Acts 3:19

_ _ when the times of refreshing shall come — rather, “in order that the times of refreshing may come”; that long period of repose, prosperity and joy, which all the prophets hold forth to the distracted Church and this miserable world, as eventually to come, and which is here, as in all the prophets, made to turn upon the national conversion of Israel.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 3:12-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 3:19

Be converted — Be turned from sin and Satan unto God. See Acts 26:20. But this term, so common in modern writings, very rarely occurs in Scripture: perhaps not once in the sense we now use it, for an entire change from vice to holiness. That the times of refreshing — Wherein God largely bestows his refreshing grace, may come — To you also. To others they will assuredly come, whether ye repent or no.
