  • 11. 11 From Troas we put out tosea and sailed straight forSamothrace, and the next daywe went on to Neapolis. 12From there we traveled toPhilippi, a Roman colony andthe leading city of that districtof Macedonia. And we stayedthere several days.
  • 12. 13 On the Sabbath we went outside thecity gate to the river, where we expectedto find a place of prayer. We sat down andbegan to speak to the women who hadgathered there. 14 One of those listeningwas a woman from the city of Thyatiranamed Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth. Shewas a worshiper of God. The Lord openedher heart to respond to Pauls message. 15When she and the members of herhousehold were baptized, she invited us toher home. "If you consider me a believer inthe Lord," she said, "come and stay at myhouse." And she persuaded us.
  • 13. 16 Once when we were going tothe place of prayer, we were met bya female slave who had a spirit bywhich she predicted the future. Sheearned a great deal of money forher owners by fortune-telling. 17She followed Paul and the rest ofus, shouting, "These men areservants of the Most High God, whoare telling you the way to besaved."
  • 14. 18 She kept this up for manydays. Finally Paul became soannoyed that he turned aroundand said to the spirit, "In thename of Jesus Christ Icommand you to come out ofher!" At that moment the spiritleft her.
  • 15. 19 When her owners realized thattheir hope of making money wasgone, they seized Paul and Silas anddragged them into the marketplace toface the authorities. 20 They broughtthem before the magistrates andsaid, "These men are Jews, and arethrowing our city into an uproar 21by advocating customs unlawful forus Romans to accept or practice."
  • 16. 22 The crowd joined in the attackagainst Paul and Silas, and themagistrates ordered them to bestripped and beaten with rods. 23 Afterthey had been severely flogged, theywere thrown into prison, and the jailerwas commanded to guard themcarefully. 24 When he received theseorders, he put them in the inner celland fastened their feet in the stocks.
