1 G1161 And G1722 in G5025 those G2250 days G4129 0 , when the number G3101 of the disciples G4129 [G5723] was multiplied G1096 [G5633] , there arose G1112 a murmuring G1675 of the Grecians G4314 against G1445 the Hebrews G3754 , because G846 their G5503 widows G3865 [G5712] were neglected G1722 in G2522 the daily G1248 ministration.
2 G1161 Then G1427 the twelve G4341 [G5666] called G4128 the multitude G3101 of the disciples G2036 [G5627] , and said G2076 [G5748] , It is G3756 not G701 desirable G2248 that we G2641 [G5660] should leave G3056 the word G2316 of God G1247 [G5721] , and serve G5132 tables.
3 G3767 Therefore G80 , brethren G1980 [G5663] , look ye out G1537 among G5216 you G2033 seven G435 men G3140 [G5746] of honest report G4134 , full G40 of the Holy G4151 Spirit G2532 and G4678 wisdom G3739 , whom G2525 [G5692] we may appoint G1909 over G5026 this G5532 business.
4 G1161 But G2249 we G4342 [G5692] will give ourselves continually G4335 to prayer G2532 , and G1248 to the ministry G3056 of the word.
5 G2532 And G3056 the saying G700 G1799 [G5656] pleased G3956 the whole G4128 multitude G2532 : and G1586 [G5668] they chose G4736 Stephen G435 , a man G4134 full G4102 of faith G2532 and G40 of the Holy G4151 Spirit G2532 , and G5376 Philip G2532 , and G4402 Prochorus G2532 , and G3527 Nicanor G2532 , and G5096 Timon G2532 , and G3937 Parmenas G2532 , and G3532 Nicolas G4339 a proselyte G491 of Antioch:
6 G3739 Whom G2476 [G5627] they set G1799 before G652 the apostles G2532 : and G4336 [G5666] when they had prayed G2007 0 , they laid G5495 their hands G2007 [G5656] on G846 them.
7 G2532 And G3056 the word G2316 of God G837 [G5707] increased G2532 ; and G706 the number G3101 of the disciples G4129 [G5712] multiplied G1722 in G2419 Jerusalem G4970 greatly G5037 ; and G4183 a great G3793 company G2409 of the priests G5219 [G5707] were obedient G4102 to the faith.
8 G1161 And G4736 Stephen G4134 , full G4102 of faith G2532 and G1411 power G4160 [G5707] , performed G3173 great G5059 wonders G2532 and G4592 miracles G1722 among G2992 the people.
9 G1161 Then G450 [G5656] there arose G5100 certain G1537 of G4864 the synagogue G3588 , which G3004 [G5746] is called G3032 the synagogue of the Libertines G2532 , and G2956 Cyrenians G2532 , and G221 Alexandrians G2532 , and G575 of them of G2791 Cilicia G2532 and G773 of Asia G4802 [G5723] , disputing G4736 with Stephen.
10 G2532 And G2480 0 they were G3756 not G2480 [G5707] able G436 [G5629] to resist G4678 the wisdom G2532 and G4151 the spirit G3739 by which G2980 [G5707] he spoke.
11 G5119 Then G5260 [G5627] they secretly induced G435 men G3004 [G5723] , who said G3754 , G191 [G5754] We have heard G846 him G2980 [G5723] speak G989 blasphemous G4487 words G1519 against G3475 Moses G2532 , and G2316 against God.
12 G5037 And G4787 [G5656] they stirred up G2992 the people G2532 , and G4245 the elders G2532 , and G1122 the scribes G2532 , and G2186 [G5631] came upon G4884 [G5656] him, and caught G846 him G2532 , and G71 [G5627] brought G1519 him to G4892 the council,
13 G5037 And G2476 [G5627] set up G5571 false G3144 witnesses G3004 [G5723] , who said G5127 , This G444 man G3973 [G5731] ceaseth G3756 not G2980 [G5723] to speak G989 blasphemous G4487 words G2596 against G3778 this G40 holy G5117 place G2532 , and G3551 the law:
14 G1063 For G191 [G5754] we have heard G846 him G3004 [G5723] say G3754 , that G5126 this G2424 Jesus G3480 of Nazareth G2647 [G5692] shall destroy G3778 this G5117 place G2532 , and G236 [G5692] shall change G1485 the customs G3739 which G3475 Moses G3860 [G5656] delivered G2254 to us.
