Acts 21:39

21:39 Paul answered, 1  “I am a Jew 2  from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of an important city. 3  Please 4  allow me to speak to the people.”

1 tn Grk “said.”

2 tn Grk “a Jewish man.”

3 tn Grk “of a not insignificant city.” The double negative, common in Greek, is awkward in English and has been replaced by a corresponding positive expression (BDAG 142 s.v. ἄσημος 1).

4 tn Grk “I beg you.”
