JND Translation Notes

h
See Isa. 2.2. A Hebrew expression, as several here, for the end of the period of law, when Messiah was to be introduced.
i
Lit. "in Son." The absence of the Greek article here is important, though difficult to render in English; the result is, that God, speaking in the prophets, and using them as his mouth, is clearly distinct. "in Son" is not exactly "as Son," because that would be the character of the speaking, yet is perhaps the nearest to an adequate expression. It is God himself who speaks; not by another; not as the Father nor in the person of the Father; not merely by the Holy Spirit using a person not divine, but as himself a divine person, and that person the Son.
a
A Jewish expression, meaning "the universe."

[whole verse]: [The American correctors of the RV] say nothing of the Revisers' departure from their rule as to the rendering of the aorist in 1:2 (Bible Treasury 15:29)
at [the] end: "In these last years" (as Tyndale began, followed by all the Protestant English) is too vague a rendering, and apt to be confounded with the different phraseology of 2 Peter 3, Jude 18, or even the more distant phrases in 1 Tim. 4 and 2 Tim. 3. Still more objectionable is the Rhemish text following the Vulgate. Wiclif is nearer the mark, "at the last in these daies," though not quite right. "At the end," or (the) last of these days is the literal and true force, the close of these days of the age under the law, when the Messiah comes. (Exp. of Heb., p.3)
at [the] end: [The RV has], of course, substituted ἐσχάτου for the Text. Rec., ἐσχάτων, which has not the support of a single uncial (Bible Treasury 14:44)
a [or, the] Son: The omission of the article has to do neither with the preposition going before nor with emphatic position, as many learned men have said. That there was intention is obvious; for ἐν τοῖς προφ. would naturally call for ἐν τῷ υἰῷ. Yet the phrase is anarthrous and does not present the person as an object before the mind, but brings character into prominence.... Our language does not so well bear the absence of the article; but it is regular in Greek, and at once the most forcible and the most accurate form of expressing character, which is precisely what was wanted here. (Exp. of Heb., p.3-4)
a [or, the] Son: [This] expression is evidently the truth of especial weight; and here the Revisers conspicuously fail. Indeed the anarthrous construction is their habitual stumbling-block, as is the abstract usage of the Greek article, which requires the absence of the definite article in English. Their text is wrong in bringing in "his," which is not at all the idea here, though, of course, true in itself; whilst their margin, "a Son," is yet worse in every way, as being liable to grave misconstruction anywhere, and peculiarly at issue with a context which has for its aim to set forth His sole, intrinsic, and unapproachable glory as son of God. The true idea is as Son, or in the person of Him who is Son, contrasted with His servants the prophets. Our tongue, however, does not admit of this characterizing style of speech, like the Greek, after a preposition, but only in the nominative; and hence we must insert our article or even paraphrase it. But can there be any doubt that here, as too often in such cases elsewhere, the Revisers have missed the mark in a very essential point of truth? (Bible Treasury 14:44)
a [or, the] Son: [The American correctors of the RV] say nothing of the Revisers' departure from their rule as to the rendering of the aorist in 1:2, or the remarkable expression ἐν υἰῷ, where "in His Son" gives the idea inadequately, though it is difficult to represent it well in our tongue. For "as Son" is too vague, and "in the person of the Son," or "in the Son," would answer to ἐν τῷ υἰῷ, as in the contrasted phrase ἐν τοῖς πρ., the meaning is that God spoke to us in One so nearly related to Him as Son. Very poor is Chrysostom's comment, Ἰδοὺ πάλν τὸ, ἐν υἰῷ διὰ τοῦ φησι, πρὸς τοὺς λέγοντας τῷ πνεύματι τοῦτο ἀρμόζειν. Ὀρᾷς ὄτι καὶ τὸ, ἐν, διά ἐστι; (Interpr. Epp. Paul. vii. 9. Field. Oxon. 1862). So among the Latins Primasius, followed by a crowd down to our day, though not without a numerous and weighty protest. 15:29-30)
