A Textual Commentary On Matthew 24:38

(a) Tischendorf”s fourth rule — that the reading should be preferred from which the others have sprung — is described as being (if taken in a wide sense) the principle of all rules. In support of this, reference is made to Griesbach’s Prolegomena. Its application will, however, depend very much on the subjective feeling of each one who uses it. Tischendorf gives as an illustration Matt. xxiv. 38, where the common reading is ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ταῖς πρὸ τοῦ κατακλυσμοῦ ; some MSS. insert εκειναις after ἡμέραις while others (L, one Lectionary, three Latin MSS., and Origen twice) omit ταῖς πρὸ, and this latter form of the text is followed by Tischendorf. He thinks it far more probable that the original reading was “days of the flood,” and that the others have arisen out of it. He considers that some copyists or critics thought that it was hardly correct to say “they were eating and drinking in the days of the flood,” and hence (he supposes) originated the reading “that were before the flood.” This might possibly be the source of this reading ; but is not the evidence too great in favour of the reading “that were before the flood,” for this consideration and this measure of evidence to suffice to overturn it ? The words ταῖς πρὸ might most easily be passed over by a transcriber ; and as to the citation of Origen, how often do we not find a quotation slightly abridged, when nothing in the argument turns on the omitted words ? As to the term “days of the flood,” being not strictly correct to express days that preceded the flood, the assertion seems to me to go rather too far ; the days preceding the flood, up to and including that on which the flood came, might be so called ; so that if this had been the original expression of the text, the idea of correcting it would hardly be sufficient to account for the introduction of the words ταῖς πρὸ, so as to make it “before the flood.”(Tregelles, An Account of the Printed Text of the Greek New Testament, p 124)
