Apostlenes Gerninger 1

1:1 Bestemt, O Theophilus, Jeg komponeret den første diskurs om alt det, begyndte Jesus at gøre og lære,
1:2 instruere apostlene, som han havde udvalgt gennem Helligånden, selv indtil den dag, hvor han blev taget op.
1:3 Han præsenterede sig i live også til dem, efter hans Passion, synes at dem i hele fyrre dage og taler om Guds rige med mange udredninger.
1:4 Og spisestue med dem, Han instruerede dem, at de ikke skulle vige fra Jerusalem, men at de skulle vente på Promise Faderens, ”Om, som du har hørt," han sagde, ”Fra min egen mund.
1:5 For John, faktisk, døbt med vand, men I skulle døbes med Helligånden, ikke mange dage fra nu.”
1:6 Derfor, dem, der havde samlet sammen spurgte ham, siger, "Herre, er dette det tidspunkt, hvor du vil genoprette Riget for Israel?"
1:7 Men han sagde til dem: ”Det er ikke din at kende de tidspunkter eller øjeblikke, som Faderen har fastsat af egen autoritet.
1:8 Men du skal få kraften fra Helligånden, passerer over dig, og du skal være vidner til mig i Jerusalem, og i hele Judæa og Samaria, og selv til jordens ender.”
1:9 Og da han havde sagt disse ting, mens de ser, han blev løftet op, og en sky tog ham fra deres syn.
1:10 Og mens de ser ham på vej op til himlen, beskue, to mænd stod i nærheden af ​​dem i hvide Klæder.
1:11 Og de sagde: ”Mænd Galilæas, hvorfor står du her se op mod himlen? Denne Jesus, der er blevet taget fra jer op til himlen, skal vende tilbage i netop den samme måde, som du har set ham gå op til himlen.”
1:12 Så vendte de tilbage til Jerusalem fra bjerget, som kaldes Olivet, som ligger ved siden af ​​Jerusalem, inden for en sabbat dagsrejse.
1:13 Og da de havde indgået i Cenacle, de steg op til det sted, hvor Peter og Johannes, James og Andrew, Philip og Thomas, Bartholomæus og Matthæus, James Alfæus og Simon Fanatiker, og Jude James, indlogeret.
1:14 Alle disse var udholdende endrægtigt i bøn med kvinderne, og med Mary, Jesu mor, og med sine brødre.
1:15 I de dage, Peter, stiger op midt iblandt brødrene, sagde (nu mængden af ​​mænd helt var omkring ethundredeogtyve):
1:16 "Noble brødre, Skriften skal opfyldes, som Helligånden forudsagt af Davids Mund om Judas, der var leder af dem, der pågribes Jesus.
1:17 Han var blevet regnet blandt os, og han blev valgt ved lodtrækning for denne tjeneste.
1:18 Og denne mand sikkert besad en ejendom fra Løn ugudelighed, også, blevet hængt, han sprang op i midten og alle hans indre organer hældes ud.
1:19 Og dette blev vitterligt for alle Jerusalems Indbyggere, så at dette område blev kaldt på deres sprog, Akeldama, det er, ’Field of Blood.’
1:20 For det er blevet skrevet i Salmernes Bog: "Lad deres Bolig blive øde, og kan der ikke være nogen, der bor inden for det,"Og" Lad en anden tage hans bispesæde. «
1:21 Derfor, er det nødvendigt at, ud af disse mænd, der har været samling med os hele tiden, at Herren Jesus gik ind og ud hos os,
1:22 begyndende fra dåb John, indtil den dag, da han blev taget fra os, en af ​​disse gøres til et vidne med os om hans Opstandelse. "
1:23 Og de udnævnte to: Joseph, som blev kaldt Barsabbas, der var med Tilnavn Justus, og Matthias.
1:24 og bede, de sagde: "Må du, Herre, der kender hjertet af alle, afsløre, hvilken en af ​​disse to du har valgt,
1:25 at tage en plads i dette ministerium og Apostelgernings, hvorfra Judas undvigende, så han kunne gå til sit eget sted. "
1:26 Og de kastede Lod om dem, og Lodden faldt paa Matthias. Og han blev regnet sammen med de elleve apostle.

Apostlenes Gerninger 2

2:1 Og når de dage af pinsen blev afsluttet, de var alle sammen på samme sted.
2:2 og pludselig, der kom en lyd fra himlen, ligesom en vind nærmer voldsomt, og den fyldte hele huset, hvor de sad.
2:3 Og der viste sig for dem separate tunger, som om brand, som afregnes på hver enkelt af dem.
2:4 Og de blev alle fyldt med Helligånden. Og de begyndte at tale på forskellige sprog, ligesom Helligånden skænket veltalenhed til dem.
2:5 Nu var der jøder opholder sig i Jerusalem, fromme mænd fra hver nation, der er under himlen.
2:6 Og når denne lyd opstod, mængden kom sammen og blev forvirret i tankerne, fordi hver enkelt lyttede til dem tale på sit eget sprog.
2:7 Så alle var forbavsede, og de undrede sig, siger: "Se, er ikke alle disse, som tale, Galilæere?
2:8 Og hvordan er det, at vi hver især har hørt dem i vores eget sprog, i hvilken vi blev født?
2:9 Partherne og mederne og elamitter, og dem, der bebor Mesopotamien, Judæa og Kappadokien, Pontus og Asien,
2:10 Frygien og Pamfylien, Egypten og de dele af Libyen, som er omkring Kyrene, og nyankomne af romerne,
2:11 ligeledes jøder og nyomvendte, Kretensere og arabere: vi har hørt dem tale i vore egne sprog de mægtige gerninger Gud.”
2:12 Og de var alle forbavsede, og de undrede sig, siger til hinanden: ”Men hvad betyder det?"
2:13 Men andre hånligt sagt, ”Disse mænd er fulde af ny vin.”
2:14 men Peter, stående op med de elleve, opløftede sin Røst, og han talte til dem: ”Mænd af Judæa, og alle dem, der er opholder sig i Jerusalem, lad dette være kendt for dig, og bøj dine ører til mine ord.
2:15 For disse mænd er ikke beruset, som du formoder, for det er den tredje time på dagen.
2:16 Men dette er hvad der blev talt ved profeten Joel:
2:17 ’Og dette skal være: i de sidste dage, siger Herren, Jeg vil udgyde, fra min Ånd, over alt kød. Og jeres sønner og døtre skal profetere. Og dine unge skal se syner, og eders Ældste skulle have Drømme.
2:18 Og helt sikkert, på mine mænd og kvinder tjenere i disse dage, Jeg vil udgyde af min Ånd, og de skal profetere.
2:19 Og jeg vil skænke undere i himlen, og tegn på jorden nedenfor: blod og ild og Røgdamp.
2:20 Solen skal forvandles til Mørke og Månen til Blod, før den store og åbenbare Herrens dag ankommer.
2:21 Og dette skal være: hvem skal påberåbe sig Herrens navn vil blive frelst.’
2:22 Mænd af Israel, høre disse ord: Jesus af Nazareth er en mand bekræftet af Gud iblandt jer gennem de mirakler og undere og tegn, som Gud opnået gennem ham midt iblandt jer, ligesom du også vide.
2:23 Denne mand, under den endelige plan og Guds forudviden, blev leveret af hænderne på den uretfærdige, ramt, og dræbt.
2:24 Og han, som Gud har oprejst har brudt de sorger Helvede, for sikkert det var umuligt for ham at blive holdt af det.
2:25 For David sagde om ham: ’Jeg havde altid Herren for mine øjne, for han er ved min højre hånd, så at jeg ikke kan bevæges.
2:26 På grund af det, mit hjerte har glædet, og min tunge har jublede. Desuden, mit Kød skal også hvile i håb.
2:27 For du vil ikke opgive min sjæl til helvede, eller vil du give din hellige at se Forrådnelse.
2:28 Du har kundgjort mig Livets Veje. Du vil fylde mig med glæde af din tilstedeværelse.’
2:29 Noble brødre, tillade mig at tale frit til jer om patriarken David: for han døde og blev begravet, og hans Grav er hos os, selv den dag i dag.
2:30 Derfor, han var en profet, for han vidste, at Gud havde svoret en ed til ham om frugten af ​​hans lænder, om Ham, som ville sidde på sin trone.
2:31 forudse dette, han talte om opstandelse Kristus. For han var hverken efterladt i helvede, hans kød heller ikke se korruption.
2:32 Denne Jesus, Gud oprejste igen, og i dette er vi alle vidner.
2:33 Derfor, bliver ophøjet til Guds højre hånd, og efter at have modtaget fra Faderen løftet om Helligånden, han hældte det ud, ligesom du nu se og høre.
2:34 Thi David er ikke faret til himmels. Men han selv sagde: ’Herren sagde til min Herre: Sæt dig ved min højre hånd,
2:35 indtil jeg gøre dine fjender din fodskammel.’
2:36 Derfor, kan hele Israels hus vide helt sikkert, at Gud har gjort denne samme Jesus, hvem du korsfæstet, både til Herre og Kristus.”
2:37 Men da de havde hørt disse ting, de var sønderknust i hjertet, og de sagde til Peter og de andre apostle: "Hvad skal vi gøre, ædle brødre?"
2:38 Alligevel virkelig, Peter sagde til dem: ”Gør bod; og blive døbt, hver enkelt af jer, i Jesu Kristi navn, til jeres synders forladelse. Og du skal modtage gaven af ​​Helligånden.
2:39 For Promise er for dig og dine sønner, og for alle, der er langt væk: til hvem Herren vor Gud vil have kaldt.”
2:40 Og så, med mange andre ord, han vidnede og han formanede dem, siger, ”Gem jer fra denne depraverede generation.”
2:41 Derfor, dem, der accepterede hans diskurs blev døbt. Og omtrent tre Tusinde Sjæle blev sat på denne dag.
2:42 Nu var de udholdende i læren om apostlenes, og i fællesskab at bryde brødet, og i bønner.
2:43 Og frygt er udviklet i enhver sjæl. Også, mange mirakler og tegn blev udført af apostlene i Jerusalem. Og der var en stor ærefrygt i alle.
2:44 Og så alle de troende var sammen, og de holdt alle ting tilfælles.
2:45 De solgte deres ejendom og ejendele, og dividere dem til alle, ligesom enhver af dem havde brug for.
2:46 Også, de fortsatte, daglige, at være af en overenskomst i templet og for at bryde brødet mellem husene; og de tog deres måltider med jubel og enkelhed af hjerte,
2:47 prise Gud i høj grad, og holde favør med alle de mennesker. Og hver dag, Herren steg dem, der blev reddet blandt dem.

Apostlenes Gerninger 3

3:1 Men Peter og Johannes gik op til templet ved den niende time af bøn.
3:2 Og en Mand, der var lam fra Moders Liv, var gennemføres i. De ville lægge ham hver dag ved porten til templet, som kaldes smukke, så han kunne anmode om almisser fra dem, der kommer ind i templet.
3:3 Og denne mand, da han havde set Peter og Johannes begyndt at træde ind i templet, tiggede, så han kunne modtage almisser.
3:4 Så Peter og Johannes, stirrede på ham, sagde, "Kig på os."
3:5 Og han så intenst på dem, håber, at han kunne modtage noget fra dem.
3:6 Men Peter sagde: ”Sølv og guld er ikke min. Men hvad jeg har, Jeg giver dig. I Jesu Kristi navn af Nazareth, stå op og gå.”
3:7 Og tager ham med højre hånd, han løftede ham op. Og straks hans ben og fødder blev styrket.
3:8 Og sprang op, han stod og gik rundt. Og han gik med dem ind i templet, gående og springende og lovede Gud.
3:9 Og hele Folket så ham gå og lovede Gud.
3:10 Og de genkendte ham, at han var den samme, som sad for almisser på de smukke Gate af templet. Og de blev fyldt med ærefrygt og forundring over, hvad der var sket med ham.
3:11 Derefter, da han holdt fast i Peter og Johannes, alle mennesker løb hen til dem i portico, som kaldes Salomons, i forbavselse.
3:12 men Peter, se denne, svarede til de mennesker: ”Mænd af Israel, hvorfor du spekulerer på dette? Eller hvorfor du stirrer på os, som om det var ved vor egen styrke eller magt, som vi forårsagede denne mand til at gå?
3:13 Abrahams Gud og Gud, Isaks og Jakobs Gud, Gud, vore fædres, har herliggjort sin Søn Jesus, hvem du, faktisk, afleveret og fornægtede for Pilatus, da han gav dom at løslade ham.
3:14 Så I fornægtede den hellige og Retfærdige, og bønfaldt om en morderisk mand til at blive givet til dig.
3:15 Sandelig, Det var forfatteren af ​​Life hvem du ihjel, hvem Gud oprejste fra de døde, til hvem vi er vidner.
3:16 Og ved tro på hans navn, denne mand, hvem du har set og kendt, har bekræftet hans navn. Og tro gennem ham har givet denne mand fuldstændig sundhed i synet af jer alle.
3:17 Og nu, brødre, Jeg ved, at du gjorde det gennem uvidenhed, ligesom jeres ledere gjorde også.
3:18 Men på denne måde Gud har opfyldt de ting, som han på forhånd annonceret gennem munden af ​​alle profeterne: at hans Kristus ville lide.
3:19 Derfor, omvende og konverteres, så dine synder kan tørres væk.
3:20 Og så, når tiden trøst er ankommet fra Herrens nærhed, han vil sende den, som var forudsagt til dig, Jesus Kristus,
3:21 hvem himlen helt sikkert skal tage op, indtil det tidspunkt, hvor genoprettelsen af ​​alle ting, som Gud har talt ved udmundingen af ​​sine hellige profeters, fra tidligere tider.
3:22 Faktisk, Moses sagde: ’For Herren din Gud oprejse en profet for dig fra dine brødre, én som mig; det samme skal du lytte til i henhold til alt overhovedet, at han skal tale til dig.
3:23 Og dette skal være: hver sjæl, som ikke vil lytte til at Profeten skal udryddes fra folket.’
3:24 Og alle profeter, som har talt, fra Samuel og derefter, har annonceret i disse dage.
3:25 Du er Profetsønnerne og testamente, som Gud har udpeget til vore fædre, han sagde til Abraham: ’Og ved din afkom alle jordens slægter skal velsignes.’
3:26 Gud oprejste sin søn og sendte ham først til dig, at velsigne dig, således at hver enkelt kan vise sig bort fra sin Ondskab.”

