Acts 22:17-18

22:17 When 1  I returned to Jerusalem and was praying in the temple, I fell into a trance 2  22:18 and saw the Lord 3  saying to me, ‘Hurry and get out of Jerusalem quickly, because they will not accept your testimony about me.’

1 tn Grk “It happened to me that.” The introductory phrase ἐγένετο (egeneto, “it happened that”), common in Luke (69 times) and Acts (54 times), is redundant in contemporary English and has not been translated.

2 tn BDAG 309 s.v. ἔκστασις 2 has “γενέσθαι ἐν ἐκστάσει fall into a trance Ac 22:17.”

3 tn Or “Jesus”; Grk “him.” The referent (the Lord, cf. v. 19) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
