WK Translation Notes

+
a
ye were: The famous Vatican MS. (1209) omits strangely the opening words, but is joined by א A, 5, 40, and some good Latin copies in reading πλανώμενοι as represented here; not "as sheep going astray" as in most, and the Text. Rec. In the LXX. of Psa. 119:176, and of Isa. 53:6, it is the aorist expressive of the fact. Here the present participle looks at the habit rather than the fact. (Epist. of Peter, p.172)
