And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.
Read Chapter 2
George Leo Haydock
And with a great many other words did he testify and exhort them. St. Luke only gives an abridgment of those exhortations, which St. Peter, and the apostles frequently gave to all the people. St. Peter, as St. Chrysostom observes, and as we see in these Acts, was the mouth of all the rest. And on this first day of Pentecost, about three thousand were converted. (Witham)
Observe how, throughout, the writer studies brevity, and how free he is from ambition and display. He testified and exhorted, saying. This is the perfection of teaching, comprising something of fear and something of love. Save yourselves from this untoward generation. He says nothing of the future, all is about the present, by which indeed men are chiefly swayed; he shows that the Gospel releases from present evils as well.
