Acts 8:9

Context

8:9 Now in that city was a man named Simon, who had been practicing magic 1  and amazing the people of Samaria, claiming to be someone great.

Acts 8:21

Context
8:21 You have no share or part 2  in this matter 3  because your heart is not right before God!

1 tn On the idiom προϋπῆρχεν μαγεύων (prouphrcen mageuwn) meaning “had been practicing magic” see BDAG 889 s.v. προϋπάρχω.

2 tn The translation “share or part” is given by L&N 63.13.

3 tn Since the semantic range for λόγος (logos) is so broad, a number of different translations could be given for the prepositional phrase here. Something along the lines of “in this thing” would work well, but is too colloquial for the present translation.
