Acts 19 (WEBP)

[1] While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul, having passed through the upper country, came to Ephesus and found certain disciples.
[2] He said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” They said to him, “No, we haven’t even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”
[3] He said, “Into what then were you baptized?” They said, “Into John’s baptism.”
[4] Paul said, “John indeed baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe in the one who would come after him, that is, in Christ Jesus.”°
[5] When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
[6] When Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them and they spoke with other languages and prophesied.
[7] They were about twelve men in all.
[8] He entered into the synagogue and spoke boldly for a period of three months, reasoning and persuading about the things concerning God’s Kingdom.
[9] But when some were hardened and disobedient, speaking evil of the Way before the multitude, he departed from them and separated the disciples, reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus.
[10] This continued for two years, so that all those who lived in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.
[11] God worked special miracles by the hands of Paul,
[12] so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were carried away from his body to the sick, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out.
[13] But some of the itinerant Jews, exorcists, took on themselves to invoke over those who had the evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, “We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preaches.”
[14] There were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did this.
[15] The evil spirit answered, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but who are you?”
[16] The man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
[17] This became known to all, both Jews and Greeks, who lived at Ephesus. Fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.
[18] Many also of those who had believed came, confessing and declaring their deeds.
[19] Many of those who practiced magical arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. They counted their price, and found it to be fifty thousand pieces of silver.°
[20] So the word of the Lord was growing and becoming mighty.
[21] Now after these things had ended, Paul determined in the Spirit, when he had passed through Macedonia and Achaia, to go to Jerusalem, saying, “After I have been there, I must also see Rome.”
[22] Having sent into Macedonia two of those who served him, Timothy and Erastus, he himself stayed in Asia for a while.
[23] About that time there arose no small disturbance concerning the Way.
[24] For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith who made silver shrines of Artemis, brought no little business to the craftsmen,
[25] whom he gathered together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, “Sirs, you know that by this business we have our wealth.
[26] You see and hear that not at Ephesus alone, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul has persuaded and turned away many people, saying that they are no gods that are made with hands.
[27] Not only is there danger that this our trade come into disrepute, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be counted as nothing and her majesty destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worships.”
[28] When they heard this they were filled with anger, and cried out, saying, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!”
[29] The whole city was filled with confusion, and they rushed with one accord into the theater, having seized Gaius and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, Paul’s companions in travel.
[30] When Paul wanted to enter in to the people, the disciples didn’t allow him.
[31] Certain also of the Asiarchs, being his friends, sent to him and begged him not to venture into the theater.
[32] Some therefore cried one thing, and some another, for the assembly was in confusion. Most of them didn’t know why they had come together.
[33] They brought Alexander out of the multitude, the Jews putting him forward. Alexander beckoned with his hand, and would have made a defense to the people.
[34] But when they perceived that he was a Jew, all with one voice for a time of about two hours cried out, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!”
[35] When the town clerk had quieted the multitude, he said, “You men of Ephesus, what man is there who doesn’t know that the city of the Ephesians is temple keeper of the great goddess Artemis, and of the image which fell down from Zeus?
[36] Seeing then that these things can’t be denied, you ought to be quiet and to do nothing rash.
[37] For you have brought these men here, who are neither robbers of temples nor blasphemers of your goddess.
[38] If therefore Demetrius and the craftsmen who are with him have a matter against anyone, the courts are open and there are proconsuls. Let them press charges against one another.
[39] But if you seek anything about other matters, it will be settled in the regular assembly.
[40] For indeed we are in danger of being accused concerning today’s riot, there being no cause. Concerning it, we wouldn’t be able to give an account of this commotion.”
[41] When he had thus spoken, he dismissed the assembly.

Acts 19:4 NU omits Christ.
Acts 19:19 The 50,000 pieces of silver here probably referred to 50,000 drachmas. If so, the value of the burned books was equivalent to about 160 man-years of wages for agricultural laborers

Acts 19 (KJVS)

[1] And G1161 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), that, while Apollos G625 was G1511 (PresInf) G1722 at G1722 Corinth G2882, Paul G3972 having passed G1330 (Aor2ActPtc) through the upper G510 coasts G3313 came G2064 (Aor2ActInf) to G1519 Ephesus G2181: and G2532 finding G2147 (Aor2ActPtc) certain G5100 disciples G3101,
[2] He said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, G1487 Have ye received G2983 (Aor2ActInd) the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 since ye believed G4100 (AorActPtc)? And G1161 they said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 him G846, G235 We have G191 not so much as G3761 heard G191 (AorActInd) whether G1487 there be any G2076 (PresInd) Holy G40 Ghost G4151.
