Acts 18:5-11 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And when Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul gave busyness to the word, and witnessed to the Jews, that Jesus is Christ.

But when they gainsaid and blasphemed, he shook away his clothes [Forsooth when they against-said and blasphemed, he shook off his clothes], and said to them, Your blood be on your head; I shall be clean from henceforth, and I shall go to heathen men [I clean from henceforth, shall go to heathen men].

And he passed from thence, and entered into the house of a just man, Titus by name [by name Titus], that worshipped God, whose house was joined to the synagogue.

And Crispus, prince of the synagogue, believed to the Lord, with all his house. And many of the Corinthians heard, and believed [And many of the Corinthians hearing believed], and were christened.

And the Lord said by night to Paul by a vision, Do not thou dread, but speak, and be not still;

10 for I am with thee, and no man shall be put to thee to harm thee, for much people is to me in this city.

11 And he dwelled there a year and six months, teaching among them the word of God.

Acts 18:5-11 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

When Silas and Timothy had come from Macedonia, Paul was constrained by the Spirit to testify to the Jews that Jesus was the very Christ. And when they contradicted and reviled him, he shook out his clothing and said to them, Your blood is upon your own heads, and from henceforth I go blameless to the Gentiles. And moving on from there, he entered into the house of a certain man named Justus, a worshipper of God whose house adjoined the synagogue. However one Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his household, and many of the Corinthians listened and believed and were baptized.

Then the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision: Do not be afraid, but speak; and do not hold your peace. 10 For I am with you, and no man will attack you that will hurt you. For I have many people in this city.

11 And Paul continued there a year and six months, and taught the people the word of God.

Acts 18:5-11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

Now when Silas and Timothy were come from Macedonia, Paul, [a]forced in spirit, testified to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ.

[b]And when they resisted and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your [c]blood be upon your own head: I am clean: from henceforth will I go unto the Gentiles.

So he departed thence, and entered into a certain man’s house, named Justus, a worshipper of God, whose house joined hard to the Synagogue.

And Crispus the chief ruler of the Synagogue, believed in the Lord with all his household: and many of the Corinthians hearing it, believed and were baptized.

[d]Then said the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Fear not, but speak, and hold not thy peace.

10 For I am with thee, and no man shall lay hands on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

11 So he [e]continued there a year and six months, and taught the word of God among them.

And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ. And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.

And he departed thence, and entered into a certain man’s house, named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.
