NET © Notes

tn “Other” is not in the Greek text but is supplied for clarity in English.

tn Grk “by means of.”

sn Presumably the author means he would rather say the additional things he wants to say to the recipients in person rather than by letter (with paper and ink).

tn Grk “speak mouth to mouth,” an idiom for which the English equivalent is “speak face to face.”

tn Grk “be fulfilled.”
