Comments on the clue
1.Lovely idea – not convinced by 'bring' as hidden indicator
2.Neatest of the hidden clues. Would have scored top marks with a clearer indicator eg "…would provide this?"
3.It seems (unfairly, due to iffy cryptic grammar) like "scapegoat" is one of the definitions in a double definition
4.Well worked hidden word and I liked the biblical reference
