Acts 4:11-12

Context
4:11 This Jesus 1  is the stone that was rejected by you, 2  the builders, that has become the cornerstone. 3  4:12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among people 4  by which we must 5  be saved.”

1 tn Grk “This one”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn The word “you” is inserted into the quotation because Peter is making a direct application of Ps 118:22 to his hearers. Because it is not in the OT, it has been left as normal type (rather than bold italic). The remarks are like Acts 2:22-24 and 3:12-15.

3 sn A quotation from Ps 118:22 which combines the theme of rejection with the theme of God’s vindication/exaltation.

4 tn Here ἀνθρώποις (anqrwpoi") has been translated as a generic noun (“people”).

5 sn Must be saved. The term used here (δεῖ, dei, “it is necessary”) reflects the necessity set up by God’s directive plan.
