NET © Notes

tn The ἵνα (Jina) clause, insofar as it is related to the first imperative, has the force of an imperative.

tn The idea of eating “your fill” is evident in the context with the use of χορτάζω (cortazw) in v. 21.

tn Grk “chiliarchs”; normally a chiliarch was a military officer commanding a thousand soldiers, but here probably used of higher-ranking commanders like generals (see L&N 55.15; cf. Rev 6:15).

tn See the note on the word “servants” in 1:1.
