In Mark 3:30 there is a quote from Jesus, but at the end of the quote is an explanatory statment from the penman and not spoken by Jesus.
The final clause begins with [face=SPIonic]o(ti[/face]
Is this really the normal use here needing a translation of "because" or is it just setting apart the extra statement similar to a quotation mark?

My first instinct is to say "because". But it is possible that my instinct is informed by my familiarity with the NASB. ;)
I suppose it could be either way. I'd check a commentary but haven't any for Mark here.
