the nations A shall walk by its light: τὰ ἔθνη τῶν σωζομένων ἐν τῷ φωτὶ αὐτ. περιπα. a few mss. (probably from the comment of Andreas), contrary to AB., most mss., Vv., and Ff. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.62-63)
the nations ^ shall walk by its light: The edd. κ. π. τ. ἔθ. δ. τ. φ. αὐτ. not as Rec. τῶν σ. ἐν τ. φ. αὐτ. (Prospect 1:164)
the nations ^ shall walk by its light: there is the serious error in the Received Text of τῶν σωζομένων in accordance with the Codex Reuchlini. Probably it is due to some Greek comment as in Cranmer’s (Cat. P. Gr. vi. 577, Oxon. 1840) though τὰ μὲν οὖν σωζόμενα ἔθνη does not justify the confusion of the received text. And such I see is the opinion of Matthaei (x. 198) who cites a scholium of Andreas, which Tischendorf borrows. ἐν (1. omits) τῷ φ., as in the Received Text, should be διὰ τ. φ. on the amplest evidence (Bible Treasury 14:288)
the nations: After "the nations" in verse 24 omit the words "of them which are saved." You must with the best authorities leave out this addition, if you would have the true force of the verse. It is a wholly unwarranted interpolation. "The nations shall walk in the light of it." Any one of spiritual judgment can see that it should not be "nations of them which are saved." What would be the meaning, if so read? We can understand a remnant saved out of one or more nations; but who ever heard of "nations of them which are saved"? It is altogether unfeasible, and it shows how carelessly we read the Bible that people are not stopped by such an expression. The fact is, in the very best authorities it does not exist at all. The "saved" is a term which, so far from belonging to the nations, is expressly applied to the Jewish remnant when it is a technical term. But "nations of them which are saved," is a most anomalous expression, and betrays man as the author of it. (Lect. Intro. to Acts, Cath. Epist. and Rev., p.574-5, see also Rev. Exp., p. 255)
nations ^: Not a word is said [in the RV] about the salvation of these nations (τῶν σωζ. in 24 being notoriously spurious and even absurd) (Bible Treasury 14:304) [See note to Acts 2:47]
bring their: φ. αὐτῷ δ. B., very many cursives. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.63)
bring their: Matthiae φέρ. αὐτῷ δόξ. κ. (Prospect 1:164)
their: αὐτῶν A., most mss., Vv., and Ff.; τῶν ἐθνῶν B., twenty-eight cursives, Syr., Slav.4 (Rev. of John, 1860, p.63)
their: Matthiae τ. ἐθνῶ εἰς αὐτ. (Prospect 1:164)
glory ^: καὶ τὴν (B., very many cursives, Are., cat., omit) τιμήν B., most mss., Vulg., Syr., etc., add, contrary to A. 10. 11. 17. 18. 38. 47. Er., Cop., AEth., Ar.e, Gr. and Lat. Ff. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.63)
glory ^: Ln. Tisch. Treg. omit καὶ τὴν τιμήν.... Matthiae κ. τιμὴν. (Prospect 1:164)
glory ^: καὶ τὴν τιμήν, though edited by the Complutensians as well as Erasmus, and not without more support than they knew, should disappear on better testimony. No doubt the words were imported from verse 26 (Bible Treasury 14:288)
glory ^: καὶ τὴν τιμήν, though edited by the Complutensians as well as Erasmus, and not without more support than they knew, should disappear on better testimony. No doubt the words were imported from verse 26 (Bible Treasury 14:288)
unto: Not into, but unto, for which Greek there is but one word. (Lect. on Rev., p.481)
unto: not into, but unto. That is, it is an expression of the homage that they pay. The word means either as the context may require. (Rev. Exp., p.256)
