Matthew 26:65-66

Context
26:65 Then the high priest tore his clothes and declared, 1  “He has blasphemed! Why do we still need witnesses? Now 2  you have heard the blasphemy! 26:66 What is your verdict?” 3  They 4  answered, “He is guilty and deserves 5  death.”

1 tn Grk “the high priest tore his clothes, saying.”

2 tn Grk “Behold now.” The Greek word ἰδού (idou) has not been translated because it has no exact English equivalent here, but adds interest and emphasis (BDAG 468 s.v. 1).

3 tn Grk “What do you think?”

4 tn Grk “answering, they said.” This is somewhat redundant and has been simplified in the translation. Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

5 tn Grk “he is guilty of death.” L&N 88.313 states, “pertaining to being guilty and thus deserving some particular penalty – ‘guilty and deserving, guilty and punishable by.’ οἱ δὲ ἀποκριθέντες εἶπαν, ᾿Ενοχος θανάτου ἐστίν ‘they answered, He is guilty and deserves death’ Mt 26:66.”
