Note that it is in parentheses, not in brackets, which latter might  
seem to indicate some question about reliability of the Greek text  
being translated. I think the parentheses here simply mean that the  
editors understood this sentence as an explanatory note about the  
proposition just stated previous to this. The verse in question is  
certainly present in the TR, from which KJV translated.
