Acts 20:25

Context

20:25 “And now 1  I know that none 2  of you among whom I went around proclaiming the kingdom 3  will see me 4  again.

Acts 20:27

Context
20:27 For I did not hold back from 5  announcing 6  to you the whole purpose 7  of God.

1 tn Grk “And now, behold.” Here ἰδού (idou) has not been translated.

2 tn Grk “all of you…will not see.” Greek handles its negation somewhat differently from English, and the translation follows English grammatical conventions.

3 sn Note how Paul’s usage of the expression proclaiming the kingdom is associated with (and intertwined with) his testifying to the good news of God’s grace in v. 24. For Paul the two concepts were interrelated.

4 tn Grk “will see my face” (an idiom for seeing someone in person).

5 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.”

6 tn Or “proclaiming,” “declaring.”

7 tn Or “plan.”
