 “Also for the sins of the whole world.” The translators added the three words “the sins of” without warrant.

God has been propitiated, vindicated, yea glorified in spite of all sin. Leviticus 16:1516 gives this in type, while 1 John 2:20-22 present substitution for sins of His people (1 Peter 2:24).

WK Translation Notes

a
[whole verse]: [See note to 1 John 2:1]
for ^: It is not correct to say that the propitiation of Jesus is here stated to be for the sins of the whole world. The English version says so, I know, but it is by inserting words which are better left out. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world. There is provision for it to the uttermost; but Scripture never speaks of the sins being borne away, save of believers. And it is to me as plain as possible that this very passage discriminates between "us" and "the world," even as to expiation; while advocacy with the Father is in no way connected with the world, but with the family of God. (Christian Annotator 2:273)
for ^: It is not said "for (the sins of) the whole world." There the translators were rash. (The Revisers give the difference correctly.) There is the danger of adding to Scripture, and the duty of believing Scripture only. Man's addition makes the difficulty; adhering to God's word solves it, while it says enough to proclaim divine mercy to the whole world. (Exp. of Epist. of John, p.65-66)
for ^: It cannot be urged too plainly or often that "the sins of" is an interpolation, not only uncalled for, but an addition which goes beyond the truth and is therefore false, as all exaggerations must be. (Bible Treasury N2:303)
for ^: Do you observe that certain words, printed in the italics of the Authorized Version, are here left out? The reason is, because they ought never to have been in. It is no pleasure to make such a remark on the common English Version. They are the words of one who values as a whole the plain English Bible beyond any other version in general use. But let God be true Who did not write those words. (Bible Treasury N3:248)
for ^: I leave out "the sins of." It is clear enough that they ought never to have been inserted in the common English Bible. Not only are they not required for the sense, as words generally are, but they injure the sense, and really insinuate erroneous doctrine. If the sins of the whole world were met by the propitiation of Christ, the whole world would be saved. No such statement occurs anywhere in the word of God. (Lect. Intro. to Acts, Cath. Epist. and Rev., p.301-2)
for ^: [The RV] is a great improvement on the Authorized Version, where the words added in italics overstep the truth, and unwittingly imply a serious error. If "the sins of" the whole world were expiated, what would there be to judge? Never does Scripture so teach, save as to believers. Yet Christ died for every man gave Himself a ransom for all; but only of believers is it said that He died and suffered for their sins, or bore them in His body on the tree. But He is the propitiation for the whole world, as well as for our sins; and so the gospel can go forth freely to all the creation. (Bible Treasury 14:110)