[3] And G5037 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Unto G1519 what G5101 then G3767 were ye baptized G907 (AorPasInd)? And G1161 they said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Unto G1519 John’s G2491 baptism G908.
[4] Then G1161 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) Paul G3972, John G2491 verily G3303 baptized G907 (AorActInd) with the baptism G908 of repentance G3341, saying G3004 (PresActPtc) unto the people G2992, that G2443 they should believe G4100 (AorActSubj) on G1519 him which should come G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc) after G3326 him G846, that is G5123 (PresInd), on G1519 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424.
[5] When G1161 they heard G191 (AorActPtc) [this], they were baptized G907 (AorPasInd) in G1519 the name G3686 of the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424.
[6] And G2532 when Paul G3972 had laid G2007 [his] hands G5495 upon G2007 (Aor2ActPtc) them G846, the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) on G1909 them G846; and G5037 they spake G2980 (ImpfActInd) with tongues G1100, and G2532 prophesied G4395 (ImpfActInd).
[7] And G1161 all G3956 the men G435 were G2258 (ImpfInd) about G5616 twelve G1177.
[8] And G1161 he went G1525 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 the synagogue G4864, and spake boldly G3955 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) for the space G1909 of three G5140 months G3376, disputing G1256 (PresMidPasDepPtc) and G2532 persuading G3982 (PresActPtc) the things concerning G4012 the kingdom G932 of God G2316.
[9] But G1161 when G5613 divers G5100 were hardened G4645 (ImpfPasInd), and G2532 believed not G544 (ImpfActInd), but spake evil G2551 (PresActPtc) of that way G3598 before G1799 the multitude G4128, he departed G868 (Aor2ActPtc) from G575 them G846, and separated G873 (AorActInd) the disciples G3101, disputing G1256 (PresMidPasDepPtc) daily G2596 G2250 in G1722 the school G4981 of one G5100 Tyrannus G5181.
[10] And G1161 this G5124 continued G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) by the space G1909 of two G1417 years G2094; so G5620 that all G3956 they which dwelt in G2730 (PresActPtc) Asia G773 heard G191 (AorActInf) the word G3056 of the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424, both G5037 Jews G2453 and G2532 Greeks G1672.
[11] And G5037 God G2316 wrought G4160 (ImpfActInd) special G3756 G5177 (Aor2ActPtc) miracles G1411 by G1223 the hands G5495 of Paul G3972:
[12] So G2532 G5620 that from G575 his G846 body G5559 were brought G2018 (PresPasInf) unto G1909 the sick G770 (PresActPtc) handkerchiefs G4676 or G2228 aprons G4612, and G2532 the diseases G3554 departed G525 (PresPasInf) from G575 them G846, and G5037 the evil G4190 spirits G4151 went G1831 (PresMidPasDepInf) out of G575 them G846.
[13] Then G1161 certain G5100 of G575 the vagabond G4022 (PresMidPasDepPtc) Jews G2453, exorcists G1845, took upon them G2021 (AorActInd) to call G3687 (PresActInf) over G1909 them which had G2192 (PresActPtc) evil G4190 spirits G4151 the name G3686 of the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), We adjure G3726 (PresActInd) you G5209 by Jesus G2424 whom G3739 Paul G3972 preacheth G2784 (PresActInd).
[14] And G1161 there were G2258 (ImpfInd) seven G2033 sons G5207 of [one] Sceva G4630 G5100, a Jew G2453, [and] chief of the priests G749, which did G4160 (PresActPtc) so G5124.
[15] And G1161 the evil G4190 spirit G4151 answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Jesus G2424 I know G1097 (PresActInd), and G2532 Paul G3972 I know G1987 (PresMidPasDepInd); but G1161 who G5101 are G2075 (PresInd) ye G5210?
