New International Version
A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest.
King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation
And there was also a strife among them which of them should be held to be [the] greatest.
World English Bible
There arose also a contention among them, which of them was considered to be greatest.
Young's Literal Translation
And there happened also a strife among them -- who of them is accounted to be greater.
Luke 22:24 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
There was also a strife among them - There are two different instances of this sort of contention or strife mentioned by the evangelists, each of which was accompanied with very different circumstances; one by Matthew, in Matthew 18:1, etc., by Mark, Mark 9:33, etc.; and by Luke, in Luke 9:46, etc. That contention cannot have been the same with this which is mentioned here.

See Bp. Pearce.

But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.
They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.
