Mar 2:21. Αἴρει τὸ πλήρωμα τὸ καινὸν τοῦ παλαιοῦ) This reading is a mean between extremes, brief, and likely to be genuine. The meaning is: the new piece put in to patch up the rent, takes away with it some of the old cloth.
 AΔ, later Syr., whom Tischend. follows, read αἴρει ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ τὸ πληρωμα. B reads τὸ πληρ. ἀφʼ εἁυτοῦ. L, whom Lachm. follows, has τὸ πλήρ. ἀπʼ αὐτοῦ. Dab Vulg. and Rec. Text have τὸ πλήρωμα (to which Rec. Text adds αὐτοῦ) τὸ καινὸν ἀπὸ (omitted in Rec. Text) τοῦ παλαίου-ED.