Apostlenes Gerninger 4

4:1 Men mens de talte til folket, Præsterne og dommeren af ​​templet og saddukæerne overvældet dem,
4:2 bedrøvet, at de underviste folket og bebuder i Jesus opstandelsen fra de døde.
4:3 Og de lagde Hånd på dem, og de lagde dem under bevogtning, indtil den næste dag. For det var nu aften.
4:4 Men mange af dem, som havde hørt Ordet, troede. Og antallet af mænd blev fem tusinde.
4:5 Og det skete på den næste dag, at deres ledere og de ældste og skriftkloge forsamlede i Jerusalem,
4:6 herunder Annas, Ypperstepræsten, og Kajfas, og John og Alexander, og så mange som var af den præstelige familien.
4:7 Og stationering dem i midten, de udspurgte dem: ”Med hvilken magt, eller i hvis navn, har du gjort dette?"
4:8 Så Peter, fyldt med Helligånden, sagde til dem: ”Lederne af de mennesker og de ældste, Hør efter.
4:9 Hvis vi i dag bliver bedømt af en god gerning gjort til en svagelige mand, hvormed han har gjort hele,
4:10 lad det være kendt til alle jer, og til alle Israels folk, at i navnet på vor Herre Jesus Kristus af Nazareth, hvem du korsfæstet, hvem Gud har oprejst fra de døde, af ham, denne mand står foran dig, sund og rask.
4:11 Han er stenen, som blev afvist af dig, bygherrer, som er blevet den Hovedhjørnesten.
4:12 Og der er ingen frelse i nogen anden. For der er noget andet navn under himlen givet til mænd, ved hvor det er nødvendigt for os at blive frelst.”
4:13 Derefter, se konstans Peters og Johannes, at have konstateret, at de var mænd uden bogstaver eller læring, de spekulerede. Og de erkendte, at de havde været med Jesus.
4:14 Også, se den mand, der var blevet helbredt stående med dem, de var ude af stand til at sige noget til at modsige dem.
4:15 Men de beordrede dem til at trække sig udenfor, væk fra rådet, og rådførte sig med hverandre,
4:16 siger: ”Hvad skal vi gøre med disse Mennesker? For helt sikkert en offentlig tegn er blevet gjort gennem dem, før alle Jerusalems indbyggere. Det er åbenbart, og vi kan ikke benægte det.
4:17 Men for at den ikke spredes videre ud iblandt Folket, Lad os true dem til ikke at tale længere i dette navn til noget menneske.”
4:18 Og kalde dem i, de advarede dem om ikke at tale eller undervise på alle i Jesu navn.
4:19 Alligevel virkelig, Peter og Johannes sagde som svar på dem: ”Vurdere, om det er lige i Guds øjne at lytte til dig, snarere end til Gud.
4:20 For vi er i stand til at afholde sig fra at tale de ting, som vi har set og hørt.”
4:21 Men de, true dem, sendte dem væk, ikke have fundet en måde, at de kunne straffe dem på grund af de mennesker. For alle priste de ting, der var blevet gjort i disse begivenheder.
4:22 Til manden i hvem dette tegn på en kur var blevet gennemført var mere end fyrre år.
4:23 Derefter, der blevet frigivet, de gik til deres egen, og de rapporteres i fuld hvad lederne af de præster og de Ældste havde sagt til dem.
4:24 Og da de havde hørt det, som én, de opløftede deres røst til Gud, og de sagde: "Herre, du er den, der har skabt himlen og jorden, havet og alt, hvad der er i dem,
4:25 hvem, ved Helligånden, gennem munden vor Fader Davids, din tjener, sagde: ’Hvorfor har hedningerne været sydende, og hvorfor har folk været grundede nonsens?
4:26 De Jordens Konger har stået op, og lederne har sluttet sig sammen som én, mod Herren og mod hans Kristus.’
4:27 For virkelig Herodes og Pontius Pilatus, med Hedningerne og Israels folk, sammen i denne by mod din hellige Tjener Jesus, hvem du salvede
4:28 at gøre, hvad din hånd og dit råd havde forordnet ville ske.
4:29 Og nu, Herre, se på deres trusler, og giv dine Tjenere at de kan tale dit ord med al tillid,
4:30 ved at udvide din hånd i kur og tegn og mirakler, skal ske gennem navnet på din hellige Søn, Jesus ”.
4:31 Og da de havde bedt, det sted, hvor de blev samlet blev flyttet. Og de blev alle fyldt med Helligånden. Og de talte Guds ord med tillid.
4:32 Så de mange troende var af ét hjerte og én sjæl. Heller ikke nogen sige, at nogen af ​​de ting, som han ejede var hans egen, men alle ting var fælles for dem.
4:33 Og med stor magt, apostlene blev rendering vidnesbyrd om Jesu Kristi opstandelse, vor Herre. Og der var stor Nåde i dem alle.
4:34 Og hverken var nogen blandt dem, der har behov. For så mange som var ejere af marker eller huse, sælge disse, var at bringe udbyttet af de ting, som de solgte,
4:35 og blev placere den før fødderne af apostlene. Derefter blev det delt op til hver enkelt, ligesom han havde brug for.
4:36 nu Joseph, hvem apostlene Tilnavnet Barnabas (der er oversat som ’søn af trøst’), der var en Levit af Cyprian afstamning,
4:37 da han havde jord, han solgte det, og han bragte udbyttet og anbringes disse på fødderne af apostlene.

Apostlenes Gerninger 5

5:1 Men en vis mand ved navn Ananias, med sin kone Safira, solgt et felt,
5:2 og han var løgnagtig om prisen på marken, med sin kones samtykke. Og bringer kun en del af det, han satte den for fødderne af apostlene.
5:3 Men Peter sagde: ”Ananias, hvorfor har Satan fristede dit hjerte, så du ville lyve for Helligånden og være bedragerisk om prisen på jord?
5:4 Havde det ikke tilhører dig, mens du beholdt det? Og at have solgt det, var det ikke i din magt? Hvorfor har du sat denne ting i dit hjerte? Du har ikke løjet for mænd, men til Gud!"
5:5 Så Ananias, efter at have hørt disse ord, faldt ned og udløb. Og en stor frygt overvældet alle, som hørte det.
5:6 Og de unge mænd rejste sig og fjernede ham; og bærer ham ud, de begravede ham.
5:7 Så henved tre timer passerede, og hans kone trådte, ikke at vide, hvad der var sket.
5:8 Men Peter sagde til hende, "Fortæl mig, kvinde, hvis du sælger den for dette beløb?”Og hun sagde, "Ja, for det pågældende beløb.”
5:9 Men Peter sagde til hende: ”Hvorfor har du enige om at teste Herrens Ånd? Se, fødderne af dem, der har begravet din Mand, ere for Døren, og de skal bære dig ud!"
5:10 Med det samme, hun faldt ned for hans fødder og udåndede. Så de unge mænd ind og fandt hende død. Og de bar hende ud og begravede hende ved siden af ​​sin mand.
5:11 Og en stor Frygt kom over hele Kirken og over alle, som hørte dette.
5:12 Og gennem hænderne på apostlene mange tegn og undere blev gennemført blandt folket. Og de alle mødtes med en aftale sammen på Salomons søjlegang.
5:13 Og blandt de andre, ingen vovede at slutte sig til dem. Men de mennesker, forstørret dem.
5:14 Nu de mange mænd og kvinder, der troede på Herren blev stadigt stigende,
5:15 så meget, at de lagde svagelige i gaderne, placere dem på senge og bårer, så det, som Peter ankom, i det mindste hans skygge kunne falde på en af ​​dem, og de ville blive befriet fra deres Sygdomme.
5:16 Men et væld også skyndte sig til Jerusalem fra de omkringliggende byer, bærer de syge og dem, plaget af urene ånder, som alle blev helbredt.
5:17 Men Ypperstepræsten og alle dem, der var med ham, det er, kættersk Saddukæernes Parti, stod op og blev fyldt med jalousi.
5:18 Og de lagde hænderne på apostlene, og de lagde dem i almindelige fængsler.
5:19 Men i nat, en Herrens Engel åbnede dørene til fængslet og førte dem ud, siger,
5:20 ”Gå ud og stå i templet, taler til de mennesker, alle disse ord i livet.”
5:21 Og da de havde hørt dette, de kom ind i templet i første lys, og de underviste. Så Ypperstepræsten, og de, som var med ham, nærmede sig, og de kaldte sammen rådet og de ypperste i Israels sønner. Og de sendte til fængslet for at have dem bragt.
5:22 Men da de fremmødte var ankommet, og, ved åbning af fængslet, havde ikke fundet dem, vendte de tilbage og rapporteret til dem,
5:23 siger: ”Fængselet fandt vi sikkert låst op med al flid, og vagterne stod foran døren. Men efter åbning det, vi fandt ingen indenfor.”
5:24 Derefter, når dommeren af ​​templet og Ypperstepræsterne hørte disse ord, de var usikre på dem, om, hvad der skal ske.
5:25 Men nogen ankom og rapporteret til dem, "Se, de Mænd, som du placeret i fængsel er i templet, stående og lære Folket.”
5:26 Så dommeren, med arbejdsbier, gik og bragte dem uden kraft. For de var bange for folket, at de ikke skal blive stenet.
5:27 Og da de havde bragt dem, de stod dem før rådet. Og Ypperstepræsten udspurgte dem,
5:28 og nævnte: ”Vi kraftigt bestiller du ikke at lære i dette Navn. Thi se, du have fyldt Jerusalem med eders Lære, og du ønsker at medbringe blod denne mand over os.”
5:29 Men Peter og apostlene svarede ved at sige: ”Det er nødvendigt at adlyde Gud, mere så end mænd.
5:30 Den Vore Fædres Gud har oprejst Jesus, hvem du sætte til døden ved hængning ham på et træ.
5:31 Det er ham, som Gud har ophøjet ved hans højre hånd, som Hersker og Frelser, så at tilbyde omvendelse og syndernes forladelse til Israel.
5:32 Og vi er vidner om disse ting, med Helligånden, som Gud har givet til alle, som adlyder ham.”
5:33 Da de havde hørt disse ting, de var dybt såret, og de havde planer om at slå dem ihjel.
5:34 Men nogen i rådet, en farisæer ved navn Gamaliel, en lærer af loven hædret af alle de mennesker, rejste sig og beordrede mændene til at blive sat udenfor kortvarigt.
5:35 Og han sagde til dem: ”Mænd af Israel, du skal være forsigtig i dine intentioner om disse mænd.
5:36 For før disse dage, Theudas trådte frem, hævde sig selv at være nogen, og et antal mænd, omkring fire hundrede, forenet med ham. Men han blev dræbt, og alle, der troede på ham, blev spredt, og de blev reduceret til ingenting.
5:37 Efter denne ene, Judas Galilæeren trådte frem, i de dage af indskrivning, og han vendte folket mod sig selv. Men han også omkommet, og alle af dem, så mange som havde sluttet med ham, blev dispergeret.
5:38 Og nu derfor, Jeg siger til jer, trække sig tilbage fra disse mænd og lade dem alene. For hvis dette råd eller arbejde er af mænd, det vil blive brudt.
5:39 Alligevel virkelig, hvis det er af Gud, vil du ikke være i stand til at bryde den, og måske kan du blive anset for at have kæmpet mod Gud.”Og de var enige med ham.
5:40 Og kald i apostlene, at have slået dem, de advarede dem ikke at tale på alle i Jesu navn. Og de afviste dem.
5:41 og faktisk, de gik ud fra tilstedeværelsen af ​​rådet, glæde, at de blev anset værdige til at fornærme på vegne af Jesu navn.
5:42 Og hver dag, i templet og mellem husene, de ikke ophøre med at undervise og at evangelisere Kristus Jesus.

Apostlenes Gerninger 6

6:1 I de dage, som antallet af disciple var stigende, der opstod en mumlende af grækerne imod Hebræerne, fordi deres enker blev behandlet med foragt ved den daglige Uddeling.
6:2 Og så de tolv, ringer sammen de mange af disciplene, sagde: ”Det er ikke fair for os at efterlade Guds ord til at tjene ved borde også.
6:3 Derfor, brødre, søge blandt jer i syv mænd af god vidneudsagn, fyldt med Helligånden og med visdom, hvem vi så indsætte til dette arbejde.
6:4 Alligevel virkelig, vi vil være løbende i bøn og i ordets tjeneste.”
6:5 Og planen behagede hele Mængden. Og de udvalgte Stefanus, en mand fyldt med tro og med Helligånden, og Philip og Prochorus og Nicanor og Timon og Parmenas og Nicolas, en ny ankomst fra Antioch.
6:6 Disse de sætter før synet af apostlene, og mens han bad, de indførte hænder på dem.
6:7 Og Herrens ord var stigende, og antallet af disciple i Jerusalem blev såre talrige. Og selv en stor gruppe af præsterne var lydige mod troen.
6:8 Så Stephen, fyldt med nåde og fatning, udvirket store tegn og undere blandt folket.
6:9 Men visse dem, fra synagogen af ​​de såkaldte Libertines, og af Cyrenians, og af Alexandrianere, og af dem, der var fra Kilikien og Asien steg op og blev bestrider med Stephen.
6:10 Men de var ikke i stand til at modstå den visdom og Ånden, som han talte.
6:11 Så fik de hemmeligt nogle mænd, som var at påstå, at de havde hørt ham tale ord blasfemi mod Moses og imod Gud.
6:12 Og således gjorde de ophidse folket og de ældste og de skriftkloge. Og skyndte sig sammen, de greb ham og bragte ham til råd.
6:13 Og de falske Vidner, hvem sagde: ”Denne mand ikke ophører med at tale Ord imod den hellige sted og loven.
6:14 Thi vi have hørt ham sige, at denne Jesus af Nazareth skal nedbryde dette sted og vil ændre traditioner, som Moses overleveret til os.”
6:15 Og alle dem, der sad i rådet, stirrede på ham, så hans ansigt, som om det var blevet ansigtet af en engel.

