WK Translation Notes

grace ^: [but if works, it is no longer grace, otherwise work is no longer work]... The Vatican, which is the best support of this doubtful clause, reads χάρις, grace....But I do not see that the bracketed clause adds to the precision of the truth; whereas it was natural enough to tack it on, especially as the form in the Vatican copy seems an evident error (χάρις instead of ἕργον in the end of the disputed clause). (Bible Treasury 9:5, Notes on Romans, p.215,217)
grace ^: The latter part of chapter 11:6 is rejected by אp.m. A C D E F G P, etc., with the ancient versions, save the Syrr. and Eth., and so is properly left out of text and margin by the Revisers, notwithstanding its presence (p.m.) in the favorite Vatican, L, and the mass of cursives. (Bible Treasury 13:351, 352)
