  1 G1161 Now G1353 [G5660] when they had passed through G295 Amphipolis G2532 and G624 Apollonia, G2064 [G5627] they came G1519 to G2332 Thessalonica, G3699 where G2258 [G5713] was G4864 a synagogue G2453 of the Judeans:
  2 G1161 And G3972 Paul, G2596 as G1486 [G5756] his manner was, G1525 [G5627] went in G4314 to G846 them, G2532 G1909 and G5140 on three G4521 sabbaths G1256 [G5711] dialogued G846 with them G575 from G1124 the scriptures,
  3 G1272 [G5723] Opening G2532 and G3908 [G5734] alleging, G3754 that G1163 [G5713] it was needful G5547 that Anointed G3958 [G5629] should suffer, G2532 and G450 [G5629] rise again G1537 from G3498 the dead; G2532 and G3754 that G3778 this G2424 Jesus, G3739 whom G1473 I G2605 [G5719] announce G5213 to you, G2076 [G5748] is G5547 Anointed.
  4 G2532 And G5100 some G1537 of G846 them G3982 [G5681] were persuaded, G2532 and G4345 [G5681] consorted G3972 with Paul G2532 and G4609 Silas; G5037 and G4128 a multitude G4183 of many G4576 [G5740] of the revering G1672 Hellenes, G5037 and G3588 of the G4413 foremost G1135 women G3756 not G3641 a few.
  5 G1161 But G3588 the G2453 Judeans G544 [G5723] who believed not, G2206 [G5660] moved with zeal, G2532 and G4355 [G5642] took to them G5100 certain G4190 wicked G435 fellows G60 of the baser sort, G2532 and G3792 [G5660] having gathered a crowd, G2350 [G5707] made a disruption G3588 in the G4172 city G5037 and G2186 [G5631] having stood by G5037 also G3614 the house G2394 of Jason, G2212 [G5707] sought G71 [G5629] to lead G846 them G1519 unto G3588 to the G1218 populace.
  6 G1161 And G2147 [G5631] having found G846 them G3361 not, G4951 [G5707] they drew G2394 Jason G2532 and G5100 certain G80 brethren G1909 to G3588 the G4173 rulers of the city, G994 [G5723] crying G3754 that, G3778 These G3588   G387 0 that have turned G3588 the G3625 inhabitable world G387 [G5660] upside down G3918 [G5748] have come G1759 here G2532 also;
  7 G3739 Whom G2394 Jason G5264 [G5766] hath received: G2532 and G3778 these G3956 all G4238 [G5719] do G561 contrary G1378 to the decrees G2541 of Caesar, G3004 [G5723] saying G1511 [G5750] that there is G2087 another G935 king, G2424 one Jesus.
  8 G1161 And G5015 [G5656] they disturbed G3588 the G3793 crowd G2532 and G4173 the rulers of the city, G191 [G5723] hearing G5023 these things.
  9 G2532 And G2983 [G5631] having taken G2425 sufficient security G3844 from G3588   G2394 Jason, G2532 and G3588 of the G3062 rest, G630 0 they set G846 them G630 [G5656] loose.
  10 G1161 And G80 the brethren G2112 immediately G1599 G5037 [G5656] sent away G3972 Paul G2532 and G4609 Silas G1223 by G3571 night G1519 to G960 Berea: G3748 who G3854 [G5637] coming G549 [G5713] there went G1519 into G4864 the synagogue G2453 of the Judeans.
  11 G1161   G3778 These G2258 [G5713] were G2104 more noble G1722 than those in G2332 Thessalonica, G3748 in that they G1209 [G5662] received G3056 the word G3326 with G3956 all G4288 readiness of mind, G350 [G5723] and searched G1124 the scriptures G2250 G2596 daily, G1487 whether G5023 those things G2192 [G5722] were G3779 so.
