44-1:1††††† The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,
44-1:2††††† Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
44-1:4††††† And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
44-1:8††††† But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
44-1:16†††† Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.
44-1:19†††† And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.
44-1:21†††† Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
44-1:22†††† Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
44-1:25†††† That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
44-2:6††††† Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
44-2:14†††† But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
44-2:16†††† But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
44-2:20†††† The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
44-2:21†††† And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
44-2:24†††† Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
44-2:25†††† For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
44-2:29†††† Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
44-2:30†††† Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
44-2:31†††† He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
44-2:36†††† Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
44-2:39†††† For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
44-2:41†††† Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
44-2:44†††† And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
44-3:2††††† And a certain man lame from his motherís womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;
44-3:10†††† And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.
44-3:11†††† And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomonís, greatly wondering.
44-3:17†††† And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.
44-3:18†††† But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
44-3:19†††† Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
44-3:23†††† And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
44-3:24†††† Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.
44-4:2††††† Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
44-4:5††††† And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,
44-4:10†††† Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
44-4:13†††† Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
44-4:16†††† Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it.
44-4:17†††† But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name.
44-4:21†††† So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.
44-4:23†††† And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.
44-4:24†††† And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:
44-4:29†††† And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
44-4:30†††† By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.
44-4:32†††† And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.
44-4:34†††† Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,
44-5:5††††† And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.
44-5:9††††† Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.
44-5:15†††† Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
44-5:17†††† Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation,
44-5:21†††† And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.
44-5:28†††† Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this manís blood upon us.
44-5:32†††† And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
44-5:33†††† When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them.
44-5:40†††† And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.
44-5:41†††† And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.
44-6:2††††† Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.
44-6:14†††† For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.
44-6:15†††† And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.
44-7:5††††† And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.
44-7:6††††† And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.
44-7:7††††† And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place.
44-7:12†††† But when Jacob heard that there was corn in Egypt, he sent out our fathers first.
44-7:16†††† And were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor the father of Sychem.
44-7:19†††† The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live.
44-7:24†††† And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian:
44-7:25†††† For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not.
44-7:27†††† But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us?
44-7:36†††† He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.
44-7:37†††† This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.
44-7:38†††† This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:
44-7:44†††† Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as he had appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen.
44-7:45†††† Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drave out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David;
44-8:1††††† And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.
44-8:4††††† Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.
44-8:7††††† For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.
44-8:8††††† And there was great joy in that city.
44-8:9††††† But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:
44-8:11†††† And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.
44-8:14†††† Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:
44-8:15†††† Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:
44-8:18†††† And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostlesí hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,
44-8:19†††† Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
44-8:20†††† But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
44-8:23†††† For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
44-8:24†††† Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.
44-8:26†††† And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.
44-8:31†††† And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.
44-8:37†††† And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
44-8:39†††† And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
44-9:2††††† And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.
44-9:12†††† And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
44-9:14†††† And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.
44-9:17†††† And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
44-9:20†††† And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
44-9:21†††† But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?
44-9:22†††† But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.
44-9:23†††† And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him:
44-9:26†††† And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.
44-9:27†††† But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus.
44-9:35†††† And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord.
44-9:37†††† And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they had washed, they laid her in an upper chamber.
44-9:38†††† And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.
44-9:43†††† And it came to pass, that he tarried many days in Joppa with one Simon a tanner.
44-10:2†††† A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.
44-10:7†††† And when the angel which spake unto Cornelius was departed, he called two of his household servants, and a devout soldier of them that waited on him continually;
44-10:14††† But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
44-10:15††† And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
44-10:22††† And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee.
44-10:27††† And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together.
44-10:28††† And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
44-10:33††† Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.
44-10:34††† Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
44-10:35††† But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
44-10:37††† That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
44-10:38††† How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
44-10:42††† And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
44-10:43††† To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
44-10:45††† And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
44-10:47††† Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?
44-11:1†††† And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God.
44-11:2†††† And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him,
44-11:9†††† But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
44-11:16††† Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.
44-11:17††† Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?
44-11:19††† Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only.
44-11:22††† Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch.
44-11:23††† Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.
44-11:26††† And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
44-11:28††† And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.
44-12:1†††† Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
44-12:9†††† And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
44-12:10††† When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.
44-12:11††† And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.
44-12:15††† And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.
