NET © Notes

tn Grk “behold.” The Greek word ἰδού (idou) has not been translated because it has no exact English equivalent here, but adds interest and emphasis (BDAG 468 s.v. 1).

tn That is, carried out for burial. This was a funeral procession.

tn Grk “and she.” The clause introduced by καί (kai) has been translated as a relative clause for the sake of English style.

sn The description of the woman as a widow would mean that she was now socially alone and without protection in 1st century Jewish culture.

tn Or “city.”
