NET © Notes

tn Or “know your suffering.” This could refer to suffering or distress caused by persecution (see L&N 22.2).

tn Because of the length and complexity of this Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation by supplying the phrase “I also know” to link this English sentence back to “I know” at the beginning of the verse.

tn The words “against you” are not in the Greek text, but are implied.

sn A synagogue was a place for Jewish prayer and worship, with recognized leadership (e.g., Mt 4:23, Mk 1:21, Lk 4:15, Jn 6:59).
