Acts 2:24

Context
2:24 But God raised him up, 1  having released 2  him from the pains 3  of death, because it was not possible for him to be held in its power. 4 

Acts 2:32

Context
2:32 This Jesus God raised up, and we are all witnesses of it. 5 

1 tn Grk “Whom God raised up.”

2 tn Or “having freed.”

3 sn The term translated pains is frequently used to describe pains associated with giving birth (see Rev 12:2). So there is irony here in the mixed metaphor.

4 tn Or “for him to be held by it” (in either case, “it” refers to death’s power).

5 tn Or “of him”; Grk “of which [or whom] we are all witnesses” (Acts 1:8).
