Today I had a NIDNTT search window up. I had searched for ἐλεημοσύνη as the Greek Entry, and then set the Show: drop-down to Articles.

I selected the following from article and copied as Citation:

Matt. reports only Jesus’ criticism of the attempt to obtain public praise and acknowledgment in the giving of alms (Poor NT) (Matt. 6:1-4), but Lk. has the definite teaching: alms instead of ritual purity (Lk. 11:41, in an argument with the Pharisees), and lays down as a rule for the disciples and the church the giving away of one’s possessions to the poor (Lk. 12:33). In Acts Tabitha (Acts 9:36) and Cornelius (10:2) are singled out for their charity and as recipients of singular blessing.


The Citation looked like this:

“Preface,” NIDNTT, n.p.


The problem, of course, is that this text is not from the Preface, but from the article on "Mercy, Compassion."

I know you all are busy right now, so there's no hurry. For my purposes, copying as a User Tool link works fine (I'm pasting the quote into a User Tool), but I thought it should be reported.

Thanks for reporting this. It looks like a bug of some sort that only occurs when you switch to Show: Articles. Switching back to All Text shows a more accurate citation:

“Mercy, Compassion,” NIDNTT, 2:596.

(page numbers have been added and will be available in a free update in the not so distant future)

Thanks for addressing this. I should have thought of changing the Show status to see what happened. I'll keep that in mind for next time, until you have a change to get the bug fixed.
