Matthew 17:17

Context
17:17 Jesus answered, 1  “You 2  unbelieving 3  and perverse generation! How much longer 4  must I be with you? How much longer must I endure 5  you? 6  Bring him here to me.”

Matthew 17:20

Context
17:20 He told them, “It was because of your little faith. I tell you the truth, 7  if you have faith the size of 8  a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; nothing 9  will be impossible for you.”

1 tn Grk “And answering, Jesus said.” This is somewhat redundant and has been simplified in the translation.

2 tn Grk “O.” The marker of direct address, (w), is functionally equivalent to a vocative and is represented in the translation by “you.”

3 tn Or “faithless.”

sn The rebuke for lack of faith has OT roots: Num 14:27; Deut 32:5, 30; Isa 59:8.

4 tn Grk “how long.”

5 tn Or “put up with.” See Num 11:12; Isa 46:4.

6 sn The pronouns you…you are plural, indicating that Jesus is speaking to a group rather than an individual.

7 tn Grk “For truly (ἀμήν, amhn), I say to you.” Here γάρ (gar) has not been translated.

8 tn Grk “faith as,” “faith like.”

9 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated.
