Deuteronomy, P. Fuad 266 (Rahlfs 848), the Armenian version, Origen, Justin
Martyr and some late minuscules (such as 106 [16th century]). Minuscule 58
(12th century) reads hUIOUS. There are a host of late minuscules that contain
some form of "sons of Israel." <<

I should point out that 848 cuts off after hUIWN, so the reading could have
been "sons of Israel," but "angels of God" is not supported by this very
important witness.
