Acts 8:30

Context
8:30 So Philip ran up 1  to it 2  and heard the man 3  reading Isaiah the prophet. He 4  asked him, 5  “Do you understand what you’re reading?”

1 tn The participle προσδραμών (prosdramwn) is regarded as attendant circumstance.

2 tn The words “to it” are not in the Greek text but are implied.

3 tn Grk “heard him”; the referent (the man) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Grk “and he.” Because of the length of the Greek sentence, the conjunction καί (kai) has not been translated here. Instead a new English sentence is begun.

5 tn Grk “he said”; but since what follows is a question, it is better English style to translate the introduction to the question “he asked him.”
