^ gold: "of" gold is rightly dropt [in the RV] (Bible Treasury 14:79)
at: In 7, as in 13, the Revisers rightly translate, like the Authorized Version, ἐν "at" the revelation. What is the use of following the foreign fashion, and saying "in" the element, in time, in which it shall be manifested? It is to lose English in a childish literality of Greek. (Bible Treasury 15:63)
