Apostelgeschichte 1

1:1 Sicherlich, O Theophilus, I composed the first discourse about everything that Jesus began to do and to teach,
1:2 instructing the Apostles, whom he had chosen through the Holy Spirit, even until the day on which he was taken up.
1:3 He also presented himself alive to them, after his Passion, appearing to them throughout forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God with many elucidations.
1:4 And dining with them, he instructed them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but that they should wait for the Promise of the Father, “about which you have heard," er sagte, “from my own mouth.
1:5 For John, tatsächlich, baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit, not many days from now.”
1:6 Deshalb, those who had assembled together questioned him, Sprichwort, "Herr, is this the time when you will restore the kingdom of Israel?"
1:7 Aber er sprach zu ihnen:: “It is not yours to know the times or the moments, which the Father has set by his own authority.
1:8 But you shall receive the power of the Holy Spirit, passing over you, and you shall be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.”
1:9 Und als er dies gesagt hatte,, while they were watching, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight.
1:10 And while they were watching him going up to heaven, erblicken, two men stood near them in white vestments.
1:11 Und sie sagten:: “Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking up toward heaven? Dieser Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, shall return in just the same way that you have seen him going up to heaven.”
1:12 Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mountain, which is called Olivet, which is next to Jerusalem, within a Sabbath day’s journey.
1:13 And when they had entered into the cenacle, they ascended to the place where Peter and John, James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, und Judas von James, were staying.
1:14 All these were persevering with one accord in prayer with the women, and with Mary, the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.
1:15 Damals, Peter, steigt in der Mitte der Brüder nach oben, sagte, (jetzt die Menge von Männern war insgesamt etwa hundertzwanzig):
1:16 "Edler Brüder, die Schrift erfüllt werden müssen, die der Heilige Geist durch den Mund Davids über Judas vorhergesagt, wer war der Anführer derer, die Jesus ergriffen.
1:17 Er hatte unter uns gezählt worden, und er wurde durch das Los für diesen Dienst gewählt.
1:18 And this man certainly possessed an estate from the wages of iniquity, und so, having been hanged, he burst open in the middle and all his internal organs poured out.
1:19 And this became known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that this field was called in their language, Akeldama, das ist, ‘Field of Blood.’
1:20 Denn es wurde in dem Buch der Psalmen geschrieben: "Lassen Sie ihre Behausung öde sein und kann dort niemand sein, der in ihr wohnt,'Und' Let eine andere sein Episkopat nehmen. "
1:21 Deshalb, es ist nötig dass, aus diesen Männern, die mit uns wurden während der gesamten Zeit der Montage, dass der Herr Jesus in und unter uns gingen,
1:22 von der Taufe des Johannes, bis zu dem Tag, als er von uns genommen, einer von ihnen mit uns Zeuge seiner Auferstehung gemacht werden. "
1:23 Und sie stellten zwei: Joseph, die hieß Barsabas, wer war Zunamen Justus, und Matthias.
1:24 und beten, Sie sagten: "Würdest du, O Herr, wer weiß, das Herz eines jeden, zeigen, welche eine der beiden von Ihnen gewählten,
1:25 nehmen einen Platz in diesen Dienst und Apostel, von denen Ausflüchte Judas, so dass er zu seinem eigenen Platz gehen könnte. "
1:26 Und sie warfen das Los über sie, und das Los fiel auf Matthias. Und er wurde mit den elf Aposteln.

Apostelgeschichte 2

2:1 Und als die Tage von Pfingsten wurden abgeschlossen, sie waren alle zusammen in der gleichen Stelle.
2:2 Und plötzlich, ein Brausen vom Himmel kam, wie die eines Wind nähern heftig, und erfüllte das ganze Haus, in dem sie saßen.
2:3 Und es erschienen ihnen Zungen getrennt, wie von Feuer, die bereits geregelt auf einen jeden von ihnen.
2:4 Und sie wurden alle mit dem Heiligen Geist erfüllt. Und sie begannen in verschiedenen Sprachen zu sprechen, so wie der Heilige Geist geschenkt Beredsamkeit sie.
2:5 Nun gab es Juden in Jerusalem bleiben, fromme Männer aus allen Völkern, die unter dem Himmel.
2:6 Und wenn dieser Ton aufgetreten, kam die Menge zusammen und wurde im Geist verwirrt, weil jeder sie zuhörte in seiner eigenen Sprache reden.
2:7 Dann waren alle erstaunt, und sie fragte mich,, Sprichwort: "Siehe, sind nicht alle diese Galiläer, die hier sprechen?
2:8 Und wie kommt es, dass wir jeder hörte sie in unserer eigenen Sprache haben, in denen wir geboren wurden?
2:9 Parther und Meder und Elamiter, und diejenigen, die bewohnen Mesopotamien, Judäa und Kappadozien, Pontus und Asien,
2:10 Phrygien und Pamphylien, Ägypten und dem Gebiet Libyens, die um Cyrene sind, und Neuankömmlinge der Römer,
2:11 ebenfalls Juden und neue Mitglieder, Kreter und Araber: wir haben sie in unseren eigenen Sprachen die großen Taten Gottes reden gehört.“
2:12 And they were all astonished, und sie fragte mich,, saying to one another: “But what does this mean?"
2:13 But others mockingly said, “These men are full of new wine.”
2:14 Aber Peter, Stehen mit dem elf bis, erhob seine Stimme, und er sprach zu ihnen:: "Männer von Judäa, und alle diejenigen, die bleiben in Jerusalem, das sei euch bekannt sein, und neige deine Ohren meine Worte.
2:15 For these men are not inebriated, as you suppose, for it is the third hour of the day.
2:16 But this is what was spoken of by the prophet Joel:
2:17 ‘And this shall be: in the last days, spricht der Herr,, I will pour out, from my Spirit, upon all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy. And your youths shall see visions, and your elders shall dream dreams.
2:18 Und sicher, upon my men and women servants in those days, I will pour out from my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.
2:19 And I will bestow wonders in heaven above, and signs on earth below: blood and fire and the vapor of smoke.
2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and manifest day of the Lord arrives.
2:21 Und das soll sein: whoever shall invoke the name of the Lord will be saved.’
2:22 Männer von Israel, hören diese Worte: Jesus von Nazareth ist ein Mann bestätigt, von Gott unter euch durch die Wunder und Wunder und Zeichen, die Gott durch ihn in eurer Mitte erreicht, so wie Sie auch wissen,.
2:23 Dieser Mann, unter dem endgültigen Plan und Vorsehung Gottes,, wurde durch die Hände der Ungerechten geliefert, behaftet, und zu Tode gebracht.
2:24 Und er, den hat Gott auferweckt hat die Leiden der Hölle gebrochen, es war für jeden Fall für ihn unmöglich, von ihm gehalten werden.
2:25 Für David sagte über ihn: "Sah ich den Herrn immer in meinen Augen, denn er ist zu meiner Rechten,, so dass ich nicht bewegt werden kann,.
2:26 Deswegen, mein Herz jubelte, und meine Zunge hat, jubelte. Darüber hinaus, mein Fleisch wird ruhen auch in der Hoffnung,.
2:27 Denn du wirst meine Seele nicht in die Hölle verlassen, noch werden Sie Ihren Heilige erlauben Korruption zu sehen.
2:28 Sie haben mir kund die Wege des Lebens. Sie werden mich vollständig mit Glück durch Ihre Anwesenheit zu füllen. "
2:29 Edler Brüder, Erlauben Sie mir frei, um Sie über den Patriarchen David zu sprechen: denn er starb und wurde begraben, und sein Grab ist bei uns, sogar bis auf den heutigen Tag.
2:30 Deshalb, er war ein Prophet, denn er wusste, dass Gott einen Eid mit ihm über die Frucht seiner Lenden geschworen hatte,, über den Einen, der auf seinem Thron sitzen würde.
2:31 In Erwartung dieses, er sprach über die Auferstehung des Christus. Denn er war weder in der Hölle hinter sich gelassen, noch sein Fleisch die Verwesung sehe.
2:32 Dieser Jesus, Gott erweckte wieder, und dafür sind wir alle Zeugen.
2:33 Deshalb, wobei auf der rechten Hand Gottes erhöht, und vom Vater die Verheißung des Heiligen Geistes empfangen hat,, goss er dies aus, sehen, wie Sie jetzt und hören.
2:34 For David did not ascend into heaven. But he himself said: "Der Herr sprach zu meinem Herrn: Setze dich zu meiner Rechten,
2:35 until I make your enemies your footstool.’
2:36 Deshalb, may the entire house of Israel know most certainly that God has made this same Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”
2:37 Now when they had heard these things, they were contrite in heart, and they said to Peter and to the other Apostles: “What should we do, noble brothers?"
2:38 Doch wirklich, Peter said to them: “Do penance; and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins. And you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
2:39 For the Promise is for you and for your sons, and for all who are far away: for whomever the Lord our God will have called.”
2:40 Und dann, with very many other words, he testified and he exhorted them, Sprichwort, “Save yourselves from this depraved generation.”
2:41 Deshalb, those who accepted his discourse were baptized. Und etwa dreitausend Seelen wurden an diesem Tag hinzugefügt.
2:42 Now they were persevering in the doctrine of the Apostles, and in the communion of the breaking of the bread, and in the prayers.
2:43 And fear developed in every soul. Ebenfalls, many miracles and signs were accomplished by the Apostles in Jerusalem. And there was a great awe in everyone.
2:44 And then all who believed were together, and they held all things in common.
2:45 They were selling their possessions and belongings, and dividing them to all, just as any of them had need.
2:46 Ebenfalls, they continued, Täglich, to be of one accord in the temple and to break bread among the houses; and they took their meals with exultation and simplicity of heart,
2:47 praising God greatly, and holding favor with all the people. And every day, the Lord increased those who were being saved among them.

