2 G1161 He G5346 said, G435 G80 "Brothers G1161 and G3962 fathers, G191 listen. G2316 The God G1391 of glory G3700 appeared G3962 to G2257 our G3962 father G11 Abraham, G5607 when he was G1722 in G3318 Mesopotamia, G4250 before G846 he G2730 lived G1722 in G5488 Haran,
3 G2532 and G2036 said G4314 to G846 him, G1831 ‘Get out G1537 of G4675 your G1093 land, G2532 and G1537 from G4675 your G4772 relatives, G2532 and G1204 come G1519 into G1093 a land G3739 which G302 G1166 I will show G4671 you.'
4 G5119 Then G1831 he came out G1537 of G1093 the land G1537 of G5466 the Chaldaeans, G2730 and lived G1722 in G5488 Haran. G2547 From there, G3326 when G846 his G3962 father G599 was dead, G3351 God moved G846 him G1519 into G3778 this G1093 land, G1519 where G5210 you G3568 are now G2730 living.
5 G2532 He G1325 gave G846 him G3761 no G2817 inheritance G1722 in G846 it, G3761 no, not G968 so much as to set G4228 his foot G4228 on. G2532 G1861 He promised G1325 that he would give G1325 it G846 to him G1519 for G2697 a possession, G2532 and G846 to his G4690 seed G3326 after G846 him, G846 when he G5607 still had G3756 no G5043 child.
6 G1161 G2316 God G2980 spoke G3779 in this way: G3754 that G846 his G4690 seed G2071 would G3941 live G1722 as aliens in G245 a strange G1093 land, G2532 and G846 that they G1402 would be G1402 enslaved G2532 and G2559 mistreated G5071 for four hundred G2094 years.
7 G2532 G1473 ‘I G2919 will G2919 judge G1484 the nation G3739 to which G1398 they will be in bondage,' G2036 said G2316 God, G2532 ‘and G3326 after G5023 that G1831 will they come out, G2532 and G3000 serve G3427 me G1722 in G5129 this G5117 place.'
8 G2532 He G1325 gave G846 him G1242 the covenant G4061 of circumcision. G2532 G3779 So G1080 Abraham became the father G2464 of Isaac, G2532 and G4059 circumcised G846 him G3590 the eighth G2250 day. G2464 Isaac G1080 became the father G2384 of Jacob, G2532 and G2384 Jacob G1427 became the father of the twelve G3966 patriarchs.
9 G2532 "The G3966 patriarchs, G2206 moved with jealousy G2501 against Joseph, G591 sold G1519 him into G125 Egypt. G2532 G2316 God G2258 was G3326 with G846 him,
10 G2532 and G1807 delivered G846 him G1537 out of G3956 all G846 his G2347 afflictions, G2532 and G1325 gave G846 him G5485 favor G2532 and G4678 wisdom G5328 before Pharaoh, G935 king G1726 of G125 Egypt. G2532 He G2525 made G846 him G2233 governor G1909 over G125 Egypt G2532 and G3650 all G846 his G3624 house.
11 G1161 Now G3042 a famine G2064 came G1909 over G3650 all G1093 the land G125 of Egypt G2532 and G5477 Canaan, G2532 and G3173 great G2347 affliction. G2532 G2257 Our G3962 fathers G2147 found G3756 no G5527 food.
12 G1161 But G191 when G2384 Jacob G191 heard G5607 that there was G4621 grain G1722 in G125 Egypt, G1821 he sent out G2257 our G3962 fathers G4412 the first time.
13 G2532 G1722 On G1208 the second G2501 time Joseph G319 was made known G80 to G846 his G80 brothers, G2532 and G2501 Joseph's G1085 race G1096 was G5318 revealed G5328 to Pharaoh.
14 G1161 G2501 Joseph G649 sent, G1161 and G3333 summoned G1722 G2384 Jacob, G846 his G3962 father, G2532 and G3956 all G846 his G4772 relatives, G1440 seventy - G4002 five G5590 souls.
