JND Translation Notes

+
c
It is well to notice here an habitual use of the article. It is a known rule that contrast, and hence one part of a thing as contradistinguished from another, has the article. This is the case with "ship" and "mountain" in the gospels. "he was" or "went" "on board ship"; not a particular ship, but "on board ship," as we say, in contrast with "on shore." So "the mountain"; not a particular mountain, but in contrast with the plain, where the plain and the mountain are in contrast. Christ had a particular ship which waited on him, but the article is used, as here, where that is not the case. "In the ship with" is tantamount to "the same ship"; so here I do not change the form, but translate literally.
