Simeon 1  has explained 2  how God first concerned himself 3  to select 4  from among the Gentiles 5  a people for his name.

NET © Notes

sn Simeon is a form of the apostle Peter’s Aramaic name. James uses Peter’s “Jewish” name here.

tn Or “reported,” “described.”

tn BDAG 378 s.v. ἐπισκέπτομαι 3 translates this phrase in Acts 15:14, “God concerned himself about winning a people fr. among the nations.”

tn Grk “to take,” but in the sense of selecting or choosing (accompanied by the preposition ἐκ [ek] plus a genitive specifying the group selected from) see Heb 5:1; also BDAG 584 s.v. λαμβάνω 6.

sn In the Greek text the expression “from among the Gentiles” is in emphatic position.
