As we tarried (epimenontwn hmwn). Genitive absolute. Note epi (additional) with menw as in Luke 12:16 . Many days (hmera pleiou). More days (than we expected), accusative of time. A certain prophet named Agabus (prophth onomati Agabo). A prophet like the daughters of Philip, mentioned already in connection with the famine predicted by him ( Acts 11:28 ), but apparently not a man of prominence like Barnabas, and so no allusion to that former prophecy.
