Luke 7:35

7:35 But wisdom is vindicated 1  by all her children.” 2 

Luke 10:21-22


10:21 On that same occasion 3  Jesus 4  rejoiced 5  in the Holy Spirit and said, “I praise 6  you, Father, Lord 7  of heaven and earth, because 8  you have hidden these things from the wise 9  and intelligent, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your gracious will. 10  10:22 All things have been given to me by my Father. 11  No one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son decides 12  to reveal him.”

1 tn Or “shown to be right.” This is the same verb translated “acknowledged… justice” in v. 29, with a similar sense – including the notion of response. Wisdom’s children are those who respond to God through John and Jesus.

2 tn Or “by all those who follow her” (cf. CEV, NLT). Note that the parallel in Matt 11:19 reads “by her deeds.”

3 tn Grk “In that same hour” (L&N 67.1).

4 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

5 sn Jesus rejoiced. The account of the mission in 10:1-24 ends with several remarks about joy.

6 tn Or “thank.”

7 sn The title Lord is an important name for God, showing his sovereignty, but it is interesting that it comes next to a reference to the Father, a term indicative of God’s care. The two concepts are often related in the NT; see Eph 1:3-6.

8 tn Or “that.”

9 sn See 1 Cor 1:26-31.

10 tn Grk “for (to do) thus was well pleasing before you,” BDAG 325 s.v. ἔμπροσθεν 1.δ; speaking of something taking place “before” God is a reverential way of avoiding direct connection of the action to him.

11 sn This verse has been noted for its conceptual similarity to teaching in John’s Gospel (10:15; 17:2). The authority of the Son and the Father are totally intertwined.

12 tn Or “wishes”; or “intends”; or “plans” (cf. BDAG 182 s.v. βούλομαι 2.b). Here it is the Son who has sovereignty.