Apostelgeschichte 3

3:1 Now Peter and John went up to the temple at the ninth hour of prayer.
3:2 And a certain man, who was lame from his mother’s womb, was being carried in. They would lay him every day at the gate of the temple, which is called the Beautiful, so that he might request alms from those entering into the temple.
3:3 And this man, when he had seen Peter and John beginning to enter the temple, was begging, so that he might receive alms.
3:4 Then Peter and John, sah ihn, sagte,, “Look at us.”
3:5 And he looked intently at them, hoping that he might receive something from them.
3:6 But Peter said: “Silver and gold is not mine. But what I have, I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, rise up and walk.”
3:7 And taking him by the right hand, he lifted him up. And immediately his legs and feet were strengthened.
3:8 And leaping up, he stood and walked around. And he entered with them into the temple, walking and leaping and praising God.
3:9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God.
3:10 And they recognized him, that he was the same one who was sitting for alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple. And they were filled with awe and amazement at what had happened to him.
3:11 Dann, as he held on to Peter and John, all the people ran to them at the portico, which is called Solomon’s, in astonishment.
3:12 Aber Peter, Sehen Sie diese, responded to the people: “Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this? Or why do you stare at us, as if it were by our own strength or power that we caused this man to walk?
3:13 The God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his Son Jesus, whom you, tatsächlich, handed over and denied before the face of Pilate, when he was giving judgment to release him.
3:14 Then you denied the Holy and Just One, and petitioned for a murderous man to be given to you.
3:15 Wirklich, it was the Author of Life whom you put to death, whom God raised from the dead, to whom we are witnesses.
3:16 And by faith in his name, this man, whom you have seen and known, has confirmed his name. And faith through him has given this man complete health in the sight of you all.
3:17 Und jetzt, Brüder, I know that you did this through ignorance, just as your leaders also did.
3:18 But in this way God has fulfilled the things that he announced beforehand through the mouth of all the Prophets: that his Christ would suffer.
3:19 Deshalb, repent and be converted, so that your sins may be wiped away.
3:20 Und dann, when the time of consolation will have arrived from the presence of the Lord, he will send the One who was foretold to you, Jesus Christus,
3:21 whom heaven certainly must take up, until the time of the restoration of all things, which God has spoken of by the mouth of his holy prophets, from ages past.
3:22 Tatsächlich, Moses sagte: ‘For the Lord your God shall raise up a Prophet for you from your brothers, one like me; the same shall you listen to according to everything whatsoever that he shall speak to you.
3:23 Und das soll sein: every soul who will not listen to that Prophet shall be exterminated from the people.’
3:24 And all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and thereafter, have announced these days.
3:25 You are sons of the prophets and of the testament which God has appointed for our fathers, saying to Abraham: ‘And by your offspring all the families of the earth shall be blessed.’
3:26 God raised up his Son and sent him first to you, to bless you, so that each one may turn himself away from his wickedness.”

Apostelgeschichte 4

4:1 But while they were speaking to the people, the priests and the magistrate of the temple and the Sadducees overwhelmed them,
4:2 being grieved that they were teaching the people and announcing in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
4:3 And they laid hands on them, and they placed them under guard until the next day. For it was now evening.
4:4 But many of those who had heard the word believed. And the number of men became five thousand.
4:5 And it happened on the next day that their leaders and elders and scribes gathered together in Jerusalem,
4:6 including Annas, der Hohepriester, und Kaiphas, and John and Alexander, and as many as were of the priestly family.
4:7 And stationing them in the middle, they questioned them: “By what power, or in whose name, have you done this?"
4:8 Dann Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, sagte zu ihnen:: “Leaders of the people and elders, Hör mal zu.
4:9 If we today are judged by a good deed done to an infirm man, by which he has been made whole,
4:10 let it be known to all of you and to all of the people of Israel, that in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God has raised from the dead, by him, this man stands before you, healthy.
4:11 He is the stone, which was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the head of the corner.
4:12 And there is no salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given to men, by which it is necessary for us to be saved.”
4:13 Dann, seeing the constancy of Peter and John, having verified that they were men without letters or learning, sie wunderten. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.
4:14 Ebenfalls, seeing the man who had been cured standing with them, they were unable to say anything to contradict them.
4:15 But they ordered them to withdraw outside, away from the council, and they conferred among themselves,
4:16 Sprichwort: “What shall we do to these men? For certainly a public sign has been done through them, before all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. It is manifest, and we cannot deny it.
4:17 But lest it spread further among the people, let us threaten them not to speak anymore in this name to any man.”
4:18 And calling them in, they warned them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.
4:19 Doch wirklich, Peter and John said in response to them: “Judge whether it is just in the sight of God to listen to you, rather than to God.
4:20 For we are unable to refrain from speaking the things that we have seen and heard.”
4:21 Aber sie, threatening them, sent them away, having not found a way that they might punish them because of the people. For all were glorifying the things that had been done in these events.
4:22 For the man in whom this sign of a cure had been accomplished was more than forty years old.
4:23 Dann, having been released, they went to their own, and they reported in full what the leaders of the priests and the elders had said to them.
4:24 And when they had heard it, einmütig, they lifted up their voice to God, und sie sagte,: "Herr, you are the One who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them,
4:25 die, by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David, your servant, sagte,: ‘Why have the Gentiles been seething, and why have the people been pondering nonsense?
4:26 The kings of the earth have stood up, and the leaders have joined together as one, against the Lord and against his Christ.’
4:27 For truly Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, joined together in this city against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed
4:28 to do what your hand and your counsel had decreed would be done.
4:29 Und jetzt, O Herr, look upon their threats, and grant to your servants that they may speak your word with all confidence,
4:30 by extending your hand in cures and signs and miracles, to be done through the name of your holy Son, Jesus.”
4:31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered was moved. Und sie wurden alle mit dem Heiligen Geist erfüllt. And they were speaking the Word of God with confidence.
4:32 Dann wird die Menge der Gläubigen war ein Herz und eine Seele. Sagte auch nicht jemand, dass eines der Dinge, die er besaß, seine eigenen waren, aber alles in allem waren ihnen gemeinsam.
4:33 Und mit großer Kraft, Die Apostel waren an die Auferstehung Jesu Christi, unseres Herrn Rendering Zeugnis. Und große Gnade war in allen.
4:34 Und keiner war jemand unter ihnen in Not. Denn so viele waren Besitzer der Felder oder Häuser, Verkauf dieser, den Erlös der Dinge zu bringen, dass sie verkauften,
4:35 und wurden sie vor den Füßen der Apostel platzieren. Dann wurde es zu jedem geteilten, so wie er braucht.
4:36 Now Joseph, who the Apostles surnamed Barnabas (which is translated as ‘son of consolation’), who was a Levite of Cyprian descent,
4:37 since he had land, he sold it, and he brought the proceeds and placed these at the feet of the Apostles.

Apostelgeschichte 5

5:1 But a certain man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a field,
5:2 and he was deceitful about the price of the field, with his wife’s consent. And bringing only part of it, he placed it at the feet of the Apostles.
5:3 But Peter said: "Ananias, why has Satan tempted your heart, so that you would lie to the Holy Spirit and be deceitful about the price of the land?
5:4 Did it not belong to you while you retained it? And having sold it, was it not in your power? Why have you set this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men, but to God!"
5:5 Then Ananias, upon hearing these words, fell down and expired. And a great fear overwhelmed all who heard of it.
5:6 And the young men rose up and removed him; and carrying him out, they buried him.
5:7 Then about the space of three hours passed, and his wife entered, not knowing what had happened.
5:8 And Peter said to her, "Sag mir, woman, if you sold the field for this amount?” And she said, "Ja,, for that amount.”
5:9 And Peter said to her: “Why have you agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Siehe,, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they shall carry you out!"
5:10 Sofort, she fell down before his feet and expired. Then the young men entered and found her dead. And they carried her out and buried her next to her husband.
5:11 And a great fear came over the entire Church and over all who heard these things.
5:12 And through the hands of the Apostles many signs and wonders were accomplished among the people. And they all met with one accord at Solomon’s portico.
5:13 And among the others, no one dared to join himself to them. But the people magnified them.
5:14 Now the multitude of men and women who believed in the Lord was ever increasing,
5:15 so much so that they laid the infirm in the streets, placing them on beds and stretchers, so dass, as Peter arrived, at least his shadow might fall upon any one of them, and they would be freed from their infirmities.
5:16 But a multitude also hurried to Jerusalem from the neighboring cities, carrying the sick and those troubled by unclean spirits, who were all healed.
5:17 Then the high priest and all those who were with him, das ist, the heretical sect of the Sadducees, rose up and were filled with jealousy.
5:18 And they laid hands on the Apostles, and they placed them in the common prison.
5:19 But in the night, an Angel of the Lord opened the doors of the prison and led them out, Sprichwort,
5:20 “Go and stand in the temple, speaking to the people all these words of life.”
5:21 And when they had heard this, they entered the temple at first light, and they were teaching. Then the high priest, und diejenigen, die mit ihm waren, approached, and they called together the council and all the elders of the sons of Israel. And they sent to the prison to have them brought.
5:22 But when the attendants had arrived, und, upon opening the prison, had not found them, they returned and reported to them,
5:23 Sprichwort: “We found the prison certainly locked up with all diligence, and the guards standing before the door. But upon opening it, we found no one within.”
5:24 Dann, when the magistrate of the temple and the chief priests heard these words, they were uncertain about them, as to what should happen.
5:25 But someone arrived and reported to them, "Siehe, the men whom you placed in prison are in the temple, standing and teaching the people.”
5:26 Then the magistrate, with the attendants, went and brought them without force. For they were afraid of the people, lest they be stoned.
5:27 Und als hätten sie sie gebracht, sie standen sie vor dem Rat. Und der Hohepriester fragte sie,
5:28 und sagte: „Wir bestellen Sie dringend, nicht in diesem Namen zu lehren. Denn siehe, Sie haben Jerusalem erfüllt mit eurer Lehre, und Sie möchten das Blut dieses Menschen auf uns bringen.“
5:29 Aber Petrus und die Apostel antworteten,: „Es ist notwendig, Gott zu gehorchen, mehr als Männer.
5:30 Der Gott unserer Väter hat Jesus auferweckt, wen Sie töten die von ihm hängen an einem Baum.
5:31 Er ist es, den Gott zu seinen Rechten als Herrscher und Retter erhoben hat, um Buße und Vergebung der Sünden, nach Israel zu bieten.
5:32 Und wir sind Zeugen dieser Dinge, mit dem Heiligen Geist, dem Gott an alle, die gehorsam sind ihm gegeben.“
5:33 Wann hatte sie diese Dinge zu hören, sie waren tief verwundet, und sie planten, sie zu Tode bringen.
5:34 But someone in the council, a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law honored by all the people, rose up and ordered the men to be put outside briefly.
5:35 Und er sprach zu ihnen:: “Men of Israel, you should be careful in your intentions about these men.
5:36 For before these days, Theudas stepped forward, asserting himself to be someone, and a number of men, about four hundred, joined with him. But he was killed, and all who believed in him were scattered, and they were reduced to nothing.
5:37 Nach dieser, Judas the Galilean stepped forward, in the days of the enrollment, and he turned the people toward himself. But he also perished, and all of them, as many as had joined with him, were dispersed.
5:38 And now therefore, Ich sage euch:, withdraw from these men and leave them alone. For if this counsel or work is of men, it will be broken.
5:39 Doch wirklich, if it is of God, you will not be able to break it, and perhaps you might be found to have fought against God.” And they agreed with him.
5:40 And calling in the Apostles, having beaten them, they warned them not to speak at all in the name of Jesus. And they dismissed them.
5:41 Und in der Tat, they went forth from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were considered worthy to suffer insult on behalf of the name of Jesus.
5:42 And every day, in the temple and among the houses, they did not cease to teach and to evangelize Christ Jesus.

