Acts 18:1 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and  came to Corinth; 

Acts 18:2 And found a certain Jew named  Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife  Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to  depart from Rome:) and came unto them.

Acts 18:3 And  because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and  wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.  

Acts 18:4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath,  and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. 

Acts 18:5 And when  Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was  pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus  was Christ. 

Acts 18:6 And when they opposed themselves,  and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto  them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean:  from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.

Acts 18:8 And  Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the  Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians  hearing believed, and were baptized. 

Acts 18:9 Then spake the  Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but  speak, and hold not thy peace: 

Acts 18:10 For I am with thee,  and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much  people in this city. 


Acts 18:11 And he continued there a year  and six months, teaching the word of God among them.  

Acts 18:12 And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the  Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and  brought him to the judgment seat, 

Acts 18:13 Saying, This  fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the  law. 

Acts 18:14 And when Paul was now about to open his  mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If it were a matter of  wrong or wicked lewdness, O ye Jews, reason would that I  should bear with you: 

Acts 18:15 But if it be a question of  words and names, and of your law, look ye to it; for I  will be no judge of such matters. 

Acts 18:16 And he drave  them from the judgment seat. 

Acts 18:17 Then all the Greeks  took Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and beat  him before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none  of those things.  

Acts 18:18 And Paul after this tarried there yet a good  while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed  thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having  shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow. 

Acts 18:19  And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself  entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.  

Acts 18:20 When they desired him to tarry longer time with  them, he consented not; 

Acts 18:21 But bade them farewell,  saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in  Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And  he sailed from Ephesus. 

Acts 18:22 And when he had landed at  Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the church, he went  down to Antioch.

Acts 18:24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at  Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures,  came to Ephesus.
