I.e. 201 results for Comp. here: http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Guide_for_the_Perplexed_(Friedlander)/Part_III/Chapters#CHAPTER_XLVI

I assume it means "end of verse" or something?

  • I would assume it means line break, but I have no idea. Seems like it's something that was added into the file.

  • It's actually at the beginning of the Pasuk. I don't know what it means. I agree with @avi, that it looks like it was added by the computer code rather than the translator.

It seems in your example that the "Comp." comes before the verse and that it means "compared to."

  • as in "v'chen" brought to bring scriptural proof to a previous statement.

    It's a little odd, though, in that the usual scholarly abbreviation for this purpose would be the Latinate cf.
