I think that the commentaries that were written before
the discoveries of Grenfell and Hunt at Oxyrhynchus
near the turn of the last century are not as reliable
as those commentaries which now are being published.
The spiritual comments may be relevant, but the papyri
revolutionized lexicography and it would be best to
use more recent ones. J. B. Lightfoot amazingly enough
seemed to anticipate the papyri revolution and
therefore his commentaries remian useful and accurate
