Paul in Corinth

1 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth
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.
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.
7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain man's house, named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.
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.
9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:
10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
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.

Paul travels to Judea

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.
24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
25 This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.
26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.
27 And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:
28 For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publickly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.

Events: Paul in Corinth, Claudius banishes the Jews from Rome, Paul travels to Judea

1 post haec egressus ab Athenis venit Corinthum
2 et inveniens quendam Iudaeum nomine Aquilam Ponticum genere qui nuper venerat ab Italia et Priscillam uxorem eius eo quod praecepisset Claudius discedere omnes Iudaeos a Roma accessit ad eos
3 et quia eiusdem erat artis manebat apud eos et operabatur erat autem scenofactoriae artis
4 []
5 cum venissent autem de Macedonia Silas et Timotheus instabat verbo Paulus testificans Iudaeis esse Christum Iesum
6 contradicentibus autem eis et blasphemantibus excutiens vestimenta dixit ad eos sanguis vester super caput vestrum mundus ego ex hoc ad gentes vadam
7 et migrans inde intravit in domum cuiusdam nomine Titi Iusti colentis Deum cuius domus erat coniuncta synagogae
8 Crispus autem archisynagogus credidit Domino cum omni domo sua et multi Corinthiorum audientes credebant et baptizabantur
9 dixit autem Dominus nocte per visionem Paulo noli timere sed loquere et ne taceas
10 propter quod ego sum tecum et nemo adponetur tibi ut noceat te quoniam populus est mihi multus in hac civitate
11 sedit autem annum et sex menses docens apud eos verbum Dei
12 Gallione autem proconsule Achaiae insurrexerunt uno animo Iudaei in Paulum et adduxerunt eum ad tribunal
13 dicentes quia contra legem hic persuadet hominibus colere Deum
14 incipiente autem Paulo aperire os dixit Gallio ad Iudaeos si quidem esset iniquum aliquid aut facinus pessimum o viri iudaei recte vos sustinerem
15 si vero quaestiones sunt de verbo et nominibus et legis vestrae vos ipsi videritis iudex ego horum nolo esse
16 et minavit eos a tribunali
17 adprehendentes autem omnes Sosthenen principem synagogae percutiebant ante tribunal et nihil eorum Gallioni curae erat
18 Paulus vero cum adhuc sustinuisset dies multos fratribus valefaciens navigavit Syriam et cum eo Priscilla et Aquila qui sibi totonderat in Cencris caput habebat enim votum
19 devenitque Ephesum et illos ibi reliquit ipse vero ingressus synagogam disputavit cum Iudaeis
20 rogantibus autem eis ut ampliori tempore maneret non consensit
21 sed valefaciens et dicens iterum revertar ad vos Deo volente profectus est ab Epheso
22 et descendens Caesaream ascendit et salutavit ecclesiam et descendit Antiochiam
23 et facto ibi aliquanto tempore profectus est perambulans ex ordine galaticam regionem et Frygiam confirmans omnes discipulos
24 Iudaeus autem quidam Apollo nomine Alexandrinus natione vir eloquens devenit Ephesum potens in scripturis
25 hic erat edoctus viam Domini et fervens spiritu loquebatur et docebat diligenter ea quae sunt Iesu sciens tantum baptisma Iohannis
26 hic ergo coepit fiducialiter agere in synagoga quem cum audissent Priscilla et Aquila adsumpserunt eum et diligentius exposuerunt ei viam Dei
27 cum autem vellet ire Achaiam exhortati fratres scripserunt discipulis ut susciperent eum qui cum venisset contulit multum his qui crediderant
28 vehementer enim Iudaeos revincebat publice ostendens per scripturas esse Christum Iesum