Apostelgeschichte 6

6:1 Damals, as the number of disciples was increasing, there occurred a murmuring of the Greeks against the Hebrews, because their widows were treated with disdain in the daily ministration.
6:2 And so the twelve, calling together the multitude of the disciples, sagte,: “It is not fair for us to leave behind the Word of God to serve at tables also.
6:3 Deshalb, Brüder, search among yourselves for seven men of good testimony, filled with the Holy Spirit and with wisdom, whom we may appoint over this work.
6:4 Doch wirklich, we will be continually in prayer and in the ministry of the Word.”
6:5 And the plan pleased the entire multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man filled with faith and with the Holy Spirit, and Philip and Prochorus and Nicanor and Timon and Parmenas and Nicolas, a new arrival from Antioch.
6:6 These they set before the sight of the Apostles, and while praying, they imposed hands on them.
6:7 And the Word of the Lord was increasing, and the number of disciples in Jerusalem was multiplied exceedingly. And even a large group of the priests were obedient to the faith.
6:8 Dann Stephen, mit Anmut und Kraft gefüllt, schmiede große Zeichen und Wunder unter dem Volk.
6:9 Aber bestimmte diejenigen, von der Synagoge der sogenannten Libertines, und der Cyrenians, und der Alexandriner, und von denen, die von Kilikien und Asien waren stand auf und stritten mit Stephanus.
6:10 Aber sie waren nicht in der Lage, die Weisheit und den Geist zu widerstehen, mit dem er sprach,.
6:11 Then they suborned men who were to claim that they had heard him speaking words of blasphemy against Moses and against God.
6:12 And thus did they stir up the people and the elders and the scribes. And hurrying together, they seized him and brought him to the council.
6:13 And they set up false witnesses, der sagte,: “This man does not cease to speak words against the holy place and the law.
6:14 For we have heard him saying that this Jesus the Nazarene will destroy this place and will change the traditions, which Moses handed down to us.”
6:15 And all those who were sitting in the council, sah ihn, saw his face, as if it had become the face of an Angel.

Apostelgeschichte 7

7:1 Then the high priest said, “Are these things so?"
7:2 And Stephen said: “Noble brothers and fathers, Hör mal zu. The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he stayed in Haran.
7:3 And God said to him, ‘Depart from your country and from your kindred, and go into the land that I will show to you.’
7:4 Then he went away from the land of the Chaldeans, and he lived at Haran. And later, after his father was dead, God brought him into this land, in which you now dwell.
7:5 And he gave him no inheritance in it, not even the space of one step. But he promised to give it to him as a possession, and to his offspring after him, though he did not have a son.
7:6 Then God told him that his offspring would be a settler in a foreign land, and that they would subjugate them, and treat them badly, for four hundred years.
7:7 ‘And the nation whom they will serve, I will judge,’ said the Lord. ‘And after these things, they shall depart and shall serve me in this place.’
7:8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision. And so he conceived Isaac and circumcised him on the eighth day. Und Isaak, schwanger Jacob, und Jakob, the twelve Patriarchs.
7:9 And the Patriarchs, being jealous, sold Joseph into Egypt. But God was with him.
7:10 And he rescued him from all his tribulations. And he gave him grace and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. And he appointed him as governor over Egypt and over all his house.
7:11 Then a famine occurred in all of Egypt and Canaan, and a great tribulation. And our fathers did not find food.
7:12 But when Jacob had heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent our fathers first.
7:13 And on the second occasion, Joseph was recognized by his brothers, and his ancestry was made manifest to Pharaoh.
7:14 Then Joseph sent for and brought his father Jacob, with all his kindred, seventy-five souls.
7:15 And Jacob descended into Egypt, and he passed away, and so did our fathers.
7:16 And they crossed over into Shechem, and they were placed in the sepulcher which Abraham bought for a sum of money from the sons of Hamor, the son of Shechem.
7:17 And when the time of the Promise that God had revealed to Abraham drew near, the people increased and were multiplied in Egypt,
7:18 even until another king, who did not know Joseph, rose up in Egypt.
7:19 This one, encompassing our kindred, afflicted our fathers, so that they would expose their infants, lest they be kept alive.
7:20 In the same time, Moses was born. And he was in the grace of God, and he was nourished for three months in the house of his father.
7:21 Dann, having been abandoned, the daughter of Pharaoh took him in, and she raised him as her own son.
7:22 And Moses was instructed in all the wisdom of the Egyptians. And he was mighty in his words and in his deeds.
7:23 But when forty years of age were completed in him, it rose up in his heart that he should visit his brothers, die Söhne Israel.
7:24 And when he had seen a certain one suffering injury, he defended him. And striking the Egyptian, he wrought a retribution for him who was enduring the injury.
7:25 Now he supposed that his brothers would understand that God would grant them salvation through his hand. But they did not understand it.
7:26 So truly, am nächsten Tag, he appeared before those who were arguing, and he would have reconciled them in peace, Sprichwort, ‘Men, you are brothers. So why would you harm one another?'
7:27 But he who was causing the injury to his neighbor rejected him, Sprichwort: ‘Who has appointed you as leader and judge over us?
7:28 Could it be that you want to kill me, in the same way that you killed the Egyptian yesterday?'
7:29 Dann, at this word, Moses fled. And he became a foreigner in the land of Midian, where he produced two sons.
7:30 And when forty years were completed, there appeared to him, in the desert of Mount Sinai, an Angel, in a flame of fire in a bush.
7:31 And upon seeing this, Moses was amazed at the sight. And as he drew near in order to gaze at it, the voice of the Lord came to him, Sprichwort:
7:32 ‘I am the God of your fathers: the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ And Moses, being made to tremble, did not dare to look.
7:33 But the Lord said to him: ‘Loosen the shoes from your feet. For the place in which you stand is holy ground.
7:34 Sicherlich, I have seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning. Und so, I am coming down to free them. Und jetzt, go forth and I will send you into Egypt.’
7:35 This Moses, whom they rejected by saying, ‘Who has appointed you as leader and judge?’ is the one God sent to be leader and redeemer, by the hand of the Angel who appeared to him in the bush.
7:36 This man led them out, accomplishing signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, and at the Red Sea, and in the desert, for forty years.
7:37 This is Moses, who said to the sons of Israel: ‘God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your own brothers. You shall listen to him.’
7:38 This is he who was in the Church in the wilderness, with the Angel who was speaking to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers. It is he who received the words of life to give to us.
7:39 It is he whom our fathers were not willing to obey. Statt, they rejected him, and in their hearts they turned away toward Egypt,
7:40 saying to Aaron: ‘Make gods for us, which may go before us. For this Moses, who led us away from the land of Egypt, we do not know what has happened to him.’
7:41 And so they fashioned a calf in those days, and they offered sacrifices to an idol, and they rejoiced in the works of their own hands.
7:42 Then God turned, and he handed them over, to subservience to the armies of heaven, just as it was written in the Book of the Prophets: ‘Did you not offer victims and sacrifices to me for forty years in the desert, Haus Israel?
7:43 And yet you took up for yourselves the tabernacle of Moloch and the star of your god Rephan, figures which you yourselves formed in order to adore them. And so I will carry you away, beyond Babylon.’
7:44 The tabernacle of the testimony was with our fathers in the desert, just as God ordained for them, speaking to Moses, so that he would make it according to the form that he had seen.
7:45 But our fathers, receiving it, also brought it, with Joshua, into the land of the Gentiles, whom God expelled before the face of our fathers, even until the days of David,
7:46 who found grace before God and who asked that he might obtain a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.
7:47 But it was Solomon who built a house for him.
7:48 Yet the Most High does not live in houses built by hands, just as he said through the prophet:
7:49 ‘Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house would you build for me? spricht der Herr,. And which is my resting place?
7:50 Has not my hand made all these things?'
7:51 Stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you ever resist the Holy Spirit. Just as your fathers did, so also do you do.
7:52 Which of the Prophets have your fathers not persecuted? And they killed those who foretold the advent of the Just One. And you have now become the betrayers and murderers of him.
7:53 You received the law by the actions of Angels, and yet you have not kept it.”
7:54 Dann, beim Hören diese Dinge, sie waren tief in ihren Herzen verwundet, und sie knirschten mit den Zähnen an ihm.
7:55 Aber er, wird mit dem Heiligen Geist erfüllt, und starrte angestrengt in Richtung Himmel, sah die Herrlichkeit Gottes und Jesus zur Rechten Gottes stehen. Und er sagte:, "Siehe, Ich sehe den Himmel offen, und der Sohn des Menschen zur Rechten Gottes stehen. "
7:56 Dann werden sie, Weinen mit lauter Stimme, blockiert die Ohren und, einmütig, heftig auf ihn gehetzt.
7:57 Und treibt ihn aus, außerhalb der Stadt, steinigten sie ihn. Und Zeugen legten ihre Kleider neben den Füßen eines Jugend, die hieß Saul.
7:58 Und als sie steinigten Stephen, rief er aus und sagte:, "Herr Jesus, nimm meinen Geist. "
7:59 Dann, haben auf die Knie gebracht worden, er rief mit lauter Stimme:, Sprichwort, "Herr, diese Sünde nicht gegen sie zu halten. "Und als er dies gesagt hatte, er schlief im Herrn. Und Saul war damit einverstanden, dass seine Ermordung.

