Interesting and Hidden Aspects: 

A lot of unusual words as you would expect from a specific instruction. These words as similar to what is found in Matthew and Mark versions.

The word translated as "into" means "into" a place, "towards" as a direction, "in regards to" a subject, and "up to" limits in time and measure.

The word translated as "him" is the Greek word commonly translated as pronouns in English.  The word means "the same" when used as an adjective.

The Greek word translated as "and" is used as the conjunction "and", but it also is used to add emphasis ("also"). It doesn't appear here because both verbs are not active. It appears earlier before "loosening".

"Bring" is a Greek word which means "to lead", "to carry," or "to fetch" and has a lot of different specific meanings in different contexts. It is a command.

There is not "him" after the last verb, but the one before it could apply to both verbs.
