John 21:21-22

21:21 So when Peter saw him, he asked Jesus, “Lord, what about him?” 21:22 Jesus replied, “If I want him to live until I come back, what concern is that of yours? You follow me!”

tn Grk “saw this one.”

tn Grk “Jesus said to him.”

tn Grk “to stay” or “to remain”; but since longevity is the issue in the context, “to live” conveys the idea more clearly.

tn The word “back” is supplied to clarify the meaning.
