    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:5

    ¶ (Moraban entonces en Jerusaln judíos, varones religiosos, de todas las naciones que estn debajo del cielo.)

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 2:5

    Verse 5.
    Devout men, out of every nation] Either by these we are simply to understand Jews who were born in different countries, and had now come up to Jerusalem to be present at the passover, and for purposes of traffic, or proselytes to Judaism, who had come up for the same purpose: for I cannot suppose that the term andrev eulabeiv, devout men, can be applied to any other. At this time there was scarcely a commercial nation under heaven where the Jews had not been scattered for the purpose of trade, merchandize, &c., and from all these nations, it is said, there were persons now present at Jerusalem.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. And there were dwelling at
    Jerusalem, Jews , etc.] The Ethiopic version adds, proselytes; but they were not all such, as appears from the following account of them; many, and it seems the most of them were of Jewish extract and descent, and others were proselytes to the Jewish religion: these were not natives of Jerusalem, but such as were born in other countries, ( Acts 2:8) but were come to Jerusalem, either to learn the Hebrew language, which was necessary to their reading and understanding the books of Moses, and the prophets written in it; or for an increase of spiritual knowledge and piety; or, as is generally thought, to keep the feast of Pentecost; or rather, as Dr. Lightfoot thinks, they were come hither in great numbers front all parts, in expectation of the Messiah and his kingdom; the time being up, according to Daniels weeks, and other prophecies, that he should appear: and these were devout men ; men of religion and piety, of faith and holiness; and as the Syriac version renders it, who feared God; for in these worst of times, among this wicked generation of men, there were some who had the fear of God before their eyes, and on their hearts; and these were collected from different quarters, to be witnesses of this amazing dispensation: for they came out of every nation under heaven ; that is, wherever the Jews were dispersed; being the descendants of those that were carried captive at different times, and into different places; as by Salmanezer, Nebuchadnezzar, Ptolomy Lagus, Antiochus, and in other lesser dispersions.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-13 - The difference in
    languages which arose at Babel, has much hindered the spread of knowledge and religion. The instruments whom the Lord firs employed in spreading the Christian religion, could have made n progress without this gift, which proved that their authority was from God.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    5. Dwelling (katoikountev). Denoting an
    abiding; but here it must be taken in a wide sense, since among these are mentioned those whose permanent residence was in Mesopotamia, etc. See ver. 9.

    Devout. See on Luke ii. 25.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    2:5 {Were dwelling} (esan katoikountes). Periphrastic imperfect active indicative. Usually katoikew means residence in a place (#4:16; 7:24; 9:22,32) as in verse #14 (#Luke 13:4). Perhaps some had come to Jerusalem to live while others were here only temporarily, for the same word occurs in verse #9 of those who dwell in Mesopotamia, etc. {Devout} (eulabeis). Reverent (eu, well, lambanw, to take). See on Lu 2:25 like Simeon waiting for the comfort of Israel or hoping to die and be buried in the Holy City and also #Ac 8:2.
