18:9And the Lord said to Paul through a vision in the night, Do not fear, but speak, and do not keep silence;

18:11And he remained a year and six months teaching the Word of God among them.
18:12But Gallio being proconsul of Achaia, the Jews rushed against Paul with one passion and led him to the tribunal,
18:13saying, This one persuades men to worship God contrary to the Law.
18:14But Paul being about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, If, indeed, then, it was some wrong or wicked criminality, O Jews, according to reason I would endure you.
18:15But if it is a question about a word, and names, and the law according to you, you will see to it yourselves; for I do not wish to be a judge of these things.
18:16And he drove them from the tribunal.

18:20And they asking him to remain over a longer time with them, he did not agree,
18:21but took leave of them, saying, I must by all means keep the coming feast at Jerusalem; but I will come again to you, God willing. And he sailed from Ephesus.
18:22And landing at Caesarea, having gone up and greeted the church, he went down to Antioch.
18:23And spending some time, he went out, in order passing through the Galatian and Phrygian country, making strong all the disciples.
18:24But a certain Jew named Apollos, an Alexandrian by birth, an eloquent man, came to Ephesus, being powerful in the Scriptures.
18:25This one having been taught by mouth in the way of the Lord, and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things about the Lord, having understood only the baptism of John.
18:26And this one began to speak boldly in the synagogue. And hearing him Priscilla and Aquila took him and more accurately expounded the way of God to him.
