Abstract The Greek text of Mark 1,40-45 contains a relatively high number of textual variants. The variants which deserve attention are the following: in v. 40, the variation ἐρωτῶν/παρακαλῶν, the presence or absence of καὶ γονυπετῶν and κύριε; in v. 41, the variations ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῆς/καί, and ὀργισθείς/σπλαγχνισθείς, the placing of αὐτοῦ before and/or after ἥψατο; in v. 42, the presence or absence of εἰπόντος αὐτοῦ, the presence or absence of the two last words of the verse as well as that of v. 43 in its entirety; in v. 44, the presence or absence of μηδέν; in v. 45, the presence or absence of πολλά and αὐτόν. This study demonstrates that there are almost three successive editions of the Greek text. The first is represented by the Western Text (D), where the entire episode is pervaded with Jesus’ feeling of anger. The second is that of W where the episode is marked by Jesus’ feeling of pity. The following editions (B and the others with minor variations) present the episode in a rather mixed form which mingles pity and anger.
