X Acts

1:1 The former writing have I made, O Theophilus, of all that YASHUWAH began both to do and teach,

X Acts

1:2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom he had chosen:

X Acts

1:3 To whom also he showed himself alive after his passion, by many infallible proofs, being seen by them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of Elohim:

X Acts

1:4 And being assembled with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, says he, you* have heard from me.

X Acts

1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but you* shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.

X Acts

1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Master, will you at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?

X Acts

1:7 And he said to them, It is not for you* to know the times or the seasons, which the Father has put in his own power.

X Acts

1:8 But you* shall receive power after the Holy Spirit is come upon you*: and you* shall be witnesses to me, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and to the uttermost part of the earth.

X Acts

1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

X Acts

1:10 And while they looked steadfastly towards heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

X Acts

1:11 Who also said, You* men of Galilee, why stand you* gazing up to heaven? this same YASHUWAH who is taken from you* into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you* have seen him go into heaven.

X Acts

1:12 Then they returned to Jerusalem, from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.

X Acts

1:13 And when they had come in, they went into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.

X Acts

1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Miriam the mother of YASHUWAH, and with his brethren.

X Acts

1:15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said (the number of the names together were about a hundred and twenty,)

X Acts

1:16 Men, brethren, This scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit by the mouth of David spoke before concerning Judas, who was guide to them that took YASHUWAH.

X Acts

1:17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.

X Acts

1:18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.

X Acts

1:19 And it was known to all the dwellers at Jerusalem; so that that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.

X Acts

1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell in it: and, His overseer ministry let another take.

X Acts

1:21 Therefore, of these men who accompanied us, all the time that the Master YASHUWAH went in and out among us,

X Acts

1:22 Beginning from the baptism of John, to that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.

X Acts

1:23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.

X Acts

1:24 And they prayed, and said, You, YASHUWAH, who know the hearts of all men, show which of these two you have chosen,

X Acts

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.

X Acts

1:26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

X Acts

2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

X Acts

2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

X Acts

2:3 And there appeared to them, cloven tongues as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

X Acts

2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

X Acts

2:5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.

X Acts

2:6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because every man heard them speak in his own language.

X Acts

2:7 And they were all amazed, and marveled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these who speak Galileans?

X Acts

2:8 And how do we hear every man in our own language, wherein we were born?

X Acts

2:9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

X Acts

2:10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and Proselytes,

X Acts

2:11 Cretes and Arabians we hear them speak in our languages the wonderful works of Elohim.

X Acts

2:12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What means this?

X Acts

2:13 Others mocking, said, These men are full of new wine.

X Acts

2:14 But Peter standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said to them, You* men of Judea, and all you* that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known to you*, and listen to my words:

X Acts

2:15 For these are not drunken, as you* suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.

X Acts

2:16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel,

X Acts

2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, says Elohim, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your* sons and your* daughters shall prophesy, and your* young men shall see visions, and your* old men shall dream dreams:

X Acts

2:18 And on my servants, and on my hand-maidens I will, in those days, pour out of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

X Acts

2:19 And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs on the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke.

X Acts

2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of YASHUWAH come.

X Acts

2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whoever shall call on the name of YASHUWAH, shall be saved.

X Acts

2:22 You* men of Israel, hear these words; YASHUWAH of Nazareth, a man approved by Elohim among you* by miracles and wonders and signs, which Elohim did by him in the midst of you*, as you* yourselves* also know:

X Acts

2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of Elohim, you* have taken, and by wicked hands have nailed him to the wooden pole and slain:

X Acts

2:24 Whom Elohim has raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be held by it.

X Acts

2:25 For David speaks concerning him, I saw YASHUWAH always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

X Acts

2:26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also, my flesh shall rest in hope:

X Acts

2:27 Because you will not leave my soul in hell, neither will you suffer your Holy One to see corruption:

X Acts

2:28 You have made known to me the ways of life; you will make me full of joy with your countenance.

X Acts

2:29 Men, brethren, let me freely speak to you* concerning the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us to this day.

X Acts

2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that Elohim had sworn to him with an oath, that from the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up the Messiah to sit on his throne;

X Acts

2:31 He seeing this before, spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that his soul was not left in hell, neither did his flesh see corruption.

X Acts

2:32 This YASHUWAH has Elohim raised up, of which we all are witnesses.

X Acts

2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of Elohim exalted, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has shed forth this, which you* now see and hear.

X Acts

2:34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself, YASHUWAH said to my Master, Sit you on my right hand,

X Acts

2:35 Until I make your foes your footstool.

X Acts

2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that Elohim has made that same YASHUWAH whom you* have nailed to the wooden pole, both Master and the Messiah.

X Acts

2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said to Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men, brethren, what shall we do?

X Acts

2:38 Then Peter said to them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you* in the name of YASHUWAH the Messiah, for the remission of sins, and you* shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

X Acts

2:39 For the promise is to you*, and to your* children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as YASHUWAH our Elohim shall call.

X Acts

2:40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves* from this perverse generation.

X Acts

2:41 Then they that gladly received his word, were baptized: and the same day there were added to them about three thousand souls.

X Acts

2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

X Acts

2:43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

X Acts

2:44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

X Acts

2:45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

X Acts

2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, ate their food with gladness and singleness of heart,

X Acts

2:47 Praising Elohim, and having favor with all the people. And YASHUWAH added to the assembly daily such as should be saved.

X Acts

3:1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple, at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

X Acts

3:2 And a certain man lame from his mother's 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.

X Acts

3:3 Who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked an alms.

X Acts

3:4 And Peter fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

X Acts

3:5 And he gave heed to them, expecting to receive something from them.

X Acts

3:6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have I give you: in the name of YASHUWAH the Messiah of Nazareth, rise up and walk.

X Acts

3:7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

X Acts

3:8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising Elohim.

X Acts

3:9 And all the people saw him walking and praising Elohim:

X Acts

3:10 And they knew that it was he who sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened to him.

X Acts

3:11 And as the lame man who was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch that is called Solomon's, greatly watching.

X Acts

3:12 And when Peter saw it, he answered to the people, You* men of Israel, why marvel you* at this? or why look you* so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?

X Acts

3:13 The Elohim of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the Elohim of our fathers has glorified his Son YASHUWAH; whom you* delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.

X Acts

3:14 But you* denied the Holy One, and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted to you*,

X Acts

3:15 And killed the Prince of life, whom Elohim has raised from the dead; of which we are witnesses.

X Acts

3:16 And his name, through faith in his name, has made this man strong, whom you* see and know: yes, the faith which is by him, has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you* all.

X Acts

3:17 And now, brethren, I know that through ignorance you* did it, as did also your* rulers.

X Acts

3:18 But those things which Elohim before had shown by the mouth of all his prophets, that the Messiah should suffer, he has so fulfilled.

X Acts

3:19 Repent you* therefore, and be converted, that your* sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of YASHUWAH,

X Acts

3:20 And he will send YASHUWAH the Messiah, who before was preached to you*:

X Acts

3:21 Whom the heaven must receive, until the times of restitution of all things, which Elohim has spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets, since the world began.

X Acts

3:22 For Moses truly said to the fathers, A Prophet will YASHUWAH your* Elohim raise up to you*, of your* brethren, like me; him shall you* hear in all things, whatever he shall say to you*.

X Acts

3:23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul who will not hear that Prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

X Acts

3:24 And all the prophets also from Samuel, and those that follow, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold these days.

X Acts

3:25 You* are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which Elohim made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, And in your seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.

X Acts

3:26 To you* first, Elohim having raised up his Son YASHUWAH, sent him to bless you*, in turning away every one of you* from his iniquities.

X Acts

4:1 And as they were speaking to the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees came upon them,

X Acts

4:2 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through YASHUWAH the resurrection from the dead.

X Acts

4:3 And they laid hands on them, and put them in custody to the next day: for it was now evening.

X Acts

4:4 But many of them who heard the word, believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.

X Acts

4:5 And it came to pass on to-morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,

X Acts

4:6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were assembled at Jerusalem.

X Acts

4:7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name have you* done this?

X Acts

4:8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, You* rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,

X Acts

4:9 If we this day are examined concerning the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made sound.

X Acts

4:10 Be it known to you* all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of YASHUWAH the Messiah of Nazareth, whom you* nailed to the wooden pole, whom Elohim raised from the dead, even by him does this man stand here before you* sound.

X Acts

4:11 This is the stone which was set at naught by you* builders, which is become the head of the corner.

X Acts

4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, by which we must be saved.

X Acts

4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with YASHUWAH.

X Acts

4:14 And beholding the man who was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.

X Acts

4:15 But when they had commanded them to withdraw from the council, they conferred among themselves,

X Acts

4:16 Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle has been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.

X Acts

4:17 But that it may spread no further among the people, let us strictly threaten them, that they speak from now on to no man in this name.

X Acts

4:18 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all, nor teach in the name of YASHUWAH.

X Acts

4:19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, Whether it is right in the sight of Elohim to listen to you* rather than to Elohim, judge you*.

X Acts

4:20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.

X Acts

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 Elohim for that which was done.

X Acts

4:22 For the man was above forty years old on whom this miracle of healing was did.

X Acts

4:23 And being dismissed, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said to them.

X Acts

4:24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to Elohim with one accord, and said, YASHUWAH, you are Elohim, who have made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that is in them;

X Acts

4:25 Who, by the mouth of your servant David have said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?

X Acts

4:26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were assembled against YASHUWAH, and against his Messiah.

X Acts

4:27 For in truth against your holy child YASHUWAH, whom you have anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were assembled,

X Acts

4:28 To do whatever your hand and your counsel determined before to be done.

X Acts

4:29 And now, YASHUWAH, behold their threatenings: and grant to your servants, that with all boldness they may speak your word,

X Acts

4:30 By stretching forth your hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of your holy child YASHUWAH.

X Acts

4:31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of Elohim with boldness.

X Acts

4:32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart, and of one soul: neither said any of them that aught of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

X Acts

4:33 And with great power the apostles gave testimony of the resurrection of the Master YASHUWAH: and great grace was upon them all.

X Acts

4:34 Neither was there any among them that was in want: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,

X Acts

4:35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made to every man according as he had need.

X Acts

4:36 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,

X Acts

4:37 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.

X Acts

5:1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,

X Acts

5:2 And kept back part of the price, (his wife also being privy to it) and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.

X Acts

5:3 But Peter said, Ananias, Why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

X Acts

5:4 While it remained, was it not your own? and after it was sold, was it not in your own power? why have you conceived this thing in your heart? you have not lied to men, but to Elohim.

X Acts

5:5 And Ananias hearing these words, fell down, and expired. And great fear came on all them that heard these things.

X Acts

5:6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.

X Acts

5:7 And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.

