would be well advised should he see it second hand for a few shillings to secure it. Here
and there its philological notes and explanatory passages are suggestive.
He Kaine Diatheke, The New Testament with English a high and deserved reputation,
not only as a decisive argument for the genuineness of St. Paul's epistles, and the fidelity
