NET © Notes

tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

sn See the note on crucified in 20:19.

tn Grk “by throwing the lot” (probably by using marked pebbles or broken pieces of pottery). A modern equivalent, “throwing dice,” was chosen here because of its association with gambling. According to L&N 6.219 a term for “dice” is particularly appropriate.
