Matthew 26:63-67

Context
26:63 But Jesus was silent. The 1  high priest said to him, “I charge you under oath by the living God, tell us if you are the Christ, 2  the Son of God.” 26:64 Jesus said to him, “You have said it yourself. But I tell you, from now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand 3  of the Power 4  and coming on the clouds of heaven.” 5  26:65 Then the high priest tore his clothes and declared, 6  “He has blasphemed! Why do we still need witnesses?

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

5 sn An allusion to Dan 7:13 (see also Matt 24:30).

6 tn Grk “the high priest tore his clothes, saying.”

7 tn Grk “Behold now.” 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).

8 tn Grk “What do you think?”

9 tn Grk “answering, they said.” This is somewhat redundant and has been simplified in the translation. Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

10 tn Grk “he is guilty of death.” L&N 88.313 states, “pertaining to being guilty and thus deserving some particular penalty – ‘guilty and deserving, guilty and punishable by.’ οἱ δὲ ἀποκριθέντες εἶπαν, ᾿Ενοχος θανάτου ἐστίν ‘they answered, He is guilty and deserves death’ Mt 26:66.”
