“And the word of God encreased, and the number of the Disciples multiplied in Hierusalem greatly, and a great company of the Priests were obedient to the faith.”
King James Version (KJV)
4. But we will giue our selues continually to prayer, and to the ministerie of the word. 5. ¶ And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Steuen, a man full of faith and of the holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Permenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch. 6. Whom they set before the Apostles: and when they had praied, they layd their hands on them. 7. And the word of God encreased, and the number of the Disciples multiplied in Hierusalem greatly, and a great company of the Priests were obedient to the faith. 8. And Steuen full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. 9. ¶ Then there arose certaine of the Synagogue, which is called the Synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia, and of Asia, disputing with Steuen. 10. And they were not able to resist the wisedome and the spirit by which he spake.
