044:018:001
After these things Paul departed from Athens,
and came to Corinth;


044:018:002
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.


044:018:003
And because he was of the same craft,
he abode with them,
and wrought:
for by their occupation they were tentmakers.


044:018:004
And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath,
and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.


044:018:005
And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia,
Paul was pressed in the spirit,
and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.


044:018:006
And when they opposed themselves,
and blasphemed,
he shook his raiment,
and said unto them,
Your blood be upon your own heads;
I am clean;
from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.


044:018:007
And he departed thence,
and entered into a certain man's house,
named Justus,
one that worshipped God,
whose house joined hard to the synagogue.


044:018:008
And Crispus,
the chief ruler of the synagogue,
believed on the Lord with all his house;
and many of the Corinthians hearing believed,
and were baptized.


044:018:009
Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision,
Be not afraid,
but speak,
and hold not thy peace:


044:018:010
For I am with thee,
and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee:
for I have much people in this city.


044:018:011
And he continued there a year and six months,
teaching the word of God among them.


044:018:012
And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia,
the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul,
and brought him to the judgment seat,


044:018:013
Saying,
This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law.


044:018:014
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:


044:018:015
But if it be a question of words and names,
and of your law,
look ye to it;
for I will be no judge of such matters.


044:018:016
And he drave them from the judgment seat.


044:018:017
Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes,
the chief ruler of the synagogue,
and beat him before the judgment seat.
And Gallio cared for none of those things.


044:018:018
And Paul after this tarried there yet a good while,
and then took his leave of the brethren,
and sailed thence into Syria,
and with him Priscilla and Aquila;
having shorn his head in Cenchrea:
for he had a vow.


044:018:019
And he came to Ephesus,
and left them there:
but he himself entered into the synagogue,
and reasoned with the Jews.


044:018:020
When they desired him to tarry longer time with them,
he consented not;


044:018:021
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.


044:018:022
And when he had landed at Caesarea,
and gone up,
and saluted the church,
he went down to Antioch.


044:018:023
And after he had spent some time there,
he departed,
and went over all the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order,
strengthening all the disciples.


044:018:024
And a certain Jew named Apollos,
born at Alexandria,
an eloquent man,
and mighty in the scriptures,
came to Ephesus.


044:018:025
This man was instructed in the way of the Lord;
and being fervent in the spirit,
he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord,
knowing only the baptism of John.


044:018:026
And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue:
whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard,
they took him unto them,
and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.


044:018:027
And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia,
the brethren wrote,
exhorting the disciples to receive him:
who,
when he was come,
helped them much which had believed through grace:


044:018:028
For he mightily convinced the Jews,
and that publickly,
shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
