Luke 5:15-16

5:15 But the news about him spread even more, 1  and large crowds were gathering together to hear him 2  and to be healed of their illnesses. 5:16 Yet Jesus himself 3  frequently withdrew 4  to the wilderness 5  and prayed.

1 sn That is, in spite of Jesus’ instructions to the man to tell no one about the healing (v. 14).

2 tn The word “him” is not in the Greek text, but is implied. Direct objects were frequently omitted in Greek when clear from the context.

3 tn Here αὐτός (autos) has been translated reflexively.

4 tn Grk “was withdrawing” (ἦν ὑποχωρῶν, hn jJupocwrwn). The adverb “frequently” has been added in the translation to bring out what is most likely an iterative force to the imperfect. However, the imperfect might instead portray an ingressive idea: “he began to withdraw.” See ExSyn 542-43.

5 tn Or “desert.”
