1 After that, Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth, 2 and found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy with his wife Priscilla: because that the Emperor Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome. And he drew unto them. 3 And because he was of the same craft he abode with them and wrought: their craft was to make tents. 4 And he preached in the synagogue every Sabbath day; And exhorted the Jews and the gentiles.
5 When Silas and Timothy were come from Macedonia, Paul was constrained by the spirit, to testify to the Jews that Jesus was very Christ. 6 And when they said contrary, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment and said unto them, "Your blood upon your own heads. And from henceforth I go blameless unto the gentiles." 7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain man's house named Justus, a worshipper of God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue. 8 Howbeit, one Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his household. And many of the Corinthians gave audience and believed, and were baptised.
9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, "Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: 10 for I am with thee, and no man shall invade thee that shall hurt thee. For I have much people in this city." 11 And he continued there a year and six months, and taught them the word of God.
12 When Gallio was ruler of the country of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgment seat, 13 saying, "This fellow counceleth men to worship God contrary to the law."
14 And as Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, "If it were a matter of wrong, or an evil deed to ye, reason would that I should hear you: 15 but if it be a question of words, or of names, or of your law, look ye to it yourselves. For I will be no judge in such matters." 16 And he drave them from the seat. 17 Then took all the Greeks Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the Synagogue, and smote him before the judge's seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things.
18 Paul, after this, tarried there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, Priscilla and Aquila accompanying him. And he shore his head in Cenchreae. For he had a vow. 19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the Synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews. 20 When they desired him to tarry longer time with them, he consented not, 21 but bade them fare well saying, "I must needs, at this feast that cometh, be in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you if God will."
22 And he departed from Ephesus and came unto Caesarea: and ascended and saluted the congregation, 23 and departed unto Antioch, and when he had tarried there a while, he departed, and went over all the country of Galatia and Phrygia by order, strengthening all the disciples.
24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria came to Ephesus: an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures. 25 The same was informed in the way of the Lord, and he spake fervently in the spirit, and taught diligently the things of the Lord, and knew but the baptism of John only. 26 And the same began to speak boldly in the Synagogue. And when Priscilla and Aquila had heard him: they took him unto them; And expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly. 27 And when he was disposed to go into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him. After he was come thither he helped them much, which had believed through grace. 28 And mightily he overcame the Jews and that openly showing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
