NET © Notes

tn Grk “from among men,” but since the point in context is shared humanity (rather than shared maleness), the plural Greek term ἀνθρώπων (anqrwpwn) has been translated “people.”

tn Grk “who is taken from among people is appointed.”

tn Grk “appointed on behalf of people in reference to things relating to God.”
