Rev 12:5 [Textus Receptus]
καὶ ἔτεκεν υἱόν ἄρρενα, ὃς μέλλει ποιμαίνειν πάντα τὰ ἔθνη ἐν ῥάβδῳ σιδηρᾷ καὶ ἡρπάσθη τὸ τέκνον αὐτῆς πρὸς τὸν θεὸν καὶ τὸν θρόνον αὐτοῦ

A Textual Commentary On Rev 12:5

(a) MUTATIONS OF THE CONSONANTS – The use of σσ for ττ, described as mainly Ionic, is in the N. T. the only traditional spelling with most words, as περισσός, θάλασσα, γλῶσσα, τάσσω, etc. In the Comparative, the forms κρείσσων, ελάσσων are interchanged with κρείττων, ελάττων ; and in certain words derived from them the it has become established, as ἐλαττόω, ἐλαττονέω, ἥττημα , ἡττασθαι. The combination ρρ is exchanged with ρσ, e.g. θαρρέω and θαρσέω (see Wahl, clav. min.) . But instead of ἄρρην Lchm. has everywhere (even in Rev. xii. 5, 13) restored the form with ρσ [so Treg. ; and Tdf. also except in Rom. i. 27].
