Acts 7:11

Context
7:11 Then a famine occurred throughout 1  Egypt and Canaan, causing 2  great suffering, and our 3  ancestors 4  could not find food.

1 tn Grk “came upon all Egypt.”

2 tn Grk “and,” but logically causal.

3 sn Our. Stephen spoke of “our” ancestors (Grk “fathers”) in an inclusive sense throughout the speech until his rebuke in v. 51, where the nation does what “your” ancestors did, at which point an exclusive pronoun is used. This serves to emphasize the rebuke.

4 tn Or “forefathers”; Grk “fathers.”
