I just wanted to report that the hot links to MSS in the Metzger commentary no longer work (nothing shows up in instant details)....Scripture links appear to be OK....I was looking at Matthew 1:7...they do not work on my PC or MAC..I copied part of this below







1.7–8  ∆Asa¿f, ∆Asa¿f {B}


It is clear that the name “Asaph” is the earliest form of text preserved in the manuscripts, for the agreement of Alexandrian (å B) and other witnesses (Ï1 Ï13 700 1071) with Eastern versions (cop arm eth geo) and representatives of the Western text (Old Latin mss. and D in Luke [D is lacking for this part of Matthew]) makes a strong combination. Furthermore, the tendency of scribes, observing that the name of the psalmist Asaph (cf. the titles of Pss 50 and 73 to 83) was confused with that of Asa the king of Judah (1Kgs 15.9ff.), would have been to correct the error, thus accounting for the prevalence of ∆Asa¿ in the later Ecclesiastical text and its inclusion in the Textus Receptus.1
