Luke 18:25 (King James Version)
For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
- a camel
- Some render a cable; but it may justly be doubted whether [kamelos
] ever was so translated
- before, for the word for a cable, as the scholiast on Aristophanes expressly affirms, is written [kamilos,] not with an "e" [eta], but with an "i" [iota] Some few MSS., it is true, have got the word [kamilos] into the text, but it is evidently an attempted improvement.
- Matthew 23:24
