    Definitions for Mark 9:12

    Nought - Nothing.
    Verily - Truly; surely.

    Clarke's Commentary on Mark 9:12

    And how it is written - Rather, as also it is written. Instead of και πως, And How it is written, I read καθως, As Also it is written of the Son of man, etc. This reading is supported by AKM, seventeen others, the later Syriac in the margin, Slavonic and Armenian. Some think the propriety of adopting this reading is self-evident.
