And it was told him by certain, which said
The phrase, "which said", is omitted in the Vulgate Latin version, and in Beza's most ancient copy. The Syriac, Arabic, and Ethiopic versions only read, "and they said unto him"; and the Persic version renders it, "a certain person said"; some one person, as in ( Matthew 12:47 )
thy mother, and thy brethren, stand without, desiring to see thee;
and to speak with thee, as in ( Matthew 12:47 ) . (See Gill on Matthew 12:47).