15 G1161 G2384 Jacob G2597 went down G1519 into G125 Egypt, G2532 and G846 he G5053 died, G2532 himself and G2257 our G3962 fathers,
16 G2532 and G3346 they were brought back G1519 to G4966 Shechem, G2532 and G5087 laid G1722 in G3418 the tomb G3739 that G11 Abraham G5608 bought G5092 for a price G694 in silver G5207 from the children G3844 of G1697 Hamor G3588 of G4966 Shechem.
17 G1161 "But G2531 as G5550 the time G1860 of the promise G1448 came close G3739 which G2316 God G3660 had sworn G11 to Abraham, G2992 the people G837 grew G2532 and G4129 multiplied G1722 in G125 Egypt,
18 G891 until G3757 G450 there arose G2087 a different G935 king, G3739 who G3756 didn't G1492 know G2501 Joseph.
19 G3778 The same G2686 took advantage G1085 of G2257 our G1085 race, G2559 and mistreated G2257 our G3962 fathers, G4160 and forced G1570 them to throw out G846 their G1025 babies, G1519 so that G2225 they wouldn't G3361 G2225 stay alive.
20 G1722 At G3739 that G2540 time G3475 Moses G1080 was born, G2532 and G2258 was G2316 exceedingly G791 handsome. G2532 He G397 was nourished G5140 three G3376 months G1722 in G846 his G3962 father's G3624 house.
21 G1161 When G846 he G1620 was thrown out, G5328 Pharaoh's G2364 daughter G337 took G846 him G337 up, G2532 and G397 reared G846 him G1519 as G1438 her own G5207 son.
22 G2532 G3475 Moses G3811 was instructed G3956 in all G4678 the wisdom G124 of the Egyptians. G1161 He G2258 was G1415 mighty G1722 in G3056 his words G2532 and G1722 G2041 works.
23 G1161 But G5613 when G846 he G4137 was G5063 forty years G5550 old, G305 it came G1909 into G846 his G2588 heart G1980 to visit G846 his G80 brothers, G5207 the children G2474 of Israel.
24 G2532 G1492 Seeing G5100 one G91 of them suffer wrong, G292 he defended G2532 him, and G1557 avenged G4160 G2669 him who was oppressed, G3960 striking G124 the Egyptian.
25 G1161 He G3543 supposed G846 that his G80 brothers G4920 understood G3754 that G2316 God, G1223 by G846 his G5495 hand, G846 was giving them G1325 deliverance; G4991 G1161 but G3756 they didn't G4920 understand.
26 G5037 "The G2250 day G1966 following, G3700 he appeared G846 to them G3164 as they fought, G2532 and G4900 urged G846 them G1519 to be at G1515 peace G4900 again, G2036 saying, G435 ‘Sirs, G5210 you G2075 are G80 brothers. G2444 Why G91 do you wrong G240 one another?'
27 G1161 But G91 he who did G4139 his neighbor G91 wrong G683 pushed G846 him G683 away, G2036 saying, G5101 ‘Who G2525 made G4571 you G758 a ruler G2532 and G1348 a judge G1909 over G2248 us?
28 G4771 Do you G3361 want G2309 G337 to kill G3165 me, G3739 as G4771 you G337 killed G124 the Egyptian G5504 yesterday?'
29 G1161 G3475 Moses G5343 fled G1722 at G5129 this G3056 saying, G2532 and G1096 became G3941 a stranger G1722 in G1093 the land G3099 of Midian, G3757 where G1080 he became the father G1417 of two G5207 sons.
30 G2532 G4137 "When G5062 forty G2094 years G4137 were fulfilled, G32 an angel G2962 of the Lord G3700 appeared G846 to him G1722 in G2048 the wilderness G3735 of Mount G4614 Sinai, G1722 in G5395 a flame G4442 of fire G942 in a bush.
