Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentActs 9:16
- I will shew (upodeixw).
- Beforehand as a warning as in Luke 3:7 and from time to time.
- He must suffer (dei auton patein).
- Constative aorist active infinitive (patein, from pasxw) covering the whole career of Saul. Suffering is one element in the call that Saul receives. He will learn "how many things" (osa) are included in this list by degrees and by experience. A glance at : will show one the fulfilment of this prophecy. But it was the "gift" of Christ to Paul to go on suffering (pasxein, present infinitive, Philippians 1:29).
