138 We have left trupaj untranslated. [Cavities, i.e. of conception].

139 Cod. Sin. has, "with the body through uncleanness," and so again in the last clause.

140 Cod. Sin. inserts, "having received."

141 Ps. i. 1.

142 Literally, "of the pestilent."

143 Cod. Sin. reads, "perfectly," instead of "perfect," as do most mss.; but, according to Dressel, we should read, "have a perfect knowledge concerning the food." Hilgenfeld follows the Greek.

144 Or, "resting upon Him."

145 Cod. Sin. here has the singular, "one who ruminates."

146 Literally, "holy age."

147 Cod. sin. inserts again, "rightly."

164 Cod. Sin. reads, "He speaks to Moses."

165 Cod. Sin. omits "and."

166 Cod. Sin. reads pugmhj, which must here be translated "heap" or "mass." According to Hilgenfeld, however, pugmh is here equivalent to pugmaxia, "a fight." The meaning would then be, that "Moses piled weapon upon weapon in the midst of the battle," instead of "hill" (phghj), as above.

167 Thus standing in the form of a cross.

207 Isa. xlii. 6, 7.

208 Cod. Sin. has, "we know."

209 Isa. xlix. 6. The text of Cod. Sin., and of the other mss., is here in great confusion: we have followed that given by Hefele.
