Acts 6


6:1 And in those days, when the number of the disciples was
 multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the
 Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily
 ministration.
6:2 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples, and
 said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God,
 and serve tables.
6:3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of
 honest report, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may
 appoint over this business.
6:4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the
 ministry of the word.
6:5 And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose
 Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and
 Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas,
 and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:
6:6 Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed,
 they laid [their] hands on them.
6:7 And the word of God increased; and the number of the
 disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company
 of the priests were obedient to the faith.
6:8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, performed great
 wonders and miracles among the people.
6:9 Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called
 [the synagogue] of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and
 Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia, and of Asia, disputing
 with Stephen.
6:10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit
 by which he spoke.
6:11 Then they suborned men, who said, We have heard him speak
 blasphemous words against Moses, and [against] God.
6:12 And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the
 scribes, and came upon [him], and caught him, and brought [him]
 to the council,
6:13 And set up false witnesses, who said, This man ceaseth not
 to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the
 law:
6:14 For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth will
 destroy this place, and will change the customs which Moses
 delivered to us.
6:15 And all that sat in the council, looking steadfastly on
 him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.
