-25 27,30 He ... Who by [the] Holy Spirit... in this city... servant... servant: It will be noticed that the critical text differs not a little from the Received, not merely in omitting ’God’ in ver. 24, and giving ’in this city’ in ver. 27, but yet more in the singular addition `by (the) Holy Spirit’ in ver. 25, given by אABE and other authorities. It is difficult to conceive the ordinary text deliberately changed into that ancient form with its unusual harshness; it is easy to understand that later copyists might soften the phrase. It is not often that the older witnesses give us greater copiousness; but here we have distinct instances of it. Further, in vers. 27 and 30, as in chap. 3:13,26, the true counterpart is `Servant’, and not ’Son,’ nor even ’Child’ here, answering to Isaiah 42:1; 52:13; as indeed the Authorized Version rightly translates in ver. 25. Only in the prayer Jesus is here carefully distinguished from David as His ’holy’ One. (Exp. of Acts, p.47)
