Acts 7

RHE 1 Then the high priest said: Are these things so? NIV 1 Then the high priest asked him, "Are these charges true?" RHE 2 Who said: Ye men, brethren and fathers, hear. The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charan. NIV 2 To this he replied: "Brothers and fathers, listen to me! The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham while he was still in Mesopotamia, before he lived in Haran. RHE 3 And said to him: Go forth out of thy country and from thy kindred: and come into the land which I shall shew thee. NIV 3 'Leave your country and your people,' God said, 'and go to the land I will show you.' RHE 4 Then he went out of the land of the Chaldeans and dwelt in Charan. And from thence, after his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein you now dwell. NIV 4 "So he left the land of the Chaldeans and settled in Haran. After the death of his father, God sent him to this land where you are now living. RHE 5 And he gave him no inheritance in it: no, not the pace of a foot. But he promised to give it him in possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child. NIV 5 He gave him no inheritance here, not even a foot of ground. But God promised him that he and his descendants after him would possess the land, even though at that time Abraham had no child. RHE 6 And God said to him: That his seed should sojourn in a strange country, and that they should bring them under bondage and treat them evil four hundred years. NIV 6 God spoke to him in this way: 'Your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated four hundred years. RHE 7 And the nation which they shall serve will I judge (said the Lord): and after these things they shall go out and shall serve me in this place. NIV 7 But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves,' God said, 'and afterward they will come out of that country and worship me in this place.' RHE 8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision. And so he begot Isaac and circumcised him the eighth day: and Isaac begot Jacob: and Jacob, the twelve patriarchs. NIV 8 Then he gave Abraham the covenant of circumcision. And Abraham became the father of Isaac and circumcised him eight days after his birth. Later Isaac became the father of Jacob, and Jacob became the father of the twelve patriarchs. RHE 9 And the patriarchs, through envy, sold Joseph into Egypt. And God was with him, NIV 9 "Because the patriarchs were jealous of Joseph, they sold him as a slave into Egypt. But God was with him RHE 10 And delivered him out of all his tribulations: and he gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharao, the king of Egypt. And he appointed him governor over Egypt and over all his house. NIV 10 and rescued him from all his troubles. He gave Joseph wisdom and enabled him to gain the goodwill of Pharaoh king of Egypt; so he made him ruler over Egypt and all his palace. RHE 11 Now there came a famine upon all Egypt and Chanaan, and great tribulation: and our fathers found no food. NIV 11 "Then a famine struck all Egypt and Canaan, bringing great suffering, and our fathers could not find food. RHE 12 But when Jacob had heard that there was corn in Egypt, he sent our fathers first. NIV 12 When Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent our fathers on their first visit. RHE 13 And at the second time, Joseph was known by his brethren: and his kindred was made known to Pharao. NIV 13 On their second visit, Joseph told his brothers who he was, and Pharaoh learned about Joseph's family. RHE 14 And Joseph sending, called thither Jacob, his father, and all his kindred, seventy-five souls. NIV 14 After this, Joseph sent for his father Jacob and his whole family, seventy-five in all. RHE 15 So Jacob went down into Egypt. And he died, and our fathers. NIV 15 Then Jacob went down to Egypt, where he and our fathers died. RHE 16 And they were translated into Sichem and were laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Hemor, the son of Sichem. NIV 16 Their bodies were brought back to Shechem and placed in the tomb that Abraham had bought from the sons of Hamor at Shechem for a certain sum of money. RHE 17 And when the time of the promise drew near, which God had promised to Abraham, the people increased and were multiplied in Egypt. NIV 17 "As the time drew near for God to fulfill his promise to Abraham, the number of our people in Egypt greatly increased. RHE 18 Till another king arose in Egypt, who knew not Joseph. NIV 18 Then another king, who knew nothing about Joseph, became ruler of Egypt. RHE 19 This same, dealing craftily with our race, afflicted our fathers, that they should expose their children, to the end they might not be kept alive. NIV 19 He dealt treacherously with our people and oppressed our forefathers by forcing them to throw out their newborn babies so that they would die. RHE 20 At the same time was Moses born: and he was acceptable to God. Who was nourished three months in his father’s house. NIV 20 "At that time Moses