44_ACT_16_01 Then came he to Derbe And Lystra: And, behold, A certain disciple was there, named Timotheus, the son of A certain woman, which was A Jewess, And believed; but his Father [ was] A Greek:
44_ACT_16_02 which was Well reported of by the brethren that were at Lystra And Iconium.
44_ACT_16_03 him would Paul have to go forth with him; And took And circumcised him because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his Father was A Greek.
44_ACT_16_04 And as they went through the cities, they delivered them the decrees for to keep, that were ordained of the apostles And elders which were at Jerusalem.
44_ACT_16_05 And So were the churches established in the faith, And increased in number daily.
44_ACT_16_06 now when they had gone throughout Phrygia And the region of Galatia, And were forbidden of the holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
44_ACT_16_07 after they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the spirit suffered them not.
44_ACT_16_08 And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.
44_ACT_16_09 And A vision appeared to Paul in the night; there stood A man of Macedonia, And prayed him, saying, come over into Macedonia, And help us.
44_ACT_16_10 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, Assuredly gathering that the LORD had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.
44_ACT_16_11 therefore loosing from Troas, we came with A straight course to Samothracia, And the next [ day] to Neapolis;
44_ACT_16_12 And from thence to Philippi, which Is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, [ And] A colony: And we were in that city abiding certain days.
44_ACT_16_13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by A river side, where prayer was wont to be made; And we sat down, And spake unto the women which resorted [ thither].
44_ACT_16_14 And A certain woman named Lydia, A seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard [ us]: whose heart the LORD opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.
44_ACT_16_15 And when she was baptized, And her household, she besought [ us], saying, if ye have judged me to be faithful to the LORD, come into my house, And abide [ there]. And she constrained us.
44_ACT_16_16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, A certain damsel possessed with A spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
44_ACT_16_17 the same followed Paul And us, And cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which show unto us the way of salvation.
44_ACT_16_18 And this did she Many days. but Paul, being grieved, turned And said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
44_ACT_16_19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul And Silas, And drew [ them] into the marketplace unto the rulers,
44_ACT_16_20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly Trouble our city,
44_ACT_16_21 And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.
44_ACT_16_22 And the multitude rose up together against them: And the magistrates rent off their clothes, And commanded to beat [ them].
44_ACT_16_23 And when they had laid Many stripes upon them, they cast [ them] into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:
44_ACT_16_24 who, having received such A charge, thrust them into the inner prison, And made their feet fast in the stocks.
44_ACT_16_25 And at midnight Paul And Silas prayed, And sang praises unto God: And the prisoners heard them.
44_ACT_16_26 And suddenly there was A great earthquake, So that the foundations of the prison were shaken: And immediately all the doors were opened, And every one's bands were loosed.
44_ACT_16_27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his Sleep, And seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, And would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.
44_ACT_16_28 but Paul cried with A loud voice, saying, do thyself no harm: for we are all here.
44_ACT_16_29 Then he called for A light, And sprang in, And came trembling, And fell down before Paul And Silas,
44_ACT_16_30 And brought them out, And said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
44_ACT_16_31 And they said, believe on the LORD Jesus Christ, And thou shalt be saved, And thy house.
44_ACT_16_32 And they spake unto him the word of the LORD, And to all that were in his house.
44_ACT_16_33 And he took them the same hour of the night, And washed [ their] stripes; And was baptized, he And all his, straightway.
44_ACT_16_34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, And rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.
44_ACT_16_35 And when it was day, the magistrates sent the serjeants, saying, let those men go.
44_ACT_16_36 And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, the magistrates have sent to let you go: now therefore Depart, And go in peace.
44_ACT_16_37 but Paul said unto them, they have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, And have cast [ us] into prison; And now do they thrust us out privily? Nay Verily; but let them come themselves And fetch us out.
44_ACT_16_38 And the serjeants told These words unto the magistrates: And they feared, when they heard that they were Romans.
44_ACT_16_39 And they came And besought them, And brought [ them] out, And desired [ them] to Depart out of the city.
44_ACT_16_40 And they went out of the prison, And entered into [ the house of] Lydia: And when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, And departed.
