Luke 10:7-8

Context
10:7 Stay 1  in that same house, eating and drinking what they give you, 2  for the worker deserves his pay. 3  Do not move around from house to house. 10:8 Whenever 4  you enter a town 5  and the people 6  welcome you, eat what is set before you.

1 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

2 tn Grk “eating and drinking the things from them” (an idiom for what the people in the house provide the guests).

3 sn On the phrase the worker deserves his pay see 1 Tim 5:18 and 1 Cor 9:14.

4 tn Grk “And whatever town you enter,” but this is more often expressed in English as “whenever you enter a town.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

5 tn Or “city.” Jesus now speaks of the town as a whole, as he will in vv. 10-12.

6 tn Grk “and they”; the referent (the people who live in the town) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
