NET © Notes

tn Grk “Woe to you…because you…” The causal particle ὅτι (Joti) has not been translated here for rhetorical effect (and so to the end of this chapter).

tn Or “you tithe mint.”

sn These small herbs were tithed with great care (Mishnah, m. Demai 2:1).

tn Grk “and rue.” 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.

sn Rue was an evergreen herb used for seasoning.

sn Justice was a major theme of OT ethics (Mic 6:8; Zech 7:8-10).

tn Grk “those”; but this has been translated as “the others” to clarify which are meant.
