Acts 26:17

_ _ Delivering thee from the people — the Jews.

_ _ and from the Gentiles — He was all along the object of Jewish malignity, and was at that moment in the hands of the Gentiles; yet he calmly reposes on his Master’s assurances of deliverance from both, at the same time taking all precautions for safety and vindicating all his legal rights.

_ _ unto whom now I send thee — The emphatic “I” here denotes the authority of the Sender [Bengel].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 26:12-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 26:17

Delivering thee from the people — The Jews and the Gentiles, to whom, both Jews and Gentiles, I now send thee — Paul gives them to know, that the liberty he enjoys even in bonds, was promised to him, as well as his preaching to the Gentiles. I, denotes the authority of the sender. Now, the time whence his mission was dated. For his apostleship, as well as his conversion, commenced at this moment.
