NET © Notes

tn Grk “his eyes being open,” a genitive absolute construction that has been translated as a concessive adverbial participle.

sn He could see nothing. This sign of blindness, which was temporary until v. 18, is like the sign of deafness experienced by Zechariah in Luke 1. It allowed some time for Saul (Paul) to reflect on what had happened without distractions.

tn Grk “they”; the referents (Saul’s companions) have been specified in the translation for clarity.
