Bible: Acts 16:10-17

16:10 After Paul 1  saw the vision, we attempted 2  immediately to go over to Macedonia, 3  concluding that God had called 4  us to proclaim the good news to them.

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
