Acts 2:5

Were dwelling (hsan katoikountev). Periphrastic imperfect active indicative. Usually katoikew means residence in a place (Acts 4:16; Acts 7:24; Acts 9:22, Acts 9:32) as in verse Acts 2:14 (Luke 13:4). Perhaps some had come to Jerusalem to live while others were here only temporarily, for the same word occurs in verse Acts 2:9 of those who dwell in Mesopotamia, etc.

Devout (eulabeiv). Reverent (eu, well, lambanw, to take). See on Luke 2:25 like Simeon waiting for the consolation of Israel or hoping to die and be buried in the Holy City and also Acts 8:2.
