The inferences are clear: (1) a truly eclectic text of Mark would differ with WH and GNT4 on grounds of the writer's style at many points of variation; (2) it cannot be taken for granted that the GNT4 editors have properly considered the writer's style at points of variation elsewhere in the New Testament text.

Despite the contextual case for i\y\ac\iEvoiq, the intrinsic support which fiyaKTiixevoK; enjoys as part of a chain of catchwords which characterize an aspect of the writer's style is more conclusive, and added support for f\YOC7rnnevoi<; is found in the transcriptional probability that flYioccnevoK; was an alteration made to harmonize with 1 Cor.
