Acts 23:4


Those standing near him 1  said, “Do you dare insult 2  God’s high priest?”

NET © Notes

tn The word “him” is not in the Greek text but is implied.

tn L&N 33.393 has for λοιδορέω (loidorew) “to speak in a highly insulting manner – ‘to slander, to insult strongly, slander, insult.’”

sn Insult God’s high priest. Paul was close to violation of the Mosaic law with his response, as the citation from Exod 22:28 in v. 5 makes clear.