was born, and he was no ordinary child. For three months he was cared for in his father's house. RHE 21 And when he was exposed, Pharao’s daughter took him up and nourished him for her own son. NIV 21 When he was placed outside, Pharaoh's daughter took him and brought him up as her own son. RHE 22 And Moses was instructed in all the wisdom of the Egyptians: and he was mighty in his words and in his deeds. NIV 22 Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in speech and action. RHE 23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren, the children of Israel. NIV 23 "When Moses was forty years old, he decided to visit his fellow Israelites. RHE 24 And when he had seen one of them suffer wrong, he defended him: and striking the Egyptian, he avenged him who suffered the injury. NIV 24 He saw one of them being mistreated by an Egyptian, so he went to his defense and avenged him by killing the Egyptian. RHE 25 And he thought that his brethren understood that God by his hand would save them. But they understood it not. NIV 25 Moses thought that his own people would realize that God was using him to rescue them, but they did not. RHE 26 And the day following, he shewed himself to them when they were at strife and would have reconciled them in peace, saying: Men, ye are brethren. Why hurt you one another? NIV 26 The next day Moses came upon two Israelites who were fighting. He tried to reconcile them by saying, 'Men, you are brothers; why do you want to hurt each other?' RHE 27 But he that did the injury to his neighbour thrust him away, saying: Who hath appointed thee prince and judge over us: NIV 27 "But the man who was mistreating the other pushed Moses aside and said, 'Who made you ruler and judge over us? RHE 28 What! Wilt thou kill me, as thou didst yesterday kill the Egyptian? NIV 28 Do you want to kill me as you killed the Egyptian yesterday?' RHE 29 And Moses fled upon this word: and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begot two sons. NIV 29 When Moses heard this, he fled to Midian, where he settled as a foreigner and had two sons. RHE 30 And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him, in the desert of mount Sina, an angel in a flame of fire in a bush. NIV 30 "After forty years had passed, an angel appeared to Moses in the flames of a burning bush in the desert near Mount Sinai. RHE 31 And Moses seeing it wondered at the sight. And as he drew near to view it, the voice of the Lord came unto him, saying: NIV 31 When he saw this, he was amazed at the sight. As he went over to look more closely, he heard the Lord's voice: RHE 32 I am the God of thy fathers: the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. And Moses being terrified durst not behold. NIV 32 'I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.' Moses trembled with fear and did not dare to look. RHE 33 And the Lord said to him: Loose the shoes from thy feet: for the place wherein thou standest is holy ground. NIV 33 "Then the Lord said to him, 'Take off your sandals; the place where you are standing is holy ground. RHE 34 Seeing, I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt: and I have heard their groaning and am come down to deliver them. And now come: and I will send thee into Egypt. NIV 34 I have indeed seen the oppression of my people in Egypt. I have heard their groaning and have come down to set them free. Now come, I will send you back to Egypt.' RHE 35 This Moses, whom they refused, saying: Who hath appointed thee prince and judge? Him God sent to be prince and redeemer, by the hand of the angel who appeared to him in the burning bush. NIV 35 "This is the same Moses whom they had rejected with the words, 'Who made you ruler and judge?' He was sent to be their ruler and deliverer by God himself, through the angel who appeared to him in the bush. RHE 36 He brought them out, doing wonders and signs in the land of Egypt and in the Red Sea and in the desert, forty years. NIV 36 He led them out of Egypt and did wonders and miraculous signs in Egypt, at the Red Sea and for forty years in the desert. RHE 37 This is that Moses who said to the children of Israel: A prophet shall God raise up to you of your own brethren, as myself. Him shall you hear. NIV 37 "This is that Moses who told the Israelites, 'God will send you a prophet like me from your own people.' RHE 38 This is he that was in the church in the wilderness, with the angel who spoke to him on Mount Sina and with our fathers. Who received the words of life to give unto us. NIV 38 He was in the assembly in the desert, with the angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers; and he received living words to pass on to us. RHE 39 Whom our fathers would not obey: but thrust him away and in their hearts turned back into Egypt, NIV 39 "But our fathers refused to obey him. Instead, they rejected him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt. RHE 40 Saying to Aaron: Make us gods to go before us. For as for this Moses, who brought us