Acts 7:31-32

Context
7:31 When Moses saw it, he was amazed at the sight, and when he approached to investigate, there came the voice of the Lord, 7:32I am the God of your forefathers, 1  the God of Abraham, Isaac, 2  and Jacob.’ 3  Moses began to tremble and did not dare to look more closely. 4 

1 tn Or “ancestors”; Grk “fathers.”

2 tn Grk “and Isaac,” but καί (kai) has not been translated since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

3 sn A quotation from Exod 3:6. The phrase suggests the God of promise, the God of the nation.

4 tn Or “to investigate,” “to contemplate” (BDAG 522 s.v. κατανοέω 2).
