  • 1 After these things Paul departed from Athens and came to Corinth.
  • 2 And he found a certain Jew named 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 and worked; because by occupation they were tentmakers.
  • 4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded both Jews and Greeks.
  • 5 And when Silas and Timothy had come from Macedonia, Paul was compelled by the Spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus is the Christ.
  • 6 But when they opposed themselves and blasphemed, he shook his clothes and said to them, “Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean. From now on I will go to the Gentiles.”
  • 7 And he departed from there and entered the house of a certain man named Justus, one who worshiped God, whose house was next door to the synagogue.
  • 8 Then Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with his entire household. And many of the Corinthians, hearing, believed and were baptized.
  • 9 Now the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent;
  • 10 because I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; because 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 judgment seat,
  • 13 saying, “This man 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 question of words and names and your own law, look to it yourselves; because I do not want to be a judge of such matters.”
  • 16 And he drove them from the judgment seat.
  • 17 Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes, the ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment seat. But Gallio took no notice of these things.
  • 18 So after this Paul still remained there a good while. Then he took leave of the brethren and sailed for Syria, and Priscilla and Aquila were with him; having shaved his head at Cenchrea, because he had taken a vow.
  • 19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there; but he himself entered the synagogue and reasoned with the Jews.
  • 20 When they asked him to stay a longer time with them, he did not consent,
  • 21 but bid them goodbye, saying, “I must by all means keep this coming feast in Jerusalem; but I will return again to you, God willing.” And he sailed from Ephesus.
  • 22 And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up and greeted the church, he went down to Antioch.
  • 23 After he had spent some time there, he departed and went over the entire region of Galatia and Phrygia in order, strengthening all the disciples.
  • 24 Now a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man and mighty in the Scriptures, came to Ephesus.
  • 25 This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things of the Lord, though he knew only the baptism of John.
  • 26 So he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more exactly.
  • 27 And when he desired to cross to Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him; and when he arrived, he greatly helped those who had believed through grace;
  • 28 because he effectively refuted the Jews, doing so publicly, showing from the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ.