44-12:19††† And when Herod had sought for him, and found him not, he examined the keepers, and commanded that they should be put to death. And he went down from Judaea to Caesarea, and there abode.
44-13:1†††† Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
44-13:16††† Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with his hand said, Men of Israel, and ye that fear God, give audience.
44-13:20††† And after that he gave unto them judges about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet.
44-13:25††† And as John fulfilled his course, he said, Whom think ye that I am? I am not he. But, behold, there cometh one after me, whose shoes of his feet I am not worthy to loose.
44-13:27††† For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.
44-13:28††† And though they found no cause of death in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain.
44-13:29††† And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulchre.
44-13:32††† And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers,
44-13:33††† God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
44-13:34††† And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David.
44-13:38††† Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
44-13:39††† And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
44-13:40††† Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;
44-13:42††† And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.
44-13:46††† Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
44-13:47††† For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
44-14:1†††† And it came to pass in Iconium, that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake, that a great multitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed.
44-14:6†††† They were ware of it, and fled unto Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and unto the region that lieth round about:
44-14:9†††† The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,
44-14:15††† And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:
44-14:17††† Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.
44-14:18††† And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.
44-14:21††† And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,
44-14:22††† Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
44-14:27††† And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.
44-15:2†††† When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain other of them, should go up to Jerusalem unto the apostles and elders about this question.
44-15:4†††† And when they were come to Jerusalem, they were received of the church, and of the apostles and elders, and they declared all things that God had done with them.
44-15:5†††† But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.
44-15:7†††† And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.
44-15:11††† But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.
44-15:17††† That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.
44-15:19††† Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God:
44-15:20††† But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.
44-15:21††† For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
44-15:24††† Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment:
44-15:26††† Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
44-15:29††† That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
44-15:39††† And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus;
44-16:2†††† Which was well reported of by the brethren that were at Lystra and Iconium.
44-16:3†††† Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his father was a Greek.
44-16:4†††† And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep, that were ordained of the apostles and elders which were at Jerusalem.
44-16:10††† And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.
44-16:12††† And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days.
44-16:14††† And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.
44-16:19††† And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers,
44-16:26††† And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every oneís bands were loosed.
44-16:27††† And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.
44-16:32††† And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
44-16:38††† And the serjeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared, when they heard that they were Romans.
44-17:3†††† Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.
44-17:6†††† And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
44-17:7†††† Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.
44-17:11††† These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
44-17:13††† But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people.
44-17:15††† And they that conducted Paul brought him unto Athens: and receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timotheus for to come to him with all speed, they departed.
44-17:17††† Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.
44-17:22††† Then Paul stood in the midst of Marsí hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
44-17:24††† God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
44-17:27††† That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
44-17:29††† Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and manís device.
44-17:31††† Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
44-18:2†††† And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.
44-18:5†††† And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.
44-18:7†††† And he departed thence, and entered into a certain manís house, named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.
44-18:14††† And when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O ye Jews, reason would that I should bear with you:
44-18:21††† But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.
44-18:28††† For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
44-19:1†††† And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
44-19:4†††† Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
44-19:9†††† But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus.
44-19:10††† And this continued by the space of two years; so that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.
44-19:12††† So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.
44-19:16††† And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
44-19:18††† And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds.
44-19:22††† So he sent into Macedonia two of them that ministered unto him, Timotheus and Erastus; but he himself stayed in Asia for a season.
44-19:23††† And the same time there arose no small stir about that way.
44-19:25††† Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this craft we have our wealth.
44-19:26††† Moreover ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands:
44-19:27††† So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth.
44-19:31††† And certain of the chief of Asia, which were his friends, sent unto him, desiring him that he would not adventure himself into the theatre.
44-19:34††† But when they knew that he was a Jew, all with one voice about the space of two hours cried out, Great is Diana of the Ephesians.
44-19:35††† And when the townclerk had appeased the people, he said, Ye men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Jupiter?
44-19:36††† Seeing then that these things cannot be spoken against, ye ought to be quiet, and to do nothing rashly.
44-20:18††† And when they were come to him, he said unto them, Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at all seasons,
44-20:20††† And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house,
44-20:22††† And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there:
44-20:23††† Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.
44-20:24††† But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
44-20:25††† And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.
