WK Translation Notes

everlasting: I have given "everlasting" rather than "eternal" as in the Revised Version, because it fairly admits of a modified sense when applied to "times," as in Rom. 16:25, and Tit. 1:2, as well as here; just as "forever" when spoken of living man on earth is similarly used. Others who hold the same sense prefer "age-times" or "ages of times." "Eternal" though certainly the unmodified meaning, hardly consists with "times." (Exp. of the Two Epist. to Timothy, p. 163)
everlasting: What is the meaning of "before time eternal," in 9? (Bible Treasury 14:30) [See note to Matt. 12:32]
