The Conversion of Lydia at Philippi

11 So putting out to sea from Troas, we sailed a straight course to Samothrace, and on the following [day] to Neapolis, 12 and from there to Philippi, which is a leading city [of that] district of Macedonia, a [Roman] colony. And we were staying in this city for some days. 13 And on the day of the Sabbath, we went outside the [city] gate beside the river, where we thought there was a place of prayer, and we sat down [and]a spoke to the women assembled [there]. 14 And a certain woman {named}b Lydia from the city of Thyatira, a merchant dealing in purple cloth who showed reverence for God, was listening. The Lord opened {her}c heart to pay attention to what was being said by Paul. 15 And after she was baptized, and her household, she urged [us],d saying, "If you consider me to be a believer in the Lord, come to my house [and]e stay." And she prevailed upon us.
