1:2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
[F203 F204 F211 R1523:3 R3905:5 R5589:2 R5589:3 R5829:1 ]
1:3 To whom also he showed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
[R170 R853C R1415:3 R2081:2 R2081:3 R2082:2 R2455 R2455:3 R2796 R2796:3 R2924:3 R3563 R3564:1 R4305:2 R5415 R5829:2 R5830:2 R5882 R1591:3 Z9310 ]
1:4 And, being assembled together with [them], commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, [saith he], ye have heard of me.
[B119 B120 B121 R549:3 R1415:6 R2088 R2925:3 R2925:4 R4306:1 R4306:2 ]
1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
[A80 A93 A275 B119 B120 R2082:4 R2084 R2085:2 R3903 R3905:5 R4305:4 R5589:3 ]
1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
[A80 A275 B18 B78 B120 E36 R530 R1796:3 R1796 R2818:4 R2924:5 R4305:4 R4305:5 R5829 R5829:5 R5943 R5943:1 R530:3* ]
1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
[B120 R550:2 R1415 R1522:5 R1872 R2818:5 R2818:6 R5589:5 ]
1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
[B49 R1980 R2818:6 R2925:6 R2918:4 ]
1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

1:12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.
1:13 And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James [the son] of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas [the brother] of James.
[R549C R984:2 R1521 R2940 ]
1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.

1:15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)
[R2926 R2926:3 R5408 ]
1:16 Men [and] brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.
[R549:3 R5552:6 ]
1:17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.
1:18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
[R5552 R5552:6 ]
1:19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.
1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishopric let another take.
[F208 F209 R162:5 R162B R5408:3 R5939 R5940:4 Q521:2 ]
1:21 Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
1:22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
[R1508 R1512:2 ]
1:23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
[F209 R1521 R1522:2 R2823:2 R5002:5 R5829:1 R1445:1 ]
1:24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all [men], show whether of these two thou hast chosen,
[R2251 R2251:6 ]
1:25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
[R5683 R5683:3 ]
1:26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
[R550:2 R1521 R1522:2 R5002:3 Z9209 ]
2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
[R2088:6 R2820:3 R4306:4 ]
2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

2:5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
[C85 R2089:1 R2820:6 R2821:4 R2927:5 R5831:4 ]
2:6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
[R369B R372:3 R988D R988D R2820:6 R5831:4 ]
2:7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
[F214 R1521 R1522:6 R2819 R5830 ]
2:8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
[R1201 R3940B R3941:2 R3941:3 R5831:4 ]
2:9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
[R963 R964:4 ]
2:10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
[R504 R2090:2 R2090:4 R1582:1 R1582:2 Z9309 ]
2:11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
[R2821:1 R2821:2 ]
2:12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
2:13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
[R509 R509:4 R2089:4 ]
2:14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all [ye] that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
[E214 R369B R988D R988D R1410 R1521 R1760 R2089:2 R2656B R2657:6 Q783:4 ]
2:15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is [but] the third hour of the day.
[R2089 R2089:2 ]
2:16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
[E219 PD73 R988D R988D R1410 R1411:6 R1549:3 R4165:5 R4467:2 R5451 ]
2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

2:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
[D565 D639 R226:6 R1549:3 R5452:4 ]
2:19 And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
[D527 D544 D584 D592 R498:1 R879:2 ]
2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
[D587 D590 D592 ]
2:21 And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
[C252 R1341:1 R1967:5 R2157:3* R5831 R5832:5 ]
2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
[C252 C293 R167B R1340 R1967 R2084 R5611 R5747 ]
2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:

2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
[R1948 R2600:5 R3173 ]
2:26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
2:27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

2:28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
2:29 Men [and] brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
[E362 PD61 R1282 R1389 R1390:4 R2600:6 R4549 R4961 R4961:5 R5132:1 R5132:5 ]
2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
[A92 R452D R453:2 R943B R944:1* R1283:1 R2372 R2372:6 R3108:3 R3108:5 ]

2:32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
[E212 E213 R2089:3 R2089 R2795:2 R4174:6 R4307 R4994B R5362 R5363:1 ]
2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

2:37 Now when they heard [this], they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men [and] brethren, what shall we do?
[E214 R2930:6 R2930 R2931:1 R2957B R4308:2 R4308:3 R5295:5 R5962 R5964:4 Z9207 ]
2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
[F427 F428 F432 R198 R444 R679 R952 R1034B R1539 R1541:1 R1544:4 R1968 R1969:3 R2090:1 R2931:3 R3356 R3356 R3356:3 R4308:3 R4308:4 R4308:5 R5295 R5295:5 R5964:4 R1421:1 Q32:T ]

2:40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added [unto them] about three thousand souls.

2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
[F384 F472 S0123 R803:1 R1013B R1014:2 R2771 R4307 R5642:2 ]
2:43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
2:44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
[D474 D479 R1861 R1861:2 R1861:6 R1862:1 R1862:2 R1862:6 R2090:4 R2932:5 R1421:4 R1421:5 ]
2:45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all [men], as every man had need.
2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
[F384 F472 R1013B R1014:2 R1382B R2771:4 R4306 R4307:1 ]
2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
[R2090:4 R2090:5 R2931:6 R2932:6 R1420:3 ]
3:1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, [being] the ninth [hour].
[R1048 R1321 R1997B R2095 R2933 R2933:1 R4313 R5503 R5503:6 R5875 R1421:3 Z9207 ]
3:2 And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;
3:3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.
[R1998:2 R2933:2 R2933:3 ]
3:4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
[R1998:2 R2095:3 R4313:2 ]
3:5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
3:6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
[R61 R61:6* R1998:3 R2095:3 R2818:1 R2933:3 R2933:3,4 R2933:4 R2933:5 R4316:2 R5838:3 R1421:3 R1422:5 ]
3:7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted [him] up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
[R2095:3 R4313 R1422:4 R1422:5 Z9211 ]
3:8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.
[R2095:4 R1421:6 ]
3:9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God:
3:10 And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.
3:11 And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon's, greatly wondering.
[R2933:6 R2934:1 R1421:6 ]
3:12 And when Peter saw [it], he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?
[C252 R1341:1 R2084 R5838:6 R1634:6 Z9403 R1421:6 ]
3:13 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let [him] go.
3:14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;
[R573D R574:3 ]
3:15 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.

