Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 26:17 - 26:17


(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Delivering thee (exairoumenos se). Present middle participle of exaireō, old verb and usually so rendered, but the old Greek also uses it for “choose” as also in lxx (Isaiah 48:10). The papyri give examples of both meanings and either makes good sense here. God was continually rescuing Paul “out of the hands of Jews and Gentiles and Paul was a chosen vessel” (Act 9:15). Modern scholars are also divided.
