Luke 17:17-18

17:17 Then 1  Jesus said, 2  “Were 3  not ten cleansed? Where are the other 4  nine? 17:18 Was no one found to turn back and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 5 

1 tn Here δέ (de) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

2 tn Grk “Jesus answering said”; this is redundant in contemporary English and has been simplified in the translation.

3 tn The Greek construction used here (οὐχί, ouci) expects a positive reply.

4 tn The word “other” is implied in the context.

5 sn Jesus’ point in calling the man a foreigner is that none of the other nine, who were presumably Israelites, responded with gratitude. Only the “outsiders” were listening and responding.
