1:11 away (a-14) In those days conquerors transported conquered nations to distant seats, and replaced them by others, that national feeling might not subsist, but dependence be complete. 'Carrying away' is feeble for this, but I know no other word.

Verse 4

17:4 make (a-20) Some read 'I will make,' which I suspect to be the true reading, which copyists thought too bold. But many have it as in the text.

Verse 5

17:5 overshadowed (b-10) The cloud covered, without darkening them; it was bright -- the excellent glory. 2 Peter 1:17 . The word is used in the LXX for the cloud which took possession of the tabernacle and filled it with glory, Exodus 40:34-35 . see Mark 9:7 .

Verse 12

17:12 from (c-35) hupo , the causative or instrumental power, the Son of man being the passive recipient.

Verse 17

17:17 long (d-11) long (d-18) Lit. 'until when.'

Verse 20

17:20 transported (e-33) See ch. 12.9.

Verse 24

17:24 didrachmas (a-11) A Jewish personal tribute to the temple. See Exodus 30:11-16 , and cf. Nehemiah 10:32 ,Nehemiah 10:33 .