Apostelgeschichte 8

8:1 Now in those days, there occurred a great persecution against the Church at Jerusalem. And they were all dispersed throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the Apostles.
8:2 But God-fearing men arranged for Stephen’s funeral, and they made a great mourning over him.
8:3 Then Saul was laying waste to the Church by entering throughout the houses, and dragging away men and women, and committing them to prison.
8:4 Deshalb, those who had been dispersed were traveling around, evangelizing the Word of God.
8:5 Now Philip, descending to a city of Samaria, was preaching Christ to them.
8:6 And the crowd was listening intently and with one accord to those things which were being said by Philip, and they were watching the signs which he was accomplishing.
8:7 For many of them had unclean spirits, und, Weinen mit lauter Stimme, these departed from them.
8:8 And many of the paralytics and the lame were cured.
8:9 Deshalb, there was great gladness in that city. Now there was a certain man named Simon, who formerly had been a magician in that city, seducing the people of Samaria, claiming himself to be someone great.
8:10 And to all those who would listen, from the least even to the greatest, he was saying: “Here is the power of God, which is called great.”
8:11 And they were attentive to him because, for a long time, he had deluded them with his magic.
8:12 Doch wirklich, once they had believed Philip, who was evangelizing the kingdom of God, both men and women were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.
8:13 Then Simon himself also believed and, when he had been baptized, he adhered to Philip. Und jetzt, seeing also the greatest signs and miracles being wrought, he was amazed and stupefied.
8:14 Now when the Apostles who were in Jerusalem had heard that Samaria had received the Word of God, they sent Peter and John to them.
8:15 And when they had arrived, they prayed for them, so that they might receive the Holy Spirit.
8:16 For he had not yet come to any among them, since they were only baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
8:17 Then they laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
8:18 But when Simon had seen that, by the imposition of the hands of the Apostles, the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money,
8:19 Sprichwort, “Give this power to me also, so that on whomever I will lay my hands, he may receive the Holy Spirit.” But Peter said to him:
8:20 “Let your money be with you in perdition, for you have supposed that a gift of God might be possessed by money.
8:21 There is no part or place for you in this matter. For your heart is not upright in the sight of God.
8:22 Und so, repent from this, your wickedness, and beg God, so that perhaps this plan of your heart might be forgiven you.
8:23 For I perceive you to be in the gall of bitterness and in the bond of iniquity.”
8:24 Then Simon responded by saying, “Pray for me to the Lord, so that nothing of what you have said may happen to me.”
8:25 Und in der Tat, after testifying and speaking the Word of the Lord, sie kehrten nach Jerusalem zurück, and they evangelized the many regions of the Samaritans.
8:26 Now an Angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, Sprichwort, “Rise up and go toward the south, to the way which descends from Jerusalem into Gaza, where there is a desert.”
8:27 Und Aufstehen, Er ging. Und siehe,, an Ethiopian man, a eunuch, powerful under Candace, the queen of the Ethiopians, who was over all her treasures, had arrived in Jerusalem to worship.
8:28 And while returning, he was sitting upon his chariot and reading from the prophet Isaiah.
8:29 Then the Spirit said to Philip, “Draw near and join yourself to this chariot.”
8:30 And Philip, hurrying, heard him reading from the prophet Isaiah, und er sagte,, “Do you think that you understand what you are reading?"
8:31 Und er sagte:, “But how can I, unless someone will have revealed it to me?” And he asked Philip to climb up and sit with him.
8:32 Now the place in Scripture that he was reading was this: “Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter. And like a lamb silent before his shearer, so he opened not his mouth.
8:33 He endured his judgment with humility. Who of his generation shall describe how his life was taken away from the earth?"
8:34 Then the eunuch responded to Philip, Sprichwort: "Ich bitte Sie, about whom is the prophet saying this? About himself, or about someone else?"
8:35 Then Philip, opening his mouth and beginning from this Scripture, evangelized Jesus to him.
8:36 And while they were going along the way, they arrived at a certain water source. And the eunuch said: “There is water. What would prevent me from being baptized?"
8:37 Then Philip said, “If you believe from your whole heart, it is permitted.” And he responded by saying, “I believe the Son of God to be Jesus the Christ.”
8:38 And he ordered the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch descended into the water. And he baptized him.
8:39 And when they had ascended from the water, the Spirit of the Lord took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him anymore. Then he went on his way, Jubel.
8:40 Now Philip was found in Azotus. And continuing on, he evangelized all the cities, until he arrived in Caesarea.

Apostelgeschichte 9

9:1 Saul, atmet noch Drohungen und Schläge gegen die Jünger des Herrn, ging zu dem Hohenpriester,
9:2 und er bat ihn um Briefe an die Synagogen in Damaskus, so dass, wenn er alle Männer oder Frauen gefunden Zugehörigkeit zu dieser Way, er konnte sie als Gefangene nach Jerusalem führen.
9:3 Und er machte die Reise, geschah es, daß er Damaskus näherte. Und plötzlich, ein Licht vom Himmel umstrahlte ihn.
9:4 Und auf den Boden fallen, hörte er eine Stimme zu ihm:, "Saul, Saul, warum verfolgst du mich?"
9:5 Und er sagte:, "Wer bist du, Herr?" Und er: "Ich bin Jesus, den du verfolgst. Es ist schwer für dich, wider den Stachel zu treten. "
9:6 Und er, Zittern und Zagen, sagte,, "Herr, Was soll ich tun?"
9:7 Und der Herr sprach zu ihm:, "Steh auf und geh in die Stadt, und es wird Ihnen mitgeteilt, was Sie tun sollten. "Nun, die Männer, die ihn begleiten, standen stupefied, Hören in der Tat eine Stimme, aber da niemand.
9:8 Dann erhob sich Saul von Grund auf. Und auf die Augen zu öffnen, er sah nichts. So führt ihn an der Hand, sie brachten ihn in Damaskus.
9:9 Und an diesem Ort, er war ohne den Blick für drei Tage, und er aß nicht und trank.
9:10 Es war aber ein Jünger zu Damaskus, Namen Ananias. Und der Herr sprach zu ihm in einer Vision, "Ananias!"Und er sagte:, "Hier bin ich, Herr."
9:11 Und der Herr sprach zu ihm:: "Steh auf und gehen auf die Straße, die die gerade genannt wird, und suchen, im Haus des Judas, derjenige namens Saul von Tarsus. Denn siehe, er betet. "
9:12 (Und Paulus sah, wie ein Mann namens Hananias Betreten und imposante Hände auf ihn, damit er wieder sehend.)
9:13 Ananias aber antwortete: "Herr, Ich habe von vielen von diesem Mann gehört,, wie viel Schaden er deinen Heiligen in Jerusalem getan.
9:14 Und er hat hier Autorität von den Führern der Priester zu binden alle, die deinen Namen rufen. "
9:15 Da sprach der Herr zu ihm: "Go, für diese ist ein Instrument von mir gewählt, um meinen Namen vor Völker und Könige und die Söhne Israel vermitteln.
9:16 Denn ich werde ihm zeigen, wie viel er für meinen Namen leiden muß. "
9:17 Und Ananias ging. Und er trat in das Haus. Und legte seine Hände auf ihn, er sagte: "Bruder Saul, der Herr Jesus, er, erschien auf dem Weg zu Ihnen, mit dem Sie angekommen, schickte mir so, dass Sie Ihre Augen erhalten würde und mit dem Heiligen Geist erfüllt werden. "
9:18 Und sofort, es war wie Schuppen von den Augen gefallen war, und er erhielt seinen Augen. Und Aufstehen, er wurde getauft.
9:19 Und wenn hatte er eine Mahlzeit eingenommen, er wurde gestärkt. Jetzt war er mit den Jüngern, die für ein paar Tage zu Damaskus.
9:20 Und er wurde kontinuierlich Jesus in den Synagogen zu predigen: dass er der Sohn Gottes.
9:21 And all who heard him were astonished, und sie sagte,, “Is this not the one who, in Jerusalem, was fighting against those invoking this name, and who came here for this: so that he might lead them away to the leaders of the priests?"
9:22 But Saul was increasing to a greater extent in ability, and so he was confounding the Jews who lived at Damascus, by affirming that he is the Christ.
9:23 And when many days were completed, the Jews took counsel as one, so that they might put him to death.
9:24 But their treachery became known to Saul. Now they were also watching the gates, Tag-und Nacht, so that they might put him to death.
9:25 But the disciples, taking him away by night, sent him over the wall by letting him down in a basket.
9:26 Und als er in Jerusalem angekommen, er versuchte, sich zu den Jüngern zu verbinden. Und sie waren alle Angst vor ihm, nicht glauben, dass er ein Jünger sei.
9:27 Barnabas aber nahm ihn beiseite und führte ihn zu den Aposteln. Und er erklärte ihnen, wie er den Herrn gesehen hatte, und daß er mit ihm gesprochen, und wie, in Damaskus, er hatte getreulich in dem Namen Jesu gehandelt.
9:28 Und er war mit ihnen, Eingabe und abfliegenden Jerusalem, und handeln getreu im Namen des Herrn.
9:29 Er hat auch mit den Heiden sprach und mit den Griechen streit. Aber sie suchten ihn zu töten.
9:30 Und als die Brüder hatten dies realisiert, brachten sie ihn nach Cäsarea und schickten ihn nach Tarsus.
9:31 Sicherlich, hatte die Kirche den Frieden in ganz Judäa und Galiläa und Samaria, und es wurde gebaut, während des Gehens in der Furcht des Herrn, und es wurde mit dem Trost des Heiligen Geistes.
9:32 Dann geschah es, dass Peter, wie er reiste überall um, kam zu den Heiligen, die in Lydda wohnten.
9:33 Aber er fand es aber ein Mann, Namen Äneas, wer einen Gelähmten, die hatte acht Jahre lang im Bett gelegen.
9:34 Und sagte Petrus zu ihm: "Äneas, der Herr Jesus Christus heilt dich. Steh auf und Ihr Bett arrangieren. "Und sofort stand er auf.
9:35 Und alle, die waren in Lydda und Sharon leben Ihn, und sie wurden zum Herrn umgewandelt.
9:36 Jetzt in Joppa war aber ein Jünger namens Tabitha, die in der Übersetzung heißt Dorcas. Sie war mit den guten Werken gefüllt und Almosen zu geben, daß sie erreichen.
9:37 Und es begab sich, daß, damals, sie wurde krank und starb. Und als hätten sie ihr gewaschen, sie legte sie in einem oberen Raum.
9:38 Da nun Lydda war in der Nähe Joppa, die Jünger, auf Anhörung, dass Petrus dort war, sandten sie zwei Männer zu ihm, und bat ihn,: "Sie in den kommenden uns nicht langsam sein."
9:39 Dann Peter, aufsteigen, mit ihnen ging. Und als er angekommen war, sie führte ihn zu einem oberen Raum. Und alle Witwen wurden um ihn herum, Heulen und ihm die Tuniken und Kleider zeigen, dass Dorcas für sie gemacht hatte,.
9:40 Und wenn sie außerhalb aller worden war, geschickt, Peter, kniend, betete. Und zu dem Körper, er sagte: "Tabitha, entstehen. "Und sie öffnete ihre Augen und, beim Anblick Peter, wieder setzte sich auf.
9:41 Und bot ihr seine Hand, er hob sie hoch. Und als er in den Heiligen und die Witwen genannt, er präsentierte sie am Leben.
9:42 Nun wurde dies in ganz Joppe bekannt. Und viele glaubten an den Herrn.
9:43 And it happened that he resided for many days in Joppa, with a certain Simon, a tanner.

