Acts 13:26

Context
13:26 Brothers, 1  descendants 2  of Abraham’s family, 3  and those Gentiles among you who fear God, 4  the message 5  of this salvation has been sent to us.

1 tn Grk “Men brothers,” but this is both awkward and unnecessary in English.

2 tn Grk “sons”

3 tn Or “race.”

4 tn Grk “and those among you who fear God,” but this is practically a technical term for the category called God-fearers, Gentiles who worshiped the God of Israel and in many cases kept the Mosaic law, but did not take the final step of circumcision necessary to become a proselyte to Judaism. See further K. G. Kuhn, TDNT 6:732-34, 743-44. Note how Paul includes God-fearing Gentiles as recipients of this promise.

5 tn Grk “word.”