  12 G3767 G3303 Therefore G4183 many G1537 of G846 them G4100 [G5656] believed; G2532 also G2158 of decorous G1135 women G3588 who G1674 were Hellenists, G2532 and G435 of men, G3756 not G3641 a few.
  13 G1161 But G5613 when G2453 the Judeans G575 from G2332 Thessalonica G1097 [G5627] had knowledge G3754 G2532 that G3056 the word G2316 of God G2605 [G5648] was announced G5259 by G3972 Paul G1722 at G960 Berea, G2064 [G5627] they came G2546 there also, G4531 [G5723] wavering G3588 the G3793 crowds.
  14 G1161 And G5119 then G2112 immediately G80 the brethren G1821 [G5656] sent away G3972 Paul G4198 [G5738] to go G5613 as it were G1909 to G2281 the sea: G1161 G5037 but G4609 Silas G2532 and G5095 Timothy G5278 0 abode G1563 there G5278 [G5707] still.
  15 G1161 And G2525 [G5723] they that conducted G3972 Paul G71 [G5627] led G846 him G2193 to G116 Athens: G2532 and G2983 [G5631] receiving G1785 a commandment G4314 to G4609 Silas G2532 and G5095 Timothy G2443 to G2064 [G5632] come G4314 to G846 him G5613 G5033 with all speed, G1826 [G5713] they departed.
  16 G1161 Now G3972 while Paul G1551 [G5740] waited for G846 them G1722 at G116 Athens, G846 his G4151 spirit G3947 [G5712] was stirred G1722 in G846 him, G2334 [G5723] when he saw G4172 the city G5607 [G5752] wholly given G2712 to idolatry.
  17 G3767 G3303 Therefore G1256 [G5711] he dialogued G1722 in G4864 the synagogue G2453 with the Judeans, G2532 and G3588 with the ones G4576 [G5740] revering, G2532 and G1722 in G58 the market G2596 G3956 G2250 daily G4314 with G3909 [G5723] them that met with him.
  18 G1161 Then G5100 certain G5386 philosophers G1946 of the Epicureans, G2532 and G4770 of the Stoics, G4820 [G5707] engaged with G846 him. G2532 And G5100 some G3004 [G5707] said, G5101 What G302 G2309 [G5722] will G3778 this G4691 seed picker G3004 [G5721] say? G1161 and G3588 some others, G1380 [G5719] He seemeth G1511 [G5750] to be G2604 a proclaimer G3581 of strange G1140 demons: G3754 because G2097 [G5710] he announced good news G846 to them G2424 of Jesus, G2532 and G386 the resurrection.
  19 G5037 And G1949 [G5637] they took G846 him, G71 [G5627] and led him G1909 to G697 Areopagus, G3004 [G5723] saying, G1410 [G5736] May G1097 [G5629] we know G5101 what G3778 this G2537 new G1322 teaching G5259 is, of which G4675 thou G2980 [G5746] speakest?
  20 G1063 For G1533 [G5719] thou bringest G5100 certain G3579 [G5723] strange things G1519 to G2257 our G189 ears: G1014 [G5736] we would G1097 [G5629] know G3767 therefore G5101 what G5023 these things G302 G2309 G1511 [G5722] mean.
  21 G1161 (For G3956 all G117 the Athenians G2532 and G3581 strangers G3588 who G1927 [G5723] were there G2119 [G5707] spent their time G1519 in G3762 nothing G2087 else, G2228 but either G3004 [G5721] to tell, G2532 or G191 [G5721] to hear G5100 some G2537 new thing.)
  22 G1161 Then G3972 Paul G2476 [G5685] stood G1722 in G3319 the midst G697 of Mars' hill, G5346 [G5713] and said, G435 Ye men G117 of Athens, G2334 [G5719] I perceive G5613 that G2596 in G3956 all things G5209 ye G1174 are very fearful of the gods.
