Acts 4:29

And now (kai ta nun). "And as to (accusative of general reference) the now things (the present situation)." Only in the Acts in the N.T. ( Isaiah 5:38 ; Isaiah 17:30 ; Isaiah 20:32 ; Isaiah 27:22 ). Grant (do). Second aorist active imperative of didwmi, urgency of the aorist, Do it now. To speak thy word with all boldness (meta parrhsia pash lalein ton logon sou). Literally, "with all boldness to go on speaking (present active infinitive) thy word." Peter and John had defied the Sanhedrin in verse Isaiah 20 , but all the same and all the more they pray for courage in deed to live up to their brave words. A wholesome lesson.
