NET © Notes

sn The presence of the Lord indicated the vindicating presence and direction of God.

tn Grk “standing near Paul, said.” The participle ἐπιστάς (epistas) has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style.

tn Grk “him”; the referent (Paul) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Or “Do not be afraid.”
