When they opposed and reviled him, in protest he shook the dust from his clothes and said to them, "Your blood be on your own heads! I am innocent. From now on I will go to the Gentiles."
Then he left the synagogue and went to the house of a man named Titius Justus, a worshiper of God; his house was next door to the synagogue.
Crispus, the official of the synagogue, became a believer in the Lord, together with all his household; and many of the Corinthians who heard Paul became believers and were baptized.
One night the Lord said to Paul in a vision, "Do not be afraid, but speak and do not be silent;
for I am with you, and no one will lay a hand on you to harm you, for there are many in this city who are my people."
He stayed there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
