Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 21:4-6

_ _ finding disciples — finding out the disciples, implying some search. They would expect such, from what is recorded, Acts 11:19. Perhaps they were not many; yet there were gifted ones among them.

_ _ who said to Paul ... that he should not go up to Jerusalem — (See on Acts 20:23; also see on Acts 21:11-14).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 21:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 21:4

And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days — ln order to spend a Sabbath with them. Who told Paul by the Spirit — That afflictions awaited him at Jerusalem. This was properly what they said by the Spirit. They themselves advised him not to go up. The disciples seemed to understand their prophetic impulse to be an intimation from the Spirit, that Paul, if he were so minded, might avoid the danger, by not going to Jerusalem.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 21:4

And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days: who said to Paul through the (a) Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem.

(a) They foretold through the Spirit what dangers were about to befall Paul, and this they did as prophets: but they misdirected him away from Jerusalem because of a fleshly affection.
