“And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”
King James Version (KJV)
7:59 And they stoned Stephen, invoking and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit - This is the literal translation of the words, the name of God not being in the original. Nevertheless such a solemn prayer to Christ, in which a departing soul is thus committed into his hands, is such an act of worship, as no good man could have paid to a mere creature; Stephen here worshipping Christ in the very same manner in which Christ worshipped the Father on the cross.
Ac 7:59 Stoned Stephen. Repeated to show that in the storm of stones he committed himself to Jesus.
