    Definitions for Acts 27:23

    Angel - Messenger.

    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 27:23

    The - God, whose I am, and whom I serve - This Divine communication was intended to give credit to the apostle and to his doctrine; and, in such perilous circumstances, to speak so confidently, when every appearance was against him, argued the fullest persuasion of the truth of what he spoke; and the fulfillment, so exactly coinciding with the prediction, must have shown these heathens that the God whom Paul served must be widely different from theirs.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 27:23

    There stood by me - There appeared to me.

    The angel of God - The messages of God were often communicated by angels. See Hebrews 1:14. This does not mean that there was any particular angel, but simply an angel.

    Whose I am - Of the God to whom I belong. This is an expression of Paul's entire devotedness to him.

    Whom I serve - In the gospel. To whom and to whose cause I am entirely devoted.

    Wesley's Notes on Acts 27:23

    27:23 The God whose I am, and whom I serve - How short a compendium of religion! Yet how full! Comprehending both faith, hope, and love.
