14 Then immediately (A)the brothers sent Paul out to go as far as the sea; and (B)Silas and (C)Timothy remained there. 15 Now (D)those who escorted Paul brought him as far as (E)Athens; and receiving a command for (F)Silas and Timothy to (G)come to him as soon as possible, they left.

Paul in Athens

16 Now while Paul was waiting for them in (H)Athens, his spirit was being provoked within him as he observed that the city was full of idols. 17 So he was reasoning (I)in the synagogue with the Jews and (J)the God-fearing Gentiles, and in the marketplace every day with those who happened to be present. 18 And some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers as well were [a]conversing with him. Some were saying, “What could (K)this [b]scavenger of tidbits want to say?” Others, “He seems to be a proclaimer of strange deities,”—because he was preaching (L)Jesus and the resurrection. 19 And they (M)took him and brought him [c]to the [d](N)Areopagus, saying, “May we know what (O)this new teaching is [e]which you are proclaiming? 20 For you are bringing some strange things to our ears; so we want to know what these things mean.” 21 (Now all the Athenians and the strangers (P)visiting there used to spend their time in nothing other than telling or hearing something new.)

Sermon on Mars Hill

22 So Paul stood in the midst of the [f]Areopagus and said, “Men of (Q)Athens, I see that you are very (R)religious in all respects. 23 For while I was passing through and examining the (S)objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ Therefore, what (T)you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you. 24 (U)The God who made the world and everything that is in it, since He is (V)Lord of heaven and earth, does not (W)dwell in temples made by hands; 25 nor is He served by human hands, (X)as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; 26 and (Y)He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having (Z)determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might feel around for Him and find Him, (AA)though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for (AB)in Him we live and move and [g]exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His descendants.’ 29 Therefore, since we are the descendants of God, we (AC)ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by human skill and thought. 30 So having (AD)overlooked (AE)the times of ignorance, God is (AF)now proclaiming to mankind that all people everywhere are to repent, 31 because He has set (AG)a day on which (AH)He will judge [h](AI)the world in righteousness [i]through a Man whom He has (AJ)appointed, having furnished proof to all people [j]by (AK)raising Him from the dead.”

32 Now when they heard of (AL)the resurrection of the dead, some began to scoff, but others said, “We shall hear from you [k]again concerning this.” 33 So Paul went out from among them. 34 But some men joined him and believed, among whom also were Dionysius the (AM)Areopagite and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.
