1 G1161 It G1096 happened G1722 that, G625 while Apollos G1511 was G1722 at G2882 Corinth, G3972 Paul, G1330 having passed through G510 the upper G3313 country, G2064 came G1519 to G2181 Ephesus, G2532 and G2147 found G5100 certain G3101 disciples.
2 G2036 He said G4314 to G846 them, G1487 "Did G2983 you receive G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit G4100 when you believed?" G1161 They G2036 said G4314 to G235 him, G191 "No, we haven't G3761 even G191 heard G1487 that G2076 there is G40 a Holy G4151 Spirit."
3 G5037 He G2036 said, G4314 G846 G1519 "Into G5101 what G3767 then G907 were you baptized?" G1161 They G2036 said, G1519 "Into G2491 John's G908 baptism."
4 G1161 G3972 Paul G2036 said, G2491 "John G3303 indeed G907 baptized G908 with the baptism G3341 of repentance, G3004 saying G2992 to the people G2443 that G4100 they should believe G1519 in G3588 the one who G2064 would come G3326 after G846 him, G5124 that G2076 is, G1519 in G5547 G2424 Jesus."
5 G1161 When G191 they heard G907 this, they were baptized G1519 in G3686 the name G2962 of the Lord G2424 Jesus.
6 G2532 When G3972 Paul G2007 had laid G5495 his hands G846 on them, G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit G2064 came G1909 on G846 them, G5037 and G2980 they spoke G1100 with other languages G2532 and G4395 prophesied.
8 G1161 He G1525 entered G1519 into G4864 the synagogue, G3955 and spoke boldly G1909 for a period of G5140 three G3376 months, G1256 reasoning G2532 and G3982 persuading G3588 about the things G4012 concerning G932 the Kingdom G2316 of God.
9 G1161 But G5613 when G5100 some G4645 were hardened G2532 and G544 disobedient, G2551 speaking evil G3598 of the Way G1799 before G4128 the multitude, G868 he departed G575 from G846 them, G873 and separated G3101 the disciples, G1256 reasoning G2596 G2250 daily G1722 in G4981 the school G5100 of G5181 Tyrannus.
10 G1161 G5124 This G1096 continued G1909 for G1417 two G2094 years, G5620 so that G3956 all G3588 those G2730 who lived G773 in Asia G191 heard G3056 the word G2962 of the Lord G2424 Jesus, G5037 both G2453 Jews G2532 and G1672 Greeks.
11 G5037 G2316 God G4160 worked G3756 G5177 special G1411 miracles G1223 by G5495 the hands G3972 of Paul,
12 G5620 so that G2532 even G4676 handkerchiefs G2228 or G4612 aprons G2018 were carried G575 away from G846 his G5559 body G1909 to G770 the sick, G2532 and G4190 the evil G4151 spirits G525 went out.
13 G1161 But G5100 some G575 of G4022 the itinerant G2453 Jews, G1845 exorcists, G2021 took on themselves G3687 to invoke G1909 over G2021 those G2192 who had G4190 the evil G4151 spirits G3686 the name G2962 of the Lord G2424 Jesus, G3004 saying, G3726 "We adjure G5209 you G2424 by Jesus G3739 whom G3972 Paul G2784 preaches."
14 G1161 There G2258 were G5100 G2033 seven G5207 sons G4630 of G4630 one Sceva, G2453 a Jewish G749 chief priest, G4160 who did G5124 this.
15 G1161 The G4190 evil G4151 spirit G611 answered, G2036 G2424 "Jesus G1097 I know, G2532 and G3972 Paul G1987 I know, G1161 but G5101 who G2075 are G5210 you?"
16 G2532 The G444 man G1722 in G3739 whom G4190 the evil G4151 spirit G2258 was G2177 leaped G1909 on G846 them, G2532 and G2634 overpowered G846 them, G2480 and prevailed G2596 against G846 them, G5620 so that G1628 they fled G1537 out of G1565 that G3624 house G1131 naked G2532 and G5135 wounded.
17 G1161 G5124 This G1096 became G1110 known G3956 to all, G2453 both Jews G2532 and G1672 Greeks, G5037 who G2730 lived G2181 at Ephesus. G2532 G5401 Fear G1968 fell G1909 on G846 them G3956 all, G2532 and G3686 the name G2962 of the Lord G2424 Jesus G3170 was magnified.
18 G4183 Many G5037 also G3588 of those who G4100 had believed G2064 came, G1843 confessing, G2532 and G312 declaring G846 their G4234 deeds.
19 G2425 Many G3588 of those G4238 who practiced G4021 magical arts G4851 brought their G976 books G4851 together G2618 and burned them G1799 in the sight G3956 of all. G2532 They G4860 counted G846 their G5092 price, G2532 and G2147 found G4002 it to be fifty G3461 thousand G694 pieces of silver.
20 G3779 So G2596 G3056 the word G2962 of the Lord G837 was growing G2532 and G2480 becoming G2904 mighty.
21 G5613 Now after G5023 these things G4137 had ended, G3972 Paul G5087 determined G1722 in G4151 the spirit, G1330 when he had passed through G3109 Macedonia G2532 and G882 Achaia, G4198 to go G1519 to G2419 Jerusalem, G3754 saying, G3326 "After G3165 I G1096 have been G1563 there, G3165 I G1163 must G2532 also G1492 see G4516 Rome."
