English term or phrase: For he suffered them for an example, preferring one another.
Hej,

Dette er en tekststump fra en udenlandsk udgave af Bibelen, fra Johannes evangeliet kapitel 4. Der står at Han ikke døbt lige så mange som sine disciple - For he suffered them for an example, preferring one another.

Er det ikke noget med at han ville være et eksempel for dem så de ikke hævdede sig over hinanden? Hvordan kan denne sætning oversættes? Jeg synes den er mærkeligt formuleret.

Jeg oversætter Johannes evangeliet til privat brug og er ikke oversætter. Min hobby er Mesoamerikansk arkæologi og oldskrifter.

Med venlig hilsen
John

Explanation:
It is the archaic form that is used in most English bibles. You will find it in other places in the good book.
