NASB — Acts 18 — KJV

Paul at Corinth

1 After these things he left aAthens and went to bCorinth. 2 And he found a Jew named aAquila, a native of bPontus, having recently come from cItaly with his wife aPriscilla, because dClaudius had commanded all the Jews to leave Rome. He came to them, 3 and because he was of the same trade, he stayed with them and athey were working, for by trade they were tent-makers. 4 And he was reasoning ain the synagogue every bSabbath and trying to persuade cJews and Greeks.

5 ¶ But when aSilas and Timothy bcame down from cMacedonia, Paul [began] devoting himself completely to the word, solemnly dtestifying to the Jews that eJesus was the IChrist. 6 But when they resisted and blasphemed, he ashook out his garments and said to them, “Your bblood [be] on your own heads! I am clean. From now on I will go cto the Gentiles.” 7 Then he left there and went to the house of a man named ITitius Justus, aa worshiper of God, whose house was next to the synagogue. 8 aCrispus, bthe leader of the synagogue, believed in the Lord cwith all his household, and many of the dCorinthians when they heard were believing and being baptized. 9 And the Lord said to Paul in the night by aa vision, “Do not be afraid [any longer], but go on speaking and do not be silent; 10 for I am with you, and no man will attack you in order to harm you, for I have many people in this city.” 11 And he settled [there] a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.

12 ¶ But while Gallio was aproconsul of bAchaia, cthe Jews with one accord rose up against Paul and brought him before dthe judgment seat, 13 saying, “This man persuades men to worship God contrary to athe law.” 14 But when Paul was about to aopen his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, “If it were a matter of wrong or of vicious crime, O Jews, it would be reasonable for me to put up with you; 15 but if there are aquestions about words and names and your own law, look after it yourselves; I am unwilling to be a judge of these matters.” 16 And he drove them away from athe judgment seat. 17 And they all took hold of aSosthenes, bthe leader of the synagogue, and [began] beating him in front of cthe judgment seat. But Gallio was not concerned about any of these things.

Paul laboureth with his hands, and preacheth at Corinth to the Gentiles.

3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers. 4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. 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. 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.

He is accused before Gallio the deputy, but is dismissed.

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, 13 Saying, This [fellow] persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law. 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: 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]. 16 And he drave them from the judgment seat. 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.

Afterwards passing from city to city he strengtheneth the disciples.

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. 19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews. 20 When they desired [him] to tarry longer time with them, he consented not; 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. 22 And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the church, he went down to Antioch. 23 And after he had spent some time [there], he departed, and went over [all] the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order, strengthening all the disciples.
