A Textual Commentary On Matthew 5:4

(a) But there may be express testimony which gives a determining value to conflicting evidence. Thus, in Matt. v. 4, 5, the order of the benedictions in most copies (as well as the common text) is, μακάριοι οι πενθούντες …. μακ. οι πραεις κτλ. But Origen (iv. 740) says, εννοιαν δε του τοιούτου λαμβάνω επιστήσας τη τάξει των εν τω κατα Ματθαιον μακαρισμων, εν οις μετα το. μακάριοι οι πτωχοι τω πνεύματι, οτι αυτων εστιν η βασιλεία των ουρανων, εξης γέγραπται το μακάριοι οι πραεις, οτι αυτοι κληρονομήσουσι την γην· τήρει γαρ εν τούτοις ότι πρώτον μεν των μακαριζομένων η βασιλεία έστι των ουρανων· δευτέρον δε κληρονομήσυσι την γην. Now though the only MSS. in favour of this reading are D, 33, (B C D are the only MSS. of the oldest class that contain this portion), it is supported by the order of the Eusebian Canons and Ammonian Sections,* and by the Old Latin in all copies (except Cod. Veronensis, and the revised Cod. Brixianus), by the Vulgate, and by the Curetonian Syriac. So that few as the MSS. are which contain it, this reading was once widely diffused, and it is maintained by the distinct testimony of Origen and Eusebius. This express testimony overbalances all that could be said in favour of the common order of these verses, as deduced from the other MSS. and versions.

* Ammonius seems, in the third century, to have divided the four Gospels into sections, placing opposite each other those which were parallel, so as to construct what is called a harmony. Eusebius so arranged these sections as to throw them all into ten tables, the first containing those portions common to all the Evangelists ; the next three those that were common to three of them ; the next five those that were common to two ; and the last comprising what was peculiar to each Gospel. These sections and canons often attest what passages were or were not read in the third century. In this place the order of the Sections and Canons as placed by Eusebius in the margin is κϛ/ι , κζ/ε (i. e. 26/x , 27/v) ; showing that the 26th section (under Canon X) was something peculiar to St. Matthew, namely, μακαριοι οι πραεις κτλ ; while the 27th section falling under Canon V, contained something com mon to Matthew and Luke. A reference to the table shows that it is the 48th section of St. Luke that answers to the 27th in St. Matthew ; the words in St. Luke being the latter part of vi. 21. Thus in St. Matthew, the clause, μακαριοι οι πενθουντες, οτι αυτοι παρακληθήσονται, answers to that in Luke, μακάριοι οι κλαίοντες νυν, οτι γελάσετε. Transcribers have confused the notes of the Canons as they stand in the margin of many MSS. ; but the table which makes the 27th section of St. Matthew answer to the 48th of St. Luke, corrects the confusion and supplies the ancient evidence.
