leaders: [It] is calling to mind those apt to be forgotten who had passed away. Hence the text of the A.V. is not in accordance with the truth; nor is the margin though more literal. But in this case we must say were, not "are," your guides, for their course was closed, as the verse itself intimates. (Exp. of Heb., p.260-261)
the which: [The RV has] correctly treated the words as referring to their guides, not "who" but "the which" or such as spoke to them the word of God, whose faith they were to imitate, contemplating the issue of their career or behavior. (Bible Treasury 14:62)
