The Greek text of this manuscript is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type, Comfort ascribed it as proto-Alexandrian, though the extant portion is too fragmentary for certainty. It has not yet been placed in any of the Categories of New Testament manuscripts.
- 5:28: ακουσουσιν (shall hear (future tense)) becomes ακουσαντες (have heard (aorist tense, participle)).
