Acts 7:21 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Took up (ἀνείλετο)

Used among Greek writers of taking up exposed children; also of owning new-born children. So Aristophanes: "I exposed (the child) and some other woman, having taken it, adopted (ανείλετο) it" ("Clouds," 531). There is no reason why the meaning should be limited to took him up from the water (as Gloag).
