NET © Notes

tn Or “the sayings.”

tn Grk “open the eyes of the blind” (“opening the eyes” is an idiom referring to restoration of sight).

tn Questions prefaced with μή (mh) in Greek anticipate a negative answer. This can sometimes be indicated by using a “tag” at the end in English (here the tag is “can it?”).
