Acts 26:6-7

Context
26:6 And now I stand here on trial 1  because of my hope in the promise made by God to our ancestors, 2  26:7 a promise 3  that our twelve tribes hope to attain as they earnestly serve God 4  night and day. Concerning this hope the Jews are accusing me, 5  Your Majesty! 6 

1 tn BDAG 568 s.v. κρίνω 5.a.α has “κρίνεσθαι ἐπί τινι be on trial because of a thing Ac 26:6.”

2 tn Or “forefathers”; Grk “fathers.”

3 tn Grk “to which [promise] our twelve tribes…” The antecedent of the relative pronoun (the promise in v. 6) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Or “earnestly worship.” The object of this service, God, is omitted but implied: BDAG 587 s.v. λατρεύω states, “Without the dat. of the one to whom service is given: ἐν ἐκτενείᾳ νύκτα κ. ἡμέραν λ. serve (God) earnestly night and day Ac 26:7.” Although clear from the context in Greek, “God” must be supplied as the recipient of the service for the modern English reader.

5 tn Grk “I am being accused by the Jews.” The passive construction was simplified by converting it to an active one in the translation.

6 tn Grk “O King!”
