16:21 From that time on 1 Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem 2 and suffer 3 many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, 4 and be killed, and on the third day be raised. 16:22 So Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him: 5 “God forbid, 6 Lord! This must not happen to you!”
1 tn Grk “From then.”
3 sn The necessity that the Son of Man suffer is the particular point that needed emphasis since for many 1st century Jews the Messiah was a glorious and powerful figure, not a suffering one.
5 tn Grk “began to rebuke him, saying.” The participle λέγων (legwn) is redundant in English and has not been translated.
6 tn Grk “Merciful to you.” A highly elliptical expression: “May God be merciful to you in sparing you from having to undergo [some experience]” (L&N 88.78). A contemporary English equivalent is “God forbid!”
