1:4 world, (a-18) Aion . 'age,' 'course of this world.'

Verse 2

2:2 privately (b-23) i.e. separately from the others.

Verse 4

2:4 might (c-30) The expression shows that what would have resulted as a consequence, i.e. 'bring us into bondage,' was indeed the purpose or object of those false brethren. see ver. 19; Philippians 3:8 ; Revelation 22:14 .

Verse 6

2:6 nothing; (d-34) It may be translated 'But from those who were conspicuous as being somewhat; (whatsoever they were it makes no difference to me; God does not accept man's person;) to me indeed [or, 'for to me'] those who were conspicuous communicated nothing.'

Verse 7

2:7 me, (e-16) Or 'I was entrusted with the glad tidings of the uncircumcision.'

Verse 11

2:11 Peter (f-3) See Note, ch. 1.18. condemned. (g-18) Or rather 'because he was convicted of evil.'

Verse 14

2:14 Peter (f-22) See Note, ch. 1.18. not (h-8) The present tense here is characteristic; it is not the present of time; as Acts 25:11 , 'have done any wrong,' and John 8:14 , 'I come.' Perhaps we might say 'saw them not walking,' but it is too free.

Verse 16

2:16 [nor] (a-16) The Greek has the sense of 'but,' with an exclusive force, which I have endeavoured to render by 'nor' in brackets. see Romans 7:7 ; Romans 14:14 ; 1 Corinthians 7:17 ; Galatians 1:7 . We may translate perhaps, 'but only.'

Verse 19

2:19 may (b-11) See Note to 'might bring,' ver. 4.

Verse 20

2:20 *I*, (c-10) Or 'but I live, no longer I,' &c.
