This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Taketh away (αἴρει)

Some texts read ἤρεν, took away. According to this reading the word would point back to the work of Jesus as conceived and accomplished in the eternal counsel of God, where His sacrifice of Himself was not exacted, but was His own spontaneous offering in harmony with the Father's will.

I lay it down of myself

Wyc., I put it from myself.

Power (ἐξουσίαν)

Rev., in margin, right. See on Joh 1:12.

Commandment (ἐντολὴν)

See on Jam 2:8.
