NET © Notes

tn Or “who pursued.” The participle could be taken adverbially or adjectivally.

tn Or “a legal righteousness,” that is, a righteousness based on law. This translation would treat the genitive δικαιοσύνης (dikaiosunh") as an attributed genitive (see ExSyn 89-91).

tn Grk “has not attained unto the law.”
