10 Mark ix.. 32.

11 This passage is translated according to a conjectural emendation of Mr. Field. [The Greek text seems to be corrupt here. The Mss. readings yield no intelligible sense that can be considered coerect.-R.]

12 Or, "produce lawlessness," tou\j poiou=ntaj th\n a0nomi/an ,in which sense it seems more directly applicable to heretics, who may not he vicious in their own lives, but produce a contempt of God's law by their false doctrines. Transl.