X Acts

5:8 And Peter answered to her, Tell me whether you* sold the land for so much? And she said, Yes, for so much.

X Acts

5:9 Then Peter said to her, How is it that you* have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of YASHUWAH? behold the feet of them who have buried your husband are at the door, and shall carry you out.

X Acts

5:10 Then she fell down immediately at his feet, and expired. And the young men came in, and found her dead, and carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.

X Acts

5:11 And great fear came upon all the assembly, and upon as many as heard these things.

X Acts

5:12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders worked among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.

X Acts

5:13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.

X Acts

5:14 And believers were the more added to YASHUWAH, multitudes both of men and women.)

X Acts

5:15 So 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.

X Acts

5:16 There came also a multitude out of the cities around to Jerusalem, bringing sick persons, and them who were afflicted with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.

X Acts

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,

X Acts

5:18 And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.

X Acts

5:19 But the angel of YASHUWAH by night opened the prison-doors, and brought them forth, and said,

X Acts

5:20 Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

5:22 But when the officers came, and found them not in the prison, they returned, and told,

X Acts

5:23 Saying, The prison truly we found shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doors: but when we had opened, we found no man within.

X Acts

5:24 Now when the high priest, and the captain of the temple, and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them to what this would grow.

X Acts

5:25 Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom you* put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.

X Acts

5:26 Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned.

X Acts

5:27 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,

X Acts

5:28 Saying, Did we not strictly command you*, that you* should not teach in this name? and behold, you* have filled Jerusalem with your* doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.

X Acts

5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey Elohim rather than men.

X Acts

5:30 The Elohim of our fathers raised up YASHUWAH, whom you* slew and hanged on a tree:

X Acts

5:31 Him has Elohim exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

X Acts

5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Spirit, whom Elohim has given to them that obey him.

X Acts

5:33 When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them.

X Acts

5:34 Then stood up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little time.

X Acts

5:35 And said to them, You* men of Israel, take heed to yourselves* what you* intend to do concerning these men:

X Acts

5:36 For before these days rose Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to naught.

X Acts

5:37 After this man rose Judas of Galilee, in the days of the taxing, and drew away many people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed.

X Acts

5:38 And now I say to you*, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work is from men, it will come to naught:

X Acts

5:39 But if it is from Elohim, you* cannot overthrow it; lest haply you* be found even to fight against Elohim.

X Acts

5:40 And to him they assented: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of YASHUWAH, and let them go.

X Acts

5:41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.

X Acts

5:42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach YASHUWAH the Messiah.

X Acts

6:1 And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.

X Acts

6:2 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of Elohim, and serve tables.

X Acts

6:3 Therefore, brethren, look you* out among you* seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.

X Acts

6:4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

X Acts

6:5 And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:

X Acts

6:6 Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed, they laid their hands on them.

X Acts

6:7 And the word of Elohim increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

X Acts

6:8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.

X Acts

6:9 Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia, and of Asia, disputing with Stephen.

X Acts

6:10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spoke.

X Acts

6:11 Then they suborned men, who said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against Elohim.

X Acts

6:12 And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council,

X Acts

6:13 And set up false witnesses, who said, This man ceases not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:

X Acts

6:14 For we have heard him say, that this YASHUWAH of Nazareth will destroy this place, and will change the customs which Moses delivered to us.

X Acts

6:15 And all that sat in the council, looking steadfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.

X Acts

7:1 Then said the high priest, Are these things so?

X Acts

7:2 And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, listen; The Elohim of glory appeared to our father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran,

X Acts

7:3 And said to him, Depart from your country, and from your kindred, and come into the land which I shall show you.

X Acts

7:4 Then he came from the land of the Chaldeans, and dwelt in Charran. And from that place, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land in which you* now dwell.

X Acts

7:5 And he gave him no 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 offspring after him, when as yet he had no child.

X Acts

7:6 And Elohim spoke on this wise, That his offspring should sojourn in a foreign land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and treat them ill four hundred years.

X Acts

7:7 And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said Elohim: and after that they shall come forth, and serve me in this place.

X Acts

7:8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision. And so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.

X Acts

7:9 And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but Elohim was with him,

X Acts

7:10 And delivered him from all his afflictions, and gave him favor and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt, and all his house.

X Acts

7:11 Now there came a drought over all the land of Egypt and Canaan, and great affliction; and our fathers found no sustenance.

X Acts

7:12 But when Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent out our fathers first.

X Acts

7:13 And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren: and Joseph's kindred was made known to Pharaoh.

X Acts

7:14 Then Joseph sent, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, seventy five souls.

X Acts

7:15 So Jacob went down into Egypt, and died, he, and our fathers,

X Acts

7:16 And were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulcher that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor the father of Sychem.

X Acts

7:17 But when the time of the promise drew near, which Elohim had sworn to Abraham, the people grew and multiplied in Egypt,

X Acts

7:18 Till another king arose, who knew not Joseph.

X Acts

7:19 The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and ill-treated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live.

X Acts

7:20 In which time Moses was born, and was exceeding fair, and nourished in his father's house three months:

X Acts

7:21 And when he was cast out, Pharaoh's daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son.

X Acts

7:22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.

X Acts

7:23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit to his brethren the children of Israel.

X Acts

7:24 And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian:

X Acts

7:25 For he supposed his brethren to understand that Elohim by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not.

X Acts

7:26 And the next day he showed himself to them as they were contending, and would have constrained them to be at peace again, saying, Sirs, you* are brethren: why do you* wrong one to another?

X Acts

7:27 But he that did his neighbor wrong, thrust him away, saying, Who made you a ruler and a judge over us?

X Acts

7:28 Will you kill me, as you did the Egyptian yesterday?

X Acts

7:29 Then Moses fled at this saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons.

X Acts

7:30 And when forty years had expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina YASHUWAH in a flame of fire in a bush.

X Acts

7:31 When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight; and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of YASHUWAH came to him,

X Acts

7:32 Saying, I am the Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, and the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.

X Acts

7:33 Then said YASHUWAH to him, Put off your shoes from your feet: for the place where you stand is holy ground.

X Acts

7:34 I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you into Egypt.

X Acts

7:35 This Moses, whom they refused, saying, Who made you a ruler and a judge? the same did Elohim send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel who appeared to him in the bush.

X Acts

7:36 He brought them out, after he had showed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.

X Acts

7:37 This is that Moses, who said to the children of Israel, A prophet will YASHUWAH your* Elohim raise up to you* of your* brethren, like me; him will you* hear.

X Acts

7:38 This is he, that was in the assembly in the wilderness with the angel who spoke to him on the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the living oracles to give to us:

X Acts

7:39 Whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,

X Acts

7:40 Saying to Aaron, Make us elohims to go before us: for as for this Moses, who brought us out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him.

X Acts

7:41 And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice to the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.

X Acts

7:42 Then Elohim turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O you* house of Israel, have you* offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices during forty years in the wilderness?

X Acts

7:43 Yes, you* took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your* elohim Remphan, figures which you* made to worship them: and I will carry you* away beyond Babylon.

X Acts

7:44 Our fathers had the tabernacle of testimony in the wilderness, as he had appointed, speaking to Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen.

X Acts

7:45 Which also our fathers, that came after, brought in with YASHUWAH into the possession of the Gentiles, whom Elohim drove out before the face of our fathers, to the days of David;

X Acts

7:46 Who found favor before Elohim, and desired to find a tabernacle for the Elohim of Jacob.

X Acts

7:47 But Solomon built him a house.

X Acts

7:48 Yet, the Most High dwells not in temples made with hands, as says the prophet,

X Acts

7:49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: What house will you* build for me? says YASHUWAH: or what is the place of my rest?

X Acts

7:50 Has not my hand made all these things?

X Acts

7:51 You* stiff-necked, and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you* do always resist the Holy Spirit: as your* fathers did, so do you*.

X Acts

7:52 Which of the prophets have not your* fathers persecuted? and they have slain them who showed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom you* have been now the betrayers and murderers;

X Acts

7:53 Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.

X Acts

7:54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.

X Acts

7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of Elohim, and YASHUWAH standing on the right hand of Elohim,

X Acts

7:56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of Elohim.

X Acts

7:57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,

X Acts

7:58 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.

X Acts

7:59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon Elohim, and saying, Master YASHUWAH, receive my spirit.

X Acts

7:60 And he kneeled down and cried with a loud voice, YASHUWAH, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

X Acts

8:1 And Saul was consenting to his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the assembly which was at Jerusalem; and they were all dispersed throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.

X Acts

8:2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.

X Acts

8:3 As for Saul, he made havoc of the assembly, entering into every house, and hauling men and women committed them to prison.

X Acts

8:4 Therefore they that were dispersed went every where preaching the word.

X Acts

8:5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached the Messiah to them.

X Acts

8:6 And the people with one accord gave heed to those things which Philip spoke, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.

X Acts

8:7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed.

X Acts

8:8 And there was great joy in that city.

X Acts

8:9 But there was a certain man called Simon, who before in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:

X Acts

8:10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of Elohim.

X Acts

8:11 And to him they had regard, because that for a long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

X Acts

8:12 But when they believed Philip, preaching the things concerning the kingdom of Elohim, and the name of YASHUWAH the Messiah, they were baptized both men and women.

X Acts

8:13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

X Acts

8:14 Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of Elohim, they sent to them Peter and John:

X Acts

8:15 Who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit:

X Acts

8:16 (For as yet he had fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Master YASHUWAH.)

X Acts

8:17 Then they laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.

X Acts

8:18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money,

X Acts

8:19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Spirit.

X Acts

8:20 But Peter said to him, Your money perish with you, because you have thought that the gift of Elohim may be purchased with money.

X Acts

8:21 You have neither part nor lot in this matter: for your heart is not right in the sight of Elohim.

X Acts

8:22 Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray Elohim, if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.

X Acts

8:23 For I perceive that you are in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.

X Acts

8:24 Then answered Simon, and said, Pray you* to YASHUWAH for me, that none of these things which you* have spoken come upon me.

X Acts

8:25 And they, when they had testified and preached the word of YASHUWAH, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.

X Acts

8:26 And the angel of YASHUWAH spoke to Philip, saying, Arise, and go towards the south, to the way that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza, which is desert.

X Acts

8:27 And he arose, and went: and behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem to worship,

X Acts

8:28 Was returning; and sitting in his chariot, read Isaiah the prophet.

X Acts

8:29 Then the Spirit said to Philip, Go near and join yourself to this chariot.

X Acts

8:30 And Philip ran toward that place to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, Understandest you what you read?

X Acts

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.

X Acts

8:32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so he opened not his mouth:

X Acts

8:33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.

X Acts

8:34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray you, of whom speaks the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?

X Acts

8:35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached to him YASHUWAH.

X Acts

8:36 And as they went on their way, they came to a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what does hinder me to be baptized?

