Luke 20:22

Context
20:22 Is it right 1  for us to pay the tribute tax 2  to Caesar 3  or not?”

1 tn Or “lawful,” that is, in accordance with God’s divine law. On the syntax of ἔξεστιν (exestin) with an infinitive and accusative, see BDF §409.3.

2 tn This was a “poll tax.” L&N 57.182 states this was “a payment made by the people of one nation to another, with the implication that this is a symbol of submission and dependence – ‘tribute tax.’”

3 tn Or “to the emperor” (“Caesar” is a title for the Roman emperor).
