Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentActs 6:3
- Of good report (marturoumenouv).
- Present passive participle of marturew, to bear witness to. Men with a good reputation as well as with spiritual gifts (the Holy Spirit and wisdom).
- We may appoint (katasthsomen).
- Future active indicative of katisthmi, we shall appoint. The action of the apostles follows the choice by the church, but it is promised as a certainty, not as a possibility. The Textus Receptus has a first aorist active subjunctive here (katasthswmen).
