Acts 1

1 I have given an earlier account, O Theophilus, of all the things which Jesus did, and of his teaching from the first,
1 Fiz o primeiro tratado, ó Teófilo, acerca de tudo que Jesus começou, não só a fazer, mas a ensinar,

2 Till the day when he was taken up to heaven after he had given his orders, through the Holy Spirit, to the Apostles of whom he had made selection:
2 até ao dia em que foi recebido em cima, depois de ter dado mandamentos, pelo Espírito Santo, aos apóstolos que escolhera;

3 And to whom he gave clear and certain signs that he was living, after his death; for he was seen by them for forty days, and gave them teaching about the kingdom of God:
3 aos quais também, depois de ter padecido, se apresentou vivo, com muitas e infalíveis provas, sendo visto por eles por espaço de quarenta dias e falando do que respeita ao Reino de Deus.

4 And when they were all together, with him, he gave them orders not to go away from Jerusalem, but to keep there, waiting till the word of the Father was put into effect, of which, he said, I have given you knowledge:
4 E, estando com eles, determinou-lhes que não se ausentassem de Jerusalém, mas que esperassem a promessa do Pai, que (disse ele) de mim ouvistes.

5 For the baptism of John was with water, but you will have baptism with the Holy Spirit, after a little time.
5 Porque, na verdade, João batizou com água, mas vós sereis batizados com o Espírito Santo, não muito depois destes dias.

6 So, when they were together, they said to him, Lord, will you at this time give back the kingdom to Israel?
6 Aqueles, pois, que se haviam reunido perguntaram-lhe, dizendo: Senhor, restaurarás tu neste tempo o reino a Israel?

7 And he said to them, It is not for you to have knowledge of the time and the order of events which the Father has kept in his control.
7 E disse-lhes: Não vos pertence saber os tempos ou as estações que o Pai estabeleceu pelo seu próprio poder.

8 But you will have power, when the Holy Spirit has come on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judaea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
8 Mas recebereis a virtude do Espírito Santo, que há de vir sobre vós; e ser-me-eis testemunhas tanto em Jerusalém como em toda a Judéia e Samaria e até aos confins da terra.

9 And when he had said these things, while they were looking, he was taken up, and went from their view into a cloud.
9 E, quando dizia isto, vendo-o eles, foi elevado às alturas, e uma nuvem o recebeu, ocultando-o a seus olhos.

10 And while they were looking up to heaven with great attention, two men came to them, in white clothing,
10 E, estando com os olhos fitos no céu, enquanto ele subia, eis que junto deles se puseram dois varões vestidos de branco,

11 And said, O men of Galilee, why are you looking up into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken from you into heaven, will come again, in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.
11 os quais lhes disseram: Varões galileus, por que estais olhando para o céu? Esse Jesus, que dentre vós foi recebido em cima no céu, há de vir assim como para o céu o vistes ir.

12 Then they went back to Jerusalem from the mountain named Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey away.
12 Então, voltaram para Jerusalém, do monte chamado das Oliveiras, o qual está perto de Jerusalém, à distância do caminho de um sábado.

13 And when they came in, they went up into the room where they were living; Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James, the son of Alphaeus, and Simon the Zealot, and Judas, the son of James.
13 E, entrando, subiram ao cenáculo, onde habitavam Pedro e Tiago, João e André, Filipe e Tomé, Bartolomeu e Mateus, Tiago, filho de Alfeu, Simão, o Zelote, e Judas, filho de Tiago.

14 And they all with one mind gave themselves up to prayer, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.
14 Todos estes perseveravam unanimemente em oração e súplicas, com as mulheres, e Maria, mãe de Jesus, e com seus irmãos.

15 And in those days Peter got up among the brothers (there were about one hundred and twenty of them), and said,
15 E, naqueles dias, levantando-se Pedro no meio dos discípulos (ora a multidão junta era de quase cento e vinte pessoas), disse:

16 My brothers, the word of God had to be put into effect, which the Holy Spirit had said before, by the mouth of David, about Judas, who was guide to those who took Jesus,
16 Varões irmãos, convinha que se cumprisse a Escritura que o Espírito Santo predisse pela boca de Davi, acerca de Judas, que foi o guia daqueles que prenderam a Jesus;

17 For he was numbered among us, and had his part in our work.
17 porque foi contado conosco e alcançou sorte neste ministério.

