set forward: Is there any good reason why προπεμφθέντες should not be rendered ’set forward’ here as in Rom. 15:24; 1 Cor. 16:6; 3 John 6? No doubt the heart of the saints was with them, not with the legalists; but there was considerate and affectionate care for their wants by the way, whether or not there was any escort, as in chapter 21:5, which some conceive here. (Exp. of Acts, p.210)
both: Text. Rec. follows most in omitting τε ’both’, which the more ancient authorities insert. (Exp. of Acts, p.209)
