NET © Notes

tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “but” to indicate the contrast present in this context.

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

tn Grk “before men.” The contrast is between outward appearance (“in people’s eyes”) and inward reality (“God knows your hearts”). Here the Greek term ἄνθρωπος (anqrwpo") is used twice in a generic sense, referring to both men and women, but “men” has been retained in the text to provide a strong verbal contrast with “God” in the second half of the verse.

tn Or “exalted.” This refers to the pride that often comes with money and position.

tn Or “is an abomination,” “is abhorrent” (L&N 25.187).
