Acts 16

  1 G1161   G2658 He G1519 came to G1191 Derbe G2532 and G3082 Lystra: G2532 and G2400 behold, G5100 a certain G3101 disciple G2258 was G1563 there, G3686 named G5095 Timothy, G5207 the son G5100 of a G1135   G2453 Jewess G4103 who believed; G1161 but G3962 his father G1672 was a Greek.
  2 G80 The brothers G3588 who were G1722 at G3082 Lystra G2532 and G2430 Iconium G3739 gave G3140 a good testimony G5259 about him.
  3 G3972 Paul G2309 wanted G5126 to have him G1831 go out G4862 with G846 him, G2532 and G2983 he took G2532 and G4059 circumcised G846 him G1223 because G2453 of the Jews G5607 who were G1722 in G1565 those G1063 parts; for G537 they all G1492 knew G3754 that G846 his G3962 father G5225 was G1672 a Greek.
  4 G1161   G5613 As G1279 they went on their way through G4172 the cities, G3860 they delivered G1378 the decrees G846 to them G5442 to keep G2919 which had been ordained G5259 by G652 the apostles G2532 and G4245 elders G3588 who were G1722 at G2419 Jerusalem.
  5 G3303   G3767 So G1577 the assemblies G4732 were G4732 strengthened G2596 in G4102 the faith, G2532 and G4052 increased G706 in number G2250 daily.
  6 G1161 When G1330 they had gone through G5561 the region G5435 of Phrygia G2532 and G1054 Galatia, G2967 they were forbidden G5259 by G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit G2980 to speak G3056 the word G1722 in G773 Asia.
  7 G2596 When G2064 they had come G3465 opposite Mysia, G3985 they tried G4198 to go G2596 into G978 Bithynia, G2532 but G4151 the Spirit G3756 didn't G1439 allow G846 them.
  8 G1161   G3928 Passing G3465 by Mysia, G2597 they came down G1519 to G5174 Troas.
  9 G2532   G3705 A vision G3700 appeared G3972 to Paul G1223 in G3571 the night. G2258 There was G435 a man G3110 of Macedonia G2476 standing, G3870 begging G846 him, G2532 and G3004 saying, G1224 "Come over G1519 into G3109 Macedonia G997 and help G2254 us."
  10 G1161   G5613 When G1492 he had seen G3705 the vision, G2112 immediately G2212 we sought G1831 to go G1519 out to G3109 Macedonia, G4822 concluding G3754 that G2962 the Lord G4341 had called G2248 us G2097 to preach the Good News G846 to them.
  11 G321 Setting sail G3767 therefore G575 from G5174 Troas, G2113 we made a straight course G1519 to G4543 Samothrace, G5037 and G1966 the day following G1519 to G3496 Neapolis;
  12 G5037 and G1564 from there G1519 to G5375 Philippi, G3748 which G2076 is G4172 a city G3109 of Macedonia, G4413 the foremost G3310 of the district, G2862 a Roman colony. G1161 We G1510 were G1304 staying G5100 some G2250 days G1722 in G3778 this G4172 city.
  13 G4521 On the Sabbath G2250 day G1831 we went G1854 forth outside G4172 of the city G3844 by G4215 a riverside, G3757 where G3543 we supposed G1511 there was a place G4335 of prayer, G2532 and G2523 we sat down, G2532 and G2980 spoke G1135 to the women G3588 who G4905 had come together.
  14 G5100 A certain G1135 woman G3686 named G3070 Lydia, G4211 a seller of purple, G4172 of the city G2363 of Thyatira, G3739 one who G4576 worshiped G2316 God, G191 heard G2588 us; whose heart G2962 the Lord G1272 opened G4337 to G4337 listen to G3588 the things which G2980 were spoken G5259 by G3972 Paul.
  15 G1161   G5613 When G1161 she and G846 her G3624 household G907 were baptized, G3870 she begged G3004 us, saying, G1487 "If G2919 you have judged G3165 me G1511 to be G4103 faithful G2962 to the Lord, G1525 come G1519 into G3450 my G3624 house, G3306 and stay." G2532 So G3849 she persuaded G2248 us.
  16 G1161   G1096 It happened, G2257 as we G4198 were going G1519 to G4335 prayer, G5100 that a certain G3814 girl G2192 having G4151 a spirit G4436 of divination G528 met G2254 us, G3748 who G3930 brought G846 her G2962 masters G4183 much G2039 gain G3132 by fortune telling.
  17 G3778   G2628 Following G3972 Paul G2532 and G2254 us, G2896 she cried G3004 out, G3778 "These G444 men G1526 are G1401 servants G5310 of the Most High G2316 God, G3748 who G2605 proclaim to G2254 us G3598 a way G4991 of salvation!"
  18 G1161   G4160 She G5124 was doing this G1909 for G4183 many G2250 days. G1161 But G3972 Paul, G1278 becoming greatly annoyed, G1994 turned G2532 and G2036 said G4151 to the spirit, G3853 "I command G4671 you G1722 in G3686 the name G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G1831 to come out G575 of G846 her!" G2532 It G1831 came out G846 that very G5610 hour.
