Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 10:18 - 10:18

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Called (phò„nè„santes). In a loud voice that those inside the house might hear.

Asked (epunthanonto). Imperfect middle of punthanomai, old verb to make inquiry especially with an indirect question as here. Kept on inquiring. Westcott and Hort follow B C here and read eputhonto (second aorist middle, effective aorist). Either makes sense, though the imperfect is more picturesque.

Were lodging (xenizetai). Present middle indicative retained in indirect question. See note on Act 10:6for the verb.
