[holy] men: The MSS. are here very confused, both in order which is of less importance, and in words added or omitted. Yet all the uncials omit the article before ἄνθρωποι (men) as the best do ἄγιοι (holy). (Epist. of Peter, Part 2, p.113)
[holy] men: There is no doubt a serious conflict of readings: ἄγιοι (Text. Rc. Οἰ ἄ.) instead of ἀπὸ has א K L etc., ἄγιοι τοῦ A. ἀπὸ θ. ἄγιοι C. etc. But the critics generally prefer the text of B and several cursives supported by the Bodleian Syr. and the Coptic, which omit ἄγιοι.
