WK Translation Notes

1
[whole verse]: it should be "Luxuriously ye lived on the earth and indulged yourselves; ye nourished... condemned... killed," etc. All is summed up conclusively in the view of the writer; who nevertheless guards against possible misuse by his transition to the present in the closing words, "he doth not resist you." (Compare also ver. 7-10). (Bible Treasury 15:48)
^ in: "as" of the Text. Rec. is rightly excluded, though not a few authorities favor its insertion. (Bible Treasury 14:64)
