And some of them were convinced, and joined themselves to Paul and Silas, and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the women of high rank not a few.

This therefore I say, and charge you in the Lord, that ye no longer walk as the rest of the gentiles walk in the vanity of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God on account of the ignorance that is in them, on account of the hardness of their hearts; who, being past feeling, have given themselves up to wantonness, to work all uncleanness in greediness.

Therefore be not anxious, saying, What shall we eat, or what shall we drink, or wherewith shall we he clothed? For after all these things do the gentiles seek; for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.


Nay, but that what they sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons, and not to God; and I would not that ye should have communion with demons.


But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do; for they think that they shall be heard for the multitude of their words. Be not ye therefore like them; for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

who in the ages past suffered all the nations to walk in their own ways;

Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred within him, when he saw the city full of idols. Therefore he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and the devout [Greeks], and in the market daily with those that met him.

Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars hill, and said, Men of Athens, in all things I perceive that ye are very devout. For while passing along and observing your objects of worship, I found also an altar with this inscription, "To an unknown God." What therefore ye, without knowledge of it, worship, that do I make known to you. The God who made the world and all things therein, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; read more.
nor doth he receive service at the hands of men, as though he needed anything, since it is he that giveth to all life and breath and all things. And he made of one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, having fixed appointed times, and the bounds of their habitation; that they should seek God, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he is not far from every one of us.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all impiety and unrighteousness of men, who keep down the truth in unrighteousness. Because that which may be known of God is manifest within them; for God made it manifest to them. For, ever since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes, even his eternal power and divinity, being perceived from his works, are clearly seen, so that they might be without excuse. read more.
Because though they knew God, they did not glorify him as God, nor were they thankful to him; but became perverse in their reasonings, and their senseless minds were darkened; professing to be wise, they became fools, and for the glory of the incorruptible God they substituted images of corruptible man, and of birds and fourfooted beasts and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to debase their bodies with one another; because they changed the true God for false gods, and adored and worshipped created things rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women indulged in unnatural lust, and in like manner the men also, neglecting the natural use of the female, burned with lust for one another, men with men practising that which is shameful, and receiving in themselves the due recompense of their error. And as they did not choose to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them up to a reprobate mind, to do things which are shameful; being filled with all unrighteousness, malice, covetousness, wickedness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity; backbiters, slanderers, hated of God, insolent, proud, boasters, inventors of mischief, disobedient to parents, senseless, faithless, without natural affection, without pity; who, although knowing the ordinance of God, that they who practise such things deserve death, not only do them themselves, but approve of those who do them.

Wherefore thou art without excuse, O man that judgest, whoever thou art. For wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practise such things. And dost thou suppose, O man, who art judging those who do such things, and art thyself doing the same, that thou wilt escape the judgment of God? read more.
Or dost thou despise the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God is leading thee to repentance? But according to thy hardness and impenitent heart, thou art treasuring up for thyself wrath against the day of wrath and of the manifestation of the righteous judgment of God, who will render to every one according to his works; everlasting life to those who by patient continuance in welldoing seek for glory, and honor, and incorruption; but to those who are contentious, and disobedient to the truth; but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and indignation. Tribulation and distress will be upon every soul of man whose works are evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Greek; but glory, honor, and peace, to every one whoso works are good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without a law, will also perish without a law; and as many as have sinned under a law, will be judged by a law, for it is not the hearers of a law who are righteous before God, but the doers of a law will be accounted righteous; for when the gentiles, who have no law, do by nature what is required by the Law, these, having no law, are a law to themselves; since they show that what the Law requireth is written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness, and their thoughts in turn accusing or defending them;

Ye know, that when ye were gentiles, ye were carried away to dumb idols, as ye happened to be led;

We are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the gentiles;



For sufficient is the time past to have wrought the will of the gentiles, when ye walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revelings, carousings, and abominable idolatries; at which they are astonished that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you;

Because though they knew God, they did not glorify him as God, nor were they thankful to him; but became perverse in their reasonings, and their senseless minds were darkened; professing to be wise, they became fools,


but to those who are contentious, and disobedient to the truth; but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and indignation.


hindering us from speaking to the gentiles that they may be saved,to fill up their sins always! But the wrath is come upon them to the end.

And he made of one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, having fixed appointed times, and the bounds of their habitation; that they should seek God, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he is not far from every one of us. For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as also some of your own poets have said: "For we are also his offspring."

But they did not all hearken to the glad tidings. For Isaiah saith, "Lord, who hath believed what he hath heard from us?" Faith then cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, Did they not hear? Yes truly, "Their voice went forth into all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world."


For I am not ashamed of the gospel; for to every believer, to the Jew first and also to the Greek, it is the power of God unto salvation. For therein is revealed the righteousness which is of God from faith to faith; as it is written, "But the righteous shall live by faith." For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all impiety and unrighteousness of men, who keep down the truth in unrighteousness. read more.

Symeon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of our God, and the Saviour Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord. Seeing that his Divine power hath given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness; read more.
through which he hath given us exceedingly great and precious promises, that by these ye may become partakers of the Divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world through lust; even for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge, and to knowledge selfcontrol, and to selfcontrol endurance, and to endurance godliness, and to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are in you and abound, they make you neither inactive nor unfruitful in gaining the full knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.





But we know that the Law is good, if a man use it lawfully, knowing this, that the Law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and unruly, for the ungodly and sinful, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,


but to those who are contentious, and disobedient to the truth; but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and indignation.


Know ye not, that wrongdoers shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you; but ye were washed, but ye were made holy, but ye were accepted as righteous in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.


and then will the lawless one be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will consume with the breath of his mouth, and destroy with the manifestation of his coming; [he,] whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power, and signs, and wonders of falsehood, and in all deceit of unrighteousness for those who are perishing; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. read more.
And for this cause God sendeth them a working of delusion, that they may believe the falsehood; that they may all be judged, who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

but these, as brute beasts, by nature born to be taken and destroyed, railing at things which they understand not, shall even perish in their own corruption, receiving the wages of unrighteousness. Counting it pleasure to riot in the daytime, spots and blemishes, reveling in their deceits while they feast with you, having eyes full of an adulteress, and that cannot cease from sin, alluring unstable souls, having a heart exercised in covetousness, children of a curse, read more.
they have forsaken the right way, and have gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness,

And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were a flame of fire, and on his head were many diadems; and he had names written, and a name written which no one knoweth but he himself; and he was clothed with a garment dipped in blood; and his name is called, The Word of God. read more.
And the armies which are in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and pure. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he may smite the nations; and he will rule them with a rod of iron; and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God Almighty.
