RSV 11 Setting sail therefore from Tro'as, we made a direct voyage to Sam'othrace, and the following day to Ne-ap'olis, NIV 11 From Troas we put out to sea and sailed straight for Samothrace, and the next day on to Neapolis. RSV 12 and from there to Philip'pi, which is the leading city of the district of Macedo'nia, and a Roman colony. We remained in this city some days; NIV 12 From there we traveled to Philippi, a Roman colony and the leading city of that district of Macedonia. And we stayed there several days. RSV 13 and on the sabbath day we went outside the gate to the riverside, where we supposed there was a place of prayer; and we sat down and spoke to the women who had come together.

She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. RSV 17 She followed Paul and us, crying, "These men are servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to you the way of salvation."
