Notes on line 5:

In this line the scribe wrote ὑμεῖν in place of ὑμῖν; this is an example of a common occurrence in the papyri known as reverse iotacism. In Roman Egypt, ει and ι (as well as certain other vowel combinations) were pronounced the same, leading to the many spelling errors generally known as iotacisms.
