And in thoseG5025 days,G2250 when the number of the disciplesG3101 was multiplied,G4129 there aroseG1096 a murmuringG1112 of the GreciansG1675 againstG4314 the Hebrews,G1445 becauseG3754 their widowsG5503 were neglectedG3865 in the dailyG2522 ministration.G1248
ThenG1161 the twelveG1427 calledG4341 the multitudeG4128 of the disciplesG3101 to them, and said,G2036 It is not reasonG701 that we should leaveG2641 the wordG3056 of God,G2316 and serveG1247 tables.G5132
Why,G3767 brothers,G80 lookG1980 you out amongG1537 you sevenG2033 menG435 of honest report,G3140 fullG4134 of the HolyG40 GhostG4151 and wisdom,G4678 whomG3739 we may appointG2525 overG1909 thisG5026 business.G5532
But we will giveG4342 ourselves continuallyG4342 to prayer,G4335 and to the ministryG1248 of the word.G3056
And the sayingG3056 pleasedG700 the wholeG3956 multitude:G4128 and they choseG1586 Stephen,G4736 a manG435 fullG4134 of faithG4102 and of the HolyG40 Ghost,G4151 and Philip,G5376 and Prochorus,G4402 and Nicanor,G3527 and Timon,G5096 and Parmenas,G3937 and NicolasG3532 a proselyteG4339 of Antioch:G491
WhomG3739 they setG2476 beforeG1799 the apostles:G652 and when they had prayed,G4336 they laidG2007 their handsG5495 onG2007 them.
And the wordG3056 of GodG2316 increased;G837 and the numberG706 of the disciplesG3101 multipliedG4129 in JerusalemG2419 greatly;G4970 and a greatG4183 companyG3793 of the priestsG2409 were obedientG5219 to the faith.G4102
And Stephen,G4736 fullG4134 of faithG4102 and power,G1411 didG4160 greatG3173 wondersG5059 and miraclesG4592 amongG1722 the people.G2992
ThenG1161 there aroseG450 certainG5100 of the synagogue,G4864 whichG3588 is calledG3004 the synagogueG4864 of the Libertines,G3032 and Cyrenians,G2956 and Alexandrians,G221 and of them of CiliciaG2791 and of Asia,G773 disputingG4802 with Stephen.G4736
And they were not ableG2480 to resistG436 the wisdomG4678 and the spiritG4151 by whichG3739 he spoke.G2980
ThenG5119 they subornedG5260 men,G435 which said,G3004 We have heardG191 him speakG2980 blasphemousG989 wordsG4487 againstG1519 Moses,G3475 and against God.G2316
And they stirredG4787 up the people,G2992 and the elders,G4245 and the scribes,G1122 and cameG2186 on him, and caughtG4884 him, and broughtG71 him to the council,G4892
And setG2476 up falseG5571 witnesses,G3144 which said,G3004 ThisG5127 manG444 ceasesG3973 not to speakG2980 blasphemousG989 wordsG4487 againstG2596 thisG3778 holyG40 place,G5117 and the law:G3551
For we have heardG191 him say,G3004 that thisG5126 JesusG2424 of NazarethG3478 shall destroyG2647 thisG3778 place,G5117 and shall changeG236 the customsG1485 whichG3739 MosesG3475 deliveredG3860 us.
And allG537 that satG2516 in the council,G4892 lookingG816 steadfastlyG816 onG1519 him, sawG1492 his faceG4383 as it had been the faceG4383 of an angel.G32
