Luke 1:19

Context
1:19 The 1  angel answered him, “I am Gabriel, who stands 2  in the presence of God, and I was sent to speak to you and to bring 3  you this good news.

Luke 1:28

Context
1:28 The 4  angel 5  came 6  to her and said, “Greetings, favored one, 7  the Lord is with you!” 8 

1 tn Grk “And the.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

2 tn Grk “the one who is standing before God.”

3 tn Grk “to announce these things of good news to you.”

4 tn Grk “And coming to her.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

5 tn Grk “And coming to her, he said”; the referent (the angel) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

6 tn Grk “coming to her, he said.” The participle εἰσελθών (eiselqwn) has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style.

7 tn The address, “favored one” (a perfect participle, Grk “Oh one who is favored”) points to Mary as the recipient of God’s grace, not a bestower of it. She is a model saint in this passage, one who willingly receives God’s benefits. The Vulgate rendering “full of grace” suggests something more of Mary as a bestower of grace, but does not make sense here contextually.

8 tc Most mss (A C D Θ Ë13 33 Ï latt sy) read here εὐλογημένη σὺ ἐν γυναιξίν (euloghmenh su en gunaixin, “blessed are you among women”) which also appears in 1:42 (where it is textually certain). This has the earmarks of a scribal addition for balance; the shorter reading, attested by the most important witnesses and several others (א B L W Ψ Ë1 565 579 700 1241 pc co), is thus preferred.
