NET © Notes

tn The word “this” is used to translate the Greek article τῆς (ths), bringing out its demonstrative force.

tn The word “aloud” has been supplied to indicate that in the original historical setting reading would usually refer to reading out loud in public rather than silently to oneself.

tn The words “blessed are” are repeated from the beginning of this verse for stylistic reasons and for clarity.

tn Grk “keep.” L&N 36.19 has “to continue to obey orders or commandments – ‘to obey, to keep commandments, obedience.’”

sn The time refers to the time when the things prophesied would happen.
