NKJVNew King James Version
1After these things Paul departed from Athens and went to Corinth. 2And he found a certain Jew named #Rom. 16:3; 1 Cor. 16:19; 2 Tim. 4:19Aquila, born in Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla (because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to depart from Rome); and he came to them. 3So, because he was of the same trade, he stayed with them #Acts 20:34; 1 Cor. 4:12; 9:14; 2 Cor. 11:7; 12:13; 1 Thess. 2:9; 4:11; 2 Thess. 3:8and worked; for by occupation they were tentmakers. 4#Acts 17:2And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded both Jews and Greeks.
5#Acts 17:14, 15When Silas and Timothy had come from Macedonia, Paul was #Acts 18:28compelled by the Spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus is the Christ. 6But #Acts 13:45when they opposed him and blasphemed, #Neh. 5:13; Matt. 10:14; Acts 13:51he shook his garments and said to them, #Lev. 20:9, 11, 12; 2 Sam. 1:16; 1 Kin. 2:33; Ezek. 18:13; 33:4, 6, 8; Matt. 27:25; Acts 20:26“Your blood be upon your own heads; #(Ezek. 3:18, 19)I am clean. #Acts 13:46–48; 28:28From now on I will go to the Gentiles.” 7And he departed from there and entered the house of a certain man named Justus, one who worshiped God, whose house was next door to the synagogue. 8#1 Cor. 1:14Then Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his household. And many of the Corinthians, hearing, believed and were baptized.
9Now #Acts 23:11the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; 10#Jer. 1:18, 19for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city.”