Handlinger

Apostlenes Gerninger 7

7:1 Så sagde ypperstepræsten, ”Er disse ting, så?"
7:2 Og Stephen sagde: ”Ædle brødre og fædre, Hør efter. Herlighedens Gud viste sig for vor Fader Abraham, da han var i Mesopotamien, før han opholdt sig i Karan.
7:3 Og Gud sagde til ham, ’Afgang fra dit land og fra din slægt, og gå ind i det land, jeg vil vise dig.’
7:4 Så gik han væk fra Kaldæernes Land, og han boede på Karan. Og senere, efter hans far var død, Gud bragte ham ind i dette land, hvor du nu bor.
7:5 Og han gav ham ikke arvelod i det, ikke engang løbet af et trin. Men han lovede at give det til ham som en besiddelse, og til hans afkom efter ham, selvom han ikke har en søn.
7:6 Så fortalte Gud ham, at hans afkom ville være en nybygger i et fremmed land, og at de ville undertvinge dem, og behandle dem dårligt, for fire hundrede år.
7:7 ’Og nationen, hvem de vil tjene, Jeg vil dømme,’Sagde Herren. ’Og efter disse ting, de skal vige og skal tjene mig på dette Sted.’
7:8 Og han gav ham Pagt omskæring. Og så han udtænkt Isak og omskar ham på den ottende dag. Isak udtænkt Jakob, og Jacob, de tolv Patriarchs.
7:9 Og Patriarkernes, være jaloux, solgt Josef i Egypten. Men Gud var med ham.
7:10 Og han reddede ham fra alle hans trængsler. Og han gav ham nåde og visdom i synet af Farao, Ægypterkongen. Og han udnævnt ham som guvernør over Ægypten og over hele sit Hus.
7:11 Så opstod en hungersnød i hele Egypten og Kana'an, og en stor Trængsel. Og vore Fædre fandt ikke mad.
7:12 Men da Jakob hørte, at der var korn i Egypten, sendte han vore Fædre først.
7:13 Og på den anden lejlighed, Josef blev genkendt af sine brødre, og hans afstamning blev åbenbaret til Farao.
7:14 Så Josef sendte bud efter og bragte sin far Jakob, med al sin Slægt, femoghalvfjerds sjæle.
7:15 Og Jakob nedstammer i Egypten, og han døde, og det gjorde vores fædre.
7:16 Og de krydsede over til Sikem, og de blev placeret i graven, som Abraham havde købt for en sum penge fra sønner Hamors, Søn Sikem.
7:17 Og når tiden for løftet om, at Gud havde åbenbaret for Abraham nærmede, folket steget og blev ganget i Egypten,
7:18 selv indtil en anden konge, der ikke vidste Joseph, steg op i Egypten.
7:19 Denne, omfatter vores slægt, plaget vore fædre, så de ville udsætte deres spædbørn, at de ikke skal holdes i live.
7:20 På samme tid, Moses blev født. Og han var i Guds nåde, og han blev næret i tre måneder i huset af sin far.
7:21 Derefter, blevet opgivet, Faraos datter tog ham i, og hun løftede ham som sin egen søn.
7:22 Og Moses blev oplært i al Ægypternes Visdom. Og han var mægtig i sine Ord og i hans gerninger.
7:23 Men når fyrre år blev afsluttet i ham, det rejste sig i sit hjerte, at han skulle besøge sine brødre, Israels sønner.
7:24 Og da han havde set en vis én lidelse skade, han forsvarede ham. Og slående den egyptiske, han gjorde en gengældelse for ham, der var varige skaden.
7:25 Nu skulle han, at hans brødre ville forstå, at Gud ville give dem frelse gennem hans hånd. Men de forstod det ikke.
7:26 Så virkelig, den følgende dag, han optrådte før dem, der argumenterer, og han ville have forsonet dem i fred, siger, 'Herrer, du er brødre. Så hvorfor skulle du skade hinanden?'
7:27 Men den, der var årsag til skade på sin nabo afviste ham, siger: ’Hvem har udnævnt dig som leder og dommer over os?
7:28 Kunne det være, at du ønsker at dræbe mig, på samme måde, som du dræbte den egyptiske går?'
7:29 Derefter, på dette ord, Moses flygtede. Og han blev en fremmed i landet Midjan, hvor han producerede to sønner.
7:30 Og når fyrre år blev afsluttet, der viste sig for ham, i ørkenen i Mount Sinai, en engel, i en flamme af ild i en busk.
7:31 Og ved at se denne, Moses var forbløffet over synet. Og da han nærmede for at stirre på det, det Herrens røst kom til ham, siger:
7:32 ’Jeg er dine Fædres Gud: Abrahams Gud, Isaks Gud, og Jakobs Gud.’Og Moses, gøres at ryste, turde ikke kigge.
7:33 Men Herren sagde til ham: ’Løsnes skoene fra dine fødder. For det sted, hvor du står, er hellig Jord.
7:34 Bestemt, Jeg har set mit folks lidelse, der er i Egypten, og jeg har hørt deres Suk. Også, Jeg kommer ned for at befri dem. Og nu, gå ud og jeg vil sende dig til Ægypten.’
7:35 denne Moses, hvem de forkastede ved at sige, ’Hvem har udnævnt dig som leder og dommer?’Er den ene Gud sendt til at være leder og forløser, ved hånden af ​​englen, der viste sig for ham i Tornebusken.
7:36 Denne mand førte dem ud, opstilling tegn og undere i Ægypten, og ved det Røde Hav, og i ørkenen, i fyrre år.
7:37 Dette er Moses, som sagde til Israels sønner: ’Gud vil oprejse for dig en profet som mig fra dine egne brødre. Du skal lytte til ham.’
7:38 Dette er ham, der var i Kirken i ørkenen, med englen, der talte til ham på Sinai Bjerg, og med vore Fædre. Det er ham, der modtog livets ord at give til os.
7:39 Det er ham, hvem vore Fædre ikke var villige til at adlyde. I stedet, de forkastede ham, og i deres hjerter, de vendte sig bort mod Egypten,
7:40 siger til Aron: ’Make guder for os, som kan gå foran os. For denne Moses, der førte os bort fra Ægypten, vi ved ikke, hvad der er sket med ham.’
7:41 Og så de gammeldags en Kalv i de Dage, og de ofrede til en afgud, og de glædede sig i værker af deres egne hænder.
7:42 Så vendte Gud, og han rakte dem over, at knæfald for hære himlen, lige som det blev skrevet i bogen af ​​profeterne: ’Har du ikke tilbyde ofre og ofre til mig for fyrre år i ørkenen, Israels Hus?
7:43 Og alligevel tog dig op for jer selv Tabernakel Molok og stjernen i din gud Rephan, tal, som I selv dannet for at tilbede dem. Og så jeg vil bære dig væk, ud over Babylon.’
7:44 Den Vidnesbyrdets Bolig var med vore Fædre i ørkenen, ligesom Gud ordineret for dem, taler til Moses, så han ville gøre det i overensstemmelse med den form, han havde set.
7:45 Men vore fædre, modtager den, også bragt det, med Joshua, ind i landet af hedningerne, hvem Gud udvises inden ansigtet vore Fædres, selv indtil Davids Dage,
7:46 der fandt nåde for Gud og som bad om, at han kunne få et tabernakel for Jakobs Gud.
7:47 Men det var Salomon, der byggede et hus til ham.
7:48 Alligevel den Højeste bor ikke i huse bygget af hænder, ligesom han sagde gennem profeten:
7:49 ’Himlen er min trone, og jorden er min fodskammel. Hvilken slags hus ville du bygge for mig? siger Herren. Og der er min hvilested?
7:50 Har ikke min hånd gjort alle disse ting?'
7:51 Stivnakkede og uomskårne på hjerte og ører, du nogensinde modstå Helligånden. Ligesom dine Fædre, så også gør du.
7:52 Hvilke af profeterne har jeres fædre ikke forfulgt? Og de dræbte dem, der forudsagde fremkomsten af ​​Just One. Og du er nu blevet Forrædere og Mordere af ham.
7:53 Du har modtaget loven ved handlinger Angels, og du har ikke holdt den.”
7:54 Derefter, efter at have hørt disse ting, de var dybt såret i deres hjerter, og de skar deres tænder på ham.
7:55 Men han, blive fyldt med Helligånden, og stirrede intenst mod himlen, så Guds herlighed og Jesus stående ved Guds højre hånd. Og han sagde, "Se, Jeg ser Himlene åbnede, og Menneskesønnen stående ved Guds højre side.”
7:56 Så de, råbte med høj røst, blokeret deres ører og, som én, styrtede voldsomt mod ham.
7:57 Og køre ham ud, ud over byen, de stenede ham. Og vidner placeret deres klæder ved siden af ​​fødderne af en ungdom, som blev kaldt Saul.
7:58 Og da de var stene Stefanus, han råbte og sagde, ”Herre Jesus, modtage min ånd.”
7:59 Derefter, er blevet bragt i knæ, han råbte med høj røst, siger, "Herre, ikke denne synd imod dem.”Og da han havde sagt dette, han faldt i søvn i Herren. Saul blev samtykke til hans mord.

Apostlenes Gerninger 8

8:1 Nu i disse dage, der opstod en stor forfølgelse af Kirken i Jerusalem. Og de var alle spredt i hele regioner i Judæa og Samaria, undtagen apostlene.
8:2 Men gudfrygtige mænd arrangeret for Stephens begravelse, og de gjorde en stor sorg over ham.
8:3 Saul lå affald til kirken ved at indtaste hele husene, og trække væk mænd og kvinder, og forpligte dem til fængsel.
8:4 Derfor, dem, der var blevet spredt rejse omkring, forkynde evangeliet for de Guds Ord.
8:5 nu Philip, faldende til en by i Samaria, forkyndte Kristus til dem.
8:6 Og publikum var lyttede opmærksomt og endrægtigt til de ting, som var ved at blive sagt af Philip, og de ser de tegn, som han udretter.
8:7 For mange af dem havde urene ånder, og, råbte med høj røst, disse afgik fra dem.
8:8 Og mange af de værkbrudne og lamme bleve helbredte.
8:9 Derfor, Der var stor glæde i den by. Nu var der en vis mand ved navn Simon, der tidligere havde været en tryllekunstner i byen, forfører folk i Samaria, hævder selv at være nogen stor.
8:10 Og til alle dem, der ville lytte, fra den mindste selv i videst, han sagde: ”Her er Guds kraft, som kaldes stor.”
8:11 Og de var opmærksomme på ham, fordi, i lang tid, han havde vildledt dem med sin magi.
8:12 Alligevel virkelig, når de havde troet Philip, der var forkynde evangeliet for de Guds rige, både mænd og kvinder blev døbt i Jesu Kristi navn.
8:13 Men Simon selv også troet og, da han var blevet døbt, han levet op til Philip. Og nu, se også de største tegn og mirakler bliver udvirket, han var forbløffet og bedøvet.
8:14 Nu når de apostle, som var i Jerusalem, havde hørt, at Samaria havde modtaget Guds Ord, sendte de Peter og Johannes til dem.
8:15 Og da de var ankommet, de bad for dem, så de kunne modtage Helligånden.
8:16 For han endnu ikke var kommet til nogen blandt dem, da de kun blev døbt i Herrens navn Jesus.
8:17 De lagde deres hænder på dem, og de fik Helligånden.
8:18 Men da Simon havde set, at, ved indførelse af hænderne på apostlenes, Helligånden blev givet, han tilbød dem penge,
8:19 siger, ”Giv denne magt til mig også, så på hvem jeg vil lægge mine hænder, han kan modtage Helligånden.”Men Peter sagde til ham:
8:20 ”Lad dine penge være med dig i fortabelsens, for dig har antaget, at en gave fra Gud kan være besat af penge.
8:21 Der er ingen del eller sted for dig i denne sag. For dit hjerte ikke er oprejst i Guds øjne.
8:22 Også, omvende fra dette, din ondskab, og beder Gud, så måske denne plan for dit hjerte kan blive tilgivet dig.
8:23 For jeg opfatter dig at være i galde bitterhed og på obligationsmarkedet af ugudelighed.”
8:24 Men Simon svarede ved at sige, ”Bed for mig til Herren, så intet af det, du har sagt, kan ske for mig.”
8:25 og faktisk, efter vidner og taler Herrens Ord, vendte de tilbage til Jerusalem, og de evangelized de mange regioner i samaritanerne.
8:26 Nu er en Herrens engel talte til Filip, siger, ”Rejs dig og gå mod syd, til den måde, som stiger ned fra Jerusalem til Gaza, hvor der er en ørken.”
8:27 Og stiger op, Han gik. Og se, en etiopisk mand, en eunuk, kraftfuld under Candace, dronningen af ​​etiopierne, der var over alle hendes Skatte, var ankommet i Jerusalem for at tilbede.
8:28 Og samtidig vender tilbage, han sad på sin vogn og læste fra profeten Esajas.
8:29 Så sagde Ånden til Philip, ”Kom nær og slutte dig til denne Vogn.”
8:30 og Philip, skyndte, hørte ham læse fra profeten Esajas, og han sagde, ”Tror du, at du forstår, hvad du læser?"
8:31 Og han sagde, ”Men hvordan kan jeg, medmindre nogen vil have afsløret det til mig?”Og han spurgte Filip til at klatre op og sidde med ham.
8:32 Nu det sted i Skriften, at han læste, var dette: ”Ligesom et får blev han ført til slagtning. Og som et lam tavs før hans shearer, så han åbnede ikke sin mund.
8:33 Han udholdt sin dom med ydmyghed. Hvem af hans slægt skal beskrive, hvordan hans liv blev taget bort fra jorden?"
8:34 Så Hofmanden reageret på Philip, siger: "Jeg beder dig, om hvem er den profet siger dette? Om sig selv, eller om en anden?"
8:35 Så Philip, at åbne munden og begynder fra denne Skriften, evangelized Jesus til ham.
8:36 Og mens de var på vej hen ad vejen, de ankom til en vis vandkilde. Og hofmanden sagde: ”Der er vand. Hvad ville forhindre mig i at blive døbt?"
8:37 Så sagde Philip, ”Hvis du mener, fra hele dit hjerte, det er tilladt.”Og han svarede ved at sige, ”Jeg tror, ​​Guds Søn til at være Jesus Kristus.”
8:38 Og han beordrede Vognen skulde holde,. Og både Filip og Hofmanden nedstammer i vandet. Og han døbte ham.
8:39 Og da de var steget op fra vandet, det Herrens Ånd tog Filip væk, og Hofmanden så ham ikke længere. Så gik han på vej, glæde.
8:40 Nu Filip blev fundet i Asdod. Og fortsætter på, han evangelized alle byer, indtil han ankom til Cæsarea.

9:11 Og Herren sagde til ham: ”Rejs dig og gå ind i gaden, der kaldes den lige, og søge, i huset af Judas, den ene ved navn Saulus fra Tarsus. Thi se, han beder.”
9:12 (Og Paulus så en mand ved navn Ananias komme ind og pålægge hænderne på ham, så han skulde blive seende.)
9:13 Men Ananias svarede: "Herre, Jeg har hørt fra mange om denne mand, hvor meget skade han har gjort dine hellige i Jerusalem.
9:14 Og han har autoritet her fra lederne af præsterne at binde alle dem, som påkalde dit Navn.”
9:15 Så sagde Herren til ham: "Go, for denne ene er en af ​​mig valgt at viderebringe mit navn før nationer og konger instrument og Israels sønner.
9:16 For jeg vil afsløre, hvor meget han skal lide på vegne af mit navn.”
9:17 Og Ananias afgik. Og han gik ind i huset. Og lagde Hænderne på ham, han sagde: ”Broder Saul, Herren Jesus, han, som viste sig for dig på den måde, hvorpå du ankommet, sendte mig, så du vil modtage dit syn og blive fyldt med Helligånden.”
9:18 Og straks, det var som om skalaer var faldet fra hans øjne, og han bleven seende. Og stiger op, han blev døbt.
9:19 Og da han havde taget et måltid, han blev styrket. Nu var han med disciplene, der var i Damaskus i nogle dage.
9:20 Og han blev kontinuerligt prædikede Jesus i synagogerne: at han er Guds Søn.
9:21 Og alle, som hørte ham var forbavsede, og de sagde, ”Er det ikke den, der, i Jerusalem, kæmpede mod dem påberåber dette navn, og der kom her til dette: så han kunne føre dem bort til lederne af de præster?"
9:22 Men Saulus var stigende i højere grad i evnen, og så blev han confounding Jøderne, som boede i Damaskus, ved at bekræfte, at han er Kristus.
9:23 Og når mange dage blev afsluttet, jøderne holdt Råd som en, så de kunne slå ham ihjel.
9:24 Men deres forræderi blev kendt til Saul. Nu blev de også ser portene, dag og nat, så de kunne slå ham ihjel.
9:25 Men disciplene, tage ham væk om natten, sendte ham over muren ved at lade ham ned i en kurv.
9:26 Og da han var ankommet i Jerusalem, han forsøgte at slutte sig til disciplene. Og de var alle bange for ham, ikke tro, at han var en discipel.
9:27 Men Barnabas tog ham til side og førte ham til apostlene. Og han forklarede dem, hvordan han havde set Herren, og at han havde talt til ham, og hvor, i Damaskus, han havde handlet trofast i Jesu navn.
9:28 Og han var med dem, ind og afgående Jerusalem, og handler trofast i Herrens navn.
9:29 Han også talte med hedningerne og bestrider med grækerne. Men de søgte at slå ham ihjel.

