Abstract Ever since Tischendorf, the majority of text-critics and exegetes have regarded omission of ἡμᾶς at Rev 5,9 as part of the initial text. The sole support for this reading is furnished by Codex Alexandrinus. The present article argues that, conversely, it is in fact the longer reading, ἠγόρασας ἡμᾶς τῷ θεῷ, attested in the majority of manuscripts, that is to be preferred and the omission in Alexandrinus is more likely to have originated by assimilation to the context or as a mere scribal error.
