1 G1161 Now G1353 when they had passed through G295 Amphipolis G2532 and G624 Apollonia, G2064 they came G1519 to G2332 Thessalonica, G3699 where G2258 there was G2453 a Jewish G4864 synagogue.
2 G3972 Paul, G2596 as G1486 was G1486 his custom, G1525 went in G4314 to G846 them, G2532 and G1909 for G5140 three G4521 Sabbath days G1256 reasoned G846 with them G575 from G1124 the Scriptures,
3 G1272 explaining G2532 and G3908 demonstrating G3754 that G5547 the Christ G1163 had G3958 to suffer G2532 and G450 rise again G1537 from G3498 the dead, G2532 and G3754 saying, G3778 "This G2424 Jesus, G3739 whom G1473 I G2605 proclaim G5213 to you, G2076 is G5547 the Christ."
4 G2532 G5100 Some G1537 of G846 them G3982 were persuaded, G2532 and G4345 joined G3972 Paul G2532 and G4609 Silas, G5037 of G4576 the devout G1672 Greeks G4183 a great G4128 multitude, G5037 and G3756 not G3641 a few G4413 of the chief G1135 women.
5 G1161 But G3588 the G544 unpersuaded G2453 Jews G2206 G4355 took along G2532 G5100 some G4190 wicked G435 men G60 from the marketplace, G2532 and G2532 gathering a G3792 crowd, G2350 set the G4172 city G2350 in an uproar. G2186 Assaulting G3614 the house G2394 of Jason, G2212 they sought G71 to bring G846 them G71 out G1519 to G1218 the people.
6 G1161 When G3361 they didn't G2147 find G846 them, G4951 they dragged G2394 Jason G2532 and G5100 certain G80 brothers G1909 before G4173 the rulers of the city, G994 crying, G3778 "These G3754 who G387 have turned G3625 the world G387 upside down G3918 have come G1759 here G2532 also,
7 G3739 whom G2394 Jason G5264 has received. G2532 G3778 These G3956 all G4238 act G561 contrary G1378 to the decrees G2541 of Caesar, G3004 saying G1511 that there is G2087 another G935 king, G2424 Jesus!"
8 G1161 The G3793 multitude G1161 and G4173 the rulers of the city G5015 were troubled G191 when they heard G5023 these things.
9 G2532 When G2983 they had taken G2425 security G3844 from G2394 Jason G2532 and G3062 the rest, G630 they let G846 them G630 go.
10 G1161 The G80 brothers G2112 immediately G5037 sent G3972 Paul G1161 and G4609 Silas G1599 away G1223 by G3571 night G1519 to G960 Beroea. G3748 When they G3854 arrived, G549 they went G1519 into G2453 the Jewish G4864 synagogue.
11 G3778 Now these G2258 were G2104 more noble G3588 than those G1722 in G2332 Thessalonica, G3748 in that G1209 they received G3056 the word G3326 with G3956 all G4288 readiness of the mind, G350 examining G1124 the Scriptures G2596 G2250 daily G1487 to see whether G5023 these things G2192 were G3779 so.
12 G4183 Many G1537 of G846 them G3767 therefore G3303 G4100 believed; G2532 also G1537 of G2158 the prominent G1674 Greek G1135 women, G2532 and G3756 not G3641 a few G435 men.
13 G1161 But G5613 when G2453 the Jews G575 of G2332 Thessalonica G1097 had knowledge G3754 that G3056 the word G2316 of God G2605 was proclaimed G5259 by G3972 Paul G1722 at G960 Beroea G2546 also, G2064 they came G2532 there likewise, G4531 agitating G3793 the multitudes.
14 G1161 G5119 Then G80 the brothers G2112 immediately G1821 sent out G3972 Paul G4198 to go G5613 as far as G1909 to G2281 the sea, G1161 and G5037 G4609 Silas G2532 and G5095 Timothy G5278 still G5278 stayed G1563 there.
15 G1161 But G3588 those G2525 who escorted G3972 Paul G71 brought G846 him G2193 as far as G116 Athens. G2532 G2983 Receiving G1785 a commandment G4314 to G4609 Silas G2532 and G5095 Timothy G2443 that they should G2064 come G4314 to G846 him G5613 very G5033 quickly, G1826 they departed.
16 G1161 Now G3972 while Paul G1551 waited G846 for them G1722 at G116 Athens, G846 his G4151 spirit G3947 was provoked G1722 within G846 him G5607 as G2334 he saw G4172 the city G2712 full of idols.