out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him. NIV 40 They told Aaron, 'Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who led us out of Egypt--we don't know what has happened to him!' RHE 41 And they made a calf in those days and offered sacrifices to the idol and rejoiced in the works of their own hands. NIV 41 That was the time they made an idol in the form of a calf. They brought sacrifices to it and held a celebration in honor of what their hands had made. RHE 42 And God turned and gave them up to serve the host of heaven, as it is written in the books of the prophets: Did you offer victims and sacrifices to me for forty years, in the desert, O house of Israel? NIV 42 But God turned away and gave them over to the worship of the heavenly bodies. This agrees with what is written in the book of the prophets: " 'Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings forty years in the desert, O house of Israel? RHE 43 And you took unto you the tabernacle of Moloch and the star of your god Rempham, figures which you made to adore them. And I will carry you away beyond Babylon. NIV 43 You have lifted up the shrine of Molech and the star of your god Rephan, the idols you made to worship. Therefore I will send you into exile' beyond Babylon. RHE 44 The tabernacle of the testimony was with our fathers in the desert, as God ordained for them, speaking to Moses, that he should make it according to the form which he had seen. NIV 44 "Our forefathers had the tabernacle of the Testimony with them in the desert. It had been made as God directed Moses, according to the pattern he had seen. RHE 45 Which also our fathers receiving, brought in with Jesus, into the possession of the Gentiles: whom God drove out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David, NIV 45 Having received the tabernacle, our fathers under Joshua brought it with them when they took the land from the nations God drove out before them. It remained in the land until the time of David, RHE 46 Who found grace before God and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. NIV 46 who enjoyed God's favor and asked that he might provide a dwelling place for the God of Jacob. RHE 47 But Solomon built him a house, NIV 47 But it was Solomon who built the house for him. RHE 48 Yet the most High dwelleth not in houses made by hands, as the prophet saith: NIV 48 "However, the Most High does not live in houses made by men. As the prophet says: RHE 49 Heaven is my throne and the earth my footstool. What house will you build me (saith the Lord)? Or what is the place of my resting? NIV 49 " 'Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build for me? says the Lord. Or where will my resting place be? RHE 50 Hath not my hand made all these things? NIV 50 Has not my hand made all these things?' RHE 51 You stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Ghost. As your fathers did, so do you also. NIV 51 "You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit! RHE 52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? And they have slain them who foretold of the coming of the Just One: of whom you have been now the betrayers and murderers. NIV 52 Was there ever a prophet your fathers did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him-- RHE 53 Who have received the law by the disposition of angels and have not kept it. NIV 53 you who have received the law that was put into effect through angels but have not obeyed it." RHE 54 Now hearing these things, they were cut to the heart: and they gnashed with their teeth at him. NIV 54 When they heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him. RHE 55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looking up steadfastly to heaven, saw the glory of God and Jesus standing on the right hand of God. NIV 55 But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. RHE 56 (7-55) And he said: Behold, I see the heavens opened and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. NIV 56 "Look," he said, "I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God." RHE 57 (7-56) And they, crying out with a loud voice, stopped their ears and with one accord ran violently upon him. NIV 57 At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, RHE 58 (7-57) And casting him forth without the city. they stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their garments at the feet of a young man, whose name was Saul. NIV 58 dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul. RHE 59 (7-58) And they stoned Stephen, invoking and saying: Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. NIV 59 While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." RHE 60 (7-59) And falling on his knees, he cried with a loud voice, saying: Lord, lay not his sin to their charge: And when he had said this, he fell asleep in the Lord. And Saul was consenting to his death. NIV 60 Then he fell on his knees and cried out, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." When he had said this, he fell asleep.
