And there accompanied him Sopater, son of Pyrrhus, a Beraean; and of the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus; and Galas of Derbe, and, Timothy; and, of Asia, Tychicus and Trophimus.

But the brethren straightway sent away both Paul and Silas by night to Beraea; who, indeed, having arrived, went into the synagogue of the Jews.

But, when the Jews from Thessalonica knew that also in Beraea the word of God was proclaimed by Paul, they came there also, stirring up and troubling the multitudes,


But, when the Jews from Thessalonica knew that also in Beraea the word of God was proclaimed by Paul, they came there also, stirring up and troubling the multitudes,

But, as they were speaking to the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them, being greatly troubled because of their teaching the people, and declaring in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. And they laid hands on them, and put them in custody till the next day; for it was now evening.

But, having ordered them to go aside out of the Sanhedrin, they were conferring one with another, saying, "What shall we do to these men? for, indeed, that a notable sign has been done through them is manifest to all those dwelling in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it; but, that it spread no further among the people, let us threaten them, that they speak no more to any man in This Name." read more.
And, having called them they charged them not to speak at all, nor teach, in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John, answering, said to them, "Whether it is right in the sight of God to hearken to you, rather than to God, judge ye; for we cannot but speak the things which we saw and heard." And they, when they had further threatened them, released them, finding no way to punish them, on account of the people; because all were glorifying God for what had taken place;


But, when the Jews from Thessalonica knew that also in Beraea the word of God was proclaimed by Paul, they came there also, stirring up and troubling the multitudes,

Now they were listening to him up to this word, and they lifted up their voice, saying, "Away with such a one from the earth; for it is not fit that he should live!"

But the Jews, seeing the multitudes, were filled with jealousy, and contradicted the things spoken by Paul, blaspheming.

But the Jews, moved with jealousy, and taking to themselves certain evil men of the rabble, and gathering a multitude, were setting the city in an uproar; and, assaulting the house of Jason, they were seeking them to lead them, forth to the populace.

I Say, then, did they stumble, that they might fall? It could not be! But by their trespass salvation has come to the gentiles to provoke them to rivalry.

For ye, brethren, became imitators of the assemblies of God, that are in Judaea in Christ Jesus; because ye suffered the same things from your own countrymen, as they also did from the Jews; who both killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out, and pleased not God, and are contrary to all men; forbidding us to speak to the gentiles, that they might be saved, for the filling up of their sins always; and the wrath came upon them to the uttermost.


