Luke 18:22-23

Context
18:22 When Jesus heard this, he said to him, “One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have 1  and give the money 2  to the poor, 3  and you will have treasure 4  in heaven. Then 5  come, follow me.” 18:23 But when the man 6  heard this he became very sad, 7  for he was extremely wealthy.

1 sn See Luke 14:33.

2 tn The words “the money” are not in the Greek text, but are implied. Direct objects were frequently omitted in Greek when clear from the context.

3 sn See Luke 1:50-53; 6:20-23; 14:12-14.

4 sn The call for sacrifice comes with a promise of eternal reward: …you will have treasure in heaven. Jesus’ call is a test to see how responsive the man is to God’s direction through him. Will he walk the path God’s agent calls him to walk? For a rich person who got it right, see Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10.

5 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the conversation.

6 tn Grk “he”; the referent (the man) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

7 tn Or “very distressed” (L&N 25.277).
