Paul in Corinth

Acts 18

1 After these things Paul departed from Athens and went to Corinth. 2 And he found a certain Jew named a Aquila, born in Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla (because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to depart from Rome); and he came to them. 3 So, because he was of the same trade, he stayed with them b and worked; for by occupation they were tentmakers. 4 c And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded both Jews and Greeks.

5 d When Silas and Timothy had come from Macedonia, Paul was e compelled 1 by the Spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus is the Christ. 6 But f when they opposed him and blasphemed, g he shook his garments and said to them, h "Your blood be upon your own heads; i I am clean. j From now on I will go to the Gentiles." 7 And he departed from there and entered the house of a certain man named 2 Justus, one who worshiped God, whose house was next door to the synagogue. 8 k Then Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his household. And many of the Corinthians, hearing, believed and were baptized. 9 Now l the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, "Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; 10 m "for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city." 11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.

12 When Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews with one accord rose up against Paul and brought him to the 3 judgment seat, 13 saying, "This fellow persuades men to worship God contrary to the law." 14 And when Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, "If it were a matter of wrongdoing or wicked crimes, O Jews, there would be reason why I should bear with you. 15 "But if it is a n question of words and names and your own law, look to it yourselves; for I do not want to be a judge of such matters." 16 And he drove them from the judgment seat. 17 Then 4 all the Greeks took o Sosthenes, the ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment seat. But Gallio took no notice of these things.
