Acts 2:9-11

_ _ Parthians, etc. — Beginning with the farthest east, the Parthians, the enumeration proceeds farther and farther westward till it comes to Judea; next come the western countries, from Cappadocia to Pamphylia; then the southern, from Egypt to Cyrene; finally, apart from all geographical consideration, Cretes and Arabians are placed together. This enumeration is evidently designed to convey an impression of universality [Baumgarten].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 2:5-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 2:9

Judea — The dialect of which greatly differed from that of Galilee. Asia — The country strictly so called.
