Luke 6:39 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Can the blind (μήτι δυναται τυφλὸς)?

The interrogative particle expects a negative reply. Surely the blind cannot, etc.

Lead (ὁδηγεῖν)

Better, guide, as Rev., since the word combines the ideas of leading and instructing.

Shall they not (οὐχὶ)?

Another interrogative particle, this time expecting an affirmative answer.
