Acts 10:3

Context
10:3 About three o’clock one afternoon 1  he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God 2  who came in 3  and said to him, “Cornelius.”

Acts 10:13

Context
10:13 Then 4  a voice said 5  to him, “Get up, Peter; slaughter 6  and eat!”

1 tn Grk “at about the ninth hour of the day.” This would be the time for afternoon prayer.

2 tn Or “the angel of God.” Linguistically, “angel of God” is the same in both testaments (and thus, he is either “an angel of God” or “the angel of God” in both testaments). For arguments and implications, see ExSyn 252; M. J. Davidson, “Angels,” DJG, 9; W. G. MacDonald argues for “an angel” in both testaments: “Christology and ‘The Angel of the Lord’,” Current Issues in Biblical and Patristic Interpretation, 324-35.

3 tn The participles εἰσελθόντα (eiselqonta) and εἰπόντα (eiponta) are accusative, and thus best taken as adjectival participles modifying ἄγγελον (angelon): “an angel who came in and said.”

4 tn Grk “And there came.” The introductory phrase ἐγένετο (egeneto, “it happened that”), common in Luke (69 times) and Acts (54 times), is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

5 tn Grk “a voice to him”; the word “said” is not in the Greek text but is implied.

6 tn Or “kill.” Traditionally θῦσον (quson) is translated “kill,” but in the case of animals intended for food, “slaughter” is more appropriate.
