Acts 17:1-9 English Standard Version (ESV)

Paul and Silas in Thessalonica

17 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews. And Paul went in, as was his custom, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and proving that it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus, whom I proclaim to you, is the Christ.” And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, as did a great many of the devout Greeks and not a few of the leading women. But the Jews[a] were jealous, and taking some wicked men of the rabble, they formed a mob, set the city in an uproar, and attacked the house of Jason, seeking to bring them out to the crowd. And when they could not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also, and Jason has received them, and they are all acting against the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.” And the people and the city authorities were disturbed when they heard these things. And when they had taken money as security from Jason and the rest, they let them go.

Pavel la Tesalonic

17 Pavel şi Sila au trecut prin Amfipoli şi Apolonia şi au venit în Tesalonic, unde era o sinagogă a iudeilor. Pavel, după obiceiul său, a intrat în sinagogă. Trei zile de Sabat a vorbit cu ei din Scripturi, dovedind şi lămurind că Hristosul trebuia să pătimească şi să învieze din morţi. „Şi acest Isus, pe care vi-L vestesc eu”, zicea el, „este Hristosul”. Unii din ei şi o mare mulţime de greci temători de Dumnezeu şi multe femei de frunte au crezut şi au trecut de partea lui Pavel şi a lui Sila. Dar iudeii care nu crezuseră, de pizmă, au luat cu ei nişte oameni fără căpătâi din mulţime, au făcut gloată şi au întărâtat cetatea. S-au năpustit asupra casei lui Iason şi căutau pe Pavel şi pe Sila ca să-i aducă afară, la norod. Fiindcă nu i-au găsit, au târât pe Iason şi pe vreo câţiva fraţi înaintea dregătorilor cetăţii şi strigau: „Oamenii aceştia care au răscolit lumea au venit şi aici, şi Iason i-a găzduit. Ei toţi lucrează împotriva poruncilor cezarului şi spun că este un alt Împărat: Isus.” Prin aceste vorbe, iudeii au tulburat norodul şi pe dregătorii cetăţii, care au dat drumul lui Iason şi celorlalţi numai după ce au căpătat de la ei un zălog.

Acts 17:1-9 American Standard Version (ASV)

17 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: and Paul, as his custom was, went in unto them, and for three [a]sabbath days reasoned with them from the scriptures, opening and alleging that it behooved the Christ to suffer, and to rise again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom, said he, I proclaim unto you, is the Christ. And some of them were persuaded, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few. But the Jews, being moved with jealousy, took unto them certain vile fellows of the rabble, and gathering a crowd, set the city on an uproar; and assaulting the house of Jason, they sought to bring them forth to the people. And when they found them not, they dragged Jason and certain brethren before the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned [b]the world upside down are come hither also; whom Jason hath received: and these all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus. And they troubled the multitude and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things. And when they had taken security from Jason and the rest, they let them go.
