Acts 7:54-60 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

54 And they heard these things, and were diversely tormented in their hearts, and they grinded [and gnashed, or grinded,] with teeth on him.

55 But when Stephen was full of the Holy Ghost, he beheld into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right half of the virtue of God.

56 And he said, Lo! I see heavens opened, and man's Son standing on the right half of the virtue of God. [And he said, Lo! I see heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right half of the virtue of God.]

57 And they cried with a great voice, and stopped their ears, and made with one will an assault into him.

58 And they brought him out of the city [And they casted him out of the city], and stoned [him]. And the witnesses did off their clothes, beside the feet of a young man, that was called Saul.

59 And they stoned Stephen, that called God to help, saying [And they stoned Stephen in-calling, and saying], Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.

60 And he kneeled, and cried with a great voice, and said, Lord, set not to them this sin. And when he had said this thing, he died [And when he had said this thing, he slept, or died, in the Lord].

Acts 7:54-60 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. 55 But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, looked up steadfastly with his eyes into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God. 56 And he said, Behold, I see the heavens open, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.

57 Then they gave a shout with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him all at once, 58 and cast him out of the city, and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59 And they stoned Stephen, who was calling on the Lord and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit! 60 And he kneeled down and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge! And when he had thus spoken, he fell asleep.
