[Milton-L] another little note

Dear Jeffery,

A couple of little citations. First, that same Bible (American Bible  
Society) notes for Leviticus xi:44-45--Lev. 19:2 and 1 Peter 1:16,  
and of course 1 Peter 1:16 notes Lev. xi.44-45 and xix:2. I also  
meant to mention that the Rheims (Douay) translation of 1582 (the New  
Testament) does NOT have an annotation for Matthew v:48 although it  
annotates extensively, suggesting that it was not a question for  
Catholics at that time. Its translation is the same: "Be you perfect  
therfore, as also your heauen-ly father is perfect." For 1 Peter 1:16  
the Douay cites Leu. 11.19,  20.7 Deu. 10. Ro. 2 Gal. 2.

Doesn't Paul Miller's post answer the question of "meaning" of  
"perfect" here?
