Дела на апостолите 6

6:1 Во тие денови, 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, рече: “It is not fair for us to leave behind the Word of God to serve at tables also.
6:3 Затоа, браќа, 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 Уште навистина, 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 тогаш Стефан, исполнет со благодат и сила, ковано големи знаци и чуда меѓу луѓето.
6:9 Но, некои од нив, од синагогата на т.н. Libertines, и на Cyrenians, и на Александријците, и на оние кои беа од Киликија и Азија стана и се расправаше со Стефан.
6:10 Но, тие не беа во можност да се спротивстави на мудроста и на Духот со кои тој зборуваше.
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, кој кажа: “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, гледајќи во него, saw his face, as if it had become the face of an Angel.