18 (Now this man, with the reward of his evil-doing, got for himself a field, and falling head first, came to a sudden and violent end there.
18 Ora, este adquiriu um campo com o galardão da iniqüidade e, precipitando-se, rebentou pelo meio, e todas as suas entranhas se derramaram.

19 And this came to the knowledge of all those who were living in Jerusalem, so that the field was named in their language, Akel-dama, or, The field of blood.)
19 E foi notório a todos os que habitam em Jerusalém, de maneira que na sua própria língua esse campo se chama Aceldama, isto é, Campo de Sangue.

20 For in the book of Psalms it says, Let his house be waste, and let no man be living in it: and, Let his position be taken by another.
20 Porque no Livro dos Salmos está escrito: Fique deserta a sua habitação, e não haja quem nela habite; e: Tome outro o seu bispado.

21 For this reason, of the men who have been with us all the time, while the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
21 É necessário, pois, que, dos varões que conviveram conosco todo o tempo em que o Senhor Jesus entrou e saiu dentre nós,

22 Starting from the baptism of John till he went up from us, one will have to be a witness with us of his coming back from death.
22 começando desde o batismo de João até ao dia em que dentre nós foi recebido em cima, um deles se faça conosco testemunha da sua ressurreição.

23 And they made selection of two, Joseph, named Barsabbas, whose other name was Justus, and Matthias.
23 E apresentaram dois: José, chamado Barsabás, que tinha por sobrenome o Justo, e Matias.

24 And they made prayers and said, Lord, having knowledge of the hearts of all men, make clear which of these two has been marked out by you,
24 E, orando, disseram: Tu, Senhor, conhecedor do coração de todos, mostra qual destes dois tens escolhido,

25 To take that position as a servant and Apostle, from which Judas by his sin was shut out, so that he might go to his place.
25 para que tome parte neste ministério e apostolado, de que Judas se desviou, para ir para o seu próprio lugar.

26 And they put it to the decision of chance, and the decision was given for Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven Apostles.
26 E, lançando-lhes sortes, caiu a sorte sobre Matias. E, por voto comum, foi contado com os onze apóstolos.

Acts 2

1 And when the day of Pentecost was come, they were all together in one place.
1 Cumprindo-se o dia de Pentecostes, estavam todos reunidos no mesmo lugar;

2 And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like the rushing of a violent wind, and all the house where they were was full of it.
2 e, de repente, veio do céu um som, como de um vento veemente e impetuoso, e encheu toda a casa em que estavam assentados.

3 And they saw tongues, like flames of fire, coming to rest on every one of them.
3 E foram vistas por eles línguas repartidas, como que de fogo, as quais pousaram sobre cada um deles.

4 And they were all full of the Holy Spirit, and were talking in different languages, as the Spirit gave them power.
4 E todos foram cheios do Espírito Santo e começaram a falar em outras línguas, conforme o Espírito Santo lhes concedia que falassem.

5 Now there were living at Jerusalem, Jews, God-fearing men, from every nation under heaven.
5 E em Jerusalém estavam habitando judeus, varões religiosos, de todas as nações que estão debaixo do céu.

6 And when this sound came to their ears, they all came together, and were greatly surprised because every man was hearing the words of the disciples in his special language.
6 E, correndo aquela voz, ajuntou-se uma multidão e estava confusa, porque cada um os ouvia falar na sua própria língua.

7 And they were full of wonder and said, Are not all these men Galilaeans?
7 E todos pasmavam e se maravilhavam, dizendo uns aos outros: Pois quê! Não são galileus todos esses homens que estão falando?

8 And how is it that every one of us is hearing their words in the language which was ours from our birth?
8 Como pois os ouvimos, cada um, na nossa própria língua em que somos nascidos?

9 Men of Parthia, Media, and Elam, and those living in Mesopotamia, in Judaea and Cappadocia, in Pontus and Asia,
9 Partos e medos, elamitas e os que habitam na Mesopotâmia, e Judéia, e Capadócia, e Ponto, e Ásia,

10 In Phrygia and Pamphylia, in Egypt and the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and those who have come from Rome, Jews by birth and others who have become Jews,
10 e Frígia, e Panfília, Egito e partes da Líbia, junto a Cirene, e forasteiros romanos (tanto judeus como prosélitos),

11 Men of Crete and Arabia, to all of us they are talking in our different languages, of the great works of God.
11 e cretenses, e árabes, todos os temos ouvido em nossas próprias línguas falar das grandezas de Deus.

