NET © Notes

tn Grk “And coming into his…” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

sn A touch of drama may be present, as the term calls together can mean a formal celebration (1 Kgs 1:9-10).

tn Grk “the”; in context the article is used as a possessive pronoun (ExSyn 215). It occurs before “neighbors” as well (“his friends and his neighbors”) but has not been translated the second time because of English style.