Apostelgeschichte 10

10:1 Now there was a certain man in Caesarea, named Cornelius, a centurion of the cohort which is called Italian,
10:2 a devout man, fearing God with all his house, giving many alms to the people, and praying to God continually.
10:3 This man saw in a vision clearly, at about the ninth hour of the day, the Angel of God entering to him and saying to him: “Cornelius!"
10:4 Und er, sah ihn, was seized by fear, und er sagte,, “What is it, Lord?“Und er sprach zu ihm: “Your prayers and your almsgiving have ascended as a memorial in the sight of God.
10:5 Und jetzt, send men to Joppa and summon a certain Simon, who is surnamed Peter.
10:6 This man is a guest with a certain Simon, a tanner, whose house is beside the sea. He will tell you what you must do.”
10:7 And when the Angel who was speaking to him had departed, he called, out of those who were subject to him, two of his household servants and a soldier who feared the Lord.
10:8 And when he had explained everything to them, he sent them to Joppa.
10:9 Dann, am nächsten Tag, while they were making the journey and approaching the city, Peter ascended to the upper rooms, damit er beten, at about the sixth hour.
10:10 And since he was hungry, he wanted to enjoy some food. Dann, 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: "Aufgehen, Peter! Kill and eat.”
10:14 But Peter said: “Far be it from me, Lord. 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, erblicken, 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, who is surnamed Peter, was a guest in that place.
10:19 Dann, as Peter was thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, "Siehe, three men seek you.
10:20 Und so, rise up, absteigen, and go with them, Zweifel an nichts. For I have sent them.”
10:21 Dann Peter, descending to the men, sagte,: "Siehe, I am the one whom you seek. What is the reason for which you have arrived?"
10:22 Und sie sagten:: “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 Deshalb, leading them in, he received them as guests. Dann, on following the day, aufsteigen, machte er sich mit ihnen. And some of the brothers from Joppa accompanied him.
10:24 And on the next day, he entered Caesarea. Und wahrlich, Cornelius was waiting for them, having called together his family and closest friends.
10:25 Und es begab sich, daß, when Peter had entered, Cornelius went to meet him. And falling before his feet, he reverenced.
10:26 Doch wirklich, Peter, lifting him up, sagte,: "Aufgehen, for I also am only a man.”
10:27 And speaking with him, Er ging hinein, and he found many who had gathered together.
10:28 Und er sprach zu ihnen:: “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. Deshalb, Ich bitte Sie, 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, und siehe,, a man stood before me in a white vestment, und er sagte,:
10:31 ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard and your almsgiving has been remembered in the sight of God.
10:32 Deshalb, send to Joppa and summon Simon, who is surnamed Peter. This man is a guest in the house of Simon, a tanner, near the sea.’
10:33 Und so, I promptly sent for you. And you have done well in coming here. Deshalb, all of us are now present in your sight to hear all the things that were taught to you by the Lord.”
10:34 Dann, Peter, Öffnen den Mund, sagte,: „Ich habe in Wahrheit Schluss gekommen, dass Gott kein Ansehen der Person ist.
10:35 Aber innerhalb jeder Nation, wer ihn fürchtet und Gerechtigkeit ist ihm akzeptabel.
10:36 Gott sandte das Wort zu den Söhnen Israel, Bekanntgabe der Frieden durch Jesus Christus, denn er ist der Herr aller.
10:37 Sie wissen, dass das Wort in ganz Judäa bekannt gemacht wurde. Für Anfang von Galiläa, nach der Taufe, die predigte John,
10:38 Jesus von Nazareth, der Gott mit dem Heiligen Geist und mit Kraft gesalbt, um gut gereist tun und alle, die vom Teufel bedrückt Heilung. Denn Gott war mit ihm.
10:39 Und wir sind Zeugen alles dessen, was er in der Region von Judäa und in Jerusalem getan, er, den sie durch Erhängen ihn an einem Baum getötet.
10:40 Gott hat ihn am dritten Tag und erlaubt ihm offenbar werden,
10:41 nicht für alle Menschen, sondern die Zeugen von Gott vorherbestimmt, für diejenigen von uns, die aßen und tranken mit ihm, nachdem er wieder von den Toten auferstanden.
10:42 Und er wies uns, das Volk zu predigen, und zu bezeugen, dass er derjenige ist, der von Gott zu sein, der Richter der Lebenden und der Toten ernannt.
10:43 Für ihn alle Propheten bieten Zeugnis, das durch seinen Namen alle, die in ihm die Vergebung der Sünden empfangen glauben.“
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.

 

Apostelgeschichte 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 Dann, when Peter had gone up to Jerusalem, those who were of the circumcision argued against him,
11:3 Sprichwort, “Why did you enter to uncircumcised men, and why did you eat with them?"
11:4 And Peter began to explain to them, in geordneter Weise, Sprichwort:
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, und die wilden Tiere, and the reptiles, and the flying things of the air.
11:7 Then I also heard a voice saying to me: 'Aufgehen, Peter. Kill and eat.’
11:8 But I said: ‘Never, Lord! 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 Und siehe,, 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, Zweifel an nichts. 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, who is surnamed 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, tatsächlich, baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’
11:17 Deshalb, 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, Sprichwort: “So has God also given to the Gentiles repentance unto life.”
11:19 Und einige von ihnen, nachdem sie von der Verfolgung verteilt, die unter Stephen stattgefunden hatte, bereiste, sogar nach Phönizien und Zypern und Antiochien, Sprechen, das Wort zu niemandem, außer für die Juden nur.
11:20 Aber einige dieser Männer aus Zypern und Kyrene, wenn waren sie in Antioch eingegeben, sprachen auch die Griechen, Ankündigung des Herrn Jesus.
11:21 Und die Hand des Herrn war mit ihnen. Und eine große Zahl geglaubt und wurden zum Herrn umgewandelt.
11:22 Nun kam die Nachricht in den Ohren der Kirche in Jerusalem, über diese Dinge, und sie sandten Barnabas soweit Antioch.
11:23 Und als er dort angekommen und hatte die Gnade Gottes, er erfreute. Und er ermahnte alle, sie mit einem entschlossenen Herz im Herrn fortzusetzen.
11:24 Denn er war ein guter Mann, und er wurde mit dem Heiligen Geist erfüllt und mit dem Glauben. Und eine große Menge wurde dem Herrn hinzugefügt.
11:25 Dann stellte Barnabas für Tarsus, damit er Saul suchen. Und wenn hatte er ihn gefunden, brachte er ihn nach Antiochia.
11:26 Und sie waren dort für ein ganzes Jahr in der Kirche im Gespräch. Und sie lehrte eine solche große Menge, dass es in Antiochia war, dass die Jünger zuerst unter dem Namen Christian bekannt waren.
11:27 Now in these days, prophets from Jerusalem went over to Antioch.
11:28 Und einer von ihnen, named Agabus, aufsteigen, 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.

Apostelgeschichte 12

12:1 Jetzt zugleich, König Herodes streckte seine Hand aus, um einige von der Kirche zu bezwingen.
12:2 Dann tötete er James, der Bruder von John, mit dem Schwert.
12:3 Und zu sehen, dass es den Juden gefiel, stellt er neben Peter aus erfassen auch. Nun war es die Tage der ungesäuerten Brote.
12:4 Also, wenn er hatte ihn festgenommen, er schickte ihn ins Gefängnis, ihn über in die Obhut von vier Gruppen zu je vier Soldaten verteilen, die Absicht, ihn zu den Menschen nach dem Passah zu produzieren.
12:5 Und so wurde Peter im Gefängnis eingesperrt. Aber Gebete wurden gemacht, ohne aufzuhören, von der Kirche, Gott in seinem Namen.
12:6 Und als Herodes war bereit, ihn zu produzieren, in der gleichen Nacht, Peter schlief zwischen zwei Soldaten, und wurde mit zwei Ketten gebunden. Und es gab Wachen vor der Tür, Bewachung des Gefängnis.
12:7 Und siehe,, ein Engel des Herrn stand in der Nähe von, und ein Licht geleuchtet, die in der Zelle. Und Klopfen Peter auf der Seite, er weckte ihn, Sprichwort, "Aufgehen, schnell.“Und die Ketten fielen aus seinen Händen.
12:8 Da sagte der Engel zu ihm: "Zieh Dich an, und auf den Stiefeln.“Und das tat er so. Und er sprach zu ihm:, „Wickeln Sie Ihr Kleidungsstück um sich und folge mir nach.“
12:9 Und Ausgehen, Er folgte ihm. Und er wußte nicht, diese Wahrheit: dass dies wurde von einem Engel gemacht. Denn er dachte, dass er eine Vision sah.
12:10 Und vorbei an dem ersten und zweiten Wächter, sie kamen an das eiserne Tor, das die Stadt führt in; und es öffnete sich für sie von selbst. und verlassen, sie weiter auf entlang einer bestimmten Seitenstraße. Und plötzlich zog der Engel von ihm.
12:11 Und Peter, Rückkehr zu sich selbst, sagte,: "Jetzt weiß ich, wirklich, dass der Herr hat seinen Engel gesandt, und dass er rettete mich aus der Hand des Herodes und von allem, was das Volk der Juden erwarten.“
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.
12:13 Dann, as he knocked at the door of the gate, a girl went out to answer, whose name was Rhoda.
12:14 And when she recognized the voice of Peter, out of joy, she did not open the gate, aber stattdessen, running in, she reported that Peter stood before the gate.
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. Und er sagte:, “Inform James and those brothers.” And going out, he went away to another place.
12:18 Dann, 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, und, 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 Dann, 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!"
12:23 Und sofort, an Angel of the Lord struck him down, because he had not given honor to God. And having been consumed by worms, he expired.
12:24 But the word of the Lord was increasing and multiplying.
12:25 Then Barnabas and Saul, having completed the ministry, returned from Jerusalem, bringing with them John, who was surnamed Mark.

