Luke 11:53-54

11:53 When he went out from there, the experts in the law and the Pharisees began to oppose him bitterly, and to ask him hostile questions about many things, 11:54 plotting against him, to catch him in something he might say.

tn Or “the scribes.” See the note on the phrase “experts in the law” in 5:21.

tn Or “terribly.”

tn For this term see L&N 33.183.

tn Grk “lying in ambush against,” but this is a figurative extension of that meaning.

tn This term was often used in a hunting context (BDAG 455 s.v. θηρεύω; L&N 27.30). Later examples of this appear in Luke 20.