X Acts

8:37 And Philip said, If you believe with all your heart, you may. And he answered and said, I believe that YASHUWAH the Messiah is the Son of Elohim.

X Acts

8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they both went down into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

X Acts

8:39 And when they had come up out of the water, the Spirit of YASHUWAH caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.

X Acts

8:40 But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through, he preached in all the cities, till he came to Cesarea.

X Acts

9:1 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Master, went to the high priest,

X Acts

9:2 And desired from him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he should find any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

X Acts

9:3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined around him a light from heaven:

X Acts

9:4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why persecute you me?

X Acts

9:5 And he said, Who are you, Master? And the Master said, I am YASHUWAH whom you persecute. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.

X Acts

9:6 And he trembling and astonished said, Master, what will you have me to do? And the Master said to him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told you what you must do.

X Acts

9:7 And the men who journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.

X Acts

9:8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.

X Acts

9:9 And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank.

X Acts

9:10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Master in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Master.

X Acts

9:11 And the Master said to him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus: for behold, he prays,

X Acts

9:12 And has seen in a vision a man named Ananias, coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.

X Acts

9:13 Then Ananias answered, Master, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he has done to your saints at Jerusalem:

X Acts

9:14 And here he has authority from the chief priests, to bind all that call on your name.

X Acts

9:15 But the Master said to him, Go, for he is a chosen vessel to me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel.

X Acts

9:16 For I will show him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.

X Acts

9:17 And Ananias went, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him, said, Brother Saul, the Master (even YASHUWAH that appeared to you in the way as you came) has sent me, that you may receive your sight, and be filled with the Holy Spirit.

X Acts

9:18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight immediately, and arose, and was baptized.

X Acts

9:19 And when he had received food, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples who were at Damascus.

X Acts

9:20 And immediately he preached the Messiah in the synagogues, that he is the Son of Elohim.

X Acts

9:21 But all that heard him were amazed, and said, Is not this he that destroyed them who called on this name in Jerusalem, and came here for that intent, that he might bring them bound to the chief priests?

X Acts

9:22 But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very the Messiah.

X Acts

9:23 And after many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him.

X Acts

9:24 But their laying in wait, was known to Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.

X Acts

9:25 Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.

X Acts

9:26 And when Saul had come to Jerusalem, he essayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.

X Acts

9:27 But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared to them how he had seen the Master in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of YASHUWAH.

X Acts

9:28 And he was with them coming in and going out at Jerusalem.

X Acts

9:29 And he spoke boldly in the name of the Master YASHUWAH, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him.

X Acts

9:30 Which when the brethren knew, they brought him down to Cesarea, and sent him forth to Tarsus.

X Acts

9:31 Then had the assemblies rest throughout all Judea, and Galilee, and Samaria, and were edified: and walking in the fear of YASHUWAH, and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, were multiplied.

X Acts

9:32 And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints who dwelt at Lydda.

X Acts

9:33 And there he found a certain man named Eneas, who had kept his bed eight years, and was sick with the paralysis.

X Acts

9:34 And Peter said to him, Eneas, YASHUWAH the Messiah heals you: arise, and make your bed. And he arose immediately.

X Acts

9:35 And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to YASHUWAH.

X Acts

9:36 Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, who by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and alms-deeds which she did.

X Acts

9:37 And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom, when they had washed, they laid in an upper chamber.

X Acts

9:38 And as Lydda was near to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent to him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.

X Acts

9:39 Then Peter arose, and went with them. When he had come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and showing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them.

X Acts

9:40 But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning to the body, said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up.

X Acts

9:41 And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up; and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive.

X Acts

9:42 And it was known throughout all Joppa: and many believed in the Master.

X Acts

9:43 And it came to pass, that he stayed many days in Joppa with one Simon a tanner.

X Acts

10:1 There was a certain man in Cesarea, called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band,

X Acts

10:2 A devout man, and one that feared Elohim with all his house, who gave much alms to the people, and prayed to Elohim always.

X Acts

10:3 He saw in a vision evidently, about the ninth hour of the day, an angel of Elohim coming in to him, and saying to him, Cornelius.

X Acts

10:4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Master? And he said to him, Your prayers and your alms are come up for a memorial before Elohim.

X Acts

10:5 And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter:

X Acts

10:6 He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea-side: he will tell you what you ought to do.

X Acts

10:7 And when the angel who spoke to Cornelius had departed, he called two of his household servants, and a devout soldier of them that waited on him continually;

X Acts

10:8 And when he had declared all these things to them, he sent them to Joppa.

X Acts

10:9 On to-morrow, as they were going on their journey, and drew near to the city, Peter went up upon the house-top to pray, about the sixth hour:

X Acts

10:10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,

X Acts

10:11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending to him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:

X Acts

10:12 In which were all manner of four-footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping animals, and fowls of the air.

X Acts

10:13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

X Acts

10:14 But Peter said, Not so, Master; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.

X Acts

10:15 And the voice spoke to him again the second time, What Elohim has cleansed, that call not you common.

X Acts

10:16 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received again into heaven.

X Acts

10:17 Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men who were sent from Cornelius had made inquiry for Simon's house, and were standing before the gate,

X Acts

10:18 And called, and asked whether Simon, who was surnamed Peter, lodged there.

X Acts

10:19 While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said to him, Behold, three men seek you.

X Acts

10:20 Arise therefore, and go down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.

X Acts

10:21 Then Peter went down to the men who were sent to him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom you* seek: what is the cause for which you* have come?

X Acts

10:22 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that fears Elohim, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from Elohim by a holy angel to send for you into his house, and to hear words from you.

X Acts

10:23 Then he called them in, and lodged them. And on to-morrow Peter went with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him.

X Acts

10:24 And on to-morrow they entered into Cesarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends.

X Acts

10:25 And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshiped him.

X Acts

10:26 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up: I myself also am a man.

X Acts

10:27 And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that had come together.

X Acts

10:28 And he said to them, You* know that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come to one of another nation; but Elohim has shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean.

X Acts

10:29 Therefore I came to you* without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent you* have sent for me?

X Acts

10:30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,

X Acts

10:31 And said, Cornelius, your prayer is heard, and your alms are had in remembrance in the sight of Elohim.

X Acts

10:32 Send therefore to Joppa, and call here Simon, whose surname is Peter; he lodgeth in the house of one Simon a tanner, by the sea-side: who, when he comes, will speak to you.

X Acts

10:33 Immediately therefore I sent to you; and you have well done that you have come. Now therefore we are all here present before Elohim, to hear all things that are commanded you from Elohim.

X Acts

10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, In truth I perceive that Elohim is no respecter of persons:

X Acts

10:35 But in every nation he that fears him, and works righteousness, is accepted with him.

X Acts

10:36 The word which Elohim sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace by YASHUWAH the Messiah: (he is Master of all:)

X Acts

10:37 That word, I say, you* know, which was published throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

X Acts

10:38 That Elohim anointed YASHUWAH of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed by the devil; for Elohim was with him.

X Acts

10:39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did, both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree.

X Acts

10:40 Him Elohim raised the third day, and showed him openly;

X Acts

10:41 Not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before by Elohim, even to us, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.

X Acts

10:42 And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is he who was ordained by Elohim to be the Judge of the living and the dead.

X Acts

10:43 To him give all the prophets testimony, that through his name whoever believes in him shall receive remission of sins.

X Acts

10:44 While Peter was yet speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all them who heard the word.

X Acts

10:45 And they of the circumcision who believed, were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Spirit.

X Acts

10:46 For they heard them speak in languages and magnify Elohim. Then answered Peter,

X Acts

10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, who have received the Holy Spirit as well as we?

X Acts

10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Master. Then they requested him to stay certain days.

X Acts

11:1 And the apostles and brethren that were in Judea, heard that the Gentiles also had received the word of Elohim.

X Acts

11:2 And when Peter had come to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him,

X Acts

11:3 Saying, You went in to men uncircumcised, and did eat with them.

X Acts

11:4 But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order to them, saying,

X Acts

11:5 I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me:

X Acts

11:6 Upon which when I had fastened my eyes, I considered, and saw four-footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping animals, and fowls of the air.

X Acts

11:7 And I heard a voice saying to me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat.

X Acts

11:8 But I said, Not so, Master: for nothing common or unclean has at any time entered into my mouth.

X Acts

11:9 But the voice answered me again from heaven, What Elohim has cleansed, that call not you common.

X Acts

11:10 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.

X Acts

11:11 And behold, immediately there were three men already come to the house where I was, sent from Cesarea to me.

X Acts

11:12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover, these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house:

X Acts

11:13 And he showed us how he had seen an angel in his house, who stood and said to him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter;

X Acts

11:14 Who shall tell you words, by which you and all your house shall be saved.

X Acts

11:15 And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them, as on us at the beginning.

X Acts

11:16 Then I remembered the word of the Master, how he said, John indeed baptized with water; but you* shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.

X Acts

11:17 Forasmuch then as Elohim gave them the like gift as he did to us, who believed on the Master YASHUWAH the Messiah, what was I that I could withstand Elohim?

X Acts

11:18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified Elohim, saying, Then has Elohim also to the Gentiles granted repentance to life.

X Acts

11:19 Now they who were dispersed upon the persecution that arose about Stephen traveled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but to the Jews only.

X Acts

11:20 And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who when they had come to Antioch, spoke to the Grecians, preaching the Master YASHUWAH.

X Acts

11:21 And the hand of YASHUWAH was with them: and a great number believed, and turned to YASHUWAH.

X Acts

11:22 Then the news of these things came to the ears of the assembly which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch.

X Acts

11:23 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of Elohim, was glad, and exhorted them all that with purpose of heart they would cleave to YASHUWAH.

X Acts

11:24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Spirit, and of faith: and many people were added to YASHUWAH.

X Acts

11:25 Then Barnabas departed to Tarsus, to seek Saul:

X Acts

11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the assembly, and taught many people. And the disciples were first called Messianics in Antioch.

X Acts

11:27 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem to Antioch.

X Acts

11:28 And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great drought throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Cesar.

X Acts

11:29 Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief to the brethren who dwelt in Judea.

X Acts

11:30 Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

X Acts

12:1 Now about that time, Herod the king stretched forth his hands to persecute certain of the assembly.

X Acts

12:2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.

X Acts

12:3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. Then were the days of unleavened bread. (see: Luke 22:1)

X Acts

12:4 And when he had arrested him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after the Passover season to bring him forth to the people.

X Acts

12:5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing by the assembly to Elohim for him.

X Acts

12:6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains; and the keepers before the door kept the prison.

X Acts

12:7 And behold, the angel of YASHUWAH came upon him, and a light shined in the prison; and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

X Acts

12:8 And the angel said to him, Gird yourself, and bind on your sandals; and so he did. And he says to him, Cast your garment about you, and follow me.

