Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 11:13 - 11:13

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Standing and saying (stathenta kai eiponta). More precisely, “stand and say” (punctiliar act, first aorist passive and second aorist active participles).

Fetch Simon (metapempsai Simōna). First aorist middle imperative. Third time mentioned (Act 10:5, Act 10:22; Act 11:13). Perhaps Peter is anxious to make it plain that he did not go of his own initiative into the house of Cornelius. He went under God’s direct orders.
