Luke 12:51-53

Context
12:51 Do you think I have come to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! 1  12:52 For from now on 2  there will be five in one household divided, three against two and two against three. 12:53 They will be divided, 3  father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

1 tn Or “hostility.” This term pictures dissension and hostility (BDAG 234 s.v. διαμερισμός).

2 sn From now on is a popular phrase in Luke: 1:48; 5:10; 22:18, 69; see Mic 7:6.

3 tn There is dispute whether this phrase belongs to the end of v. 52 or begins v. 53. Given the shift of object, a connection to v. 53 is slightly preferred.
