Acts 20:20

Context
20:20 You know that I did not hold back from proclaiming 1  to you anything that would be helpful, 2  and from teaching you publicly 3  and from house to house,

Acts 20:27

Context
20:27 For I did not hold back from 4  announcing 5  to you the whole purpose 6  of God.

1 tn Or “declaring.”

2 tn Or “profitable.” BDAG 960 s.v. συμφέρω 2.b.α has “τὰ συμφέροντα what advances your best interests or what is good for you Ac 20:20,” but the broader meaning (s.v. 2, “to be advantageous, help, confer a benefit, be profitable/useful”) is equally possible in this context.

3 tn Or “openly.”

4 tn Or “did not avoid.” BDAG 1041 s.v. ὑποστέλλω 2.b has “shrink from, avoid implying fear…οὐ γὰρ ὑπεστειλάμην τοῦ μὴ ἀναγγεῖλαι I did not shrink from proclaiming Ac 20:27”; L&N 13.160 has “to hold oneself back from doing something, with the implication of some fearful concern – ‘to hold back from, to shrink from, to avoid’…‘for I have not held back from announcing to you the whole purpose of God’ Ac 20:27.”

5 tn Or “proclaiming,” “declaring.”

6 tn Or “plan.”