  19 G1161 But G846 when her G2962 masters G1492 saw G3754 that G1680 the hope G846 of their G2039 gain G1831 was gone, G1949 they seized G3972 Paul G2532 and G4609 Silas, G1670 and dragged G1519 them into G58 the marketplace G1909 before G758 the rulers.
  20 G2532 When G4317 they had brought G846 them G4755 to the magistrates, G2036 they said, G3778 "These G444 men, G5225 being G2453 Jews, G1613 are agitating G2257 our G4172 city,
  21 G2532 and G2605 set forth G1485 customs G3739 which G1832 it is G3756 not G1832 lawful G2254 for us G3858 to accept G3761 or G4160 to observe, G5607 being G4514 Romans."
  22 G2532 The G3793 multitude G4911 rose up together G2596 against G846 them, G2532 and G4755 the magistrates G846 tore their G2440 clothes G4048 off G2753 of them, and commanded G4463 them to be beaten with rods.
  23 G5037 When G2007 they had laid G4183 many G4127 stripes G846 on them, G906 they threw G1519 them into G5438 prison, G3853 charging G1200 the jailer G5083 to keep G846 them G806 safely,
  24 G3739 who, G2983 having received G5108 such G3852 a command, G906 threw G846 them G1519 into G2082 the inner G5438 prison, G2532 and G805   G805 secured G846 their G4228 feet G1519 in G3586 the stocks.
  25 G1161 But G2596 about G3317 midnight G3972 Paul G2532 and G4609 Silas G4336 were praying G5214 and singing hymns G2316 to God, G1161 and G1198 the prisoners G1874 were listening G846 to them.
  26 G1161   G869 Suddenly G1096 there was G3173 a great G4578 earthquake, G5620 so that G2310 the foundations G1201 of the prison G4531 were shaken; G5037 and G3916 immediately G3956 all G2374 the doors G455 were opened, G2532 and G3956 everyone's G1199 bonds G447 were loosened.
  27 G1161 The G1200 jailer, G1096 being roused out G1853 of sleep G2532 and G1492 seeing G1200 the prison G2374 doors G455 open, G4685 drew G3162 his sword G3195 and was G337 about to kill G1438 himself, G3543 supposing that G1198 the prisoners G1628 had escaped.
  28 G1161 But G3972 Paul G5455 cried G3173 with a loud G5456 voice, G3004 saying, G4238 "Don't G3367   G2556 harm G4572 yourself, G1063 for G2070 we are G537 all G1759 here!"
  29 G1161 He G154 called G5457 for lights G1530 and sprang in, G2532 and, G4363 fell down G1096   G1790 trembling G3972 before Paul G2532 and G4609 Silas,
  30 G2532 and G4254 brought G846 them G1854 out G5346 and said, G2962 "Sirs, G5101 what G1163 must G3165 I G4160 do G2443 to be G4982 saved?"
  31 G1161 They G2036 said, G4100 "Believe G1909 in G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G2532 and G4771 you G4982 will be saved, G2532 you and G4675 your G3624 household."
  32 G2532 They G2980 spoke G3056 the word G2962 of the Lord G846 to him, G2532 and G3956 to all G3588 who were G1722 in G846 his G3614 house.
  33 G2532 He G3880 took G846 them G1722   G1565 the same G5610 hour G3571 of the night, G3068 and washed G575 their G4127 stripes, G2532 and G3916 was immediately G907 baptized, G846 he G2532 and G3956 all G846 his household.
  34 G5037 He G321 brought G846 them G1519 up into G846 his G3624 house, G3908 and set G5132 food G3908 before them, G2532 and G21 rejoiced G3832 greatly, with all his household, G4100 having believed G2316 in God.
  35 G1161 But G1096 when G2250 it was day, G4755 the magistrates G649 sent G4465 the sergeants, G3004 saying, G630 "Let G1565 those G444 men G630 go."
  36 G1161 The G1200 jailer G518 reported G5128 these G3056 words G4314 to G3754 Paul, G4755 saying, "The magistrates G649 have sent G2443 to G630 let you go; G3568 now G3767 therefore G1831 come out, G1831 and go G1722 in G1515 peace."
  37 G1161 But G3972 Paul G5346 said G4314 to G846 them, G1194 "They have beaten G2248 us G1219 publicly, G178 without a trial, G5225 men who are G444 Romans, G906 and have cast G1519 us into G5438 prison! G2532 Do G3568 they now G1544 release G2248 us G1544   G2977 secretly? G3756 No, G1063 most certainly, G235 but G2064 let them come G846 themselves G1806 and bring G2248 us G1219 out!"
  38 G1161 The G4465 sergeants G312 reported G5023 these G4487 words G4755 to the magistrates, G2532 and G5399 they were afraid G191 when they heard G3754 that G1526 they were G4514 Romans,
  39 G2532 and G2064 they came G3870 and begged G846 them. G1806 When they had brought G846 them G1806 out, G2065 they asked G1831 them to depart G4172 from the city.
  40 G1161 They G1831 went G1537 out of G5438 the prison, G1525 and entered G1519 into G3070 Lydia's G2532 house. When G1492 they had seen G80 the brothers, G3870 they encouraged G846 them, G2532 and G1831 departed.
