5:36 For some time ago 1 Theudas rose up, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men joined him. He 2 was killed, and all who followed him were dispersed and nothing came of it. 3 5:37 After him Judas the Galilean arose in the days of the census, 4 and incited people to follow him in revolt. 5 He too was killed, and all who followed him were scattered.
1 tn Grk “For before these days.”
2 tn Grk “who.” The relative pronoun was replaced by the pronoun “he,” and a new sentence was begun in the translation at this point.
3 tn Grk “and they came to nothing.” Gamaliel’s argument is that these two insurrectionists were taken care of by natural events.
4 tn Or “registration.”
