    Ac 12:17; 19:33; 21:40

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:16

    Entonces Pablo, levantndose, hecha seal de silencio con la mano, dice: Varones israelitas, y los que temis a Dios, oíd:

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 13:16

    Verse 16.
    Men of Israel] Ye that are Jews by birth; and ye that fear God-ye that are proselytes to the Jewish religion. In this discourse Paul proves that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, sent from God, not only for the salvation of the Jews, but of the whole human race. And this he does, not with the rhetorician's arts, but in a plain, simple detail of the history of Christ, and the most remarkable transactions of the people of God, which referred to his manifestation in the flesh. Rosenmuller.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. Then
    Paul stood up , etc.] Not so much that he might be heard; or merely out of reverence and respect to the rulers, and the people; but to show that he accepted the invitation; as also in order to take his proper place in the synagogue, and sit down and teach, as was their custom: and beckoning with his hand ; to the people to be silent, and attend to what he had to say: said, men of Israel ; by whom are meant the proper Jews, the natural descendants of Jacob, whose name was Israel; this was accounted a very honourable character, and was a common form of address; (see Acts 2:22) and ye that fear God ; not as distinguishing some among the Israelites from the rest, as if there were some of them that did not fear God; for by these are meant, not Jews by birth, but proselytes, devout and religious men from among the Gentiles; who were proselyted to the Jewish religion, and attended with them in their synagogues on religious worship; and that there were such in this synagogue, is certain from ( Acts 13:43) and we find that sometimes the Jews distinguish the proselytes from the Israelites by this very character f666 : it is said, ( <19C801> Psalm 128:1) blessed is everyone that feareth the Lord, that walketh in his ways; he does not say blessed are the Israelites, blessed are the priests, blessed are the Levites, but blessed is everyone that feareth the Lord; yrgh wla these are the proselytes, for they fear the Lord of what proselyte is it said blessed? of the proselyte who is a proselyte of righteousness, and not of the Cuthites, of whom it is written, ( 2 Kings 17:33) but of a proselyte who fears the Lord, and walks in his ways; so ( Psalm 22:23 115:11) are interpreted by many Jewish writers f667 .

    Now to both these sort of persons, both to the proper Jews, and to the proselytes of righteousness, the apostle addresses himself, and desires they would give audience to what he had to say; which is as follows.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-31 - When we come together to worship God, we must do it, not only by praye and praise, but by the reading and hearing of the word of God. The bar reading of the Scriptures in public assemblies is not enough; the should be expounded, and the people exhorted out of them. This i helping people in doing that which is necessary to make the wor profitable, to apply it to themselves. Every thing is touched upon in this sermon, which might best prevail with Jews to receive and embrac Christ as the promised Messiah. And every view, however short or faint of the Lord's dealings with his church, reminds us of his mercy an long-suffering, and of man's ingratitude and perverseness. Paul passe from David to the Son of David, and shows that this Jesus is his promised Seed; a Saviour to do that for them, which the judges of ol could not do, to save them from their sins, their worst enemies. When the apostles preached Christ as the Saviour, they were so far from concealing his death, that they always preached Christ crucified. Ou complete separation from sin, is represented by our being buried with Christ. But he rose again from the dead, and saw no corruption: thi was the great truth to be preached.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    13:16 {Paul stood up} (anastas paulos). The Jewish custom was to sit while speaking (#Lu 4:20), but the Greek and Roman was to stand (#Ac 17:22). It is possible as Lewin (_Life of St. Paul_, Vol. 1, p. 141) suggests that here Paul stepped upon the platform and qen took his seat as he began to speak or he may have followed the Greek and Roman custom. Paul is the leader now and the more gifted speaker (#Ac 14:12), so that he responds to the courteous invitation of the rulers. {Beckoning} (kataseisas). First aorist active participle of kataseiw, old verb to shake down, a dramatic gesture for quiet and order like Peter in #12:17 and Paul on the steps of the tower of Antonia (#21:40). {And ye that fear God} (kai hoi foboumenoi ton qeon). Evidently large numbers of these Gentiles like Cornelius in Caesarea were present. They offered Paul a great opportunity for reaching the purely pagan Gentiles. this (verses #16-41) is the first full report of a sermon of Paul's that Luke has preserved for us. He is now a practised preacher of the gospel that he began proclaiming at Damascus, that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah of promise and the Savior of the whole world both Jew and Gentile if they will only believe on him and be saved. It is possible that Paul here based his sermon on the passages of the law and the prophets that had just been read. He uses two words from the LXX, one in verse #19 from #De 1:31 etrofoforesen (as a nursing-father bare he them), the reading of many old MSS. and the one preferred by the American Committee, the other in verse #17 from #Isa 1:2 huywsen (exalted). At any rate it is clear that Paul spoke in Greek so that all could understand his sermon. He may have written out notes of this sermon afterwards for Luke. The keynotes of Paul's theology as found in his Epistles appear in this sermon. It is interesting to observe the steady growth of Paul's Christology as he faced the great problems of his day. Here we see Paul's gospel for the Jews and the God-fearers (Gentiles friendly to the Jews).
