Luke 7:38

Context
7:38 As 1  she stood 2  behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. She 3  wiped them with her hair, 4  kissed 5  them, 6  and anointed 7  them with the perfumed oil.

Luke 7:50

Context
7:50 He 8  said to the woman, “Your faith 9  has saved you; 10  go in peace.”

1 tn Grk “And standing.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

2 tn Grk “standing”; the participle στᾶσα (stasa) has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style.

3 tn Grk “tears, and she.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

4 tn Grk “with the hair of her head.”

5 tn Grk “and kissed,” but καί (kai) has not been translated since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

6 tn Grk “kissed his feet,” but this has been replaced by the pronoun “them” in keeping with contemporary English style.

7 sn The series of verbs in this verse detail the woman’s every move, much as if the onlookers were watching her every step. That she attended the meal is not so surprising, as teachers often ate an open meal where listeners were welcome, but for her to approach Jesus was unusual and took great nerve, especially given her reputation.

8 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

9 sn On faith see Luke 5:20; 7:9; 8:25; 12:28; 17:6; 18:8; 22:32.

10 sn The questioning did not stop Jesus. He declared authoritatively that the woman was forgiven by God (your faith has saved you). This event is a concrete example of Luke 5:31-32.
