1 tn Grk “answering, said.” This is redundant in contemporary English and has been simplified to “replied.”
2 sn The journey from Jerusalem to Jericho was 17 mi (27 km), descending some 1800 ft (540 m) in altitude. It was known for its danger because the road ran through areas of desert and caves where the robbers hid.
5 tn Grk “and beat,” but καί (kai) has not been translated since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.
6 sn That is, in a state between life and death; severely wounded.
