Acts 2:46 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

With one accord (ὁμοθυμαδὸν)

See on Matthew 18:19.

From house to house (κατ' οἶκον)

Better, as Rev., at home, contrasted with in the temple. Compare Plm 1:2; Colossians 4:15; 1 Corinthians 16:19.

Did eat their meat (μετελάμβανον τροφῆς)

Rev., take their food. Partake would be better, giving the force of μετά, with. Note the imperfect: "continued to partake."

Singleness (ἀφελότητι)

Only here in New Testament. Derived from ἀ, not, and φελλεύς, stony ground. Hence of something simple or plain.
