NET © Notes

sn An allusion to Dan 7:13.

tn Here καί (kai) was translated as ascensive.

sn An allusion to Zech 12:10.

tn In this context, tribes (φυλαί, fulai) could also be translated as “nations” or “peoples” (L&N 11.56).

tn The conjunction ἐπί (epi) is most likely causal here. The people who crucified him are those of every tribe on the earth and they will mourn because he comes as judge.

tn Grk “Yes, Amen.” The expression “This will certainly come to pass” is an attempt to capture the force of the juxtaposition of the Greek ναί (nai) and the Hebrew ἀμήν (amhn). See L&N 69.1.

sn These lines are placed in parentheses because they form an aside to the main argument.
