John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary

Verse 18 (Acts 4:18)

And they called them ,.... From the apartment where they were; or ordered their servants to call them in to them:

and commanded them not to speak at all ; either privately or publicly, in the ministry of the word, or in working of miracles, in the city, or in the country:

nor teach in the name of Jesus ; any doctrine whatever; or "the name of Jesus", as the Arabic version reads; that is, the doctrine of Jesus, that which respects his person, his carnation, his offices, his sufferings, death, and resurrection from the dead.
