Luke 8:54-55

Context
8:54 But Jesus 1  gently took her by the hand and said, 2  “Child, get up.” 8:55 Her 3  spirit returned, 4  and she got up immediately. Then 5  he told them to give her something to eat.

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

2 tn Grk “and called, saying.” This is redundant in contemporary English and has been simplified in the translation to “and said.”

3 tn Grk “And her.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

4 sn In other words, she came back to life; see Acts 20:10.

5 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.
