Acts 6

The Apostles, desirous to have the poor regarded for their bodily sustenance, as also careful themselves to dispense the Word of God, the food of the soul:

Acts 6:1 In those dayes as the numbre of the disciples grewe, ther arose a a grudge amonge the Grekes agaynste the Hebrues, because their widdowes were despysed in the dayly ministracion. Acts 6:2 Then þe twelue called the multitude of the dysciples together and saide: it is not mete that we shoulde leaue the worde of God and serue at the tables.

appoint the office of deaconship to seven chosen men.

Acts 6:3 Wherfore brethren, loke ye out amonge you seuen men of honeste reporte, and full of the holye ghoste and wysdome, whyche we maye apoint to this nedfull busines. Acts 6:4 But we wyl geue our selues continually to prayer, and to the ministracion of the word.

Of whom Stephen, a man full of faith, and of the Holy Ghost, is one.

Acts 6:5 And the saiynge pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephan a man full of faieth and of the holye ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nichanor, and Timon, and Permenas, and Nicholas a conuerte of Antioche. Acts 6:6 Whiche they set before the Apostles, and they praied and laide their handes on them. Acts 6:7 And the worde of God encreased, and the numbre of the disciples multiplyed in Hierusalem greatly, and a great companye of the priestes were obedient to the faith. Acts 6:8 And Stephane ful of fayth and power, dyd greate wounders and miracles amonge the people.

Acts 6:9 Then arose certaine of the Synagoge, whyche are called Lybertines and Syrenites, and of Alexandria, and of Cilicia, and Asia, and disputed with Stephan. Acts 6:10 And they could not resist the wysdome, and the spyryte wt whyche he spake. Acts 6:11 Then sent they in men, whiche said: we haue heard him speake blasphemous wordes against Moyses and against God.

Who is taken of those, whom he confounded in disputing,

Acts 6:12 And they moued the people and the elders and the scribes: and came vpon him and caught hym,

and after falsely accused of blasphemy against the Law and the Temple.

Acts 6:13 and brought him to the counsell and brought forth false witnesses whiche sayde. This man ceaseth not to speake blaspemous wordes against thys holy place, and the lawe, Acts 6:14 for we hearde him saie: this Iesus of Nazareth shall destroye this place, and shal chaung the ordinaunces, which Moises gaue vs. Acts 6:15 And al that sate in the counsel loked stedfastlye on hym, and saw hys face as it had bene the face of an aungel.
