Luke 11:53-54

Context

11:53 When he went out from there, the experts in the law 1  and the Pharisees began to oppose him bitterly, 2  and to ask him hostile questions 3  about many things, 11:54 plotting against 4  him, to catch 5  him in something he might say.

1 tn Or “the scribes.” See the note on the phrase “experts in the law” in 5:21.

2 tn Or “terribly.”

3 tn For this term see L&N 33.183.

4 tn Grk “lying in ambush against,” but this is a figurative extension of that meaning.

5 tn This term was often used in a hunting context (BDAG 455 s.v. θηρεύω; L&N 27.30). Later examples of this appear in Luke 20.
