Luke 4:9

Context

4:9 Then 1  the devil 2  brought him to Jerusalem, 3  had him stand 4  on the highest point of the temple, 5  and said to him, “If 6  you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here,

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 (the devil) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 map For location see Map5 B1; Map6 F3; Map7 E2; Map8 F2; Map10 B3; JP1 F4; JP2 F4; JP3 F4; JP4 F4.

4 tn Grk “and stood him.”

5 sn The reference to the highest point of the temple probably refers to the one point on the temple’s southeast corner where the site looms directly over a cliff some 450 feet (135 m) high. However, some have suggested the reference could be to the temple’s high gate.

6 tn This is another first class condition, as in v. 3.
