NET © Notes

tn Grk “persuading.” The participle πείσας (peisa") has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style.

tn Or “misled.”

tn BDAG 472 s.v. ἱκανός 3.a has “of pers. ὄχλος a large crowdAc 11:24, 26; 19:26.”

map For location see JP1 D2; JP2 D2; JP3 D2; JP4 D2.

tn Grk “Asia”; see the note on this word in v. 22.

tn The participle λέγων (legwn) has been regarded as indicating instrumentality.

tn The words “at all” are not in the Greek text but are implied.

sn Gods made by hands are not gods at all. Paul preached against paganism’s idolatry. Here is a one-line summary of a speech like that in Acts 17:22-31.