9:32 det skete da, at Peter, da han rejste rundt overalt, kom til de hellige, som boede i Lydda.
9:33 Men han fandt der en vis mand, Navn Æneas, der var en paralytisk, der havde ligget i sengen i otte år.
9:34 Men Peter sagde til ham: "Æneas, Herren Jesus Kristus helbreder dig. Stå op og arrangere din seng.”Og han stod straks op.
9:35 Og alle, der boede i Lydda og Sharon så ham, og de blev omvendt til Herren.
9:36 Nu i Joppe var der en Discipel ved Navn Tabitha, som i oversættelse kaldes Dorcas. Hun var fyldt med gode gerninger og uddeling af milde gaver at hun varetagelse.
9:37 Og det skete, at, i de dage, hun blev syg og døde. Og da de havde vasket hende, De lagde hende i et værelse ovenpå.

Apostlenes Gerninger 10

10:1 Nu var der en vis mand i Caesarea, navn Cornelius, en centurion af kohorten som kaldes italiensk,
10:2 en from mand, frygtede Gud tillige med hele sit hus, hvilket giver mange almisser til de mennesker, og bede til Gud hele tiden.
10:3 Denne mand så i et syn klart, ved ved den niende Time på dagen, Guds Engel ind til ham og sagde til ham: ”Cornelius!"
10:4 Og han, stirrede på ham, blev grebet af frygt, og han sagde, "Hvad er det, herre?”Og han sagde til ham: ”Dine bønner og dine almisser er steget op som et mindesmærke i Guds øjne.
10:5 Og nu, sende mænd til Joppe og tilkalde en vis Simon, Tilnavn Peter.
10:6 Denne mand er en gæst med en vis Simon, en garver, hvis hus er ved siden af ​​havet. Han vil fortælle dig, hvad du skal gøre.”
10:7 Og da Engelen, som talte til ham havde afgik, han ringede, ud af dem, der var genstand for ham, to af hans husstand tjenere og en soldat, der frygtede Herren.
10:8 Og da han havde forklaret alt til dem, han sendte dem til Joppe.
10:9 Derefter, den følgende dag, while they were making the journey and approaching the city, Peter ascended to the upper rooms, så han kunne bede, at about the sixth hour.
10:10 And since he was hungry, he wanted to enjoy some food. Derefter, as they were preparing it, an ecstasy of mind fell over him.
10:11 And he saw heaven opened, and a certain container descending, as if a great linen sheet were let down, by its four corners, from heaven to earth,
10:12 on which were all four-footed beasts, and the crawling things of the earth and the flying things of the air.
10:13 And a voice came to him: "Stå op, Peter! Kill and eat.”
10:14 Men Peter sagde: ”Det være langt fra mig, herre. For I have never eaten anything common or unclean.”
10:15 And the voice, again a second time to him: “What God has purified, you shall not call common.”
10:16 Now this was done three times. And immediately the container was taken up to heaven.
10:17 Now while Peter was still hesitant within himself as to what the vision, which he had seen, might mean, beskue, the men who had been sent from Cornelius stood at the gate, inquiring about Simon’s house.
10:18 And when they had called out, they asked if Simon, Tilnavn Peter, was a guest in that place.
10:19 Derefter, as Peter was thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, "Se, three men seek you.
10:20 Også, rise up, nedstigning, and go with them, tvivle. For I have sent them.”
10:21 Så Peter, descending to the men, sagde: "Se, I am the one whom you seek. What is the reason for which you have arrived?"
10:22 Og de sagde: ”Cornelius, a centurion, a just and God-fearing man, who has good testimony from the entire nation of the Jews, received a message from a holy Angel to summon you to his house and to listen to words from you.”
10:23 Derfor, leading them in, he received them as guests. Derefter, on following the day, stiger op, he set out with them. And some of the brothers from Joppa accompanied him.
10:24 And on the next day, he entered Caesarea. Og virkelig, Cornelius was waiting for them, having called together his family and closest friends.
10:25 Og det skete, at, when Peter had entered, Cornelius went to meet him. And falling before his feet, he reverenced.
10:26 Alligevel virkelig, Peter, lifting him up, sagde: "Stå op, for I also am only a man.”
10:27 And speaking with him, he entered, and he found many who had gathered together.
10:28 Og han sagde til dem: “You know how abominable it would be for a Jewish man to be joined with, or to be added to, a foreign people. But God has revealed to me to call no man common or unclean.
10:29 Because of this and without doubt, I came when summoned. Derfor, Jeg spørger dig, for what reason have you summoned me?"
10:30 And Cornelius said: “It is now the fourth day, to this very hour, since I was praying in my house at the ninth hour, og se, a man stood before me in a white vestment, og han sagde:
10:31 ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard and your almsgiving has been remembered in the sight of God.
10:32 Derfor, send to Joppa and summon Simon, Tilnavn Peter. This man is a guest in the house of Simon, en garver, near the sea.’
10:33 Også, I promptly sent for you. And you have done well in coming here. Derfor, all of us are now present in your sight to hear all the things that were taught to you by the Lord.”
10:34 Derefter, Peter, at åbne munden, sagde: ”Jeg har indgået i sandhed at Gud ikke er en forskel på personer.
10:35 Men inden for hver nation, hvem frygter ham og øver retfærdighed, velkommen for ham.
10:36 Gud sendte Word til Israels sønner, bebuder fred ved Jesus Kristus, for han er Herre over alt.
10:37 Du ved, at Ordet er gjort kendt over hele Judæa. For begyndelsen fra Galilæa, efter dåben, som Johannes prædikede,
10:38 Jesus af Nazareth, hvem Gud salvet med Helligånden og med magt, rejste rundt gør godt og helbredte alle dem overvældede af Djævelen. For Gud var med ham.
10:39 Og vi er vidner til alt, hvad han gjorde i regionen Judæa og Jerusalem, han hvem de dræbte ved at hænge ham på et træ.
10:40 Gud oprejste ham op på den tredje dag og tillod ham at åbenbares,
10:41 ikke til alle de mennesker, men til de vidner, forudbestemt af Gud, til dem af os, der spiste og drak med ham, efter at han genopstod fra de døde.
10:42 Og han pålagde os at prædike for Folket, og at vidne, at han er den, som blev udnævnt af Gud til at være dommer over levende og de døde.
10:43 For ham alle profeterne tilbyde vidnesbyrd om, at gennem hans navn alle, som tror på ham modtage syndernes forladelse.”
10:44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell over all of those who were listening to the Word.
10:45 And the faithful of the circumcision, who had arrived with Peter, were astonished that the grace of the Holy Spirit was also poured out upon the Gentiles.
10:46 For they heard them speaking in tongues and magnifying God.
10:47 Then Peter responded, “How could anyone prohibit water, so that those who have received the Holy Spirit would not be baptized, just as we also have been?"
10:48 And he ordered them to be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Then they begged him to remain with them for some days.

 

Apostlenes Gerninger 11

11:1 Now the Apostles and brothers who were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also received the Word of God.
11:2 Derefter, when Peter had gone up to Jerusalem, those who were of the circumcision argued against him,
11:3 siger, “Why did you enter to uncircumcised men, and why did you eat with them?"
11:4 And Peter began to explain to them, in an orderly manner, siger:
11:5 “I was in the city of Joppa praying, and I saw, in an ecstasy of mind, a vision: a certain container descending, like a great linen sheet being let down from heaven by its four corners. And it drew near to me.
11:6 And looking into it, I considered and saw the four-footed beasts of the earth, og de vilde dyr, and the reptiles, and the flying things of the air.
11:7 Then I also heard a voice saying to me: 'Stig op, Peter. Kill and eat.’
11:8 But I said: ‘Never, herre! For what is common or unclean has never entered into my mouth.’
11:9 Then the voice responded a second time from heaven, ‘What God has cleansed, you shall not call common.’
11:10 Now this was done three times. And then everything was taken up again into heaven.
11:11 Og se, immediately there were three men standing near the house where I was, having been sent to me from Caesarea.
11:12 Then the Spirit told me that I should go with them, tvivle. And these six brothers went with me also. And we entered into the house of the man.
11:13 And he described for us how he had seen an Angel in his house, standing and saying to him: ‘Send to Joppa and summon Simon, Tilnavn Peter.
11:14 And he shall speak to you words, by which you shall be saved with your whole house.’
11:15 And when I had begun to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, just as upon us also, in the beginning.
11:16 Then I remembered the words of the Lord, just as he himself said: ‘John, faktisk, døbt med vand, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’
11:17 Derfor, if God gave them the same grace, as also to us, who have believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I, that I would be able to prohibit God?"
11:18 Having heard these things, they were silent. And they glorified God, siger: “So has God also given to the Gentiles repentance unto life.”
11:19 And some of them, having been dispersed by the persecution that had occurred under Stephen, traveled around, even to Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, speaking the Word to no one, except to Jews only.
11:20 But some of these men from Cyprus and Cyrene, when they had entered into Antioch, were speaking also to the Greeks, announcing the Lord Jesus.
11:21 And the hand of the Lord was with them. And a great number believed and were converted to the Lord.
11:22 Now the news came to the ears of the Church at Jerusalem about these things, and they sent Barnabas as far as Antioch.
11:23 And when he had arrived there and had seen the grace of God, he was gladdened. And he exhorted them all to continue in the Lord with a resolute heart.
11:24 For he was a good man, and he was filled with the Holy Spirit and with faith. And a great multitude was added to the Lord.
11:25 Then Barnabas set out for Tarsus, so that he might seek Saul. And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch.
11:26 And they were conversing there in the Church for an entire year. And they taught such a great multitude, that it was at Antioch that the disciples were first known by the name of Christian.
11:27 Now in these days, prophets from Jerusalem went over to Antioch.
11:28 Og en af ​​dem, named Agabus, stiger op, signified through the Spirit that there was going to be a great famine over the entire world, which did happen under Claudius.
11:29 Then the disciples declared, according to what each one possessed, what they would offer to be sent to the brothers living in Judea.
11:30 And so they did, sending it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

12:12 And as he was considering this, he arrived at the house of Mary, the mother of John, who was surnamed Mark, where many were gathered and were praying.

12:15 But they said to her, “You are crazy.” But she reaffirmed that this was so. Then they were saying, “It is his angel.”
12:16 But Peter was persevering in knocking. And when they had opened, they saw him and were astonished.
12:17 But motioning to them with his hand to be silent, he explained how the Lord had led him away from prison. Og han sagde, “Inform James and those brothers.” And going out, he went away to another place.
12:18 Derefter, when daylight came, there was no small commotion among the soldiers, as to what had happened concerning Peter.
12:19 And when Herod had requested him and did not obtain him, having had the guards interrogated, he ordered them led away. And descending from Judea into Caesarea, he lodged there.
12:20 Now he was angry with those of Tyre and Sidon. But they came to him with one accord, og, having persuaded Blastus, who was over the bedchamber of the king, they petitioned for peace, because their regions were supplied with food by him.
12:21 Derefter, on the appointed day, Herod was clothed in kingly apparel, and he sat in the judgment seat, and he gave a speech to them.
12:22 Then the people were crying out, “The voice of a god, and not of a man!"

13:8 But Elymas the magician (for so his name is translated) stood against them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the Faith.
13:9 Saul, who is also called Paul, having been filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him,
13:10 og han sagde: “So full of every deceit and of all falsehoods, son of the devil, enemy of all justice, you never cease to subvert the righteous ways of the Lord!
13:11 Og nu, beskue, the hand of the Lord is upon you. And you will be blinded, not seeing the sun for a length of time.” And immediately a fog and a darkness fell over him. And wandering around, he was seeking someone who might lead him by the hand.

13:13 And when Paul and those who were with him had sailed from Paphos, they arrived at Perga in Pamphylia. Then John departed from them and returned to Jerusalem.

13:19 And by destroying seven nations in the land of Canaan, he divided their land among them by lot,
13:20 after about four hundred and fifty years. Og efter disse ting, he gave them judges, even until the prophet Samuel.
13:21 And later on, they petitioned for a king. And God gave them Saul, søn af Kish, a man from the tribe of Benjamin, i fyrre år.
13:22 Og efter at have fjernet ham, han oprejste for dem Kong David. Og tilbyde vidnesbyrd om ham, han sagde, ’Jeg har fundet David, Isajs Søn, at være en mand efter mit eget hjerte, der vil udrette alt, hvad jeg vil.’

13:34 Nu, since he raised him from the dead, so as to no longer return to corruption, he has said this: ‘I will give to you the holy things of David, the faithful one.’
13:35 And also then, in another place, han siger: ‘You will not allow your Holy One to see corruption.’
13:36 For David, when he had ministered to his generation in accordance with the will of God, fell asleep, and he was placed next to his fathers, and he saw corruption.
13:37 Alligevel virkelig, he whom God has raised from the dead has not seen corruption.
13:38 Derfor, let it be known to you, ædle brødre, that through him is announced to you remission from sins and from everything by which you were not able to be justified in the law of Moses.

13:41 ‘You despisers! Look, and wonder, and be scattered! For I am working a deed in your days, a deed which you would not believe, even if someone were to explain it to you.’ ”
13:42 Derefter, as they were departing, they asked them if, on the following Sabbath, they might speak these words to them.
13:43 And when the synagogue had been dismissed, many among the Jews and the new worshipers were following Paul and Barnabas. And they, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.
13:44 Alligevel virkelig, on the following Sabbath, nearly the entire city came together to hear the Word of God.
13:45 Derefter jøderne, se folkemængderne, were filled with envy, and they, blaspheming, contradicted the things that were being said by Paul.
13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas said firmly: “It was necessary to speak the Word of God first to you. But because you reject it, and so judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, beskue, we turn to the Gentiles.
13:47 For so has the Lord instructed us: ‘I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, so that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’ ”
13:48 Then the Gentiles, efter at have hørt denne, were gladdened, and they were glorifying the Word of the Lord. And as many as believed were preordained to eternal life.
13:49 Now the word of the Lord was disseminated throughout the entire region.
13:50 But the Jews incited some devout and honest women, and the leaders of the city. And they stirred up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas. And they drove them away from their parts.
13:51 Men de, shaking the dust from their feet against them, went on to Iconium.
13:52 The disciples were likewise filled with gladness and with the Holy Spirit.

