Jude 1:9

Context
1:9 But even 1  when Michael the archangel 2  was arguing with the devil and debating with him 3  concerning Moses’ body, he did not dare to bring a slanderous judgment, but said, “May the Lord rebuke you!”

1 tn The word “even” is not in Greek; it is implied by the height of the contrast.

2 sn According to Jewish intertestamental literature (such as 1 En. 20), Michael was one of seven archangels.

3 tn The sentence structure is a bit different in Greek. Literally it reads: “But Michael the archangel, when arguing with the devil and disputing.”