17 G3303 So G3767 G1256 he G1722 reasoned in G4864 the synagogue G2453 with the Jews G2532 and G4576 the devout persons, G2532 and G1722 in G58 the marketplace G3956 every G2250 day G4314 with G3588 those who G3909 met him.
18 G1161 G5100 Some G1946 of the Epicurean G2532 and G4770 Stoic G5386 philosophers G4820 also were conversing G846 with him. G2532 G5100 Some G3004 said, G5101 "What G302 G2309 does G3778 this G4691 babbler G1161 want to say?" G3588 Others G1380 said, "He seems G1511 to be G2604 advocating G3581 foreign G1140 deities," G3754 because G2097 he preached G846 G2424 Jesus G2532 and G386 the resurrection.
19 G5037 They G1949 took G846 hold of him, G71 and brought G1909 him to G697 the Areopagus, G3004 saying, G1410 "May G1097 we know G5101 what G3778 this G2537 new G1322 teaching G5259 is, which G2980 is spoken G4675 by you?
20 G1063 For G1533 you bring G5100 certain G3579 strange G1519 things to G2257 our G189 ears. G1519 We want to G1097 know G3767 therefore G5101 what G5023 these things G1511 mean."
21 G1161 Now G3956 all G117 the Athenians G2532 and G3581 the strangers G3588 living G1927 there G2119 spent their time G1519 in G3762 nothing G2087 else, G2228 but either G3004 to tell G2532 or G191 to hear G5100 some G2537 new thing.
22 G1161 G3972 Paul G2476 stood G1722 in G3319 the middle G697 of the Areopagus, G5346 and said, G435 "You men G117 of Athens, G2334 I perceive G5209 that you G5613 are G1174 very religious G2596 in G3956 all things.
23 G1063 For G1330 as I passed along, G2532 and G333 observed G5216 the objects of your G4574 worship, G2147 I found G2532 also G1041 an altar G1722 with G3739 this G1924 inscription: G57 ‘TO AN UNKNOWN G2316 GOD.' G3739 What G3767 therefore G2151 you worship G50 in ignorance, G5126 this G1473 I G2605 announce G5213 to you.
24 G2316 The God G4160 who made G2889 the world G2532 and G3956 all things G1722 in G846 it, G3778 he, G5225 being G2962 Lord G3772 of heaven G2532 and G1093 earth, G3756 doesn't G2730 dwell G1722 in G3485 temples G5499 made with hands,
25 G3761 neither G2323 is he served G5259 by G444 men's G5495 hands, G4326 as though he needed G5100 anything, G846 seeing he G1325 himself gives G3956 to all G2222 life G2532 and G4157 breath, G2596 and G3956 all things.
26 G5037 He G4160 made G1520 from one G129 blood G3956 every G1484 nation G1537 of G444 men G2730 to dwell G1909 on G3956 all G4383 the surface G1093 of the earth, G3724 having determined G4384 appointed G2540 seasons, G2532 and G3734 the boundaries G846 of their G2733 dwellings,
27 G2212 that they should seek G2962 the Lord, G1487 if G686 G1065 perhaps G5584 they might reach out for G846 him G2532 and G2147 find G846 him, G2544 though G5225 he is G3756 not G3112 far G575 from G1538 each G1520 one G2257 of us.
28 G1063 ‘For G1722 in G846 him G2198 we live, G2532 and G2795 move, G2532 and G2070 have our being.' G5613 As G5100 some G2532 G2596 of G5209 your own G4163 poets G2046 have said, G1063 ‘For G2070 we are G2532 also G1085 his offspring.'
29 G5225 Being G3767 then G1085 the offspring G2316 of God, G3784 we ought G3756 not G3543 to think that G2304 the Divine Nature G1511 is G3664 like G5557 gold, G2228 or G696 silver, G2228 or G3037 stone, G5480 engraved G5078 by art G2532 and G1761 design G444 of man.
30 G3303 G5550 The times G52 of ignorance G3767 therefore G2316 God G5237 overlooked. G3588 But G3568 now G3853 he commands G3956 that all G444 people G3837 everywhere G3340 should repent,
31 G1360 because G2476 he has appointed G2250 a day G1722 in G3739 which G3195 he will G2919 judge G3625 the world G1722 in G1343 righteousness G1722 by G435 the man G3739 whom G3724 he has ordained; G3930 of which he has given G4102 assurance G3956 to all G450 men, in that he has raised G846 him G1537 from G3498 the dead."
32 G1161 Now G191 when they heard G386 of the resurrection G3498 of the dead, G3588 some G5512 mocked; G1161 but G3588 others G2036 said, G191 "We want to hear G4675 you G3825 again G4012 concerning G3303 G5127 this."