12 And they were all surprised and in doubt saying to one another, What is the reason of this?
12 E todos se maravilhavam e estavam suspensos, dizendo uns para os outros: Que quer isto dizer?

13 But others, making sport of them, said, They are full of new wine.
13 E outros, zombando, diziam: Estão cheios de mosto.

14 But Peter, getting up, with the eleven, said in a loud voice, O men of Judaea, and all you who are living in Jerusalem, take note of this and give ear to my words.
14 Pedro, porém, pondo-se em pé com os onze, levantou a voz e disse-lhes: Varões judeus e todos os que habitais em Jerusalém, seja-vos isto notório, e escutai as minhas palavras.

15 For these men are not overcome with wine, as it seems to you, for it is only the third hour of the day;
15 Estes homens não estão embriagados, como vós pensais, sendo esta a terceira hora do dia.

16 But this is the thing which was said by the prophet Joel;
16 Mas isto é o que foi dito pelo profeta Joel:

17 And it will come about, in the last days, says God, that I will send out my Spirit on all flesh; and your sons and your daughters will be prophets, and your young men will see visions, and your old men will have dreams:
17 E nos últimos dias acontecerá, diz Deus, que do meu Espírito derramarei sobre toda a carne; e os vossos filhos e as vossas filhas profetizarão, os vossos jovens terão visões, e os vossos velhos sonharão sonhos;

18 And on my men-servants and my women-servants I will send my Spirit, and they will be prophets.
18 e também do meu Espírito derramarei sobre os meus servos e minhas servas, naqueles dias, e profetizarão;

19 And wonders will be seen in heaven, and signs on the earth, blood and fire and smoke:
19 e farei aparecer prodígios em cima no céu e sinais em baixo na terra: sangue, fogo e vapor de fumaça.

20 The sun will become dark and the moon will be turned to blood, before that great day of the Lord comes in glory:
20 O sol se converterá em trevas, e a lua, em sangue, antes de chegar o grande e glorioso Dia do Senhor;

21 And whoever makes his prayer to the Lord will have salvation.
21 e acontecerá que todo aquele que invocar o nome do Senhor será salvo.

22 Men of Israel, give ear to these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man who had the approval of God, as was made clear to you by the great works and signs and wonders which God did by him among you, as you yourselves have knowledge,
22 Varões israelitas, escutai estas palavras: A Jesus Nazareno, varão aprovado por Deus entre vós com maravilhas, prodígios e sinais, que Deus por ele fez no meio de vós, como vós mesmos bem sabeis;

23 Him, when he was given up, by the decision and knowledge of God, you put to death on the cross, by the hands of evil men:
23 a este que vos foi entregue pelo determinado conselho e presciência de Deus, tomando-o vós, o crucificastes e matastes pelas mãos de injustos;

24 But God gave him back to life, having made him free from the pains of death because it was not possible for him to be overcome by it.
24 ao qual Deus ressuscitou, soltas as ânsias da morte, pois não era possível que fosse retido por ela.

25 For David said of him, I saw the Lord before my face at all times, for he is at my right hand, so that I may not be moved:
25 Porque dele disse Davi: Sempre via diante de mim o Senhor, porque está à minha direita, para que eu não seja comovido;

26 And for this cause my heart was glad and my tongue full of joy, and my flesh will be resting in hope:
26 por isso, se alegrou o meu coração, e a minha língua exultou; e ainda a minha carne há de repousar em esperança.

27 For you will not let my soul be in hell and you will not give up your Holy One to destruction.
27 Pois não deixarás a minha alma no Hades, nem permitirás que o teu Santo veja a corrupção.

28 You have made me see the ways of life; I will be full of joy when I see your face.
28 Fizeste-me conhecidos os caminhos da vida; com a tua face me encherás de júbilo.

29 My brothers, I may say to you openly that David came to his death, and was put in the earth, and his resting-place is with us today.
29 Varões irmãos, seja-me lícito dizer-vos livremente acerca do patriarca Davi que ele morreu e foi sepultado, e entre nós está até hoje a sua sepultura.

