Acts 6:1-7 [ Verse 6 in Original: Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
1 Now at F142 this time while the disciples R284 were increasing R285 in number, a complaint arose on the part of the Hellenistic R286 F143 Jews against the native Hebrews, R287 because their widows R288 were being overlooked in the R289 daily serving of food. 2 So the twelve summoned the congregation F144 of the disciples and said, "It is not desirable for us to neglect the word of God in order to serve tables. 3 "Therefore, brethren, R290 select from among you seven men of good reputation, full R291 of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. 4 "But we will devote R292 ourselves to prayer and to the ministry F145 of the word." 5 The statement found approval with the whole congregation; F146 and they chose Stephen, R293 a man full R294 of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, R295 Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas and Nicolas, F147 a proselyte R296 F148 from Antioch. R297 6 And these they brought before the apostles; and after praying, R298 they laid R299 their hands on them. 7 The R300 word of God kept on spreading; and the R301 number of the disciples continued to increase greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were becoming obedient to the R302 faith.
