greek syntax principle 17

The plural παντες is generally anarthrous when the noun it modifies is implied but not present.

παντα δι αυτου εγενετο και χωρις αυτου εγενετο ουδε εν ο γεγονεν. (John 1:3)

ουτος ηλθεν εις μαρτυριαν ινα μαρτυρηση περι του φωτος ινα παντες πιστευσωσιν δι αυτου. (John 1:7)