30 But being a prophet, and having in mind the oath which God had given to him, that of the fruit of his body one would take his place as a king,
30 Sendo, pois, ele profeta e sabendo que Deus lhe havia prometido com juramento que do fruto de seus lombos, segundo a carne, levantaria o Cristo, para o assentar sobre o seu trono,

31 He, having knowledge of the future, was talking of the coming again of Christ from the dead, that he was not kept in hell and his body did not see destruction.
31 nesta previsão, disse da ressurreição de Cristo, que a sua alma não foi deixada no Hades, nem a sua carne viu a corrupção.

32 This Jesus God has given back to life, of which we all are witnesses.
32 Deus ressuscitou a este Jesus, do que todos nós somos testemunhas.

33 And so, being lifted up to the right hand of God, and having the Father’s word that the Holy Spirit would come, he has sent this thing, which now you see and have knowledge of.
33 De sorte que, exaltado pela destra de Deus e tendo recebido do Pai a promessa do Espírito Santo, derramou isto que vós agora vedes e ouvis.

34 For David has not gone up into heaven, but says, himself, The Lord said to my Lord, Be seated at my right hand,
34 Porque Davi não subiu aos céus, mas ele próprio diz: Disse o Senhor ao meu Senhor: Assenta-te à minha direita,

35 Till I put all those who are against you under your feet.
35 até que ponha os teus inimigos por escabelo de teus pés.

36 For this reason, let all Israel be certain that this Jesus, whom you put to death on the cross, God has made Lord and Christ.
36 Saiba, pois, com certeza, toda a casa de Israel que a esse Jesus, a quem vós crucificastes, Deus o fez Senhor e Cristo.

37 Now when these words came to their ears their hearts were troubled, and they said to Peter and the other Apostles, Brothers, what are we to do?
37 Ouvindo eles isto, compungiram-se em seu coração e perguntaram a Pedro e aos demais apóstolos: Que faremos, varões irmãos?

38 And Peter said, Let your hearts be changed, every one of you, and have baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will have the Holy Spirit given to you.
38 E disse-lhes Pedro: Arrependei-vos, e cada um de vós seja batizado em nome de Jesus Cristo para perdão dos pecados, e recebereis o dom do Espírito Santo.

39 For the word of God is for you and for your children and for all those who are far off, even all those who may be marked out by the Lord our God.
39 Porque a promessa vos diz respeito a vós, a vossos filhos e a todos os que estão longe: a tantos quantos Deus, nosso Senhor, chamar.

40 And with more such words he gave his witness, offering them salvation and saying, Come out from this evil generation.
40 E com muitas outras palavras isto testificava e os exortava, dizendo: Salvai-vos desta geração perversa.

41 Then those who gave hearing to his words had baptism: and about three thousand souls were joined to them that day.
41 De sorte que foram batizados os que de bom grado receberam a sua palavra; e, naquele dia, agregaram-se quase três mil almas.

42 And they kept their attention fixed on the Apostles’ teaching and were united together in the taking of broken bread and in prayer.
42 E perseveravam na doutrina dos apóstolos, e na comunhão, e no partir do pão, e nas orações.

43 But fear came on every soul: and all sorts of wonders and signs were done by the Apostles.
43 Em cada alma havia temor, e muitas maravilhas e sinais se faziam pelos apóstolos.

44 And all those who were of the faith kept together, and had all things in common;
44 Todos os que criam estavam juntos e tinham tudo em comum.

45 And exchanging their goods and property for money, they made division of it among them all, as they had need.
45 Vendiam suas propriedades e fazendas e repartiam com todos, segundo cada um tinha necessidade.

46 And day by day, going in agreement together regularly to the Temple and, taking broken bread together in their houses, they took their food with joy and with true hearts,
46 E, perseverando unânimes todos os dias no templo e partindo o pão em casa, comiam juntos com alegria e singeleza de coração,

47 Giving praise to God, and having the approval of all the people; and every day the number of those who had salvation was increased by the Lord.
47 louvando a Deus e caindo na graça de todo o povo. E todos os dias acrescentava o Senhor à igreja aqueles que se haviam de salvar.

