Acts 13:19-20

Context
13:19 After 1  he had destroyed 2  seven nations 3  in the land of Canaan, he gave his people their land as an inheritance. 4  13:20 All this took 5  about four hundred fifty years. After this 6  he gave them judges until the time of 7  Samuel the prophet.

1 tn Grk “And after.” 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.

2 tn The participle καθελών (kaqelwn) is taken temporally.

3 sn Seven nations. See Deut 7:1.

4 tn Grk “he gave their land as an inheritance.” The words “his people” are supplied to complete an ellipsis specifying the recipients of the land.

5 tn The words “all this took” are not in the Greek text, but are supplied to make a complete statement in English. There is debate over where this period of 450 years fits and what it includes: (1) It could include the years in Egypt, the conquest of Canaan, and the distribution of the land; (2) some connect it with the following period of the judges. This latter approach seems to conflict with 1 Kgs 6:1; see also Josephus, Ant. 8.3.1 (8.61).

6 tn Grk “And after these things.” 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.

7 tn The words “the time of” are not in the Greek text, but are implied.