[16] And G2532 the man G444 in G1722 whom G3739 the evil G4190 spirit G4151 was G2258 (ImpfInd) leaped G2177 (PresMidPasDepPtc) on G1909 them G846, and G2532 overcame G2634 (AorActPtc) them G846, and prevailed G2480 (AorActInd) against G2596 them G846, so G5620 that they fled G1628 (Aor2ActInf) out of G1537 that G1565 house G3624 naked G1131 and G2532 wounded G5135 (PerfPasPtc).
[17] And G1161 this G5124 was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) known G1110 to all G3956 the Jews G2453 and G5037 Greeks G1672 also G2532 dwelling G2730 (PresActPtc) at Ephesus G2181; and G2532 fear G5401 fell G1968 (Aor2ActInd) on G1909 them G846 all G3956, and G2532 the name G3686 of the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 was magnified G3170 (ImpfPasInd).
[18] And G5037 many G4183 that believed G4100 (PerfActPtc) came G2064 (ImpfMidPasDepInd), and confessed G1843 (PresMidPtc), and G2532 shewed G312 (PresActPtc) their G846 deeds G4234.
[19] Many G2425 of them also G1161 which used G4238 (AorActPtc) curious arts G4021 brought G4851 their books G976 together G4851 (Aor2ActPtc), and burned them G2618 (ImpfActInd) before G1799 all G3956 [men]: and G2532 they counted G4860 (AorActInd) the price G5092 of them G846, and G2532 found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) [it] fifty G4002 thousand G3461 [pieces] of silver G694.
[20] So G3779 mightily G2596 G2904 grew G837 (ImpfActInd) the word G3056 of God G2962 and G2532 prevailed G2480 (ImpfActInd).
[21] After G1161 G5613 these things G5023 were ended G4137 (AorPasInd), Paul G3972 purposed G5087 (Aor2MidInd) in G1722 the spirit G4151, when he had passed through G1330 (Aor2ActPtc) Macedonia G3109 and G2532 Achaia G882, to go G4198 (PresMidPasDepInf) to G1519 Jerusalem G2419, saying G2036 (Aor2ActPtc), After G3754 G3326 I G3165 have been G1096 (Aor2MidDepInf) there G1563, I G3165 must G1163 (PresInd) also G2532 see G1492 (Aor2ActInf) Rome G4516.
[22] So G1161 he sent G649 (AorActPtc) into G1519 Macedonia G3109 two G1417 of them that ministered G1247 (PresActPtc) unto him G846, Timotheus G5095 and G2532 Erastus G2037; but he himself G846 stayed G1907 (Aor2ActInd) in G1519 Asia G773 for a season G5550.
[23] And G1161 G2596 the same G1565 time G2540 there arose G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) no G3756 small G3641 stir G5017 about G4012 that way G3598.
[24] For G1063 a certain G5100 [man] named G3686 Demetrius G1216, a silversmith G695, which made G4160 (PresActPtc) silver G693 shrines G3485 for Diana G735, brought G3930 (ImpfMidInd) no G3756 small G3641 gain G2039 unto the craftsmen G5079;
[25] Whom G3739 he called together G4867 (AorActPtc) with the workmen G2040 of G4012 like occupation G5108, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Sirs G435, ye know G1987 (PresMidPasDepInd) that G3754 by G1537 this G5026 craft G2039 we have G2076 (PresInd) our G2257 wealth G2142.
[26] Moreover G2532 ye see G2334 (PresActInd) and G2532 hear G191 (PresActInd), that G3754 not G3756 alone G3440 at Ephesus G2181, but G235 almost G4975 throughout all G3956 Asia G773, this G3778 Paul G3972 hath persuaded G3982 (AorActPtc) and turned away G3179 (AorActInd) much G2425 people G3793, saying G3004 (PresActPtc) that G3754 they be G1526 (PresInd) no G3756 gods G2316, which G3588 are made G1096 (PresMidPasDepPtc) with G1223 hands G5495:
[27] So G1161 that not G3756 only G3440 this G5124 our G2254 craft G3313 is in danger G2793 (PresActInd) to be set G2064 (Aor2ActInf) at G1519 nought G557; but G235 also G2532 that the temple G2411 of the great G3173 goddess G2299 Diana G735 should be despised G1519 G3762 G3049 (AorPasInf), and G1161 G2532 her G846 magnificence G3168 should G3195 (PresActInf) be destroyed G2507 (PresPasInf), whom G3739 all G3650 Asia G773 and G2532 the world G3625 worshippeth G4576 (PresMidPasDepInd).
