Acts Chapter 18
18:1 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth;
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.
18:3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and
wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.
18:4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the
Jews and the Greeks.
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.
18:6 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.
18:7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain man's house,
named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the
18:8 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord
with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and
18:9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not
afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:
18:10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for
I have much people in this city.
18:11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of
God among them.
18:12 And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made
insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the
18:13 Saying, This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the
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:
18:15 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.
18:16 And he drave them from the judgment seat.
18:17 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.
18:18 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
18:19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself
entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.
18:20 When they desired him to tarry longer time with them, he consented
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.
18:22 And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the
church, he went down to Antioch.
18:23 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
18:24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent
man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
18:25 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.
18:26 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.
18:27 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:
18:28 For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publickly, shewing by
the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
