This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

He it is who, coming after me (αὐτός ἐστιν ὁ ὀπίσω μοῦ ἐρχούμενος)

The best texts omit the first two words. Westcott and Hort also omit ὁ so that the rendering is, whom ye know not, coming after me.

Was preferred before me

The best texts omit.

To unloose (ἵνα λύσω)

Literally, that I should unloose. Mark (Mar 1:7) and Luke (Luk 3:16) have unloose. Matthew (Mat 3:11) bear. See on Mat 3:11.
