12: η και εαν αιτηση ωον μη επιδωσει αυτω σκορπιον— edit Textus Receptus
12: Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?— edit KJV text
12: Or if he shall ask an egg, will he reach him a scorpion?— edit Douay text



See Mt 7:7ff

A scorpion. See "Lk 10:19".

Dr. Thomson (The Land and the Book, vol. i. p. 379) says:

"There is no imaginable likeness between an egg and the ordinary black scorpion of this country, neither in colour nor size, nor, when the tail is extended, in shape; but old writers speak of a white scorpion, and such a one, with the tail folded up, as in specimens of fossil trilobites, would not look unlike a small egg. Perhaps the contrast, however, refers only to the different properties of the egg and the scorpion, which is sufficiently emphatic."

Pliny (N. H., xi. 25) says that in Judea the scorpions are about the size of an egg, and not unlike one in shape.

  • {3} "offer" or, "give"
