This verse has tried the patience of commentators, both ancient and modern, quite consistently. While many have been content to give what seemed to them the most plausible interpretation, a by no means negligible number of others have unwittingly admitted finding their "Waterloo" at this very verse by resorting to conjectures on account of a supposedly corrupt text, though there are, with only one unimportant exception, no variant readings. Like the suicide they consider conjecture the "man's way out,” but seem to forget that tampering with the MS. record may lead to equally serious consequences.
