NET © Notes

tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

tn The dative indirect object (αὐταῖς, autais) was converted into the subject (“they”) as this more closely approximates English usage. The following ἵ῞να (Jina) is taken as substantival, introducing a direct object clause. In this case, because it is reported speech, the ἵνα is similar to the declarative ὅτι (Joti).

tn Grk “men”; but ἄνθρωπος (anqrwpo") is used in a generic sense here of both men and women.

tn The article τῶν (twn) has been translated as a possessive pronoun here (ExSyn 215).