4:29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
[R338 R338:1 R421 R1425:6 ]
4:30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.
4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
[R1583 R1584:3 R4316 R5840:5 Z9207 ]
4:32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any [of them] that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.
[D478 D479 R1128 R1130:6* R1389 R1862:1 R1862:2 R4317 R4318:1 R5849 R5850:1 Q837:2 ]
4:33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
[S0724 R1512:2 R2102:1 R2102:2 R4390:6 R4390B R4391:1 R4391:4 ]
4:34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,
4:35 And laid [them] down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.
[R4317:6 R5849:6 ]
4:36 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, [and] of the country of Cyprus,
[R2943 R2943:2 R3434 R4318:2 R4318:3 R5537:1 R5850:1 ]
4:37 Having land, sold [it], and brought the money, and laid [it] at the apostles' feet.
5:1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,
[F412 R1034B R1539 R1656B R2943 R2943:6 R4317:2 R4318:4 R5453:4 R5850:3 Z9207 Z9207 Z8502 ]
5:2 And kept back [part] of the price, his wife also being privy [to it], and brought a certain part, and laid [it], at the apostles' feet.
[D479 R435 R1657:4 R1862:3 R2102:6 R2943:3 R2944:1 R4318:1 ]
5:3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back [part] of the price of the land?
[E269 F412 R369B R372:4 R435:3 R988D R988D R1410 R4318:4 R5453:3 R5453:4 R1421:4 ]
5:4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
[E269 R240 R241:4 R1544:2 R2102:6 R2154 R2154:5 R2944:1 R4318:4 R5453:5 ]
5:5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
[R5453:3 R5453:5 R5850:3 R1426:1 ]
5:6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried [him] out, and buried [him].
5:7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
5:8 And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.
5:9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband [are] at the door, and shall carry thee out.
[E270 R369B R372:4 R988D R988D R1410 R1552:6 ]
5:10 Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying [her] forth, buried [her] by her husband.
5:11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things.
[R61 R2102:5 R2943:3 R5850:4 R1426:1 R1426:2 ]
5:12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.
5:13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.
5:14 And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)
[R2108:2 R2108B ]
5:15 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid [them] on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
5:16 There came also a multitude [out] of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
5:17 Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation,
[R537:3 R991 R1128 R1130:6* R2103 R2103:1 R2103:2 R2467 R2947:2 R4325 R4325:2 R4325:3 R4986:3 ]
5:18 And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.
[B264 R969:4 R992:6 R2467:6 ]
5:19 But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,
[E277 R196 R261 R265:2 R265:3 R5851:4 ]
5:20 Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.
5:21 And when they heard [that], they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.
[C293 R2084 R2085:4 R2103:1 R2103:2 R2947:6 R4325:4 ]
5:22 But when the officers came, and found them not in the prison, they returned, and told,
5:23 Saying, The prison truly found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doors: but when we had opened, we found no man within.
5:24 Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow.
5:25 Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.
[R2467:6 R5851:1 Z9207 ]
5:26 Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned.
5:27 And when they had brought them, they set [them] before the council: and the high priest asked them,
5:28 Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.
[A266 R1335B R1336:1 R1553:1 R2103:4 R2103:5 R2947:6 R2948:1 R4325:6 R5851:5 ]
5:29 Then Peter and the [other] apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
[R1548 Z9207 ]
5:30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
[R1508 R1512:2 ]
5:31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand [to be] a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
[A142 C293 E35 E120 F724 R386B R387:3 R744 R745:4 R1341:1 R2155 R2156:2 R4963:5 R5135B R5136:2 R5913 Z8601 ]
5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and [so is] also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
[E212 E213 ]
5:33 When they heard [that], they were cut [to the heart], and took counsel to slay them.
[R2947 R2947:6 R5496:1 R5851:1 ]
5:34 Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;
5:35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men.
[C252 D565 R1341:1 R2085:4 R4033 R4033:1 R4732 R4732:6 ]
5:36 For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought.
5:37 After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, [even] as many as obeyed him, were dispersed.
5:38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:
5:39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.
[R4033:5 R4033:6 R4197 R4198:4 R4803:5 ]
5:40 And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten [them], they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.
[B263 R969:4 R2948:3 ]
5:41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.
[R671:1 R817 R1570B R1575:6 R1697 R1699:6 R2948:4 R4163C R4326:1 Z8502 ]
5:42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
[R2941:6 R2948:5 ]
6:1 And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.
[D479 R670E R1521 R2108B R2951:3 R5851:6 ]
6:2 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples [unto them], and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.
[F254 R2951:5 ]
6:3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the [[Holy Ghost and]] spirit of wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
[F254 R1889 R1891:3 R2951:6 R5851:6 R5951:2 Q242:4 ]
6:4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
[R5379:3* R5379 R5851:6 R1432:2 ]
6:5 And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:
[R2108:3 R2959 R2960:2 ]
6:6 Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed, they laid [their] hands on them.
[F283 R812:3* R812B R1956D R1957:4 ]
6:7 And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.
[R549C R550:4 R2108:2 R2951 R550:4 ]
6:8 And Stephen, full of [[faith]] grace and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.
[F254 R2108:3 R2108B R4328 ]
6:9 Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called [the synagogue] of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen.
[R2108:5 R2952:3 R5857 R5858:1 ]
6:10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.
[F254 R2108:5 R2951:6 R2952:2 ]
6:11 Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and [against] God.
[R5208:6 R5858:2 ]
6:12 And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon [him], and caught him, and brought [him] to the council,
[R2108:6 R2952:4 R4328:5 R1432:3 ]
6:13 And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:
[R2108:6 R2957:3 R4328:5 R1432:2 Z9208 ]
6:14 For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.
6:15 And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.
[E161 E162 R2109:1 R2314 R2501 R2502:6 R2952:4 R2952:5 R4076 R4078:4 R4328:6 R4328:6 R1432:3 ]
7:1 Then said the high priest, Are these things so?
[R218 R2108B R3944 R5858:2 Z9208 ]
7:2 And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran,
[B45 B246 R140B R141:1 R2230B R2957:2 R2957:6 R5169 R5169:3 ]
7:3 And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall show thee.
7:4 Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell.
[B45 B46 R180 R1980 R2855 R5169:4 R5177 R5177:2 Z9312 ]
7:5 And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not [so much as] to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when [as yet] he had no child.
[A293 B246 C265 D427 R360 R605 R1371C R1373:6 R1560 R1862 R2176 R2176:2 R2847 R2849:4 R2853 R2854:5 R2875 R3084:3 R3945:3 R4071:3 R4071 R4071:3 R5181B R5182:5 R5200 R5203:3 R5290B R5291:2 R5785 R5882 R1617:2 Z9402 R1652:4 Z9405 Z9310 ]
7:6 And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat [them] evil four hundred years.
7:7 And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place.
[R2425 R2426:4 ]
7:8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so [Abraham] begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac [begat] Jacob; and Jacob [begat] the twelve patriarchs.
[B246 R3022:3 ]
7:9 And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him,
[R1268 R1271:1 R1776 R1779:4 R2880 R2880:2 R2880:6 R5243 ]
7:10 And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house.
7:11 Now there came a dearth over all the land of Egypt and Chanaan, and great affliction: and our fathers found no sustenance.
7:12 But when Jacob heard that there was corn in Egypt, he sent out our fathers first.
7:13 And at the second [time] Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh.
7:14 Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to [him], and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls.
[R205 R205:2 ]
7:15 So Jacob went down into Egypt, and died, he, and our fathers,
[R1016 R1498 R2597 R2759B R4553 ]
7:16 And were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor [the father] of Sychem.
7:17 But when the time of the promise drew nigh, which God had sworn to Abraham, the people grew and multiplied in Egypt,
7:18 Till another king arose, which knew not Joseph.
7:19 The same dealt subtly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live.
7:20 In which time Moses was born, and was exceeding fair, and nourished up in his father's house three months:
[R2902 R2903:5 R3987 ]
7:21 And when he was cast out, Pharaoh's daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son.
7:22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.
[A164 R736B R737:3 R2902 R2904:1 R3987 R3987:2 R3988:3 R3988:4 R5251:4 R5418 R5418:3 ]
7:23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel.
[R180 R2909:6 ]
7:24 And seeing one [of them] suffer wrong, he defended [him], and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian:
7:25 For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not.
[R2909:6 R3084 ]
7:26 And the next day he showed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another?
7:27 But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us?
7:28 Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday?
[R340B R341:1* ]
7:29 Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons.
7:30 And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.
[R140B R2909:6 R140:6 ]
7:31 When Moses saw [it], he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold [it], the voice of the Lord came unto him,
[R4141 R4142:4* ]
7:32 [Saying], I [am] the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.
7:33 Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.
7:34 I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt.
7:35 This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send [to be] a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.
[R181:5* R3177 ]
7:36 He brought them out, after that he had showed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.
[B48 R3079:3 ]
7:37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.
[R2957:6 R5858:6 ]
7:38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and [with] our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:
[R93 R93:5 ]
7:39 To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust [him] from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,
7:40 Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for [as for] this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
7:41 And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.
7:42 Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices [by the space of] forty years in the wilderness?
7:43 Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.
[B274 R3464:6 ]
7:44 Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as he had appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen.
[R180:6* R5858:3 ]
7:45 Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drave out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David;
7:46 Who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.
7:47 But Solomon built him an house.
7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
[R5858:3 R1401:6 Z9205 R1432:5 ]
7:49 Heaven [is] my throne, and earth [is] my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what [is] the place of my rest?
[D647 R286B R758 R286:1 ]
7:50 Hath not my hand made all these things?
7:51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers [did], so [do] ye.
[R2069 R2070:3 R2958:1 R3464:1 R1432:5 ]
7:52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which showed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:
[R1795 R1796:1 ]
7:53 Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept [it].
[R61 R61:1* R78 R1432:5 ]
7:54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with [their] teeth.
[R920:4 R2958:2 R4329:1 R5858:4 Z9208 Q732:2 ]
7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
[A92 R1018 R1282 R1283:4 R2109:2 R2502:6 R2958:3 R1432:6 ]
7:56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
[R2109:3 R4329:2 R5858:4 Z9310 R1432:6 ]
7:57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,
[R2109:3 R4329:2 ]
7:58 And cast [him] out of the city, and stoned [him]: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.
[R2109:4 R2470 R2958:4 R2958:5 R4329:2,4 R4329:6 R5858:5 ]
7:59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon [God], and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
[E161 E344 R700:1* R860B R1880 R2108:3 R2787 R2788:5 R2951:2 R2958:6 R4328 R4329:6 R5858:5 ]
7:60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
[E162 E345 F203 M1213 R1880 R2196 R2314 R2617 R2959:1 R3025 R3027:6 R3715 R4076 R4078:4 R4329:3 R4329:4 R4588 R4588:6 R4729 R4791 R4794:2 R5059 R5059:6 R5166 R5166:4 R5259 R5858:5 R5913B R1433:1 Z9208 ]
8:1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.
[D480 D481 R367 R367:3 R1861 R1862:5 R1862:5,6 R2109 R2110:1 R2300 R2959:3 R2959:6 R2960:3 R4132 R4329:5 R5357:1 R5858:1 ]
8:2 And devout men carried Stephen [to his burial], and made great lamentation over him.
8:3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed [them] to prison.
[R2959 R4329:5 R5172 R5172:6 ]
8:4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.
[D480 S0726 S1030 R338 R421 R421:2 R670:3 R670:5 R670E R940B R942:5 R983 R984:4 R983 R1862:5,6 R2109 R2109:6 R2110:1 R4329 R4336:3 R4336:6 R4336B R4337:1 R4337:4 R1433:1 ]
8:5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.
[E207 R1957:2 R2960:3 R2960:4 R4329:6 R4330:2 Z9208 ]
8:6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.
[R4132:3 R4329 R4329:3 ]
8:7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed [with them]: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.
[R196 R261 ]
8:8 And there was great joy in that city.
8:9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:
[R2960:5 R4329:6 ]
8:10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.
8:11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.
8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
[F448 R444:3 R1956D R2110:4 R2220 R2764 ]
8:13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.
[E207 E247 R369B R988D R988D R1048 R1410 R1544:2 R1997B R2961:4 R1433:2 ]
8:14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:
[F257 R1584:3 R2961:1 R3152 R5935 ]
8:15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:
[E207 E247 ]
8:16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)
8:17 Then laid they [their] hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
[F284 R376:2 R1957:4 R2764:5 R2961:2 R3152:5 R4872:2 R1433:3 ]
8:18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,
[E207 R1998:3 R2110:2 R2565 R2567:2 R4330:4 R4871 R4872:3 ]
8:19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
8:20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
[E247 R4330:4 R1433:5 ]
8:21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
[R2110:5 R1421:5 R1433:5 ]
8:22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
8:23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and [in] the bond of iniquity.
8:24 Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.
8:25 And they, when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.
8:26 And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.
[R2110 R4332 R5864 R1438:2 Z9208 ]
8:27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,
[R2964:3 R2964:6 R3042 R3043:1 R3616 R3616:4 R4332:3 ]
8:28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.
[R2965:1 R4332:6 ]
8:29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.
[E273 R369B R372:5 R988D R988D R1410 R2964 R2965:2 R4333:2 ]
8:30 And Philip ran thither to [him], and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
[R2965:3 R2965:4 R4333:2 R5864 ]
8:31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.
[R2965:5 R2965:6 R3616:4 R4333:3 R1438:3 R1438:5 ]
8:32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:
[R4590B R4591:2 R5054:1 R1438:5 ]
8:33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.
[R47 R760 R4333:4 R1438:5 ]
8:34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?
8:35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.
[F448 R2110 R2966:4 R1438:5 ]
8:36 And as they went on [their] way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, [here is] water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
[R1539:3 R2966:2 ]
[[8:37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.]]
8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
[R444:3 R760:2 R2111:4 ]
8:39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
[E273 R4334:1 R1438:6 ]
8:40 But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.
9:1 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,
[PD74 R182 R2117 R2117:3 R2968 R2968:3 R2969:1 R4355 R4355:1 R5033 R5191 R5874 Z9209 ]
9:2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.
[R2117:5 R2823:6 R3140 R3169 R4355:5 ]
9:3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
[B134 R1323:2 R1523:1 R1872 R2117:5 R2824:5 R2824:6 R2969:4 R4355:5 R5034:4 R5991 Z9209 ]
9:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
[B133 B281 E277 R1034B R1539 R2117:6 R2824:1 R2969:5 R4355:6 R4433:2 R5053 R5053:3 R5053:6 R5172 R5180:5 R5299:2 R5391B R5394:2 ]
9:5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: [it is] hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
[E277 F215 PD67 R1416:4 R2824:1 R2968:6 R2969:5 R2969:6 R5173:4 R5213:4 R5274 R5274:3 R5579:2 ]
9:6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord [said] unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
[R900:6 R2823 R2824:3 R3220 R1444:5 R1444:6 ]
9:7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.
[A183 A184 R18 R261 R578B R579:1 R2117:6 R4355:5 ]
9:8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought [him] into Damascus.
[F651 R1416:4 R2824:5 R5952 R5952:3,4 ]
9:9 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.
[R1321 R2118:1 R2118:5 R2969:6 R4356:1 ]
9:10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I [am here], Lord.
[R2118:2 R2824:6 R2970:1 ]
9:11 And the Lord [said] unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for [one] called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,
[R2117:2 R4141 R4356:1 R4356:2 R5002:5 ]
9:12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting [his] hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
[R2118:5 R4142:4* ]
9:13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:
9:14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.
9:15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
[F215 F216 M0901 PD74 PD74/88 R24B R549C R550:3 R1521 R1523:2 R1565 R1565:3 R1565:6 R2117 R2823 R2823 R2925:3 R4356:2 R4356:3 R4385:3 R4385:3,5 R5002 R5002:5 R5399 R5400:1 R5594:2 R5891 R5941 R5941:6 R25:1* ]
9:16 For I will show him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
[S1126 R581 R1884:6 R1884B R2825:4 R3012:5 R4356:4 R5147:4 R5147B R581:3 ]
9:17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, [even] Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
[B133 F230 R183:1 R1521 R1523:5 R2970:2 R4356:5 ]
9:18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
[B133 R444:3 R760 R880 R1540:4 R2118:2 R2824:4 R2825:1 R2970:4 R4356:6 R5416:6 R5941:5 R5963:1 R769:2 ]
9:19 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.
[R2118:5 Z9209 ]
9:20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
[F285 R983 R986:5 R983 R2118:5 R2825:3 R1445:1 ]
9:21 But all that heard [him] were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?
9:22 But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.
9:23 And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him:
9:24 But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.
9:25 Then the disciples took him by night, and let [him] down by the wall in a basket.
9:26 And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.
9:27 But Barnabas took him, and brought [him] to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus.
9:28 And he was with them coming in and going out at Jerusalem.
