Acts 17:1-15 Darby’s Translation

The Uproar in Thessalonica

17 1  And having journeyed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was the synagogue of the Jews. 2  And according to Paul's custom he went in among them, and on three sabbaths reasoned with them from the scriptures, 3  opening and laying down that the Christ must have suffered and risen up from among the dead, and that this is the Christ, Jesus whom I announce to you. 4  And some of them believed, and joined themselves to Paul and Silas, and of the Greeks who worshipped, a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few. 5  But the Jews having been stirred up to jealousy, and taken to [themselves] certain wicked men of the lowest rabble, and having got a crowd together, set the city in confusion; and having beset the house of Jason sought to bring them out to the people; 6  and not having found them, dragged Jason and certain brethren before the politarchs, crying out, These [men] that have set the world in tumult, are come here also, 7  whom Jason has received; and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying, that there is another king, Jesus. 8  And they troubled the crowd and the politarchs when they heard these things. 9  And having taken security of Jason and the rest, they let them go.

The Apostles at Beroea

10  But the brethren immediately sent away, in the night, Paul and Silas to Berea; who, being arrived, went away into the synagogue of the Jews. 11  And these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, receiving the word with all readiness of mind, daily searching the scriptures if these things were so. 12  Therefore many from among them believed, and of Grecian women of the upper classes and men not a few. 13  But when the Jews from Thessalonica knew that the word of God was announced in Berea also by Paul, they came there also, stirring up the crowds. 14  And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul to go as to the sea; but Silas and Timotheus abode there. 15  But they that conducted Paul brought him as far as Athens; and, having received a commandment to Silas and Timotheus, that they should come to him as quickly as possible, they departed.
