Luke 19:37-38

Context
19:37 As he approached the road leading down from 1  the Mount of Olives, 2  the whole crowd of his 3  disciples began to rejoice 4  and praise 5  God with a loud voice for all the mighty works 6  they had seen: 7  19:38Blessed is the king 8  who comes in the name of the Lord! 9  Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”

1 tn Grk “the descent of”; this could refer to either the slope of the hillside itself or the path leading down from it (the second option has been adopted for the translation, see L&N 15.109).

2 sn See the note on the name Mount of Olives in v. 29.

3 tn Grk “the”; the Greek article has been translated here as a possessive pronoun (ExSyn 215).

4 tn Here the participle χαίροντες (caironte") has been translated as a finite verb in English; it could also be translated adverbially as a participle of manner: “began to praise God joyfully.”

5 sn See 2:13, 20; Acts 2:47; 3:8-9.

6 tn Or “works of power,” “miracles.” Jesus’ ministry of miracles is what has drawn attention. See Luke 7:22.

7 tn Grk “they had seen, saying.” The participle λέγοντες (legontes) is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

8 sn Luke adds the title king to the citation from Ps 118:26 to make clear who was meant (see Luke 18:38). The psalm was used in looking for the deliverance of the end, thus leading to the Pharisees’ reaction.

9 sn A quotation from Ps 118:26.
