This use, also found in the text of D at 11:54 and 13:24, has been the subject of remark since the time of Wellhausen, who suggested that an Aramaism was involved. In more recent discussion, notably by Black, Fitzmyer, and Wilcox, attention has been focused on establishing the necessary evidence on the Aramaic side, namely the existence of a verb with the two senses of "find" and "be able". It now seems beyond doubt that in Palestinian Aramaic of the New Testament period skh was in use in just this way.
