Winers Grammar, § 55, 6; (Buttmann, § 149, 13 b.)): μήτε ... μήτε, neither ... nor, Luke 7:33 (T μή ... μηδέ); (five times); Acts 23:12, 21; Acts 27:20; Hebrews 7:3; (but in Ephesians 4:27 for μή ... μήτε we must with L T Tr WH substitute μή ... μηδέ). μή ... μήτε ... μήτε, Matthew 5:34-36 (four times); 1 Timothy 1:7; James 5:12; Revelation 7:3; ἵνα μή ... μήτε ... μήτε, Revelation 7:1; μηδέ ... μήτε ... μήτε, 2 Thessalonians 2:2 L T Tr WH; μή εἶναι ἀνάστασιν, μηδέ ἄγγελον (for that is something other than ἀνάστασις), μήτε πνεῦμα (because angels belong to the genus πνεύματα), Acts 23:8 R G; cf.
