Unto Bethphage and Bethany (ei Bhqpagh kai Bhqania). Both indeclinable forms of the Hebrew or Aramaic names. In Mark 11:1 "Bethany" is inflected regularly, which see. Of Olives (Elaiwn). As in Mark 11:1 ; Matthew 21:1 , though some editors take it to be, not the genitive plural of elaia (olive tree), but the name of the place Olivet. In the Greek it is just a matter of accent (circumflex or acute) Olivet is correct in Acts 1:12 . See on "Mt 21:1"; see also "Mr 11:1" for details.