Apostelgeschichte 13

13:1 Now there were, in the Church at Antioch, prophets and teachers, among whom were Barnabas, and Simon, who was called the Black, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manahen, who was the foster brother of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
13:2 Now as they were ministering for the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said to them: “Separate Saul and Barnabas for me, for the work for which I have selected them.”
13:3 Dann, fasting and praying and imposing their hands upon them, they sent them away.
13:4 And having been sent by the Holy Spirit, they went to Seleucia. And from there they sailed to Cyprus.
13:5 And when they had arrived at Salamis, they were preaching the Word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. And they also had John in the ministry.
13:6 And when they had traveled throughout the entire island, even to Paphos, they found a certain man, a magician, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Bar-Jesu.
13:7 And he was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man. Dieser Mann, summoning Barnabas and Saul, wanted to hear the Word of God.
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 Then Saul, who is also called Paul, having been filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him,
13:10 und er sagte,: “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 Und jetzt, erblicken, 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.
13:12 Then the proconsul, when he had seen what was done, believed, being in wonder over the doctrine of the Lord.
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.
13:14 Doch wirklich, sie, traveling on from Perga, arrived at Antioch in Pisidia. And upon entering the synagogue on the Sabbath day, they sat down.
13:15 Dann, after the reading from the Law and the Prophets, the leaders of the synagogue sent to them, Sprichwort: "Edler Brüder, if there is in you any word of exhortation to the people, speak.”
13:16 Then Paul, rising up and motioning for silence with his hand, sagte,: “Men of Israel and you who fear God, listen closely.
13:17 The God of the people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people, when they were settlers in the land of Egypt. And with an exalted arm, he led them away from there.
13:18 And throughout a time of forty years, he endured their behavior in the desert.
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. Und nach diesen Dingen, he gave them judges, even until the prophet Samuel.
13:21 And later on, they petitioned for a king. And God gave them Saul, the son of Kish, a man from the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years.
13:22 And having removed him, he raised up for them king David. And offering testimony about him, er sagte, ‘I have found David, the son of Jesse, to be a man according to my own heart, who will accomplish all that I will.’
13:23 From his offspring, according to the Promise, God has brought Jesus the Savior to Israel.
13:24 John was preaching, before the face of his advent, a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
13:25 Dann, when John completed his course, he was saying: ‘I am not the one you consider me to be. Denn siehe, one arrives after me, the shoes of whose feet I am not worthy to loosen.’
13:26 Edler Brüder, sons of the stock of Abraham, and those among you who fear God, it is to you the Word of this salvation has been sent.
13:27 For those who were living in Jerusalem, and its rulers, heeding neither him, nor the voices of the Prophets that are read on every Sabbath, fulfilled these by judging him.
13:28 And although they found no case for death against him, they petitioned Pilate, so that they might put him to death.
13:29 And when they had fulfilled everything that had been written about him, taking him down from the tree, they placed him in a tomb.
13:30 Doch wirklich, God raised him up from the dead on the third day.
13:31 And he was seen for many days by those who went up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who even now are his witnesses to the people.
13:32 And we are announcing to you that the Promise, which was made to our fathers,
13:33 has been fulfilled by God for our children by raising up Jesus, just as it has been written in the second Psalm also: ‘You are my Son. This day I have begotten you.’
13:34 Jetzt, 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, er sagt: ‘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 Doch wirklich, he whom God has raised from the dead has not seen corruption.
13:38 Deshalb, lassen Sie es Ihnen bekannt sein, noble brothers, 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.
13:39 In ihm, all who believe are justified.
13:40 Deshalb, be careful, lest what was said by the Prophets may overwhelm you:
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 Dann, 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 Doch wirklich, on the following Sabbath, nearly the entire city came together to hear the Word of God.
13:45 Dann werden die Juden, Sehen Sie die Menschenmassen, were filled with envy, und sie, 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, erblicken, 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, das hörte, 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 Aber sie, 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.

Apostelgeschichte 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 Doch wirklich, the Jews who were unbelieving had incited and enflamed the souls of the Gentiles against the brothers.
14:3 Und so, 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. Und sicher, 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 sie, realizing this, 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, Sprichwort, “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 Ebenfalls, 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, hatte gehört, diese, Reißen ihre Tuniken, they leapt into the crowd, herausschreien
14:14 und sagen: “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. Und am nächsten Tag, 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.

Apostelgeschichte 15

15:1 Und bestimmte diejenigen, absteigend von Judäa, lehrten die Brüder, „Es sei denn, Sie sind nach dem Brauch des Mose beschneiden, Sie können nicht gespeichert werden.“
15:2 Deshalb, als Paulus und Barnabas machte keine kleinen Aufstand gegen sie, sie entschieden, dass Paulus und Barnabas, und einige von der gegenüberliegenden Seite, sollte in dieser Frage an die Apostel und Priester in Jerusalem hinaufgehen.
15:3 Deshalb, wird von der Kirche geführt, sie reisten durch Phönizien und Samaria, beschreibt die Umwandlung der Heiden. Und sie verursachte große Freude unter allen Brüdern.
15:4 Und als hätten sie in Jerusalem angekommen, sie wurden von der Kirche und den Aposteln und den Ältesten empfangen, berichten, was Gott große Dinge mit ihnen getan hatte.
15:5 Aber einige von der Sekte der Pharisäer, Diejenigen, die Gläubigen, erhob sich sagen,, „Es ist notwendig, dass sie beschnitten werden und angewiesen zu werden, das Gesetz des Mose zu halten.“
15:6 Und die Apostel und Ältesten kamen zusammen, diese Angelegenheit zu kümmern.
15:7 And after a great contention had taken place, Peter rose up and said to them: "Edler Brüder, 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 Und nun, 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: "Edler Brüder, 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, so wie es geschrieben wurde:
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, spricht der Herr,, who does these things.’
15:18 To the Lord, his own work has been known from eternity.
15:19 Deswegen, 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, Brüder, to those who are at Antioch and Syria and Cilicia, brothers from the Gentiles, Schöne Grüße.
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 Deshalb, 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 Und so, 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 Dann, 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 Dann, 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 Doch wirklich, Paul, choosing Silas, aufbrechen, 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.

Apostelgeschichte 16

16:1 Then he arrived at Derbe and Lystra. Und siehe,, 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 Und sicher, the Churches were being strengthened in faith and were increasing in number every day.
16:6 Dann, 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 Dann, 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, und sagen: “Cross into Macedonia and help us!"
16:10 Dann, 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 Dann, am Sabbat, we were walking outside the gate, beside a river, where there seemed to be a prayer gathering. Und Hinsetzen, we were speaking with the women who had assembled.
16:14 Und eine Frau, 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, Sprichwort: “If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, enter into my house and lodge there.” And she convinced us.
16:16 Dann geschah es, dass, 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, Sprichwort: “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, in the name of Jesus Christ, 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, Sie sagten: “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 Und die Leute stürzten zusammen gegen sie. Und die Richter, Reißen ihre Tuniken, befahl ihnen mit Stäben geschlagen zu werden.
16:23 Und als hätten sie viele Geißeln auf ihnen zugefügt, sie warfen sie ins Gefängnis, die Wache anweist, sie zu beobachten fleißig.
16:24 Und da hatte er diese Art von Auftrag erhalten, er warf sie in das Innere Gefängniszelle, und er beschränkt ihre Füße mit Aktien.
16:25 Dann, mitten in der Nacht, Paulus und Silas beteten und lobten Gott. Und diejenigen, die auch in der Haft waren, wurden ihnen zuhören.
16:26 Doch wirklich, es gab einen plötzlichen Erdbeben, so groß, dass die Fundamente des Gefängnisses verschoben wurden. Und sofort wurden alle Türen geöffnet, und die Bindungen von jeder wurden freigelassen.
16:27 Dann wird die Gefängniswärter, Nachdem wir schon wach gerüttelt, und die Türen des Gefängnisses zu sehen öffnen, zog sein Schwert und wollte sich töten, der Annahme, dass die Gefangenen geflohen.
16:28 Aber Paulus rief mit lauter Stimme:, Sprichwort: "Do no harm an sich selbst, denn wir sind alle hier!"
16:29 Dann fordern ein Licht, Er ging hinein. und Zittern, er fiel vor die Füße von Paulus und Silas.
16:30 Und sie draußen bringen, er sagte, "Damen und Herren, Was muss ich tun, so dass ich gerettet werden können?"
16:31 Und sie sagte, "Glaube an den Herrn Jesus, und dann wirst du gerettet werden, mit Ihrem Haushalt. "
16:32 Und sie sprach das Wort des Herrn zu ihm, zusammen mit allen, die in seinem Hause waren.
16:33 Und er, sie in der gleichen Stunde der Nacht nehmen, wuschen ihre Geißeln. Und er ließ sich taufen, und neben seinem gesamten Haushalt.
16:34 Und als er sie in sein eigenes Haus gebracht, er stellte einen Tisch für sie. Und er war fröhlich, mit seinem ganzen Haushalt, Glauben an Gott.
16:35 Und wenn das Tageslicht gekommen war, the magistrates sent the attendants, Sprichwort, “Release those men.”
16:36 But the prison guard reported these words to Paul: “The magistrates have sent to have you released. Und nun, depart. Gehet hin in Frieden. "
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. Statt, 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, Sie hatten Angst.
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.

Apostelgeschichte 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, according to custom, 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, being jealous, 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, herausschreien: “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, beim Hören diese Dinge,
17:9 and having received an explanation from Jason and the others, released them.
17:10 Doch wirklich, the brothers promptly sent Paul and Silas away by night to Beroea. And when they had arrived, 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 Und in der Tat, many believed among them, as well as not a few among the honorable Gentile men and women.
17:13 Dann, 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, brachen sie auf.
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 Und so, he was disputing with the Jews in the synagogue, and with the worshipers, and in public places, throughout each day, 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, Sprichwort: “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, sagte,: “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. Deshalb, 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 Deshalb, 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 Und in der Tat, Gott, 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, tatsächlich, some were derisive, while others said, “We will listen to you about this again.”
17:33 So Paul departed from their midst.
17:34 Doch wirklich, certain men, adhering to him, did believe. Among these were also Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

Apostelgeschichte 18

18:1 Nach diesen Geschichten, 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. Von jetzt an, 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, ein Führer der Synagoge, believed in the Lord, mit seinem ganzen Haus. And many of the Corinthians, upon hearing, believed and were baptized.
18:9 Da sprach der Herr zu Paulus, durch eine Vision in der Nacht: "Fürchte dich nicht. Statt, sprechen und nicht schweigen.
18:10 Denn ich bin mit dir. Und niemand wird ergreifen Sie, so, wie Sie Schaden zu tun. Für viele der Menschen in dieser Stadt sind mit mir. "
18:11 Dann ließ er sich dort für ein Jahr und sechs Monate, lehren, das Wort Gottes unter ihnen.
18:12 Aber wenn Gallio war Prokonsul von Achaia, die Juden erhob sich einmütig gegen Paulus auf. Und sie brachten ihn an das Gericht,
18:13 Sprichwort, "Er bewegt die Menschen dazu Gott gegen das Gesetz zu verehren."
18:14 Dann, wenn Paul begann, seinen Mund zu öffnen, Sprach Gallion zu den Juden: "Wenn dies einige Frage der Ungerechtigkeit, oder eine böse Tat, O edle Juden, Ich möchte Sie unterstützen, wie ist die richtige.
18:15 Doch wenn wirklich das sind Fragen, über ein Wort und Namen und Ihr Recht, Sie sollten es selbst sehen. Ich werde nicht der Richter über solche Dinge sein. "
18:16 Und er befahl ihnen, aus dem Gericht.
18:17 Aber sie, Ergreifung Sosthenes, ein Führer der Synagoge, schlugen ihn vor dem Gericht. Und Gallion zeigte keine Sorge für diese Dinge.
18:18 Doch wirklich, Paul, nachdem er viele Tage geblieben war, mit Abschied von den Brüdern, segelte in Syrien, und mit ihm waren Priscilla und Aquila. Nun hatte er seinen Kopf in Cenchreae rasiert, denn er hatte ein Gelübde gemacht.
18:19 And he arrived at Ephesus, and he left them behind there. Doch wirklich, he himself, entering into the synagogue, was disputing with the Jews.
18:20 Dann, although they were asking him to remain for a longer time, he would not agree.
18:21 Statt, 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, er dargelegt, 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, in Ephesus angekommen.
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 Und so, 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 Dann, since he wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers wrote an exhortation to the disciples, so that they might accept him. Und als er angekommen war, 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.

