Ummmmm, so what do the autographs of the Greek say, using Majority Text Principle?

Manuscripts, not autographs. All the autographs are, so far as we known, long gone. Some Greek verb forms don't really have close correspondence with a particular English form. The key verb here is a subjunctive aorist, and we don't have an aorist--and neither does Latin. That the negative is μὴ is of some significance as well--but I will want to consult grammars before commenting further. The verb itself means literally to bear or cary inward, and the prepositional prefix indicating inward appears two words later as a free-standing prefix, so there is a real emphasis on the inward aspect. I'll try to check the best witness into the Hebrew tomorrow.