22 G1161 Having G649 sent G1519 into G3109 Macedonia G1417 two G3588 of those G1247 who served G846 him, G5095 Timothy G2532 and G2037 Erastus, G1907 he G846 himself G1907 stayed G1519 in G773 Asia G5550 for a while.
23 G1161 G2596 About G1565 that G2540 time G1096 there arose G3756 no G3641 small G5017 stir G4012 concerning G3598 the Way.
24 G1063 For G5100 a certain G3686 man named G1216 Demetrius, G695 a silversmith, G4160 who made G693 silver G3485 shrines G735 of Artemis, G3930 brought G3756 no G3641 little G2039 business G5079 to the craftsmen,
25 G3739 whom G4867 he gathered together, G2532 with G2040 the workmen G4012 of G5108 like occupation, G2036 and said, G435 "Sirs, G1987 you know G3754 that G1537 by G3778 this G2039 business G2076 we have G2257 our G2142 wealth.
26 G2532 You G2334 see G2532 and G191 hear, G3754 that G3756 not G2181 at Ephesus G3440 alone, G235 but G4975 almost G1223 throughout G3956 all G773 Asia, G3778 this G3972 Paul G3982 has persuaded G3179 and turned away G2425 many G3793 people, G3004 saying G3754 that G1526 they are G3756 no G2316 gods, G1526 that are G1096 made G5495 with hands.
27 G1161 G3756 Not G3440 only G2793 is there danger G1161 that G5124 this G2254 our G3313 trade G2064 come G1519 into G557 disrepute, G235 but G2532 also G3588 that the G2411 temple G3173 of the great G2299 goddess G735 Artemis G1519 will be counted G1161 as nothing, G2532 and G846 her G3168 majesty G2507 destroyed, G3739 whom G3650 all G773 Asia G2532 and G3625 the world G4576 worships."
28 G1161 When G191 they heard G1096 this they were G4134 filled G2372 with anger, G2532 and G2896 cried out, G3004 saying, G3173 "Great G735 is Artemis G2180 of the Ephesians!"
29 G2532 The G3650 whole G4172 city G4130 was filled G4799 with confusion, G5037 and G3729 they rushed G3661 with one accord G1519 into G2302 the theater, G4884 having seized G1050 Gaius G2532 and G708 Aristarchus, G3110 men of Macedonia, G3972 Paul's G4898 companions in travel.
30 G1161 When G3972 Paul G1014 wanted G1525 to enter in G1519 to G1218 the people, G3101 the disciples G3756 didn't G1439 allow G846 him.
31 G1161 G5100 Certain G775 also of the Asiarchs, G5607 being G846 his G5384 friends, G3992 sent G4314 to G846 him G3870 and begged G846 him G3361 not G1438 to venture G1519 into G2302 the theater.
32 G243 Some G3767 therefore G2896 cried one thing, G3303 and G243 some G5100 another, G1063 for G1577 the assembly G2258 was G4797 in confusion. G2532 G4119 Most G3756 of them didn't G1492 know G5101 G1752 why G4905 they had come together.
33 G1161 They G4264 brought G223 Alexander G1537 out of G3793 the multitude, G2453 the Jews G4261 putting G846 him G4261 forward. G223 Alexander G2678 beckoned G5495 with his hand, G1161 and G2309 would have G626 made a defense G1218 to the people.
34 G1161 But G1921 when they perceived G3754 that G2076 he was G1537 a Jew, G3956 all G1096 with G1520 one G5456 voice G5613 for a time G1909 of G1417 about two G5610 hours G2896 cried out, G3173 "Great G735 is Artemis G2180 of the Ephesians!"
35 G1122 When the town clerk G2687 had quieted G3793 the multitude, G5346 he said, G435 "You men G1063 of Ephesus, G5101 what G444 man G2076 is there G3739 who G3756 doesn't G1097 know G3739 that G4172 the city G2180 of the Ephesians G5607 is G3511 temple keeper G3173 of the great G2299 goddess G735 Artemis, G2532 and G1356 of the G1356 image which fell down from Zeus?
36 G5607 Seeing G3767 then that G5130 these things G368 can't be denied, G5209 you G2076 G1163 ought G5225 to be G2687 quiet, G2532 and G4238 to do G3367 nothing G4312 rash.
37 G1063 For G5128 you have brought these G435 men G71 here, G3588 who are G3777 neither G2417 robbers of temples G3777 nor G987 blasphemers G5216 of your G2299 goddess.
38 G1487 If G3303 G3767 therefore G1216 Demetrius G2532 and G5079 the craftsmen G3588 who are G4862 with G846 him G2192 have G3056 a matter G4314 against G5100 anyone, G60 the courts G71 are open, G2532 and G1526 there are G446 proconsuls. G1458 Let them press charges G240 against one another.
39 G1161 But G1487 if G1934 you seek G5100 anything G4012 about G2087 other matters, G1956 it will be settled G1722 in G1772 the regular G1577 assembly.
40 G1063 For G2793 indeed we are in danger G2532 G1458 of being accused G4012 concerning G4594 this day's G4714 riot, G5225 there being G3367 no G159 cause. Concerning G3739 it, G1410 we wouldn't be able G591 to give G3056 an account G4012 of G3778 this G4963 commotion."
