    As per Comfort's book. Isn't this interesting?

    1a : WH NU : to the ones loved in God the Father
    var 1 : to the nations loved in God the Father
    var 2/TR : to those sanctified in God the Father

    "The WH NU reading is strongly supported by the earliest manuscripts." Comfort goes on to say that the change from loved ones to sanctified ones was made in the majority of late manuscripts..."Some scribes must have had difficulty understanding how one could be loved in God the Father..." (p.800)

    4b : WH NU : denying our only Master and Lord,Jesus Christ
    var 1/TR : denying God,the only Master,and our Lord Jesus Christ
    var 2 : denying our Master and our Lord Jesus Christ

    P.W.C. says that the TR reading is poorly attested and in contrast, the WH NU reading is extremely well documented. (p.801)

    19 : WH NU : These are the ones who cause divisions
    var/TR : These are the ones who separate themselves

    "The WH NU reading is strongly supported by the four earliest manuscripts...These people were not excluding themselves from the fellowship (so KJV);they were disrupting the fellowship." (p.805)

    25a : WH NU : to [the] only God our Savior
    var 1/TR : to [the] only wise God,our Savior
    var 2 : to our only God

    "The WH NU reading is solidly supported by a vast array of witnesses." (p.807)
