But some also of the wandering Jews, exorcists, attempted to name over those having evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, "I adjure you by the Jesus Whom Paul preaches." Now there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jewish high priest, who did this. And the evil spirit, answering, said to them, "Jesus I know, and Paul I understand; but who are ye?" read more.
And the man in whom was the evil spirit, leaping upon them, and, overcoming them both, prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

But Peter said, "Silver and gold have I none; but what I have, this I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ, the Nazarene, walk."

be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Nazarene, Whom ye crucified, Whom God raised from the dead, in Him does this man stand here before you well!

And, having spent some time there, he departed, going through the region of Galatia and Phrygia, in order, establishing all the disciples. Now a certain Jew, Apollos by name, an Alexandrian by birth, a learned man, came down to Ephesus; and he was mighty in the Scriptures. The same had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and, being fervent in spirit, he was speaking and teaching accurately the things concerning Jesus, knowing only the immersion of John. read more.
The same also began to speak boldly in the synagogue. But Priscilla and Aquila, having heard him, took him to themselves, and expounded to him the way of God more accurately. And, when he was disposed to passover into Achaia, the brethren, encouraging him, wrote to the disciples to receive him; who, having come, helped much those who had believed through grace; for powerfully was he refuting the Jews publicly, showing by the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ. And it came to pass, while Apollos was in Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper districts, came to Ephesus, and found certain disciples; and he said to them, "Did ye receive the Holy Spirit, after having believed?" And they said to him, "Nay, we did not even hear whether there is a Holy Spirit." And he said, "Into what, then, were ye immersed?" And they said, "Into John's immersion." And Paul said, "John immersed with an immersion of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him coming after him; that is, on Jesus." And, having heard this, they were immersed into the name of the Lord Jesus; and, Paul having laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they were speaking with tongues, and prophesying. And all the men were about twelve. And, entering into the synagogue, he was speaking boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading as to the things concerning the Kingdom of God. But, when some were hardening themselves and were disbelieving, speaking evil of the Way before the multitude, he, withdrawing from them, separated the disciples; reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus. And this continued for two years; so that all those dwelling in Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks. And God kept performing special miracles through the hands of Paul; So that there were even carried from his body to the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out. But some also of the wandering Jews, exorcists, attempted to name over those having evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, "I adjure you by the Jesus Whom Paul preaches." Now there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jewish high priest, who did this. And the evil spirit, answering, said to them, "Jesus I know, and Paul I understand; but who are ye?" And the man in whom was the evil spirit, leaping upon them, and, overcoming them both, prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. And this became known to all, both Jews and Greeks, who were dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell upon them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was being magnified. Many also of those who had believed were coming, confessing, and declaring their practices. A considerable number, moreover, of those who had practiced the curious arts, having brought together the books, were burning them in the presence of all; and they counted the prices of them, and found them fifty thousand pieces of silver. So mightily grew the word of God, and prevailed. Now, when these things were ended, Paul purposed in his spirit, after passing through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem; saying, "After I have been there, I must see Rome also." And, having sent into Macedonia two of those ministering to him, Timothy and Erastus, he himself remained for a time in Asia. And about that time there arose no small stir concerning the Way. For a certain one, Demetrius by name, a silver-smith, making silver shrines of Diana, was bringing to the artisans no small business; gathering whom together, and the workmen of like occupation, be said, "Men, ye know that out of this business we have our wealth. And ye perceive and hear that, not only at Ephesus, but almost in all Asia, this Paul, having persuaded, turned away a great multitude, saying, that they are not gods that are made with hands. And not only is there danger to us that this branch of our business will come into disrepute, but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana be reckoned of no account, and also her magnificence will be destroyed, whom all Asia and the inhabited earth worship." And, hearing this, and becoming full of wrath, they were crying aloud, saying, "Great is Diana of the Ephesians!" And the city was filled with the confusion; and they rushed with one accord into the theater, having seized Gaius and Aristarchus??acedonians??ellow-travelers of Paul. And, Paul purposing to enter in unto the people, the disciples were not permitting him. And some also of the chief men of Asia, being his friends, sending to him, were beseeching him not to venture himself into the theater. Some, therefore, were crying one thing, and some another; for the assembly had become confused, and the greater part knew not for what cause they had come together. And they brought Alexander out of the crowd, the Jews thrusting him forward. And Alexander, waving his hand, wished to make defense to the people. But, when they perceived that he was a Jew, one voice arose from all, crying aloud for about two hours, "Great is Diana of the Ephesians!" But the town-clerk, having quieted the multitude, says, "Men of Ephesus, who, indeed, of men is there that does not know that the city of the Ephesians is temple-keeper of the great Diana, and of the image that fell down from Jupiter? These things, therefore, being incontrovertible, it is needful that ye be quiet, and do nothing rash. For ye brought hither these men, who are neither temple-robbers nor blasphemers of our goddess. If, indeed, therefore, Demetrius and the artisans with him have a matter against any one, court-days are held, and there are proconsuls; let them accuse one another. But, if ye seek anything about other matters, it shall be determined in the lawful assembly. For, indeed, we are in danger of being accused of riot respecting this day, there existing no cause for it, and regarding which we will be unable to give an account of this concourse." And, having thus spoken, he dismissed the assembly. And, after the tumult ceased, Paul, having sent for the disciples, and exhorted them, taking leave of them, departed to go into Macedonia. And, having gone through those parts and exhorted them with many words, he came into Greece; and, having spent three months there, a plot being laid for him by the Jews, as he was about to sail into Syria, he determined to return through Macedonia. 