Acts 9:17

Context
9:17 So Ananias departed and entered the house, placed 1  his hands on Saul 2  and said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came here, 3  has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” 4 

1 tn Grk “and placing his hands on Saul, he said.” The participle ἐπιθείς (epiqei") has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style. For the same reason καί (kai) has not been translated before the participle.

2 tn Grk “on him”; the referent (Saul) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 tn Grk “on the road in which you came,” but the relative clause makes for awkward English style, so it was translated as a temporal clause (“as you came here”).

4 sn Be filled with the Holy Spirit. Here someone who is not an apostle (Ananias) commissions another person with the Spirit.
