    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:4

    ¶ Mas los que fueron esparcidos, pasaban por la tierra anunciando la Palabra del Evangelio.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 8:4

    Verse 4. They that were scattered-went every where
    preaching] Thus the very means devised by Satan to destroy the Church became the very instruments of its diffusion and establishment. What are counsel, or might, or cunning, or rage, or malice, against the Lord, whether they arc excited by men or devils!

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. Therefore they that were scattered abroad , etc.] By reason of the persecution in
    Jerusalem: the seventy disciples, and other ministers of the word; or the hundred and twenty, excepting the apostles, went every where ; or went through the countries of Judea and Samaria, as far as Phenice, Cyrus, and Antioch: preaching the word ; the Vulgate Latin, Syriac, and Ethiopic versions add, of God, and so some copies; the Gospel, which is the word of God, and not man; which was not of men, nor received from men, but came from God, and by the revelation of Christ; and which was good news and glad tidings, of peace, pardon, righteousness and salvation, by Jesus Christ.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 - Though persecution must not
    drive us from our work, yet it may send u to work elsewhere. Wherever the established believer is driven, he carries the knowledge of the gospel, and makes known the preciousnes of Christ in every place. Where a simple desire of doing goo influences the heart, it will be found impossible to shut a man ou from all opportunities of usefulness.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    8:4 {They therefore} (hoi
    men oun). Demonstrative hoi as often (#1:6, etc.) though it will make sense as the article with the participle diasparentes. The general statement is made here by men and a particular instance (de) follows in verse #5. The inferential particle (oun) points back to verse #3, the persecution by young Saul and the Pharisees. Jesus had commanded the disciples not to depart from Jerusalem till they received the Promise of the Father (#1:4), but they had remained long after that and were not carrying the gospel to the other peoples (#1:8). Now they were pushed out by Saul and began as a result to carry out the Great Commission for world conquest, that is those "scattered abroad" (diasparentes, second aorist passive participle of diaspeirw). this verb means disperse, to sow in separate or scattered places (dia) and so to drive people hither and thither. Old and very common verb, especially in the LXX, but in the N.T. only in #Ac 8:1,4; 11:19. {Went about} (dielqon). Constative second aorist active of diercomai, to go through (from place to place, dia). Old and common verb, frequent for missionary journeys in the Acts (#5:40; 8:40; 9:32; 11:19; 13:6). {Preaching the word} (euaggelizomenoi ton logon). Evangelizing or gospelizing the word (the truth about Christ). In #11:19 Luke explains more fully the extent of the labors of these new preachers of the gospel. They were emergency preachers, not ordained clergymen, but men stirred to activity by the zeal of Saul against them. The blood of the martyrs (Stephen) was already becoming the seed of the church. "The violent dispersion of these earnest disciples resulted in a rapid diffusion of the gospel" (Alvah Hovey).
