THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES - Chapter 3 - Verse 4

Verse 4. Fastening his eyes. The word used here denotes to look intently, or with fixed attention. It is one of the peculiar words which Luke uses, Lu 4:20; 22:56; Ac 1:10; 3:12; 6:15; 7:55; 10:4, etc., in all twelve times. It is used by no other writer in the New Testament, except by Paul twice, 2 Co 3:7,13.
