“And when they heard these sayings, they were ful of wrath, & cried out, saying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians.”
King James Version (KJV)
25. Whom he called together, with the workemen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this craft we haue our wealth. 26. Moreouer, ye see & heare, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath perswaded and turned away much people, saying, that they bee no gods, which are made with hands. 27. So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought: but also that the Temple of the great goddesse Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia, and the world worshippeth. 28. And when they heard these sayings, they were ful of wrath, & cried out, saying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians. 29. And the whole citie was filled with confusion, and hauing caught Gaius and Aristarchus men of Macedonia Pauls companions in trauaile, they rushed with one accord into the Theatre. 30. And when Paul would haue entred in vnto the people, the disciples suffered him not. 31. And certaine of the chiefe of Asia, which were his friends, sent vnto him, desiring him that he would not aduenture himselfe into the Theatre.
