Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 21:3

_ _ when we ... discovered — “sighted,” as the phrase is.

_ _ Cyprus, we left it on the left hand — that is, steered southeast of it, leaving it on the northwest.

_ _ sailed into — “unto”

_ _ Syria, and landed at Tyre — the celebrated seat of maritime commerce for East and West. It might be reached from Patara in about two days.

_ _ there the ship was to unlade her burden — which gave the apostle time for what follows.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 21:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 21:3

We landed at Tyre — That there should be Christians there was foretold, Psalms 87:4. What we read in that psalm of the Philistines and Ethiopians also may be compared with Acts 8:40; Acts 27:4.
