And they stoned Stephen, prayingh, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.

JND Translation Notes

h
Lit. "invoking," "calling on," but in English we must have a word after this, which mars the connexion here. The Authorized Version seems to separate God and the Lord Jesus. "Calling on the Lord" would leave out God. The Spirit of God, I doubt not, has purposely left out both "Lord" and "God". No one can be called upon really but God, so that the word has great force as used here. I have said "praying" for want of a better word.

WK Translation Notes

a
invoking ^: There is no ground for the addition in the Authorized Version of 'God', and a questionable need for that in the Revised Version of 'the Lord'. It was on the Lord that His dying servant called, as the blessed Lord dying commended His spirit to His Father's hands. (Exp. of Acts, p.103)
invoking ^: In verse 59 if words must be intercalated, [the RV is]... more right in saying "the Lord" than the Authorized Version, which detracts from His glory by inserting "God;" better leave out either and give, "invoking and saying, Lord Jesus," etc. (Bible Treasury 13:335)
