Matthew 12:39

Context
12:39 But he answered them, 1  “An evil and adulterous generation asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.

Matthew 12:41

Context
12:41 The people 2  of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented when Jonah preached to them 3  – and now, 4  something greater than Jonah is here!

1 tn Grk “But answering, he said to them.” This construction is somewhat redundant in English and has been simplified in the translation.

2 tn Grk “men”; the word here (ἀνήρ, anhr) usually indicates males or husbands, but occasionally is used in a generic sense of people in general, as here (cf. BDAG 79 s.v. 1.a, 2).

3 tn Grk “at the preaching of Jonah.”

4 tn Grk “behold.”
