    Definitions for Acts 21:19

    Gentiles - A people; nations other than Israel.
    Wrought - Worked; made.

    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 21:19

    Declared particularly, etc. - He no doubt had heard that they were prejudiced against him; and, by declaring what God had done by him among the Gentiles, showed how groundless this prejudice was: for, were he a bad man, or doing any thing that he should not do, God would not have made him such a singular instrument of so much good.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 21:19

    Had saluted them - With the usual tokens of respect and affection.

    He declared particularly ... - As an evidence that God had been with him. It is not improbable that there might have been some suspicion in regard to Paul among the disciples at Jerusalem, and he might have heard that they were prejudiced against him. This prejudice would be removed by his stating what had actually occurred under his ministry.
