Acts 11:18

Context
11:18 When they heard this, 1  they ceased their objections 2  and praised 3  God, saying, “So then, God has granted the repentance 4  that leads to life even to the Gentiles.” 5 

1 tn Grk “these things.”

2 tn Or “became silent,” but this would create an apparent contradiction with the subsequent action of praising God. The point, in context, is that they ceased objecting to what Peter had done.

3 tn Or “glorified.”

4 sn Here the summary phrase for responding to the gospel is the repentance that leads to life. Note how the presence of life is tied to the presence of the Spirit (cf. John 4:7-42; 7:37-39).

5 sn In the Greek text the phrase even to the Gentiles is in an emphatic position.
