    I have been going through some of Philip W.Comfort's book on textual variants. Here are a few from the book of Philippians.

    2:9
    WH NU : the name above every name
    var/TR : a name above every name

    "The four earliest manuscripts,as well as C 33 1739,support the wording in WH NU." Those witnesses have the definite article. (p.608)

    2:30b
    WH NU : having risked his life
    var/TR : having no regard for his life

    The translated word "risked" has superior manuscript support. (p.610)

    3:16
    WH NU : let us adhere to the same
    var/TR : let us adhere to the same rule,to think the same thing

    "The manuscript evidence overwhelmingly supports the WH NU reading..." (p.614)

    A portion of the NET note says it is evident that the longer reading is of a secondary nature and that "the shortest text has excellent and early support."

    4:13
    WH NU : the one empowering me
    var/TR : the one empowering me,Christ


    The variant is clearly a scribal addition..." (p.616)

    A bit of the NET note says "this kind of reading is patently secondary. It goes on to say that "the shorter reading is much harder,for it leaves the agent unspecified."

    In this book the TR reading agrees with WH and NU in the following cases:

    1:6 : WH
    1:14 : NU
    2:2 : WH NU
    2:11 : WH NU
    2:15a : WH NU
    2:26 : NU
    3:13 : NU
    4:3b : WH NU
    4:19 : WH NU

    WH =TR 6 times.
    NU =TR 8 times.
