NET © Notes

tn The imperfect verb ηὐκαίρουν (hukairoun) has been translated as a customary or habitual imperfect.

tn BDAG 406-7 s.v. εὐκαιρέω has “used to spend their time in nothing else than telling Ac 17:21.”

sn This is a parenthetical note by the author. The reference to newness may be pejorative.
