11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs-we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!"
11 both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians--we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God."
11 both Jews and proselytes; Even Cretans and Arabs! "They're speaking our languages, describing God's mighty works!"
11 Cretans and Arabs--we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God."
11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism), Cretans, and Arabs. And we all hear these people speaking in our own languages about the wonderful things God has done!"
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Acts 2:11
Commentary on Acts 2:5-13
(Read Acts 2:5-13)
The difference in languages which arose at Babel, has much hindered the spread of knowledge and religion. The instruments whom the Lord first employed in spreading the Christian religion, could have made no progress without this gift, which proved that their authority was from God.
