Made nothing perfect (ouden eteleiwsen). Another parenthesis. First aorist active indicative of teleiow. See verse Titus 11 . And yet law is necessary. A bringing in thereupon (epeisagwgh). An old double compound (epi, additional, eisagwgh, bringing in from eisagw). Here only in N.T. Used by Josephus (Ant. XI. 6, 2) for the introduction of a new wife in place of the repudiated one.
