Acts 22:14

Context
22:14 Then he said, ‘The God of our ancestors 1  has already chosen 2  you to know his will, to see 3  the Righteous One, 4  and to hear a command 5  from his mouth,

Acts 22:18

Context
22:18 and saw the Lord 6  saying to me, ‘Hurry and get out of Jerusalem quickly, because they will not accept your testimony about me.’

1 tn Or “forefathers”; Grk “fathers.”

sn The expression God of our ancestors is a description of the God of Israel. The God of promise was at work again.

2 tn L&N 30.89 has “‘to choose in advance, to select beforehand, to designate in advance’…‘the God of our ancestors has already chosen you to know his will’ Ac 22:14.”

3 tn Grk “and to see.” This 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.

4 sn The Righteous One is a reference to Jesus Christ (Acts 3:14).

5 tn Or “a solemn declaration”; Grk “a voice.” BDAG 1071-72 s.v. φωνή 2.c states, “that which the voice gives expression to: call, cry, outcry, loud or solemn declaration (… = order, command)…Cp. 22:14; 24:21.”

6 tn Or “Jesus”; Grk “him.” The referent (the Lord, cf. v. 19) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
