Back on the original topic (sorry): Arguably the "within you" translation is better than "within your midst". The Greek is ἐντὸς ὑμῶν (entos hymôn). Entos is normally an adverb, but it's functioning as a preposition here. Hymôn is "you" (pl.) in the genitive case.

All the standard Greek lexicons I looked at, with one exception, give the meaning as "within". Here's an example from Mounce's Greek dictionary:

    ἐντός  entos  
    improper prep., gen., inside, within, Lk. 17:21

The one exception is the UBS lexicon, and I think they're reading this passage back into it.

Now if you want to argue that "within" a plural "you" is the same as "in the midst of," go ahead, but realize that you're doing some exegeting along with your translating.

So, I guess it's kind of both then.

Inspired by Dr Doom, perhaps.
