    VERSE (14) -
    :10; 9:25,30 Mt 10:23

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:14

    Pero luego los hermanos enviaron a Pablo que fuese hacia el mar; y Silas y Timoteo se quedaron allí.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 17:14

    Verse 14. To go as it were to the
    sea] This passage is generally understood to mean that the disciples took Paul towards the sea, as if he had intended to embark, and return to Troas, but with the real design to go to Athens. But it is more likely that his conductors, in order to his greater safety, left the public or more frequented road, and took him coastwise to Athens. Or, by taking a vessel at that part of the sea nearest to Berea, they might have coasted it to Athens, which was quite a possible case; and, as we do not hear of his stopping at any place on his journey to preach, it is very probable that he went by sea to this city. Though sleights and feints may be allowable in cases of life and death, yet there does not appear an absolute necessity for any in this case. And, as the text does not necessarily point any out, so we need not have recourse to any. I take it for granted, therefore, that Paul went by sea to Athens.

    Silas and Timotheus abode there still .] The persecution, it seems, was directed principally against Paul. Lo! he stayeth his rough wind on the day of his east wind. Silas and Timotheus, holy men, were left behind to water the seed which Paul had planted.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. And then immediately the brethren , etc.] That were at Berea, the new converts there: sent away Paul , whom they knew the Jews mostly sought after, and were offended with: to go as it were to the sea ; the Aegean sea, or Archipelago, near to which Berea was: this seems to have been done, in order to make the people conclude that he intended to take shipping, and go into some other parts of the world, when the design was to go to Athens by foot, and so be safe from any lying in wait of his persecutors: the Alexandrian copy, the Vulgate Latin, and the Oriental versions read, to go to the sea; to the sea side, whither it seems he did go; and yet it looks as if he did not go by sea, but by land, to Athens: but Silas and Timotheus abode there still ; at Berea, to confirm and strengthen the young converts there made.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-15 - The
    Jews in Berea applied seriously to the study of the word preache unto them. They not only heard Paul preach on the sabbath, but dail searched the Scriptures, and compared what they read with the fact related to them. The doctrine of Christ does not fear inquiry advocates for his cause desire no more than that people will fully an fairly examine whether things are so or not. Those are truly noble, an likely to be more and more so, who make the Scriptures their rule, an consult them accordingly. May all the hearers of the gospel become lik those of Berea, receiving the word with readiness of mind, an searching the Scriptures daily, whether the things preached to them ar so.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    17:14 {And qen immediately} (euqews de
    tote). They acted swiftly as in Thessalonica. {Sent forth} (exapesteilan). Double compound (ex, apo, both out and away) common in late Greek. First aorist active indicative (exapostellw, liquid verb). Same form in #9:30. {As far as to the sea} (hews epi ten qalassan). It is not clear whether Paul went all the way to Athens by land or took ship at Dium or Pydna, some sixteen miles away, and sailed to Athens. Some even think that Paul gave the Jews the slip and went all the way by land when they expected him to go by sea. At any rate we know that Paul was grieved to cut short his work in Macedonia, probably not over six months in all, which had been so fruitful in Philippi, Thessalonica, and Beroea. Silas and Timothy (note his presence) remained behind in Beroea and they would keep the work going. Paul no doubt hoped to return soon. Silas and Timothy in Beroea would also serve to screen his flight for the Jews wanted his blood, not theirs. The work in Macedonia spread widely (#1Th 1:7f.).
