great: μεγάλω א A B, six cursives, and almost all the ancient versions instead of πόλλῳ, as in most copies followed by the Text. Rec.... This appears to be the sense if we take into account the critical reading μεγάλω in what follows. Were the Received Text justified which gives πόλλῳ ’much’, this rendering could hardly stand; for the more natural force would then be ’in a little while’, distinguished from ’much time’. (Exp. of Acts, p.375-6)
