Acts 19:21-41 [ Verse 30 in Original: Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
21 Now after these things were finished, Paul purposed in the Spirit F428 to go R1167 to Jerusalem after R1168 he had passed through Macedonia R1169 and Achaia, R1170 saying, "After I have been there, I R1171 must also see Rome." 22 And having sent into Macedonia R1172 two of those R1173 who ministered to him, Timothy R1174 and Erastus, R1175 he himself stayed in Asia R1176 F429 for a while. 23 About that time there occurred no small disturbance concerning the R1177 Way. 24 For a man named Demetrius, a silversmith, who made silver shrines of Artemis, F430 was R1178 bringing no little business F431 to the craftsmen; 25 these he gathered together with the workmen of similar trades, and said, "Men, you know that our prosperity depends F432 upon this business. 26 "You see and hear that not only in Ephesus, R1179 but in almost all of Asia, R1180 F433 this Paul has persuaded and turned away a considerable number of people, saying that gods R1181 F434 made with hands are no gods at all. 27 "Not only is there danger that this trade of ours fall into disrepute, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis F435 be regarded as worthless and that she whom all of Asia R1182 F436 and the R1183 world F437 worship will even be dethroned from her magnificence." 28 When they heard this and were filled with rage, they began crying out, saying, "Great is Artemis F438 of the Ephesians!" R1184 29 The city was filled with the confusion, and they rushed with F439 one accord into the theater, dragging along Gaius R1185 and Aristarchus, R1186 Paul's traveling companions R1187 from Macedonia. R1188 30 And when Paul wanted to go into the assembly, F440 the R1189 disciples would not let him. 31 Also some of the Asiarchs F441 who were friends of his sent to him and repeatedly urged him not to venture F442 into the theater. 32 So R1190 then, some were shouting one thing and some another, for the assembly F443 was in confusion and the majority did not know for F444 what reason they had come together. 33 Some of the crowd concluded F445 it was Alexander, since the Jews had put him forward; and having motioned R1191 with his hand, Alexander was intending to make a defense to the assembly. F446 34 But when they recognized that he was a Jew, a single outcry arose from them all as they shouted for about two hours, "Great is Artemis F447 of the Ephesians!" 35 After quieting the crowd, the town clerk said, "Men of Ephesus, R1192 what man is there after all who does not know that the city of the Ephesians is guardian of the temple of the great Artemis F448 and of the image which fell down from heaven? F449 36 "So, since these are undeniable facts, you ought to keep calm and to do nothing rash. 37 "For you have brought these men here who are neither robbers R1193 of temples nor blasphemers of our goddess. 38 "So then, if Demetrius and the craftsmen who are with him have a complaint against any man, the courts are in session and proconsuls R1194 F450 are available; let them bring charges against one another. 39 "But if you want anything beyond this, it shall be settled in the lawful F451 assembly. F452 40 "For indeed we are in danger of being accused of a riot in connection with today's events, since there is no real cause for it, and in this connection we will be unable to account for this disorderly gathering." 41 After saying this he dismissed the assembly.
