22:35 Then 1 Jesus 2 said to them, “When I sent you out with no money bag, 3 or traveler’s bag, 4 or sandals, you didn’t lack 5 anything, did you?” They replied, 6 “Nothing.” 22:36 He said to them, “But now, the one who 7 has a money bag must take it, and likewise a traveler’s bag 8 too.

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.
2 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
4 tn Or possibly “beggar’s bag” (L&N 6.145).
6 tn Grk “said.”
7 tn The syntax of this verse is disputed, resulting in various translations. The major options are either (1) that reflected in the translation or (2) that those who have a money bag and traveler’s bag should get a sword, just as those who do not have these items should sell their cloak to buy a sword. The point of all the options is that things have changed and one now needs full provisions. Opposition will come. But “sword” is a figure for preparing to fight. See Luke 22:50-51.
8 tn Or possibly “beggar’s bag” (L&N 6.145).
