Ma'aseh 7:51 - 8:4


Acts 7:51 - 8:4

51  "You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Ruah ha'Qodesh, as your fathers did, you also do.

52  "Which of the neḇi'im did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who before announced the coming of the Righteous One, of whom you now have become the betrayers and murderers,

53  who received the Torah as it was ordained by messengers, but did not watch over it." 

54  And hearing this they were cut to the hearts and gnashed the teeth at him.

55  But he, being filled with the Ruah ha'Qodesh, looked steadily into the shamayim and saw the esteem of Elohim, and יהושע standing at the right hand of Elohim,

56  and he said, "Look! I see the shamayim opened and the Bĕn of Aḏam standing at the right hand of יהוה!"

57  And crying out with a loud voice, they stopped their ears, and rushed upon him with one mind,

58  and threw him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their garments at the feet of a young man named Sha'ul.

59  And they were stoning Stephanos as he was calling and saying, "Master יהושע, receive my spirit."

60  And kneeling down he cried out with a loud voice, "Master, do not hold this sin against them." And having said this, he fell asleep.

Acts 8

1  And Sha'ul was giving approval to his death. And on that day there was a great persecution against the assembly which was at Yerushalayim, and they were all scattered throughout the countries of Yahuḏah and Shomeron, except the emissaries.

2  And dedicated men buried Stephanos, and made great lamentation over him.

3  But Sha'ul was ravaging the assembly, entering every house, and dragging off men and women, putting them in prison.

4  Then those who had been scattered went everywhere bringing the Good News: the Word!
