For I tell you the truth, 1  many prophets and righteous people longed to see 2  what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.

NET © Notes

tn Grk “truly (ἀμήν, amhn) I say to you.”

sn This is what past prophets and righteous people had wanted very much to see, yet the fulfillment had come to the disciples. This remark is like 1 Pet 1:10-12 or Heb 1:1-2.
