Matthew 2:13

Context
The Escape to Egypt

2:13 After they had gone, an 1  angel of the Lord 2  appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother and flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you, for Herod 3  is going to look for the child to kill him.”

1 tn Grk “behold, an angel.” 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).

2 tn Or “the angel of the Lord.” See the note on the word “Lord” in 1:20.

3 sn See the note on King Herod in 2:1. Herod the Great was particularly ruthless regarding the succession to his throne.
