Matthew 26:46-50

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.”
