Acts 5:28

We straitly charged (Paraggeliai parhggeilamen).
Like the Hebrew idiom (common in the LXX), though found in Greek, with charging (instrumental case) we charged (cf. same idiom in (Luke 22:15). Somewhat like the cognate accusative. The command referred to occurs in Acts 4:17,18 and the refusal of Peter and John in 4:20.

To bring upon us (epagagein ep' hmav).
Note repetition of epi. Second aorist active infinitive of epagw, old verb, but in the N.T. only here and 2 Peter 2:1,5. The Sanhedrin gladly took the blood of Christ on their heads and their children to Pilate (Matthew 27:25). Paul tried to save the Jews (Acts 18:6; 22:20). "{This man}" (tou antrwpou toutou). Contemptuous slur and refusal to call the name of Jesus as in the Talmud later.