X Acts

12:9 And he went out, and followed him, and knew not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

X Acts

12:10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came to the iron gate that leads to the city; which opened to them of its own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and immediately the angel departed from him.

X Acts

12:11 And when Peter had come to himself, he said, Now I know with certainty, that YASHUWAH has sent his angel, and has delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.

X Acts

12:12 And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Miriam the mother of John whose surname was Mark; where many were assembled, praying.

X Acts

12:13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a maiden came to listen, named Rhoda.

X Acts

12:14 And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told that Peter stood before the gate.

X Acts

12:15 And they said to her, You are insane. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then they said, It is his angel.

X Acts

12:16 But Peter continued knocking. And when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.

X Acts

12:17 But he beckoning to them with the hand to hold silence, declared to them how YASHUWAH had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go, tell these things to James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.

X Acts

12:18 Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter.

X Acts

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. But Peter went down from Judea to Cesarea, and there abode.

X Acts

12:20 And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon. But they came with one accord to him, and having made Blastus the king's chamberlain their friend, desired peace, because their country was nourished by the king's country.

X Acts

12:21 And upon a set day, Herod arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration to them.

X Acts

12:22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a elohim, and not of a man.

X Acts

12:23 And immediately the angel of YASHUWAH smote him, because he gave not Elohim the glory: and he was eaten by worms, and died.

X Acts

12:24 But the word of Elohim grew and multiplied.

X Acts

12:25 And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled their ministry, and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.

X Acts

13:1 Now there were in the assembly that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.

X Acts

13:2 As they ministered to YASHUWAH, and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, Separate for me Barnabas and Saul, for the work to which I have called them.

X Acts

13:3 And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.

X Acts

13:4 So they being sent forth by the Holy Spirit, departed to Seleucia; and from that place they sailed to Cyprus.

X Acts

13:5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of Elohim in the synagogues of the Jews. And they had also John for their minister.

X Acts

13:6 And when they had gone through the island to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Baryeshua:

X Acts

13:7 Who was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of Elohim.

X Acts

13:8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.

X Acts

13:9 Then Saul (who also is called Paul) filled with the Holy Spirit, set his eyes on him,

X Acts

13:10 And said, O full of all subtilty, and all mischief, you child of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to pervert the right ways of YASHUWAH?

X Acts

13:11 And now behold, the hand of YASHUWAH is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.

X Acts

13:12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Master.

X Acts

13:13 Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia. And John departing from them, returned to Jerusalem.

X Acts

13:14 But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath, and sat down.

X Acts

13:15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets, the rulers of the synagogue sent to them, saying, Men, brethren, if you* have any word of exhortation for the people, speak.

X Acts

13:16 Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with his hand, said, Men of Israel, and you* that fear Elohim, give audience.

X Acts

13:17 The Elohim of this people Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt, and with a high arm he brought them out of it.

X Acts

13:18 And about the time of forty years he suffered their manners in the wilderness.

X Acts

13:19 And when he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, he divided their land to them by lot.

X Acts

13:20 And after that he gave to them judges, about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet.

X Acts

13:21 And afterward they desired a king: and Elohim gave to them Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years.

X Acts

13:22 And when he had removed him, he raised up to them David to be their king: to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after my own heart, who shall fulfill all my will.

X Acts

13:23 Of this man's offspring has Elohim, according to his promise, raised up to Israel a Saviour, YASHUWAH:

X Acts

13:24 John having first preached, before his coming, the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.

X Acts

13:25 And as John fulfilled his course, he said, Whom think you* that I am? I am not he. But behold, there comes one after me, whose shoes of his feet I am not worthy to loose.

X Acts

13:26 Men, brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whoever among you* fears Elohim, to you* is the word of this salvation sent.

X Acts

13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the words of the prophets which are read every sabbath, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.

X Acts

13:28 And though they found no cause of death in him, yet they desired Pilate that he should be put to death.

X Acts

13:29 And when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulcher.

X Acts

13:30 But Elohim raised him from the dead:

X Acts

13:31 And he was seen many days by them who came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses to the people.

X Acts

13:32 And we declare to you* the glad the news, that the promise which was made to the fathers,

X Acts

13:33 Elohim has fulfilled the same to us their children, in that he has raised up YASHUWAH again; as it is also written in the second psalm, You are my Son, this day have I begotten you.

X Acts

13:34 And as concerning that he raised him from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you* the sure mercies of David.

X Acts

13:35 Therefore he says also in another psalm, You will not suffer your Holy One to see corruption.

X Acts

13:36 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of Elohim, fell asleep, and was laid to his fathers, and saw corruption:

X Acts

13:37 But he whom Elohim raised again, saw no corruption.

X Acts

13:38 Be it known to you* therefore, men, brethren, that through this man is preached to you* the forgiveness of sins;

X Acts

13:39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which you* could not be justified by the law of Moses.

X Acts

13:40 Beware therefore, lest that come upon you* which is spoken in the prophets;

X Acts

13:41 Behold, you* despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your* days, a work which you* will in no wise believe, though a man declare it to you*.

X Acts

13:42 And when the Jews had gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.

X Acts

13:43 Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas; who speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of Elohim.

X Acts

13:44 And the next sabbath came almost the whole city together to hear the word of Elohim.

X Acts

13:45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spoke against those things which were uttered by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.

X Acts

13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas became bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of Elohim should first be spoken to you*: but seeing you* reject it, and judge yourselves* unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.

X Acts

13:47 For so has the Master commanded us, saying, I have set you to be a light of the Gentiles, that you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.

X Acts

13:48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of YASHUWAH: and as many as were ordained to eternal life, believed.

X Acts

13:49 And the word of YASHUWAH was published throughout all the region.

X Acts

13:50 But the Jews stirred up the devout and honorable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their borders.

X Acts

13:51 But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came to Iconium.

X Acts

13:52 And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.

X Acts

14:1 And it came to pass in Iconium, that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spoke, that a great multitude both of the Jews, and also of the Greeks, believed.

X Acts

14:2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles, and made their minds evil-affected against the brethren.

X Acts

14:3 A long time therefore they abode speaking boldly in the Master, who gave testimony to the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.

X Acts

14:4 But the multitude of the city was divided: and part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles.

X Acts

14:5 And when there was an assault made both of the Gentiles, and also of the Jews, with their rulers, to use them despitefully, and to stone them,

X Acts

14:6 Being apprised of it, they fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the region in that vicinity.

X Acts

14:7 And there they preached the gospel.

X Acts

14:8 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who had never walked.

X Acts

14:9 The same heard Paul speak: who steadfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,

X Acts

14:10 Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on your feet. And he leaped and walked.

X Acts

14:11 And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The elohims have come down to us in the likeness of men.

X Acts

14:12 And they called Barnabas, Jupiter, and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.

X Acts

14:13 Then the priest of Jupiter, who was before their city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people.

X Acts

14:14 Which, when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out,

X Acts

14:15 And saying, Sirs, why do you* these things? We also are men of like passions with you*, and preach to you*, that you* should turn from these vanities to the living Elohim, who made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all things that are in them.

X Acts

14:16 Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

14:18 And with these sayings they scarce restrained the people from doing sacrifice to them.

X Acts

14:19 And there came toward that place certain Jews from Antioch, and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and having stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing him to be dead.

X Acts

14:20 But as the disciples stood around him, he rose, and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.

X Acts

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 to Antioch,

X Acts

14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of Elohim.

X Acts

14:23 And when they had ordained for them elders in every assembly, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Master, on whom they believed.

X Acts

14:24 And after they had passed throughout Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia.

X Acts

14:25 And when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down into Attalia:

X Acts

14:26 And that place sailed to Antioch, from where they had been commended to the grace of Elohim, for the work which they fulfilled.

X Acts

14:27 And when they had come, and had assembled the assembly, they rehearsed all that Elohim had done with them, and that he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.

X Acts

14:28 And there they abode a long time with the disciples.

X Acts

15:1 And certain men who came down from Judea, taught the brethren, and said, Except you* be circumcised after the manner of Moses, you* cannot be saved.

X Acts

15:2 When therefore Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and disputation with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain others of them, should go to Jerusalem to the apostles and elders about this question.

X Acts

15:3 And being brought on their way by the assembly, they passed through Phenice, and Samaria, declaring the conversion of the Gentiles: and they caused great joy to all the brethren.

X Acts

15:4 And when they had come to Jerusalem, they were received by the assembly, and by the apostles and elders, and they declared all things that Elohim had done with them.

X Acts

15:5 But there rose certain of the sect of the Pharisees, who believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.

X Acts

15:6 And the apostles and elders came together to consider of this matter.

X Acts

15:7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose and said to them, Men, brethren, you* know that a good while ago, Elohim made choice among us, that the Gentiles, by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.

X Acts

15:8 And Elohim, who knows the hearts, bore them witness, giving to them the Holy Spirit, even as he did to us:

X Acts

15:9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.

X Acts

15:10 Now therefore why tempt you* Elohim, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?

X Acts

15:11 But we believe, that through the grace of the Master YASHUWAH the Messiah, we shall be saved even as they.

X Acts

15:12 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, declaring what miracles and wonders Elohim had worked by them among the Gentiles.

X Acts

15:13 And after they held their peace, James answered, saying, Men, brethren, listen to me.

X Acts

15:14 Simeon has declared how Elohim at the first visited to the Gentiles to take from among them a people for his name.

X Acts

15:15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,

X Acts

15:16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins of it; and I will set it up:

X Acts

15:17 That the residue of men may seek after YASHUWAH, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, says YASHUWAH, who does all these things.

X Acts

15:18 Known to Elohim are all his works from the beginning of the world.

X Acts

15:19 Therefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, who from among the Gentiles are turned to Elohim:

X Acts

15:20 But that we write to them that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.

X Acts

15:21 For Moses of old time has in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath.

X Acts

15:22 Then it pleased the apostles and elders, with the whole assembly, to send chosen men of their own company to Antioch, with Paul and Barnabas; namely, Judas surnamed Barsabas, and Silas, chief men among the brethren:

X Acts

15:23 And they wrote letters by them after this manner; The apostles, and elders, and brethren, send greeting to the brethren who are of the Gentiles in Antioch, and Syria, and Cilicia.

X Acts

15:24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain who went out from us, have troubled you* with words, subverting your* souls, saying, You* must be circumcised, and keep the law; to whom we gave no such commandment:

X Acts

15:25 It seemed good to us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men to you*, with our beloved Barnabas and Paul:

X Acts

15:26 Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Master YASHUWAH the Messiah.

X Acts

15:27 We have sent therefore Judas and Silas, who will also tell you* the same things by mouth.

X Acts

15:28 For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you* no greater burden than these necessary things;

X Acts

15:29 That you* abstain from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if you* keep yourselves*, you* will do well. Fare you* well.