Apostelgeschichte 19

19:1 Nun geschah es, daß, während Apollo in Korinth war, Paul, nachdem er durch die oberen Regionen gereist, in Ephesus angekommen. Und er traf sich mit einigen Schülern.
19:2 Und er sprach zu ihnen:, "Nach der Annahme, erhalten haben, ihr den Heiligen Geist?"Aber, sagte sie zu ihm:, "Wir haben nicht einmal gehört, dass es einen Heiligen Geist gibt."
19:3 Doch wirklich, er sagte, "Dann mit dem, was hast du getauft?"Und sie sagten, "Mit der Taufe des Johannes."
19:4 Dann sagte Paul: "Johannes taufte das Volk mit der Taufe der Buße, sagen, dass sie in der One glauben sollte, die nach ihm kommen wird, das ist, in Jesus. "
19:5 Auf diese Dinge zu hören, sie wurden im Namen des Herrn Jesus getauft.
19:6 Und wenn Paulus hatte auferlegt seine Hände auf sie, der Heilige Geist kam über sie. Und sie wurden in Zungen sprechen und prophezeien.
19:7 Nun waren die Männer etwa zwölf in allen.
19:8 Dann, auf die Synagoge Eingabe, er sprach treu für drei Monate, stritten und sie über das Reich Gottes zu überzeugen,.
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 Dann, even some of the traveling Jewish exorcists had attempted to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, Sprichwort, “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, and Paul I know. 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 Und so, 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 Auf diese Weise, the Word of God was increasing strongly and was being confirmed.
19:21 Dann, when these things were completed, Paul decided in the Spirit, after crossing through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, Sprichwort, “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 Now at that time, 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, er sagte: “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, Sprichwort, ‘These things are not gods which have been made by hands.’
19:27 Somit, 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, Sprichwort, “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, einmütig, into the amphitheatre.
19:30 Dann, 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, er sagte: “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 Deshalb, 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.

Apostelgeschichte 20

20:1 Dann, after the tumult ceased, Paul, calling the disciples to himself and exhorting them, said farewell. And he set out, 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 Nachdem er drei Monate damit verbracht hatte,, Verrätereien wurden von den Juden gegen ihn geplant, so wie er war im Begriff, in Syrien zu segeln. Und da wurde dies empfohlen, er zurückkehren durch Mazedonien.
20:4 diejenigen, die ihn begleitet jetzt wurden Sopater, der Sohn des Pyrrhus von Beroea; und auch die Thessalonicher, Und zweitens aristarchus; und Gajus von Derbe, und Timothy; und auch Tychikus und Trophimus aus Asien.
20:5 Diese, nachdem sie waren vorausgegangen, wartete auf uns in Troas.
20:6 Doch wirklich, segelten wir von Philippi, nach den Tagen der ungesäuerten Brote, und in fünf Tagen gingen wir zu ihnen in Troas, wo wir waren für sieben Tage.
20:7 Dann, am ersten Sabbat, Als wir aber zusammengebaut Brot zu brechen, Paul discoursed mit ihnen, die beabsichtigen, am nächsten Tag zu festgelegten. Aber er verlängert seine Predigt in die Mitte der Nacht.
20:8 Nun gab es viele Lampen im oberen Raum, wo wir versammelt.
20:9 Und es ist ein Jugendlicher namens Eutychus, sitzt auf dem Fensterbrett, durch eine schwere Schläfrigkeit belastet wurde (Paul wurde ausführlich Predigen). Dann, als er ging schlafen, er fiel aus dem dritten Stock Zimmer nach unten. Und wenn er angehoben, er war tot.
20:10 Als Paulus hatte ihm untergegangen, er legte sich über ihn und, umarmen ihn, sagte,, "Keine Sorge, denn seine Seele ist in ihm immer noch.“
20:11 Und so, steigen, und brachen das Brot, und Essen, und weiter, bis Kenntnisse haben Tageslicht, er setzte dann aus.
20:12 Nun hatten sie den Jungen in lebendig gebracht, und sie waren mehr als nur ein wenig getröstet.
20:13 Dann stiegen wir auf das Schiff und fuhren nach Assos, wo wir waren in Paul nehmen. Denn so hatte er sich entschieden,, da er machte die Reise auf dem Landweg.
20:14 Und wenn er hatte uns in Assos verbunden, wir nahmen ihn in, und wir gingen in Mitylene.
20:15 Und segelt von dort, am nächsten Tag, wir kamen gegenüber Chios. Und nächstes landeten wir auf Samos. Und am nächsten Tag gingen wir nach Milet.
20:16 Denn Paulus hatte beschlossen, an Ephesus vorbeizufahren, so dass er nicht in Asien verzögert werden würde. Denn er eilte, so dass, wenn es möglich wäre für ihn, er könnte den Pfingsttag zu Jerusalem beobachten.
20:17 Dann, Senden von Milet nach Ephesus, rief er größer sind von Geburt an in der Kirche.
20:18 Und wenn sie zu ihm gekommen und waren zusammen, Er sprach zu ihnen: "Sie wissen, dass vom ersten Tag an, als ich in Asien eingetragen, Ich bin mit dir gewesen, für die gesamte Zeit, auf diese Weise:
20:19 Dienst für den Herrn, mit aller Demut und trotz der Tränen und Prüfungen, die mir von den Tücken der Juden ereilte,
20:20 wie ich zurückgehalten nichts, was von Wert war, wie gut ich euch gepredigt, und dass ich dich öffentlich gelehrt und in den Häusern,
20:21 beiden, den Juden und Heiden über die Umkehr in Gott und den Glauben an unseren Herrn Jesus Christus zu bezeugen.
20:22 Und jetzt, erblicken, wobei im Geist verpflichtet, Ich werde nach Jerusalem, nicht zu wissen, was es mit mir geschehen,
20:23 außer, dass der Heilige Geist, überall in jeder Stadt, hat mich darauf hingewiesen,, sagen, dass Ketten und Wirrungen in Jerusalem erwarten mich.
20:24 Aber ich fürchte keines dieser Dinge. Weder halte ich mein Leben wertvoll zu sein, weil es mein eigenes ist, in irgendeiner Weise zur Verfügung gestellt, dass ich meinen eigenen Weg und dass der Dienst des Wortes vervollständigen kann, die ich erhielt vom Herrn Jesus, zu bezeugen das Evangelium von der Gnade Gottes.
20:25 Und jetzt, erblicken, Ich weiß, dass Sie nicht mehr mein Gesicht sehen, Ihnen allen unter denen ich gereist, predigte das Reich Gottes.
20:26 Aus diesem Grund, Ich rufe euch als Zeugen an diesem Tag: dass ich sauber aus dem Blut von allen.
20:27 Denn ich habe nicht im geringsten von der Ankündigung jeden Rat Gottes Sie wandte sich ab.
20:28 Achten Sie darauf, von euch und der ganzen Herde, über denen der Heilige Geist Sie als Bischöfe stationiert, die Kirche Gottes zu regieren, die er durch sein eigenes Blut erworben hat.
20:29 Ich weiß, dass nach meinem Abschied reißende Wölfe unter euch kommen wird, nicht verschonen die Herde.
20:30 Und unter euch, Männer aufstehen, die verkehrte Dinge reden, um die Jünger an sich zu locken.
20:31 Deswegen, wachsam sein, in Erinnerung behalten, dass während 3 Jahre habe ich nicht aufhören, Nacht und Tag, mit Tränen, jede und jeder von euch zu ermahnen.
20:32 Und jetzt, Ich euch Gott und dem Wort seiner Gnade. Er hat die Macht aufzubauen, und eine Erbschaft zu, alles zu geben, die geheiligt werden.
20:33 Ich habe weder begehrte Silber und Gold, noch Kleidung,
20:34 wie ihr selbst wissen. Denn das, was von mir und von denen, die mit mir brauchte sind, diese Hände haben zur Verfügung gestellt.
20:35 Ich habe alle Dinge dir offenbart, denn durch auf diese Weise arbeit, es ist notwendig, um die Schwachen zu unterstützen und die Worte des Herrn Jesus zu erinnern,, wie er sagte,, "Es ist seliger zu geben als zu empfangen."
20:36 Und als er dies gesagt hatte,, kniend, betete er mit ihnen allen.
20:37 Dann wird ein großes Weinen unter ihnen traten alle. Und, fallen auf den Hals von Paul, sie küsste ihn,
20:38 wobei vor allem über das Wort bekümmert, das er gesagt hatte,, dass sie nie wieder sein Gesicht sehen. Und sie brachten ihn auf das Schiff.

Apostelgeschichte 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 Dann, 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 Dann, 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, darlegt, 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 Doch wirklich, 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 Dann, 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 Und er, when he had come to us, took Paul’s belt, and binding his own feet and hands, er sagte: “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, Sprichwort: “May the will of the Lord be done.”
21:15 Dann, nach diesen Tagen, 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 Dann, am nächsten Tag, 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, auf sie zu hören, magnified God and said to him: “You understand, Bruder, 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 Was kommt als nächstes? The multitude ought to be convened. For they will hear that you have arrived.
21:23 Deshalb, 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 Aber, 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, herausschreien:
21:28 “Men of Israel, help! This is the man who is teaching, everyone, everywhere, against the people and the law and this place. Außerdem, 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 Dann, as they were seeking to kill him, it was reported to the tribune of the cohort: “All Jerusalem is in confusion.”
21:32 Und so, 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, Naht, 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, "Nehmen Sie ihn weg!"
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?"Und er sagte:, “You know Greek?
21:38 Also dann, 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, Sprichwort:

Apostelgeschichte 22

22:1 “Noble brothers and fathers, 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 Und er sagte:: “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, bis in den Tod, 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 Und auf den Boden fallen, I heard a voice saying to me, ‘Saul, Saul, warum verfolgst du mich?'
22:8 And I responded, ‘Who are you, Herr?’ And he said to me, ‘I am Jesus the Nazarene, whom you are persecuting.’
22:9 And those who were with me, tatsächlich, saw the light, but they did not hear the voice of him who was speaking with me.
22:10 Und ich sagte:, 'Was soll ich machen, Herr?’ Then the Lord said to me: 'Aufgehen, and go to Damascus. Und da, 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, sagte zu mir, ‘Brother Saul, sehen!’ And in that same hour, I looked upon him.
22:14 Aber er sagte,: ‘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 Und jetzt, why do you delay? Aufgehen, and be baptized, and wash away your sins, by invoking his name.’
22:17 Dann geschah es, dass, 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 Und ich sagte:: "Herr, 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 Und er sprach zu mir:, ‘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, Sprichwort: “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, Sprichwort: “What do you intend to do? For this man is a Roman citizen.”
22:27 And the tribune, Annäherung, sagte zu ihm:: "Sag mir. Are you a Roman?"So sagte er, "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 Deshalb, 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 Aber am nächsten Tag, Lust auf mehr fleißig zu entdecken, was der Grund dafür war, dass er von den Juden angeklagt, er ließ ihn los, und er ließ die Priester einzuberufen, mit dem gesamten Rat. Und, Herstellung von Paul, er stationiert ihn unter ihnen.

