a
being: Or, "subsisting." (Lect. on Phil. and Col., p.2)
being... an object of rapine: Is not "subsisting" a more suitable word than the suggested "existing"? The verse runs better in the Revised Version, "a thing to be grasped" not fitting in well. (Bible Treasury 14:380)
an object of rapine to be on an equality: "a prize to be on an equality" is more correct than "robbery to be equal" (Bible Treasury 13:380)
