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

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

For the king knoweth of these things (epistatai gar peri toutōn ho basileus). Epistatai (present middle probably Ionic form of ephistēmi) is a literary word and suits well here (cf. Act 24:10).

Freely (parrēsiazomenos). Present middle participle, speaking fully, making a clean breast of it. From parrēsia (pan, rhēsis) (cf. Act 13:46).

Is hidden from him (lanthanein auton). Escapes his notice. Infinitive in indirect discourse after peithomai (I am persuaded).
