No comment (Acts 4:14)

“When they saw

The man who had been cured

Standing beside them,

They had nothing to say

In opposition.”

τόν τε ἄνθρωπον βλέποντες σὺν αὐτοῖς ἑστῶτα τὸν τεθεραπευμένον, οὐδὲν εἶχον ἀντειπεῖν

The author of Acts indicated that these religious leaders saw (βλέποντες) the man (τόν τε ἄνθρωπον) who had been cured (τὸν τεθεραπευμένον) standing beside them (σὺν αὐτοῖς ἑστῶτα).  Thus, they had nothing (οὐδὲν εἶχον) to say in opposition (ἀντειπεῖν).  These high priests were perplexed.  They saw the cured lame man standing next to Peter and John.  They could not say anything to contradict this healing of the lame beggar.  Have you ever been speechless?
