You will notice that the NA27 reading is KAI TOUS
PROSKUNOUNTAS AUTON... The apparatus says that the
25th edition left it out because of original aleph,
original D, ff2 (j). However, the weight in the other
direction convinced them to replace it in the 27th
edition. That being papyri 66 and 75, secondary
aleph, A, B, C, D1, L, W, theta, psi, 086, families 1
& 13, 33, Majority, latin, and syriac.
I think that weight is pretty good. You might check
out Metzger's _Textual Commentary_ and see what rating
it was given. I would bet it was high.
