GF3:267 (1659): These things the apostles saw come into the world before their decease, the devil transforming himself into an angel of light [2 Cor 11:14], and false prophets and false spirits gone out into the world [1 Jn 4:1], and since the days of the apostles all that dwelt upon the earth went after them and the beast [Rev 13:3], but those who have theri names written in the Lamb's book of life before the foundation of the world [Rev 13:8]. And the apostle, when satan was transforming himself into an angel of light among the Corinthians [2 Cor 11:14], brought them to the light in them, which would "give them the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ [2 Cor 4:6]."

SIW 67 (Catherine Payton Phillips, 1797): The adversary here transformed himself into an angel of light [2 Cor 11:14], and, under the specious apperance of righteousness, represented the way so strait [Mat 7:14], that it was impossible to walk therein and act as a rational being; thereby endeavouring to discourage me, or prevent my attaining to the true gospel liberty, in the use of creatures, and the course of my conduct.

13:9 For [T omits] we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are [G: that ye are; T: ye] strong: and this also we wish [GT +for], even your perfection [T: that ye were perfect].

13:10 Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being [GBT: when I am] present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification, and not to destruction [T: edify and not to destroy].

JSS 64 (continued from John 8:56-58): [Abraham] was born of God. Christ lived in him, was his "hope of glory" [Col 1:27]. If it had not been so, he had been a reprobate; for it holds good in every age, as Paul said to those of his day, "Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates [2 Cor 13:5]."


13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell [GT: fare ye well]. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

13:12 Greet one another with an holy kiss.

13:13 All the saints salute you.

13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. was [G omits] written from Philippi, a city of [G: in] Macedonia, [G: +and sent] by Titus and Lucas.>
