Acts 18:16


Then he had them forced away 1  from the judgment seat. 2 


Ps 76:10; Ro 13:3,4; Re 12:16

NET © Notes

tn Grk “driven away,” but this could result in a misunderstanding in English (“driven” as in a cart or wagon?). “Forced away” conveys the idea; Gallio rejected their complaint. In contemporary English terminology the case was “thrown out of court.” The verb ἀπήλασεν (aphlasen) has been translated as a causative since Gallio probably did not perform this action in person, but ordered his aides or officers to remove the plaintiffs.

sn See the note on the term judgment seat in 18:12.
