Acts 18
Notes
18:1 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth;  
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 to them.  
18:3 And because he was of the same craft, he stayed with them, and worked: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.  
18:4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.  
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.  
18:6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said to them, Your blood be on your own heads; I am clean; from now on I will go to the Gentiles.  
18:7 And he departed there, and entered into a certain man's house, named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.  
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.  
18:9 Then spoke the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not your peace:  
18:10 For I am with you, and no man shall set on you to hurt you: for I have much people in this city.  
18:11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.  
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,  
18:13 Saying, This fellow persuades men to worship God contrary to the law.  
18:14 And when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O you Jews, reason would that I should bear with you:  
18:15 But if it be a question of words and names, and of your law, look you to it; for I will be no judge of such matters.  
18:16 And he drove them from the judgment seat.  
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.  
18:18 And Paul after this tarried there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brothers, and sailed there into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.  
18:19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.  
18:20 When they desired him to tarry longer time with them, he consented not;  
18:21 But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that comes in Jerusalem: but I will return again to you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.  
18:22 And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the church, he went down to Antioch.  
18:23 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.  
18:24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.  
18:25 This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spoke and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.  
18:26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him to them, and expounded to him the way of God more perfectly.  
18:27 And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brothers wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:  
18:28 For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, showing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.
