βρῶμα in MGr = ";rubbish, stench, dirt"; (Thumb, Handb.). Pallis, in his Notes, p. 14, proposes to recognize this word—which would be a variant of βρῶμος , whence we get bromine—in Mark 7:19. His rendering, ";which thing (or circumstance) clears away all impurities,"; ignores the true reading καθαρίζων : it would be better to take the latter as agreeing with ἀφεδρῶνα , by the lapse of concord so common in Rev (Proleg. p. 9). But the RV supplies a much more satisfactory sense, though the new proposal is ingenious.
