KING JAMES VERSION


 
Genesis 3

Todayís Reading: Acts 16- 18 (KJV)

 

Acts 16

Act 16:1Then came he to Derbe and Lystra: and, behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timothy, the son of a certain woman, which was a Jewess, and believed; but his father was a Greek:

Act 16:2Which was well reported of by the brethren that were at Lystra and Iconium.

Act 16:3Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his father was a Greek.

Act 16:4And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep, that were ordained of the apostles and elders which were at Jerusalem.

Act 16:5And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.

Act 16:6Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,

Act 16:7After they were come to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.

Act 16:8And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.

Act 16:9And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; there stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.

Act 16:10And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.

Act 16:11Therefore loosing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the next day to Neapolis;

Act 16:12And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days.

Act 16:13And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither.

Act 16:14And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.

Act 16:15And when she was baptized, and 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.

Act 16:16And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:

Act 16:17The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which show unto us the way of salvation.

Act 16:18And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.

Act 16:19And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers,

Act 16:20And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,

Act 16:21And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.

Act 16:22And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.

Act 16:23And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely:

Act 16:24Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.

Act 16:25And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

Act 16:26And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every oneís bands were loosed.

Act 16:27And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.

Act 16:28But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.

Act 16:29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

Act 16:30And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

Act 16:31And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Act 16:32And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

Act 16:33And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

Act 16:34And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

Act 16:35And when it was day, the magistrates sent the sergeants, saying, Let those men go.

Act 16:36And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, The magistrates have sent to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace.

Act 16:37But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out.

Act 16:38And the sergeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared, when they heard that they were Romans.

Act 16:39And they came and besought them, and brought them out, and desired them to depart out of the city.

Act 16:40And they went out of the prison, and entered into the house of Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.

 

Acts 17

Act 17:1Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:

Act 17:2And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the Scriptures,

Act 17:3Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.

Act 17:4And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few.

Act 17:5But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.

Act 17:6And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;

Act 17:7Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.

Act 17:8And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.

Act 17:9And when they had taken security of Jason, and of the other, they let them go.

Act 17:10And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.

Act 17:11These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Act 17:12Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.

Act 17:13But when the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea, they came thither also, and stirred up the people.

Act 17:14And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timothy abode there still.

Act 17:15And they that conducted Paul brought him unto Athens: and receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timothy for to come to him with all speed, they departed.

Act 17:16Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.

Act 17:17Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.

Act 17:18Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoics, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.

Act 17:19And they took him, and brought him unto Areopagus, saying, May we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest, is?

Act 17:20For thou bringest certain strange things to our ears: we would know therefore what these things mean.

Act 17:21(For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)

Act 17:22Then Paul stood in the midst of Marsí hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.

Act 17:23For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

Act 17:24God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

Act 17:25Neither is worshiped with menís hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

Act 17:26And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

Act 17:27That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

Act 17:28For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Act 17:29Forasmuch 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 manís device.

Act 17:30And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

Act 17:31Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Act 17:32And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter.

Act 17:33So Paul departed from among them.

Act 17:34Howbeit certain men cleaved unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

 

Acts 18

Act 18:1After these things Paul departed from Athens and came to Corinth;

Act 18:2And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; because that (Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.

Act 18:3And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.

Act 18:4And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.

Act 18:5And when Silas and Timothy were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.

Act 18:6And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.

Act 18:7And he departed thence, and entered into a certain manís house, named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.

Act 18:8And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.

Act 18:9Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:

Act 18:10For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

Act 18:11And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.

Act 18:12And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgment seat,

Act 18:13Saying, This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law.

Act 18:14And when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O ye Jews, reason would that I should bear with you:

Act 18:15But if it be a question of words and names, and of your law, look ye to it; for I will be no judge of such matters.

Act 18:16And he drove them from the judgment seat.

Act 18:17Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things.

Act 18:18And Paul after this tarried there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.

Act 18:19And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.

Act 18:20When they desired him to tarry longer time with them, he consented not;

Act 18:21But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.

Act 18:22And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the church, he went down to Antioch.

Act 18:23And after he had spent some time there, he departed, and went over all the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order, strengthening all the disciples.

Act 18:24And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the Scriptures, came to Ephesus.

Act 18:25This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.

Act 18:26And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.

Act 18:27And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:

Act 18:28For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, showing by the Scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