9:29 And he spake boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him.
9:30 [Which] when the brethren knew, they brought him down to Caesarea, and sent him forth to Tarsus.
[R2222 R2222:3 R2997 R2998:3 R5888 ]
9:31 Then had the church[[es]] rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and was edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, was multiplied.
[E173 R2986 R2986:3 R2986:5 R2987:1 R3434 R3435:1 R4132:3 R4335 R4335:2 ]
9:32 And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all [quarters], he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda.
[R1380B R1381:4 R2126 R2987:3 R2987:4 R5875 Z9209 ]
9:33 And there he found a certain man named AEneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy.
[R2987:5 R4335:5 ]
9:34 And Peter said unto him, AEneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately.
[S1117 R61 R61:3* R1048 R1997B R1998:3 R2126 R2987:5 R4335 R4335:5 ]
9:35 And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord.
9:36 Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did.
[R1380B R2126:3,5 R2126:5 R2987:6 R4335:6 R4336:1 R4621 R1451:4 Z9209 ]
9:37 And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they had washed, they laid [her] in an upper chamber.
9:38 And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring [him] that he would not delay to come to them.
9:39 Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and showing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them.
[R4336:1 R4336:2 ]
9:40 But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning [him] to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up.
[R61 R1450:6 ]
9:41 And he gave her [his] hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive.
9:42 And it was known throughout all Joppa; and many believed in the Lord.
[R61:6* R1450:2 ]
9:43 And it came to pass, that he tarried many days in Joppa with one Simon a tanner.
10:1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian [band],
[B71 B214 R369B R786 R988D R988D R1380B R1410 R1521 R1922:6 R1922B R1945 R2222 R2222:3 R2620 R2656B R2988:6 R3438 R3440:4 R3754 R3755:4 R4344 R5021 R5048:3 R5048 R5048:6 R5200 R5200:6 R5453 R5879 R1451:2 Z9209 ]
10:2 [A] devout [man], and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.
[R2133:1 R2222:3 R2620:2 R4344:3 R5321:2 R5776:1 Q600:T ]
10:3 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius.
[R1923:1 R4344:5 ]
10:4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.
[R1945:5 R2989:1 R4344:5 R5776:1 R5832:6 R5834:6 Q174:1 Q600:T ]
10:5 And now send men to Joppa, and call for [one] Simon, whose surname is Peter:
[R2657:6 R4344:2 Q600:T ]
10:6 He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.
[R1381:1 R2989:1 R2989:2 R4345:1 R5776:1 ]
10:7 And when the angel which spake unto Cornelius was departed, he called two of his household servants, and a devout soldier of them that waited on him continually;
10:8 And when he had declared all [these] things unto them, he sent them to Joppa.
10:9 On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:
10:10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,
10:11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:
10:12 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
10:13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
10:14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
10:15 And the voice [spake] unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, [that] call not thou common.
[R187B R4344:3 R4345:4 R4493:3 ]
10:16 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.
10:17 Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made inquiry for Simon's house, and stood before the gate,
[B49 R1980:3 ]
10:18 And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there.
10:19 While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee.
[E274 R369B R372:5 R988D R988D R1410 Z0906 ]
10:20 Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.
10:21 Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what [is] the cause wherefore ye are come?
[R2989:3 R4344:3 R4345:1 R5004:6 ]
10:22 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.
[R3550B R4344:6 R4345:1 R5549 R5550:1 ]
10:23 Then called he them in, and lodged [them]. And on the morrow Peter went away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him.
10:24 And the morrow after they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends.
[R5391B R5394:1 ]
10:25 And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped [him].
[R2989:4 R5378 ]
10:26 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.
[R144:5 R144B R2989:5 ]
10:27 And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together.
10:28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath showed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
[A26 R1087:1 R1088D ]
10:29 Therefore came I [unto you] without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?
[R338 R338:1 R421 R2989:3 ]
10:30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,
[R2132 R2132:2 R4345:1 ]
10:31 And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God.
[R2090:4 R5379:1 ]
10:32 Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of [one] Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee.
[R5776:1 R1451:5 Z9209 ]
10:33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.
[R1521 R1760 R2133:2 ]
10:34 Then Peter opened [his] mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
[R61 R1178 R1180:3 R2457 R2988 R2988:3 R2990:3 R4345:4 R5168 R5168:3 R5531:1 Z9209 Z9209 ]
10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
[R1087:1 R2133:2 R2288 R2986:6 R4344 R4345:4 ]
10:36 The word which [God] sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)
[E134 E136 R246 R586B R587:1 R708B R1068 R1068:2 R1278 R1278:5 R2989:6 R3058 R3059:1 R4308:4 ]
10:37 That word, [I say], ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
[A223 A224 B66 B247 R240 R240:5 R270 R271 R1922:5 R1922B R1451:6 ]
10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
[A81 A223 A224 T27 T37 R271:6 R84 R240:5 R271 R273:1 R288B R289:4 R369B R370:1 R423B R988D R988D R1237 R1237 R1410 R1802 R2133:3 R2157 R2157:3* R4099 R4099:5* R4137:2 R4137B R5227:6 R5227B R5375:6 R270:2 Z8507 Z8507 ]
10:39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
[E213 F211 F215 R1521 R1522:5 ]
10:40 Him God raised up the third day, and showed him openly;
[B124 E136 R2795:2 R4964:5 ]
10:41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, [even] to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
[B124 E213 R773 R2133:4 ]
10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God [to be] the Judge of quick and dead.
[B124 F215 R2133:4 R2989:6 R2990:1 R2990:3 Z9203 ]
10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
[E461 S0521 R2132 R2995 R2997:4 R4472 R4476:1 ]
10:44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
[E214 F448 PD75/89 R198 R375:5 R1034B R1521 R1523:1 R1539 R2222:3 R2990:5 R5394:1 ]
10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
[A223 A224 E207 R189:5 R271 R2990:5 R5832:6 ]
10:46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,
[R1525:2 R2990:5 ]
10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?
[F448 R444:3 R445:4 R760:6 R1034B R1539 R1539:3 R1545:5 R2990:5 R2990:6 R4345:4 ]
10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
[R760 R936C ]
11:1 And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God.
[A26 A59 R1584:3 R1584:4 R2996:1 R1455:2 Z9210 ]
11:2 And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him,
[R1087:2* R2995:3 R2996:1 R2996:2 ]
11:3 Saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them.
11:4 But Peter rehearsed [the matter] from the beginning, and expounded [it] by order unto them, saying,
[R2995 R2996:3 ]
11:5 I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me:
11:6 Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
11:7 And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat.
11:8 But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth.
11:9 But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, [that] call not thou common.
[A59 A80 ]
11:10 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.
11:11 And, behold, immediately there were three men already come unto the house where I was, sent from Caesarea unto me.
11:12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house:
11:13 And he showed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter;
[F680 F681 R2069 R2071:4 R2989:6 R2995:3 R4344:6 R4345:1 R5832 R5833:1 R1451:5 R1451:6 ]
11:14 Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.
[R2988 R5879 ]
11:15 And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning.
[A59 R198 R199:1 R2996:6 ]
11:16 Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.
11:17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as [he did] unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?
11:18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.
[R658 R918B R919:4 R970 R970 R1723 R1727:6 R2133 R2996:4 R2997:1 R1455:2 Z8212 ]
11:19 Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only.
[B263 D478 D480 R984:4 R991 R992:6 R2102:3 R2133 R2133:3 R2997:2 R4357 R4357:2 R5888 R1455:1 Z9210 ]
11:20 And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus.
11:21 And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.
[S1111 R2134:1 R4357 R4357:2 R4357:3 R1455:1 Z9210 ]
11:22 Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch.
[R1087 R2134:3 R2997:6 R2998:1 R4357:3 R4357:4 R1455:2 ]
11:23 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.
[R2997:6 R2997:6 R2998:1 R2998:2 R4357:6 R4357:6 ]
11:24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord.
[R2998:3 R4357:6 R4358:1 ]
11:25 Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul:
[R2134:3 R2998:4 R4358:1 R1455:2 Q697:4 ]
11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
[F285 F494 PD76/90 R584 R2134:4 R2134:6 R2998:5 R4357 R4358:2 R4358:4 R4988:2 R5404:6 R5848:3 ]
11:27 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch.
[R2222 R2997:2,5 ]
11:28 And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.
[R2223:4 R4466 R4467:4 R4526 R4526:1 ]
11:29 Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea:
[R2999:1 R4358:5 R4526:1 R1455:5 ]
11:30 Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.
12:1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth [his] hands to vex certain of the church.
[F230 F231 R1521 R1523:6 R2139:3 R2301:3 R3002 R3002:3 R3003:1 R4346 R4346:2 R5887 Z9210 ]
12:2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
[R3004:2 R3895 R4347:4 R1455:2 ]
12:3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
[F230 R2139:5 R2139:6 R4346:3 R4346:5,6 ]
12:4 And when he had apprehended him, he put [him] in prison, and delivered [him] to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
[F479 F482 R2270B R3003:2 R3003:3 R4346:3 R4346:6 R5191 R5191:6 Z9403 Z9103 ]
12:5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
[R2023:3 R2139 R4347:1 R4347:2 ]
12:6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
[R1048 R2004 R2140:2 R3003:4 R4347:1 ]
12:7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon [him], and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from [his] hands.
[E277 R265:3 R2009:2 R3004:2 R4141 R4347:5 R1455:2 ]
12:8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.
[R4347:5 R4347:6 ]
12:9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
[R3003:5 R4347:5 ]
12:10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.
[R265:2 R2140:3 R303:5 ]
12:11 And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and [from] all the expectation of the people of the Jews.
[R4347:4 R4347:6 ]
12:12 And when he had considered [the thing], he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.
[R2139:6 R2141:2 R2692 R2692:1 R2930 R2932:3 R2941:6 R3003:6 R3004 R3006:3 R3698 R3698:5 R4347:3 Q541:3 Q542:1 ]
12:13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda.
12:14 And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.
12:15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.
[R3004:2 Q20:2 ]
12:16 But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened [the door], and saw him, they were astonished.
[R2140:4 R4348:1 ]
12:17 But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go show these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.
[R2140:4 R3004:3 R3004:3 R4348:1 ]
12:18 Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter.
12:19 And when Herod had sought for him, and found him not, he examined the keepers, and commanded that [they] should be put to death. And he went down from Judaea to Caesarea, and [there] abode.
12:20 And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, having made Blastus the king's chamberlain their friend, desired peace; because their country was nourished by the king's [country].
12:21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
12:22 And the people gave a shout, [saying, It is] the voice of a god, and not of a man.
12:23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
[R3002 R4348:1 ]
12:24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.
12:25 And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled [their] ministry, and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.
[R2141:2 R3006:3 R4357:1 ]
13:1 Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
[E275 F281 F284 PD76 PD76/90 R2140 R3004 R3005:1 R3005:2 R3005:3 R3005:6 R4359 R4360:2 R1461:1 Z9210 ]
13:2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
[E274 PD76/90 R369B R372:5,6 R988D R988D R1410 R2021 R2141:1 R2260:5 R2592:2 R3006:2 R3659:5 R4360:2 R5807 R5808:2 R1461:2 Q515:6 ]
13:3 And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid [their] hands on them, they sent [them] away.
[F285 R812:3 R1720 R2140:3 R3005:6 R4360:4 R5808:2 R5940:4 R1461:4 Q317:2 ]
13:4 So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.
13:5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to [their] minister.
[R986:5 R3006:3 ]
13:6 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name [was] Barjesus:
[R2173:2 R3009:2 ]
13:7 Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.
[R3007:4 R3006:6 ]
13:8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.
[R2169 R4360:4 ]
13:9 Then Saul, (who also [is called] Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,
13:10 And said, O full of all subtlety and all mischief, [thou] child of the devil, [thou] enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
[R196 R261 R438C R439:2 R1174B R1175:6 R2173:2 R3165 R3165:6 R5259 R1461:6 ]
13:11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord [is] upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.
[R3007:1 R4360:5 R5260:1 R1461:5 ]
13:12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.
[R3007:4 R4360:6 ]
13:13 Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.
[R359 R359:1 R2141:3 R4364 R4364:1 R4364:2 R5889 ]
13:14 But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down.
[R2149:2 R3009:3 R4364:3 R1465:2 R1465:3 ]
13:15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, [Ye] men [and] brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.
[R2149:2 R4364:3 R1465:3 ]
13:16 Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with [his] hand said, Men of Israel, and ye that fear God, give audience.
[C252 R2084 R2085:4 R2149:3 R4364:3 ]
13:17 The God of this people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm brought he them out of it.
13:18 And about the time of forty years suffered he their manners in the wilderness.
13:19 And when he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Chanaan, he divided their land to them by lot.
[B49 PD38 R1980 R1980:3 R5645 ]
13:20 And after that he gave [unto them] judges about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet.
[B49 B53 PD38/48 R1980 R1980:3 R1980:4 R5645:2 ]
13:21 And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years.
[B50 R1980 R1980:4,1 R4018:1* ]
13:22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the [son] of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.
[PD40/50 R1708 R1709:1* R2694:6* R2694B R4364:4 Q199:6 ]
13:23 Of this man's seed hath God according to [his] promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus:
[R4364:4 R1465:5 ]
13:24 When John had first preached before his coming the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
[C293 R59B R60:4* R114B R1341:1 R2085:4 R1421:1 Z9207 R1465:6 ]
13:25 And as John fulfilled his course, he said, Whom think ye that I am? I am not [he]. But, behold, there cometh one after me, whose shoes of [his] feet I am not worthy to loose.
13:26 Men [and] brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent.
[R326B R352 R352:1* R2149 R2149:3 R1465:6 Z9211 ]
13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled [them] in condemning [him].
[R1793:6 R2149:5 R4364:4 R1466:1 ]
13:28 And though they found no cause of death [in him], yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain.
13:29 And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took [him] down from the tree, and laid [him] in a sepulchre.
13:30 But God raised him from the dead:
[R352:2* R2795:2 R4364:4 ]
13:31 And he was seen many days of them which came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people.
[E213 F214 R1521 R1522:5 ]
13:32 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers,
[R2593:6 R4364:4 R1465:6 R1466:2 ]
13:33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
[R836 R837:1 R1363 R2149:6 ]
13:34 And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, [now] no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David.
[R1364:2 R2149:6 R2795:2 R1466:2 ]
13:35 Wherefore he saith also in another [psalm], Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
[R2149:6 R4362 ]
13:36 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:
[D603 E345 R3027:6 ]
13:37 But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.
[R2220 R1466:2 ]
13:38 Be it known unto you therefore, men [and] brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
[E461 S0715 R387:3 R1231:2 R2149 R2150:1 R2150:4 R3009 R3009:4 R4364:5 R1466:4 ]
13:39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
[E444 R199 R199:2 R362B R364:1 R391 R1437 R1437:2 R2150:4 R4364:5 R4388:5 R5774:3 R253:5 Z8109 R17:5 Z7908 ]
13:40 Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;
[R1487 R1488:6 ]
13:41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.
[R1048 R1487:3 R1487:6 R1488:1 R1488:5 R1488:6 R1997B R4364 R4364:5 R4238:5 Z0809 R1466:4 R1466:5 ]
13:42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.
13:43 Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.
[R2085:4 R3009 R4365:1 ]
13:44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.
[R1584:3 R3010:1 ]
13:45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.
[R2150:5 R3010:1 R4365:1 R1466:3 ]
13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
[C170 R751 R751:3* R934B R935:4* R1794 R1795:1 R1846 R1846:2 R2300 R2301:1 R2430 R2430:2 R2430:5 R2701 R2702:3 R3010:2 R4365:2 R5048 R5396 R5396:2 R5396:3 R5444 R5445:4 R5455:4 R1466:6 ]
13:47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, [saying], I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
[R2150 R2702:3 R1466:6 Z9211 ]
13:48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
[R142 R605 R606:6 R607:1 R2150:5 R3010:5 R4365:5 R5594 R5594:3 R142:3 R1467:1 ]
13:49 And the word of the Lord was published throughout all the region.
[R3010:4 R1467:2 ]
13:50 But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts.
[R330 R1633:3 R1633B R1633B R3010:4 R4368:3 R1467:4 ]
13:51 But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium.
[R2150:6 R3010:6 ]
13:52 And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.
[R198 R199:1* ]
14:1 And it came to pass in Iconium, that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake, that a great multitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed.
[R4368 R4368:3 R1467:4 ]
14:2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles, and made their minds evil affected against the brethren.
14:3 Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
[D598 R4368:3 R1467:5 ]
14:4 But the multitude of the city was divided: and part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles.
14:5 And when there was an assault made both of the Gentiles, and also of the Jews with their rulers, to use [them] despitefully, and to stone them,
14:6 They were ware of [it], and fled unto Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and unto the region that lieth round about:
[R3011:2 R3011:3 R4368:6 R4369:1 ]
14:7 And there they preached the gospel.
14:8 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked:
[R3011 R5891 Z9211 ]
14:9 The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,
14:10 Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.
[R1998:2 R3011:3 R1471:3 ]
14:11 And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.
[R2150 R3011:3 R4369:1 R4369:2 ]
14:12 And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.
[R2150:6 R3011:3 R4355:3 ]
14:13 Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people.
[R4369:2 R1471:3 ]
14:14 [Which] when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard [of], they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out,

