21:4  And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days: who said to Paul through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem.

go up to

Lit. set foot in. Not, as in Acts 20:23 a warning of danger, but now an imperative command. See Acts 22:17,18.

21:23  Do therefore this that we say to thee: We have four men which have a vow on them;

vow

Probably according to Numbers 6:1-7. Cf. Colossians 2:14-17.

21:24  Them take, and purify thyself with them, and be at charges with them, that they may shave their heads: and all may know that those things, whereof they were informed concerning thee, are nothing; but that thou thyself also walkest orderly, and keepest the law.

charges with them Lit. spend something on them.

walkest orderly Lit. art keeping in the ranks, guarding the law. Cf. Romans 10:1-12.

21:26  Then Paul took the men, and the next day purifying himself with them entered into the temple, to signify the accomplishment of the days of purification, until that an offering should be offered for every one of them.

Paul took

Contra. Acts 21:4; Galatians 2:2-6. See, ; Romans 3:9,10,19,20,28; 4:3-5 ; 5:1,2; 6:14; 7:1-4,6; 8:3,4; Galatians 2:15,16,18,19; 3:10,24,25 ; 4:9-11,21-31; Philippians 3:7-9; Hebrews 9:14,15,28; 10:1-4,17,18 13:11-14

21:30  And all the city was moved, and the people ran together: and they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple: and forthwith the doors were shut.

drew

See, Acts 14:19; 16:19.

21:37  And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek?

chief

(Greek - chiliarchos [xiliðarxov] , the Roman tribune). There were six such "chief captains" in each legion of 6000 men.
