I've deleted a stray note which read "21388 verses". This may well be correct, but as it stood was not integrated with the text. Also (this is just my suspicion) since the editions are based on multiple mss, all of them with slight differences, the article's current round estimate ("more than 21,000 verses") may in a sense be more correct than any specific number.