14:15 And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:
[F224 R144:3* R144B R1521 R1526:3 R1884B R2151:1 R2221:5 R2986 R2987:4 R4369:3 R5875 R1471:3 R1471:6 ]
14:16 Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.
[R33 R33:5* R4369:4 ]
14:17 Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.
[R780B R781:4* R2151:12 R4369:4 ]
14:18 And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.
[R4369:4 R1472:1 ]
14:19 And there came thither [certain] Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and, having stoned Paul, drew [him] out of the city, supposing he had been dead.
[R1048 R3012:3 R3012:4 R4369:5 R4369:6 ]
14:20 Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.
[R2009:2 R2151:2 R3012:6 R4369:5 R4369:6 R1472:1 R1472:4 ]
14:21 And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and [to] Iconium, and Antioch,
[R781 R1889 R4369:5 R4369:6 ]
14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, [and] exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

14:23 And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.

14:24 And after they had passed throughout Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia.
14:25 And when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down into Attalia:
14:26 And thence sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been recommended to the grace of God for the work which they fulfilled.
[R1720:2 R1956D R5939 R5940:4 Q521:5 ]
14:27 And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.
14:28 And there they abode long time with the disciples.
15:1 And certain men which came down from Judaea taught the brethren, [and said], Except ye be circumcised after the manner of Moses, ye cannot be saved.
[R397 R549C R751 R1087 R1087:3* R2158 R2158:1 R2158:2 R3018:2 R4374 R4374:1 ]
15:2 When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain other of them, should go up to Jerusalem unto the apostles and elders about this question.
[R1728:1 R2158:2 R2158:2,3,6 R2374:1 R3018:1 R3018:2 R3018:3 R4374:1 R1472:2 R1472:3 ]
15:3 And being brought on their way by the church, they passed through Phenice and Samaria, declaring the conversion of the Gentiles: and they caused great joy unto all the brethren.
[R1957:4 R3017 R3018:4 R1472:3 ]
15:4 And when they were come to Jerusalem, they were received of the church, and [of] the apostles and elders, and they declared all things that God had done with them.
[R970 R970 R1723 R3018:4 ]
15:5 But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command [them] to keep the law of Moses.
[R1130:6 R2158:3 ]
15:6 And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter.
[A278 R836 R837:3 R1889 R3018:3 R3018:6 ]
15:7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men [and] brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.
[R937:2 R972:2 R2158:3 R2657:4,6 R3018:6 R3019:2 ]
15:8 And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as [he did] unto us;
15:9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
[R970 R970 R970 R970 R1723 R1723 R4374 R5892 R1472:6 ]
15:10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
[R1728:2 R1871 R1872:2 R4374:3 R1472:2 ]
15:11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.
[R551:3 R2158 R4374:3 R1472:6 Z9211 ]
15:12 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them.
[R1570 R3250 Z9211 ]
15:13 And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men [and] brethren, hearken unto me:

[E35 R255 R902B R1265B R1267:4,5 R4451:1 Q799:3 ]
15:19 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God:
[E276 R1473:1 ]
15:20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and [from] fornication, and [from] things strangled, and [from] blood.
[F229 R1527:4 R1473:1 Q431:1 ]
15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

