And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, otherwise, the wine will burst the wineskins and the wine is ruined and so are the wineskins. Instead, new wine is put into fresh wineskins.” Bible other translations

“No one puts new wine.” See commentary on Matthew 9:17.

“wineskins.” A “bottle” or container made from animal skin. [For more on skin-bottles, which were usually made from the skins of goats, see commentary on 1 Sam. 10:3].

“so are the wineskins.” There is also significant textual evidence for the reading of this phrase as: “the wine is poured out and the skins are ruined.” The likely reason that the NA 28 goes with the reading in the REV is that it is the shorter reading. It is much more likely that the copyists added clarifying words to later manuscripts rather than leaving out the word “poured out” and switching the word order. Therefore, this shorter reading is likely the original.
