Acts 9:14

Context
9:14 and here he has authority from the chief priests to imprison 1  all who call on your name!” 2 

Acts 9:21

Context
9:21 All 3  who heard him were amazed and were saying, “Is this not 4  the man who in Jerusalem was ravaging 5  those who call on this name, and who had come here to bring them as prisoners 6  to the chief priests?”

1 tn Grk “to bind.”

2 sn The expression “those who call on your name” is a frequent description of believers (Acts 2:21; 1 Cor 1:2; Rom 10:13).

3 tn Grk “And all.” Because of the difference between Greek style, which often begins sentences or clauses with “and,” and English style, which generally does not, καί (kai) has not been translated here.

4 tn The Greek interrogative particle used in this verse (οὐχ, ouc) expects a positive reply. They all knew about Saul’s persecutions.

5 tn Normally, “destroying,” but compare 4 Macc 4:23; 11:4 and MM 529 s.v. πορθέω for examples from Koine papyri. See also BDAG 853 s.v. πορθέω.

6 tn Grk “bring them bound”; the translation “bring someone as prisoner” for δεδεμένον ἄγειν τινά (dedemenon agein tina) is given by BDAG 221 s.v. δέω 1.b.
