NET © Notes

tn Grk “but Jesus, answering, said.” This construction with passive participle and finite verb is pleonastic (redundant) and has been simplified in the translation to “replied to him.”

tn Grk “Permit now.”

tn Grk “he”; the referent (John the Baptist) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Or “permitted him.”
