    Y por tiempo como de cuarenta aos soport sus costumbres en el desierto;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 13:18

    Verse 18. About the
    time of forty years] The space of time between their coming out of Egypt, and going into the promised land.

    Suffered he their manners] etropoforhsen autouv; He dealt indulgently with them: howsoever they behaved towards him, he mercifully bore with, and kindly treated them. But instead of etropoforhsen, ACE, some others, with the Syriac, Arabic, Coptic, AEthiopic, and some of the fathers, read etrofoforhsen, which signifies, he nourished and fed them, or bore them about in his arms as a tender nurse does her child. This reading confirms the marginal conjecture, and agrees excellently with the scope of the place, and is a reading at least of equal value with that in the commonly received text. Griesbach has admitted it, and excluded the other. Both, when rightly understood, speak nearly the same sense; but the latter is the most expressive, and agrees best with Paul's discourse, and the history to which he alludes. See the same form of expression, Num. xi. 12; Exod. xix. 4; Isa. xlvi. 3, 4; lxiii. 9.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. And about the time of forty years , etc.] From their coming out of Egypt, to their entrance into the land of Canaan: suffered he their manners in the wilderness ; which were very perverse and provoking; as their murmuring for water, their rebellion against Moses and Aaron, their idolatry and the ill report brought on the good land by their spies; and yet the Lord fed them, and led them, and kept them as the apple of his eye: some think the true reading is etrofoforhsen , he bore, or fed them, as a nurse bears and feeds her children; and so the Syriac, Arabic, and Ethiopic versions render it, he nourished them; rained manna, and gave them quails from heaven, and furnished a table for them in the wilderness: and indeed, though there were instances of Gods patience and forbearance with them, yet certain it is, that as he was tempted and proved by them, so he was grieved with them during the forty years in the wilderness; and often let fall his vengeance upon them, by cutting off great numbers of them; and even the carcasses of all that generation that came out of Egypt fell in the wilderness; nor did any of them enter into the land of Cannan, but Joshua and Caleb.

    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.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    18.
    Suffered he their manners (etropoforhsen). From propov, fashion or manner, and forew, to bear or suffer. The preferable reading, however, is ejtrofoforhsen; from trofov, a nurse; and the figure is explained by, and probably was drawn from, Deut. i. 31. The American revisers properly insist on the rendering, as a nursing-father bare he them.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    13:18 {
    Suffered he their manners} (etropoforesen). First aorist active indicative of tropoforew, late word from tropos, manner, and ferw, reading of Aleph B D and accepted by Westcott and Hort. But A C Sahidic Bohairic read etrofoforesen from trofoforew (trofos, a nurse, and ferw,) late word (II Macc. 7:27), probably correct word here and #De 1:31.
