The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleMark 9:16
And he asked the Scribes…
The Vulgate Latin renders
it, "he asked them"; and the Ethiopic version, he said unto them;
meaning either that he asked the disciples when he came to them, or
else the people that ran to salute him; but the Syriac, Arabic, and
Persic versions read, "the Scribes"; seeing them about his
disciples, in close debate with them, and running hard upon them, he
what question ye with them?
what is it ye seek and require of them?
what is your dispute with them? what is your debate about? The
Vulgate Latin version reads, "what question ye among you?" among
themselves, and one another; and so Beza's most ancient copy.