[28] And G1161 when they heard G191 (AorActPtc) [these sayings], they were G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) full G4134 of wrath G2372, and G2532 cried out G2896 (ImpfActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Great G3173 [is] Diana G735 of the Ephesians G2180.
[29] And G2532 the whole G3650 city G4172 was filled G4130 (AorPasInd) with confusion G4799: and G5037 having caught G4884 (AorActPtc) Gaius G1050 and G2532 Aristarchus G708, men of Macedonia G3110, Paul’s G3972 companions in travel G4898, they rushed G3729 (AorActInd) with one accord G3661 into G1519 the theatre G2302.
[30] And G1161 when G1014 Paul G3972 would G1014 (PresMidPasDepPtc) have entered G1525 (Aor2ActInf) in G1519 unto the people G1218, the disciples G3101 suffered G1439 (ImpfActInd) him G846 not G3756.
[31] And G1161 G2532 certain G5100 of the chief of Asia G775, which were G5607 (PresPtc) his G846 friends G5384, sent G3992 (AorActPtc) unto G4314 him G846, desiring G3870 (ImpfActInd) [him] that he would G1325 not G3361 adventure G1325 (Aor2ActInf) himself G1438 into G1519 the theatre G2302.
[32] Some G243 therefore G3767 G3303 cried G2896 (ImpfActInd) one thing G5100, and some another G243: for G1063 the assembly G1577 was G2258 (ImpfInd) confused G4797 (PerfPasPtc); and G2532 the more part G4119 knew G1492 (PlupfActInd) not G3756 wherefore G5101 G1752 they were come together G4905 (PlupfActInd).
[33] And G1161 they drew G4264 (AorActInd) Alexander G223 out of G1537 the multitude G3793, the Jews G2453 putting G4261 him G846 forward G4261 (AorActPtc) G4261 (PresActPtc). And G1161 Alexander G223 beckoned G2678 (AorActPtc) with the hand G5495, and would G2309 (ImpfActInd) have made his defence G626 (PresMidPasDepInf) unto the people G1218.
[34] But G1161 when they knew G1921 (Aor2ActPtc) that G3754 he was G2076 (PresInd) a Jew G2453, all G3956 G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) with G1537 one G3391 voice G5456 about G5613 the space G1909 of two G1417 hours G5610 cried out G2896 (PresActPtc), Great G3173 [is] Diana G735 of the Ephesians G2180.
[35] And G1161 when the townclerk G1122 had appeased G2687 (AorActPtc) the people G3793, he said G5346 (PresInd), [Ye] men G435 of Ephesus G2180, what G5101 G1063 man G444 is there G2076 (PresInd) that G3739 knoweth G1097 (PresActInd) not G3756 how that the city G4172 of the Ephesians G2180 is G5607 (PresPtc) a worshipper G3511 of the great G3173 goddess G2299 Diana G735, and G2532 of the [image] which fell down from Jupiter G1356?
[36] Seeing G5607 (PresPtc) then G3767 that these things G5130 cannot be spoken against G368, ye G5209 ought G1163 (PresPtc) G2076 (PresInd) to be G5225 (PresActInf) quiet G2687 (PerfPasPtc), and G2532 to do G4238 (PresActInf) nothing G3367 rashly G4312.
[37] For G1063 ye have brought hither G71 (Aor2ActInd) these G5128 men G435, which are neither G3777 robbers of churches G2417, nor yet G3777 blasphemers G987 (PresActPtc) of your G5216 goddess G2299.
[38] Wherefore G3303 G3767 if G1487 Demetrius G1216, and G2532 the craftsmen G5079 which are with G4862 him G846, have G2192 (PresActInd) a matter G3056 against G4314 any man G5100, the law G60 is open G71 (PresPasInd), and G2532 there are G1526 (PresInd) deputies G446: let them implead G1458 (PresActImpr) one another G240.
[39] But G1161 if G1487 ye enquire G1934 (PresActInd) any thing G5100 concerning G4012 other matters G2087, it shall be determined G1956 (FutPasInd) in G1722 a lawful G1772 assembly G1577.