  23 G1063 For G1330 [G5740] as I passed by, G2532 and G333 [G5723] beheld G5216 your G4574 devotions, G2532 and G2147 [G5627] I found G1041 a shrine G1722 G3739 with this G1924 [G5718] inscription, G57 TO THE UNKNOWN G2316 GOD. G3739 Whom G3767 therefore G50 [G5723] ye ignorantly G2151 [G5719] are pious towards, G5126 him G2605 [G5719] announce G1473 I G5213 to you.
  24 G2316 God G4160 [G5660] that made G2889 the world G2532 and G3956 all things G1722 in G846 it, G3778 seeing that he G5225 [G5723] is G2962 Lord G3772 of heaven G2532 and G1093 earth, G2730 [G5719] dwelleth G3756 not G1722 in G3485 temples G5499 made with hands;
  25 G3761 Neither G2323 [G5743] is worshipped G5259 by G444 men's G5495 hands, G4326 [G5740] as though he needed G5100 any thing, G846 seeing he G1325 [G5723] giveth G3956 to all G2222 life, G2532 and G4157 respiration, G2596 and G3956 all things;
  26 G5037 Also, G1537 from out G1520 of one G129 blood G4160 [G5656] hath made G3956 every G1484 nation G444 of men G2730 [G5721] to dwell G1909 upon G3956 all G3588 the G4383 face G3588 of the G1093 earth, G3724 [G5660] having confirmed G4384 [G5772] prearranged G2540 seasons G2532 and G3588 the G3734 bounds G846 of their G2733 habitation;
  27 G2212 [G5721] That they should seek G2962 the Lord, G1487 if G686 perhaps G5584 [G5659] they might grope G846 after him, G2532 and G2147 [G5630] find him, G2544 though G5225 [G5723] he is G3756 not G3112 far G575 from G1538 every G1520 one G2257 of us:
  28 G1063 For G1722 in G846 him G2198 [G5719] we live, G2532 and G2795 [G5743] move, G2532 and G2070 [G5748] have our being; G5613 as G5100 certain G2532 also G5209 of your G2596 own G4163 poets G2046 [G5758] have said, G1063 For G2070 [G5748] we are G2532 also G5120 his G1085 offspring.
  29 G5225 [G5723] Being G3767 then G1085 the offspring G2316 of God, G3784 [G5719] we ought G3756 not G3543 [G5721] to think G3588 that the G2304 Godhead G1511 [G5750] is G3664 like G5557 gold, G2228 or G696 silver, G2228 or G3037 stone, G5480 an imprint G5078 of a craft, G2532 and G444 man's G1761 pondering.
  30 G3303 G3767 And G5550 the times G52 of this ignorance G2316 God G5237 [G5660] overlooked; G3569 but now G3853 [G5719] commandeth G3956 all G444 men G3837 every where G3340 [G5721] to change their minds:
  31 G1360 Because G2476 [G5656] he hath appointed G2250 a day, G1722 G3739 when G3195 [G5719] he will G2919 [G5721] judge G3588 the G3625 inhabitable world G1722 in G1343 righteousness G1722 by G435 that man G3739 whom G3724 [G5656] he hath confirmed; G3930 [G5631] having furnished G4102 faith G3956 to all men, G450 [G5660] having raised G846 him G1537 from out of G3498 dead ones.
  32 G1161 And G191 [G5660] when they heard G386 of the resurrection G3498 of the dead, G3303 some G5512 [G5707] mocked: G1161 and G2036 [G5627] others said, G191 [G5695] We will hear G4675 thee G3825 again G4012 concerning G5127 this matter.
  33 G2532 G3779 So G3972 Paul G1831 [G5627] departed G1537 from G3319 among G846 them.
  34 G1161 But G5100 certain G435 men G2853 [G5685] joined themselves G846 to him, G4100 [G5656] and believed: G1722 among G3739 G2532 whom G1354 was Dionysius G698 the Areopagite, G2532 and G1135 a woman G3686 named G1152 Damaris, G2532 and G2087 others G4862 with G846 them.

