Matthew 11:5

11:5 The blind see, the 1  lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have good news proclaimed to them.

Matthew 11:25

Jesus’ Invitation

11:25 At that time Jesus said, 2  “I praise 3  you, Father, Lord 4  of heaven and earth, because 5  you have hidden these things from the wise 6  and intelligent, and revealed them to little children.

1 tn Grk “and the,” but καί (kai) has not been translated since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more. Two other conjunctions are omitted in this series.

2 tn Grk “At that time, answering, Jesus said.” This construction is somewhat redundant in English and has been simplified in the translation.

3 tn Or “thank.”

4 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.

5 tn Or “that.”

6 sn See 1 Cor 1:26-31.
