XREF

2Ki 4:29-31; 2Ki 13:20,21; Ac 5:15

NET © Notes

tn Or “skin” (the outer surface of the body).

tn Or “were taken.” It might be that as word went out into the region that since the sick could not come to Paul, healing was brought to them this way. The “handkerchiefs” are probably face cloths for wiping perspiration (see BDAG 934 s.v. σουδάριον) while the “aprons” might be material worn by workmen (BDAG 923-24 s.v. σιμικίνθιον).

tn The words “of them” are not in the Greek text, but are implied.
