Acts 19

HNV 1 It happened that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Sha'ul, having passed through the upper country, came to Ephesus, and found certain talmidim. NIV 1 While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples HNV 2 He said to them, "Did you receive the Ruach HaKodesh when you believed?" They said to him, "No, we haven't even heard that there is a Ruach HaKodesh." NIV 2 and asked them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?" They answered, "No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit." HNV 3 He said, "Into what then were you immersed?" They said, "Into Yochanan's immersion." NIV 3 So Paul asked, "Then what baptism did you receive?" "John's baptism," they replied. HNV 4 Sha'ul said, "Yochanan indeed immersed with the immersion of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe in the one who would come after him, that is, on Yeshua." NIV 4 Paul said, "John's baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus." HNV 5 When they heard this, they were immersed into the name of the Lord Yeshua. NIV 5 On hearing this, they were baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus. HNV 6 When Sha'ul had laid his hands on them, the Ruach HaKodesh came on them, and they spoke with other languages, and prophesied. NIV 6 When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied. HNV 7 They were about twelve men in all. NIV 7 There were about twelve men in all. HNV 8 He entered into the synagogue, and spoke boldly for a period of three months, reasoning and persuading about the things concerning the kingdom of God. NIV 8 Paul entered the synagogue and spoke boldly there for three months, arguing persuasively about the kingdom of God. HNV 9 But when some were hardened and disobedient, speaking evil of the Way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the talmidim, reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus. NIV 9 But some of them became obstinate; they refused to believe and publicly maligned the Way. So Paul left them. He took the disciples with him and had discussions daily in the lecture hall of Tyrannus. HNV 10 This continued for two years, so that all those who lived in Asia heard the word of the Lord Yeshua, both Yehudim and Yevanim. NIV 10 This went on for two years, so that all the Jews and Greeks who lived in the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord. HNV 11 God worked special miracles by the hands of Sha'ul, NIV 11 God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, HNV 12 so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were carried away from his body to the sick, and the evil spirits went out. NIV 12 so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them. HNV 13 But some of the itinerant Yehudim, exorcists, took on themselves to name over those who had the evil spirits the name of the Lord Yeshua, saying, "We adjure you by Yeshua whom Sha'ul preaches." NIV 13 Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, "In the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out." HNV 14 There were seven sons of one Skeva, a Yehudi chief Kohen, who did this. NIV 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. HNV 15 The evil spirit answered, "Yeshua I know, and Sha'ul I know, but who are you?" NIV 15 [One day] the evil spirit answered them, "Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you?" HNV 16 The man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. NIV 16 Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding. HNV 17 This became known to all, both Yehudim and Yevanim, who lived at Ephesus. Fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Yeshua was magnified. NIV 17 When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor. HNV 18 Many also of those who had believed came, confessing, and declaring their deeds. NIV 18 Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed their evil deeds. HNV 19 Many of those who practiced magical arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. They counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. NIV 19 A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas. HNV 20 So the word of the Lord was growing and becoming mighty. NIV 20 In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power. HNV 21 Now after these things had ended, Sha'ul determined in the spirit, when he had passed through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Yerushalayim, saying, "After I have been there, I must also see Rome." NIV 21 After all this had happened, Paul decided to go to Jerusalem, passing through Macedonia and Achaia. "After I have been there," he said, "I must visit Rome also." HNV 22 Having sent into Macedonia two of those who ministered to him, Timothy and Erastus, he himself stayed in Asia for a while. NIV 22 He sent two of his helpers, Timothy and Erastus, to Macedonia, while he stayed in the province of Asia a little longer. HNV 23 About that time there arose no small stir concerning the Way. NIV 23 About that time there arose a great disturbance about the Way. HNV 24 For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, who made