Acts 5:35

Context
5:35 Then he said to the council, 1  “Men of Israel, 2  pay close attention to 3  what you are about to do to these men.

1 tn Grk “said to them”; the referent (the council) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

2 tn Or “Israelite men,” although this is less natural English. The Greek term here is ἀνήρ (anhr), which only exceptionally is used in a generic sense of both males and females. In this context, it is highly unlikely that this is a generic usage, since Gamaliel was addressing the Sanhedrin, the Jewish high council, which would have been exclusively male.

3 tn Or “men, be careful.”
