Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' Hill and said, "Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
For as I passed by and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription: `To the Unknown God'. Whom therefore ye worship in ignorance, Him I declare unto you.
God who made the world and all things therein, seeing that He is Lord of Heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands.
Neither is He worshiped with men's hands, as though He needed anything, seeing He giveth to all life, and breath, and all things.
And He hath made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation,
that they should seek the Lord, if perhaps they might feel after Him and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us.
For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as also certain of your own poets have said, `For we are also His offspring.'
"For inasmuch, then, as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold or silver or stone, graven by art and of man's devising.
The times of this ignorance God overlooked, but now He commandeth all men everywhere to repent,
because He hath appointed a Day in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that Man whom He hath ordained. Of this He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead."
