Matt 1:14 Αχειμ Αχειμ

The insignificant spelling variation Αχιμ found in a minority of manuscripts (ℵ2 L M V Σ [Αχιν]) was retained by NA27 probably for purposes of orthographic standardization. Yet there is no need to standardize Αχειμ, a name that occurs only here and written as Αχειμ in the consensus of all Greek manuscripts, including ℵ* B C E K P U W Δ (Αχειν) Θ Π f1.13 33, etc. Therefore, Αχειμ is to be preferred. Cf. also the comment on Matt 1:13.
