Acts 23:11


23:11 The following night the Lord 1  stood near 2  Paul 3  and said, “Have courage, 4  for just as you have testified about me in Jerusalem, 5  so you must also testify in Rome.” 6 

1 sn The presence of the Lord indicated the vindicating presence and direction of God.

2 tn Grk “standing near Paul, said.” The participle ἐπιστάς (epistas) has been translated as a finite verb due to requirements of contemporary English style.

3 tn Grk “him”; the referent (Paul) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Or “Do not be afraid.”
