Act 17:17 So he was reasoning in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing Gentiles, and in the market place every day with those who happened to be present. Act 17:17 διελέγετο μὲν οὗν ἐν τῇ συναγωγῇ τοῖς ἰουδαίοις καὶ τοῖς σεβομένοις καὶ ἐν τῇ ἀγορᾷ κατὰ πᾶσαν ἡμέραν πρὸς τοὺς παρατυγχάνοντας.
Act 17:18 Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection. Act 17:18 And also some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers were conversing with him. Some were saying," What would this idle babbler wish to say?" Others," He seems to be a proclaimer of strange deities,""because he was preaching Jesus and the resurrection. Act 17:18 τινὲς δὲ καὶ τῶν ἐπικουρείων καὶ στοϊκῶν φιλοσόφων συνέβαλλον αὐτῶ, καί τινες ἔλεγον, τί ἂν θέλοι ὁ σπερμολόγος οὖτος λέγειν; οἱ δέ, ξένων δαιμονίων δοκεῖ καταγγελεὺς εἶναι· ὅτι τὸν ἰησοῦν καὶ τὴν ἀνάστασιν εὐηγγελίζετο.
Act 17:19 And they took him, and brought him unto Areopagus, saying, May we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest, is? Act 17:19 And they took him and brought him to the Areopagus, saying," May we know what this new teaching is which you are proclaiming? Act 17:19 ἐπιλαβόμενοί τε αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν ἄρειον πάγον ἤγαγον, λέγοντες, δυνάμεθα γνῶναι τίς ἡ καινὴ αὕτη ἡ ὑπὸ σοῦ λαλουμένη διδαχή;
Act 17:20 For thou bringest certain strange things to our ears: we would know therefore what these things mean. Act 17:20 For you are bringing some strange things to our ears; so we want to know what these things mean." Act 17:20 ξενίζοντα γάρ τινα εἰσφέρεις εἰς τὰς ἀκοὰς ἡμῶν· βουλόμεθα οὗν γνῶναι τίνα θέλει ταῦτα εἶναι.
Act 17:21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.) Act 17:21 ( Now all the Athenians and the strangers visiting there used to spend their time in nothing other than telling or hearing something new. ) Act 17:21 ἀθηναῖοι δὲ πάντες καὶ οἱ ἐπιδημοῦντες ξένοι εἰς οὐδὲν ἕτερον ηὐκαίρουν ἢ λέγειν τι ἢ ἀκούειν τι καινότερον.
Act 17:22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. Act 17:22 So Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said," Men of Athens, I observe that you are very religious in all respects. Act 17:22 σταθεὶς δὲ [ὁ] παῦλος ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ ἀρείου πάγου ἔφη, ἄνδρες ἀθηναῖοι, κατὰ πάντα ὡς δεισιδαιμονεστέρους ὑμᾶς θεωρῶ·
Act 17:23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. Act 17:23 For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, 'T O A N U N K N O W N G O D. 'Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you. Act 17:23 διερχόμενος γὰρ καὶ ἀναθεωρῶν τὰ σεβάσματα ὑμῶν εὖρον καὶ βωμὸν ἐν ᾧ ἐπεγέγραπτο, ἀγνώστῳ θεῶ. ὃ οὗν ἀγνοοῦντες εὐσεβεῖτε, τοῦτο ἐγὼ καταγγέλλω ὑμῖν.
Act 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Act 17:24 The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; Act 17:24 ὁ θεὸς ὁ ποιήσας τὸν κόσμον καὶ πάντα τὰ ἐν αὐτῶ, οὖτος οὐρανοῦ καὶ γῆς ὑπάρχων κύριος οὐκ ἐν χειροποιήτοις ναοῖς κατοικεῖ
Act 17:25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; Act 17:25 nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; Act 17:25 οὐδὲ ὑπὸ χειρῶν ἀνθρωπίνων θεραπεύεται προσδεόμενός τινος, αὐτὸς διδοὺς πᾶσι ζωὴν καὶ πνοὴν καὶ τὰ πάντα·
Act 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; Act 17:26 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, Act 17:26 ἐποίησέν τε ἐξ ἑνὸς πᾶν ἔθνος ἀνθρώπων κατοικεῖν ἐπὶ παντὸς προσώπου τῆς γῆς, ὁρίσας προστεταγμένους καιροὺς καὶ τὰς ὁροθεσίας τῆς κατοικίας αὐτῶν,
Act 17:27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: Act 17:27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; Act 17:27 ζητεῖν τὸν θεὸν εἰ ἄρα γε ψηλαφήσειαν αὐτὸν καὶ εὕροιεν, καί γε οὐ μακρὰν ἀπὸ ἑνὸς ἑκάστου ἡμῶν ὑπάρχοντα.
Act 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Act 17:28 for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, 'For we also are His children. ' Act 17:28 ἐν αὐτῶ γὰρ ζῶμεν καὶ κινούμεθα καὶ ἐσμέν, ὡς καί τινες τῶν καθ᾽ ὑμᾶς ποιητῶν εἰρήκασιν, τοῦ γὰρ καὶ γένος ἐσμέν.
Act 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. Act 17:29 Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man. Act 17:29 γένος οὗν ὑπάρχοντες τοῦ θεοῦ οὐκ ὀφείλομεν νομίζειν χρυσῶ ἢ ἀργύρῳ ἢ λίθῳ, χαράγματι τέχνης καὶ ἐνθυμήσεως ἀνθρώπου, τὸ θεῖον εἶναι ὅμοιον.
Act 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Act 17:30 Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, Act 17:30 τοὺς μὲν οὗν χρόνους τῆς ἀγνοίας ὑπεριδὼν ὁ θεὸς τὰ νῦν παραγγέλλει τοῖς ἀνθρώποις πάντας πανταχοῦ μετανοεῖν,
Act 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. Act 17:31 because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead." Act 17:31 καθότι ἔστησεν ἡμέραν ἐν ᾗ μέλλει κρίνειν τὴν οἰκουμένην ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ ἐν ἀνδρὶ ᾧ ὥρισεν, πίστιν παρασχὼν πᾶσιν ἀναστήσας αὐτὸν ἐκ νεκρῶν.
Act 17:32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter. Act 17:32 Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some began to sneer, but others said," We shall hear you again concerning this." Act 17:32 ἀκούσαντες δὲ ἀνάστασιν νεκρῶν οἱ μὲν ἐχλεύαζον, οἱ δὲ εἶπαν, ἀκουσόμεθά σου περὶ τούτου καὶ πάλιν.
Act 17:33 So Paul departed from among them. Act 17:33 So Paul went out of their midst. Act 17:33 οὕτως ὁ παῦλος ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ μέσου αὐτῶν.
Act 17:34 Howbeit certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them. Act 17:34 But some men joined him and believed, among whom also were Dionysius the Areopagite and a woman named Damaris and others with them. Act 17:34 τινὲς δὲ ἄνδρες κολληθέντες αὐτῶ ἐπίστευσαν, ἐν οἷς καὶ διονύσιος ὁ ἀρεοπαγίτης καὶ γυνὴ ὀνόματι δάμαρις καὶ ἕτεροι σὺν αὐτοῖς.