silver shrines of Artemis, brought no little business to the craftsmen, NIV 24 A silversmith named Demetrius, who made silver shrines of Artemis, brought in no little business for the craftsmen. HNV 25 whom he gathered together, with the workmen of like occupation, and said, "Sirs, you know that by this business we have our wealth. NIV 25 He called them together, along with the workmen in related trades, and said: "Men, you know we receive a good income from this business. HNV 26 You see and hear, that not at Ephesus alone, but almost throughout all Asia, this Sha'ul has persuaded and turned away many people, saying that they are no gods, that are made with hands. NIV 26 And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that man-made gods are no gods at all. HNV 27 Not only is there danger that this our trade come into disrepute, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be counted as nothing, and her majesty destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worships." NIV 27 There is danger not only that our trade will lose its good name, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be discredited, and the goddess herself, who is worshiped throughout the province of Asia and the world, will be robbed of her divine majesty." HNV 28 When they heard this they were filled with anger, and cried out, saying, "Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!" NIV 28 When they heard this, they were furious and began shouting: "Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!" HNV 29 The whole city was filled with confusion, and they rushed with one accord into the theater, having seized Gaius and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, Sha'ul's companions in travel. NIV 29 Soon the whole city was in an uproar. The people seized Gaius and Aristarchus, Paul's traveling companions from Macedonia, and rushed as one man into the theater. HNV 30 When Sha'ul wanted to enter in to the people, the talmidim didn't allow him. NIV 30 Paul wanted to appear before the crowd, but the disciples would not let him. HNV 31 Certain also of the Asiarchs, being his friends, sent to him and begged him not to venture into the theater. NIV 31 Even some of the officials of the province, friends of Paul, sent him a message begging him not to venture into the theater. HNV 32 Some therefore cried one thing, and some another, for the assembly was in confusion. Most of them didn't know why they had come together. NIV 32 The assembly was in confusion: Some were shouting one thing, some another. Most of the people did not even know why they were there. HNV 33 They brought Alexander out of the multitude, the Yehudim putting him forward. Alexander beckoned with his hand, and would have made a defense to the people. NIV 33 The Jews pushed Alexander to the front, and some of the crowd shouted instructions to him. He motioned for silence in order to make a defense before the people. HNV 34 But when they perceived that he was a Yehudi, all with one voice for a time of about two hours cried out, "Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!" NIV 34 But when they realized he was a Jew, they all shouted in unison for about two hours: "Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!" HNV 35 When the town clerk had quieted the multitude, he said, "You men of Ephesus, what man is there who doesn't know that the city of the Ephesians is temple-keeper of the great goddess Artemis, and of the image which fell down from Zeus? NIV 35 The city clerk quieted the crowd and said: "Men of Ephesus, doesn't all the world know that the city of Ephesus is the guardian of the temple of the great Artemis and of her image, which fell from heaven? HNV 36 Seeing then that these things can't be denied, you ought to be quiet, and to do nothing rash. NIV 36 Therefore, since these facts are undeniable, you ought to be quiet and not do anything rash. HNV 37 For you have brought these men here, who are neither robbers of temples nor blasphemers of your goddess. NIV 37 You have brought these men here, though they have neither robbed temples nor blasphemed our goddess. HNV 38 If therefore Demetrius and the craftsmen who are with him have a matter against anyone, the courts are open, and there are proconsuls. Let them press charges against one another. NIV 38 If, then, Demetrius and his fellow craftsmen have a grievance against anybody, the courts are open and there are proconsuls. They can press charges. HNV 39 But if you seek anything about other matters, it will be settled in the regular assembly. NIV 39 If there is anything further you want to bring up, it must be settled in a legal assembly. HNV 40 For indeed we are in danger of being accused concerning this day's riot, there being no cause. Concerning it, we wouldn't be able to give an account of this commotion." NIV 40 As it is, we are in danger of being charged with rioting because of today's events. In that case we would not be able to account for this commotion, since there is no reason for it." HNV 41 When he had thus spoken, he dismissed the assembly. NIV 41 After he had said this, he dismissed the assembly.
