Luke 14:13

Context
14:13 But when you host an elaborate meal, 1  invite the poor, the crippled, 2  the lame, and 3  the blind. 4 

Luke 14:21

Context
14:21 So 5  the slave came back and reported this to his master. Then the master of the household was furious 6  and said to his slave, ‘Go out quickly 7  to the streets and alleys of the city, 8  and bring in the poor, 9  the crippled, 10  the blind, and the lame.’

1 tn This term, δοχή (doch), is a third term for a meal (see v. 12) that could also be translated “banquet, feast.”

2 sn Normally the term means crippled as a result of being maimed or mutilated (L&N 23.177).

3 tn Here “and” has been supplied between the last two elements in the series in keeping with English style.

4 sn This list of needy is like Luke 7:22. See Deut 14:28-29; 16:11-14; 26:11-13.

5 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate the result of the preceding responses.

6 tn Grk “being furious, said.” The participle ὀργισθείς (orgisqei") has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style.

7 sn It was necessary to go out quickly because the banquet was already prepared. All the food would spoil if not eaten immediately.

8 tn Or “town.”

9 sn The poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame. Note how the list matches v. 13, illustrating that point. Note also how the party goes on; it is not postponed until a later date. Instead new guests are invited.

10 tn Grk “and the crippled.” Normally crippled as a result of being maimed or mutilated (L&N 23.177). Καί (kai) has not been translated here and before the following category (Grk “and the blind and the lame”) since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.