And, after some days, Paul said to Barnabas, "Turning about, let us visit the brethren in every city, in which we proclaimed the word of the Lord, and see how they are doing." And Barnabas was desiring to take with them John also, who was called Mark. But Paul was not thinking it proper to take him with them, who withdrew from them from Pamphylia, and went not with them to the work. read more.
And there arose a sharp contention, so that they parted one from the other; and Barnabas, taking with him Mark, sailed away to Cyprus. And Paul, haring chosen Silas, went forth, being commended by the brethren to the grace of the Lord. And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the assemblies. And he came down also to Derbe and to Lystra. And, behold, a certain disciple was there, Timothy by name, son of a believing Jewish woman, but of a Grecian father; who was well reported of by the brethren in Lystra and Iconium; this one Paul wished to go forth with him; and, taking him, he circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those places; for they all knew that his father was a Greek. And, as they were journeying through the cities, they were delivering to them the decrees to keep, that had been ordained by the apostles and elders who were in Jerusalem. So the assemblies were being strengthened in the faith, and were increasing in number daily. And they passed through the Phrygian and Galatian country, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia; and, having come over against Mysia, they were trying to go on into Bithynia, and the Spirit of Jesus did not permit them; and, passing by Mysia, they came down to Troas. And a vision appeared to Paul by night: a certain man of Macedonia was standing, and beseeching him, saying, "Crossing over into Macedonia, help us!" And, when he saw the vision, straightway we sought to go forth into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to proclaim the Good News to them. Having set sail, therefore, from Troas, we ran in a straight course to Samothrace, and on the following day to Neapolis; and thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of the district of Macedonia, a colony. And we were tarrying in this city certain days. And, on the sabbath day, we went forth without the gate by a river, where we were supposing there was a place of prayer; and, sitting down, we were speaking to the women who had assembled together. And a certain woman, Lydia by name, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, who worshipped God, was listening, whose heart the Lord opened to attend to the things spoken by Paul. And, when she was immersed, and her household, she besought us, saying, "If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, having entered into my house, abide there." And she constrained us. And it came to pass, as we were on our way to the place of prayer, that a certain damsel, having a spirit of divination, met us; who, indeed, was bringing to her masters much gain by sooth-saying. The same, following after Paul and us, kept crying, saying, "These men are servants of the Most High God; who, indeed, declare to you a way of salvation." And this she was doing for many days. But Paul, having been troubled, and turning, said to the spirit, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out from her." And it came out that very hour! But her masters, seeing that the hope of their gain was gone, laying hold on Paul and Silas, dragged them into the market-place before the rulers; and, leading them forward to the magistrates, they said, "These men, being Jews, are greatly disturbing our city; and are declaring customs, which it is not lawful for us to receive, or to observe, being Romans. And the multitude rose up together against them; and the magistrates, having torn off their garments, were giving orders to beat them with rods; and, having laid upon them many stripes, they thrust them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely; who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks. And about midnight Paul and Silas, while engaged in prayer, were singing praise to God; and the prisoners were listening to them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened, and the bonds of all were loosed. And the jailer, being aroused from sleep, and seeing the doors of the prison open, drawing a sword, was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had fled. But Paul cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Do yourself no harm, for we are all here." And, calling for a light, he sprang in, and, being in fear, he fell down before Paul and Silas; and, having brought them out, he said, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" And they said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved, and your house." And they spake to him the word of the Lord with all that were in his house. And, having taken them with him, at that hour of the night he washed their stripes; and was immersed, himself and all his, immediately; and, bringing them up into his house, he placed a table near them; and he rejoiced greatly with all his house, having believed in God. And, when it was day, the magistrates sent forth the serjeants, saying, "Release these men." And the jailer reported these words to Paul, "The magistrates have sent that ye be released; now, therefore, going forth, go on your way in peace." But Paul said to them "Having beaten us in public, uncondemned, being Romans, they cast us into prison; and now are they casting us out secretly? Nay, verily; but, coming themselves, let them lead us out." And the serjeants reported these words to the magistrates; and they were afraid, when they heard that they were Romans; and, coming, they besought them; and, leading them forth, they kept asking them to go away from the city. And, coming out from the prison, they entered into the house of Lidia; and, seeing the brethren, they comforted them, and departed. And, having passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews; and, according to Paul's custom, he went in to them; and for three sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures, opening and setting forth that it was necessary that the Christ should suffer, and rise again from the dead; and that "This Jesus Whom I am proclaiming to you, is the Christ." And some of them were persuaded, and cast in their lot with Paul and Silas; also, of the devout Greeks, a great number; and, of the principal women, not a few. But the Jews, moved with jealousy, and taking to themselves certain evil men of the rabble, and gathering a multitude, were setting the city in an uproar; and, assaulting the house of Jason, they were seeking them to lead them, forth to the populace. But, not finding them, they dragged Jason and certain brethren before the rulers of the city, shouting, "These who turned the inhabited earth upside down