WK Translation Notes

There is the too usual discrepancy of copies and critics giving the word "us" twice here. The great MSS. against the best copies give the true text "you." Even the unlearned Christian may be assured that this best agrees with the clauses succeeding, and that "us" would clash. The last clause supports the reading of the ancient MSS.
