(2) The Preaching and Its Fruits
11 And putting out to sea from 1Troas, we ran a straight course to 2Samothrace, and on the following day to 3Neapolis,
12 And from there to aPhilippi, which is the leading city of that part of Macedonia, a Roman 1colony; and we spent some days in this city.
13 And on the 1aSabbath day we went outside the gate by the briver, where we supposed there would be a place of 2prayer; and we sat down and spoke to the women who had come together.
14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple-dyed goods from the city of aThyatira who bworshipped God, was listening, whose heart the 1Lord copened to give heed to the things being spoken by Paul.
15 And when she was 1baptized, as well as her ahousehold, she entreated us, saying, If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, 2come into my 3house and abide. And she constrained us.
16 And as we were going to the place of prayer, a certain slave girl having a 1aspirit of 2Python met us, who brought her masters much profit by 3bdivining.
17 This woman followed after Paul and us and acried out, saying, These men are bslaves of the cMost High God, who announce to you a way of salvation.
18 And she did this for many days. But Paul was greatly disturbed; and turning, he said to the spirit, I charge you in the aname of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And it bcame out that very hour.
