 7)
