After these things he left 1Athens and went to 2Corinth.
And he found a Jew named 3Aquila, a native of 4Pontus, having recently come from 5Italy with his wife 6Priscilla, because 7Claudius had commanded all the Jews to leave Rome. He came to them,
and because he was of the same trade, he stayed with them and 8they were working, for by trade they were tent-makers.
And he was reasoning 9in the synagogue every 10Sabbath and trying to persuade 11Jews and Greeks.
But when 12Silas and Timothy 13came down from 14Macedonia, Paul began devoting himself completely to the word, solemnly 15testifying to the Jews that 16Jesus was the Christ.
But when they resisted and blasphemed, he 17shook out his garments and said to them, "Your 18blood be on your own heads! I am clean. From now on I will go 19to the Gentiles."
Then he left there and went to the house of a man named Titius Justus, 20a worshiper of God, whose house was next to the synagogue.
21Crispus, 22the leader of the synagogue, believed in the Lord 23with all his household, and many of the 24Corinthians when they heard were believing and being baptized.
And the Lord said to Paul in the night by 25a vision, "Do not be afraid any longer, but go on speaking and do not be silent;
for I am with you, and no man will attack you in order to harm you, for I have many people in this city."
And he settled there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
