WK Translation Notes

a
and... the which: there is no need for the awkwardness of "the life, the eternal life" in 2, any more than for "that eternal life" in the Authorized Version. Nor should the verse open with "For," but "And." (Bible Treasury 14:110)
report: Why "declare" [in the RV] in 1:2 and again in 3? The Revisers had already given like the Authorized Version "declared" to ἐξηγ. in John 1:18. They are quite right in discriminating ἀμαγγ- from ἀγγ. But why not adhere to its strict sense "report"? They correctly cleave to "message" for the uncompounded substantive in 5.—"Report" for ἀπαγγ. in 2,3 is just as suitable as in its ordinary usage. The Revisers have shown undue deference to the Authorized Version in contenting themselves from the beginning of the New Testament with "tell" or "show," "bring word" or "report" being better in the first occurrence (Matt. 2:8). There are cases where the context makes "report" harsh; but here, so far is this from being so, that no word appears so appropriate to my mind. It admirably suits the peculiar relation of the apostle to Christ on the one hand and to the saints addressed on the other. It imports the authority that sent the message, or at least the source whence it was brought. (Bible Treasury 15:95)
eternal life: Again, is it not peculiar to give here only "the life, the eternal life?" Though the precisely same structure occurs in 2:15 they are content with "the life eternal". One need not adduce other phrases to show how little it was called for. (Bible Treasury 15:95)
