Luke 22:49

22:49 When 1  those who were around him saw what was about to happen, they said, “Lord, should 2  we use our swords?” 3 

Luke 22:51

22:51 But Jesus said, 4  “Enough of this!” And he touched the man’s 5  ear and healed 6  him.

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

2 tn The direct question using “if” in Greek is not unusual (BDF §440.3).

3 snShould we use our swords?” The disciples’ effort to defend Jesus recalls Luke 22:35-38. One individual did not wait for the answer.

4 tn Grk “But answering, Jesus said.” This is redundant in contemporary English and has been simplified in the translation.

5 tn Grk “his”; the referent (the slave of the high priest mentioned in the previous verse) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

6 sn When Jesus healed the man’s ear he showed grace even to those who hated him, following his own teaching (Luke 6:27-36).
