Luke 12:58


As you are going with your accuser before the magistrate, 1  make an effort to settle with him on the way, so that he will not drag you before the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, 2  and the officer throw you into prison.

NET © Notes

sn The term magistrate (ἄρχων, arcwn) refers to an official who, under the authority of the government, serves as judge in legal cases (see L&N 56.29).

sn The officer (πράκτωρ, praktwr) was a civil official who functioned like a bailiff and was in charge of debtor’s prison. The use of the term, however, does not automatically demand a Hellenistic setting (BDAG 859 s.v.; K. H. Rengstorf, TDNT 8:539; C. Maurer, TDNT 6:642).
