Acts 15:23

15:23 They sent this letter with them: 1 

From the apostles 2  and elders, your brothers, 3  to the Gentile brothers and sisters 4  in Antioch, 5  Syria, 6  and Cilicia, greetings!

Acts 15:41

15:41 He passed through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening 7  the churches.

1 tn Grk “writing by their hand” (an idiom for sending a letter).

2 tn Grk “The apostles.” The word “from” is not in the Greek text, but has been supplied to indicate the sender of the letter.

3 tn Grk “brothers,” but “your” is supplied to specify the relationship, since without it “brothers” could be understood as vocative in English.

4 tn Grk “to the brothers who are from the Gentiles.”

5 sn Antioch was a city in Syria (not Antioch in Pisidia).

6 tn Grk “and Syria,” but καί (kai) has not been translated since English normally uses a coordinating conjunction only between the last two elements in a series of three or more.

7 sn Strengthening. See Acts 14:22; 15:32; 18:23.