15:22 Then pleased it the apostles and elders, with the whole church, to send chosen men of their own company to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas; [namely], Judas surnamed Barsabas, and Silas, chief men among the brethren:
[R1087:5* R3017 R4374:4 R5892 ]
15:23 And they wrote [letters] by them after this manner; The apostles and elders and brethren [send] greeting unto the brethren which are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia:
[R551:3 R1728:2 R1889 R1890:3 R1895:4 R4374:4 R1473:4 ]
15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, [Ye must] be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no [such] commandment:
[R205 R205:3 R276 R1087 R1728:2 R2276 R4374:4 R276:6 ]
15:25 It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul,
15:26 Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:27 We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who shall also tell [you] the same things by mouth.
15:28 For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;
[E275 F229 R369B R372:6 R988D R988D R1410 R1728:2 R1732:1 R2158:5 R3019:3 R3097B Q431:T ]
15:29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
[R1527:4 R2158:6 R2159:1 R2159:4 R3019:4 R3098:3 R4374:4 R4374:5 R4374:6 R1473:1 R1473:4 ]
15:30 So when they were dismissed, they came to Antioch: and when they had gathered the multitude together, they delivered the epistle:
15:31 [Which] when they had read, they rejoiced for the consolation.
[R2276:5 R3019:5 R4375:1 ]
15:32 And Judas and Silas, being prophets also themselves, exhorted the brethren with many words, [[and confirmed [them].]]
[F246 R3019:5 ]
15:33 And after they had tarried [there] a space, they were let go in peace from the brethren unto the apostles.
15:34 Notwithstanding it pleased Silas to abide there still.
15:35 Paul also and Barnabas continued in Antioch, teaching and preaching the word of the Lord, with many others also.
15:36 And some days after Paul said unto Barnabas, Let us go again and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, [and see] how they do.
[R781:5 R4399 R5889 Z9306 ]
15:37 And Barnabas determined to take with them John, whose surname was Mark.
[R2175:3 R4399:1 R1546:1 R1546:2 ]
15:38 But Paul thought not good to take him with them, who departed from them from Pamphylia, and went not with them to the work.
15:39 And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus;
[R2175:3 R2175:4 R1546:1 ]
15:40 And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God.
15:41 And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches.
16:1 Then came he to Derbe and Lystra: and, behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timotheus, the son of a certain woman, which was a Jewess, and believed; but his father [was] a Greek:
[F226 R1521 R1526:4 R3022:1 R4399:2 ]
16:2 Which was well reported of by the brethren that were at Lystra and Iconium.
[R1720 R1720:3 ]
16:3 Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his father was a Greek.
[F226 R1521 R1526:4 R2175:5 R3022:2 R3022:3 ]
16:4 And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep, that were ordained of the apostles and elders which were at Jerusalem.
16:5 And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.
16:6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
[E276 R369B R373:1 R988D R988D R1410 R1545:3 R2175:6 R2175 R3022 R3022:4 R3042 R5903 Z9306 ]
16:7 After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.
[R2688 R3022:5 R4399:2 R1545:3 ]
16:8 And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.
16:9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.
[E276 R373:1 R1442:5* R1521 R2175:6 R2176:1 R2397:1* R2691:3 R4399 R4399:2 R5810 R1545:5 R1546:1 ]
16:10 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.
[E277 R4399:2 R4399:3 ]
16:11 Therefore loosing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the next [day] to Neapolis;
16:12 And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, [and] a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days.
[R331:6 R4399:3 ]
16:13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted [thither].
[F688 R2023:3 R2068 R2692:1 R3022:6 R3122:2 R4399:3 R4399:4 ]
16:14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard [us]: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.
[F448 R1321 R1322:4 R2069 R2176:4 R3023:2 R3023:4 R4399:5 R1556:2 ]
16:15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought [us], saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide [there]. And she constrained us.
[F448 R3023:5 R4399:5 R4399:6 R4400:1 R1539:3 R1546:4 ]
16:16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
[E313 F625 R196 R261 R754 R755:4* R862 R2169 R2169 R2171:5 R2178 R2182:1 R2679 R3540 R4400:1 R4406B R4968B R5799 R5800:1 R5907:3 R5907:6 R5907B R1556:3 Q804:3 ]
16:17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which show unto us the way of salvation.
[R196 R261 R267:4 R697 R867:5 R993C R993C R1048 R1677 R1680:1 R2013 R2180:1 R3122:3 R3309 R3541:2 R4400:2 ]
16:18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
[E313 F625 R266:1 R3309:4 R1998:3 R2171:6 R2173:2 R3309:4 R3727:6 R4400:4 R4969:6 R5355:1 R5908:1 ]
16:19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew [them] into the marketplace unto the rulers,
[E429 R2175:5 R2182:2 R3122:6 R4400:4 R4407:3 Z9307 ]
16:20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,
[R3123:1 R4468 R1556:3 ]
16:21 And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.
16:22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat [them].
[R1697 R2181 R3122 R4400:4 R4400:5 ]
16:23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast [them] into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:
[F231 R1521 R1699:5 R2076:3 R2181:6 R4406:2 R4407:4 ]
16:24 Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.
[F231 R3123:2 ]
16:25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
[R2076 R2076:3 R2182:3 R3123:3 R4406:3 R5379 R5382:1 R5758:4 R5908:5 Q613:2 ]
16:26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.
[R2182:6 R4406:6 R1556:3 R1556:6 ]
16:27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.
16:28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.
[R4406:6 R1556:6 ]
16:29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,
16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
[R3124:1 R4406:6 R4407:1 R1556:6 ]
16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
[Poems R1437 R1437:3 R1744 R2147 R2181 R3065 R3113 R3114:2 R5133 R5133:6 R5423:4 R5423:5 Z9307 ]
16:32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
16:33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed [their] stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.
[F448 R1034B R1034B R1539 R1539 R1539:3 R1544:3 R4407:1 ]
16:34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.
16:35 And when it was day, the magistrates sent the serjeants, saying, Let those men go.
16:36 And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, The magistrates have sent to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace.
16:37 But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast [us] into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out.
[R953 R954:3* R4407:4 ]
16:38 And the serjeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared, when they heard that they were Romans.
16:39 And they came and besought them, and brought [them] out, and desired [them] to depart out of the city.
16:40 And they went out of the prison, and entered into [the house of] Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.
[R4407:5 R4407:6 ]
17:1 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:
[R248 R653:4 R2183 R2183:1 R2183:2 R3130 R3130:1 R3130:2 R3130:4 R3130:6 R4407 R4407:3 R4408:1 R5913 R5913:1 ]
17:2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
17:3 Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.
[R3130:3 R4408:2 ]
17:4 And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few.
[R2183:3 R3130:4 R4408:3 ]
17:5 But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.
[R1633B R2183:4 R2183:2 R2183:3 R2183:4 R2183:6 R3130:4 R3130:6 R4408:3 R4408:5 ]
17:6 And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
[R1633:4 R2183:5 R3130:6 R3131:2 R4408:5 R4813 R4813: ]
17:7 Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, [one] Jesus.
[R4408:3 R4408:4 ]
17:8 And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.
17:9 And when they had taken security of Jason, and of the other, they let them go.
17:10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming [thither] went into the synagogue of the Jews.
[R2183:5 R2183:6 R4408:6 ]
17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
[A348 D66 D161 E205 F232 F245 F729 PD77 PD77/90 R434:5 R434B R993 R993 R2183 R2183:6 R2240:6 R2240 R2240:6 R3131:6 R4408:6 R4409:2 R5375:6 R5913:4 R5913:5 Q688:5 ]
17:12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.
17:13 But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people.
17:14 And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timotheus abode there still.
17:15 And they that conducted Paul brought him unto Athens: and receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timotheus for to come to him with all speed, they departed.
[R2190:2 R3138:3 R4409:4 R4409:2 R1557:1 ]
17:16 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.
[E312 R2191:4 R4409 R4409:3 R5918 ]
17:17 Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.
[R3138:5 R4409:3 Z9708 ]
17:18 Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.
[E70 R1508 R1512:1,2 R1642:5 R1872 R1873:1 R2579 R2580:4 R2617 R2618:1 R3138:6 R4409:3 R4791 R4791:1 R4791:1,6 R4791:3 R4792:2 R4792:3 R4793:1 R4793:2 R4794:5 R1557:2 ]
17:19 And they took him, and brought him unto Areopagus, saying, May we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest, [is]?
17:20 For thou bringest certain strange things to our ears: we would know therefore what these things mean.
17:21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)
17:22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, [Ye] men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
[R2190 R2191:5 R3138 R3138:3 R3138:5 R3139:1 R4409:5 R4409:6 R1557:2 R1557:4 Z9307 ]
17:23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
[R3042 R4410:1 R1402:1 ]
17:25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
[E308 R2090 R2498:1 R4519 R4519:6* ]
17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
[B78 D310 F42 PD22/33 R683 R683:4 R2344 R2344:6 R3042:1 R3139:2 R3139:3 R3304 R3518 R3519:2 R4410:1 R5160 R5160:6 R5357:5 R5413B R5414:1 R1557:4 ]
17:27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
[R525 R2141:2 R2185 R2189:2 R2404 R2404:6 R2574 R2706 R2707:5 R2717:6 R2751 R3139:3 R3312B R3313:1 R4355:4 R4355 R4629 R4629:1 R4629:2 R4657:4 R5769:6 Q310:4 ]
17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
[E390 R2497 R3139:4 R4410:2 R1377:6 Z9203 Q512:2 ]
17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.
[E71 R249:1* R1514B R1515:4 R2961 R2962:2 R4410:2 Q513:1 ]
17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
[R568C R1437:2 R1462 R1463:3 R2191:1 R2962:3 R3037:6 R3037 R3139:5 R3139:6 R4410:2 R4629:4 R4629:4 R5083 R5083 R5083:1 R5083:3 R5083:4 R5083:5 R5083:6 R5084:1 R5114 R5115:2 R5804 R1472:1 Z9211 ]
17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by [that] man whom he hath ordained; [whereof] he hath given assurance unto all [men], in that he hath raised him from the dead.
[A137 A139 C125 D190 D519 E479 F396 T88 PD62 PD62/73 R51 R237 R408:3 R408B R568:3 R697 R891 R993C R993C R1057 R1057:6 R1072 R1154 R1155:4 R1217B R1217B R1228B R1229:2 R1246B R1248:1 R1258B R1261:3 R1278 R1278:2 R1394 R1395:1 R1452 R1600 R1653 R1653:6 R1677 R1852 R1853:6 R1983:6 R1983B R1988 R2132 R2191:1 R2229 R2304:2 R2337 R2351 R2425 R2425 R2425 R2430 R2430 R2431:3 R2433 R2434:5 R2539 R2623 R2624:1 R2624:2 R2662B R2688 R2691:1 R2732 R2733:5 R2794 R2795:2 R2795:4 R2808 R2988 R2992 R2993:3 R2999:3 R3025 R3028:6 R3140:1 R3167 R3167:5 R3304 R3946 R3948:5 R4012 R4013:5 R4206 R4207:4 R4410:3 R4629:5 R4879:3,4 R4879:6 R4879 R4879:6 R4880:1 R4985 R4989 R4990:6 R4996 R4996:6 R5083 R5083:3 R5083:6 R5139 R5362 R5363:5 R5363:5 R5442 R5443:5 R5443:6 R5563B R5774 R5776:2 R5779 R5780:3 R5879 R5882 R5925 R5925:4 Z0707 R1618:6 Z9402 Z9303 R1557:5 R1591:3 Z9310 Z9203 R1450:3 Z9101 Q363:3 Q794:4 Q795:T Q591:T Q651:1 Q651:T Q853:4 ]
17:32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this [matter].
[E350 E351 R1508 R1508 R1512:1 R2191:4 R3138:6 R3140:2 R3140:4 R4410:3 R4410:4 R4410:5 R4791 R4791:1,6 R4791:2,3 R4791:3 R4791:6 R4792:2 R4793:1 R4793:2 R4794:5 R5016:4 R1557:5 ]
17:33 So Paul departed from among them.
17:34 Howbeit certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which [was] Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.
[R4410:5 R5926:3 ]
18:1 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth;
[R2191:2 R2191 R3143 R3143:2 R4416 R4417:1 R5919 R1557:3 Z9307 ]
18:2 And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.
[R646B R647:4 R2191:6 R2207:2 R3143:2 R3143:3 R1557:3 ]
18:3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.
[R619:2* R732B R1020E R2852:3 R3143:3 R3157:6 R4416:2 R5935:2 R1557:3 ]
18:4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.
[R2192:1 R3143:4 R4416:3 R1557:6 ]
18:5 And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was [[pressed in the spirit]] earnestly occupied with the Word, and testified to the Jews [that] Jesus [was] Christ.
[E312 R2192:1 R3144:1 R4416:3 R1557:6 ]
18:6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook [his] raiment, and said unto them, Your blood [be] upon your own heads; I [am] clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.
[R3144:1 R4416:3 R4416:4 R1557:6 ]
18:7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain [man's] house, named Justus, [one] that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.
[R2069 R2071:5 R2192:2 R4416:5 R1557:6 ]
18:8 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.
[F448 R3144:2 R4416:5 R1539:3 ]
18:9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:
[R3144:3 R3190 R4142:4* R4416:5 R1557:6 R1558:5 Z9307 ]
18:10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
[R2191:3 R3143:2 R3287 R4416:5 R4416:6 R4417:1 R2192:4,2 ]
18:11 And he continued [there] a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
[R338 R338:1 R421 R4417:1 ]
18:12 And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgment seat,
18:13 Saying, This [fellow] persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law.
18:14 And when Paul was now about to open [his] mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O [ye] Jews, reason would that I should bear with you:
18:15 But if it be a question of words and names, and [of] your law, look ye [to it]; for I will be no judge of such [matters].
[R140:6 R140B ]
18:16 And he drave them from the judgment seat.
18:17 Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and beat [him] before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things.
18:18 And Paul [after this] tarried [there] yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn [his] head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.
[R1548 R1549:3 R4420:2 ]
18:19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.
[R2069:2 R4420:2 ]
18:20 When they desired [him] to tarry longer time with them, he consented not;
18:21 But bade them farewell, saying, [[I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but]] I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.
[R2206:1 R4420:2 Z9307 ]
18:22 And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the church, he went down to Antioch.
[R2206 R2206:1 R2222:3 R1559:2 ]
18:23 And after he had spent some time [there], he departed, and went over [all] the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order, strengthening all the disciples.
18:24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, [and] mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
[R364B R365:2 R2740 R2741:5 R3152:2 R4420:3 ]
18:25 This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.
[E312 PD56 PD56/69 R2206:4 R3680 R4420:3 Z9307 Z8603 ]
