Treasury of Scripture

But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me.

Acts 28:30,31
And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, …









(17) But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me.--But, on the contrary, instead of fear--far from being ashamed--he, when he arrived in Rome, sought me out. This must have been a much more rigorous captivity than the one alluded to in the last chapter of the Acts when St. Paul dwelt in his own hired house with the soldier who guarded him. Now he was rigidly imprisoned, and the very place of his captivity was not, apparently, easily found.

Verse 17. - Sought for sought out, A.V.; diligently for very diligently, A.V. and T.R.
