NET © Notes

tn Grk “And they.” The conjunction καί (kai, “and”) has not been translated here in keeping with the tendency of contemporary English style to use shorter sentences.

tn The words “again and again” are implied by the (iterative) imperfect verb ἤρχοντο (hrconto).

tn Or “Long live the King of the Jews!”

sn The greeting used by the soldiers, “Hail, King of the Jews!”, is a mockery based on the standard salutation for the Roman emperor, “Ave, Caesar!” (“Hail to Caesar!”).

tn The word “repeatedly” is implied by the (iterative) imperfect verb ἐδιδοσαν (edidosan).
