New International Version
19 Then they took him and brought him to a meeting of the Areopagus,(A) where they said to him, “May we know what this new teaching(B) is that you are presenting? 20 You are bringing some strange ideas to our ears, and we would like to know what they mean.” 21 (All the Athenians(C) and the foreigners who lived there spent their time doing nothing but talking about and listening to the latest ideas.)
22 Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus(D) and said: “People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious.(E) 23 For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship(F)—and this is what I am going to proclaim to you.
