^ river: καθαρόν before ποταμόν very many cursives, Rec., after π. 7. 26. 31. 32. 34. 38. 46. 48. 49.... 91. 96. Compl., Slav.3.4. And., Are., cat., contrary to AB., twenty-eight cursives, Vulg., Cop., Syr., AEth., Ar.e, Slav.10 Hil., Prim., etc. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.63)
^ river: Rec. καθαρὸν π., the edd. omit. (Prospect 1:164)
^ river: "pure" is rightly expunged as an expletive added by several cursives and other authorities, and, as adopted by Erasmus from the Reuchlin copy, current in the received text, but not in the great uncials, א A B P (C being here as often defective) as well as in some thirty juniors and most of the old versions. (Bible Treasury 14:303)
Lamb.: The first clause of 2 is connected singularly by the Revisers with verse 1: "out of the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the midst of the street thereof." Of course it is possible grammatically; and, if allowed, it would strengthen De Wette’s severance of τοῦ ποταμοῦ from ἐν μ. and connection of it only with ἐντ. καὶ ἐντ. But it seems a strange and poor conclusion to the grand picture of the river of life proceeding out of the throne. That no version is known to us generally as favorable to such a construction is serious, when one considers the responsibility of a Revision intended for ordinary use, and not merely what an individual or two might suggest to students. Is it not going beyond the limits of what is fair, especially if it were the impression of a few men confident in their own judgment and ready in overthrowing the pleas of others?
Let me suggest the spiritual propriety as in my opinion confirming here the rendering hitherto and everywhere approved. The beautiful truth is laid down in the opening verse. (Bible Treasury 14:303)
