found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius

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

when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was
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.
7And he departed
thence, and entered into a certain man's house, named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.
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.
9Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak,
and hold not thy peace:
10For I am with thee,
and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
11And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
12And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one
accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgment seat,
This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law.
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:
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.
16And he drave them from the judgment seat.
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.
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.
19And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the
synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.
they desired him to tarry longer time with them, he consented not;
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.
22And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the church, he went down to Antioch.
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.
24And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty
in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
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.
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.
when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come,

he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
