Acts 9:24 τε

Post by Jonathan Robie » February 3rd, 2019, 10:10 am

Can someone help me understand the function of τε in this context?
Acts 9:23-25 wrote:ἐγνώσθη δὲ τῷ Σαύλῳ ἡ ἐπιβουλὴ αὐτῶν. παρετηροῦντο δὲ καὶ τὰς πύλας ἡμέρας τε καὶ νυκτὸς ὅπως αὐτὸν ἀνέλωσιν·

Pretty sure this would correspond to what BDAG has under meaning 2 C) for τέ:

2.marker of connection between coordinate nonsequential items
ⓒ w. the same mng. τὲ … καί (Jos., Bell. 2, 142, Ant. 1, 9) and τὲ καί
α. connecting concepts, usu. of the same kind or corresponding as opposites.
