Acts 17:9 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Taken security - Λαβοντες το ἱκανον, Having taken what was sufficient, or satisfactory.

Perhaps this is the sense of the phrase in the text.

Yet from our earliest years we have heard about them. If I were to ask for a definition of Repentance, a great
