    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 13:26

    Men and brethren - This should have been translated brethren simply. See the note on Acts 7:2.

    Children of the stock of Abraham - All ye that are Jews.

    And whosoever among you feared God - That is, all ye who are Gentiles, and are now proselytes to the Jewish religion.

    The word of this salvation - The doctrine that contains the promise of deliverance from sin, and the means by which it is brought about; all which is founded on Jesus, of the stock of David, dying and rising again for the salvation of Jews and Gentiles.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 13:26

    Men and brethren - Paul now exhorts them to embrace the Lord Jesus as the Messiah. He uses, therefore, the most respectful and fraternal language.

    Children of the stock of Abraham - Descendants of Abraham; you who regard Abraham as your ancestor. He means here to address particularly the native-born Jews; and this appellation is used because they valued themselves highly on account of their descent from Abraham (see the notes on Matthew 3:9); and because the promise of the Messiah had been specially given to him.

    And whosoever ... - Proselytes. See the notes on Acts 13:16.

    Is the word of this salvation sent - This message of salvation. It was sent particularly to the Jewish people. The Saviour was sent to that nation Matthew 15:24; and the design was to offer to them first the message of life. See the notes on Acts 13:46.
