18 Lit. "to the forms (sxh/mata) of all afflictions."-TR.

19 This seems preferable to Cureton's "Ye are the stewards of (her) faith." The expression exactly corresponds in form to that in Luke xvi. 8 (Peshito): "the steward of injustice" = "the unjust steward."

20 Lit. "crucifixion."-TR.

21 Or "elders."-TR.

22 By this name the men referred to (not, however, the elders, but the two false witnesses suborned by them) are called ni 1 Kings xxi. 10, 13. The expression in the text is literaly "sons of iniquity," and that is used by the Peshito.-TR.

23 Or "have an open countenance."-TR.

1 Lit. "Son of Daisan," from a river so called near Edessa.-HAHN. [Elucidation I. "The Laws of Countries" is the title. For "Various Countries" I have used "Divers."]

2 Called by Eusebius, Hist. Eccl., iv. 30, The Discourse on Fate ( 9O peri\ ei0marme/nhj dia/logoj). This is more correct than the title above given: the "Laws" are adduced only as illustrations of the argument of the piece. The subject would, however, be more properly given as "The Freedom of the Will."

3 Lit. "going in." Cureton renders, "we went up."

4 Lit. "felt him."

5 Lit. "before him." Merx: "ehe er kam."

6 The word used is formed from the Greek eu0sxhmo/nwj. [Here observe what is said (in Elucidation I.) by Noldke on the Hellenization theory of Mommsen, with refernece to this very work; p. 742, infra.]

7 Lit. "hast anything in thy mind."

8 Lit. "there are for thee other things also."

9 is here substituted for the of the text, which yields no sense.

10 Lit. "the wisdom of the truth."

11 Lit. "are not able tos tand."

12 Or, "in the hand of the oeprator;" but it is better to employ two words.

13 Or, "and the sphere."
