Acts 7

JUB 1 Then the prince of the priests said, Are these things so? NIV 1 Then the high priest asked Stephen, “Are these charges true?” JUB 2 And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken. The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Haran, 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 Harran. JUB 3 and said unto him, Get thee out of thy country and from thy kindred and come into the land which I shall show thee. NIV 3 ‘Leave your country and your people,’ God said, ‘and go to the land I will show you.’ JUB 4 Then he came out of the land of the Chaldaeans and dwelt in Haran; and from there, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, in which ye now dwell. NIV 4 “So he left the land of the Chaldeans and settled in Harran. After the death of his father, God sent him to this land where you are now living. JUB 5 And he gave him no inheritance in it, no, not <em>so much as</em> to set his foot on; yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession and to his seed after him, when <em>as yet</em> he had no child. NIV 5 He gave him no inheritance here, not even enough ground to set his foot on. But God promised him that he and his descendants after him would possess the land, even though at that time Abraham had no child. JUB 6 And God spoke thus, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into slavery and mistreat <em>them</em> four hundred years. NIV 6 God spoke to him in this way: ‘For four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated. JUB 7 And the Gentiles unto whom they shall be in slavery I will judge, said God; and after that they shall come forth and 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.’ JUB 8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision; and so <em>Abraham</em> begat Isaac and circumcised him the eighth day, and Isaac <em>begat</em> Jacob, and Jacob <em>begat</em> 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. JUB 9 And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt, but 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 JUB 10 and delivered him out of all his afflictions and gave him grace and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he made him governor over Egypt and 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 Pharaoh made him ruler over Egypt and all his palace. JUB 11 Now there came a famine over all the land of Egypt and Canaan, and great tribulation, and our fathers found no sustenance. NIV 11 “Then a famine struck all Egypt and Canaan, bringing great suffering, and our ancestors could not find food. JUB 12 But when Jacob heard that there was wheat in Egypt, he sent our fathers the first time. NIV 12 When Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent our forefathers on their first visit. JUB 13 And in the second Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph’s lineage was made known unto Pharaoh. NIV 13 On their second visit, Joseph told his brothers who he was, and Pharaoh learned about Joseph’s family. JUB 14 Then Joseph sent and called his father Jacob unto <em>him</em> 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. JUB 15 So Jacob went down into Egypt and died, he and our fathers, NIV 15 Then Jacob went down to Egypt, where he and our ancestors died. JUB 16 who were carried over into Shechem and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money from the sons of Hamor of Shechem. 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. JUB 17 But when the time of the promise drew nigh, which God had sworn to Abraham, the people grew and 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 had greatly increased. JUB 18 until another king arose, who did not know Joseph. NIV 18 Then ‘a new king, to whom Joseph meant nothing, came to power in Egypt.’ JUB 19 The same dealt subtly with our kindred and mistreated our fathers so that they exposed their babies <em>to death</em>, to the end that the generation would cease. NIV 19 He dealt treacherously with our people and oppressed our ancestors by forcing them to throw out their newborn babies so that they would die. JUB 20 In which time Moses was born and was beautiful to God and was nourished in his father’s house three months; NIV 20 “At that time Moses was born, and he was no ordinary child. For three months he was cared for by his family. JUB 21 and when he was put in danger, Pharaoh’s daughter took him in and nourished him as her own son. NIV 21 When he was placed outside, Pharaoh’s daughter took him and brought him up as her own son. JUB 22 And Moses was taught in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was mighty in his words and deeds. NIV 22 Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in speech and action. JUB 23 And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the sons of Israel. NIV 23 “When Moses was forty years old, he decided to visit his own people, the Israelites. JUB 24 And seeing one <em>of them</em> suffer wrong, he defended <em>him</em> and smote the Egyptian, avenging the oppressed; 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. JUB 25 for he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God was to give them saving health by his hand, but they had not understood. NIV 25 Moses thought that his own people would realize that God was using him to rescue them, but they did not. JUB 26 And the next day he showed himself unto them as they strove and urged them to peace, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to 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?’ JUB 27 But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a prince and a 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? JUB 28 Wilt thou kill me as thou didst the Egyptian yesterday? NIV 28 Are you thinking of killing me as you killed the Egyptian yesterday?’ JUB 29 Then Moses fled at this word and became a sojourner in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons. NIV 29 When Moses heard this, he fled to Midian, where he settled as a foreigner and had two sons. JUB 30 And when forty years were expired, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in the wilderness of Mount Sinai, 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. JUB 31 When Moses saw <em>it</em>, he wondered at the vision; and as he drew near to consider <em>it</em>, the voice of the Lord came unto him, NIV 31 When he saw this, he was amazed at the sight. As he went over to get a closer look, he heard the Lord say: JUB 32 <em>saying</em>, I <em>am</em> the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled and dared not to 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. JUB 33 Then the Lord said to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet; for the place where thou dost stand is holy ground. NIV 33 “Then the Lord said to him, ‘Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground. JUB 34 I have seen, 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, 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.’ JUB 35 This Moses, whom they had refused, saying, Who made thee a prince and a judge? the same did God send as prince and redeemer by the hand of the angel who appeared to him in the bush. NIV 35 “This is the same Moses 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. JUB 36 He brought them out, showing wonders and signs in the land of Egypt and in the Red Sea and in the wilderness for forty years. NIV 36 He led them out of Egypt and performed wonders and signs in Egypt, at the Red Sea and for forty years in the wilderness. JUB 37 This is that Moses, who said unto the sons of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren like unto me; him shall ye hear. NIV 37 “This is the Moses who told the Israelites, ‘God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your own people.’ JUB 38 This is he, who was in the <em>congregation</em> {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} in the wilderness with the angel who spoke to him in the Mount Sinai and <em>with</em> our fathers, who received the oracles of life to give unto us; NIV 38 He was in the assembly in the wilderness, with the angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our ancestors; and he received living words to pass on to us. JUB 39 to whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust <em>him</em> from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt, NIV 39 “But our ancestors refused to obey him. Instead, they rejected him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt. JUB 40 saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us; for <em>as for</em> 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!’ JUB 41 And then they made a calf and offered sacrifice unto 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 reveled in what their own hands had made. JUB 42 Then God withdrew and gave them up to worship the host of the heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices <em>by the space of</em> forty years in the wilderness? NIV 42 But God turned away from them and gave them over to the worship of the sun, moon and stars. This agrees with what is written in the book of the prophets: “ ‘Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings forty years in the wilderness, people of Israel? JUB 43 On the contrary, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them; and I will carry you away beyond Babylon. NIV 43 You have taken up the tabernacle of Molek and the star of your god Rephan, the idols you made to worship. Therefore I will send you into exile’ beyond Babylon. JUB 44 Our fathers had the tabernacle of the testimony in the wilderness, as he had appointed, speaking unto Moses that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen, NIV 44 “Our ancestors had the tabernacle of the covenant law with them in the wilderness. It had been made as God directed Moses, according to the pattern he had seen. JUB 45 which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus {Joshua in Heb.} into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drove out before the face of our fathers unto the days of David, NIV 45 After receiving the tabernacle, our ancestors 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, JUB 46 who found grace before God and asked to provide 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. JUB 47 But Solomon built him a house. NIV 47 But it was Solomon who built a house for him. JUB 48 Howbeit the most High does not dwell in temples made with hands, as saith the prophet, NIV 48 “However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. As the prophet says: JUB 49 Heaven <em>is</em> my throne, and earth <em>is</em> my footstool; what house will ye build me? saith the Lord, or what <em>is</em> the place of my rest? 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? JUB 50 Has not my hand made all these things? NIV 50 Has not my hand made all these things?’ JUB 51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers <em>did</em>, so <em>do</em> ye. NIV 51 “You stiff-necked people! Your hearts and ears are still uncircumcised. You are just like your ancestors: You always resist the Holy Spirit! JUB 52 Who of the prophets have your fathers not persecuted? and they have slain those who announced before the coming of the Just One, of whom ye have now been the betrayers and murderers, NIV 52 Was there ever a prophet your ancestors did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him— JUB 53 who have received the law by the disposition of angels and have not kept <em>it</em>. NIV 53 you who have received the law that was given through angels but have not obeyed it.” JUB 54 When they heard these things, they were divided in their hearts and gnashed on him with <em>their</em> teeth. NIV 54 When the members of the Sanhedrin heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him. JUB 55 But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, looked up steadfastly into heaven and 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. JUB 56 and 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.” JUB 57 And crying out with a loud voice, they stopped their ears and ran upon him with one accord; NIV 57 At this they covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, JUB 58 and casting <em>him</em> out of the city, they stoned <em>him</em>; and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul. NIV 58 dragged him out of the city and began to stone him. Meanwhile, the witnesses laid their coats at the feet of a young man named Saul. JUB 59 And they stoned Stephen calling upon <em>God</em> and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. NIV 59 While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” JUB 60 And he kneeled down and cried with a loud voice, Lord, impute not this sin to their charge. And having said this, he fell asleep in the Lord. 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.