Acts 3

1 Now Peter and John were going up to the Temple at the ninth hour, the hour of prayer;
1 Pedro e João subiam juntos ao templo à hora da oração, a nona.

2 And a certain man who from birth had had no power in his legs, was taken there every day, and put down at the door of the Temple which is named Beautiful, requesting money from those who went into the Temple;
2 E era trazido um varão que desde o ventre de sua mãe era coxo, o qual todos os dias punham à porta do templo chamada Formosa, para pedir esmola aos que entravam.

3 He then, seeing Peter and John going into the Temple, made a request to them.
3 Ele, vendo a Pedro e a João, que iam entrando no templo, pediu que lhe dessem uma esmola.

4 And Peter, looking at him, with John, said, Keep your eyes on us.
4 E Pedro, com João, fitando os olhos nele, disse: Olha para nós.

5 And he gave attention to them, hoping to get something from them.
5 E olhou para eles, esperando receber alguma coisa.

6 But Peter said, I have no silver or gold, but what I have, that I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up on your feet.
6 E disse Pedro: Não tenho prata nem ouro, mas o que tenho, isso te dou. Em nome de Jesus Cristo, o Nazareno, levanta-te e anda.

7 And he took him by his right hand, lifting him up; and straight away his feet and the bones of his legs became strong,
7 E, tomando-o pela mão direita, o levantou, e logo os seus pés e tornozelos se firmaram.

8 And, jumping up, he got on to his feet and went into the Temple with them, walking and jumping and giving praise to God.
8 E, saltando ele, pôs-se em pé, e andou, e entrou com eles no templo, andando, e saltando, e louvando a Deus.

9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God:
9 E todo o povo o viu andar e louvar a Deus;

10 And they saw that it was the man who made requests for money at the door of the Temple, and they were full of wonder and surprise at what had taken place.
10 e conheciam-no, pois era ele o que se assentava a pedir esmola à Porta Formosa do templo; e ficaram cheios de pasmo e assombro pelo que lhe acontecera.

11 And while he kept his hands on Peter and John, all the people came running together to the covered way which is named Solomon’s, full of wonder.
11 E, apegando-se ele a Pedro e João, todo o povo correu atônito para junto deles no alpendre chamado de Salomão.

12 And when Peter saw it he said to the people, You men of Israel, why are you so greatly surprised at this man? or why are you looking at us as if by our power or virtue we had given him the use of his legs?
12 E, quando Pedro viu isto, disse ao povo: Varões israelitas, por que vos maravilhais disto? Ou, por que olhais tanto para nós, como se por nossa própria virtude ou santidade fizéssemos andar este homem?

13 The God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has given glory to his servant Jesus; whom you gave up, turning your backs on him, when Pilate had made the decision to let him go free.
13 O Deus de Abraão, e de Isaque, e de Jacó, o Deus de nossos pais, glorificou a seu Filho Jesus, a quem vós entregastes e perante a face de Pilatos negastes, tendo ele determinado que fosse solto.

14 But you would have nothing to do with the Holy and Upright One, and made request for a man of blood to be given to you,
14 Mas vós negastes o Santo e o Justo e pedistes que se vos desse um homem homicida.

15 And put to death the Lord of life; whom God gave back from the dead; of which fact we are witnesses.
15 E matastes o Príncipe da vida, ao qual Deus ressuscitou dos mortos, do que nós somos testemunhas.

16 And his name, through faith in his name, has made this man strong, whom you see and have knowledge of: yes, the faith which is through him has made him well, before you all.
16 E, pela fé no seu nome, fez o seu nome fortalecer a este que vedes e conheceis; e a fé que é por ele deu a este, na presença de todos vós, esta perfeita saúde.

17 And now, my brothers, I am conscious that you did this, as did your rulers, without knowledge.
17 E agora, irmãos, eu sei que o fizestes por ignorância, como também os vossos príncipes.

18 But the things which God had made clear before, by the mouth of all the prophets, that the Christ would have to undergo, he has put into effect in this way.
18 Mas Deus assim cumpriu o que já dantes pela boca de todos os seus profetas havia anunciado: que o Cristo havia de padecer.

19 So then, let your hearts be changed and be turned to God, so that your sins may be completely taken away, and times of blessing may come from the Lord;
19 Arrependei-vos, pois, e convertei-vos, para que sejam apagados os vossos pecados, e venham, assim, os tempos do refrigério pela presença do Senhor.

