THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES - Chapter 27 - Verse 3

Verse 3. We touched at Sidon. See Barnes "Mt 11:21".

It was north of Caesarea.

And Julius courteously entreated Paul. Treated him kindly, or humanely.

And gave him liberty, etc. The same thing had been done by Felix, Ac 24:23.

Unto his friends. In Sidon. Paul had frequently travelled in that direction, in going to and returning from Jerusalem; and it is not improbable, therefore, that he had friends in all the principal cities.

To refresh himself. To enjoy the benefit of their kind care, to make his present situation and his voyage as comfortable as possible. It is probable that they would furnish him with many supplies which were needful to make his long and perilous voyage comfortable.

{b} "courteously entreated" Ac 24:23; 28:16 {*} "refresh himself" "Take refreshment"
