Acts 5:29

Context
5:29 But Peter and the apostles replied, 1  “We must obey 2  God rather than people. 3 

Acts 16:31

Context
16:31 They replied, 4  “Believe 5  in the Lord Jesus 6  and you will be saved, you and your household.”

1 tn Grk “apostles answered and said.”

2 sn Obey. See 4:19. This response has Jewish roots (Dan 3:16-18; 2 Macc 7:2; Josephus, Ant. 17.6.3 [17.159].

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

4 tn Grk “said.”

5 sn Here the summary term of response is a call to believe. In this context it refers to trusting the sovereign God’s power to deliver, which events had just pictured for the jailer.

6 tc The majority of mss add Χριστόν (Criston, “Christ”) here (C D E Ψ 1739 Ï sy sa), but the best and earliest witnesses read simply τὸν κύριον ᾿Ιησοῦν (ton kurion Ihsoun, “the Lord Jesus”; Ì74vid א A B 33 81 pc bo). The addition of “Christ” to “Lord Jesus” is an obviously motivated reading. Thus on both external and internal grounds, the shorter reading is strongly preferred.