Romans 16:16-19

  16 G782 [G5663] Greet G240 one another G1722 with G40 an holy G5370 kiss. G1577 The congregations G5547 of Anointed G782 [G5736] greet G5209 you.
  17 G1161 Now G3870 [G5719] I beseech G5209 you, G80 brethren, G4648 [G5721] take aim at G4160 [G5723] them who cause G1370 discords G2532 and G4625 trap-sticks G3844 contrary G1322 to the teaching G3739 which G5210 ye G3129 [G5627] have learned; G2532 and G1578 [G5657] avoid G575 G846 them.
  18 G1063 For G5108 they that are such G1398 [G5719] are a slave G3756 not G2257 of our G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Anointed, G235 but G1438 their own G2836 belly; G2532 and G1223 by G5542 good words G2532 and G2129 fair speeches G1818 [G5719] deceive G2588 the hearts G172 of the innocent.
  19 G1063 For G5216 your G5218 obedience G864 [G5633] is come abroad G1519 to G3956 all G5463 [G5719] men. I am glad G3767 therefore G1909 0 on G5213 your G1909 behalf: G1161 but yet G2309 [G5719] I would have G5209 you G4680 wise G1519 to G1511 [G5750] that which is G3303 G18 good, G1161 and G185 unmixed G1519 unto G3588 the G2556 bad.

Jude 1:3

  3 G27 Beloved, G4160 [G5734] when I gave G3956 all G4710 diligence G1125 [G5721] to write G5213 to you G4012 concerning G2839 the common G4991 salvation, G2192 [G5627] I had G318 necessity G1125 [G5658] to write G5213 to you, G3870 [G5723] and exhort G1864 [G5738] you that ye should earnestly contend G4102 for the faith G530 which was once G3860 [G5685] delivered G40 to the holy ones.

Philippians 1:16

  16 G3303 The one G2605 [G5719] announce G5547 Anointed G1537 from G2052 contention, G3756 not G55 sincerely, G3633 [G5740] supposing G2018 [G5721] to add G2347 affliction G3450 to my G1199 bonds:

2 Timothy 3:16

  16 G3956 All G1124 scripture G2315 is given by inspiration of God, G2532 and [G5624] is profitable G4314 for G1319 teaching, G4314 for G1650 reproof, G4314 for G1882 correction, G4314 for G3809 instruction G1722 in G1343 righteousness:

2 Thessalonians 2:15

  15 G686 G3767 Therefore, G80 brethren, G4739 [G5720] stand fast, G2532 and G2902 [G5720] hold G3862 the traditions G3739 which G1321 [G5681] ye have been taught, G1535 whether G1223 by G3056 word, G1535 G1223 or G2257 our G1992 epistle.

Matthew 5:11-12

  11 G3107 { Blessed G2075 [G5748] are ye, G3752 when G3679 [G5661] men shall revile G5209 you, G2532 and G1377 [G5661] persecute G2532 you, and G2036 [G5632] shall say G3956 every G4190 evil G4487 utterance G2596 against G5216 you G5574 [G5730] falsely, G1752 because of G1700 me.}
  12 G5463 [G5720] { Rejoice, G2532 and G21 [G5737] leap for joy: G3754 for G4183 much G5216 is your G3408 wage G1722 in G3772 heaven: G1063 for G3779 so G1377 [G5656] they persecuted G4396 the prophets G3588 who G4253 were before G5216 you.}

  15 G4704 [G5657] Hurry G3936 [G5658] to show G4572 thyself G1384 approved G2316 to God, G2040 a workman G422 that needeth not to be ashamed, G3718 [G5723] rightly dividing G3056 the word G225 of truth.