are present here also; whom Jason has received; and these all are acting contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that "There is Another King??esus!" And they troubled the multitude and the city-rulers, hearing these things; and, having taken security from Jason and the rest, they released them. But the brethren straightway sent away both Paul and Silas by night to Beraea; who, indeed, having arrived, went into the synagogue of the Jews. And these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, examining the Scriptures daily, whether these things were so. Many, of them, therefore, believed; also, of the reputable Grecian women, and of men, not a few. But, when the Jews from Thessalonica knew that also in Beraea the word of God was proclaimed by Paul, they came there also, stirring up and troubling the multitudes, And then straightway the brethren sent away Paul to journey as far as to the sea; but Silas and Timothy remained there still. But those conducting Paul brought him as far as Athens; and, having received a command to Silas and Timothy, that they should come to him as soon as possible, they departed. And, while Paul was waiting for them in Athens, his spirit was being provoked within him, observing that the city was full of idols. So, he was reasoning in the synagogue with the Jews and the devout persons, and in the market-place every day with those who met him. And some also of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers were encountering him. And some said, "What would this babbler wish to say?" And others said, He seems to be a proclaimer of foreign gods;" because he proclaimed the good tidings of Jesus and the resurrection. And, laying hold of him, they led him upon Mars Hill, saying, "May we know what this new teaching is, that is being spoken by you! for you bring to our ears certain strange things; we wish, therefore, to know what these things mean." Now all Athenians and the sojourning foreigners were wont to spend their leisure in nothing else, than either to tell or to hear something new. And Paul, having taken his stand in the midst of Mars Hill, said, "Men of Athens, in all respects I observe that ye are more than usually regardful of the deities; for, passing through, and considering your objects of worship, I found also an altar on which had been inscribed, TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. What, therefore, in ignorance ye worship, this I declare to you. The God Who made the world and all things therein, The Same being Lord of Heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands, nor is ministered to by human hands, as if needing anything; Himself giving to all life, and breath, and all things; and He made of one every nation of men to dwell upon all the face of the earth, having marked out their appointed seasons, and the bounds of their habitation; that they should seek God, if, perhaps, they might feel after Him, and find Him, although, in truth, He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live, and move, and are; as also some of your own poets have said, 'For we also are His offspring.' "Being, therefore, God's offspring, we ought not to suppose that the God-head is like gold, or silver, or stone, graven by man's art and device! God, therefore, having overlooked the time of ignorance, now commands all men everywhere to repent; inasmuch as He appointed a day in which He intendeth to judge the inhabited earth in righteousness, by a Man Whom He appointed, having given assurance to all by raising Him from the dead." And, hearing of the resurrection of the dead, some, indeed, were mocking; but others said, "We will hear you concerning this yet again." Thus Paul went forth out of their midst. But certain men, joining themselves to him, believed; among whom also were Dionysius??he Areopagite??nd a woman, Damaris by name, and others with them. After these things, departing from Athens, he came to Corinth. And, finding a certain Jew, Aquila by name, a native of Pontus, having recently come from Italy, and Priscilla his wife (because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to depart out of Rome), he came to them; and, because he was of the same trade, he abode with them, and they labored; for by occupation they were tent-makers. And he was reasoning in the synagogue every sabbath, and was persuading Jews and Greeks. And, when both Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul was being constrained by the word, fully testifying to the Jews that Jesus is the Christ. But, when they resisted, and blasphemed, he, shaking out his garments, said to them, "Your blood be upon your own head! I am pure! Henceforth I will go to the gentiles." And, departing thence, he entered into the house of a certain man, Titus Justus by name, a worshipper of God, whose house was adjoining the synagogue. And Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house: and many of the Corinthians, having heard, were believing, and being immersed. And the Lord said to Paul, through a vision by night, "Fear not, but speak, and be not silent; because I am with you, and no one shall set on you to harm you; because I have much people in this city. And he dwelt there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them. But, when Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews with one accord rose up against Paul, and brought him to the judgment-seat, saying, "This man is persuading men to worship God contrary to the law." And, when Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, "If, indeed, it were some wrong or wicked villainy, O Jews, with reason had I borne with you; but, if they are questions about a word, and names, and your own law, ye yourselves shall see to it. I am not disposed to be a judge of such matters." And he drove them from the judgment-seat. But they all, having laid hold upon Sosthenes, the ruler of the synagogue, were beating him before the judgment-seat. And Gallio was caring for none of these things. And Paul, abiding after this yet many days with the brethren, having taken leave of them, was sailing away to Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shaven his head in Cenchrea; for he had a vow. And they came down to Ephesus, and he left them there; but he himself, entering into the synagogue, reasoned with the Jews. And, though they asked him to remain a longer time with them, he consented not; but, taking leave of them, and saying, "I will return to you again, God willing," he sailed from Ephesus; and, landing at Cesarea, going up and saluting the assembly, he went down to Antioch.


But, when the Jews from Thessalonica knew that also in Beraea the word of God was proclaimed by Paul, they came there also, stirring up and troubling the multitudes, And then straightway the brethren sent away Paul to journey as far as to the sea; but Silas and Timothy remained there still.
