Was minded to take with them (ebouleto sunparalabein). Imperfect middle (ebouleto), not aorist middle ebouleusato of the Textus Receptus. Barnabas willed, wished and stuck to it (imperfect tense). Sunparalabein is second aorist active infinitive of the double compound sunparalambanw, old verb to take along together with, used already about John Mark in Galatians 12:25 and by Paul in Galatians 2:1 about Titus. Nowhere else in the N.T. Barnabas used the ingressive aorist in his suggestion.
