1 tn Grk “ground, praying and saying.” Here the participle λέγων (legwn) is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

2 tn Grk “if it is possible.”

3 sn This cup alludes to the wrath of God that Jesus would experience (in the form of suffering and death) for us. See Ps 11:6; 75:8-9; Isa 51:17, 19, 22 for this figure.

4 tn Grk “saying.” The participle λέγων (legwn) is redundant here in contemporary English and has not been translated.

5 tn Grk “this”; the referent (the cup) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