[40] For G1063 G2532 we are in danger G2793 (PresActInd) to be called in question G1458 (PresPasInf) for G4012 this day’s G4594 uproar G4714, there being G5225 (PresActPtc) no G3367 cause G158 whereby G4012 G3739 we may G1410 (FutMidDepInd) give G591 (Aor2ActInf) an account G3056 of this G5026 concourse G4963.
[41] And G2532 when he had G2036 thus G5023 spoken G2036 (Aor2ActPtc), he dismissed G630 (AorActInd) the assembly G1577.

Young’s Literal Translation

Acts 19 (YLT)

[1] And it came to pass, in Apollos’ being in Corinth, Paul having gone through the upper parts, came to Ephesus, and having found certain disciples,
[2] he said unto them, ‘The Holy Spirit did ye receive-having believed?’ and they said unto him, ‘But we did not even hear whether there is any Holy Spirit;’
[3] and he said unto them, ‘To what, then, were ye baptized?’ and they said, ‘To John’s baptism.’
[4] And Paul said, ‘John, indeed, did baptize with a baptism of reformation, saying to the people that in him who is coming after him they should believe-that is, in the Christ-Jesus;’
[5] and they, having heard, were baptized-to the name of the Lord Jesus,
[6] and Paul having laid on them his hands, the Holy Spirit came upon them, they were speaking also with tongues, and prophesying,
[7] and all the men were, as it were, twelve.
[8] And having gone into the synagogue, he was speaking boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading the things concerning the reign of God,
[9] and when certain were hardened and were disbelieving, speaking evil of the way before the multitude, having departed from them, he did separate the disciples, every day reasoning in the school of a certain Tyrannus.
[10] And this happened for two years so that all those dwelling in Asia did hear the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks,
[11] mighty works also-not common-was God working through the hands of Paul,
[12] so that even unto the ailing were brought from his body handkerchiefs or aprons, and the sicknesses departed from them; the evil spirits also went forth from them.
[13] And certain of the wandering exorcist Jews, took upon them to name over those having the evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, ‘We adjure you by Jesus, whom Paul doth preach;’
[14] and there were certain-seven sons of Sceva, a Jew, a chief priest-who are doing this thing;
[15] and the evil spirit, answering, said, ‘Jesus I know, and Paul I am acquainted with; and ye-who are ye?’
[16] And the man, in whom was the evil spirit, leaping upon them, and having overcome them, prevailed against them, so that naked and wounded they did flee out of that house,
[17] and this became known to all, both Jews and Greeks, who are dwelling at Ephesus, and fear fell upon them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was being magnified,
[18] many also of those who did believe were coming, confessing and declaring their acts,
[19] and many of those who had practised the curious arts, having brought the books together, were burning them before all; and they reckoned together the prices of them, and found it five myriads of silverlings;
[20] so powerfully was the word of God increasing and prevailing.
[21] And when these things were fulfilled, Paul purposed in the Spirit, having gone through Macedonia and Achaia, to go on to Jerusalem, saying-‘After my being there, it behoveth me also to see Rome;’
[22] and having sent to Macedonia two of those ministering to him-Timotheus and Erastus-he himself stayed a time in Asia.
[23] And there came, at that time, not a little stir about the way,
[24] for a certain one, Demetrius by name, a worker in silver, making silver sanctuaries of Artemis, was bringing to the artificers gain not a little,
[25] whom, having brought in a crowd together, and those who did work about such things, he said, ‘Men, ye know that by this work we have our wealth;
[26] and ye see and hear, that not only at Ephesus, but almost in all Asia, this Paul, having persuaded, did turn away a great multitude, saying, that they are not gods who are made by hands;
[27] and not only is this department in danger for us of coming into disregard, but also, that of the great goddess Artemis the temple is to be reckoned for nothing, and also her greatness is about to be brought down, whom all Asia and the world doth worship.’
[28] And they having heard, and having become full of wrath, were crying out, saying, ‘Great is the Artemis of the Ephesians!’
[29] and the whole city was filled with confusion, they rushed also with one accord into the theatre, having caught Gaius and Aristarchus, Macedonians, Paul’s fellow-travellers.
[30] And on Paul’s purposing to enter in unto the populace, the disciples were not suffering him,

[41] and these things having said, he dismissed the assembly.
