Bible: Acts 16:10-17
Arrival at Philippi
16:11 We put out to sea 5 from Troas 6 and sailed a straight course 7 to Samothrace, 8 the next day to Neapolis, 9 16:12 and from there to Philippi, 10 which is a leading city of that district 11 of Macedonia, 12 a Roman colony. 13 We stayed in this city for some days. 16:13 On the Sabbath day we went outside the city gate to the side of the river, where we thought there would be a place of prayer, and we sat down 14 and began to speak 15 to the women 16 who had assembled there. 17 16:14 A 18 woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth 19 from the city of Thyatira, 20 a God-fearing woman, listened to us. 21 The Lord opened her heart to respond 22 to what Paul was saying. 16:15 After she and her household were baptized, she urged us, 23 “If 24 you consider me to be a believer in the Lord, 25 come and stay in my house.” And she persuaded 26 us.
Paul and Silas Are Thrown Into Prison
16:16 Now 27 as we were going to the place of prayer, a slave girl met us who had a spirit that enabled her to foretell the future by supernatural means. 28 She 29 brought her owners 30 a great profit by fortune-telling. 31 16:17 She followed behind Paul and us and kept crying out, 32 “These men are servants 33 of the Most High God, who are proclaiming to you the way 34 of salvation.” 35