Apostlenes Gerninger 14

14:1 Now it happened in Iconium that they entered together into the synagogue of the Jews, and they spoke in such a way that a copious multitude of both Jews and Greeks believed.
14:2 Alligevel virkelig, the Jews who were unbelieving had incited and enflamed the souls of the Gentiles against the brothers.
14:3 Også, they remained for a long time, acting faithfully in the Lord, offering testimony to the Word of his grace, providing signs and wonders done by their hands.
14:4 Then the multitude of the city was divided. Og helt sikkert, some were with the Jews, yet truly others were with the Apostles.
14:5 Now when an assault had been planned by the Gentiles and the Jews with their leaders, so that they might treat them with contempt and stone them,
14:6 de, realisere dette, fled together to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the entire surrounding region. And they were evangelizing in that place.
14:7 And a certain man was sitting at Lystra, disabled in his feet, lame from his mother’s womb, who had never walked.
14:8 This man heard Paul speaking. And Paul, gazing at him intently, and perceiving that he had faith, so that he might be healed,
14:9 said with a loud voice, “Stand upright upon your feet!” And he leaped up and walked around.
14:10 But when the crowds had seen what Paul had done, they lifted up their voice in the Lycaonian language, siger, “The gods, having taken the likenesses of men, have descended to us!"
14:11 And they called Barnabas, ‘Jupiter,’ yet truly they called Paul, ‘Mercury,’ because he was the lead speaker.
14:12 Også, the priest of Jupiter, who was outside the city, in front of the gate, bringing in oxen and garlands, was willing to offer sacrifice with the people.
14:13 And as soon as the Apostles, Barnabas and Paul, havde hørt dette, tearing their tunics, they leapt into the crowd, skriger
14:14 og siger: “Men, why would you do this? We also are mortals, men like yourselves, preaching to you to be converted, from these vain things, to the living God, who made heaven and earth and the sea and all that is in them.
14:15 In previous generations, he permitted all nations to walk in their own ways.
14:16 But certainly, he did not leave himself without testimony, doing good from heaven, giving rains and fruitful seasons, filling their hearts with food and gladness.”
14:17 And by saying these things, they were barely able to restrain the crowds from immolating to them.
14:18 Now certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium arrived there. And having persuaded the crowd, they stoned Paul and dragged him outside of the city, thinking him to be dead.
14:19 But as the disciples were standing around him, he got up and entered the city. Og den næste dag, he set out with Barnabas for Derbe.
14:20 And when they had evangelized that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch,
14:21 strengthening the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them that they should remain always in the faith, and that it is necessary for us to enter into the kingdom of God through many tribulations.
14:22 And when they had established priests for them in each church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, in whom they believed.
14:23 And traveling by way of Pisidia, they arrived in Pamphylia.
14:24 And having spoken the word of the Lord in Perga, they went down into Attalia.
14:25 And from there, they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work which they had now accomplished.
14:26 And when they had arrived and had gathered together the church, they related what great things God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.
14:27 And they remained for no small amount of time with the disciples.

15:1 Og visse dem, ned fra Judæa, underviste brødrene, ”Medmindre du omskære efter Mose Skik, du kan ikke gemmes.”
15:2 Derfor, når Paulus og Barnabas gjorde ingen lille oprør mod dem, de besluttede, at Paulus og Barnabas, og nogle fra den modstående side, skal gå op til apostlene og præsterne i Jerusalem om dette spørgsmål.
15:3 Derfor, bliver ledet af kirken, de rejste gennem Fønikien og Samaria, beskriver omdannelsen af ​​Hedningernes. Og de vakte stor glæde blandt alle brødrene.
15:4 Og da de var ankommet i Jerusalem, de blev modtaget af kirken og apostlene og de ældste, rapportering hvilke store ting Gud havde gjort med dem.
15:5 Men nogle fra sekt af Farisæerne, dem, der var troende, rejste sig og sagde, ”Det er nødvendigt for dem at blive omskåret, og skal instrueres i at holde Mose Lov.”
15:6 Og Apostlene og de Ældste kom sammen for at tage sig af denne sag.
15:7 And after a great contention had taken place, Peter rose up and said to them: "Noble brødre, you know that, in recent days, God has chosen from among us, by my mouth, Gentiles to hear the word of the Gospel and to believe.
15:8 And God, who knows hearts, offered testimony, by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as to us.
15:9 And he distinguished nothing between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
15:10 Så derfor, why do you tempt God to impose a yoke upon the necks of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear?
15:11 But by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, we believe in order to be saved, in the same manner also as them.”
15:12 Then the entire multitude was silent. And they were listening to Barnabas and Paul, describing what great signs and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles through them.
15:13 And after they had been silent, James responded by saying: "Noble brødre, listen to me.
15:14 Simon has explained in what manner God first visited, so as to take from the Gentiles a people to his name.
15:15 And the words of the Prophets are in agreement with this, ligesom det blev skrevet:
15:16 ‘After these things, I will return, and I will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down. And I will rebuild its ruins, and I will raise it up,
15:17 so that the rest of men may seek the Lord, along with all the nations over whom my name has been invoked, siger Herren, who does these things.’
15:18 To the Lord, his own work has been known from eternity.
15:19 På grund af det, I judge that those who were converted to God from among the Gentiles are not to be disturbed,
15:20 but instead that we write to them, that they should keep themselves from the defilement of idols, and from fornication, and from whatever has been suffocated, and from blood.
15:21 For Moses, from ancient times, has had in each city those who preach him in the synagogues, where he is read on every Sabbath.”
15:22 Then it pleased the Apostles and elders, with the whole Church, to choose men from among them, and to send to Antioch, with Paul and Barnabas, and Judas, who was surnamed Barsabbas, and Silas, preeminent men among the brothers,
15:23 what was written by their own hands: “The Apostles and elders, brødre, to those who are at Antioch and Syria and Cilicia, brothers from the Gentiles, Vær hilset.
15:24 Since we have heard that some, going out from among us, have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, to whom we gave no commandment,
15:25 it pleased us, being assembled as one, to choose men and to send them to you, with our most beloved Barnabas and Paul:
15:26 men who have handed over their lives on behalf of the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:27 Derfor, we have sent Judas and Silas, who themselves also will, with the spoken word, reaffirm to you the same things.
15:28 For it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to impose no further burden upon you, other than these necessary things:
15:29 that you abstain from things immolated to idols, and from blood, and from what has been suffocated, and from fornication. You will do well to keep yourselves from these things. Farewell.”
15:30 Også, having been dismissed, they went down to Antioch. And gathering the multitude together, they delivered the epistle.
15:31 And when they had read it, they were gladdened by this consolation.
15:32 But Judas and Silas, being also prophets themselves, consoled the brothers with many words, and they were strengthened.
15:33 Derefter, after spending some more time there, they were dismissed with peace, by the brothers, to those who had sent them.
15:34 But it seemed good to Silas to remain there. So Judas alone departed to Jerusalem.
15:35 And Paul and Barnabas remained at Antioch, with many others, teaching and evangelizing the Word of the Lord.
15:36 Derefter, after some days, Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us return to visit the brothers throughout all the cities in which we have preached the Word of the Lord, to see how they are.”
15:37 And Barnabas wanted to take John, who was surnamed Mark, with them also.
15:38 But Paul was saying that he ought not to be received, since he withdrew from them at Pamphylia, and he had not gone with them in the work.
15:39 And there occurred a dissension, to such an extent that they departed from one another. And Barnabas, indeed taking Mark, sailed to Cyprus.
15:40 Alligevel virkelig, Paul, choosing Silas, fastsat, being delivered by the brothers to the grace of God.
15:41 And he traveled through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the Churches, instructing them to keep the precepts of the Apostles and the elders.

Apostlenes Gerninger 16

16:1 Then he arrived at Derbe and Lystra. Og se, a certain disciple named Timothy was there, the son of a faithful Jewish woman, his father a Gentile.
16:2 The brothers who were at Lystra and Iconium rendered good testimony to him.
16:3 Paul wanted this man to travel with him, and taking him, he circumcised him, because of the Jews who were in those places. For they all knew that his father was a Gentile.
16:4 And as they were traveling through the cities, they delivered to them the dogmas to be kept, which were decreed by the Apostles and elders who were at Jerusalem.
16:5 Og helt sikkert, the Churches were being strengthened in faith and were increasing in number every day.
16:6 Derefter, while crossing through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were prevented by the Holy Spirit from speaking the Word in Asia.
16:7 But when they had arrived in Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not permit them.
16:8 Derefter, when they had crossed through Mysia, they descended to Troas.
16:9 And a vision in the night was revealed to Paul of a certain man of Macedonia, standing and pleading with him, og siger: “Cross into Macedonia and help us!"
16:10 Derefter, after he saw the vision, immediately we sought to set out for Macedonia, having been assured that God had called us to evangelize to them.
16:11 And sailing from Troas, taking a direct path, we arrived at Samothrace, and on the following day, at Neapolis,
16:12 and from there to Philippi, which is the preeminent city in the area of Macedonia, a colony. Now we were in this city some days, conferring together.
16:13 Derefter, on the Sabbath day, we were walking outside the gate, beside a river, where there seemed to be a prayer gathering. Og sidder ned, we were speaking with the women who had assembled.
16:14 Og en Kvinde, named Lydia, a seller of purple in the city of Thyatira, a worshiper of God, listened. And the Lord opened her heart to be receptive to what Paul was saying.
16:15 And when she had been baptized, with her household, she pleaded with us, siger: “If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, enter into my house and lodge there.” And she convinced us.
16:16 Så skete det, at, as we were going out to prayer, a certain girl, having a spirit of divination, met with us. She was a source of great profit to her masters, through her divining.
16:17 This girl, following Paul and us, was crying out, siger: “These men are servants of the Most High God! They are announcing to you the way of salvation!"
16:18 Now she behaved in this way for many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you, i Jesu Kristi navn, to go out from her.” And it went away in that same hour.
16:19 But her masters, seeing that the hope of their profit went away, apprehended Paul and Silas, and they brought them to the rulers at the courthouse.
16:20 And presenting them to the magistrates, de sagde: “These men are disturbing our city, since they are Jews.
16:21 And they are announcing a way which is not lawful for us to accept or to observe, since we are Romans.”
16:22 And the people rushed together against them. And the magistrates, tearing their tunics, ordered them to be beaten with staffs.
16:23 And when they had inflicted many scourges on them, they cast them into prison, instructing the guard to watch them diligently.
16:24 And since he had received this kind of order, he cast them into the interior prison cell, and he restricted their feet with stocks.
16:25 Derefter, in the middle of the night, Paul and Silas were praying and praising God. And those who were also in custody were listening to them.
16:26 Alligevel virkelig, there was a sudden earthquake, so great that the foundations of the prison were moved. And immediately all the doors were opened, and the bindings of everyone were released.
16:27 Then the prison guard, having been jarred awake, and seeing the doors of the prison open, drew his sword and intended to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had fled.
16:28 But Paul cried out with a loud voice, siger: “Do no harm to yourself, for we are all here!"
16:29 Then calling for a light, he entered. And trembling, he fell before the feet of Paul and Silas.
16:30 And bringing them outside, han sagde, “Sirs, what must I do, so that I may be saved?"
16:31 So they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and then you will be saved, with your household.”
16:32 And they spoke the Word of the Lord to him, along with all those who were in his house.
16:33 Og han, taking them in the same hour of the night, washed their scourges. And he was baptized, and next his entire household.
16:34 And when he had brought them into his own house, he set a table for them. And he was joyous, with his entire household, believing in God.
16:35 Og når dagslyset var ankommet, the magistrates sent the attendants, siger, “Release those men.”
16:36 But the prison guard reported these words to Paul: “The magistrates have sent to have you released. Så derfor, depart. Gå i fred. "
16:37 But Paul said to them: “They have beaten us publicly, though we were not condemned. They have cast men who are Romans into prison. And now they would drive us away secretly? Not so. I stedet, let them come forward,
16:38 and let us drive them away.” Then the attendants reported these words to the magistrates. And upon hearing that they were Romans, de var bange.
16:39 And arriving, they pleaded with them, and leading them out, they begged them to depart from the city.
16:40 And they went away from the prison and entered into the house of Lydia. And having seen the brothers, they consoled them, and then they set out.

Apostlenes Gerninger 17

17:1 Now when they had walked through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they arrived at Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews.
17:2 Then Paul, i henhold til sædvane, entered to them. And for three Sabbaths he disputed with them about the Scriptures,
17:3 interpreting and concluding that it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise again from the dead, and that “this is the Jesus Christ, whom I am announcing to you.”
17:4 And some of them believed and were joined to Paul and Silas, and a great number of these were from the worshipers and the Gentiles, and not a few were noble women.
17:5 But the Jews, være jaloux, and joining with certain evildoers among the common men, caused a disturbance, and they stirred up the city. And taking up a position near the house of Jason, they sought to lead them out to the people.
17:6 And when they had not found them, they dragged Jason and certain brothers to the rulers of the city, skriger: “For these are the ones who have stirred up the city. And they came here,
17:7 and Jason has received them. And all these men act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus ”.
17:8 And they incited the people. And the rulers of the city, efter at have hørt disse ting,
17:9 and having received an explanation from Jason and the others, released them.
17:10 Alligevel virkelig, the brothers promptly sent Paul and Silas away by night to Beroea. Og da de var ankommet, they entered the synagogue of the Jews.
17:11 But these were more noble than those who were at Thessalonica. They received the Word with all enthusiasm, daily examining the Scriptures to see if these things were so.
17:12 og faktisk, many believed among them, as well as not a few among the honorable Gentile men and women.
17:13 Derefter, when the Jews of Thessalonica had realized that the Word of God was also preached by Paul at Beroea, they went there also, stirring up and disturbing the multitude.
17:14 And then the brothers quickly sent Paul away, so that he might travel by sea. But Silas and Timothy remained there.
17:15 Then those who were leading Paul brought him as far as Athens. And having received an order from him to Silas and Timothy, that they should come to him quickly, de op.
17:16 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred up within him, seeing the city given over to idolatry.
17:17 Også, he was disputing with the Jews in the synagogue, and with the worshipers, and in public places, hele hver dag, with whomever was there.
17:18 Now certain Epicurean and Stoic philosophers were arguing with him. And some were saying, “What does this sower of the Word want to say?” Yet others were saying, “He seems to be an announcer for new demons.” For he was announcing to them Jesus and the Resurrection.
17:19 And apprehending him, they brought him to the Areopagus, siger: “Are we able to know what this new doctrine is, about which you speak?
17:20 For you bring certain new ideas to our ears. And so we would like to know what these things mean.”
17:21 (Now all the Athenians, and arriving visitors, were occupying themselves with nothing other than speaking or hearing various new ideas.)
17:22 But Paul, standing in the middle of the Areopagus, sagde: “Men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are rather superstitious.
17:23 For as I was passing by and noticing your idols, I also found an altar, on which was written: TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Derfor, what you worship in ignorance, this is what I am preaching to you:
17:24 the God who made the world and all that is in it, the One who is the Lord of heaven and earth, who does not live in temples made with hands.
17:25 Neither is he served by the hands of men, as if in need of anything, since it is he who gives to all things life and breath and all else.
17:26 And he has made, out of one, every family of man: to live upon the face of the entire earth, determining the appointed seasons and the limits of their habitation,
17:27 so as to seek God, if perhaps they may consider him or find him, though he is not far from each one of us.
17:28 ‘For in him we live, and move, and exist.’ Just as some of your own poets have said. ‘For we are also of his family.’
17:29 Derfor, since we are of the family of God, we must not consider gold or silver or precious stones, or the engravings of art and of the imagination of man, to be a representation of what is Divine.
17:30 og faktisk, Gud, having looked down to see the ignorance of these times, has now announced to men that everyone everywhere should do penance.
17:31 For he has appointed a day on which he will judge the world in equity, through the man whom he has appointed, offering faith to all, by raising him from the dead.”
17:32 And when they had heard about the Resurrection of the dead, faktisk, some were derisive, while others said, “We will listen to you about this again.”
17:33 So Paul departed from their midst.
17:34 Alligevel virkelig, certain men, adhering to him, did believe. Among these were also Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

