NET © Notes

tn Or “It is not useful” (L&N 65.32).

tn Grk “they throw it out.” The third person plural with unspecified subject is a circumlocution for the passive here.

tn The translation “had better listen!” captures the force of the third person imperative more effectively than the traditional “let him hear,” which sounds more like a permissive than an imperative to the modern English reader. This was Jesus’ common expression to listen and heed carefully (cf. Matt 11:15; 13:9, 43; Mark 4:9, 23; Luke 8:8).
