1 G2532 When G1295 we had escaped, G5119 then G1921 they learned G3754 that G3520 the island G2564 was called G3194 Malta.
2 G1161 The G915 natives G3930 showed G2254 us G3756 G5177 uncommon G5363 kindness; G1063 for G381 they kindled G4443 a fire, G4355 and received G2248 us G3956 all, G1223 because G2186 of the present G5205 rain, G2532 and G1223 because G5592 of the cold.
3 G1161 But G3972 when Paul G4962 had gathered G4128 a bundle G5434 of sticks G2532 and G2007 laid G1909 them on G4443 the fire, G2191 a viper G1831 came G1537 out because of G2329 the heat, G2510 and fastened on G846 his G5495 hand.
4 G5613 When G915 the natives G1492 saw G2342 the G2342 creature G2910 hanging G1537 from G846 his G5495 hand, G3004 they said G4314 one G240 to another, G3843 "No doubt G3778 this G444 man G2076 is G5406 a murderer, G3739 whom, G1295 though he has escaped G1537 from the G2281 sea, G1349 yet Justice G3756 has not G1439 allowed G2198 to live."
5 G3303 However G660 he shook off G2342 the creature G1519 into G4442 the fire, G3958 and G3762 wasn't G2556 harmed.
6 G1161 But G4328 they expected G846 that he G3195 would G4092 have swollen G2228 or G2667 fallen down G3498 dead G869 suddenly, G1161 but G846 when they G4328 watched G1909 for G4183 a long time G2532 and G4328 saw G3367 nothing G824 bad G1096 happen G1519 to G846 him, G3328 they changed their minds, G3004 and said that G846 he G1511 was G2316 a god.
7 G1722 Now in G1565 the G5117 neighborhood G5225 of that place were G5564 lands G4012 belonging G4413 to the chief man G3520 of the island, G3686 named G4196 Publius, G3739 who G324 received G2248 us, G5390 and courteously G3579 entertained us G5140 for three G2250 days.
8 G1161 It G1096 happened G3962 that the father G4196 of Publius G2621 lay G4912 sick G4446 of fever G2532 and G1420 dysentery. G3972 Paul G1525 entered in G4314 to G3739 him, G4336 prayed, G2532 and G2007 laying G5495 his hands G846 on him, G2390 healed G846 him.
9 G3767 Then G5127 when this G1096 was done, G3062 the rest G2532 also G3588 who G2192 had G769 diseases G1722 in G3520 the island G4334 came, G2532 and G2323 were cured.
10 G3739 They G2532 also G5091 honored G2248 us G4183 with many G5092 honors, G2532 and G321 when we sailed, G2007 they put on board G3588 the things G4314 that we G5532 needed.
11 G1161 G3326 After G5140 three G3376 months, G321 we set sail G1722 in G4143 a ship G222 of Alexandria G3914 which had wintered G1722 in G3520 the island, G3902 whose sign G1359 was "The Twin Brothers."
13 G3606 From there G4022 we circled G2658 around and arrived G1519 at G4484 Rhegium. G2532 G3326 After G1520 one G2250 day, G3558 a south wind G1920 sprang up, G1206 and on the second day G2064 we came G1519 to G4223 Puteoli,
14 G3757 where G2147 we found G80 brothers, G3870 and were entreated G1961 to stay G1909 with G846 them G2033 for seven G2250 days. G2532 G3779 So G2064 we came G1519 to G4516 Rome.
15 G2547 From there G80 the brothers, G191 when they heard G4012 of G2257 us, G1831 came G1519 to G529 meet G2254 us G891 as far as G5410 The Market G675 of Appius G2532 and G5140 The Three G4999 Taverns. G3739 When G3972 Paul G1492 saw G2168 them, he thanked G2316 God, G2983 and took G2294 courage.
16 G1161 G3753 When G2064 we entered G1519 into G4516 Rome, G1543 the centurion G3860 delivered G1198 the prisoners G4759 to the captain of the guard, G1161 but G3972 Paul G2010 was allowed G3306 to stay G2596 by G1438 himself G4862 with G4757 the soldier G5442 who guarded G846 him.
