Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

Acts 8


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 10

8:10 This (a-13) Lit. 'This one.'

Verse 23

8:23 unrighteousness. (b-15) Or 'iniquity,' as ch. 1.18.

Verse 25

8:25 announced (c-16) A continuing work.

Verse 27

8:27 Ethiopian, (a-10) Lit. 'a man, an Ethiopian.'

Verse 32

8:32 this. (b-11) See Isaiah 53:7-8 , LXX.

Verse 37

8:37 (c-0) Ver. 37 in the Authorized Version is recognized as not genuine.

Verse 40

8:40 Azotus, (d-6) See Note e, Joshua 13:3 .
