Acts 16:1-5 New International Version

Timothy Accompanies Paul and Silas

16 1  Paul came to Derbe and then to Lystra, where a disciple named Timothy lived, whose mother was Jewish and a believer but whose father was a Greek. 2  The believers at Lystra and Iconium spoke well of him. 3  Paul wanted to take him along on the journey, so he circumcised him because of the Jews who lived in that area, for they all knew that his father was a Greek. 4  As they traveled from town to town, they delivered the decisions reached by the apostles and elders in Jerusalem for the people to obey. 5  So the churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.
