1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate a summary.
2 tn Grk “he”; the referent (the devil) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
3 tn Grk “until a favorable time.”
sn Until a more opportune time. Though some have argued that the devil disappears until Luke 22:3, this is unlikely since the cosmic battle with Satan and all the evil angels is consistently mentioned throughout Luke (8:26-39; 11:14-23).
