WK Translation Notes

meeting [lit. synagogue]: One can easily understand "synagogue" used by the writer to those addressed, not literally, but as applied by a ready transition to a Christian company. It is therefore here rendered "meeting" as perhaps the nearest analogue. (Bible Treasury N1:219, Exp. of James, p.61)
meeting [lit. synagogue]: 2:2 of the Revised Version has rightly "synagogue," according to the peculiar bearing of the Epistle. (Bible Treasury 14:63)
meeting [lit. synagogue]: So also the bringing in of "synagogue" for the more general "assembly" as in the Authorized Version is a sound correction for reasons which may not have occurred to the Committee on either side of the Atlantic. (Bible Treasury 15:47)
