“And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort - In such an accepted time we should add line upon line, and not leave off, till the thing is done. Save yourselves from this perverse generation - Many of whom were probably mocking still.
Ac 2:40 Save yourselves. This was the object of the "many other words". They could "save themselves" by complying with the conditions named in Ac 2:38, and thus accepting Christ as their Savior. From this perverse generation. The wicked Jewish race.
