Acts 9:24 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Laying await (ἐπιβουλὴ)

So rendered by A. V. wherever it occurs, viz., Acts 20:3, Acts 20:19; Acts 23:30; but properly changed by Rev., in every case, to plot. "Laying await" refers rather to the execution of the plot than to the plot itself.

Watched

See on Mark 3:2. Imperfect: they were or kept watching, day and night.
