Luke 6:9 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

I will ask (ἐπερωτήσω)

Peculiar to Luke's narrative. The best texts read ἐπερωτῶ, the present tense, I ask. So Rev.

Life (ψυχὴν)

Better as Rev., a life. Though the question is a general one, it carries a hint of an individual life thrown into it by the special case at hand. See on Mark 12:30. Wyc., to make a soul safe.
