    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:50

    Mas los judíos concitaron mujeres pías y honestas, y a los principales de la ciudad, y levantaron persecucin contra Pablo y Bernab, y los echaron de sus trminos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 13:50

    Verse 50.
    Devout and honourable women] It is likely that these were heathen matrons, who had become proselytes to the Jewish religion; and, as they were persons of affluence and respectability, they had considerable influence with the civil magistracy of the place, and probably their husbands were of this order; and it is likely that they used that influence, at the instigation of the Jews, to get the apostles expelled from the place.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 50. But the
    Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women , etc.] These seem not to be Jewish women; could they be thought to be such, they might easily be concluded to be of the sect of the Pharisees, which was the strictest and most devout sect among the Jews; for there were women Pharisees, as well as men; so we read of hwrp ha , a woman Pharisee f699 ; but these were Gentile women, proselyted to the Jewish religion, and were in their way very religious and devout, and were also honourable: the word used signifies, not only that they were of a comely form, of a decent habit, and of good manners, as it is by some interpreted; but that they were persons of figure and distinction, of good families; the Syriac version renders it rich, whose husbands were the principal men of the city; wherefore the Jews applied to these women, and stirred up them to work upon their husbands, who seem to be those next mentioned: and the chief men of the city ; the magistrates and officers in it: and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas ; raised the mob, and set them upon them: and expelled them out of their coasts ; drove them out of their city and suburbs.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 42-52 - The
    Jews opposed the doctrine the apostles preached; and when the could find no objection, they blasphemed Christ and his gospel Commonly those who begin with contradicting, end with blaspheming. But when adversaries of Christ's cause are daring, its advocates should be the bolder. And while many judge themselves unworthy of eternal life others, who appear less likely, desire to hear more of the glad tiding of salvation. This is according to what was foretold in the Ol Testament. What light, what power, what a treasure does this gospe bring with it! How excellent are its truths, its precepts, it promises! Those came to Christ whom the Father drew, and to whom the Spirit made the gospel call effectual, Ro 8:30. As many as wer disposed to eternal life, as many as had concern about their eterna state, and aimed to make sure of eternal life, believed in Christ, i whom God has treasured up that life, and who is the only Way to it; an it was the grace of God that wrought it in them. It is good to se honourable women devout; the less they have to do in the world, the more they should do for their own souls, and the souls of others: but it is sad, when, under colour of devotion to God, they try to sho hatred to Christ. And the more we relish the comforts an encouragements we meet with in the power of godliness, and the fulle our hearts are of them, the better prepared we are to face difficultie in the profession of godliness __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    50.
    Honorable (euschmonav). See on Mark xv. 43. Women of rank, or, as Rev., of honorable state.

    Coasts (oriwn). Not a good rendering, because it implies merely a sea-coast; whereas the word is a general one for boundaries.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    13:50 {Urged on} (parwtrunan). First aorist (effective) active of par-otrunw, old verb, but here alone in the N.T., to incite, to stir up. The Jews were apparently not numerous in this city as they had only one synagogue, but they had influence with people of prominence, like "the devout women of honorable estate" (tas sebomenas gunaikas tas euscemonas), the female convert of high station, a late use of an old word used about Joseph of Arimathea (#Mr 15:43). The rabbis went after these Gentile women who had embraced Judaism (cf. #Ac 17:4 in Thessalonica) as Paul had made an appeal to them. The prominence of women in public life here at Antioch is quite in accord with what we know of conditions in the cities of Asia Minor. "Thus women were appointed under the empire as civil officers, as presidents of the games, and even the Jews elected a woman as Archisynagogos, at least in one instance at Smyrna" (Knowling). In Damascus Josephus (_War_ II. 20, 21) says that a majority of the married women were convert. Strabo (VIII. 2) and Juvenal (VI. 542) speak of the addiction of women to the Jewish religion. {The chief men of the city} (tous prwtous tes polews). Probably city officials (the Duumviri, the Praetors, the First Ten in the Greek Cities of the east) or other "foremost" men, not officials. The rabbis were shrewd enough to reach these men (not convert) through the women who were convert of distinction. {Stirred up a persecution} (epegeiran diwgmon). First aorist active indicative of epegeirw, old verb, but in the N.T. only here and #14:2. Paul seems to allude to this persecution in #2Ti 3:11 "persecutions, sufferings, what things befell me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra, what persecutions I endured." Here Paul had perils from his own countrymen and perils from the Gentiles after the perils of rivers and perils of robbers on the way from Perga (#2Co 11:26). He was thrice beaten with rods (tris erhabdisqen, #2Co 11:25) by Roman lictors in some Roman colony. If that was here, qen Paul and Barnabas were publicly scourged by the lictors before they left. Probably the Jews succeeded in making the Roman officials look on Paul and Barnabas as disturbers of the public peace. So "they cast them out of their borders" (exebalon autous apo twn horiwn autwn). Second aorist active indicative of ekballw, forcible expulsion plainly as public nuisances. Just a few days before they were the heroes of the city and now!
