NET © Notes

tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Grk “said.”

tn Here “as well” is used to translate καί (kai) at the beginning of the statement.

tn Grk “men.” This is a generic use of ἄνθρωπος (anqrwpo"), referring to both males and females.

tn Grk “you yourselves do not touch.” This could mean one of two things: (1) Either they make others do what they themselves do not (through various technical exceptions) or (2) they make no effort to help the others fulfill what they are required to do. Considering the care these religious figures are said to have given to the law, the second option is more likely (see L&N 18.11).
