Matthew 4:4

Context
4:4 But he answered, 1  “It is written, ‘Man 2  does not live 3  by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” 4 

Matthew 4:11

Context
4:11 Then the devil left him, and angels 5  came and began ministering to his needs.

1 tn Grk “answering, he said.” The participle ἀποκριθείς (apokriqeis) is redundant, but the syntax of the phrase has been changed for clarity.

2 tn Or “a person.” Greek ὁ ἄνθρωπος (Jo anqrwpo") is used generically for humanity. The translation “man” is used because the emphasis in Jesus’ response seems to be on his dependence on God as a man.

3 tn Grk “will not live.” The verb in Greek is a future tense, but it is unclear whether it is meant to be taken as a command (also known as an imperatival future) or as a statement of reality (predictive future).

4 sn A quotation from Deut 8:3.

5 tn Grk “and behold, angels.” 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).
