And it was in Apollos' being in Corinth, Paul having passed through the higher parts, caine to Ephesus: and having found certain disciples,


And a certain Jew, Apollos by name, an Alexandrian by birth, an eloquent man, arrived at Ephesus, being able in the writings. He was instructed in the way of the Lord; and boiling up in the spirit, he spake and taught attentively the things of the Lord, knowing only the immersion of John. And he began to speak freely in the synagogue: and . Priscilla and Aquila having heard him, took him, and set forth to him the way of God more accurately. read more.
And he wishing to pass through to Achaia, the brethren having encouraged, wrote to the disciples to receive him: who having arrived, profited much them having believed through grace: For he mightily refuted the Jews publicly, shewing by the writings Jesus to be Christ.

For when a certain one should say, I truly am of Paul; and another, I of Apollos; are ye not carnal? Who then is Paul, and who Apollos, but servants by whom ye believed, and to each as the Lord gave? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God increased. read more.
So that neither he planting is anything, neither he watering; but God increasing.

And Paul yet having remained sufficient days, having taken leave of the brethren, sailed out to Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn the head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow. And Paul arrived at Ephesus, and left those of his: and he having come into the synagogue, discussed with the Jews. And they asking to remain with them for more time, he acquiesced not; read more.
But he took leave of them, saying, I must at any rate do the coming festival in Jerusalem: and I will again return to you, God willing. And he was conveyed from Ephesus. And having come down to Cesarea having gone up and greeted the church, he went down to Antioch. And having made a certain time, he came out, passing in order the Galatian country and Phrygia, supporting all the disciples.

