§ The phrase υιε Δαυιδ... ελεησον (son of David... have mercy) in Mark 10.47 = Luke 18.38, or ελεησον... υιος Δαυιδ (have mercy... son of David) in Matthew 20.30, is repeated and transposed in Matthew 20.31 = Mark 10.48 = Luke 18.39; Matthew 9.27; 15.22. The phrase η πιστις σου σεσωκεν σε (your faith has saved you) in Mark 10.52 = Luke 18.42 is repeated and transposed in Matthew 9.22 = Mark 5.34 = Luke 8.48; Luke 7.50; 17.19.
