a
thing: The best and most ancient witnesses omit ὄρει here, which is understood from verse 22, where the positive object is found. But Mr. T.S.Green goes so far as to give up the contrast of the twτήσαντοo mountains, and has, "you have come to a fire touched," etc. (Exp. of Heb., p.246)
thing: the Revisers omit ὄρει on fuller evidence than their insertion in 15; but they supply it from 20 in the general sense instead of adopting Mr. Green's singular turn, "to a fire to be touched and glowing." (Bible Treasury 14:48)
