Atos 6

1 In and the days those increasing the disciples, came a murmuring of the Hellenists to the Hebrews, because were overlooked in the service the daily the widows of them.

2 Having called and the twelve the multitude of the disciples, said: Not proper it is us having left the word of the God, to serve tables.

3 Look you out therefore, brethren, men from of you being attested seven, full of spirit and wisdom, whom we will appoint to the need this;

4 we but to the prayer and to the service of the word will constantly attend.

5 And pleased the word in presence of all of the multitude; and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and spirit holy, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolaus a proselyte of Antioch;

6 whom they placed in presence of the apostles; and having prayed they put to them the hands.

7 And the word of the God grew, and was multiplied the number of the disciples in Jerusalem greatly; great and a crowd of the priests were obedient to the faith.

8 Stephen and full of favor and of power performed prodigies and signs great among the people.

9 Stood up and some of those from the synagogue of that being called of Libertines, and of Cyrenians, and of Alexandrians, and of those from Cilicia and Asia, disputing with the Stephen;

10 and not were able to resist the wisdom and the spirit with which he spoke.

11 Then they thrust under men, saying: That we have heard him speaking words blasphemous against Moses and the God.

12 They stirred up and the people and the elders and the scribes, and having come upon they seized him, and led into the high council,

13 stood up and witnesses false, saying: The man this not ceases words speaking against the place of the holy and the law.

14 We have heard for him saying: That Jesus the Nazarene this will destroy the place this, and will change the customs, which delivered to us Moses.

15 And having gazed on him all those being seated in the high–council, saw the face of him like a face of a messenger.
