This negative of a well-warranted word is said by Grimm to exist neither in profane authors nor in LXX. Its appearance, therefore, at once in Mark and in Paul is—valeat quantum—support for the inference that a genuine Logion about a ";house not made with hands"; underlies the perversion of Mark 14:58, and is quoted by Paul (and Hebrews 9:11; Hebrews 9:24) : it would be probably a coinage for the occasion in the earliest source.
