Matthew 11:25-30

Context
Jesus’ Invitation

11:25 At that time Jesus said, 1  “I praise 2  you, Father, Lord 3  of heaven and earth, because 4  you have hidden these things from the wise 5  and intelligent, and revealed them to little children. 11:26 Yes, Father, for this was your gracious will. 6  11:27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father. 7  No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son decides 8  to reveal him. 11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 11:29 Take my yoke 9  on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 11:30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and my load is not hard to carry.”

Luke 10:21

Context

10:21 On that same occasion 10  Jesus 11  rejoiced 12  in the Holy Spirit and said, “I praise 13  you, Father, Lord 14  of heaven and earth, because 15  you have hidden these things from the wise 16  and intelligent, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this was your gracious will. 17 

1 tn Grk “At that time, answering, Jesus said.” This construction is somewhat redundant in English and has been simplified in the translation.

2 tn Or “thank.”

3 sn The title Lord is an important name for God, showing his sovereignty, but it is interesting that it comes next to a reference to the Father, a term indicative of God’s care. The two concepts are often related in the NT; see Eph 1:3-6.

4 tn Or “that.”

5 sn See 1 Cor 1:26-31.

6 tn Grk “for (to do) thus was well-pleasing before you,” BDAG 325 s.v. ἔμπροσθεν 1.b.δ; speaking of something taking place “before” God is a reverential way of avoiding direct connection of the action to him.

7 sn This verse has been noted for its conceptual similarity to teaching in John’s Gospel (10:15; 17:2). The authority of the Son and the Father are totally intertwined.

8 tn Or “wishes”; or “intends”; or “plans” (cf. BDAG 182 s.v. βούλομαι 2.b). Here it is the Son who has sovereignty.

9 sn A yoke is a wooden bar or frame that joins two animals like oxen or horses so that they can pull a wagon, plow, etc. together. Here it is used figuratively of the restrictions that a teacher or rabbi would place on his followers.

10 tn Grk “In that same hour” (L&N 67.1).

11 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

12 sn Jesus rejoiced. The account of the mission in 10:1-24 ends with several remarks about joy.

13 tn Or “thank.”

14 sn The title Lord is an important name for God, showing his sovereignty, but it is interesting that it comes next to a reference to the Father, a term indicative of God’s care. The two concepts are often related in the NT; see Eph 1:3-6.

15 tn Or “that.”

16 sn See 1 Cor 1:26-31.

17 tn Grk “for (to do) thus was well pleasing before you,” BDAG 325 s.v. ἔμπροσθεν 1.δ; speaking of something taking place “before” God is a reverential way of avoiding direct connection of the action to him.
