Acts 17:10-20

RSV 10 The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Beroe'a; and when they arrived they went into the Jewish synagogue. NIV 10 As soon as it was night, the brothers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue. RSV 11 Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessaloni'ca, for they received the word with all eagerness, examining the scriptures daily to see if these things were so. NIV 11 Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. RSV 12 Many of them therefore believed, with not a few Greek women of high standing as well as men. NIV 12 Many of the Jews believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men. RSV 13 But when the Jews of Thessaloni'ca learned that the word of God was proclaimed by Paul at Beroe'a also, they came there too, stirring up and inciting the crowds. NIV 13 When the Jews in Thessalonica learned that Paul was preaching the word of God at Berea, they went there too, agitating the crowds and stirring them up. RSV 14 Then the brethren immediately sent Paul off on his way to the sea, but Silas and Timothy remained there. NIV 14 The brothers immediately sent Paul to the coast, but Silas and Timothy stayed at Berea. RSV 15 Those who conducted Paul brought him as far as Athens; and receiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they departed. NIV 15 The men who escorted Paul brought him to Athens and then left with instructions for Silas and Timothy to join him as soon as possible. RSV 16 Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was provoked within him as he saw that the city was full of idols. NIV 16 While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was greatly distressed to see that the city was full of idols. RSV 17 So he argued in the synagogue with the Jews and the devout persons, and in the market place every day with those who chanced to be there. NIV 17 So he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing Greeks, as well as in the marketplace day by day with those who happened to be there. RSV 18 Some also of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers met him. And some said, "What would this babbler say?" Others said, "He seems to be a preacher of foreign divinities" --because he preached Jesus and the resurrection. NIV 18 A group of Epicurean and Stoic philosophers began to dispute with him. Some of them asked, "What is this babbler trying to say?" Others remarked, "He seems to be advocating foreign gods." They said this because Paul was preaching the good news about Jesus and the resurrection. RSV 19 And they took hold of him and brought him to the Are-op'agus, saying, "May we know what this new teaching is which you present? NIV 19 Then they took him and brought him to a meeting of the Areopagus, where they said to him, "May we know what this new teaching is that you are presenting? RSV 20 For you bring some strange things to our ears; we wish to know therefore what these things mean." NIV 20 You are bringing some strange ideas to our ears, and we want to know what they mean."
