Acts 22:7

22:7 Then I 1  fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’

Acts 9:4

9:4 He 2  fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, 3  why are you persecuting me?” 4 

1 tn This is a continuation of the same sentence in Greek using the connective τέ (te), but due to the length and complexity of the Greek sentence a new sentence was begun in the translation here. To indicate the logical sequence for the modern English reader, τέ was translated as “then.”

2 tn Grk “and he.” Because of the length of the Greek sentence, the conjunction καί (kai) has not been translated here. Instead a new English sentence is begun.

3 tn The double vocative suggests emotion.

4 sn Persecuting me. To persecute the church is to persecute Jesus.
