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.