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. And these, having gone before, were waiting for us at Troas; and we sailed away from Philippi, after the days of unleavened bread, and came to them to Troas in five days; where we tarried seven days. And on the first day of the sabbaths, we having come together to break bread, Paul was discoursing to them (being about to depart on the morrow), and continued the discourse until midnight. And there were many lamps in the upper room, where we were assembled. And a certain young man, Eutychus by name, seated in a window, being borne down with deep sleep, as Paul was long discoursing, overpowered by the sleep, fell from the third story, and was taken up dead. And Paul, going down, fell upon him; and, embracing him, said, "Make no tumult! for his soul is in him." And, having gone up, and broken bread, and eaten, and for a long time having conversed with them, even till break of day, so he departed. And they brought the boy alive, and were comforted in no ordinary measure. And we, going before to the ship, set sail for Assos, there intending to take up Paul; for so he had arranged, intending himself to go on foot. And, when he met us at Assos, taking him up, we came to Mytilene. And sailing thence, we came the following day over against Chios; and the next day we touched at Samos; and, on the following day, we came to Miletus. For Paul had determined to sail past Ephesus, that he might not have to spend time in Asia; for he was hastening, if it were possible for him, to be in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. And, having sent from Miletus to Ephesus, he called for the elders of the assembly. And, when they came to him, he said to them, "Ye yourselves know from the first day on which I came into Asia, after what manner I was with you all the time; serving the Lord with all humility, and with tears, and with trials which befell me in the plottings of the Jews; how I shrank not from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and from teaching you publicly, and from house to house, fully testifying, both to Jews and Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus. And, now, behold, I, bound by the Spirit, am going to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there; except that the Holy Spirit testifieth to me in every city, saying that bonds and tribulations await me. But I make not my soul of any value as dear to myself, so that I may accomplish my course, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to fully testify the Gospel of the grace of God. And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I went about preaching the Kingdom, will see my face no more. Wherefore, I testify to you this day, that I am clean from the blood of all men; for I shrank not from declaring to you the whole counsel of God. Take heed to yourselves, and to all the flock in which the Holy Spirit appointed you overseers, to shepherd the assembly of God, which He purchased with His own blood. I know that, after my departure, grievous wolves will enter in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among yourselves will men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them. Wherefore, watch, remembering that for three years, night and day, I ceased not to admonish every one with tears. "And now I commend you to God, and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you the inheritance among all the sanctified. I coveted no one's silver, or gold, or apparel. Ye yourselves know that these hands ministered to my necessities, and to those who were with me. In all things I showed you that, thus laboring, ye ought to help the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." And, having said these things, bowing his knees, he prayed with them all. And great weeping arose from all; and, falling upon Paul's neck, they kept kissing him; being distressed especially on account of the word which he had spoken, that they were to see his face no more. And they were escorting him to the ship. And, when it came to pass that we, having been torn away from them, had set sail, we came with a straight course to Cos, and the next day to Rhodes, and thence to Patara; and, having found a ship crossing over to Phoenicia, going aboard, we set sail. And, having come in sight of Cyprus, leaving it on the left hand, we sailed to Syria, and landed at Tyre; for there the ship was to unload her cargo. And, having found the disciples, we tarried there seven days; who, indeed, said to Paul through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem. And, when it came to pass that we completed the days, going forth, we were resuming our journey; they all, with wives and children, accompanying us out of the city; and, kneeling down on the beach, having prayed, we bade one another farewell; and we embarked upon the ship, but they returned to their homes. And, having finished the voyage from Tyre, we arrived at Ptolemais; and, having saluted the brethren, we abode with them one day. And, on the morrow, going forth, we came to Caesarea; and, entering into the house of Philip the evangelist, who was of the seven, we abode with him. And this man had four daughters, virgins, who prophesied. And, as we tarried there several days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, Agabus by name. And, coming to us, and taking Paul's girdle, binding his own feet and hands, he said, "Thus saith the Holy Spirit, so shall the Jews in Jerusalem bind the man who owns this girdle, and shall deliver him up into the hands of the gentiles. And, when we heard these things, both we and those of that place were beseeching him not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, "What are ye doing, weeping and crushing my heart? For I am ready, not only to be bound, but to die at Jerusalem, for the name of the Lord Jesus." And, when he would not be persuaded, we were silent, saying, "The will of the Lord be done." And, after these days, having gotten ready, we went up to Jerusalem.

But I will remain at Ephesus until the Pentecost; for a door, great and effectual, has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
