Acts 7:12

Context
7:12 So when Jacob heard that there was grain 1  in Egypt, he sent our ancestors 2  there 3  the first time.

1 tn Or possibly “food,” since in a number of extrabiblical contexts the phrase σιτία καὶ ποτά (sitia kai pota) means “food and drink,” where solid food is contrasted with liquid nourishment (L&N 3.42).

2 tn Or “forefathers”; Grk “fathers.”

3 tn The word “there” is not in the Greek text. Direct objects were often omitted in Greek when clear from the context, but must be supplied for the modern English reader.