18:26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto [them], and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.
[R534 R536 R537:1 R647:4 R3152:2 R3152:4 R3682:3 R4420:3 R1558:1 ]
18:27 And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:
[R1706 R1707:1 R1720 R1821 R1822:2 ]
18:28 For he mightily convinced the Jews, [and that] publicly, showing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
[R3152:3 R5935 ]
19:1 And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
[R444 R679 R2164B R2206:3 R2206:4 R2930 R3157:3 R4420:3 R4432:1 R5962 Z9307 ]
19:2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
[R2417 R3152:5 R4420:3 R5964:1 R1558:1 ]
19:3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.
[F428 PD56/69 R1034B R1539 R1916B R1942 R2417:3 R2825:5 R3152:5 R3356 R5963:6 R5964:1 R5964:4 Z9408 ]
19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
[R1844:3 R2565 R2565:2 R4420:5 R1687:3 R1558:1 R1558:2 ]
19:5 When they heard [this], they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
[R445:5 R1539:3 R1540:4 R2206:4 R2565:3 R2931:4 R2931:5 R3152:6 R5964:1 R1558:4 ]
19:6 And when Paul had laid [his] hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.
[F284 R812B R1956D R1957:4 R3153:1 R1558:4 ]
19:7 And all the men were about twelve.
19:8 And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God.
19:9 But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus.
[R2206:5 R3157:3 R4421:1 R1558:4 R1558:5 ]
19:10 And this continued by the space of two years; so that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.
19:11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:
[R1744C R1745:4 R2117 R2118:3 R2206:6 R3157 R3158:1 R4421:2 R4794 R5874 Z9307 ]
19:12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.
[E313 R748 R749:4 R1048 R1998:3 R2004 R2006:6 R2362 R2364:6 R4433:2 R4433:5 Z9408 ]
19:13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.
[E313 R3158:1 R4421:4 ]
19:14 And there were seven sons of [one] Sceva, a Jew, [and] chief of the priests, which did so.
19:15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?
[E313 F625 R697 R993C R993C R1677 R1680:1 R2014:1 R2169 R2171:6 ]
19:16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
19:17 And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.
[R2206:5 R3158:2 R4420 ]
19:18 And many that believed came, and confessed, and showed their deeds.
[F625 R2207:1 R3158:3 R4421:4 ]
19:19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all [men]: and they counted the price of them, and found [it] fifty thousand [pieces] of silver.
[F624 R2207:1 R3158:6 R3159:1 R3159:4 R4432:6 ]
19:20 So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.
[E70 R2206 R3159:4 R4421:5 ]
19:21 After these things were ended, Paul purposed in the spirit, when he had passed through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, saying, After I have been there, I must also see Rome.
[E312 R2206 R3159:2 ]
19:22 So he sent into Macedonia two of them that ministered unto him, Timotheus and Erastus; but he himself stayed in Asia for a season.
19:23 And the same time there arose no small stir about that way.
[R957C R3159:2 R4432 R5935 ]
19:24 For a certain [man] named Demetrius, a silversmith, which made silver shrines for Diana, brought no small gain unto the craftsmen;
[R2206:6 R2207:6 R3159:3 R3159:5 R3160:4 R4432:2 R4433:1 ]
19:25 Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this craft we have our wealth.
[R207:2 R2207:5 ]
19:26 Moreover ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands:
[R2207:2 R2207:3 ]
19:27 So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth.
[R958:1 R2206:3 R2207:6 R3159:5 R3160:1 R4432:3 ]
19:28 And when they heard [these sayings], they were full of wrath, and cried out, saying, Great [is] Diana of the Ephesians.
[R2207:2 R3159:5 R4432:2 ]
19:29 And the whole city was filled with confusion: and having caught Gaius and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, Paul's companions in travel, they rushed with one accord into the theatre.
[R1633:3,4 R2207:3 R3159:5 R3159 R4432:3 R4432:4 R5935 ]
19:30 And when Paul would have entered in unto the people, the disciples suffered him not.
[R2207:4 R4432:4 ]
19:31 And certain of the chief of Asia, which were his friends, sent unto him, desiring [him] that he would not adventure himself into the theatre.
19:32 Some therefore cried one thing, and some another: for the assembly was confused; and the more part knew not wherefore they were come together.
19:33 And they drew Alexander out of the multitude, the Jews putting him forward. And Alexander beckoned with the hand, and would have made his defence unto the people.
19:34 But when they knew that he was a Jew, all with one voice about the space of two hours cried out, Great [is] Diana of the Ephesians.
19:35 And when the townclerk had appeased the people, he said, [Ye] men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the [image] which fell down from Jupiter?
[B330 R958:1 R3160:1 R330 ]
19:36 Seeing then that these things cannot be spoken against, ye ought to be quiet, and to do nothing rashly.
19:37 For ye have brought hither these men, which are neither robbers of churches, nor yet blasphemers of your goddess.
[R3160:1 R4432:6 R4433:1 ]
19:38 Wherefore if Demetrius, and the craftsmen which are with him, have a matter against any man, the law is open, and there are deputies: let them implead one another.
19:39 But if ye inquire any thing concerning other matters, it shall be determined in a lawful assembly.
[R3160:4 R4432:5 ]
19:40 For we are in danger to be called in question for this day's uproar, there being no cause whereby we may give an account of this concourse.
[B330 R1633B ]
19:41 And when he had thus spoken, he dismissed the assembly.
20:1 And after the uproar was ceased, Paul called unto [him] the disciples, and embraced [them], and departed for to go into Macedonia.
20:2 And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them much exhortation, he came into Greece,
20:3 And [there] abode three months. And when the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into Syria, he purposed to return through Macedonia.
20:4 And there accompanied him into Asia Sopater of Berea; and of the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus; and Gaius of Derbe, and Timotheus; and of Asia, Tychicus and Trophimus.
20:5 These going before tarried for us at Troas.
20:6 And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.
20:7 And upon the first [day] of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
[E472 F384 F472 R207B R465C R542 R543:5 R802 R839 R1382:4 R1942:6 R2771:4 R4600:2 R4600:2,4 ]
20:8 And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together.
[R983 R984:2 R983 ]
20:9 And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.
[R61 R360 ]
20:10 And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing [him] said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.
[E337 R360:2 ]
20:11 When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.
[R1014:1 R1558:5 ]
20:12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.
20:13 And we went before to ship, and sailed unto Assos, there intending to take in Paul: for so had he appointed, minding himself to go afoot.
20:14 And when he met with us at Assos, we took him in, and came to Mitylene.
20:15 And we sailed thence, and came the next [day] over against Chios; and the next [day] we arrived at Samos, and tarried at Trogyllium; and the next [day] we came to Miletus.
[R2220:6 R3171:3 R4458:1 ]
20:16 For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost.
[R1637C R3171:3 R3178 R3179:1 R4484B R5935B R5942B R5992:2 ]
20:17 And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders of the church.
[R1521 R1524:3 R1890:3 R3171:3 R3172:1 R5304 R5388:3 R5389:1 Z1109 ]
20:18 And when they were come to him, he said unto them, Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at all seasons,
[R3171:6 R5388:3 ]
20:19 Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:
[R1214C R1886 R1886:5* R2221:1 R3820 R4458:2 ]
20:20 [And] how I kept back nothing that was profitable [unto you], but have showed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house,
20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
[R555 R555:3* R4458:2 ]
20:22 And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there:
[R1884B R2220B R4458:2 Z9307 ]
20:23 Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.
[E277 R369B R373:1 R988D R988D R1410 R4458:2 R1558:2 ]
20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
[E191 E337 R110 R438C R110:5 R1664 R1884:6 R1885:2 R2221:2 R3000 R3001:3 R3820:4 R4458:2 R4458:3 R4961B R5823 R5824:5 R1558:5 ]
20:25 And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.
20:26 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I [am] pure from the blood of all [men].
[R652B R1589 R3142 R1558:6 ]
20:27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
[F209 F210 R921B R922:5 R1074B R1088D R1151:2* R1151 R1151:2* R1417 R1419:3 R1570B R1572:1 R1862:4 R2220 R2413 R2414:1 R2419 R2419:3 R2515:1 R3674B R3675:1 R4163C R4458:4 R4549 R4552:2 R5125 R5126:4 R1558:6 ]
20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
[E51 E278 E446 F81 F244 F283 R2808:2 M1114 S1127 R13 R118:3* R118B R231B R369B R373:2 R416B R490C R506B R734 R965 R988D R988D R1229B R1230:3 R1297B R1335B R1336:1 R1410 R1524:3 R1588 R1889 R1890:3 R1956D R2221:2 R2221:3 R2229 R2229:5 R2806 R2808:2 R3135 R3136:1 R3171 R3171:6 R3172:1 R3172:2 R3172:2* R3172:3* R3943 R3943:3 R4085 R4085:2 R4121 R4122:4 R4167 R4168:1 R4183B R4184:3 R4278 R4345 R4346:4 R4458:6 R4459:1 R4459:2 R5052:5 R5076 R5147B R5305:6 R5388:2 R5388:3 R5935:2 R5935:2 R5981 R5981:3 R5992 R1851:1 Z9508 R1559:4 Z8409 Z8301 Q481:4 ]
20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
[F201 F222 R983 R983 R1432 R1890:5 R3142:3 R3142:5 R3172:4 R3331 R3331:3 R3746C R3747:1 R3767 R3767:5 R4459:3 R4459:4 R4728 R4728 R5388:3 R5388:6 R5389:1 R5389:4 R5981 R1319:3 Z9109 Z9109 ]
20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
[F248 S0818 R496 R496:2* R496:3* R2218 R2219:6 R2221:3 R2221:4 R3142:5 R3142:5 R3172:4 R4042B R4044:3 R4459:2 R4472 R4473:6 R4477:4 R4477:5 R5116 R5118:3 R5388:6 R5389:1 R5751 R5752:1 R1319:6 ]
20:31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
[S0319 R1130:6* R3172:5 R3331:2 R4459:3 R4459:4 R4459:5 R4472 ]
20:32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
[R69 R69:4* R619 R985:5 R1005 R1009:5 R3172:6 R4459:5 R4459:6 R69:4* ]
20:33 I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel.
[F287 F288 R4460:4 ]
20:34 Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.
[F287 R449 R449:6* R619:2* R3173:2 R4460:4 R5935:2 ]
20:35 I have showed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
[S0511 R449 R2162 R2163:4* R2220B R2221:5 R3173:2 R4526 R4526:2 R4526:5 R4777:6 R5926:2 R5926C R5935:5 R1559:1 ]
20:36 And when he had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all.
[R2023:3 R3173:5 R1559:4 ]
20:37 And they all wept sore, and fell on Paul's neck, and kissed him,
[R449:6* R1886 R1886:1* R1886:5* R3173:5 ]
20:38 Sorrowing most of all for the words which he spake, that they should see his face no more. And they accompanied him unto the ship.
21:1 And it came to pass, that after we were gotten from them, and had launched, we came with a straight course unto Coos, and the [day] following unto Rhodes, and from thence unto Patara:
[R1434B R2222 R2222:1 R3182 R3182:1 R4466 Z9307 ]
21:2 And finding a ship sailing over unto Phenicia, we went aboard, and set forth.
21:3 Now when we had discovered Cyprus, we left it on the left hand, and sailed into Syria, and landed at Tyre: for there the ship was to unlade her burden.
21:4 And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days: who said to Paul through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem.
[E277 R369B R373:1 R2222:3 R3182:2 R3182:3 R4467:1 ]
21:5 And when we had accomplished those days, we departed and went our way; and they all brought us on our way, with wives and children, till [we were] out of the city: and we kneeled down on the shore, and prayed.
21:6 And when we had taken our leave one of another, we took ship; and they returned home again.
21:7 And when we had finished [our] course from Tyre, we came to Ptolemais, and saluted the brethren, and abode with them one day.
21:8 And the next [day] we that were of Paul's company departed, and came unto Caesarea: and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist, which was [one] of the seven; and abode with him.
[R1548 R2222:3 R3183:1 ]
21:9 And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy.
[R2222:4 R3183:2 R4467:2 ]
21:10 And as we tarried [there] many days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, named Agabus.
[E278 F227 R1410 R1521 R2222:4 R2223:1 R3183:2 ]
21:11 And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver [him] into the hands of the Gentiles.
[E277 R369B R373:1 R988D R988D R3179:1 R3183:2 R3188:6 ]
21:12 And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem.
21:13 Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.
[F227 R1526:5 R1886 R1886:1* R2222 R2223:4 R3182:3 R3182:5 R3183:4 R4467:5 R4467:6 ]
21:14 And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of the Lord be done.
[E277 E278 F227 R1526:5 R2223:4 R3182 R3183:2 R3183:5 ]
21:15 And after those days we took up our carriages, and went up to Jerusalem.
[F284 R4468:4 R4484:2 R1559:2 ]
21:16 There went with us also [certain] of the disciples of Caesarea, and brought with them one Mnason of Cyprus, an old disciple, with whom we should lodge.
[R2932:2 R4468:4 R4468:5 R4484:2 ]
21:17 And when we were come to Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly.
[R3188:2 R4484:2 R4484:3 ]
21:18 And the [day] following Paul went in with us unto James; and all the elders were present.
[F284 R970 R970 R970 R970 R4468:4 R4484:3 ]
21:19 And when he had saluted them, he declared particularly what things God had wrought among the Gentiles by his ministry.
21:20 And when they heard [it], they glorified the Lord, and said unto him, Thou seest, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are which believe; and they are all zealous of the law:
[F227 F230 R1521 R1523:5 R3188:1 Z1104 ]
21:21 And they are informed of thee, that thou teachest all the Jews which are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to circumcise [their] children, neither to walk after the customs.
[F228 F229 R638 R638:6* R1521 R1526:6 R3182:4 R4484:5 R4484:6 R1559:4 ]
21:22 What is it therefore? the multitude must needs come together: for they will hear that thou art come.
21:23 Do therefore this that we say to thee: We have four men which have a vow on them;
[R972:3,5 R972:5 R3188:5 R4484:5 R4484:6 ]
21:24 Them take, and purify thyself with them, and be at charges with them, that they may shave [their] heads: and all may know that those things, whereof they were informed concerning thee, are nothing; but [that] thou thyself also walkest orderly, and keepest the law.
[F228 R3188:3 R4484:5 R4484:6 ]
21:25 As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written [and] concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from [things] offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.
[F229 R1521 R1527:4 R3665 R3666:2 ]
21:26 Then Paul took the men, and the next day purifying himself with them entered into the temple, to signify the accomplishment of the days of purification, until that an offering should be offered for every one of them.
[F228 R972:5 R1559:4 ]
21:27 And when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews which were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him,
[R2085:5 R4484B R5942B Z9307 ]
21:28 Crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all [men] every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place.
[C252 R2084 R2085:5 R4485:1 R5774:1 ]
21:29 (For they had seen before with him in the city Trophimus an Ephesian, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.)
21:30 And all the city was moved, and the people ran together: and they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple: and forthwith the doors were shut.
