Matthew 12:34-36

Context
12:34 Offspring of vipers! How are you able to say anything good, since you are evil? For the mouth speaks from what fills the heart. 12:35 The good person 1  brings good things out of his 2  good treasury, 3  and the evil person brings evil things out of his evil treasury. 12:36 I 4  tell you that on the day of judgment, people will give an account for every worthless word they speak.

1 tn The Greek text reads here ἄνθρωπος (anqrwpos). The term is generic referring to any person.

2 tn Grk “the”; the Greek article has been translated here and in the following clause (“his evil treasury”) as a possessive pronoun (ExSyn 215).

3 sn The treasury here is a metaphorical reference to a person’s heart (cf. BDAG 456 s.v. θησαυρός 1.b and the parallel passage in Luke 6:45).

4 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.
