Where is Matthew 17:21?


Matthew 17:20

ESV - 20 He said to them, "Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.

Some old Bible manuscripts mention verse 21 but many of the more authoritative sources don't (Codex Sinaiticus, Code Vaticanus etc.). The translators behind each Bible translation then will have to decide whether to:

a) include verse 21 i.e. KJV
b) mention verse 21 as a footnote i.e. NIV, ESV
c) exclude verse 21 i.e. MSG

Depending on the methodology its translators, you will get one of the above three options.