[R3188 R3188:6 ]
21:31 And as they went about to kill him, tidings came unto the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar.
[R3188:6 R4485:1 ]
21:32 Who immediately took soldiers and centurions, and ran down unto them: and when they saw the chief captain and the soldiers, they left beating of Paul.
21:33 Then the chief captain came near, and took him, and commanded [him] to be bound with two chains; and demanded who he was, and what he had done.
[R1633:4 R3188:6 ]
21:34 And some cried one thing, some another, among the multitude: and when he could not know the certainty for the tumult, he commanded him to be carried into the castle.
21:35 And when he came upon the stairs, so it was, that he was borne of the soldiers for the violence of the people.
21:36 For the multitude of the people followed after, crying, Away with him.
21:37 And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek?
[R1133B R3188:6 R3189:1 ]
21:38 Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?
21:39 But Paul said, I am a man [which am] a Jew of Tarsus, [a city] in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people.
[R179B R1633:4 R2117:2 R3189:2 R4485:3 R1559:5 ]
21:40 And when he had given him licence, Paul stood on the stairs, and beckoned with the hand unto the people. And when there was made a great silence, he spake unto [them] in the Hebrew tongue, saying,
22:1 Men, brethren, and fathers, hear ye my defence [which I make] now unto you.
22:2 (And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to them, they kept the more silence: and he saith,)
22:3 I am verily a man [which am] a Jew, born in Tarsus, [a city] in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, [and] taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.
[R1671 R1671:6 R2117:3 R2823:5 R4355:2 R5553:1 Z9405 ]
22:4 And I persecuted this way unto the death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women.
[F339 R2823 R2823:3,5 ]
22:5 As also the high priest doth bear me witness, and all the estate of the elders: from whom also I received letters unto the brethren, and went to Damascus, to bring them which were there bound unto Jerusalem, for to be punished.
22:6 And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light round about me.
[R2117 R2117:5 R2823 R2824:1 R2968 R2969:4 R5874 ]
22:7 And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
[R91 R92:4 R2823:2 R2823:3 R2824:1 R2824:2 R2969:5 R5299:2 ]
22:8 And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.
[R2824:1 R2824:2 R5274:3 ]
22:9 And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me.
[R2117:6 R2824:3 R2969:4 ]
22:10 And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do.
[R2117:6 R2824:3 R2824:4 R2824:5 ]
22:11 And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus.
[R2824:5 R2824:6 ]
22:12 And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt [there],
[R2118:6 R2824:6 ]
22:13 Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him.
22:14 And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth.
[R2825:2 Z9307 ]
22:15 For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.
[A70 R2825:3 R3022 R3023:5 R5942B R1558:3 ]
22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
[M1202 R1034B R1539 R1539:3 R2825:4 R2825:5 R1421:1 Z9207 ]
22:17 And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance;
22:18 And saw him saying unto me, Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.
22:19 And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on thee:
22:20 And when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him.
[R2951 R2952:3 R2957B R2958:4 ]
22:21 And he said unto me, Depart: for I will send thee far hence unto the Gentiles.
22:22 And they gave him audience unto this word, and [then] lifted up their voices, and said, Away with such a [fellow] from the earth: for it is not fit that he should live.
[R538 R3189:3 ]
22:23 And as they cried out, and cast off [their] clothes, and threw dust into the air,
22:24 The chief captain commanded him to be brought into the castle, and bade that he should be examined by scourging; that he might know wherefore they cried so against him.
[R3189:3 R4485:5 ]
22:25 And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said unto the centurion that stood by, Is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman, and uncondemned?
[R954:3* R2117:2 R4485:5 R5897:6 R5942:3 ]
22:26 When the centurion heard [that], he went and told the chief captain, saying, Take heed what thou doest: for this man is a Roman.
22:27 Then the chief captain came, and said unto him, Tell me, art thou a Roman? He said, Yea.
22:28 And the chief captain answered, With a great sum obtained I this freedom. And Paul said, But I was [free] born.
[R478:5 R478C ]
22:29 Then straightway they departed from him which should have examined him: and the chief captain also was afraid, after he knew that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him.
22:30 On the morrow, because he would have known the certainty wherefore he was accused of the Jews, he loosed him from [his] bands, and commanded the chief priests and all their council to appear, and brought Paul down, and set him before them.
[R4485:3 R4485 R4485:6 ]
23:1 And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men [and] brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.
[R2823:3 R3190:2 R3737 R5952:2 R5952:6 ]
23:2 And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth.
[R3190:2 R5952:3 ]
23:3 Then said Paul unto him, God shall smite thee, [thou] whited wall: for sittest thou to judge me after the law, and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law?
[R310B R5952:3 ]
23:4 And they that stood by said, Revilest thou God's high priest?
23:5 Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.
[E68 R1034B R1539 R2117 R3190:3 R3738:2 R3738:3 R5874 R5952:2 R5952:3 R5952:4 R5952:5 ]
23:6 But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men [and] brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.
[C117 E345 F664 F665 R241:3 R751 R751:2* R1512:1,2 R2617 R2618:1 R3124:5 R3190:4 R3190:6 R4961 R4961:4 R4961:5 R4986:3 R5468:4 R5897:6 R5952:6 ]
23:7 And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided.
23:8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both.
[E313 R5389:2 ]
23:9 And there arose a great cry: and the scribes [that were] of the Pharisees' part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.
23:10 And when there arose a great dissension, the chief captain, fearing lest Paul should have been pulled in pieces of them, commanded the soldiers to go down, and to take him by force from among them, and to bring [him] into the castle.
[R3190:4 R4486:5 R5953:1 ]
23:11 And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.
[F227 R1521 R1526:5 R3190 R3190:1 R3190:2 R4499:5 R1558:3 R1558:5 Z9307 ]
23:12 And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.
23:13 And they were more than forty which had made this conspiracy.
[R3190:5 R5953:4 ]
23:14 And they came to the chief priests and elders, and said, We have bound ourselves under a great curse, that we will eat nothing until we have slain Paul.
23:15 Now therefore ye with the council signify to the chief captain that he bring him down unto you to morrow, as though ye would inquire something more perfectly concerning him: and we, or ever he come near, are ready to kill him.
23:16 And when Paul's sister's son heard of their lying in wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul.
23:17 Then Paul called one of the centurions unto [him], and said, Bring this young man unto the chief captain: for he hath a certain thing to tell him.
23:18 So he took him, and brought [him] to the chief captain, and said, Paul the prisoner called me unto [him], and prayed me to bring this young man unto thee, who hath something to say unto thee.
23:19 Then the chief captain took him by the hand, and went [with him] aside privately, and asked [him], What is that thou hast to tell me?
23:20 And he said, The Jews have agreed to desire thee that thou wouldest bring down Paul to morrow into the council, as though they would inquire somewhat of him more perfectly.
23:21 But do not thou yield unto them: for there lie in wait for him of them more than forty men, which have bound themselves with an oath, that they will neither eat nor drink till they have killed him: and now are they ready, looking for a promise from thee.
23:22 So the chief captain [then] let the young man depart, and charged [him, See thou] tell no man that thou hast showed these things to me.
23:23 And he called unto [him] two centurions, saying, Make ready two hundred soldiers to go to Caesarea, and horsemen threescore and ten, and spearmen two hundred, at the third hour of the night;
23:24 And provide [them] beasts, that they may set Paul on, and bring [him] safe unto Felix the governor.
23:25 And he wrote a letter after this manner:
23:26 Claudius Lysias unto the most excellent governor Felix [sendeth] greeting.
[R3188 R4485:1 ]
23:27 This man was taken of the Jews, and should have been killed of them: then came I with an army, and rescued him, having understood that he was a Roman.
23:28 And when I would have known the cause wherefore they accused him, I brought him forth into their council:
23:29 Whom I perceived to be accused of questions of their law, but to have nothing laid to his charge worthy of death or of bonds.
23:30 And when it was told me how that the Jews laid wait for the man, I sent straightway to thee, and gave commandment to his accusers also to say before thee what [they had] against him. Farewell.
23:31 Then the soldiers, as it was commanded them, took Paul, and brought [him] by night to Antipatris.
23:32 On the morrow they left the horsemen to go with him, and returned to the castle:
23:33 Who, when they came to Caesarea, and delivered the epistle to the governor, presented Paul also before him.
23:34 And when the governor had read [the letter], he asked of what province he was. And when he understood that [he was] of Cilicia;
23:35 I will hear thee, said he, when thine accusers are also come. And he commanded him to be kept in Herod's judgment hall.
24:1 And after five days Ananias the high priest descended with the elders, and [with] a certain orator [named] Tertullus, who informed the governor against Paul.
[R4499 R4499:1,3,2 R4499:2 R5953 ]
24:2 And when he was called forth, Tertullus began to accuse [him], saying, Seeing that by thee we enjoy great quietness, and that very worthy deeds are done unto this nation by thy providence,
[R3194:2 R4499:2 ]
24:3 We accept [it] always, and in all places, most noble Felix, with all thankfulness.
24:4 Notwithstanding, that I be not further tedious unto thee, I pray thee that thou wouldest hear us of thy clemency a few words.
24:5 For we have found this man [a] pestilent [fellow], and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes:
[R576 R577:5 R3194:3 R4499:2 R1564:2 ]
24:6 Who also hath gone about to profane the temple: whom we took, and would have judged according to our law.
24:7 But the chief captain Lysias came [upon us], and with great violence took [him] away out of our hands,
24:8 Commanding his accusers to come unto thee: by examining of whom thyself mayest take knowledge of all these things, whereof we accuse him.
24:9 And the Jews also assented, saying that these things were so.
24:10 Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself:
[R3194:2 R3194:2 R3194B R4499:2 Z9308 ]
24:11 Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship.
24:12 And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:
24:13 Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me.
[R3194:5 R4499:3 ]
24:14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
[F655 F665 R822 R1074B R1570B R3194:5 R3791 R3792:3 R4163C R4499:3 R1564:2 R1570:6 ]
24:15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
[A60 C117 E345 F664 R41B R240 R349 R351:1 R384 R412C R721D R822:6* R1016B R1043 R1060 R1213 R1213:5* R1246B R1357 R1371C R1436:6* R1476B R1508 R1510:3 R1512:1 R1642:5 R2596:2 R2607 R2611:3 R2611:4 R2612 R2612:4 R2759D R2759E R3194:6 R3195:1 R3852 R3854:5 R4118 R4118:6 R4499:3 R4499:5 R4499:6 R4526B R4527:5 R4533 R4989:1 R4989:3 R4989:5 R5016C R5017:4 R5107B R5108:3 R5131:3 R5131:6 R5131B R5445 R5446:1 R5608:5 R5611 R5611:5 R5953 Z1001 Z1001 R1618:2 Z9402 Q818:4 ]
24:16 And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and [toward] men.
[M1124 R2425 R2670 R2671:2 R2671:3 R5425:2 ]
24:17 Now after many years I came to bring alms to my nation, and offerings.
24:18 Whereupon certain Jews from Asia found me purified in the temple, neither with multitude, nor with tumult.
24:19 Who ought to have been here before thee, and object, if they had ought against me.
24:20 Or else let these same [here] say, if they have found any evil doing in me, while I stood before the council,
24:21 Except it be for this one voice, that I cried standing among them, Touching the resurrection of the dead I am called in question by you this day.
[R1434B R1436:6* R1508 R1508:6 R1512:1 ]
24:22 And when Felix heard these things, having more perfect knowledge of [that] way, he deferred them, and said, When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will know the uttermost of your matter.
[R932:1 R4500:1 ]
24:23 And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and to let [him] have liberty, and that he should forbid none of his acquaintance to minister or come unto him.
24:24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.
24:25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.
[A309 R526 R527:1* R721D R722:1 R756 R931B R932:1 R932:2 R932:4 R2069 R2099:5* R2099 R2612 R2759E R3195:3 R3195:4 R4500:1 R4500:4 R5989 Z1001 ]
24:26 He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.
[R3195:3 R4499:4 ]
24:27 But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix' room: and Felix, willing to show the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.
25:1 Now when Festus was come into the province, after three days he ascended from Caesarea to Jerusalem.
[R5960 R1568:3 Z9308 ]
25:2 Then the high priest and the chief of the Jews informed him against Paul, and besought him,
25:3 And desired favour against him, that he would send for him to Jerusalem, laying wait in the way to kill him.
25:4 But Festus answered, that Paul should be kept at Caesarea, and that he himself would depart shortly [thither].
25:5 Let them therefore, said he, which among you are able, go down with [me], and accuse this man, if there be any wickedness in him.
25:6 And when he had tarried among them more than ten days, he went down unto Caesarea; and the next day sitting on the judgment seat commanded Paul to be brought.
25:7 And when he was come, the Jews which came down from Jerusalem stood round about, and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which they could not prove.
25:8 While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all.
25:9 But Festus, willing to do the Jews a pleasure, answered Paul, and said, Wilt thou go up to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things before me?
[R4500:6 R1568:3 ]
25:10 Then said Paul, I stand at Caesar's judgment seat, where I ought to be judged: to the Jews have I done no wrong, as thou very well knowest.
[R568C R954:3* R1555:6* R5189 R5189:3 ]
25:11 For if I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof these accuse me, no man may deliver me unto them. I appeal unto Caesar.
25:12 Then Festus, when he had conferred with the council, answered, Hast thou appealed unto Caesar? unto Caesar shalt thou go.
[R1568:6 Z9308 ]
25:13 And after certain days king Agrippa and Bernice came unto Caesarea to salute Festus.
[R4501:1 R1568:6 ]
25:14 And when they had been there many days, Festus declared Paul's cause unto the king, saying, There is a certain man left in bonds by Felix:
25:15 About whom, when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews informed [me], desiring [to have] judgment against him.
