by evils: Why not in 13 "by evils" or evil things, rather than "with evil" as in the Authorized and Revised Versions? (Bible Treasury 14:62)
by evils: Did they [the American correctors of the RV] not feel the importance of the plural form relegated from the text of 13 to the margin? God tries faith and patience, He never tempts to lusts, which are from within. (Bible Treasury 15:47)