31 G1161 When G3475 Moses G1492 saw G2296 it, he wondered G3705 at the sight. G1161 As G4334 he came close G2657 to see, G5456 a voice G2962 of the Lord G1096 came G4314 to G846 him,
32 G1473 ‘I G2316 am the God G3962 of G4675 your G3962 fathers, G2316 the God G11 of Abraham, G2316 the God G2464 of Isaac, G2532 and G2316 the God G2384 of Jacob.' G1161 G3475 Moses G1096 trembled, G2532 and G5111 dared G3756 not G2657 look.
33 G1161 The G2962 Lord G2036 said G846 to him, G4675 ‘Take your G5266 sandals G3089 off G4228 of G4675 your G4228 feet, G1063 for G5117 the place G1722 where G3739 G2476 you stand G2076 is G40 holy G1093 ground.
34 G1492 I have surely G1492 seen G2561 the affliction G2992 of G3450 my G2992 people G3588 that G1722 is in G125 Egypt, G2532 and G191 have heard G846 their G4726 groaning. G2532 G2597 I have come down G1807 to deliver G846 them. G2532 G3568 Now G1204 come, G649 I will send G4571 you G1519 into G125 Egypt.'
35 G5126 "This G3475 Moses, G3739 whom G720 they refused, G2036 saying, G5101 ‘Who G2525 made G4571 you G758 a ruler G2532 and G1348 a judge?' G2316 — God G649 has G649 sent G5126 him G758 as both a ruler G2532 and G3086 a deliverer G1722 by G5495 the hand G32 of the angel G3588 who G3700 appeared G846 to him G1722 in G942 the bush.
36 G3778 This man G1806 led G846 them G1806 out, G4160 having worked G5059 wonders G2532 and G4592 signs G1722 in G1093 G125 Egypt, G2532 G1722 in G2281 the G2063 Red G2281 Sea, G2532 and G1722 in G2048 the wilderness G5062 for forty G2094 years.
37 G3778 This G2076 is G3778 that G3475 Moses, G3778 who G2036 said G5207 to the children G2474 of Israel, G2962 ‘The Lord G5216 our G2316 God G450 will G450 raise up G4396 a prophet G5213 for you G1537 from G5216 among your G80 brothers, G5613 like G1691 me.'
38 G3778 This G2076 is G1096 he who was G1722 in G1577 the assembly G1722 in G2048 the wilderness G3326 with G32 the angel G3588 that G2980 spoke G846 to him G1722 on G3735 Mount G4614 Sinai, G2532 and G2257 with our G3962 fathers, G3739 who G1209 received G2198 living G3051 oracles G1325 to give G2254 to us,
39 G3739 to whom G2257 our G3962 fathers G2309 wouldn't G3756 G1096 be G5255 obedient, G235 but G683 rejected G683 him, G2532 and G4762 turned back G2588 in G846 their G2588 hearts G1519 to G125 Egypt,
40 G2036 saying G3739 to G2 Aaron, G4160 ‘Make G2254 us G2316 gods G4313 that will go before G2257 us, G1063 for G3778 as for this G3475 Moses, G3739 who G1806 led G2248 us G1806 out G1537 of G1093 the land G125 of Egypt, G3756 we don't G1492 know G5101 what G1096 has become G846 of him.'
41 G2532 They G3447 made a calf G1722 in G1565 those G2250 days, G2532 and G321 brought G2378 a sacrifice G1497 to the idol, G2532 and G2165 rejoiced G1722 in G2041 the works G846 of their G5495 hands.
42 G1161 But G2316 God G4762 turned, G2532 and G3860 gave G846 them G3860 up G3000 to serve G4756 the army G3772 of the sky, G2531 as G1125 it is written G1722 in G976 the book G4396 of the prophets, G4374 ‘Did you offer G3427 to me G4968 slain animals G2532 and G2378 sacrifices G5062 forty G2094 years G1722 in G2048 the wilderness, G3624 O house G3361 of Israel?
