Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

Acts 21


1:2 up; (a-21) The word means 'receiving,' but with the prefix ( ana ) 'up,' as here, it has the active sense of 'taking up.' It is so translated except in 1 Timothy 3:16 . The more passive reception is seen in Acts 3:21 , where another word is used.

Verse 1

21:1 away (f-5) An expression of effort. 'torn ourselves away' may be too strong, but it implies force.

Verse 4

21:4 out (a-4) Lit. 'diligently searched out,' as Luke 2:16 . who (b-12) Who indeed.

Verse 16

21:16 whom (c-23) Or 'to bring us to a certain Mnason, a Cyprian, an old disciple with whom.'

Verse 28

21:28 Israelites, (a-2) Lit. 'Men Israelites.'

Verse 31

21:31 chiliarch (b-14) Commander of 1,000 men.

Verse 39

21:39 Jew (c-7) Lit. 'a man a Jew.'
