King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. 1 And Saul was there, giving approval to his death. On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria.
2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. 2 Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him.
3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison. 3 But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off men and women and put them in prison.
4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word. 4 Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.
