16tn Or “communion.”
17tc Most witnesses, especially later ones (א2 D Ψ 𝔐 lat sy bo), conclude this letter with ἀμήν (amēn, “amen”), while several early and important mss (𝔓46 א* A B F G 0243 6 33 630 1175 1739 1881 pc sa) lack the particle. Such a conclusion is routinely added by scribes to NT books because a few of these books originally had such an ending (cf. Rom 16:27Gal 6:18Jude 25). A majority of Greek witnesses have the concluding ἀμήν in every NT book except Acts, James, and 3 John (and even in these books, ἀμήν is found in some witnesses). It is thus a predictable variant. That so many diverse witnesses lacked the word here is strong testimony to its absence for the original text of 2 Corinthians
