2 Corinthians 11:32-33

Context
11:32 In Damascus, the governor 1  under King Aretas was guarding the city of Damascus 2  in order to arrest 3  me, 11:33 but I was let down in a rope-basket 4  through a window in the city wall, and escaped his hands.

1 tn Grk “ethnarch.”

sn The governor was an official called an ethnarch who was appointed to rule over a particular area or constituency on behalf of a king.

2 tn Grk “the city of the Damascenes.”

3 tn Or “to seize,” “to catch.”

4 tn In Acts 9:25 the same basket used in Paul’s escape is called a σπυρίς (spuri"), a basket larger than a κόφινος (kofinos). It was very likely made out of rope, so the translation “rope-basket” is used.
