NET © Notes

sn The term distracted means “to be pulled away” by something (L&N 25.238). It is a narrative comment that makes clear who is right in the account.

tn Grk “with much serving.”

tn Here δέ (de) has been translated as “so” to indicate that the following was a result of Martha’s distraction.

tn The negative οὐ (ou) used with the verb expects a positive reply. Martha expected Jesus to respond and rebuke Mary.

tn Grk “has left me to serve alone.”

tn The conjunction οὖν (oun, “then, therefore”) has not been translated here.
