And for about the time of forty years suffered he their manners in the wilderness.
Webster's Bible Translation
And about the time of forty years he suffered their manners in the wilderness.
Weymouth New Testament
For a period of about forty years, He fed them, like a nurse, in the Desert.
Acts 13:18 Parallel
CommentaryVincent's Word Studies
Suffered he their manners (ἐτροποφόρησεν)
From τρόπος fashion or manner, and φορέω, to bear or suffer. The preferable reading, however, is ἐτροφοφόρησεν; from τροφός, a nurse; and the figure is explained by, and probably was drawn from, Deuteronomy 1:31. The American revisers properly insist on the rendering, as a nursing-father bare he them.
