Acts 17:25 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Is worshipped (θεραπεύεται)

Incorrect. Render, as Rev., served. Luke often uses the word in the sense of to heal or cure; but this is its primary sense. See on Luke 5:15. It refers to the clothing of the images of the gods in splendid garments, and bringing them costly gifts and offerings of food and drink.

As though he needed (προσδεόμενος)

Properly, "needed anything in addition (πρός) to what he already has."
