1 After these things Paul went out of Athens, and came to Corinth. 1 After this, Paul left Athens and went to Corinth.
2 And he found a man, a Jew, Aquila by name, of Pontus by kind, that late came from Italy, and Priscilla, his wife, for that Claudius commanded all Jews to depart from Rome; and he came to them. 2 There he met a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had ordered all the Jews to leave Rome. Paul went to see them,
3 And for that he was of the same craft, he dwelled with them, and wrought; and they were of ropemakers craft [soothly they were of tentmakers craft, that is, to make coverings to traveling men]. 3 and because he was a tentmaker as they were, he stayed and worked with them.
4 And he disputed in the synagogue by each sabbath, putting among the name of the Lord Jesus; and he [softly] counseled Jews and Greeks. 4 Every Sabbath he reasoned in the synagogue, trying to persuade Jews and Greeks.
5 And when Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul gave busyness to the word, and witnessed to the Jews, that Jesus is Christ. 5 When Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul devoted himself exclusively to preaching, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ.
6 But when they gainsaid and blasphemed, he shook away his clothes [Forsooth when they against-said and blasphemed, he shook off his clothes], and said to them, Your blood be on your head; I shall be clean from henceforth, and I shall go to heathen men [I clean from henceforth, shall go to heathen men]. 6 But when the Jews opposed Paul and became abusive, he shook out his clothes in protest and said to them, "Your blood be on your own heads! I am clear of my responsibility. From now on I will go to the Gentiles."
7 And he passed from thence, and entered into the house of a just man, Titus by name [by name Titus], that worshipped God, whose house was joined to the synagogue. 7 Then Paul left the synagogue and went next door to the house of Titius Justus, a worshiper of God.
8 And Crispus, prince of the synagogue, believed to the Lord, with all his house. And many of the Corinthians heard, and believed [And many of the Corinthians hearing believed], and were christened. 8 Crispus, the synagogue ruler, and his entire household believed in the Lord; and many of the Corinthians who heard him believed and were baptized.
9 And the Lord said by night to Paul by a vision, Do not thou dread, but speak, and be not still; 9 One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: "Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent.
10 for I am with thee, and no man shall be put to thee to harm thee, for much people is to me in this city. 10 For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city."
11 And he dwelled there a year and six months, teaching among them the word of God. 11 So Paul stayed for a year and a half, teaching them the word of God.
12 But when Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, [the] Jews rose up [rised up] with one will against Paul, and led him to the doom, 12 While Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews made a united attack on Paul and brought him into court.
13 and said [saying], Against the law this counseleth men to worship God. 13 "This man," they charged, "is persuading the people to worship God in ways contrary to the law."
14 And when Paul began to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, If there were any wicked thing, either evil trespass, ye Jews, rightly I should suffer you; [+Soothly when Paul began to open the mouth, Gallio said to Jews, Forsooth, if there were any wicked thing, or worst trespass, ye men Jews, rightly I should sustain you;] 14 Just as Paul was about to speak, Gallio said to the Jews, "If you Jews were making a complaint about some misdemeanor or serious crime, it would be reasonable for me to listen to you.
15 but if questions be of the word, and of names of your law, busy yourselves [ye yourselves see]; I will not be doomsman of these things. 15 But since it involves questions about words and names and your own law--settle the matter yourselves. I will not be a judge of such things."
16 And he drove them from the doom place. 16 So he had them ejected from the court.
17 And all took Sosthenes, prince of the synagogue, and smote him before the doom place; and nothing of these was to care to Gallio [and nothing of these was to charge to Gallio]. 17 Then they all turned on Sosthenes the synagogue ruler and beat him in front of the court. But Gallio showed no concern whatever.
18 And when Paul had abided many days, he said farewell to brethren, and by boat came to Syria. And Priscilla and Aquila came with him [saying farewell to brethren, by boat came to Syria, and with him, Priscilla and Aquila], which had clipped his head in Cenchrea; for he had a vow. 18 Paul stayed on in Corinth for some time. Then he left the brothers and sailed for Syria, accompanied by Priscilla and Aquila. Before he sailed, he had his hair cut off at Cenchrea because of a vow he had taken.
19 And he came to Ephesus, and there he left them; and he went into the synagogue, and disputed with Jews. 19 They arrived at Ephesus, where Paul left Priscilla and Aquila. He himself went into the synagogue and reasoned with the Jews.
20 And when they prayed, that he should dwell more time, he consented not, 20 When they asked him to spend more time with them, he declined.
21 but he made farewell to brethren, and said [and saying], [It behooveth me to make the solemn day coming at Jerusalem, and] again I shall turn again to you, if God will [God willing]; and he went forth from Ephesus. 21 But as he left, he promised, "I will come back if it is God's will." Then he set sail from Ephesus.
22 And he came down to Caesarea, and he went up [and ascended up], and greeted the church, and came down to Antioch. 22 When he landed at Caesarea, he went up and greeted the church and then went down to Antioch.
23 And when he had dwelled there somewhat of time, he went forth, walking by row [walking by order] through the country of Galatia, and Phrygia, and confirmed all the disciples [confirming all the disciples]. 23 After spending some time in Antioch, Paul set out from there and traveled from place to place throughout the region of Galatia and Phrygia, strengthening all the disciples.
24 But a Jew, Apollos by name, a man of Alexandria of kind, a man eloquent, came to Ephesus; and he was mighty in scriptures. [Soothly some Jew, Apollos by name, a man of Alexandria of kind, a man eloquent, came to Ephesus, mighty in scriptures.] 24 Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures.
25 This man was taught the way of the Lord, and was fervent in spirit, and spake, and taught diligently those things that were of Jesus, and knew only the baptism of John [knowing only the baptism of John]. 25 He had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor and taught about Jesus accurately, though he knew only the baptism of John.
26 And this man began to do trustily in the synagogue. Whom when Priscilla and Aquila heard, they took him [to], and more diligently expounded to him the way of the Lord. 26 He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they invited him to their home and explained to him the way of God more adequately.
27 And when he would go to Achaia, brethren excited [Soothly when he would go to Achaia, brethren admonished, or counseled], and wrote to the disciples, that they should receive him; which when he came, gave much to them that believed. 27 When Apollos wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him. On arriving, he was a great help to those who by grace had believed.
28 For he greatly overcame Jews, and showed openly by scriptures [showing openly by scriptures], that Jesus is Christ. 28 For he vigorously refuted the Jews in public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.
