Textus Receptus Bibles
Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993
|6:1||But in those days, the disciples having multiplied, a murmuring of the Hellenists toward the Hebrews occurred, because their widows were being overlooked in the daily serving.|
|6:2||And having called near the multitude of the disciples, the Twelve said, It is not pleasing to us, having left the Word of God, to serve tables!|
|6:3||Then brothers, be looking for men among you receiving testimony, seven men full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we shall appoint over this need.|
|6:4||But we shall continue steadfast in prayer and the service of the Word!|
|6:5||And the saying was pleasing before all the multitude. And they chose out Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch,|
|6:6||each of whom they made stand before the apostles. And having prayed, they placed their hands on them.|
|6:7||And the Word of God was increasing, and the number of the disciples in Jerusalem was multiplying exceedingly. Even a great crowd of the priests were attending to the faith!|
|6:8||And Stephen, full of faith and power, was doing wonders and great signs among the people.|
|6:9||But some of those of the synagogue called Libertines, rose up, also some Cyrenians and Alexandrians, and some of those from Cilicia and Asia Minor, disputing with Stephen.|
|6:10||And they had no strength to stand against the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke.|
|6:11||Then they induced some men to be saying, We have heard him speaking blasphemous words against Moses and God!|
|6:12||And they stirred up the people and the elders and the scribes. And coming on, they together seized him and led him into the sanhedrin.|
|6:13||And they stood up false witnesses, who were saying, This man does not cease speaking blasphemous words against this holy place and the Law;|
|6:14||for we have heard him saying that this Jesus the Nazarene will destroy this place and will change the customs which Moses delivered over to us.|
|6:15||And having looked intently at him, all those having sat in the sanhedrin, saw his face as if it were the face of an angel.|