44-20:26††† Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.
44-20:29††† For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
44-20:31††† Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
44-20:34††† Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.
44-20:35††† I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
44-20:38††† Sorrowing most of all for the words which he spake, that they should see his face no more. And they accompanied him unto the ship.
44-21:1†††† And it came to pass, that after we were gotten from them, and had launched, we came with a straight course unto Coos, and the day following unto Rhodes, and from thence unto Patara:
44-21:4†††† And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days: who said to Paul through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem.
44-21:8†††† And the next day we that were of Paulís company departed, and came unto Caesarea: and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist, which was one of the seven; and abode with him.
44-21:11††† And when he was come unto us, he took Paulís girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.
44-21:12††† And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem.
44-21:21††† And they are informed of thee, that thou teachest all the Jews which are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying that they ought not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs.
44-21:22††† What is it therefore? the multitude must needs come together: for they will hear that thou art come.
44-21:23††† Do therefore this that we say to thee: We have four men which have a vow on them;
44-21:24††† Them take, and purify thyself with them, and be at charges with them, that they may shave their heads: and all may know that those things, whereof they were informed concerning thee, are nothing; but that thou thyself also walkest orderly, and keepest the law.
44-21:25††† As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.
44-21:26††† Then Paul took the men, and the next day purifying himself with them entered into the temple, to signify the accomplishment of the days of purification, until that an offering should be offered for every one of them.
44-21:28††† Crying out, Men of Israel, help: This is the man, that teacheth all men every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further brought Greeks also into the temple, and hath polluted this holy place.
44-21:29††† (For they had seen before with him in the city Trophimus an Ephesian, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.)
44-21:31††† And as they went about to kill him, tidings came unto the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar.
44-21:35††† And when he came upon the stairs, so it was, that he was borne of the soldiers for the violence of the people.
44-21:38††† Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?
44-22:2†††† (And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to them, they kept the more silence: and he saith,)
44-22:6†††† And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light round about me.
44-22:9†††† And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me.
44-22:11††† And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus.
44-22:14††† And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth.
44-22:17††† And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance;
44-22:19††† And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on thee:
44-22:20††† And when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him.
44-22:22††† And they gave him audience unto this word, and then lifted up their voices, and said, Away with such a fellow from the earth: for it is not fit that he should live.
44-22:24††† The chief captain commanded him to be brought into the castle, and bade that he should be examined by scourging; that he might know wherefore they cried so against him.
44-22:25††† And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said unto the centurion that stood by, Is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman, and uncondemned?
44-22:26††† When the centurion heard that, he went and told the chief captain, saying, Take heed what thou doest: for this man is a Roman.
44-22:29††† Then straightway they departed from him which should have examined him: and the chief captain also was afraid, after he knew that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him.
44-23:2†††† And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth.
44-23:4†††† And they that stood by said, Revilest thou Godís high priest?
44-23:5†††† Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.
44-23:6†††† But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.
44-23:8†††† For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both.
44-23:9†††† And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Phariseesí part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.
44-23:12††† And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.
44-23:14††† And they came to the chief priests and elders, and said, We have bound ourselves under a great curse, that we will eat nothing until we have slain Paul.
44-23:15††† Now therefore ye with the council signify to the chief captain that he bring him down unto you to morrow, as though ye would enquire something more perfectly concerning him: and we, or ever he come near, are ready to kill him.
44-23:19††† Then the chief captain took him by the hand, and went with him aside privately, and asked him, What is that thou hast to tell me?
44-23:20††† And he said, The Jews have agreed to desire thee that thou wouldest bring down Paul to morrow into the council, as though they would enquire somewhat of him more perfectly.
44-23:21††† But do not thou yield unto them: for there lie in wait for him of them more than forty men, which have bound themselves with an oath, that they will neither eat nor drink till they have killed him: and now are they ready, looking for a promise from thee.
44-23:22††† So the chief captain then let the young man depart, and charged him, See thou tell no man that thou hast shewed these things to me.
44-23:24††† And provide them beasts, that they may set Paul on, and bring him safe unto Felix the governor.
44-23:27††† This man was taken of the Jews, and should have been killed of them: then came I with an army, and rescued him, having understood that he was a Roman.