43 G2532 You G353 took up G4633 the tabernacle G2316 of G3434 Moloch, G798 the star G2316 of G5216 your G2316 god G4481 Rephan, G5179 the figures G3739 which G4160 you made G4352 to worship. G846 G2532 I G3351 will carry G5209 you G3351 away G1900 beyond G897 Babylon.'
44 G2257 "Our G3962 fathers G2258 had G4633 the tabernacle G3142 of the testimony G1722 in G2048 the wilderness, G2531 even as G2980 he who spoke G3475 to Moses G1299 commanded G4160 him to make G846 it G2596 according to G5179 the pattern G3739 that G3708 he had seen;
45 G3739 which G2532 also G2257 our G3962 fathers, G1237 in their turn, G1521 brought in G3326 with G2424 Joshua G1722 when they entered into G2697 the possession G1484 of the nations, G3739 whom G2316 God G1856 drove out G575 before G4383 the face G3962 of G2257 our G3962 fathers, G2193 to G2250 the days G1138 of David,
46 G3739 who G2147 found G5485 favor G1799 in the sight of G2316 God, G2532 and G154 asked G2147 to find G4638 a habitation G2316 for the God G2384 of Jacob.
48 G235 However, G5310 the Most High G3756 doesn't G2730 dwell G1722 in G3485 temples G5499 made with hands, G2531 as G4396 the prophet G3004 says,
49 G3772 ‘heaven G3427 is my G2362 throne, G1161 and G1093 the earth G3450 a G4228 G5286 footstool G5101 for my feet. What G3624 kind of house G3618 will you build G3427 me?' G3004 says G2962 the Lord; G2228 ‘or G5101 what G5117 is the place G2663 of G3450 my G2663 rest?
51 G5210 "You G4644 stiff-necked G2532 and G564 uncircumcised G2588 in heart G2532 and G3775 ears, G496 you G104 always G496 resist G4151 the G40 Holy G4151 Spirit! G5613 As G5216 your G3962 fathers G2532 did, so G5210 you do.
52 G5101 Which G4396 of the prophets G1377 didn't G3756 G5216 your G3962 fathers G1377 persecute? G2532 They G615 killed G3588 those who G4293 foretold G4012 the G1660 coming G1342 of the Righteous One, G3739 of whom G5210 you G3568 have now G1096 become G4273 betrayers G2532 and G5406 murderers.
53 G3748 You G2983 received G3551 the law G1296 as it was ordained G1519 by G32 angels, G2532 and G5442 didn't G3756 G5442 keep it!"
54 G1161 Now when G191 they heard G5023 these things, G1282 they were cut G846 to the heart, G2532 and G1031 they gnashed G1909 at G846 him G3599 with G3599 their teeth.
55 G1161 But G5225 he, being G4134 full G4151 of the G40 Holy G4151 Spirit, G816 looked G1519 up G816 steadfastly G1519 into G3772 heaven, G2532 and G1492 saw G1391 the glory G2316 of God, G2532 and G2424 Jesus G2476 standing G1537 on G1188 the right hand G2316 of God,
56 G2532 and G2036 said, G2400 "Behold, G2334 I see G3772 the heavens G455 opened, G2532 and G5207 the Son G444 of Man G2476 standing G1537 at G1188 the right hand G2316 of God!"
57 G1161 But G2896 they cried out G5456 with a G3173 loud G5456 voice, G4912 and stopped G846 their G3775 ears, G2532 and G3729 rushed G1909 at G846 him G3661 with one accord.
58 G2532 They G1544 threw G1854 him out G4172 of the city, G2532 and G3036 stoned G2532 him. The G3144 witnesses G659 placed G846 their G2440 garments G3844 at G4228 the feet G3494 of a young man G2564 named G4569 Saul.
59 G2532 They G3036 stoned G4736 Stephen G1941 as he called out, G2532 G3004 saying, G2962 "Lord G2424 Jesus, G1209 receive G3450 my G4151 spirit!"