X Acts

15:30 So when they were dismissed, they came to Antioch: and when they had convened the multitude, they delivered the epistle.

X Acts

15:31 Which when they had read, they rejoiced for the consolation.

X Acts

15:32 And Judas and Silas, being prophets also themselves, exhorted the brethren with many words, and confirmed them.

X Acts

15:33 And after they had stayed there a time, they were dismissed in peace from the brethren to the apostles.

X Acts

15:34 Although, it pleased Silas to abide there still.

X Acts

15:35 Paul also and Barnabas continued in Antioch, teaching and preaching the word of YASHUWAH, with many others also.

X Acts

15:36 And some days after, Paul said to Barnabas, Let us go again and visit to our brethren, in every city where we have preached the word of YASHUWAH, and see how they do.

X Acts

15:37 And Barnabas determined to take with them John, whose surname was Mark.

X Acts

15:38 But Paul thought not good to take him with them, who departed from them from Pamphylia, and went not with them to the work.

X Acts

15:39 And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed, separating one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed to Cyprus.

X Acts

15:40 And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being commended by the brethren to the grace of Elohim.

X Acts

15:41 And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the assemblies.

X Acts

16:1 Then he came to Derbe and Lystra: and behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timothy, the son of a certain woman who was a Jewess, and believed, but his father was a Greek.

X Acts

16:2 Who was well reported of by the brethren that were at Lystra and Iconium.

X Acts

16:3 Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him, because of the Jews who were in those quarters: for they all knew that his father was a Greek.

X Acts

16:4 And as they went through the cities, they delivered to them the decrees to keep that were ordained by the apostles and elders who were at Jerusalem.

X Acts

16:5 And so were the assemblies established in the faith, and increased in number daily.

X Acts

16:6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia, and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia;

X Acts

16:7 After they had come to Mysia, they essayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.

X Acts

16:8 And they, passing by Mysia, came down to Troas.

X Acts

16:9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.

X Acts

16:10 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavored to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering, that YASHUWAH had called us to preach the gospel to them.

X Acts

16:11 Therefore loosing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the next day to Neapolis;

X Acts

16:12 And from that place to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days.

X Acts

16:13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spoke to the women who resorted toward that place.

X Acts

16:14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, who worshiped Elohim, heard us: whose heart YASHUWAH opened, that she attended to the things which were spoken by Paul.

X Acts

16:15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If you* have judged me to be faithful to YASHUWAH, come into my house, and abide there: And she constrained us.

X Acts

16:16 And it came to pass as we went to prayer, a certain maiden possessed with a spirit of divination, met us, who brought her masters much gain by sooth-saying:

X Acts

16:17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high Elohim, who show to us the way of salvation.

X Acts

16:18 And this she did many days. But Paul being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command you in the name of YASHUWAH the Messiah to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.

X Acts

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 market-place to the rulers,

X Acts

16:20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,

X Acts

16:21 And teach customs which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.

X Acts

16:22 And the multitude rose together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.

X Acts

16:23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely.

X Acts

16:24 Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.

X Acts

16:25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises to Elohim: and the prisoners heard them.

X Acts

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 one's bands were loosed.

X Acts

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 fled.

X Acts

16:28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do yourself no harm: for we are all here.

X Acts

16:29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas;

X Acts

16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

X Acts

16:31 And they said, Believe on the Master YASHUWAH the Messiah, and you shall be saved, and your house.

X Acts

16:32 And they spoke to him the word of YASHUWAH, and to all that were in his house.

X Acts

16:33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, without delay.

X Acts

16:34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them, and rejoiced, believing in Elohim with all his house.

X Acts

16:35 And when it was day, the magistrates sent the sergeants, saying, Let those men go.

X Acts

16:36 And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, The magistrates have sent to let you* go: now therefore depart, and go in peace.

X Acts

16:37 But Paul said to them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privately? no truly; but let them come themselves and bring us out.

X Acts

16:38 And the sergeants told these words to the magistrates: and they feared when they heard that they were Romans.

X Acts

16:39 And they came and besought them, and brought them out, and desired them to depart out of the city.

X Acts

16:40 And they went out of the prison, and entered into the house of Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.

X Acts

17:1 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis, and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews.

X Acts

17:2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in to them, and on three sabbaths reasoned with them out of the scriptures,

X Acts

17:3 Opening and alledging, that it was needful that the Messiah should suffer, and rise again from the dead; and that this YASHUWAH, whom I preach to you*, is the Messiah.

X Acts

17:4 And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas: and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few.

X Acts

17:5 But the Jews who believed not, moved with envy, took to them certain vile fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city in an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.

X Acts

17:6 And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren to the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down, have come here also;

X Acts

17:7 Whom Jason has received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Cesar, saying, That there is another king, one YASHUWAH.

X Acts

17:8 And they troubled the people, and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.

X Acts

17:9 And when they had taken security of Jason and of the other, they let them go.

X Acts

17:10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night to Berea: who coming toward that place, went into the synagogue of the Jews.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

17:12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honorable women who were Greeks, and of men not a few.

X Acts

17:13 But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of Elohim was preached by Paul at Berea, they came toward that place also, and stirred up the people.

X Acts

17:14 And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul, to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timothy abode there still.

X Acts

17:15 And they that conducted Paul brought him to Athens: and receiving a commandment to Silas and Timothy to come to him with all speed, they departed.

X Acts

17:16 Now, while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.

X Acts

17:17 Therefore he disputed in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.

X Acts

17:18 Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoics, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? some others, He seems to be a setter-forth of strange elohims: because he preached to them YASHUWAH, and the resurrection.

X Acts

17:19 And they took him, and brought him to Areopagus, saying, May we know what this new doctrine is, of which you speak?

X Acts

17:20 For you bringest certain strange things to our ears; we would know therefore what these things mean.

X Acts

17:21 (For all the Athenians and strangers who were there, spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)

X Acts

17:22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars-hill, and said, You* men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you* are too superstitious.

X Acts

17:23 For as I passed by, and beheld your* devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN ELOHIM. Whom therefore you* ignorantly worship, him declare I to you*.

X Acts

17:24 Elohim that made the world, and all things in it, seeing that he is Master of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands;

X Acts

17:25 Neither is worshiped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he gives to all life, and breath, and all things;

X Acts

17:26 And has made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

X Acts

17:27 That they should seek YASHUWAH, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he is not far from every one of us:

X Acts

17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your* own poets have said, for we are also his offspring.

X Acts

17:29 Being then the offspring of Elohim, we ought not to think that the Elohim-Himself is like to gold, or silver, or stone graven by art and man's device.

X Acts

17:30 And the times of this ignorance Elohim winked at; but now commands all men every where to repent:

X Acts

17:31 Because he has appointed a day, in which he will judge the world in righteousness, by that man whom he has ordained: of which he has given assurance to all men, in that he has raised him from the dead.

X Acts

17:32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear you again concerning this matter.

X Acts

17:33 So Paul departed from among them.

X Acts

17:34 But certain men adhered to him, and believed: among whom was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

X Acts

18:1 After these things, Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth;

X Acts

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 he came to them.

X Acts

18:3 And because he was of the same occupation, he abode with them, and worked (for by their occupation they were tent-makers)

X Acts

18:4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.

X Acts

18:5 And when Silas and Timothy had come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in spirit, and testified to the Jews, that YASHUWAH was the Messiah.

X Acts

18:6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said to them, Your* blood be upon your* own heads: I am clean: from now on I will go to the Gentiles.

X Acts

18:7 And he departed that place, and entered into the house of a certain man named Justus, one that worshiped Elohim, whose house joined close to the synagogue.

X Acts

18:8 And Crispus the chief ruler of the synagogue believed on the Master with all his house: and many of the Corinthians hearing, believed, and were baptized.

X Acts

18:9 Then the Master spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not your peace:

X Acts

18:10 For I am with you, and no man shall lay hands on you, to hurt you: for I have many people in this city.

X Acts

18:11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of Elohim among them.

X Acts

18:12 And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgment-seat,

X Acts

18:13 Saying, This man persuadeth men to worship Elohim contrary to the law.

X Acts

18:14 And when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong, or hainous crime, O you* Jews, reason would that I should bear with you*:

X Acts

18:15 But if it is a question of words and names, and of your* law, look you* to it: for I will be no judge of such matters.

X Acts

18:16 And he drove them from the judgment-seat.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

18:18 And Paul after this stayed there yet a good while, and took his leave of the brethren, and sailed that place into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.

X Acts

18:19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.

X Acts

18:20 When they desired him to stay longer time with them, he consented not:

X Acts

18:21 But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that comes in Jerusalem: but I will return to you*, if Elohim will. And he sailed from Ephesus.

X Acts

18:22 And when he had landed at Cesarea, and gone up and saluted the assembly, he went down to Antioch.

X Acts

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 disciples.

X Acts

18:24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.

X Acts

18:25 This man was instructed in the way of YASHUWAH: and being fervent in the spirit, he spoke and taught diligently the things of YASHUWAH, knowing only the baptism of John.

X Acts

18:26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: Whom, when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him to them, and expounded to him the way of Elohim more perfectly.

X Acts

18:27 And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he had come, helped them much who had believed through grace.

X Acts

18:28 For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, showing by the scriptures, that YASHUWAH was the Messiah.

X Acts

19:1 And it came to pass, that while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper region, came to Ephesus; and finding certain disciples,

X Acts

19:2 He said to them, Have you* received the Holy Spirit since you* believed? And they said to him, We have not so much as heard whether there is any Holy Spirit.

X Acts

19:3 And he said to them, Into what then were you* baptized? And they said, Into John's baptism.

X Acts

19:4 Then said Paul, John truly baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying to the people, That they should believe on him who should come after him, that is, on the Messiah YASHUWAH.

X Acts

19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized into the name of the Master YASHUWAH.

X Acts

19:6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came on them; and they spoke in languages, and prophesied.

X Acts

19:7 And all the men were about twelve.

X Acts

19:8 And he went into the synagogue, and spoke boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of Elohim.

X Acts

19:9 But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spoke evil of that way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus.

X Acts

19:10 And this continued for the space of two years; so that all they who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Master YASHUWAH, both Jews and Greeks.

X Acts

19:11 And Elohim worked special miracles by the hands of Paul:

X Acts

19:12 So that from his body were brought to the sick, handkerchiefs, or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

X Acts

19:13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them who had evil spirits, the name of the Master YASHUWAH, saying, We adjure you* by YASHUWAH whom Paul preaches.

X Acts

19:14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva a Jew, and chief of the priests, who did so.

X Acts

19:15 And the evil spirit answered and said, YASHUWAH I know, and Paul I know; but who are you*?

X Acts

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.

X Acts

19:17 And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus: and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Master YASHUWAH was magnified.

