14:10 But when you are invited, go and take the least important place, so that when your host 1 approaches he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up here to a better place.’ 2 Then you will be honored in the presence of all who share the meal with you. 14:11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but 3 the one who humbles 4 himself will be exalted.”
1 tn Grk “the one who invited you.”
2 tn Grk “Go up higher.” This means to move to a more important place.
3 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “but” to indicate the contrast present in this context, which involves the reversal of expected roles.
