Acts 9:27

Context
9:27 But Barnabas took 1  Saul, 2  brought 3  him to the apostles, and related to them how he had seen the Lord on the road, that 4  the Lord had spoken to him, and how in Damascus he had spoken out boldly 5  in the name of Jesus.

1 tn Grk “taking Saul, brought him.” The participle ἐπιλαβόμενος (epilabomeno") has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style.

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

3 tn Grk “and brought,” but καί (kai) has not been translated since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

4 tn Grk “and that,” but καί (kai) has not been translated since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

5 tn On this verb which is used 7 times in Acts, see BDAG 782 s.v. παρρησιάζομαι 1. See also v. 28.
