1 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.
2 tn Or “up a mountain” (εἰς τὸ ὄρος, eis to oro").
sn The expression up the mountain here may be idiomatic or generic, much like the English “he went to the hospital” (cf. 15:29), or even intentionally reminiscent of Exod 24:12 (LXX), since the genre of the Sermon on the Mount seems to be that of a new Moses giving a new law.