18:1 Efter disse ting, having departed from Athens, he arrived at Corinth.
18:2 And upon finding a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, who had recently arrived from Italy with Priscilla his wife, (because Claudius had ordered all Jews to depart from Rome,) he met with them.
18:3 And because he was of the same trade, he lodged with them and was working. (Now they were tentmakers by trade.)
18:4 And he was arguing in the synagogue on every Sabbath, introducing the name of the Lord Jesus. And he was persuading Jews and Greeks.
18:5 And when Silas and Timothy had arrived from Macedonia, Paul stood firm in the Word, testifying to the Jews that Jesus is the Christ.
18:6 But since they were contradicting him and blaspheming, he shook out his garments and said to them: “Your blood is on your own heads. I am clean. Fra nu af, I will go to the Gentiles.”
18:7 And moving from that place, he entered into the house of a certain man, named Titus the Just, a worshiper of God, whose house was adjoined to the synagogue.
18:8 Now Crispus, a leader of the synagogue, believed in the Lord, with his entire house. And many of the Corinthians, upon hearing, believed and were baptized.
18:9 Then the Lord said to Paul, through a vision in the night: "Vær ikke bange. I stedet, speak out and do not be silent.
18:10 For jeg er med dig. And no one will take hold of you, so as to do you harm. For many of the people in this city are with me.”
18:11 Then he settled there for a year and six months, teaching the Word of God among them.
18:12 But when Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews rose up with one accord against Paul. And they brought him to the tribunal,
18:13 siger, “He persuades men to worship God contrary to the law.”
18:14 Derefter, when Paul was beginning to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews: “If this were some matter of injustice, or a wicked deed, O noble Jews, I would support you, as is proper.
18:15 Yet if truly these are questions about a word and names and your law, you should see to it yourselves. I will not be the judge of such things.”
18:16 And he ordered them from the tribunal.
18:17 Men de, apprehending Sosthenes, a leader of the synagogue, beat him in front of the tribunal. And Gallio showed no concern for these things.
18:18 Alligevel virkelig, Paul, after he had remained for many more days, having said goodbye to the brothers, sailed into Syria, and with him were Priscilla and Aquila. Now he had shaved his head in Cenchreae, for he had made a vow.
18:19 And he arrived at Ephesus, and he left them behind there. Alligevel virkelig, he himself, entering into the synagogue, was disputing with the Jews.
18:20 Derefter, although they were asking him to remain for a longer time, he would not agree.
18:21 I stedet, saying goodbye and telling them, “I will return to you again, God willing,” he set out from Ephesus.
18:22 And after going down to Caesarea, he went up to Jerusalem, and he greeted the Church there, and then he descended to Antioch.
18:23 And having spent some length of time there, han satte sig, and he walked in order through the region of Galatia and Phrygia, strengthening all the disciples.
18:24 Now a certain Jew named Apollo, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man who was powerful with the Scriptures, ankom til Efesos.
18:25 He was learned in the Way of the Lord. And being fervent in spirit, he was speaking and teaching the things that are of Jesus, but knowing only the baptism of John.
18:26 Også, he began to act faithfully in the synagogue. And when Priscilla and Aquila had heard him, they took him aside and expounded the Way of the Lord to him more thoroughly.
18:27 Derefter, since he wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers wrote an exhortation to the disciples, so that they might accept him. Og da han var ankommet, he held many discussions with those who had believed.
18:28 For he was vehemently and publicly reproving the Jews, by revealing through the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ.

Apostlenes Gerninger 19

19:1 Nu skete det, at, mens Apollo var i Korinth, Paul, efter at han havde rejst gennem de øvre regioner, ankom til Efesos. Og han mødtes med visse disciple.
19:2 Og han sagde til dem, "Efter at tro, har du modtaget Helligånden?"Men de sagde til ham, "Vi har ikke engang hørt, at der er en Helligånd."
19:3 Alligevel virkelig, han sagde, "Så med hvad er du blevet døbt?"Og de sagde, "Med Johannes 'dåb."
19:4 Så sagde Paul: "Johannes døbte folk med omvendelsens dåb, siger, at de skal tro på den, som er at komme efter ham, det er, i Jesus. "
19:5 På grundlag af disse ting, de blev døbt i Herrens navn Jesus.
19:6 Og da Paulus havde pålagt sine hænder på dem, Helligånden kom over dem. Og de talte i tunger og profeterede.
19:7 Nu mændene var omkring tolv i alt.
19:8 Derefter, ved ankomsten til synagogen, han talte trofast i tre måneder, bestride og overtale dem om Guds rige.
19:9 But when certain ones became hardened and would not believe, cursing the Way of the Lord in the presence of the multitude, Paul, withdrawing from them, separated the disciples, disputing daily in a certain school of Tyrannus.
19:10 Now this was done throughout two years, so that all who were living in Asia listened to the Word of the Lord, both Jews and Gentiles.
19:11 And God was accomplishing powerful and uncommon miracles by the hand of Paul,
19:12 so much so that even when small cloths and wrappings were brought from his body to the sick, the illnesses withdrew from them and the wicked spirits departed.
19:13 Derefter, even some of the traveling Jewish exorcists had attempted to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, siger, “I bind you by oath through Jesus, whom Paul preaches.”
19:14 And there were certain Jews, the seven sons of Sceva, leaders among the priests, who were acting in this way.
19:15 But a wicked spirit responded by saying to them: “Jesus I know, og Paul jeg kender. But who are you?"
19:16 And the man, in whom there was a wicked spirit, leaping at them and getting the better of them both, prevailed against them, so that they fled from that house, naked and wounded.
19:17 Også, this became known to all the Jews and Gentiles who were living at Ephesus. And a fear fell over them all. And the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.
19:18 And many believers were arriving, confessing, and announcing their deeds.
19:19 Then many of those who had followed odd sects brought together their books, and they burned them in the sight of all. And after determining the value of these, they found the price to be fifty thousand denarii.
19:20 På denne måde, the Word of God was increasing strongly and was being confirmed.
19:21 Derefter, when these things were completed, Paul decided in the Spirit, after crossing through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, siger, “Then, after I have been there, it is necessary for me to see Rome also.”
19:22 But sending two of those who were ministering to him, Timothy and Erastus, into Macedonia, he himself remained for a time in Asia.
19:23 Nu dengang, there occurred no small disturbance concerning the Way of the Lord.
19:24 For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith making silver shrines for Diana, was providing no small profit to craftsmen.
19:25 And calling them together, with those who were employed in the same way, han sagde: “Men, you know that our income is from this craft.
19:26 And you are seeing and hearing that this man Paul, by persuasion, has turned away a great multitude, not only from Ephesus, but from nearly all of Asia, siger, ‘These things are not gods which have been made by hands.’
19:27 Dermed, not only is this, our occupation, in danger of being brought into repudiation, but also the temple of the great Diana will be reputed as nothing! Then even her majesty, whom all of Asia and the world worships, will begin to be destroyed.”
19:28 Upon hearing this, they were filled with anger, and they cried out, siger, “Great is Diana of the Ephesians!"
19:29 And the city was filled with confusion. And having seized Gaius and Aristarchus of Macedonia, companions of Paul, they rushed violently, som én, into the amphitheatre.
19:30 Derefter, when Paul wanted to enter to the people, the disciples would not permit him.
19:31 And some of the leaders from Asia, who were his friends, also sent to him, requesting that he not present himself in the amphitheatre.
19:32 But others were crying out various things. For the assembly was in confusion, and most did not know the reason they had been called together.
19:33 So they dragged Alexander from the crowd, while the Jews were propelling him forward. And Alexander, gesturing with his hand for silence, wanted to give the people an explanation.
19:34 But as soon as they realized him to be a Jew, all with one voice, for about two hours, were crying out, “Great is Diana of the Ephesians!"
19:35 And when the scribe had calmed the crowds, han sagde: “Men of Ephesus, now what man is there who does not know that the city of the Ephesians is in the service of the great Diana and of the offspring of Jupiter?
19:36 Derfor, since these things are not able to be contradicted, it is necessary for you to be calm and to do nothing rash.
19:37 For you have brought forward these men, who are neither sacrilegious nor blasphemers against your goddess.
19:38 But if Demetrius and the craftsmen who are with him have a case against anyone, they can convene in the courts, and there are proconsuls. Let them accuse one another.
19:39 But if you would inquire about other things, this can be decided in a lawful assembly.
19:40 For now we are in peril of being convicted of sedition over today’s events, since there is no one guilty (against whom we are able to provide evidence) in this gathering.” And when he had said this, he dismissed the assembly.

Apostlenes Gerninger 20

20:1 Derefter, after the tumult ceased, Paul, calling the disciples to himself and exhorting them, said farewell. Og han satte sig for, so that he might go into Macedonia.
20:2 And when he had walked through those areas and had exhorted them with many sermons, he went into Greece.
20:3 After he had spent three months there, treacheries were planned against him by the Jews, just as he was about to sail into Syria. And having been advised of this, he return through Macedonia.
20:4 Now those accompanying him were Sopater, the son of Pyrrhus from Beroea; and also the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus; and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy; and also Tychicus and Trophimus from Asia.
20:5 These, after they had gone ahead, waited for us at Troas.
20:6 Alligevel virkelig, we sailed from Philippi, after the days of Unleavened Bread, and in five days we went to them at Troas, where we stayed for seven days.
20:7 Derefter, on the first Sabbath, when we had assembled together to break bread, Paul discoursed with them, intending to set out the next day. But he prolonged his sermon into the middle of the night.
20:8 Now there were plenty of lamps in the upper room, where we were gathered.
20:9 And a certain adolescent named Eutychus, sitting on the window sill, was being weighed down by a heavy drowsiness (for Paul was preaching at length). Derefter, as he went to sleep, he fell from the third floor room downward. And when he was lifted up, he was dead.
20:10 When Paul had gone down to him, he laid himself over him and, embracing him, sagde, “Do not worry, for his soul is still within him.”
20:11 Også, going up, and breaking bread, and eating, and having spoken well on until daylight, he then set out.
20:12 Now they had brought the boy in alive, and they were more than a little consoled.
20:13 Then we climbed aboard the ship and sailed to Assos, where we were to take in Paul. For so he himself had decided, since he was making the journey by land.
20:14 And when he had joined us at Assos, we took him in, and we went to Mitylene.
20:15 And sailing from there, den følgende dag, we arrived opposite Chios. And next we landed at Samos. And on the following day we went to Miletus.
20:16 For Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus, so that he would not be delayed in Asia. For he was hurrying so that, if it were possible for him, he might observe the day of Pentecost at Jerusalem.
20:17 Derefter, sender fra Milet til Efesos, han kaldte dem større ved fødslen i kirken.
20:18 Og da de kom til ham og var sammen, han sagde til dem: "Du ved, at fra den første dag, da jeg trådte ind i Asien, Jeg har været med dig, for hele tiden, på denne måde:
20:19 tjene Herren, med al ydmyghed og trods tårer og prøvelser, som der ramte mig fra treacheries jødernes,
20:20 hvordan jeg holdt tilbage noget, der var af værdi, hvor godt jeg har prædiket for dig, og at jeg har lært dig offentligt og i hele husene,
20:21 vidnede både for Jøder og hedninger om omvendelse til Gud og tro på vor Herre Jesus Kristus.
20:22 Og nu, beskue, være forpligtet i ånden, Jeg vil til Jerusalem, ikke at vide, hvad der vil ske med mig der,
20:23 bortset fra at Helligånden, hele hver by, har advaret mig, siger, at kæder og trængsler venter mig i Jerusalem.
20:24 Men jeg frygter ingen af ​​disse ting. Heller ikke jeg overveje mit liv til at være mere værdifuld, fordi det er min egen, forudsat at jeg på en eller anden måde kan fuldføre min egen kurs og den for Ordets, som jeg har modtaget fra Herren Jesus, at vidne om evangeliet om Guds nåde.
20:25 Og nu, beskue, Jeg ved, at du ikke længere vil se mit ansigt, alle jer blandt hvem jeg har rejst, prædikede Guds rige.
20:26 Af denne grund, Jeg ringer til dig som vidner om den dag i dag: at jeg er ren for blod af alle.
20:27 For jeg har ikke vendt sig bort i det mindste fra at annoncere alle Guds Raad til dig.
20:28 Pas på jer selv og hele flokken, over hvilken Helligånden har stationeret dig som biskopper til at herske Guds kirke, som han har købt af sit eget blod.
20:29 Jeg ved, at glubende ulve efter min afrejse vil træde blandt jer, vil ikke skåne hjorden.
20:30 Og blandt jer selv, mænd vil rejse sig, tale forvendte Ting for at lokke disciple efter dem.
20:31 På grund af det, være på vagt, fastholde i hukommelsen, at hele tre år har jeg ikke ophøre, nat og dag, med tårer, at formane hver og en af ​​jer.
20:32 Og nu, Jeg anbefaler dig til Gud og til Ord hans nåde. Han har magt til at opbygge, og for at give en arv til alle, der helligede.
20:33 Jeg har eftertragtet hverken sølv og guld, eller beklædning,
20:34 som du selv kender. For det, der var nødvendigt af mig og af dem, der er med mig, disse hænder har givet.
20:35 Jeg har afsløret alle ting til dig, fordi ved arbejdede på denne måde, det er nødvendigt at støtte de svage og huske ordene fra den Herre Jesus, hvordan sagde han, "Det er saligere at give end at modtage. '"
20:36 Og da han havde sagt disse ting, Knæ, han bad med dem alle.
20:37 Derefter opstod en stor grædende blandt dem alle. Og, der pålægges halsen af ​​Paul, de kyssede ham,
20:38 bedrøvet mest af alt over ordet, som han havde sagt, at de aldrig ville se hans ansigt igen. Og de bragte ham til Skibet.

