It is hard for me to make sense out of Acts 5:29
according to D (original hand). The clause order seems
to put the wrong words in the wrong mouth.
The original hand of D inverts the clause order of
Acts 5:29 (not in NA27) so that: PEIQARCEIN DE QEO
MALLON H ANQRWPOIS appears first, before Peter starts
to speak. This puts PEIQARCEIN DE QEO MALLON H
ANQRWPOIS (and/but to obey God rather than men) in
the mouth of the [High] Priest which seems kind of
Following the punctuation of Ropes who places the
period after ANQRWPOIS, the whole verse reads:
PEIQARCEIN DE QEO MALLON H ANQRWPOIS. O DE PETROS
EIPEN PROS AUTOUS . . .
Is there some other way of dealing with this reading?
Can the clause PEIQARCEIN DE QEO MALLON H ANQRWPOIS be
construed as part of the following speech of Peter
when the words are in this order?
