NET © Notes

tn The participle προσδραμών (prosdramwn) is regarded as attendant circumstance.

tn The words “to it” are not in the Greek text but are implied.

tn Grk “heard him”; the referent (the man) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Grk “and he.” Because of the length of the Greek sentence, the conjunction καί (kai) has not been translated here. Instead a new English sentence is begun.

tn Grk “he said”; but since what follows is a question, it is better English style to translate the introduction to the question “he asked him.”
