Interpreters have considered the phrase ἀνὰ μέσον του̑ ἀδελφου̑ αὐτου̑ (1 Cor. 6:5) to be an ellipse or abbreviation. The several parallels that have been adduced for this conclusion are analyzed, with the result that none may continue to be regarded as a genuine parallel. In addition, patristic writers and the versions show various attempts to resolve the difficulty, which supports the conclusion that the Greek text, as it stands, is impossible. Several conjectures are proposed, any of which may have been lost early in the transmission history of the text by homoioteleuton.
