Acts 18:9-10

18:9 The Lord said to Paul by a vision 1  in the night, 2  “Do not be afraid, 3  but speak and do not be silent, 18:10 because I am with you, and no one will assault 4  you to harm 5  you, because I have many people in this city.”

1 sn Frequently in Acts such a vision will tell the reader where events are headed. See Acts 10:9-16 and 16:9-10 for other accounts of visions.

2 tn BDAG 682 s.v. νύξ 1.c has “W. prep. ἐν ν. at night, in the nightAc 18:9.”

3 tn The present imperative here (with negation) is used (as it normally is) of a general condition (BDF §335).

4 tn BDAG 384 s.v. ἐπιτίθημι 2 has “to set upon, attack, lay a hand on” here, but “assault” is a contemporary English equivalent very close to the meaning of the original.

5 tn Or “injure.”
