Acts 13:7

Context
13:7 who was with the proconsul 1  Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. The proconsul 2  summoned 3  Barnabas and Saul and wanted to hear 4  the word of God.

1 sn The proconsul was the Roman official who ruled over a province traditionally under the control of the Roman senate.

2 tn Grk “This one”; the referent (the proconsul) is specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Grk “summoning Barnabas and Saul, wanted to hear.” The participle προσκαλεσάμενος (proskalesameno") has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style.

4 sn The proconsul…wanted to hear the word of God. This description of Sergius Paulus portrays him as a sensitive, secular Gentile leader.
