Acts 21:17

When we were come (genomenwn hmwn). Genitive absolute again, "we having come." Received (apedexanto). Apodecomai, to receive from. This old compound only in Luke in the N.T. Gladly (asmenw). Old adverb hsmenw from hdomai, to be pleased. Here only in the N.T. Perhaps this first glad welcome was from Paul's personal friends in Jerusalem.
