Context
6:4 But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”

Acts 6:6

Context
6:6 They stood these men before the apostles, who prayed 1  and placed 2  their hands on them.

1 tn Literally this is a participle in the Greek text (προσευξάμενοι, proseuxamenoi). It could be translated as a finite verb (“and they prayed and placed their hands on them”) but much smoother English results if the entire coordinate clause is converted to a relative clause that refers back to the apostles.

sn Who prayed. The prayer indicates their acceptance and commissioning for ministry (cf. Deut 34:9).

2 tn Or “laid.”