2 Timothy 2:24-25

  24 G1161 And G1401 the slave G3588 of the G2962 Lord G1163 [G5748] must G3756 not G3164 [G5738] quarrel; G235 but G1511 [G5750] be G2261 affable G4314 to G3956 all men, G1317 apt to teach, G420 enduring bad,
  25 G1722 In G4236 meekness G3811 [G5723] instructing G475 [G5734] those that oppose him; G3379 0 if G2316 God G3379 perhaps G1325 [G5632] will give G846 them G3341 a change of mind G1519 to G1922 the acknowledging G225 of the truth;

Colossians 4:5-6

  5 G4043 [G5720] Walk G1722 in G4678 wisdom G4314 toward G3588 the ones G1854 outside, G1805 [G5734] buying back G3588 the G2540 season.
  6 G5216 Let your G3056 speech G3842 be always G1722 with G5485 grace, G741 [G5772] spiced G217 with salt, G1492 [G5760] that ye may know G4459 how G5209 ye G1163 [G5748] ought G611 [G5738] to answer G1538 every G1520 man.

  9 G472 [G5740] Holding fast G4103 the faithful G3056 word G2596 as G1322 he hath been taught, G2443 that G5600 [G5753] he may be G1415 able G1722 by G5198 [G5723] sound G1319 teaching G2532 both G3870 [G5721] to exhort G2532 and G1651 [G5721] to convict G483 [G5723] those who contradict.

2 Corinthians 10:5

  5 G2507 [G5723] Demolishing G3053 reckonings, G2532 and G3956 every G5313 high thing G1869 [G5734] being exalted G2596 against G3588 the G1108 knowledge G3588   G2316 of God, G2532 and G163 [G5723] bringing into captivity G3956 every G3540 perception G1519 into G3588 the G5218 obedience G3588 of the G5547 Anointed;

