Luke 19:38-40

Context
19:38Blessed is the king 1  who comes in the name of the Lord! 2  Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 19:39 But 3  some of the Pharisees 4  in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 5  19:40 He answered, 6  “I tell you, if they 7  keep silent, the very stones 8  will cry out!”

1 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.

2 sn A quotation from Ps 118:26.

3 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “but” to indicate the contrast present in this context. Not all present are willing to join in the acclamation.

4 sn See the note on Pharisees in 5:17.

5 sn Teacher, rebuke your disciples. The Pharisees were complaining that the claims were too great.

6 tn Grk “and answering, he said.” This has been simplified in the translation to “He answered.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

7 tn Grk “these.”

8 sn This statement amounts to a rebuke. The idiom of creation speaking means that even creation knows what is taking place, yet the Pharisees miss it. On this idiom, see Gen 4:10 and Hab 2:11.