25:16 To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before that he which is accused have the accusers face to face, and have licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him.
25:17 Therefore, when they were come hither, without any delay on the morrow I sat on the judgment seat, and commanded the man to be brought forth.
25:18 Against whom when the accusers stood up, they brought none accusation of such things as I supposed:
25:19 But had certain questions against him of their own superstition, and of one Jesus, which was dead, whom Paul affirmed to be alive.
25:20 And because I doubted of such manner of questions, I asked [him] whether he would go to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these matters.
25:21 But when Paul had appealed to be reserved unto the hearing of Augustus, I commanded him to be kept till I might send him to Caesar.
25:22 Then Agrippa said unto Festus, I would also hear the man myself. To morrow, said he, thou shalt hear him.
25:23 And on the morrow, when Agrippa was come, and Bernice, with great pomp, and was entered into the place of hearing, with the chief captains, and principal men of the city, at Festus' commandment Paul was brought forth.
25:24 And Festus said, King Agrippa, and all men which are here present with us, ye see this man, about whom all the multitude of the Jews have dealt with me, both at Jerusalem, and [also] here, crying that he ought not to live any longer.
[B330 R791 R791:5 ]
25:25 But when I found that he had committed nothing worthy of death, and that he himself hath appealed to Augustus, I have determined to send him.
[B330 Z9308 ]
25:26 Of whom I have no certain thing to write unto my lord. Wherefore I have brought him forth before you, and specially before thee, O king Agrippa, that, after examination had, I might have somewhat to write.
25:27 For it seemeth to me unreasonable to send a prisoner, and not withal to signify the crimes [laid] against him.
[R1569:2 Z9308 ]
26:1 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself:
[R3002:3 R4346:3 R4501:1 R5960B R1568:6 R1569:1 Z9308 ]
26:2 I think myself happy, king Agrippa, because I shall answer for myself this day before thee touching all the things whereof I am accused of the Jews:
26:3 Especially [because I know] thee to be expert in all customs and questions which are among the Jews: wherefore I beseech thee to hear me patiently.
[R2790 R2790:6 R4501:1 Q740:4 ]
26:4 My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first among mine own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Jews;
[R1434B R1671 ]
26:5 Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.
[R1130:6 R1576:3 R1671:6 ]
26:6 And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers:
[R1435:4* R1747 R2245:3 R2245 R2853 R2854:5 R3451C R3452:1 ]
26:7 Unto which [promise] our twelve tribes, instantly serving [God] day and night, hope to come. For which hope's sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews.
[B206 B207 R1747:6* R2081 R2081B R2082:4 R2085:5 R2245:3 R2417 R2854:6 R3130 R3191B R3192:1 R4098 R4098:3 R4318 R4320:3 R4451 R4451:4 R4496 R4497:1 R4501:2 R5243 R5244:5 R5836 R5837:2 R5913 R5913:2 R5913:2 ]
26:8 Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?
[R41B R603 R604:2* R751:2 R763 R822:6* R846 R846:5 R875:3* R875B R926C R1016B R1259:2 R1434B R1435:5,6* R1436:1 ]
26:9 I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
[A12 R549C R551:1 R2823:3 R5034:2 R5172 R5874 R1444:3 ]
26:10 Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against [them].
26:11 And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled [them] to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted [them] even unto strange cities.
[R2823:3 R2823:3 R4501:4 R5172:6 ]
26:12 Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests,
26:13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.
[R578B R579:1 R1415 R1521 R1522:2 R1690 R1816 R2117:5 R5034:4 R5035:2 R5222 R5222:2 R5416:6 R5829 R5830:2 ]
26:14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? [it is] hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
[R2117:6 R2952:5 R4433:2 R5299:2 ]
26:15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
[R1693:1 R5054:4 R5213:4 ]
26:16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
26:17 Delivering thee from the people, and [from] the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
26:18 To open their eyes, [and] to turn [them] from darkness to light, and [from] the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
[A18 F609 R555 R555:5* R3165:6 R555:5* Q832:4 ]
26:19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
[R2823 R2825:6 R3196B R4356:3 R5960B Z9308 R1444:6 R1445:1 ]
26:20 But showed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and [then] to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
26:21 For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill [me].
26:22 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:
[S0720 R2618:4 R3197:3 R3197:4 ]
26:23 That Christ should suffer, [and] that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should show light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.
[R227 R227:2 R751:2* R1258B R1508 R1512:1 R2617 R2618:2 R3173 R3174:4 R3197:4 R3197:5 R3563 R3563:3 R3563:4 R4141 R4142:4 R4501:2 ]
26:24 And as he thus spake for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, thou art beside thyself; much learning doth make thee mad.
[A86 R646B R2615 R2616:3 R3197:5 R4501:5 R1651:4 ]
26:25 But he said, I am not mad, most noble Festus; but speak forth the words of truth and soberness.
[R646:4 R4501:5 ]
26:26 For the king knoweth of these things, before whom also I speak freely: for I am persuaded that none of these things are hidden from him; for this thing was not done in a corner.
[R3197:5 R3198:2,4 ]
26:27 King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? I know that thou believest.
[R3198:4 R4501:5 ]
26:28 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.
[R584:3 R3002 R4346 R4346:2 R4346:3 R4992 R4993:5 R1569:1 R1569:4 ]
26:29 And Paul said, I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except these bonds.
[F668 F669 R2011 R2011:5* R2011:5* R1569:4 ]
26:30 And when he had thus spoken, the king rose up, and the governor, and Bernice, and they that sat with them:
[R646:5 R3197:1 R1569:2 ]
26:31 And when they were gone aside, they talked between themselves, saying, This man doeth nothing worthy of death or of bonds.
26:32 Then said Agrippa unto Festus, This man might have been set at liberty, if he had not appealed unto Caesar.
[R954:3* R3198:4 ]
27:1 And when it was determined that we should sail into Italy, they delivered Paul and certain other prisoners unto [one] named Julius, a centurion of Augustus' band.
[R3204:2 R4505 ]
27:2 And entering into a ship of Adramyttium, we launched, meaning to sail by the coasts of Asia; [one] Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, being with us.
[R2222 R2222:1 ]
27:3 And the next [day] we touched at Sidon. And Julius courteously entreated Paul, and gave [him] liberty to go unto his friends to refresh himself.
27:4 And when we had launched from thence, we sailed under Cyprus, because the winds were contrary.
27:5 And when we had sailed over the sea of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myra, [a city] of Lycia.
27:6 And there the centurion found a ship of Alexandria sailing into Italy; and he put us therein.
27:7 And when we had sailed slowly many days, and scarce were come over against Cnidus, the wind not suffering us, we sailed under Crete, over against Salmone;
27:8 And, hardly passing it, came unto a place which is called The fair havens; nigh whereunto was the city [of] Lasea.
27:9 Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because the fast was now already past, Paul admonished [them],
[R3204:3 R4505:3 ]
27:10 And said unto them, Sirs, I perceive that this voyage will be with hurt and much damage, not only of the lading and ship, but also of our lives.
27:11 Nevertheless the centurion believed the master and the owner of the ship, more than those things which were spoken by Paul.
27:12 And because the haven was not commodious to winter in, the more part advised to depart thence also, if by any means they might attain to Phenice, [and there] to winter; [which is] an haven of Crete, and lieth toward the south west and north west.
[R3204:2 R4505:3 ]
27:13 And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained [their] purpose, loosing [thence], they sailed close by Crete.
27:14 But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon.
27:15 And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up into the wind, we let [her] drive.
27:16 And running under a certain island which is called Clauda, we had much work to come by the boat:
27:17 Which when they had taken up, they used helps, undergirding the ship; and, fearing lest they should fall into the quicksands, struck sail, and so were driven.
27:18 And we being exceedingly tossed with a tempest, the next [day] they lightened the ship;
27:19 And the third [day] we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship.
27:20 And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on [us], all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.
[R4505:6 R4506:1 R4506:1 ]
27:21 But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss.
27:22 And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of [any man's] life among you, but of the ship.
[E338 R3205:1 R3204:6 R3205:1 R4506:2 R4506:3 ]
27:23 For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve,
[F227 R1526:5,6 Z9307 ]
27:24 Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.
[F227 R1526:5 R3190:1 R3204:3 R3204:5 R1558:5 R1569:2 ]
27:25 Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.
27:26 Howbeit we must be cast upon a certain island.
27:27 But when the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adria, about midnight the shipmen deemed that they drew near to some country;
[R4506 R4506:3 ]
27:28 And sounded, and found [it] twenty fathoms: and when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, and found [it] fifteen fathoms.
27:29 Then fearing lest we should have fallen upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day.
27:30 And as the shipmen were about to flee out of the ship, when they had let down the boat into the sea, under colour as though they would have cast anchors out of the foreship,
[R3205:2 Z9308 ]
27:31 Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, Except these abide in the ship, ye cannot be saved.
[R3205:4 R3205:4 R4506:6 R1569:5 ]
27:32 Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat, and let her fall off.
27:33 And while the day was coming on, Paul besought [them] all to take meat, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that ye have tarried and continued fasting, having taken nothing.
27:34 Wherefore I pray you to take [some] meat: for this is for your health: for there shall not an hair fall from the head of any of you.
27:35 And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to God in presence of them all: and when he had broken [it], he began to eat.
[R1382:5 R1382B ]
27:36 Then were they all of good cheer, and they also took [some] meat.
27:37 And we were in all in the ship two hundred threescore and sixteen souls.
[R205 R205:2 ]
27:38 And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, and cast out the wheat into the sea.
27:39 And when it was day, they knew not the land: but they discovered a certain creek with a shore, into the which they were minded, if it were possible, to thrust in the ship.
27:40 And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed [themselves] unto the sea, and loosed the rudder bands, and hoisted up the mainsail to the wind, and made toward shore.
27:41 And falling into a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the forepart stuck fast, and remained unmoveable, but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the waves.
27:42 And the soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out, and escape.
27:43 But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from [their] purpose; and commanded that they which could swim should cast [themselves] first [into the sea], and get to land:
27:44 And the rest, some on boards, and some on [broken pieces] of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.
[R3205:5 R1569:2 R1569:6 ]
28:1 And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.
[R2688 R4506:5 Z9308 ]
28:2 And the barbarous people showed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.
[R3205:2 R4506:6 ]
28:3 And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid [them] on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
28:4 And when the barbarians saw the [venomous] beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.
28:5 And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.
28:6 Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.
28:7 In the same quarters were possessions of the chief man of the island, whose name was Publius; who received us, and lodged us three days courteously.
28:8 And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him.
[R4507:1 R1689:4 ]
28:9 So when this was done, others also, which had diseases in the island, came, and were healed:
28:10 Who also honoured us with many honours; and when we departed, they laded [us] with such things as were necessary.
28:11 And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux.
[R4507 R4507:1 R5975 ]
28:12 And landing at Syracuse, we tarried [there] three days.
28:13 And from thence we fetched a compass, and came to Rhegium: and after one day the south wind blew, and we came the next day to Puteoli:
28:14 Where we found brethren, and were desired to tarry with them seven days: and so we went toward Rome.
28:15 And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as Appii forum, and The three taverns: whom when Paul saw, he thanked God, and took courage.
[R3208:3 R4507:2 R1570:1 ]
28:16 And when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard: but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself with a soldier that kept him.
[R1434B R3208 R3208:1 R3208:5 R4507:3 ]
28:17 And it came to pass, that after three days Paul called the chief of the Jews together: and when they were come together, he said unto them, Men [and] brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people, or customs of our fathers, yet was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans.
[R3208:3 R3208:6 R3209:1 R4507:3 R4507:4 R1570:1 ]
28:18 Who, when they had examined me, would have let [me] go, because there was no cause of death in me.
28:19 But when the Jews spake against [it], I was constrained to appeal unto Caesar; not that I had ought to accuse my nation of.
28:20 For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see [you], and to speak with [you]: because that for the hope of Israel I am bound with this chain.

28:21 And they said unto him, We neither received letters out of Judaea concerning thee, neither any of the brethren that came showed or spake any harm of thee.
28:22 But we desire to hear of thee what thou thinkest: for as concerning this sect, we know that every where it is spoken against.

28:23 And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into [his] lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and [out of] the prophets, from morning till evening.
[R1570:2 R3209:2 R4507:5 ]
28:24 And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.
28:25 And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias the prophet unto our fathers,
[R1741 R4507:5 ]
28:26 Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:
28:27 For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
[R1347:6 R4099 R4099:3* R4099:5* R1570:4 ]
28:28 Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and [that] they will hear it.
[R1435:4* R1570:4 ]
28:29 And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.
28:30 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him,
[F672 R540 R540:6* R984:2 R1827 R1827:4 R3208:2 R3208:5 R3209:4 R4355:2 R1570:4 ]
28:31 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.
