Philippians 4:13

Context
4:13 I am able to do all things 1  through the one 2  who strengthens me.

1 tn The Greek word translated “all things” is in emphatic position at the beginning of the Greek sentence.

2 tc Although some excellent witnesses lack explicit reference to the one strengthening Paul (so א* A B D* I 33 1739 lat co Cl), the majority of witnesses (א2 D2 [F G] Ψ 075 1881 Ï sy) add Χριστῷ (Cristw) here (thus, “through Christ who strengthens me”). But this kind of reading is patently secondary, and is a predictable variant. Further, the shorter reading is much harder, for it leaves the agent unspecified.
