Acts 14:13 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Of Jupiter (τοῦ Διὸς)

Properly, the Jupiter, the tutelary deity of Lystra. It is unnecessary to supply temple, as Rev. The god himself was regarded as present in his temple.

The gates (πυλῶνας)

What gates are intended is uncertain. Some say, the city gates; others, the temple gates; and others, the doors of the house in which Paul and Barnabas were residing. See on Acts 12:13.
