WK Translation Notes

a
in virtue of: [The RV gives] "in the" instead of "through" for ἐν. It expresses the power or virtue in that blood in which God brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus. (Bible Treasury 14:62)
in virtue of... an everlasting: "an" eternal is very much to be doubted. They [the American correctors of the RV] did not suggest "an" eternal Spirit in ch. 9. Our tongue does not always admit of the characterizing power of the anarthrous Greek construction, as may be seen in almost every salutation of the Epistles and often elsewhere. Hence we are forced sometimes to use our definite article where Greek has none. More noteworthy than any of these three is the true bearing of ἐν in 20, where the Revisers do not improve on the Authorized Version rendering of "through" by theirs of "with," for which they add the margin, "or, by Gr. in." It is to be feared that our American friends with the Committee at home hold Calvin's strange idea, which Bleek of late defends though one hardly likes to put it on paper, of Christ's taking the blood with Him to heaven. It is really and simply, in virtue, or in the power, of His blood. (Bible Treasury 15:32)