17 G1161 It G1096 happened G3326 that after G5140 three G2250 days G3972 Paul G4779 called G4779 together G4413 those who were the leaders G2453 of the Jews. G1161 G5607 When G846 they had G4779 come together, G3004 he said G4314 to G846 them, G1473 "I, G80 brothers, G1473 though I G4160 had done G3762 nothing G1727 against G2992 the people, G2228 or G1485 the customs G3971 of our fathers, G3860 still was delivered G1198 prisoner G1537 from G2414 Jerusalem G1519 into G5495 the hands G4514 of the Romans,
18 G3748 who, G350 when they had examined G3165 me, G1014 desired G630 to set G630 me free, G1223 because G5225 there was G3367 no G156 cause G2288 of death G1722 in G1698 me.
19 G1161 But G2453 when the Jews G483 spoke against G315 it, I was constrained G1941 to appeal G2541 to Caesar, G3756 not G5613 that G2192 I had G5100 anything G2723 about G2723 which to accuse G3450 my G1484 nation.
20 G1223 For G3778 this G156 cause G3767 therefore G3870 I asked G1492 to see G5209 you G2532 and G4354 to speak with G1063 you. For G1752 because G1680 of the hope G2474 of Israel G4029 I am bound with G3778 this G254 chain."
21 G1161 They G2036 said G4314 to G846 him, G2249 "We G3777 neither G1209 received G1121 letters G575 from G2449 Judea G4012 concerning G4675 you, G3777 nor G5100 did any G80 of the brothers G3854 come G518 here and report G2228 or G2980 speak G5100 any G4190 evil G4012 of G4675 you.
22 G1161 But G515 we desire G191 to hear G3844 from G4675 you G3739 what G5426 you think. G1063 For, G3303 as G4012 concerning G3778 this G139 sect, G1110 it is known G2254 to us G3754 that G3837 everywhere G2076 it is G483 spoken against."
23 G1161 When G5021 they had appointed G846 him G2250 a day, G4119 many G2240 people came G4314 to G846 him G1519 at G3578 his lodging. G1620 He explained G3739 to them, G1263 testifying G932 about the Kingdom G2316 of God, G5037 and G3982 persuading G846 them G4012 concerning G2424 Jesus, G5037 both G3551 from the law G3475 of Moses G2532 and G575 from G4396 the prophets, G575 from G4404 morning G2193 until G2073 evening.
24 G3588 Some G3982 believed G3588 the things G3004 which were spoken, G1161 and G3588 some G569 disbelieved.
25 G5607 When G800 they didn't G4314 agree among G240 themselves, G630 they departed G3972 after Paul G2036 had spoken G1520 one G3754 word, G40 "The Holy G4151 Spirit G2980 spoke G2573 rightly G1223 through G2268 Isaiah, G4396 the prophet, G4314 to G2257 our G3962 fathers,
26 G3004 saying, G4198 ‘Go G4314 to G5126 this G2992 people, G2532 and G2036 say, G3361 G189 in hearing, G4920 you will G191 hear, G3756 but will in no G4920 way understand. G3361 G3361 G991 In seeing, G4920 you will G991 see, G3361 G3756 but will in no G1492 way perceive.
27 G1063 For G5127 this G2992 people's G2588 heart G3975 has grown callous. G2532 G3775 Their ears G191 are G917 dull of G191 hearing. G2532 G846 Their G3788 eyes G2576 they have closed. G3379 Lest G1492 they should see G3788 with G3788 their eyes, G2532 G191 hear G3775 with G3775 their ears, G2532 G4920 understand G2588 with G2588 their heart, G2532 and G1994 would turn again, G2532 and G2390 I would heal G846 them.'
28 G2077 "Be it G1110 known G3767 therefore G5213 to you, G3754 that G4992 the salvation G2316 of God G649 is sent G1484 to the nations. G846 They G2532 will also G191 listen."
29 G2532 When G846 he G2036 had said G5023 these words, G2453 the Jews G565 departed, G2192 having G4183 a great G4803 dispute G1722 among G1438 themselves.
30 G1161 G3972 Paul G3306 stayed G1333 two G3650 whole G1333 years G1722 in G2398 his own G3410 rented house, G2532 and G588 received G3956 all G1531 who were coming G4314 to G846 him,
