References for Hebrews 12:1

    • a 12:1 - Witness, in English, has two senses: 'seeing, so as to bear witness,' and 'giving testimony to.' The last only I apprehend is in the Greek here.
    • b 12:1 - Or 'the sin.'
    • c 12:1 - Or 'besets.' The one Greek word here represents the whole phrase, 'which so easily entangles us.'
