NET © Notes

tn Grk “Men brothers,” but this is both awkward and unnecessary in English.

tn Grk “sons”

tn Or “race.”

tn Grk “and those among you who fear God,” but this is practically a technical term for the category called God-fearers, Gentiles who worshiped the God of Israel and in many cases kept the Mosaic law, but did not take the final step of circumcision necessary to become a proselyte to Judaism. See further K. G. Kuhn, TDNT 6:732-34, 743-44. Note how Paul includes God-fearing Gentiles as recipients of this promise.

tn Grk “word.”
