Acts 5:30-32

5:30 The God of our forefathers 1  raised up Jesus, whom you seized and killed by hanging him on a tree. 2  5:31 God exalted him 3  to his right hand as Leader 4  and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. 5  5:32 And we are witnesses of these events, 6  and so is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey 7  him.”

1 tn Or “ancestors”; Grk “fathers.”

2 tn Or “by crucifying him” (“hang on a tree” is by the time of the first century an idiom for crucifixion). The allusion is to the judgment against Jesus as a rebellious figure, appealing to the language of Deut 21:23. The Jewish leadership has badly “misjudged” Jesus.

3 tn Grk “This one God exalted” (emphatic).

4 tn Or “Founder” (of a movement).

5 tn Or “to give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israel.”

6 tn Or “things.” They are preaching these things even to the hostile leadership.

7 sn Those who obey. The implication, of course, is that the leadership is disobeying God.
