And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavored to go into Macedonia, assuredly concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the Gospel unto them.
Therefore casting loose from Troas we made a straight course to Samothrace, and the next day Neapolis,
and from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony. And we stayed in that city a number of days.
And on the Sabbath, we went out of the city by a riverside where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down and spoke unto the women who resorted thither.
And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, who worshiped God, heard us; and the Lord opened her heart to give heed unto the things which were spoken by Paul.
And when she was baptized with her household, she besought us, saying, "If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house and abide there." And she constrained us.
And it came to pass as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed by a spirit of divination met us. She had brought her masters much gain by soothsaying.
The same followed Paul and us, crying out and saying, "These men are the servants of the Most High God, who show unto us the way of salvation."
