John 17:12 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

In the world

Omit.

I kept (ἐτήρουν)

Imperfect tense. I continued to keep. The I is emphatic: I kept them, now do Thou keep them.

I kept (ἐτήρουν)

Rev., rightly, I guarded. The A.V. overlooks the distinction between the two words for keeping. The former word means, I preserved them; the latter, I guarded them as a means to their preservation. See on reserved, 1 Peter 1:4.

Is lost - perdition (ἀπώλετο - ἀπωλείας)

A play of words: "None of them perished, but the son of perishing" (Westcott).

The scripture (ἡ γραφὴ)

See close of note on John 5:47, and see on Mark 12:10.