Apostelgeschichte 23

23:1 Then Paul, gazing intently at the council, sagte,, "Edler Brüder, 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, Wann, 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, Brüder, that he is the high priest. Denn es steht geschrieben: ‘You shall not speak evil of the leader of your people.’ ”
23:6 Jetzt Paul, wohl wissend, dass eine Gruppe waren Sadduzäer und die anderen waren Pharisäer, im Rat rief: "Edler Brüder, Ich bin ein Pharisäers, der Sohn von Pharisäern! Es ist über die Hoffnung und Auferstehung der Toten, das werde ich gerichtet werden. "
23:7 Und wenn er hatte gesagt, diese, ein Zwiespalt ereigneten sich zwischen den Pharisäern und Sadduzäern. Und wurde die Menge geteilt.
23:8 Für die Sadduzäer behaupten, dass es keine Auferstehung, und weder Engel, noch Geister. Die Pharisäer aber bekennen beides.
23:9 Dann kam ein großes Geschrei. Und einige der Pharisäer, aufsteigen, kämpften, Sprichwort: "Wir finden nichts Böses an diesem Menschen. Was ist, wenn ein Geist hat mit ihm gesprochen, oder ein Engel?"
23:10 Und da ein großer Zwiespalt gemacht worden,, die Tribüne, aus Angst, dass Paul könnte von ihnen zerrissen werden,, die Soldaten befohlen absteigen und ihn aus ihrer Mitte zu ergreifen, und ihn in die Festung zu bringen.
23:11 Dann, in der folgenden Nacht, der Herr stand neben ihm und sagte:: "Seien Sie konstant. Denn so, wie Sie über mich haben in Jerusalem gezeugt, so ist es auch notwendig, dass Sie in Rom zu bezeugen. "
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, und sie sagte,: “We have sworn ourselves by an oath, so that we will taste nothing, until we have killed Paul.
23:15 Deshalb, 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, sagte,: “Lead this young man to the tribune. For he has something to tell him.”
23:18 Und in der Tat, he took him and led him to the tribune, und er sagte,, “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, nimmt ihn bei der Hand, withdrew with him by themselves, and he asked him: “What is it that you have to tell me?"
23:20 Dann sagte er:: “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 But truly, 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 Dann, having called two centurions, Er sprach zu ihnen: “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: Schöne Grüße.
23:27 Dieser Mann, 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. Doch wirklich, 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 Und am nächsten Tag, 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, er sagte:
23:35 “I will hear you, when your accusers have arrived.” And he ordered him to be kept in the praetorium of Herod.

Apostelgeschichte 24

24:1 Dann, 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, Sprichwort: “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, Ich bitte Sie, 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, die Tribüne, 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 Dann, 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 Für, 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 Dann, 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, mit den Worten:, “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 Dann, 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, gehen, but remain under guard. Dann, 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 Dann, 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.

Apostelgeschichte 25

25:1 Und so, when Festus had arrived in the province, nach drei Tagen, he ascended to Jerusalem from Caesarea.
25:2 Und die Führer der Priester, 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 "Deshalb," er sagte, “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 Dann, 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 Und wenn hatte einige Tage vergangen, König Agrippa und Bernice abstammen Caesarea, zu begrüßen Festus.
25:14 Und da sie blieb dort für viele Tage, Festus sprach mit dem König über Paul, Sprichwort: "Ein Mann wurde als Gefangener von Felix hinterlassen.
25:15 Als ich in Jerusalem, die Führer der Priester und die Ältesten der Juden kam über ihn zu mir, fordern Verurteilung gegen ihn.
25:16 Ich antwortete ihnen, dass sie nicht die Gewohnheit der Römer, einen Menschen zu verurteilen, bevor er die Gelegenheit erhielt beschuldigt wurde von seiner Ankläger konfrontiert wird, und hat sich zu verteidigen, so wie sich der Ladungen zu löschen.
25:17 Deshalb, wenn sie hatten hier angekommen, ohne Verzögerung, am nächsten Tag, sitzen auf den Richterstuhl, Ich bestellte den Mann zu bringen.
25:18 Aber wenn die Ankläger war aufgestanden, sie haben präsentieren keine Anklage über ihn, aus dem ich würde vermuten, Übel.
25:19 Statt, sie brachten gegen ihn bestimmte Streitigkeiten über ihre Religion und über einen gewissen Jesus, wer war gestorben, aber den Paulus behauptet, am Leben zu sein.
25:20 Deshalb, wobei im Zweifel über diese Art von Frage, Ich fragte ihn, ob er bereit sei, nach Jerusalem gehen und dort über diese Dinge zu beurteilen.
25:21 Da aber Paul war ansprechend für eine Entscheidung vor Augustus gehalten werden, Ich befahl ihm gehalten werden, bis ich könnte ihn zum Kaiser sende. "
25:22 Then Agrippa said to Festus: “I myself also want to hear the man.” “Tomorrow," er sagte, “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 Wirklich, 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. Deswegen, I have brought him before you all, and especially before you, O king Agrippa, so dass, 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.”

Apostelgeschichte 26

26:1 Doch wirklich, 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. Deswegen, I beg you to listen to me patiently.
26:4 Und sicher, 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 Und jetzt, 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, O König, 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 Und sicher, 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. Und so, 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 Danach, as I was going to Damascus, with authority and permission from the high priest,
26:13 at midday, O König, 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, warum verfolgst du mich? It is hard for you to kick against the goad.’
26:15 Dann sagte ich:, ‘Who are you, Herr?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus, den du verfolgst.
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, und zu den Heiden, 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, bis zum heutigen Tag, 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, Sprichwort, “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.”

Apostelgeschichte 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 Dann, 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 und er sprach zu ihnen:: “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 Dann, 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 Dann, since we were being tossed about strongly by the tempest, am nächsten Tag, they threw the heavy items overboard.
27:19 Und am dritten Tag, with their own hands, they threw the equipment of the ship overboard.
27:20 Dann, 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, sagte,: "Sicherlich, men, you should have listened to me and not set out from Crete, so as to cause this injury and loss.
27:22 Und jetzt, 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 Sprichwort: ‘Do not be afraid, Paul! It is necessary for you to stand before Caesar. Und siehe,, God has given to you all those who are sailing with you.’
27:25 Deswegen, 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 Dann, 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 Dann, 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 Doch wirklich, 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, Sprichwort: “This is the fourteenth day that you have been waiting and continuing to fast, taking nothing.
27:34 Aus diesem 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 Und als er dies gesagt hatte,, 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 Wirklich, 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. Doch wirklich, 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. Und so, 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. Und in der Tat, 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.

Apostelgeschichte 28

28:1 And after we had escaped, we then realized that the island was called Malta. Doch wirklich, 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 Und wahrlich, when the natives saw the beast hanging from his hand, they were saying to one another: "Sicherlich, 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. Und er, 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 Und so, after three months, 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 Von dort, 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 Dort, after locating the brothers, we were asked to remain with them for seven days. And then we went on to Rome.
28:15 Und da, 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 Und wenn wir waren in Rom angekommen, Paul erhielt die Erlaubnis, von sich selbst zu bleiben, mit einem Soldaten, ihn zu bewachen.
28:17 Und nach dem dritten Tag, er rief die Führer der Juden zusammen. Und wenn sie hatte einberufen, Er sprach zu ihnen: "Edler Brüder, Ich habe nichts gegen das Volk getan, noch gegen die Sitten der Väter, doch ich wurde als Gefangener von Jerusalem in die Hände der Römer überliefert.
28:18 Und nachdem sie eine Anhörung über mich gehalten, sie hätte mich freigegeben, weil es gegen mich keinen Fall für den Tod.
28:19 Aber mit den Juden gegen mich sprechen, Ich war gezwungen zu Kaiser berufen, obwohl es nicht war, als ob ich hatte jede Art von Anklage gegen meine eigene Nation.
28:20 Und so, deswegen, Ich bitte Sie, um zu sehen und zu Ihnen zu sprechen. Denn es ist wegen der Hoffnung Israel, die ich mit dieser Kette umgeben bin.“
28:21 Aber sie sprachen zu ihm:: “We have not received letters about you from Judea, nor have any of the other new arrivals among the brothers reported or spoken anything evil against you.
28:22 But we are asking to hear your opinions from you, for concerning this sect, we know that it is being spoken against everywhere.”
28:23 And when they had appointed a day for him, very many persons went to him at his guest quarters. And he discoursed, testifying to the kingdom of God, and persuading them about Jesus, using the law of Moses and the Prophets, from morning until evening.
28:24 And some believed the things that he was saying, yet others did not believe.
28:25 And when they could not agree among themselves, they departed, while Paul was speaking this one word: “How well did the Holy Spirit speak to our fathers through the prophet Isaiah,
28:26 Sprichwort: ‘Go to this people and say to them: Hearing, you shall hear and not understand, und zu sehen,, you shall see and not perceive.
28:27 For the heart of this people has grown dull, and they have listened with reluctant ears, and they have closed their eyes tightly, lest perhaps they might see with the eyes, and hear with the ears, and understand with the heart, and so be converted, and I would heal them.’
28:28 Deshalb, lassen Sie es Ihnen bekannt sein, that this salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles, and they shall listen to it.”
28:29 Und als er dies gesagt hatte,, the Jews went away from him, though they still had many questions among themselves.
28:30 Dann blieb er für zwei Jahre in seinen eigenen gemieteten Unterkünften. Und er empfing alle, die zu ihm ging in,
28:31 predigte das Reich Gottes und lehrte von dem Herrn Jesus Christus, mit allen Treue, ohne Verbot.
