Luke 19:13-14

19:13 And he summoned ten of his slaves, 1  gave them ten minas, 2  and said to them, ‘Do business with these until I come back.’ 19:14 But his citizens 3  hated 4  him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man 5  to be king 6  over us!’

1 tn See the note on the word “slave” in 7:2.

2 sn That is, one for each. A mina was a Greek monetary unit worth one hundred denarii or about four months’ wages for an average worker based on a six-day work week.

3 tn Or “subjects.” Technically these people were not his subjects yet, but would be upon his return. They were citizens of his country who opposed his appointment as their king; later the newly-appointed king will refer to them as his “enemies” (v. 27).

4 tn The imperfect is intense in this context, suggesting an ongoing attitude.

5 tn Grk “this one” (somewhat derogatory in this context).

6 tn Or “to rule.”
