Romans 2:17 (3)

by Darrel Cline

Chapter # 2 Paragraph # 2 Study # 3
Lincolnton, NC

1769 Translation:

17 Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God,

1901 ASV Translation:

17 But if thou bearest the name of a Jew, and restest upon the law, and gloriest in God,

Textual Issues:

In verse 17, the Textus Receptus has the equivalent of "Behold" and the Nestle/Aland 26 has, instead, "But if". The difference is that the Nestle/Aland 26 has the Greek letter epsilon in the text before the iota that is in both texts. That extra letter, plus a different way of dividing the lettering, creates this difference.
