This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Bare record (ἐμαρτύρησεν)

Better, bear witness, as Rev. See on Joh 1:7.

I saw (τεθέαμαι)

Rev., more correctly, gives the force of the perfect tense, I have beheld. Calmly and thoughtfully; see on Joh 1:14. The perfect indicates the abiding effect of the vision. Compare ἑώρακα, I have seen (Joh 1:34).

As a dove (ὡσεὶ περιστερὰν)

In the shape of a dove. See on Mat 3:16.
