Luke 17:15-16

Context
17:15 Then one of them, when he saw he was healed, turned back, praising 1  God with a loud voice. 17:16 He 2  fell with his face to the ground 3  at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. 4  (Now 5  he was a Samaritan.) 6 

1 tn Grk “glorifying God.”

2 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

3 tn Grk “he fell on his face” (an idiom for complete prostration).

4 sn And thanked him. This action recognized God’s healing work through Jesus.

5 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “now” to indicate the introduction of a parenthetical comment.

6 sn This is a parenthetical note by the author. The comment that the man was a Samaritan means that to most Jews of Jesus’ day he would have been despised as a half-breed and a heretic. The note adds a touch of irony to the account (v. 18).
