Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentLuke 17:12
- Which stood afar off (oi anesthsan porrwten).
- The margin of Westcott and Hort reads simply esthsan. The compound read by B means "rose up," but they stood at a distance (Leviticus 13:45). The first healing of a leper (5:12-16) like this is given by Luke only.
