Galatians 2:7-8

2:7 On the contrary, when they saw 1  that I was entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised 2  just as Peter was to the circumcised 3  2:8 (for he who empowered 4  Peter for his apostleship 5  to the circumcised 6  also empowered me for my apostleship to the Gentiles) 7 

1 tn The participle ἰδόντες (idontes) has been taken temporally to retain the structure of the passage. Many modern translations, because of the length of the sentence here, translate this participle as a finite verb and break the Greek sentences into several English sentences (NIV, for example, begins new sentences at the beginning of both vv. 8 and 9).

2 tn Grk “to the uncircumcision,” that is, to the Gentiles.

3 tn Grk “to the circumcision,” a collective reference to the Jewish people.

4 tn Or “worked through”; the same word is also used in relation to Paul later in this verse.

5 tn Or “his ministry as an apostle.”

6 tn Grk “to the circumcision,” i.e., the Jewish people.

7 tn Grk “also empowered me to the Gentiles.”
