Matthew 5:1-2

Context
The Beatitudes

5:1 When 1  he saw the crowds, he went up the mountain. 2  After he sat down his disciples came to him. 5:2 Then 3  he began to teach 4  them by saying:

1 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

2 tn Or “up a mountain” (εἰς τὸ ὄρος, eis to oro").

sn The expression up the mountain here may be idiomatic or generic, much like the English “he went to the hospital” (cf. 15:29), or even intentionally reminiscent of Exod 24:12 (LXX), since the genre of the Sermon on the Mount seems to be that of a new Moses giving a new law.

3 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

4 tn Grk “And opening his mouth he taught them, saying.” The imperfect verb ἐδίδασκεν (edidasken) has been translated ingressively.
