47 praising God, and having favour with all the people; and the Lord added [to the assembly] daily those that were to be saved.

References for Acts 2:47

    • q 2:47 - See Note g, ch. 3.1.
    • r 2:47 - The remnant of Israel whom God was sparing. The Lord now added these to the Christian assembly. The present participle as here gives the character instead of the fact; as I might say, 'the being spared ones;' it is the class of persons God was then saving. It is not a doubt as to their being saved, nor a state, but a class: see Luke 13.23.