44-23:30††† And when it was told me how that the Jews laid wait for the man, I sent straightway to thee, and gave commandment to his accusers also to say before thee what they had against him. Farewell.
44-23:34††† And when the governor had read the letter, he asked of what province he was. And when he understood that he was of Cilicia;
44-24:2†††† And when he was called forth, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, Seeing that by thee we enjoy great quietness, and that very worthy deeds are done unto this nation by thy providence,
44-24:4†††† Notwithstanding, that I be not further tedious unto thee, I pray thee that thou wouldest hear us of thy clemency a few words.
44-24:9†††† And the Jews also assented, saying that these things were so.
44-24:10††† Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself:
44-24:11††† Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship.
44-24:14††† But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
44-24:15††† And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
44-24:21††† Except it be for this one voice, that I cried standing among them, Touching the resurrection of the dead I am called in question by you this day.
44-24:22††† And when Felix heard these things, having more perfect knowledge of that way, he deferred them, and said, When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will know the uttermost of your matter.
44-24:23††† And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and to let him have liberty, and that he should forbid none of his acquaintance to minister or come unto him.
44-24:26††† He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.
44-25:3†††† And desired favour against him, that he would send for him to Jerusalem, laying wait in the way to kill him.
44-25:4†††† But Festus answered, that Paul should be kept at Caesarea, and that he himself would depart shortly thither.
44-25:16††† To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before that he which is accused have the accusers face to face, and have licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him.
44-25:24††† And Festus said, King Agrippa, and all men which are here present with us, ye see this man, about whom all the multitude of the Jews have dealt with me, both at Jerusalem, and also here, crying that he ought not to live any longer.
44-25:25††† But when I found that he had committed nothing worthy of death, and that he himself hath appealed to Augustus, I have determined to send him.
44-25:26††† Of whom I have no certain thing to write unto my lord. Wherefore I have brought him forth before you, and specially before thee, O king Agrippa, that, after examination had, I might have somewhat to write.
44-26:5†††† Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.
44-26:8†††† Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?
44-26:9†††† I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
44-26:18††† To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
44-26:20††† But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
44-26:23††† That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.
44-26:26††† For the king knoweth of these things, before whom also I speak freely: for I am persuaded that none of these things are hidden from him; for this thing was not done in a corner.
44-26:27††† King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? I know that thou believest.
44-26:29††† And Paul said, I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except these bonds.
44-26:30††† And when he had thus spoken, the king rose up, and the governor, and Bernice, and they that sat with them:
44-27:1†††† And when it was determined that we should sail into Italy, they delivered Paul and certain other prisoners unto one named Julius, a centurion of Augustusí band.
44-27:10††† And said unto them, Sirs, I perceive that this voyage will be with hurt and much damage, not only of the lading and ship, but also of our lives.
44-27:13††† And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, loosing thence, they sailed close by Crete.
44-27:20††† And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.
44-27:24††† Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.
44-27:25††† Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.
44-27:27††† But when the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adria, about midnight the shipmen deemed that they drew near to some country;
44-27:33††† And while the day was coming on, Paul besought them all to take meat, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that ye have tarried and continued fasting, having taken nothing.
44-27:43††† But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose; and commanded that they which could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land:
44-27:44††† And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land.
44-28:1†††† And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.
44-28:6†††† Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.
44-28:8†††† And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him.
44-28:16††† And when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard: but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself with a soldier that kept him.
44-28:17††† And it came to pass, that after three days Paul called the chief of the Jews together: and when they were come together, he said unto them, Men and brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people, or customs of our fathers, yet was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans.
44-28:19††† But when the Jews spake against it, I was constrained to appeal unto Caesar; not that I had ought to accuse my nation of.
44-28:20††† For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see you, and to speak with you: because that for the hope of Israel I am bound with this chain.
44-28:21††† And they said unto him, We neither received letters out of Judaea concerning thee, neither any of the brethren that came shewed or spake any harm of thee.
44-28:22††† But we desire to hear of thee what thou thinkest: for as concerning this sect, we know that every where it is spoken against.
44-28:25††† And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias the prophet unto our fathers,
44-28:28††† Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.
44-28:30††† And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him,
