NET © Notes

tn BDAG 826 s.v. πλήν 1.d has “πλὴν ὅτι except thatAc 20:23.”

tn The verb διαμαρτύρομαι (diamarturomai) can mean “warn” (BDAG 233 s.v. διαμαρτύρομαι 2 has “solemnly urge, exhort, warn…w. dat. of pers. addressed”), and this meaning better fits the context here, although BDAG categorizes Acts 20:23 under the meaning “testify of, bear witness to” (s.v. 1).

tn The Greek text here reads κατὰ πόλιν (kata polin).

tn Grk “saying that,” but the participle λέγον (legon) is redundant in English and has not been translated.

tn Grk “bonds.”

tn Or “troubles,” “suffering.” See Acts 19:21; 21:4, 11.
