Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

Acts 27

Introduction

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 12

27:12 south-east. (a-33) Lit. 'looking down the south-west (wind) and down the north-west.' Down the wind is the point to which it blows.

Verse 17

27:17 frapping (b-8) Cables round the hull. Syrtis (c-18) * The dreaded quicksands of N. Africa.

Verse 21

27:21 hearkened (d-28) As 'obey,' ch. 5.32.

Verse 23

27:23 serve, (e-13) As ch. 7.7.

Verse 43

27:43 saving (a-6) 'Save out of and through' a danger. see 1 Peter 3:20 .
