Dey say, “Wit Jesus power, da guy Paul talk bout, I tell you bad kine spirits fo let go da guy.” 14 Had one a da Jewish main priest ohana guys name Sceva dat get seven boys. Dey wen make lidat. 15 But da bad kine spirit wen tell dem, “I know who Jesus, an I know who Paul, but who you guys?” 16 Den da guy dat get da bad kine spirit wen jump um, an hold um down. Den he wen bus um all up. So den dey wen all run outside da house naked an all bleeding. 17 Da Jewish peopo an da Greek peopo dat stay inside Efesus wen hear bout dat, an dey wen all come real scared. An dey wen get plenny respeck fo da Boss Jesus. 18 Plenny peopo dat trus da Boss now, wen come fo tell everybody all da bad kine stuff dey wen do. 19 Befo time, plenny a dem guys wen make da kahuna. So dey wen come an pile up all dea kahuna books, an burn um in front everybody. Wen dey wen figga how plenny da books cost, wen cost um fifty tousand silva piece. 20 Dass how plenny peopo wen hear wat da Boss Up Dea wen say, an trus him, an wen do wat he say.

Da Big Beef Inside Efesus

21 Afta all dat wen happen, Paul wen tink fo go Jerusalem, an go thru Macedonia an Akaia. He say, “Afta I go ova dea, den I gotta go Rome too.” 22 He wen send two a his helpa guys Macedonia side, Timoty an Erastus. But he wen stay Asia side litto wile moa.

23 Dat time some guys wen make big trouble bout Jesus way. 24 Had one guy name Demetrius dat wen make stuff from silva. He make silva tings dat look jalike da temple fo da idol kine wahine god Artemis. Da guys dat work fo him wen make plenny money. 25 He tell um all fo come, an da worka guys dat wen make odda stuff fo dem. An he wen say, “Eh, you guys, you know us guys get plenny money cuz a all da stuff we make. 26 An you guys see an hear dat dis guy Paul wen make plenny peopo trus dis odda stuff, an wen turn away plenny peopo hea inside Efesus, an all ova Asia. He say da idol kine gods da peopo make no stay gods fo real. 27 Cuz a dat da peopo goin talk stink bout da stuff us guys make, an mo worse, dey goin tink da temple fo da big wahine god Artemis no good. She stay awesome, an da peopo all ova Asia an da world go down an pray to her. But dese guys, bumbye dey goin wipe her out!”

28 Wen da peopo wen hear dat, dey wen come plenny huhu, an wen start fo yell, “Artemis from Efesus, she get plenny power!” 29 Right den an dea, all da peopo inside Efesus wen come all mix up an wen make big noise. Da peopo wen grab Gaius an Aristarkus, two guys from Macedonia dat wen stay wit Paul, an dey all wen run togedda inside da stadium. 30 Paul wen like go in front da peopo, but Jesus guys neva let him. 31 Even some a da leada guys fo Asia, dey Paulʼs friends, an dey wen send him one letta dat say, “No go inside da stadium!” 32 Everybody wen stay all mix up. Some guys wen yell one ting, an odda guys one nodda ting. Plenny peopo neva know how come dey wen go ova dea. 33 Da Jewish peopo wen push one guy name Alexander in front, an some a da peopo wen yell at him wat fo do. He wen wave his arms fo tell dem fo no make noise so he can talk. 34 But wen da peopo wen figga dat he one Jewish guy, dey all yell togedda fo two hours, “Artemis from Efesus, she get plenny power!”

35 Den da town secretary fo Efesus wen make da peopo shut dea mouts, an say, “You peopo from Efesus! Everybody know dat Efesus town take care a da temple fo da importan wahine god Artemis, an her idol dat drop down from da sky, yeah? 36 Nobody can say dass not true! Dass why you guys betta shut yoa mouts an no do someting stupid. 37 You guys bring dese guys ova hea, an dey neva steal notting from da temple, an dey neva talk stink bout our wahine god. 38 So den, if Demetrius an his worka guys get anyting fo say agains somebody, dey can go in front da judge an da governas. Dey can make one squawk agains um ova dea. 39 If you get mo tings you like fo say agains dem, you gotta come togedda an do um jalike da rules say. 40 Cuz dis way, da army guys can bus us fo make big beef, cuz we no can tell um stay good we wen make lidis.” 41 Wen he wen pau say dat, den he wen tell everybody fo go home.
