Luke 12:31-32

Context
12:31 Instead, pursue 1  his 2  kingdom, 3  and these things will be given to you as well.

12:32 “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father is well pleased 4  to give you the kingdom.

1 tn Grk “seek,” but in the sense of the previous verses.

2 tc Most mss (Ì45 A D1 Q W Θ 070 Ë1,13 33 Ï lat sy) read τοῦ θεοῦ (tou qeou, “of God”) instead of αὐτοῦ (autou, “his”; found in א B D* L Ψ 579 892 pc co). But such a clarifying reading is suspect. αὐτοῦ is superior on both internal and external grounds. Ì75 includes neither and as such would support the translation above since the article alone can often be translated as a possessive pronoun.

3 sn His (that is, God’s) kingdom is a major theme of Jesus. It is a realm in which Jesus rules and to which those who trust him belong. See Luke 6:20; 11:20; 17:20-21.

4 tn Or perhaps, “your Father chooses.”
