Luke 12:48 New English Translation (NET Bible)

48 But the one who did not know his master’s will[a] and did things worthy of punishment[b] will receive a light beating.[c] From everyone who has been given much, much will be required,[d] and from the one who has been entrusted with much,[e] even more will be asked.[f]


  1. Luke 12:48 tn Grk “did not know”; the phrase “his master’s will” is not in the Greek text, but is implied. Direct objects were frequently omitted in Greek when clear from the context, but must be supplied for the contemporary English reader.
  2. Luke 12:48 tn Grk “blows.”
  3. Luke 12:48 tn Grk “will receive few (blows).”
  4. Luke 12:48 tn Grk “required from him,” but the words “from him” are redundant in English and have not been translated.
  5. Luke 12:48 sn Entrusted with much. To be gifted with precious responsibility is something that requires faithfulness.
  6. Luke 12:48 tn Grk “they will ask even more.”
