DBY 1 And after these things, having left Athens, he came to Corinth; NIV 1 After this, Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. DBY 2 and finding a certain Jew by name Aquila, of Pontus by race, just come from Italy, and Priscilla his wife, (because Claudius had ordered all the Jews to leave Rome,) came to them, NIV 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, DBY 3 and because they were of the same trade abode with them, and wrought. For they were tent-makers by trade. NIV 3 and because he was a tentmaker as they were, he stayed and worked with them. DBY 4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded Jews and Greeks. NIV 4 Every Sabbath he reasoned in the synagogue, trying to persuade Jews and Greeks. DBY 5 And when both Silas and Timotheus came down from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in respect of the word, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ. NIV 5 When Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul devoted himself exclusively to preaching, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ. DBY 6 But as they opposed and spoke injuriously, he shook his clothes, and said to them, Your blood be upon your own head: *I* [am] pure; from henceforth I will go to the nations. NIV 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." DBY 7 And departing thence he came to the house of a certain [man], by name Justus, who worshipped God, whose house adjoined the synagogue. NIV 7 Then Paul left the synagogue and went next door to the house of Titius Justus, a worshiper of God. DBY 8 But Crispus the ruler of the synagogue believed in the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing, believed, and were baptised. NIV 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. DBY 9 And the Lord said by vision in [the] night to Paul, Fear not, but speak and be not silent; NIV 9 One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: "Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. DBY 10 because *I* am with thee, and no one shall set upon thee to injure thee; because I have much people in this city. NIV 10 For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city." DBY 11 And he remained [there] a year and six months, teaching among them the word of God. NIV 11 So Paul stayed for a year and a half, teaching them the word of God. DBY 12 But when Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews with one consent rose against Paul and led him to the judgment-seat, NIV 12 While Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews made a united attack on Paul and brought him into court. DBY 13 saying, This [man] persuades men to worship God contrary to the law. NIV 13 "This man," they charged, "is persuading the people to worship God in ways contrary to the law." DBY 14 But as Paul was going to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, If indeed it was some wrong or wicked criminality, O Jews, of reason I should have borne with you; NIV 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. DBY 15 but if it be questions about words, and names, and the law that ye have, see to it yourselves; [for] *I* do not intend to be judge of these things. NIV 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." DBY 16 And he drove them from the judgment-seat. NIV 16 So he had them ejected from the court. DBY 17 And having all laid hold on Sosthenes the ruler of the synagogue, they beat him before the judgment-seat. And Gallio troubled himself about none of these things. NIV 17 Then they all turned on Sosthenes the synagogue ruler and beat him in front of the court. But Gallio showed no concern whatever. DBY 18 And Paul, having yet stayed [there] many days, took leave of the brethren and sailed thence to Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila, having shorn his head in Cenchrea, for he had a vow; NIV 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. DBY 19 and he arrived at Ephesus, and left them there. But entering himself into the synagogue he reasoned with the Jews. NIV 19 They arrived at Ephesus, where Paul left Priscilla and Aquila. He himself went into the synagogue and reasoned with the Jews. DBY 20 And when they asked him that he would remain for a longer time [with them] he did not accede, NIV 20 When they asked him to spend more time with them, he declined. DBY 21 but bade them farewell, saying, [I must by all means keep the coming feast at Jerusalem]; I will return to you again, if God will: and he sailed away from Ephesus. NIV 21 But as he left, he promised, "I will come back if it is God's will." Then he set sail from Ephesus. DBY 22 And landing at Caesarea, and having gone up and saluted the assembly, he went down to Antioch. NIV 22 When he landed at Caesarea, he went up and greeted the church and then went down to Antioch. DBY 23 And having stayed [there] some time, he went forth, passing in order through the country of Galatia and Phrygia, establishing all the disciples. NIV 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. DBY 24 But a certain Jew, Apollos by name, an Alexandrian by race, an eloquent man, who was mighty in the scriptures, arrived at Ephesus. NIV 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. DBY 25 He was instructed in the way of the Lord, and being fervent in his spirit, he spoke and taught exactly the things concerning Jesus, knowing only the baptism of John. NIV 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. DBY 26 And *he* began to speak boldly in the synagogue. And Aquila and Priscilla, having heard him, took him to [them] and unfolded to him the way of God more exactly. NIV 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. DBY 27 And when he purposed to go into Achaia, the brethren wrote to the disciples engaging them to receive him, who, being come, contributed much to those who believed through grace. NIV 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. DBY 28 For he with great force convinced the Jews publicly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was the Christ. NIV 28 For he vigorously refuted the Jews in public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.
