Acts 9:24

Context
9:24 but Saul learned of their plot against him. 1  They were also watching 2  the city gates 3  day and night so that they could kill him.

1 tn The words “against him” are implied, as suggested by L&N 30.71.

2 tn Or “guarding.” This is a negative term in Luke-Acts (Luke 6:7; 14:1; 20:20).

3 tn The word πύλη (pulh) may refer to a house door or gate, or to the large gates used in a palace, temple, or city wall. Here the context clearly indicates a reference to the latter, so the translation “city gates” is used.