X Acts

19:18 And many that believed came, and confessed, and showed their deeds.

X Acts

19:19 Many also of them who used curious arts, brought their books together, and burned them before all men; and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.

X Acts

19:20 So mightily grew the word of Elohim, and prevailed.

X Acts

19:21 After these things were ended, Paul purposed in the spirit, when he had passed through Macedonia, and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, saying, After I have been there, I must also see Rome.

X Acts

19:22 So he sent into Macedonia two of them that ministered to him, Timothy and Erastus; but he himself stayed in Asia for a season.

X Acts

19:23 And the same time there arose no small stir about that way.

X Acts

19:24 For a certain man named Demetrius, a silver-smith, who made silver shrines for Diana, brought no small gain to the artificers;

X Acts

19:25 Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, you* know that by this craft we have our wealth:

X Acts

19:26 Moreover, you* see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul has persuaded and turned away many people, saying, that they are no elohims which are made with hands.

X Acts

19:27 So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at naught; but also that the temple of the great elohimdess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia, and the world worship.

X Acts

19:28 And when they heard these sayings, they were full of wrath, and cried out, saying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians.

X Acts

19:29 And the whole city was filled with confusion: and having caught Gaius and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, Paul's companions in travel, they rushed with one accord into the theater.

X Acts

19:30 And when Paul would have entered in to the people, the disciples suffered him not.

X Acts

19:31 And certain of the chief of Asia, who were his friends, sent to him, desiring him that he would not adventure himself into the theater.

X Acts

19:32 Some therefore cried one thing, and some another: for the assembly was confused, and the greater part knew not why they had come together.

X Acts

19:33 And they drew Alexander out of the multitude, the Jews putting him forward. And Alexander beckoned with the hand, and would have made his defense to the people.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

19:35 And when the town-clerk had appeased the people, he said, You* men of Ephesus, what man is there that knows not that the city of the Ephesians is a worshiper of the great elohimdess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Jupiter?

X Acts

19:36 Seeing then that these things cannot be contradicted, you* ought to be quiet, and to do nothing rashly.

X Acts

19:37 For you* have brought here these men, who are neither robbers of assemblies, nor yet blasphemers of your* elohimdess.

X Acts

19:38 Therefore, if Demetrius and the artificers who are with him, have a matter against any man, the law is open, and there are deputies: let them implead one another.

X Acts

19:39 But if you* inquire any thing concerning other matters, it shall be determined in a lawful assembly.

X Acts

19:40 For we are in danger to be called in question for this day's uproar, there being no cause by which we may give an account of this concourse.

X Acts

19:41 And when he had thus spoken, he dismissed the assembly.

X Acts

20:1 And after the uproar had ceased, Paul called to him the disciples, and embraced them, and departed to go into Macedonia.

X Acts

20:2 And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them much exhortation, he came into Greece,

X Acts

20:3 And there abode three months. And when the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into Syria, he purposed to return through Macedonia.

X Acts

20:4 And there accompanied him into Asia Sopater of Berea; and of the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus; and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy; and of Asia, Tychicus, and Trophimus.

X Acts

20:5 These going before, stayed for us at Troas.

X Acts

20:6 And we sailed away from Philippi, after the days of unleavened bread, and came to them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.

X Acts

20:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached to them (ready to depart on to-morrow) and continued his speech until midnight.

X Acts

20:8 And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were assembled.

X Acts

20:9 And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, having fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell from the third loft, and was taken up dead.

X Acts

20:10 And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him, said, Trouble not yourselves*; for his life is in him.

X Acts

20:11 When he had come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and discoursed a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.

X Acts

20:12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.

X Acts

20:13 And we went before to a ship, and sailed to Assos, there intending to take in Paul: for so he had appointed, intending himself to go on foot.

X Acts

20:14 And when he met with us at Assos, we took him in, and came to Mitylene.

X Acts

20:15 And we sailed that place, and came the next day over against Chios; and the next day we arrived at Samos, and stayed at Trogyllium; and the next day we came to Miletus.

X Acts

20:16 For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hurried, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost.

X Acts

20:17 And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders of the assembly.

X Acts

20:18 And when they had come to him, he said to them, You* know, from the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you* at all seasons,

X Acts

20:19 Serving YASHUWAH with all humility of mind, and with many tears and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:

X Acts

20:20 And how I kept back nothing that was profitable to you*, but have shown you*, and have taught you* publicly, and from house to house,

X Acts

20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance towards Elohim, and faith towards our Master YASHUWAH the Messiah.

X Acts

20:22 And now behold, I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there:

X Acts

20:23 Save that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying, that bonds and afflictions abide me.

X Acts

20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my course with joy, and the ministry which I have received from the Master YASHUWAH, to testify the gospel of the grace of Elohim.

X Acts

20:25 And now behold, I know that you* all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of Elohim, will see my face no more.

X Acts

20:26 Therefore I call you* to witness this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.

X Acts

20:27 For I have not shunned to declare to you* all the counsel of Elohim.

X Acts

20:28 Take heed therefore to yourselves*, and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has made you* overseers, to feed the assembly of Elohim, which he has purchased with his own blood.

X Acts

20:29 For I know this, that after my departure grievous wolves will enter in among you*, not sparing the flock.

X Acts

20:30 Also from your* own selves will men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

20:32 And now, brethren, I commend you* to Elohim, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you* up, and to give you* an inheritance among all them who are sanctified.

X Acts

20:33 I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel.

X Acts

20:34 And you* yourselves* know, that these hands have ministered to my necessities, and to them that were with me.

X Acts

20:35 I have shown you* all things, that so laboring you* ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Master YASHUWAH, that he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

X Acts

20:36 And when he had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all.

X Acts

20:37 And they all wept bitterly, and fell on Paul's neck, and kissed him,

X Acts

20:38 Sorrowing most of all for the words which he spoke, that they should see his face no more. And they accompanied him to the ship.

X Acts

21:1 And it came to pass, that after we were separated from them, and had lanched, we came with a straight course to Coos, and the day following to Rhodes, and from that place to Patara:

X Acts

21:2 And finding a ship sailing over to Phenicia, we went aboard, and set forth.

X Acts

21:3 Now when we had discovered Cyprus, we left it on the left hand, and sailed into Syria, and landed at Tyre: for there the ship was to unlade her burden.

X Acts

21:4 And finding disciples, we stayed there seven days: who said to Paul through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem.

X Acts

21:5 And when we had accomplished those days, we departed, and proceeded on our way; and they all conducted us with wives and children, till we were out of the city; and we kneeled down on the shore, and prayed.

X Acts

21:6 And when we had taken our leave one of another, we took ship; and they returned home again.

X Acts

21:7 And when we had finished our course from Tyre, we came to Ptolemais, and saluted the brethren, and abode with them one day.

X Acts

21:8 And the next day we that were of Paul's company departed, and came to Cesarea; and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven; and abode with him.

X Acts

21:9 And the same man had four daughters, virgins, who prophesied.

X Acts

21:10 And as we stayed there many days, there came down from Judea a certain prophet, named Agabus.

X Acts

21:11 And when he had come to us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus says the Holy Spirit, So will the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and will deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.

X Acts

21:12 And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem.

X Acts

21:13 Then Paul answered, What mean you* to weep, and to break my heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Master YASHUWAH.

X Acts

21:14 And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of YASHUWAH be done.

X Acts

21:15 And after those days we took up our furniture, and went up to Jerusalem.

X Acts

21:16 There went with us also certain of the disciples of Cesarea, and brought with them one Mnason of Cyprus, an old disciple, with whom we should lodge.

X Acts

21:17 And when we had come to Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly.

X Acts

21:18 And the day following Paul went in with us to James: and all the elders were present.

X Acts

21:19 And when he had saluted them, he declared particularly what things Elohim had worked among the Gentiles by his ministry.

X Acts

21:20 And when they heard it, they glorified YASHUWAH, and said to him, You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are who believe; and they are all zealous of the law:

X Acts

21:21 And they are informed concerning you, that you teach all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, saying, That they ought not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs.

X Acts

21:22 What is it therefore? the multitude must needs come together: for they will hear that you are come.

X Acts

21:23 Do therefore this that we say to you: we have four men who have a vow on them;

X Acts

21:24 Take them, and purify yourself with them, and be at charges with them, that they may shave their heads: and all may know that those things of which they were informed concerning you, are nothing; but that you yourself also walk orderly, and keep the law.

X Acts

21:25 As concerning the Gentiles who 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.

X Acts

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 an offering should be offered for every one of them.

X Acts

21:27 And when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews who were from Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people, and laid hands on him,

X Acts

21:28 Crying out, Men of Israel, help. This is the man that teaches all men every where against the people, and the law, and this place: and further, has brought Greeks also into the temple; and has polluted this holy place.

X Acts

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.)

X Acts

21:30 And all the city was moved, and the people ran together: and they took Paul and drew him out of the temple. And immediately the doors were shut.

X Acts

21:31 And as they went about to kill him, the news came to the chief captain of the band, that all Jerusalem was in an uproar.

X Acts

21:32 Who immediately took soldiers and centurions, and ran down to them. And when they saw the chief captain and the soldiers, they left beating Paul.

X Acts

21:33 Then the chief captain came near and took him, and commanded him to be bound with two chains: and inquired who he was, and what he had done.

X Acts

21:34 And some cried one thing, some another, among the multitude: and when he could not know the certainty for the tumult, he commanded him to be carried into the castle.

X Acts

21:35 And when he came upon the stairs, so it was that he was borne by the soldiers, for the violence of the people.

X Acts

21:36 For the multitude of the people followed, crying, Away with him.

X Acts

21:37 And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said to the chief captain, May I speak to you? Who said, Can you speak Greek?

X Acts

21:38 Are not you that Egyptian, who before these days made an uproar, and led out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?

X Acts

21:39 But Paul said, I am a man who am a Jew of Tarsus, a city of Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and I ask you suffer me to speak to the people.

X Acts

21:40 And when he had given him license, Paul stood on the stairs, and beckoned with the hand to the people. And when there was made entire silence, he spoke to them in the Hebrew language, saying,

X Acts

22:1 Men, brethren, and fathers, hear you* my defense which I make now to you*.

X Acts

22:2 (And when they heard that he spoke to them in the Hebrew language, they kept the more silence: and he says,)

X Acts

22:3 I am truly a man who am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, being zealous towards Elohim, as you* all are this day.

X Acts

22:4 And I persecuted this way even to death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women.

X Acts

22:5 As also the high priest does bear me testimony, and all the estate of the elders; from whom also I received letters to the brethren, and went to Damascus, to bring them who were there bound to Jerusalem, to be punished.

X Acts

22:6 And it came to pass, that as I was passing on my journey, and had come near to Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light around me.

X Acts

22:7 And I fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to me, Saul, Saul, why persecute you me?

