21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
21 Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets.
21 whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.
21 For the time being he must remain out of sight in heaven until everything is restored to order again just the way God, through the preaching of his holy prophets of old, said it would be.
21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.
21 For he must remain in heaven until the time for the final restoration of all things, as God promised long ago through his holy prophets.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Acts 3:21
Commentary on Acts 3:19-21
(Read Acts 3:19-21)
The absolute necessity of repentance is to be solemnly charged upon the consciences of all who desire that their sins may be blotted out, and that they may share in the refreshment which nothing but a sense of Christ's pardoning love can afford. Blessed are those who have felt this. It was not needful for the Holy Spirit to make known the times and seasons of these dispensations. These subjects are still left obscure. But when sinners are convinced of their sins, they will cry to the Lord for pardon; and to the penitent, converted, and believing, times of refreshment will come from the presence of the Lord. In a state of trial and probation, the glorified Redeemer will be out of sight, because we must live by faith in him.