And it was in Apollos' being in Corinth, Paul having passed through the higher parts, caine to Ephesus: and having found certain disciples, He said to them, Having believed, have ye received the Holy Spirit? And they said to him, But neither heard we if there be a Holy Spirit. And he said to them, Into what then were ye immersed? And they. said, Into John's immersion. And Paul said, John truly immersed the immersion of repentance, saying to the people, that they should believe on him coming after him, that is, in Christ Jesus. And they having heard, were immersed in the name of the Lord Jesus. And Paul having laid hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came upon them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. And all the men were about twelve. And having come into the synagogue, he spake freely, discoursing for three months, and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God. And when certain were hardened, and believed not, speaking evil of the way before the multitude, having departed from them, he separated the disciples, discoursing in the day in the school of a certain Tyrannus. And this was for two years: so that all dwelling in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks. And God did special powers by Paul's hands: So that also upon the sick were brought from his body napkins or aprons, and diseases were removed from them, and evil spirits came out of them. And certain of the wandering Jews, exorcists, undertook to call over them having evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul proclaims. And there were certain sons of Sceva, a Jew, chief priest, seven doing this. And the evil spirit having answered, said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man leaping upon them in whom the evil spirit was, and having overpowered them, he was strong against them, so that naked and wounded they fled out of the house. And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell upon them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. And many of them having believed came, acknowledging and proclaiming their deeds. And sufficient of them having done unnecessary things, having brought books together, burned before all: and computed their prices, and found fifty thousand of silver. Thus with might the word of the Lord increased, and was strong. And when these were completed, Paul proposed in spirit, having passed through Macedonia and Achaia to go to Jerusalem, saying, That after have been there, I must also see Rome. And having sent into Macedonia two of them serving him, Timothy, and Erastus, he stopped a season in Asia. And in that time was there no little trouble about the way. For a certain Demetrius by name, a silversmith, making the silver temples of Diana, furnished no little work to artificers; Whom having collected together and the workmen of such things, he said, Men, ye know that out of this work is our good food. And ye see and hear that not only Ephesus, but almost all Asia, this Paul having persuaded, changed a sufficient crowd, saying, that they are not gods made by hands: And not only this part is in danger to us to come to reproach; but also the temple of the great goddess Diana to be reckoned for nothing, and her greatness also about to be destroyed, whom the whole of Asia and the habitable globe worship. And having heard, and been filled with wrath, they cried, saying, Great the Diana of the Ephesians. And the whole city was filled With confusion, and they rushed unanimously into the theatre, having taken away together Gains and Aristarchus, Macedonians, Paul's companions of the journey. And Paul wishing to come in to the people, the disciples suffered him not. And certain also of the chief of Asia, being friends to him, having sent to him, besought not to give himself into the theatre. Others truly cried some other things: for the church was confused; and the most knew not for what they had come together. And they forced Alexander out of the crowd, the Jews having put him forward. And Alexander having shaken the hand, wished to justify himself to the people. And having known that he is a Jew, there was one voice from all crying for about two hours, Great the Diana of the Ephesians. And the scribe having calmed the crowd, says, Men, Ephesians, for who is the man that knows not the city of the Ephesians, being templekeeper of the great goddess Diana, and sent by Jove? Therefore these things not being refuted, it is necessary for you to be restrained, and to do nothing rash. For ye brought these men not sacrilegious, nor blaspheming your goddess. If truly therefore Demetrius, and the artificers with him, have a word against any, the court days are kept, and there are proconsuls; let them prosecute one another. But if ye inquire anything concerning, other things, it shall be explained in a lawful assembly. For we are also in danger to be called in question for this day, being no cause for which we shall be able to give back word of this confederation. And having said these, he loosed the assembly. And after the uproar was ceased, Paul having called the disciples, and greeted, he came out to go into Macedonia. And having passed through those parts, and having besought them by much speech, he came into Greece. And having made three months; an insidious plot having been for him by the Jews, being about to sail to Syria, there was a purpose to return through Macedonia. And there agreed with him as far as Asia Sopater a Berean; and of the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus: and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy; and Asians, Tychicus and Trophimus. These having come before awaited us in Troas. And we sailed forth after the days of unleavened from Philippi, and came to them in Troas up to five days; where we tarried seven days. And in one of the sabbaths, the disciples having been assembled together to break bread, Paul conversed with them being about to go forth the morrow; and he continued the word until midnight. And sufficient lights were in the upper room, where they were assembled. And a certain young man by name Eutychus, sitting in the window, borne down by deep sleep, Paul conversing more and more, fell down below from the third story, and was taken up dead. And Paul having gone down, fell upon him, and embracing, said, Be not disturbed, for his soul is in him. And having gone up, and broken bread, and tasted, and conversed for a sufficient time, till the light, so he went forth. And they brought the child living, and were not little comforted. And we having gone before to the ship, sailed to Assos, there being about to take up Paul: for so had he ordered, being about himself to go on foot. And when he joined us at Assos, having taken him up, we came to Mitylene. And from thence having sailed away, the following day we arrived over against Chios; and the other day we approached to Samos, and having remained in Trogyllium, the following day we came to Miletus. For Paul determined to sail to Ephesus, as it might not be to him to spend the time in Asia: for he hastened, if it were possible to him, to be in Jerusalem the day of Pentecost. And having sent from Miletus to Ephesus, he called for the elders of the church. And when they came to him, he said to them, Ye know, from the first day in which I embarked for Asia, how I was with you all the time Serving the Lord with all humility, and many tears, and temptations, having happened to me by the insidious plots of the Jews: how I concealed nothing of things profitable, not to announce to you, and teach you publicly, and in the houses, Testifying to both Jews, and Greeks, repentance towards God, and the faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ. And now, behold, I, bound in the spirit, am going to Jerusalem, not knowing the things going to happen to me in it; But that the Holy Spirit testifies in the city, saying that bonds and pressures await me. But the word of none do I make mine own, neither have I my soul highly prized to myself, in order to finish my course with joy, and the service which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the good news of the grace of God. And now, behold, I know that all ye shall see my face no more, among whom I passed through, proclaiming the kingdom of God. Wherefore I testify to you in this day, that I pure from the blood of all. For I concealed not to announce to you all the counsel of God. Attend therefore to yourselves, and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit set you inspectors, to feed the church of God, which he acquired by his own blood. For I know this, that there shall come in after my departure grievous wolves to you, not sparing the flock. And of yourselves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to tear away disciples after them. Wherefore watch ye, remembering that the space of three years night and day I ceased not reminding each one with tears. And now I commit you, brethren, to God, and to the word of his grace, being able to build up, and give you inheritance among all the consecrated. Silver or gold, or clothing, of none have I eagerly desired. And ye yourselves know, that to my necessities, and to those being with me, these hands served. I shewed you all things, that so being wearied ye must support the weak, and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that himself said, It is happy to give rather than receive. And having said these, having placed his knees, he prayed with them all. And much weeping was from all; and having fallen upon Paul's neck, they kissed him, Grieving chiefly for the word which he spake, that they are about to see his face no more. And they sent him forward to the ship. And it was, as we were conducted forth, torn asunder from them, having run straight forward, we came to Coos, and in continuation to Rhodes, and thence to Patara: And having found a ship passing over to Phenicia, having embarked, we were conducted forth. And having been shown Cyprus, and left it at the left hand, we sailed to Syria, and were conveyed to Tyre: for thither was the ship discharging the lading. And having found disciples, we remained there seven days: who said to Paul through the Spirit, not to go up to Jerusalem. And it was when we accomplished the days, having come out we went; all sending us forward, with wives and children, even to without the city: and having placed the knees upon the seashore, we prayed. And having greeted one another, we embarked in the ship; and these returned to their own. And we having finished the voyage from Tyre, arrived at Ptolemais, and having greeted the brethren, we remained one day with them. And the morrow, they about Paul having come out, came to Cesarea: and having come to Philip's house, bearer of good news, being of the seven, we remained with him. And to him were four daughters, virgins, prophesying. And we remaining many days, a certain prophet came down from Judea, by name Agabus. And having come to us, and lifted up Paul's girdle, and bound his hands and feet, he said, Thus says the Holy Spirit, The man whose is this girdle, shall the Jews so bind in Jerusalem, and they shall deliver him into the hands of the nations. And when we heard these things, both we, and the nations, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem. And Paul answered, What do ye weeping and breaking my heart? for I not only to be bound, but to die at Jerusalem, have prepared for the name of the Lord Jesus. And he not being persuaded, we were silent, saying, The will of the Lord be done. And after these days, having packed up, we went up to Jerusalem.