X Acts

22:8 And I answered, Who are you, Master? And he said to me, I am YASHUWAH of Nazareth, whom you persecute.

X Acts

22:9 And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spoke to me.

X Acts

22:10 And I said, What shall I do, Master? And the Master YASHUWAH said to me, Arise, and go into Damascus, and there it shall be told you concerning all things which are appointed for you to do.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

22:12 And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews who dwelt there,

X Acts

22:13 Came to me, and stood, and said to me, Brother Saul, receive your sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him.

X Acts

22:14 And he said, The Elohim of our fathers has chosen you, that you should know his will, and see that Just One, and should hear the voice of his mouth.

X Acts

22:15 For you shall be his witness to all men of what you have seen and heard.

X Acts

22:16 And now why stay you? arise, and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Master YASHUWAH.

X Acts

22:17 And it came to pass, that when I had come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance;

X Acts

22:18 And saw him saying to me, Make hurry, and depart quickly from Jerusalem; for they will not receive your testimony concerning me.

X Acts

22:19 And I said, Master, they know that I imprisoned, and beat in every synagogue them that believed on you:

X Acts

22:20 And when the blood of your martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by, and consenting to his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him.

X Acts

22:21 And he said to me, Depart: for I will send you far from here to the Gentiles.

X Acts

22:22 And they gave him audience to this word, and then lifted up their voices, and said, Away with such a man from the earth: for it is not fit that he should live.

X Acts

22:23 And as they cried out, and cast off their clothes, and threw dust into the air,

X Acts

22:24 The chief captain commanded him to be brought into the castle, and decided that he should be examined by scourging; that he might know for what cause they cried so against him.

X Acts

22:25 And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said to the centurion that stood by, Is it lawful for you* to scourge a man that is a Roman, and uncondemned?

X Acts

22:26 When the centurion heard that, he went and told the chief captain, saying, Take heed what you do; for this man is a Roman.

X Acts

22:27 Then the chief captain came, and said to him, Tell me, are you a Roman? He said, Yes.

X Acts

22:28 And the chief captain answered, With a great sum I obtained this freedom. And Paul said, But I was free born.

X Acts

22:29 Then immediately they departed from him who were about to examine him: and the chief captain also was afraid, after he knew that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him.

X Acts

22:30 On to-morrow, because he would have known the certainty why he was accused by the Jews, he loosed him from his bands, and commanded the chief priests and all their council to appear, and brought Paul down, and set him before them.

X Acts

23:1 And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men, brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before Elohim until this day.

X Acts

23:2 And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him, to strike him on the mouth.

X Acts

23:3 Then said Paul to him, Elohim shall smite you, you whited wall: for sit you to judge me according to the law, and command me to be smitten contrary to the law?

X Acts

23:4 And they that stood by, said, Revile you Elohim's high priest?

X Acts

23:5 Then said Paul, I knew not, brethren, that he is the high priest: for it is written, You shall not speak evil of the ruler of your people.

X Acts

23:6 But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men, brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: concerning the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.

X Acts

23:7 And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided.

X Acts

23:8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both.

X Acts

23:9 And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees' part arose, and contended, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel has spoken to him, let us not fight against Elohim.

X Acts

23:10 And when there arose a great dissension, the chief captain, fearing lest Paul would have been pulled in pieces by them, commanded the soldiers to go down, and to take him by force from among them, and to bring him into the castle.

X Acts

23:11 And the night following the Master stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as you have testified concerning me in Jerusalem, so must you bear testimony also at Rome.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

23:13 And they were more than forty who had made this conspiracy.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

23:15 Now therefore you* with the council signify to the chief captain, that he bring him down to you* to-morrow, as though you* would inquire something more perfectly concerning him: and we, before he shall come near, are ready to kill him.

X Acts

23:16 And when the son of Paul's sister heard of their lying in wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul.

X Acts

23:17 Then Paul called one of the centurions to him, and said, Bring this young man to the chief captain: for he has a certain thing to tell him.

X Acts

23:18 So he took him, and brought him to the chief captain, and said, Paul the prisoner called me to him, and prayed me to bring this young man to you, who has something to say to you.

X Acts

23:19 Then the chief captain took him by the hand, and went with him aside privately, and asked him, What is that you have to tell me?

X Acts

23:20 And he said, The Jews have agreed to desire you, that you would bring down Paul to-morrow into the council, as though they would inquire somewhat concerning him more perfectly.

X Acts

23:21 But do not you yield to them: for there are of them who lie in wait for him more than forty men, who have bound themselves with an oath, that they will neither eat nor drink till they have killed him: and now they are ready, looking for a promise from you.

X Acts

23:22 So the chief captain then let the young man depart, and charged him, See you tell no man that you have shown these things to me.

X Acts

23:23 And he called to him two centurions, saying, Make ready two hundred soldiers to go to Cesarea, and seventy horsemen, and spearmen two hundred, at the third hour of the night;

X Acts

23:24 And provide for them beasts, that they may set Paul on, and bring him safe to Felix the governor.

X Acts

23:25 And he wrote a letter after this manner:

X Acts

23:26 Claudius Lysias, to the most excellent governor Felix, sends greeting.

X Acts

23:27 This man was taken by the Jews, and would have been killed by them: then I came with a body of soldiers, and rescued him, having understood that he was a Roman.

X Acts

23:28 And when I would have known the cause for which they accused him, I brought him forth into their council:

X Acts

23:29 Whom I perceived to be accused of questions of their law, but to have nothing laid to his charge worthy of death, or of bonds.

X Acts

23:30 And when it was told to me that the Jews laid wait for the man, I sent immediately to you, and gave commandment to his accusers also, to say before you what they had against him. Farewell.

X Acts

23:31 Then the soldiers, as it was commanded them, took Paul, and brought him by night to Antipatris.

X Acts

23:32 On to-morrow they left the horsemen to go with him, and returned to the castle:

X Acts

23:33 Who, when they came to Cesarea, and delivered the epistle to the governor, presented Paul also before him.

X Acts

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,

X Acts

23:35 I will hear you, said he, when your accusers also have come. And he commanded him to be kept in Herod's judgment-hall.

X Acts

24:1 And after five days, Ananias the high priest descended with the elders, and with a certain orator named Tertullus, who informed the governor against Paul.

X Acts

24:2 And when he was called forth, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, Seeing that by you we enjoy great quietness, and that very worthy deeds are done to this nation by your providence,

X Acts

24:3 We accept it always, and in all places, most noble Felix, with all thankfulness.

X Acts

24:4 Although, that I may not be further tedious to you, I pray you, that you would of your clemency hear us a few words.

X Acts

24:5 For we have found this a pestilent man, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ring-leader of the sect of the Nazarenes:

X Acts

24:6 Who also has gone about to profane the temple: whom we took, and would have judged according to our law.

X Acts

24:7 But the chief captain Lysias came and with great violence took him out of our hands,

X Acts

24:8 Commanding his accusers to come to you: by examining whom, you yourself may take knowledge of all these things of which we accuse him.

X Acts

24:9 And the Jews also assented, saying, that these things were so.

X Acts

24:10 Then Paul, after the governor had beckoned to him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that you have been for many years a judge to this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself:

X Acts

24:11 That you may understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem to worship.

X Acts

24:12 And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither exciting the people to sedition, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:

X Acts

24:13 Neither can they prove the things of which they now accuse me.

X Acts

24:14 But this I confess to you, that after the way which they call heresy, so I worship the Elohim of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:

X Acts

24:15 And have hope towards Elohim, which they themselves also allow, that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

X Acts

24:16 And in this I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offense towards Elohim, and towards men.

X Acts

24:17 Now after many years, I came to bring alms to my nation, and offerings.

X Acts

24:18 Upon which certain Jews from Asia found me purified in the temple, neither with multitude, nor with tumult.

X Acts

24:19 Who ought to have been here before you, and object if they had aught against me.

X Acts

24:20 Or else let these same here say, if they have found any evil-doing in me, while I stood before the council,

X Acts

24:21 Except it is for this one voice, that I cried, standing among them, Concerning the resurrection of the dead I am called in question by you* this day.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

24:23 And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and to let him have freedom, and that he should forbid none of his acquaintance to minister, or come to him.

X Acts

24:24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, who was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in the Messiah.

X Acts

24:25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, depart for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for you.

X Acts

24:26 He hoped also that money would have been given him by Paul, that he might loose him: therefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.

X Acts

24:27 But after two years Porcius Festus came as successor to Felix: and Felix willing to show the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

X Acts

25:1 Now when Festus had come into the province, after three days he ascended from Cesarea to Jerusalem.

X Acts

25:2 Then the high priest and the chief of the Jews informed him against Paul, and besought him,

X Acts

25:3 And desired favor against him, that he would send for him to Jerusalem, laying wait in the way to kill him.

X Acts

25:4 But Festus answered, that Paul should be kept at Cesarea, and that he himself would depart shortly toward that place.

X Acts

25:5 Let them therefore, said he, who among you* are able, go down with me, and accuse this man, if there is any wickedness in him.

X Acts

25:6 And when he had stayed among them more than ten days, he went down to Cesarea; and the next day sitting on the judgment-seat, commanded Paul to be brought.

X Acts

25:7 And when he had come, the Jews who came down from Jerusalem stood around, and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which they could not prove;

X Acts

25:8 While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Cesar have I committed any offense.

X Acts

25:9 But Festus, willing to do the Jews a pleasure, answered Paul, and said, Will you go to Jerusalem, and there be judged concerning these things before me?

X Acts

25:10 Then said Paul, I stand at Cesar's tribunal, where I ought to be judged: to the Jews have I done no wrong, as you very well know.

X Acts

25:11 For if I am an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there is none of these things of which these accuse me, no man may deliver me to them. I appeal to Cesar.

X Acts

25:12 Then Festus, when he had conferred with the council, answered, Have you appealed to Cesar? to Cesar you shall go.

X Acts

25:13 And after certain days, king Agrippa and Bernice came to Cesarea, to greet Festus.

X Acts

25:14 And when they had been there many days, Festus declared Paul's cause to the king, saying, There is a certain man left in bonds by Felix:

X Acts

25:15 About whom, when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews informed me, desiring to have judgment against him.

X Acts

25:16 To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before he who is accused has the accusers face to face, and has license to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him.

X Acts

25:17 Therefore, when they had come here, without any delay on to-morrow I sat on the judgment-seat, and commanded the man to be brought forth;

X Acts

25:18 Against whom, when the accusers stood up, they brought no accusation of such things as I supposed:

X Acts

25:19 But had certain questions against him of their own superstition, and of one YASHUWAH who was dead, whom Paul affirmed to be alive.

X Acts

25:20 And because I doubted of such manner of questions, I asked him whether he would go to Jerusalem, and there be judged concerning these matters.

