Lesson 13a — Acts 1:15-17



Interlinear Rendering

Please download and print these out.

Use StepBible to help you develop your rough translation.



The New American Standard Bible and English Standard Version are intentionally written to be as close to the word order of the Greek as possible, and still be comprehensible.  When I am struggling with coming up with a basic interlinear rendering, I find it helpful to compare my work with theirs.


NET Notes

Once you are moderately happy with your interlinear rendering, then download and review the notes on this verse from the NET Bible.  They often have some "tn" translation notes that will be helpful.


Outside Help

The idea in every case...

...looking at the NASB, ESV, NET Bible, and finally getting Bob's comments as you will in the next half of the lesson...

...as you have already noticed, is to try and do the best you can on your own, then go to an outside aid for help.  This will help you maximize your learning experiences.