Apostlenes Gerninger 21

21:1 And after these things had happened, having reluctantly parted from them, we sailed a direct course, arriving at Cos, and on following the day at Rhodes, and from there to Patara.
21:2 And when we had found a ship sailing across to Phoenicia, climbing aboard, we set sail.
21:3 Derefter, after we had caught sight of Cyprus, keeping it to the left, we sailed on to Syria, and we arrived at Tyre. For the ship was going to unload its cargo there.
21:4 Derefter, having found the disciples, we lodged there for seven days. And they were saying to Paul, through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem.
21:5 And when the days were completed, fastsætter, we went on; and they all accompanied us with their wives and children, until we were outside of the city. And we kneeled down at the shore and prayed.
21:6 And when we had said farewell to one another, we climbed aboard the ship. And they returned to their own.
21:7 Alligevel virkelig, having completed our journey by boat from Tyre, we descended to Ptolemais. And greeting the brothers, we lodged with them for one day.
21:8 Derefter, after setting out the next day, we arrived at Caesarea. And upon entering into the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, we stayed with him.
21:9 Now this man had four daughters, virgins, who were prophesying.
21:10 And while we were delayed for some days, a certain prophet from Judea, named Agabus, arrived.
21:11 Og han, when he had come to us, took Paul’s belt, and binding his own feet and hands, han sagde: “Thus says the Holy Spirit: The man whose belt this is, the Jews will bind in this way at Jerusalem. And they will deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.”
21:12 And when we had heard this, both we and those who were from that place begged him not to go up to Jerusalem.
21:13 Then Paul responded by saying: “What do you accomplish by weeping and afflicting my heart? For I am prepared, not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem, for the name of the Lord Jesus.”
21:14 And since we were not able to persuade him, we quieted, siger: “May the will of the Lord be done.”
21:15 Derefter, efter de dage, having made preparations, we ascended to Jerusalem.
21:16 Now some of the disciples from Caesarea also went with us, bringing with them a certain Cypriot named Mnason, a very old disciple, whose guests we would be.
21:17 And when we had arrived at Jerusalem, the brothers received us willingly.
21:18 Derefter, den følgende dag, Paul entered with us to James. And all the elders were assembled.
21:19 And when he had greeted them, he explained each thing that God had accomplished among the Gentiles through his ministry.
21:20 And they, upon hearing it, magnified God and said to him: “You understand, bror, how many thousands there are among the Jews who have believed, and they are all zealous for the law.
21:21 Now they have heard about you, that you are teaching those Jews who are among the Gentiles to withdraw from Moses, telling them that they should not circumcise their sons, nor act according to custom.
21:22 Hvad er næste? The multitude ought to be convened. For they will hear that you have arrived.
21:23 Derfor, do this thing that we ask of you: We have four men, who are under a vow.
21:24 Take these and sanctify yourself with them, and require them to shave their heads. And then everyone will know that the things that they have heard about you are false, but that you yourself walk in keeping with the law.
21:25 Men, about those Gentiles who have believed, we have written a judgment that they should keep themselves from what has been immolated to idols, and from blood, and from what has been suffocated, and from fornication.”
21:26 Then Paul, taking the men on the next day, was purified with them, and he entered the temple, announcing the process of the days of purification, until an oblation would be offered on behalf of each one of them.
21:27 But when the seven days were reaching completion, those Jews who were from Asia, when they had seen him in the temple, incited all the people, and they laid hands on him, skriger:
21:28 ”Mænd af Israel, help! This is the man who is teaching, everyone, everywhere, against the people and the law and this place. Endvidere, he has even brought Gentiles into the temple, and he has violated this holy place.”
21:29 (For they had seen Trophimus, an Ephesian, in the city with him, and they supposed that Paul had brought him into the temple.)
21:30 And the entire city was stirred up. And it happened that the people ran together. And apprehending Paul, they dragged him outside of the temple. And immediately the doors were closed.
21:31 Derefter, as they were seeking to kill him, it was reported to the tribune of the cohort: “All Jerusalem is in confusion.”
21:32 Også, immediately taking soldiers and centurions, he rushed down to them. And when they had seen the tribune and the soldiers, they ceased to strike Paul.
21:33 Then the tribune, nærmer, apprehended him and ordered that he be bound with two chains. And he was asking who he was and what he had done.
21:34 Then they were crying out various things within the crowd. And since he could not understand anything clearly because of the noise, he ordered him to be brought into the fortress.
21:35 And when he had arrived at the stairs, it happened that he was carried up by the soldiers, because of the threat of violence from the people.
21:36 For the multitude of the people were following and crying out, "Tag ham væk!"
21:37 And as Paul was beginning to be brought into the fortress, he said to the tribune, “Is it permissible for me to say something to you?"Og han sagde, “You know Greek?
21:38 Altsaa, are you not that Egyptian who before these days incited a rebellion and led out into the desert four thousand murderous men?"
21:39 But Paul said to him: “I am a man, indeed a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of a well-known city. So I petition you, permit me to speak to the people.”
21:40 And when he had given him permission, Paul, standing on the stairs, motioned with his hand to the people. And when a great silence occurred, he spoke to them in the Hebrew language, siger:

Apostlenes Gerninger 22

22:1 ”Ædle brødre og fædre, listen to the explanation that I now give to you.”
22:2 And when they heard him speaking to them in the Hebrew language, they offered a greater silence.
22:3 Og han sagde: “I am a Jewish man, born at Tarsus in Cilicia, but raised in this city beside the feet of Gamaliel, taught according to the truth of the law of the fathers, zealous for the law, just as all of you also are to this day.
22:4 I persecuted this Way, til døden, binding and delivering into custody both men and women,
22:5 just as the high priest and all those greater by birth bear witness to me. Having received letters from them to the brothers, I journeyed to Damascus, so that I might lead them bound from there to Jerusalem, so that they might be punished.
22:6 But it happened that, as I was traveling and was approaching Damascus at midday, suddenly from heaven a great light shone around me.
22:7 Og falder til jorden, I heard a voice saying to me, ‘Saul, Saul, hvorfor forfølger du mig?'
22:8 And I responded, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ And he said to me, ‘I am Jesus the Nazarene, whom you are persecuting.’
22:9 And those who were with me, faktisk, saw the light, but they did not hear the voice of him who was speaking with me.
22:10 Og jeg sagde, 'Hvad burde jeg gøre, Lord?’ Then the Lord said to me: 'Stig op, and go to Damascus. Og der, you shall be told all that you must do.’
22:11 And since I could not see, because of the brightness of that light, I was led by the hand by my companions, and I went to Damascus.
22:12 Then a certain Ananias, a man in accord with the law, having the testimony of all the Jews who were living there,
22:13 drawing near to me and standing close by, sagde til mig, ‘Brother Saul, se!’ And in that same hour, I looked upon him.
22:14 Men han sagde: ‘The God of our fathers has preordained you, so that you would come to know his will and would see the Just One, and would hear the voice from his mouth.
22:15 For you shall be his witness to all men about those things which you have seen and heard.
22:16 Og nu, why do you delay? Stå op, og blive døbt, and wash away your sins, by invoking his name.’
22:17 Så skete det, at, when I returned to Jerusalem and was praying in the temple, a mental stupor came over me,
22:18 and I saw him saying to me: ‘Hurry! Depart quickly from Jerusalem! For they will not accept your testimony about me.’
22:19 Og jeg sagde: Herre, they know that I am beating and enclosing in prison, throughout every synagogue, those who have believed in you.
22:20 And when the blood of your witness Stephen was poured out, I stood nearby and was consenting, and I watched over the garments of those who put him to death.’
22:21 Og han sagde til mig, ‘Go forth. For I am sending you to far away nations.’ ”
22:22 Now they were listening to him, until this word, and then they lifted up their voice, siger: “Take this kind away from the earth! For it is not fitting for him to live!"
22:23 And while they were shouting, and tossing aside their garments, and casting dust into the air,
22:24 the tribune ordered him to be brought into the fortress, and to be scourged and tortured, in order to discover the reason that they were crying out in this way against him.
22:25 And when they had tied him with straps, Paul said to the centurion who was standing near him, “Is it lawful for you to scourge a man who is a Roman and has not been condemned?"
22:26 Upon hearing this, the centurion went to the tribune and reported it to him, siger: “What do you intend to do? For this man is a Roman citizen.”
22:27 And the tribune, nærmer, sagde til ham: "Fortæl mig. Are you a Roman?"Så sagde han, "Ja."
22:28 And the tribune responded, “I obtained this citizenship at great cost.” And Paul said, “But I was born to it.”
22:29 Derfor, those who were going to torture him, immediately withdrew from him. The tribune was similarly afraid, after he realized that he was a Roman citizen, for he had bound him.
22:30 Men på den næste dag, ønsker at opdage mere flittigt hvad årsagen var, at han blev anklaget af jøderne, han løsladt ham, og han beordrede præsterne at indkalde, med hele råd. Og, producerer Paul, han udstationeret ham blandt dem.

Apostlenes Gerninger 23

23:1 Then Paul, gazing intently at the council, sagde, "Noble brødre, I have spoken with all good conscience before God, even to this present day.”
23:2 And the high priest, Ananias, instructed those who were standing nearby to strike him on the mouth.
23:3 Then Paul said to him: “God shall strike you, you whitewashed wall! For would you sit and judge me according to the law, hvornår, contrary to the law, you order me to be struck?"
23:4 And those who were standing nearby said, “Are you speaking evil about the high priest of God?"
23:5 And Paul said: “I did not know, brødre, that he is the high priest. Thi der er skrevet: ‘You shall not speak evil of the leader of your people.’ ”
23:6 nu Paul, vel vidende, at den ene gruppe var saddukæerne, og den anden var farisæerne, udbrød i rådet: "Noble brødre, Jeg er en Farisæer, søn af farisæere! Det er over det håb og opstandelse fra de døde, at jeg bliver dømt. "
23:7 Og da han havde sagt dette, en uenighed opstod mellem farisæerne og saddukæerne. Og Mængden blev uenig.
23:8 For saddukæerne hævder, at der ikke er nogen opstandelse, og hverken engle, eller spiritus. Men Farisæerne bekende begge disse.
23:9 Så er der opstået en stor protester. Og nogle af Farisæerne, stiger op, kæmpede, siger: "Vi finder intet ondt hos dette Menneske. Hvad hvis en ånd har talt til ham, eller en engel?"
23:10 Og da en stor Splid var gjort, tribunen, frygtede, at Paulus kunne sønderrevet af dem, beordret soldaterne at synke og beslaglægge ham fra deres midte, og bringe ham ind i fæstningen.
23:11 Derefter, på den følgende nat, Herren stod i nærheden af ​​ham og sagde: "Vær konstant. For ligesom du har vidnet om mig i Jerusalem, så også det er nødvendigt for dig at vidne i Rom. "
23:12 And when daylight arrived, some of the Jews gathered together and bound themselves with an oath, saying that they would neither eat nor drink until they had killed Paul.
23:13 Now there were more than forty men who had taken this oath together.
23:14 And they approached the leaders of the priests, and the elders, og de sagde: “We have sworn ourselves by an oath, so that we will taste nothing, until we have killed Paul.
23:15 Derfor, with the council, you should now give notice to the tribune, so that he may bring him to you, as if you intended to determine something else about him. But before he approaches, we have made preparations to put him to death.”
23:16 But when Paul’s sister’s son had heard of this, about their treachery, he went and entered into the fortress, and he reported it to Paul.
23:17 And Paul, calling to him one of the centurions, sagde: “Lead this young man to the tribune. For he has something to tell him.”
23:18 og faktisk, he took him and led him to the tribune, og han sagde, “Paul, the prisoner, asked me to lead this young man to you, since he has something to say to you.”
23:19 Then the tribune, tager ham ved hånden, withdrew with him by themselves, and he asked him: “What is it that you have to tell me?"
23:20 Så sagde han: “The Jews have met to ask you to bring Paul tomorrow to the council, as if they intended to question him about something else.
23:21 men virkelig, you should not believe them, for they would ambush him with more than forty men from among them, who have bound themselves by an oath neither to eat, nor to drink, until they have put him to death. And they are now prepared, hoping for an affirmation from you.”
23:22 And then the tribune dismissed the young man, instructing him not to tell anyone that he had made known these things to him.
23:23 Derefter, having called two centurions, han sagde til dem: “Prepare two hundred soldiers, so that they may go as far as Caesarea, and seventy horsemen, and two hundred spearmen, for the third hour of the night.
23:24 And prepare beasts of burden to carry Paul, so that they may lead him safely to Felix, the governor.”
23:25 For he was afraid, lest perhaps the Jews might seize him and kill him, and that afterwards he would be falsely accused, as if he had accepted a bribe. And so he wrote a letter containing the following:
23:26 “Claudius Lysias, to the most excellent governor, Felix: Vær hilset.
23:27 Denne mand, having been apprehended by the Jews and being about to be put to death by them, I rescued, overwhelming them with soldiers, since I realized that he is a Roman.
23:28 And wanting to know the reason that they objected to him, I brought him into their council.
23:29 And I discovered him to be accused about questions of their law. Alligevel virkelig, nothing deserving of death or imprisonment was within the accusation.
23:30 And when I had been given news of ambushes, which they had prepared against him, I sent him to you, notifying his accusers also, so that they may plead their accusations before you. Farewell.”
23:31 Therefore the soldiers, taking Paul according to their orders, brought him by night to Antipatris.
23:32 Og den næste dag, sending the horsemen to go with him, they returned to the fortress.
23:33 And when they had arrived at Caesarea and had delivered the letter to the governor, they also presented Paul before him.
23:34 And when he had read it and had asked which province he was from, realizing that he was from Cilicia, han sagde:
23:35 “I will hear you, when your accusers have arrived.” And he ordered him to be kept in the praetorium of Herod.

24:1 Derefter, after five days, the high priest Ananias came down with some of the elders and a certain Tertullus, a speaker. And they went to the governor against Paul.
24:2 And having summoned Paul, Tertullus began to accuse him, siger: “Most excellent Felix, since we have much peace through you, and many things may be corrected by your providence,
24:3 we acknowledge this, always and everywhere, with acts of thanksgiving for everything.
24:4 But lest I speak at too great a length, jeg beder dig, by your clemency, to listen to us briefly.
24:5 We have found this man to be pestilent, to be inciting seditions among all the Jews in the entire world, and to be the author of the sedition of the sect of the Nazarenes.
24:6 And he has even been attempting to violate the temple. And having apprehended him, we wanted him to be judged according to our law.
24:7 But Lysias, tribunen, overwhelming us with great violence, snatched him away from our hands,
24:8 ordering his accusers to come to you. From them, you yourself will be able, by judging about all these things, to understand the reason that we accuse him.”
24:9 And then the Jews interjected, saying that these things were so.
24:10 Derefter, since the governor had motioned for him to speak, Paul responded: “Knowing that you have been the judge over this nation for many years, I will give an explanation of myself with an honest soul.
24:11 For, as you may realize, it has only been twelve days since I went up to worship in Jerusalem.
24:12 And they did not find me in the temple arguing with anyone, nor causing a rally of the people: neither in the synagogues, nor in the city.
24:13 And they are not able to prove to you the things about which they now accuse me.
24:14 But I confess this to you, that according to that sect, which they call a heresy, so do I serve my God and Father, believing all that is written in the Law and the Prophets,
24:15 having a hope in God, which these others themselves also expect, that there will be a future resurrection of the just and the unjust.
24:16 And in this, I myself always strive to have a conscience that is lacking in any offence toward God and toward men.
24:17 Derefter, after many years, I went to my nation, bringing alms and offerings and vows,
24:18 through which I obtained purification in the temple: neither with a crowd, nor with a commotion.
24:19 But certain Jews out of Asia are the ones who should have appeared before you to accuse me, if they have anything against me.
24:20 Or let these ones here say if they have found in me any iniquity, while standing before the council.
24:21 For while standing among them, I spoke out solely about this one matter: about the resurrection of the dead. It is about this that I am being judged today by you.”
24:22 Then Felix, after having ascertained much knowledge about this Way, kept them waiting, ved at sige, “When Lysias the tribune has arrived, I will give you a hearing.”
24:23 And he ordered a centurion to guard him, and to take rest, and not to prohibit any of his own from ministering to him.
24:24 Derefter, after some days, Felix, arriving with his wife Drusilla who was a Jew, called for Paul and listened to him about the faith that is in Christ Jesus.
24:25 And after he discoursed about justice and chastity, and about the future judgment, Felix was trembling, and he responded: “For now, gå, but remain under guard. Derefter, at an opportune time, I will summon you.”
24:26 He was also hoping that money might be given to him by Paul, and because of this, he frequently summoned him and spoke with him.
24:27 Derefter, when two years had passed, Felix was succeeded by Portius Festus. And since Felix wanted to show particular favor to the Jews, he left Paul behind as a prisoner.

