him: αὐτόν ABC., twenty-seven mss.; αὐτῷ many mss., Rec. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.36)
him: Rec. αὐτῷ, the edd. αὐτόν. (Prospect 1:159)
of whom: οὖ οὐ C., Ir.int; οὐαι A. (both add αὐτοῦ); ὤν οὐ or οὔτε B. and the mass of mss., Rec. (omitting αὐτοῦ,), Vv., and Ff. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.36)

name: it is certainly "name," emphatically singular, and indeed needing some means of expressing this, like "everyone" in the Revised Version, or "whose name soever," as Mr. T. S. Green proposes. (Bible Treasury 14:191)

slain: ἐσφαγισμένου Er. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.36)
from the world's foundation: [The punctuation of this passage, and a parallel one in chap. 17:8, where the words "of the Lamb slain" are not introduced, leads me to suppose that the concluding part, "from the foundation of the world," refers to "the names written in the book of life."... Ἐσφαγμένον, implies something done; and, though he was really slain to the eye of John in Patmos, as he tells us in chap. 5:6, yet, to the minds of patriarchs and prophets, he could not be said to be so, but rather "to be slain."... M.S.M.]
M.S.M. is correct in thinking that the true link is between the names written (not the Lamb slain) from the foundation of the world. Christ was foreordained as a lamb before the foundation of the world, but not slain till the due time. (Christian Annotator 2:20)
from the world's foundation: Whether Dean Alford's reasoning influenced the Revisers is best known to themselves; but it is impossible to admit the soundness of bringing forward 1 Pet. 1:19, 20 as the same thing with our passage, for it expressly speaks of Christ foreknown before the world was founded but manifested before the end of the times.
Here there is no question of Christ purposed, but of the name having been written from the world's foundation in the book of the Lamb that has been slain. To say that Rev. 17:8 is cited irrelevantly here is surely idle. Christ's death is nowhere said to have taken place in divine counsels; it was foreknown, but took place in time. The Lord does the things known from of old, but they are nowhere said to have been done then. Is then the Authorized or Revised Version happy? It seems to be equivocal, if not misleading. A comma before "from" would have guarded the truth. The marginal note gives the right view; from which it would appear that the majority of the Committee preferred the wrong. (Bible Treasury 14:191)
from the world's foundation: In my opinion they [the American correctors of the RV] are no less right in suggesting that marg. and the text, ver.8 should exchange places. (Comp. 17:8) (Bible Treasury 15:192)
