Luke 7:8


For I too am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me. 1  I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, 2  and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 3

NET © Notes

tn Grk “having soldiers under me.”

sn I say to this one,Go,and he goes. The illustrations highlight the view of authority the soldier sees in the word of one who has authority. Since the centurion was a commander of a hundred soldiers, he understood what it was both to command others and to be obeyed.

tn The word “it” is not in the Greek text, but is implied. Direct objects were frequently omitted in Greek when clear from the context.
