12 a0po;, "from" or "after."
13 i.e. some Hebrew Christian.
15 The children of the widow of Sarepta, and the Shunamite, had been brought back to continue this life of temptation and sorrow; it was a "better" kind of "Resurrection" which the prophets sought to obtain themselves.
16 a0potumpanismo/j. For instances of this meaning of the word, see Mr. Field's annot.
17 e 0le/gcai, the word used of St. John Baptist reproving Herod, Luke iii. 19.
18 The common texts add the explanatory words, "For this cause also he said, `Of whom the world was not worthy.0' "
19 fronei=n mei/zw.

4 a0moibh=j, i.e. the accepting sufferings instead of an easy life.
5 martu/rwn o!gkon. St. Chrys. connects o!gkon with martu/rwn and takes pa/nta as a neuter plural; the words of the Apostle, tosou=ton e!xontej perikei/menon h$mi=n ne/foj, martu/rwn o!gkon, a0poqe/menoi pa/nta, he would understand thus, "Seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud, a load of witnesses, let us lay aside all things," &c. [But previously he has connected with ge/foj, so that the present. connection with o!gkon was probably an afterthought on the spur of the moment.-F. G.]
6 peri/stasin paqei=n.
9 the human nature.
14 [The insertion of e0ndiwgmoi=j here appears to be entirely without authority, and was probably a slip of memory.-F. G.]
