STRONGS NT 2982: λαμά

λαμά (R G (on the accent see Tdf. Proleg. 102)) in Matthew 27:46 and λαμμᾶ (R G) Mark 15:34 (the Hebrew word לָמָּה from Psalm 21:1 ()), why; in the former passage Lachmann reads λῆμα, in the latter λεμα, Tdf. λεμα in both, Tr WH λεμα in Matt. but λαμά in Mark; the form in or reproduces the Chaldean לְמָא or לְמָה; on the remarkable diversity of spelling in the manuscripts cf. Tdf. on each passage (WH on Matthew, the passage cited), and Fritzsche on Mark, p. 693.
