John 5:8-9

5:8 Jesus said to him, “Stand up! Pick up your mat 1  and walk.” 5:9 Immediately the man was healed, 2  and he picked up his mat 3  and started walking. (Now that day was a Sabbath.) 4 

1 tn Or “pallet,” “mattress,” “cot,” or “stretcher.” Some of these items, however, are rather substantial (e.g., “mattress”) and would probably give the modern English reader a false impression.

2 tn Grk “became well.”

3 tn Or “pallet,” “mattress,” “cot,” or “stretcher.” See the note on “mat” in the previous verse.

4 tn Grk “Now it was Sabbath on that day.”
