Matthew 26:45-50

Context
26:45 Then he came to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour is approaching, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 26:46 Get up, let us go. Look! My betrayer 1  is approaching!”

Betrayal and Arrest

26:47 While he was still speaking, Judas, 2  one of the twelve, arrived. With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent by the chief priests and elders of the people. 26:48 (Now the betrayer 3  had given them a sign, saying, “The one I kiss is the man. 4  Arrest him!”) 5  26:49 Immediately 6  he went up to Jesus and said, “Greetings, Rabbi,” and kissed him. 7  26:50 Jesus 8  said to him, “Friend, do what you are here to do.” Then they came and took hold 9  of Jesus and arrested him.

1 tn Grk “the one who betrays me.”

2 tn Grk “behold, Judas.” The Greek word ἰδού (idou) has not been translated because it has no exact English equivalent here, but adds interest and emphasis (BDAG 468 s.v. 1).

3 tn Grk “the one who betrays him.”

4 tn Grk “The one I kiss is he.”

5 sn This remark is parenthetical within the narrative and has thus been placed in parentheses.

6 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated.

7 sn Judas’ act of betrayal when he kissed Jesus is especially sinister when it is realized that it was common in the culture of the times for a disciple to kiss his master when greeting him.

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

9 tn Grk “and put their hands on Jesus.”
