a
of: ἐκ Rec. is wanting in ABC., forty-five mss., and many versions and fathers. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.2)
prince... loveth: the change from "prince" to "ruler" [in the RV] is not much; "loveth" for "loved" is good (Bible Treasury 14:142)
loveth: ἀγαπῶντι ABC., more than forty cursives, the Syriac, while ἀγαπήσαντι is read by many later mss. (ὂς ἠγάπησεν 87.), the Vulgate, Coptic, etc. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.2)
loveth: Rec. ἀγαπήσαντι, the edd. ἀγαπῶντι. (Prospect 1:153)
washed: λούσαντι B. and the mass of copies, (ἔλουσεν 87.) versions, etc. λύσαντι AC. 6. 7. (which prefixes a long gloss) 12. 28.* 36. 69. versions etc. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.2)
washed: Another reading λύσαντι, "loosed," is supported by the three best uncials א A C, a few good cursives, the Syriac, some Slav. copies, and early writers. But ου might be easily merged in υ and the idea of washing seems most in keeping with the style elsewhere. The common reading is supported by B P, the vast majority of the cursives, versions, and citations. Doctrinally the difference of sense is unimportant. (Lect. on Rev., p.10)
washed: Rec. Gr. Kn. Sz. and Treg. λούσαντι, Ln. and Tisch. λύσαντι. (Prospect 1:153)
washed: "loosed" for "washed" is hazardous, though here Tischendorf too was swayed by the Sinaitic in addition to A C, etc., to give in to Lachmann and Tregelles. The vowel might easily have displaced the diphthong, especially as the rendering is thereby easier, though less akin to the Johannean style. (Bible Treasury 14:142)
from: ἀπό B. and the great majority, ἐκ AC. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.2-3)
our: ἠμῶν, omitted by. 12. 16. Er., is to be read with BC. and the rest. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.3)
