Acts 22:21-22

Context
22:21 Then 1  he said to me, ‘Go, because I will send you far away to the Gentiles.’”

The Roman Commander Questions Paul

22:22 The crowd 2  was listening to him until he said this. 3  Then 4  they raised their voices and shouted, 5  “Away with this man 6  from the earth! For he should not be allowed to live!” 7 

1 tn Grk “And.” Since this represents a response to Paul’s reply in v. 19, καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the logical sequence.

2 tn Grk “They were listening”; the referent (the crowd) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Grk “until this word.”

sn Until he said this. Note it is the mention of Paul’s mission to the Gentiles with its implication of ethnic openness that is so disturbing to the audience.

4 tn Grk “And.” To indicate the logical sequence, καί (kai) has been translated as “then” here.

5 tn Grk “and said.”

6 tn Grk “this one.”

7 tn BDAG 491 s.v. καθήκω has “to be appropriate, come/reach to, be proper/fitting…Usu. impers. καθήκει it comes (to someone)…foll. by acc. and inf….οὐ καθῆκεν αὐτὸν ζῆν he should not be allowed to live Ac 22:22.”
