Acts 6:6

They laid their hands on them (epethkan autoiv tav xeirav).
First aorist active indicative of epitithmi. Probably by the apostles who ratified the choice (verse 3). The laying on of hands "was a symbol of the impartation of the gifts and graces which they needed to qualify them for the office. It was of the nature of a prayer that God would bestow the necessary gifts, rather than a pledge that they were actually conferred" (Hackett).