X Acts

25:21 But when Paul had appealed to be reserved to the hearing of Augustus, I commanded him to be kept till I might send him to Cesar.

X Acts

25:22 Then Agrippa said to Festus, I would also hear the man myself. To-morrow, said he, you shall hear him.

X Acts

25:23 And on to-morrow, when Agrippa had come, and Bernice, with great pomp, and had entered into the place of hearing, with the chief captains and principal men of the city, at the command of Festus Paul was brought forth.

X Acts

25:24 And Festus said, King Agrippa, and all men who are here present with us, you* 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.

X Acts

25:25 But when I found that he had committed nothing worthy of death, and that he himself has appealed to Augustus, I have determined to send him.

X Acts

25:26 Of whom I have no certain thing to write to my master. Therefore I have brought him forth before you*, and specially before you, O king Agrippa, that after examination had, I may have somewhat to write.

X Acts

25:27 For it seems to me unreasonable to send a prisoner, and not also to signify the crimes laid against him.

X Acts

26:1 Then Agrippa said to Paul, You are permitted to speak for yourself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself:

X Acts

26:2 I think myself blessed, king Agrippa, because I shall answer for myself this day before you, concerning all the things of which I am accused by the Jews:

X Acts

26:3 Especially, because I know you to be expert in all customs and questions which are among the Jews: therefore I ask you to hear me patiently.

X Acts

26:4 My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first among my own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Jews,

X Acts

26:5 Who knew me from the beginning, (if they would testify) that after the strictest sect of our religion, I lived a Pharisee.

X Acts

26:6 And now I stand, and am judged for the hope of the promise made by Elohim to our fathers:

X Acts

26:7 To which promise our twelve tribes, earnestly serving Elohim day and night, hope to come. For which hope's sake, king Agrippa, I am accused by the Jews.

X Acts

26:8 Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you*, that Elohim should raise the dead?

X Acts

26:9 I truly thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of YASHUWAH of Nazareth.

X Acts

26:10 Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them.

X Acts

26:11 And I punished them often in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly enraged against them, I persecuted them even to foreign cities.

X Acts

26:12 Upon which as I went to Damascus, with authority and commission from the chief priests,

X Acts

26:13 At mid-day, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, surpassing the brightness of the sun, shining around me, and them who journeyed with me.

X Acts

26:14 And when we had all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking to me, and saying in the Hebrew language, Saul, Saul, why persecute you me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.

X Acts

26:15 And I said, Who are you, Master? And he said, I am YASHUWAH whom you persecute.

X Acts

26:16 But rise, and stand upon your feet: for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen, and of the things in which I will appear to you;

X Acts

26:17 Delivering you from the people, and from the Gentiles, to whom now I send you,

X Acts

26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to Elohim, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them who are sanctified by faith that is in me.

X Acts

26:19 Upon which O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision.

X Acts

26:20 But showed first to them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the region of Judea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to Elohim, and do works suitable for repentance.

X Acts

26:21 For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me.

X Acts

26:22 Having therefore obtained help from Elohim, I continue to this day, testifying both to small and great, saying no other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:

X Acts

26:23 That the Messiah should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should show light to the people, and to the Gentiles.

X Acts

26:24 And as he was thus speaking for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, you are beside yourself; much learning does make you insane.

X Acts

26:25 But he said, I am not insane, most noble Festus; but speak forth the words of truth and good sense.

X Acts

26:26 For the king knows 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.

X Acts

26:27 King Agrippa, believe you the prophets? I know that you believe.

X Acts

26:28 Then Agrippa said to Paul, Almost you persuade me to be a Messianic.

X Acts

26:29 And Paul said, I would to Elohim, that not only you, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except these bonds.

X Acts

26:30 And when he had thus spoken, the king rose, and the governor, and Bernice, and they that sat with them:

X Acts

26:31 And when they had gone aside, they talked between themselves, saying, This man does nothing worthy of death, or of bonds.

X Acts

26:32 Then said Agrippa to Festus, This man might have been set free, if he had not appealed to Cesar.

X Acts

27:1 And when it was determined that we should sail into Italy, they delivered Paul and certain other prisoners to one named Julius, a centurion of Augustus' band.

X Acts

27:2 And entering into a ship of Adramyttium, we lanched, meaning to sail by the coasts of Asia, one Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, being with us.

X Acts

27:3 And the next day we touched at Sidon. And Julius courteously treated Paul, and gave him freedom to go to his friends to refresh himself.

X Acts

27:4 And when we had lanched from that place, we sailed under Cyprus, because the winds were contrary.

X Acts

27:5 And when we had sailed over the sea of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Mira, a city of Lycia.

X Acts

27:6 And there the centurion found a ship of Alexandria sailing into Italy; and he put us in it.

X Acts

27:7 And when we had sailed slowly many days, and scarce had come over against Cnidus, the wind not suffering us, we sailed under Crete, over against Salmone:

X Acts

27:8 And hardly passing it, came to a place which is called, The fair harbors; near to which was the city of Lasea.

X Acts

27:9 Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because the fast was now already past, Paul admonished them.

X Acts

27:10 And said to 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.

X Acts

27:11 Nevertheless, the centurion believed the master and the owner of the ship more than the things which were spoken by Paul.

X Acts

27:12 And because the harbor was not commodious to winter in, the greater part advised to depart that place also, if by any means they might attain to Phenice, and there to winter; which is a harbor of Crete, and lies towards the south-west and north-west.

X Acts

27:13 And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, loosing that place, they sailed close by Crete.

X Acts

27:14 But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon.

X Acts

27:15 And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up into the wind, we let her drive.

X Acts

27:16 And running under a certain island which is called Clauda, we had much work to come by the boat:

X Acts

27:17 Which when they had taken up, they used helps, undergirding the ship; and fearing lest they should fall into the quicksands, struck sail, and so were driven.

X Acts

27:18 And we being exceedingly tossed with a tempest, the next day they lightened the ship;

X Acts

27:19 And the third day we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

27:21 But after long abstinence, Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, you* should have listened to me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss.

X Acts

27:22 And now I exhort you* to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of life among you*, but of the ship.

X Acts

27:23 For there stood by me this night the angel of Elohim, whose I am, and whom I serve,

X Acts

27:24 Saying, Fear not, Paul; you must be brought before Cesar: and lo, Elohim has given you all them that sail with you.

X Acts

27:25 Therefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe Elohim, that it will be even as it was told to me.

X Acts

27:26 But we must be cast upon a certain island.

X Acts

27:27 When the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adria, about midnight the shipmen suspected that they drew near to some country:

X Acts

27:28 And sounded, and found it twenty fathoms: and when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, and found it fifteen fathoms.

X Acts

27:29 Then fearing lest we should fall upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day.

X Acts

27:30 And as the shipmen were about to flee out of the ship, when they had let down the boat into the sea, under color as though they would cast anchors out of the foreship,

X Acts

27:31 Paul said to the centurion, and to the soldiers, Except these abide in the ship, you* cannot be saved.

X Acts

27:32 Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat, and let her fall off.

X Acts

27:33 And while the day was coming on, Paul besought them all to take food, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that you* have stayed, and continued fasting, having taken nothing.

X Acts

27:34 Therefore I pray you* to take some food; for this is for your* health: for there shall not a hair fall from the head of any of you*.

X Acts

27:35 And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to Elohim in presence of them all; and when he had broken it, he began to eat.

X Acts

27:36 Then they were all of good cheer, and they also took food.

X Acts

27:37 And we were in all in the ship two hundred and seventy six souls.

X Acts

27:38 And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, and cast the wheat into the sea.

X Acts

27:39 And when it was day, they knew not the land: but they discovered a certain creek with a shore, into which they purposed, if it were possible, to thrust in the ship.

X Acts

27:40 And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves to the sea, and loosed the rudder bands, and hoisted the mainsail to the wind, and made towards the shore.

X Acts

27:41 And falling into a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the forepart stuck fast, and remained immovable, but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the waves.

X Acts

27:42 And the soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out, and escape.

X Acts

27:43 But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose, and commanded that they who could swim, should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land:

X Acts

27:44 And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship: And so it came to pass, that they all escaped safe to land.

X Acts

28:1 And when they had escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.

X Acts

28:2 And the barbarous people showed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.

X Acts

28:3 And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.

X Acts

28:4 And when the barbarians saw the animal hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he has escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffers not to live.

X Acts

28:5 And he shook off the animal into the fire, and felt no harm.

X Acts

28:6 Yet they looked when he would have swelled, 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 elohim.

X Acts

28:7 In the same quarters were possessions of the chief man of the island, whose name was Publius; who received us, and lodged us three days courteously.

X Acts

28:8 And it came to pass that the father of Publius lay sick with a fever, and a bloody-flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him.

X Acts

28:9 So when this was done, others also who had diseases in the island, came, and were healed:

X Acts

28:10 Who also honored us with many honors; and when we departed, they laded us with such things as were necessary.

X Acts

28:11 And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the island, whose sign was Castor and Pollux.

X Acts

28:12 And landing at Syracuse, we stayed there three days.

X Acts

28:13 And from that place we made a circuit, and came to Rhegium: and after one day the south wind blew, and we came the next day to Puteoli:

X Acts

28:14 Where we found brethren, and were desired to stay with them seven days: and so we went towards Rome.

X Acts

28:15 And from that place when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as Appii-forum, and the Three taverns: whom when Paul saw, he thanked Elohim, and took courage.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

28:17 And it came to pass, that after three days, Paul called together the chief of the Jews. And when they were assembled, he said to them, Men, brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people, or customs of our fathers, yet I was delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans.

X Acts

28:18 Who when they had examined me, would have let me go, because there was no cause of death in me.

X Acts

28:19 But when the Jews spoke against it, I was constrained to appeal to Cesar; not that I had aught to accuse my nation of.

X Acts

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.

X Acts

28:21 And they said to him, We have neither received letters from Judea concerning you, neither have any of the brethren that came shown or spoken any harm of you.

X Acts

28:22 But we desire to hear from you, what you think: for as concerning this sect, we know that every where it is spoken against.

X Acts

28:23 And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of Elohim, persuading them concerning YASHUWAH, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.

X Acts

28:24 And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.

X Acts

28:25 And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after Paul had spoken one word, Well spoke the Holy Spirit by Isaiah the prophet to our fathers,

X Acts

28:26 Saying, Go to this people, and say, Hearing you* shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing you* shall see, and not perceive.

X Acts

28:27 For the heart of this people is become gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

X Acts

28:28 Be it known therefore to you*, that the salvation of Elohim is sent to the Gentiles, and they will hear it.

X Acts

28:29 And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.

X Acts

28:30 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own rented house, and received all that came in to him,

X Acts

28:31 Preaching the kingdom of Elohim, and teaching those things which concern the Master YASHUWAH the Messiah, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.
