" . . . when we had accomplished those days . . . "

  • The "seven days" of (Acts 21:4). The Greek verb here rendered "accomplished," and translated "furnished" in (2 Timothy 3:17) has the primary sense of making ready, equippin, or fitting out, as of a ship. Hence some conclude that the ship required a week of refitting at Tyre. However, in a time expression, as here, it is better translated, "to complete," "to finish." (6BC 399)

" . . . we departed and went our way . . ."

  • Literally, "having departed we were going on our way." (6BC 399)