2 Timothy 4:1-22

  1 G1473 I G1263 [G5736] charge G3767 thee therefore G1799 before G2316 God, G2532 and G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Anointed, G3588 who G3195 [G5723] shall G2919 [G5721] judge G2198 [G5723] the living G2532 and G3498 the dead G2596 at G846 his G2015 appearing G2532 and G846 his G932 kingdom;
  2 G2784 [G5657] Proclaim G3588 the G3056 word; G2186 [G5628] stand by G2122 opportunely, G171 and inopportunely; G1651 [G5657] reprove, G2008 [G5657] rebuke, G3870 [G5657] exhort G1722 with G3956 all G3115 longsuffering G2532 and G1322 teaching.
  3 G1063 For G2540 the season G2071 [G5704] will come G3753 when G430 0 they will G3756 not G430 [G5695] bear with G5198 [G5723] sound G1319 teaching; G235 but G2596 after G2398 their own G1939 lusts G2002 [G5692] shall they heap up G1438 to themselves G1320 teachers, G2833 [G5746] having itching G189 ears;
  4 G2532 And G3303 G654 [G5692] they shall turn away G189 their ears G575 from G225 the truth, G1161 and G1624 [G5691] shall be turned G1909 to G3454 fables.
  5 G1161 But G3525 [G5720] be sober G4771 thou G1722 in G3956 all things, G2553 [G5657] endure hardships, G4160 [G5657] do G2041 the work G2099 of an announcer of good news, G4135 [G5657] make full proof G4675 of thy G1248 service.
  6 G1063 For G1473 I G4689 0 am G2235 now G4689 [G5743] ready to be offered, G2532 and G3588 the G2540 season G1699 of mine G359 unloosing G2186 [G5758] stands by.
  7 G75 [G5766] I have struggled G2570 a good G73 struggle, G5055 [G5758] I have finished G1408 my course, G5083 [G5758] I have kept G4102 the faith:
  8 G3063 Henceforth G606 [G5736] there is laid up G3427 for me G4735 a crown G1343 of righteousness, G3739 which G2962 the Lord, G1342 the righteous G2923 judge, G591 [G5692] shall give G3427 me G1722 at G1565 that G2250 day: G1161 and G3756 not G1698 to me G3440 only, G235 but G3956 to all them G2532 also G25 [G5761] that love G846 his G2015 appearing.
  9 G4704 [G5657] Hurry G2064 [G5629] to come G4314 to G3165 me G5030 quickly:
  10 G1063 For G1214 Demas G1459 [G5627] hath forsaken G3165 me, G25 [G5660] having loved G3588 this G3568 present G165 age, G2532 and G4198 [G5675] hath departed G1519 to G2332 Thessalonica; G2913 Crescens G1519 to G1053 Galatia, G5103 Titus G1519 to G1149 Dalmatia.
  11 G3065 Luke G3441 only G2076 [G5748] is G3326 with G1700 me. G353 [G5631] Take G3138 Mark, G71 [G5720] and bring him G3326 with G4572 thee: G1063 for G2076 [G5748] he is G2173 useful G3427 to me G1519 in G1248 service.
  12 G1161 And G5190 Tychicus G649 [G5656] have I sent G1519 to G2181 Ephesus.
  13 G5341 The cloke G3739 that G620 [G5627] I left G1722 at G5174 Troas G3844 with G2591 Carpus, G2064 [G5740] when thou comest, G5342 [G5720] bring G2532 with thee, and G975 the books, G3122 but especially G3200 the parchments.
  14 G223 Alexander G5471 the coppersmith G1731 [G5668] did G3427 me G4183 much G2556 bad: G2962 the Lord G591 [G5630] reward G846 him G2596 according to G846 his G2041 works:
  15 G3739 Of whom G5442 [G5732] beware G4771 thou G2532 also; G1063 for G436 0 he hath G3029 exceedingly G436 [G5758] withstood G2251 our G3056 words.
  16 G1722 At G3450 my G4413 first G627 defence G3762 no man G4836 [G5633] stood G3427 with me, G235 but G3956 all G1459 [G5627] men forsook G3165 me: G3049 0 I pray God that it may G3361 not G3049 [G5678] be laid G846 to their charge.
  17 G1161 However G2962 the Lord G3936 [G5627] stood G3427 with me, G2532 and G1743 [G5656] empowered G3165 me; G2443 that G1223 by G1700 me G2782 the proclamation G4135 [G5686] might be fully known, G2532 and G3956 that all G1484 the nations G191 [G5661] might hear: G2532 and G4506 [G5681] I was delivered G1537 out of G4750 the mouth G3023 of the lion.
  18 G2532 And G2962 the Lord G4506 [G5695] shall deliver G3165 me G575 from G3956 every G4190 evil G2041 work, G2532 and G4982 [G5692] will preserve G1519 me to G846 his G2032 heavenly G932 kingdom: G3739 to whom G1391 be glory G1519 to G3588 the G165 ages G3588 of the G165 ages. G281 Amen.
  19 G782 [G5663] Greet G4251 Prisca G2532 and G207 Aquila, G2532 and G3624 the household G3683 of Onesiphorus.
  20 G2037 Erastus G3306 [G5656] abode G1722 at G2882 Corinth: G1161 but G5161 Trophimus G620 [G5627] I have left G1722 at G3399 Miletum G770 [G5723] sick.
  21 G4704 [G5657] Hurry G2064 [G5629] to come G4253 before G5494 winter. G2103 Eubulus G782 [G5736] greeteth G4571 thee, G2532 and G4227 Pudens, G2532 and G3044 Linus, G2532 and G2803 Claudia, G2532 and G3956 all G80 the brethren.
  22 G2962 The Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Anointed G3326 be with G4675 thy G4151 spirit. G5485 Grace G3326 be with G5216 you. G281 Amen.

1 Peter 3:15

  15 G1161 But G37 [G5657] sanctify G2962 the Lord G2316 God G1722 in G5216 your G2588 hearts: G1161 and G2092 be ready G104 always G4314 to G627 give an answer G3956 to every man G154 [G5723] that asketh G5209 you G3056 a reason G4012 of G1680 the hope G1722 that is in G5213 you G3326 with G4240 meekness G2532 and G5401 fear:
