Acts 9:1

Context
The Conversion of Saul

9:1 Meanwhile Saul, still breathing out threats 1  to murder 2  the Lord’s disciples, went to the high priest

Acts 9:13

Context
9:13 But Ananias replied, 3  “Lord, I have heard from many people 4  about this man, how much harm he has done to your saints in Jerusalem,

1 tn Or “Saul, making dire threats.”

2 tn The expression “breathing out threats and murder” is an idiomatic expression for “making threats to murder” (see L&N 33.293). Although the two terms “threats” and “murder” are syntactically coordinate, the second is semantically subordinate to the first. In other words, the content of the threats is to murder the disciples.

3 sn Ananias replied. Past events might have suggested to Ananias that this was not good counsel, but like Peter in Acts 10, Ananias’ intuitions were wrong.

4 tn The word “people” is not in the Greek text, but is implied.