25:1 Også, when Festus had arrived in the province, efter tre dage, he ascended to Jerusalem from Caesarea.
25:2 Og lederne af præsterne, and those first among the Jews, went to him against Paul. And they were petitioning him,
25:3 asking for favor against him, so that he would order him to be led to Jerusalem, where they were maintaining an ambush in order to kill him along the way.
25:4 But Festus responded that Paul was to be kept in Caesarea, and that he himself would soon go there.
25:5 "Derfor," han sagde, “let those among you who are able, descend at the same time, and if there is any guilt in the man, they may accuse him.”
25:6 Derefter, having stayed among them no more than eight or ten days, he descended to Caesarea. And on the next day, he sat in the judgment seat, and he ordered Paul to be led in.
25:7 And when he had been brought, the Jews who had come down from Jerusalem stood around him, throwing out many serious accusations, none of which they were able to prove.
25:8 Paul offered this defense: “Neither against the law of the Jews, nor against the temple, nor against Caesar, have I offended in any matter.”
25:9 But Festus, wanting to show greater favor to the Jews, responded to Paul by saying: “Are you willing to ascend to Jerusalem and to be judged there about these things before me?"
25:10 But Paul said: “I stand in Caesar’s tribunal, which is where I ought to be judged. I have done no harm to the Jews, as you well know.
25:11 For if I have harmed them, or if I have done anything deserving of death, I do not object to dying. But if there is nothing to these things about which they accuse me, no one is able to deliver me to them. I appeal to Caesar.”
25:12 Then Festus, having spoken with the council, responded: “You have appealed to Caesar, to Caesar you shall go.”
25:13 Og når nogle dage var gået, Kong Agrippa og Berenike ned til Cæsarea, at hilse Festus.
25:14 Og da de opholdt sig der i mange dage, Festus talte til kongen om Paulus, siger: "En mand blev efterladt som en fange af Felix.
25:15 Da jeg var i Jerusalem, lederne af Præsterne og Jødernes Ældste kom til mig om ham, beder om fordømmelse mod ham.
25:16 Jeg svarede dem, at det ikke er skik romerne at fordømme enhver mand, inden han der bliver anklaget er blevet konfronteret med hans Anklagere og har modtaget mulighed for at forsvare sig, således at rense sig for anklagerne.
25:17 Derfor, da de var ankommet her, uden forsinkelse, den følgende dag, sidder i Dommersædet, Jeg bestilte manden til at blive bragt.
25:18 Men da Anklagerne havde rejst sig, de ikke udgør nogen anklage om ham, hvorfra ville jeg formoder det onde.
25:19 I stedet, de bragte mod ham visse tvister om deres egen overtro og om en vis Jesus, der var død, men som Paulus påstod at være i live.
25:20 Derfor, at være i tvivl om den slags spørgsmål, Jeg spurgte ham, om han var villig rejse til Jerusalem og at blive dømt der om disse ting.
25:21 Men da Paulus var tiltalende at blive holdt til afgørelse før Augustus, Jeg beordrede ham til at blive holdt, indtil jeg kan sende ham til Kejseren. "
25:22 Then Agrippa said to Festus: “I myself also want to hear the man.” “Tomorrow," han sagde, “you shall hear him.”
25:23 And on the next day, when Agrippa and Bernice had arrived with great ostentation and had entered into the auditorium with the tribunes and the principal men of the city, Paul was brought in, at the order of Festus.
25:24 And Festus said: “King Agrippa, and all who are present together with us, you see this man, about whom all the multitude of the Jews disturbed me at Jerusalem, petitioning and clamoring that he should not be allowed to live any longer.
25:25 Sandelig, I have discovered nothing brought forth against him that is worthy of death. But since he himself has appealed to Augustus, it was my judgment to send him.
25:26 But I have not determined what to write to the emperor about him. På grund af det, I have brought him before you all, and especially before you, O king Agrippa, så det, once an inquiry has occurred, I may have something to write.
25:27 For it seems to me unreasonable to send a prisoner and not to indicate the accusations set against him.”

Apostlenes Gerninger 26

26:1 Alligevel virkelig, Agrippa said to Paul, “It is permitted for you to speak for yourself.” Then Paul, extending his hand, began to offer his defense.
26:2 “I consider myself blessed, O king Agrippa, that I am to give my defense today before you, about everything of which I am accused by the Jews,
26:3 especially since you know everything that pertains to the Jews, both customs and questions. På grund af det, I beg you to listen to me patiently.
26:4 Og helt sikkert, all the Jews know about my life from my youth, which had its beginning among my own people in Jerusalem.
26:5 They knew me well from the beginning, (if they would be willing to offer testimony) for I lived according to the most determined sect of our religion: as a Pharisee.
26:6 Og nu, it is in the hope of the Promise which was made by God to our fathers that I stand subject to judgment.
26:7 It is the Promise that our twelve tribes, worshiping night and day, hope to see. About this hope, Konge, I am accused by the Jews.
26:8 Why should it be judged so unbelievable with you all that God might raise the dead?
26:9 Og helt sikkert, I myself formerly considered that I ought to act in many ways which are contrary to the name of Jesus the Nazarene.
26:10 This is also how I acted at Jerusalem. Også, I enclosed many holy persons in prison, having received authority from the leaders of the priests. And when they were to be killed, I brought the sentence.
26:11 And in every synagogue, frequently while punishing them, I compelled them to blaspheme. And being all the more maddened against them, I persecuted them, even to foreign cities.
26:12 Derefter, as I was going to Damascus, with authority and permission from the high priest,
26:13 at midday, Konge, I and those who were also with me, saw along the way a light from heaven shining around me with a splendor greater than that of the sun.
26:14 And when we had all fallen down to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me in the Hebrew language: ‘Saul, Saul, hvorfor forfølger du mig? It is hard for you to kick against the goad.’
26:15 Så sagde jeg, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus, som du forfølger.
26:16 But rise up and stand on your feet. For I appeared to you for this reason: so that I may establish you as a minister and a witness concerning the things that you have seen, and concerning the things that I will show to you:
26:17 rescuing you from the people and the nations to which I am now sending you,
26:18 in order to open their eyes, so that they may be converted from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive the remission of sins and a place among the saints, through the faith that is in me.’
26:19 From then on, O king Agrippa, I was not unbelieving to the heavenly vision.
26:20 But I preached, first to those who are at Damascus and at Jerusalem, and then to the entire region of Judea, og for Hedningerne, so that they would repent and convert to God, doing the works that are worthy of repentance.
26:21 It was for this reason that the Jews, having apprehended me when I was in the temple, attempted to kill me.
26:22 But having been aided by the help of God, selv den dag i dag, I stand witnessing to the small and the great, saying nothing beyond what the Prophets and Moses have said would be in the future:
26:23 that the Christ would suffer, and that he would be the first from the resurrection of the dead, and that he would bring light to the people and to the nations.”
26:24 While he was speaking these things and presenting his defense, Festus said with a loud voice: “Paul, you are insane! Too much studying has turned you to insanity.”
26:25 And Paul said: “I am not insane, most excellent Festus, but rather I am speaking words of truth and sobriety.
26:26 For the king knows about these things. To him also, I am speaking with constancy. For I think that none of these things are unknown to him. And neither were these things done in a corner.
26:27 Do you believe the Prophets, O king Agrippa? I know that you believe.”
26:28 Then Agrippa said to Paul, “To some extent, you persuade me to become a Christian.”
26:29 And Paul said, “I hope to God that, both to a small extent and to a great extent, not only you, but also all those who hear me this day will become just as I also am, except for these chains.”
26:30 And the king rose up, and the governor, and Bernice, and those who were sitting with them.
26:31 And when they had withdrawn, they were speaking among themselves, siger, “This man has done nothing worthy of death, nor of imprisonment.”
26:32 Then Agrippa said to Festus, “This man could have been released, if he had not appealed to Caesar.”

Apostlenes Gerninger 27

27:1 Then it was decided to send him by ship to Italy, and that Paul, with the others in custody, should be delivered to a centurion named Julius, of the cohort of Augusta.
27:2 After climbing aboard a ship from Adramyttium, we set sail and began to navigate along the ports of Asia, with Aristarchus, the Macedonian from Thessalonica, joining us.
27:3 And on the following day, we arrived at Sidon. And Julius, treating Paul humanely, permitted him to go to his friends and to look after himself.
27:4 And when we had set sail from there, we navigated below Cyprus, because the winds were contrary.
27:5 And navigating though the sea of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we arrived at Lystra, which is in Lycia.
27:6 And there the centurion found a ship from Alexandria sailing to Italy, and he transferred us to it.
27:7 And when we had sailed slowly for many days and had barely arrived opposite Cnidus, for the wind was hindering us, we sailed to Crete, near Salmone.
27:8 And barely being able to sail past it, we arrived at a certain place, which is called Good Shelter, next to which was the city of Lasea.
27:9 Derefter, after much time had passed, and since sailing would no longer be prudent because the Fast Day had now passed, Paul consoled them,
27:10 og han sagde til dem: “Men, I perceive that the voyage is now in danger of injury and much damage, not only to the cargo and the ship, but also to our own lives.”
27:11 But the centurion put more trust in the captain and the navigator of the ship, than in the things being said by Paul.
27:12 And since it was not a fitting port in which to winter, the majority opinion was to sail from there, so that somehow they might be able to arrive at Phoenicia, in order to winter there, at a port of Crete, which looks out toward the southwest and northwest.
27:13 And since the south wind was blowing gently, they thought that they might reach their goal. And after they had set out from Asson, they weighed anchor at Crete.
27:14 But not long afterward, a violent wind came against them, which is called the Northeast Wind.
27:15 And once the ship had been caught in it and was not able to strive against the wind, giving over the ship to the winds, we were driven along.
27:16 Derefter, being forced along a certain island, which is called the Tail, we were barely able to hold on to the ship’s lifeboat.
27:17 When this was taken up, they used it to assist in securing the ship. For they were afraid that they might run aground. And having lowered the sails, they were being driven along in this way.
27:18 Derefter, since we were being tossed about strongly by the tempest, den følgende dag, they threw the heavy items overboard.
27:19 And on the third day, with their own hands, they threw the equipment of the ship overboard.
27:20 Derefter, when neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no end to the storm was imminent, all hope for our safety was now taken away.
27:21 And after they had fasted for a long time, Paul, standing in their midst, sagde: "Sikkert, men, you should have listened to me and not set out from Crete, so as to cause this injury and loss.
27:22 Og nu, let me persuade you to be courageous in soul. For there shall be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship.
27:23 For an Angel of God, who is assigned to me and whom I serve, stood beside me this night,
27:24 siger: ‘Do not be afraid, Paul! It is necessary for you to stand before Caesar. Og se, God has given to you all those who are sailing with you.’
27:25 På grund af det, men, be courageous in soul. For I trust God that this will happen in the same way that it has been told to me.
27:26 But it is necessary for us to arrive at a certain island.”
27:27 Derefter, after the fourteenth night arrived, as we were navigating in the sea of Adria, about the middle of the night, the sailors believed that they saw some portion of the land.
27:28 And upon dropping a weight, they found a depth of twenty paces. And some distance from there, they found a depth of fifteen paces.
27:29 Derefter, fearing that we might happen upon rough places, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and they were hoping for daylight to arrive soon.
27:30 Alligevel virkelig, the sailors were seeking a way to flee from the ship, for they had lowered a lifeboat into the sea, on the pretext that they were attempting to cast anchors from the bow of the ship.
27:31 So Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, “Unless these men remain in the ship, you will not be able to be saved.”
27:32 Then the soldiers cut the ropes to the lifeboat, and they allowed it to fall.
27:33 And when it began to be light, Paul requested that they all take food, siger: “This is the fourteenth day that you have been waiting and continuing to fast, taking nothing.
27:34 Af denne grund, I beg you to accept food for the sake of your health. For not a hair from the head of any of you shall perish.”
27:35 Og da han havde sagt disse ting, taking bread, he gave thanks to God in the sight of them all. And when he had broken it, he began to eat.
27:36 Then they all became more peaceful in soul. And they also took food.
27:37 Sandelig, we were two hundred and seventy-six souls on the ship.
27:38 And having been nourished with food, they lightened the ship, casting the wheat into the sea.
27:39 And when day had arrived, they did not recognize the landscape. Alligevel virkelig, they caught sight of a certain narrow inlet having a shore, into which they thought it might be possible to force the ship.
27:40 And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves to the sea, at the same time loosing the restraints of the rudders. Også, raising the mainsail to the gusting wind, they pressed on toward the shore.
27:41 And when we happened upon a place open to two seas, they ran the ship aground. og faktisk, the bow, being immobilized, remained fixed, but truly the stern was broken by the violence of the sea.
27:42 Then the soldiers were in agreement that they should kill the prisoners, lest anyone, after escaping by swimming, might flee.
27:43 But the centurion, wanting to save Paul, prohibited it from being done. And he ordered those who were able to swim to jump in first, and to escape, and to get to the land.
27:44 And as for the others, some they carried on boards, and others on those things that belonged to the ship. And so it happened that every soul escaped to the land.

28:1 And after we had escaped, we then realized that the island was called Malta. Alligevel virkelig, the natives offered us no small amount of humane treatment.
28:2 For they refreshed us all by kindling a fire, because rain was imminent and because of the cold.
28:3 But when Paul had gathered together a bundle of twigs, and had placed them on the fire, a viper, which had been drawn to the heat, fastened itself to his hand.
28:4 Og virkelig, when the natives saw the beast hanging from his hand, they were saying to one another: "Sikkert, this man must be a murderer, for though he escaped from the sea, vengeance will not permit him to live.”
28:5 But shaking off the creature into the fire, he indeed suffered no ill effects.
28:6 But they were supposing that he would soon swell up, and then would suddenly fall down and die. But having waited a long time, and seeing no ill effects in him, they changed their minds and were saying that he was a god.
28:7 Now among these places were estates owned by the ruler of the island, named Publius. Og han, taking us in, showed us kind hospitality for three days.
28:8 Then it happened that the father of Publius lay ill with a fever and with dysentery. Paul entered to him, and when he had prayed and had laid his hands on him, he saved him.
28:9 When this had been done, all who had diseases on the island approached and were cured.
28:10 And then they also presented us with many honors. And when we were ready to set sail, they gave us whatever we needed.
28:11 Også, efter tre måneder, we sailed in a ship from Alexandria, whose name was ‘the Castors,’ and which had wintered at the island.
28:12 And when we had arrived at Syracuse, we were delayed there for three days.
28:13 From there, sailing close to the shore, we arrived at Rhegium. And after one day, with the south wind blowing, we arrived on the second day at Puteoli.
28:14 der, after locating the brothers, we were asked to remain with them for seven days. And then we went on to Rome.
28:15 Og der, when the brothers had heard of us, they went to meet us as far as the Forum of Appius and the Three Taverns. And when Paul had seen them, giving thanks to God, he took courage.
28:16 Og da vi var ankommet til Rom, Paulus fik tilladelse til at holde af ham selv, med en soldat til at bevogte ham.
28:17 Og efter den tredje dag, han sammenkaldte lederne af jøderne. Og da de havde indkaldt, han sagde til dem: "Noble brødre, Jeg har ikke gjort noget mod folket, eller imod skikke fædrenes, men jeg blev leveret som en fange fra Jerusalem i hænderne på romerne.