20 And that he may send the Christ who was marked out for you from the first, even Jesus:
20 E envie ele a Jesus Cristo, que já dantes vos foi pregado,

21 Who is to be kept in heaven till the time when all things are put right, of which God has given word by the mouth of his holy prophets, who have been from the earliest times.
21 o qual convém que o céu contenha até aos tempos da restauração de tudo, dos quais Deus falou pela boca de todos os seus santos profetas, desde o princípio.

22 For Moses said, The Lord will give you a prophet from among your people, like me; you will give ear to everything which he will say to you.
22 Porque Moisés disse: O Senhor, vosso Deus, levantará dentre vossos irmãos um profeta semelhante a mim; a ele ouvireis em tudo quanto vos disser.

23 And every soul who does not give attention to that prophet, will be cut off from among the people.
23 E acontecerá que toda alma que não escutar esse profeta será exterminada dentre o povo.

24 And all the prophets from Samuel and those who came after, every one of them, gave word of these days.
24 E todos os profetas, desde Samuel, todos quantos depois falaram, também anunciaram estes dias.

25 You are the sons of the prophets, and of the agreement which God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, Through your seed a blessing will come on all the families of the earth.
25 Vós sois os filhos dos profetas e do concerto que Deus fez com nossos pais, dizendo a Abraão: Na tua descendência serão benditas todas as famílias da terra.

26 To you, first, God sent his servant, blessing you by turning every one of you from his sins.
26 Ressuscitando Deus a seu Filho Jesus, primeiro o enviou a vós, para que nisso vos abençoasse, e vos desviasse, a cada um, das vossas maldades.

Acts 4

1 And while they were talking to the people, the priests and the captain of the Temple and the Sadducees came up to them,
1 E, estando eles falando ao povo, sobrevieram os sacerdotes, e o capitão do templo, e os saduceus,

2 Being greatly troubled because they were teaching the people and preaching Jesus as an example of the coming back from the dead.
2 doendo-se muito de que ensinassem o povo e anunciassem em Jesus a ressurreição dos mortos.

3 And they took them and put them in prison till the morning, for it was now evening.
3 E lançaram mão deles e os encerraram na prisão até ao dia seguinte, pois era já tarde.

4 But a number of those who gave hearing to the word had faith; and they were now about five thousand.
4 Muitos, porém, dos que ouviram a palavra creram, e chegou o número desses homens a quase cinco mil.

5 And on the day after, the rulers and those in authority and the scribes came together in Jerusalem;
5 E aconteceu, no dia seguinte, reunirem-se em Jerusalém os seus principais, os anciãos, os escribas,

6 And Annas, the high priest, was there, and Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and all the relations of the high priest.
6 e Anás, o sumo sacerdote, e Caifás, e João, e Alexandre, e todos quantos havia da linhagem do sumo sacerdote.

7 Then sending for Peter and John, they said, By what power and in whose name have you done this?
7 E, pondo-os no meio, perguntaram: Com que poder ou em nome de quem fizestes isto?

8 Then Peter, being full of the Holy Spirit, said to them, O you rulers of the people and men of authority,
8 Então, Pedro, cheio do Espírito Santo, lhes disse: Principais do povo e vós, anciãos de Israel,

9 If we are questioned today about a good work done to a man who was ill, as to how he has been made well,
9 visto que hoje somos interrogados acerca do benefício feito a um homem enfermo e do modo como foi curado,

10 Take note, all of you, and all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you put to death on the cross, whom God gave back from the dead, even through him is this man now before you completely well.
10 seja conhecido de vós todos e de todo o povo de Israel, que em nome de Jesus Cristo, o Nazareno, aquele a quem vós crucificastes e a quem Deus ressuscitou dos mortos, em nome desse é que este está são diante de vós.

11 He is the stone which you builders had no use for, but which has been made the chief stone of the building.
11 Ele é a pedra que foi rejeitada por vós, os edificadores, a qual foi posta por cabeça de esquina.

12 And in no other is there salvation: for there is no other name under heaven, given among men, through which we may have salvation.
12 E em nenhum outro há salvação, porque também debaixo do céu nenhum outro nome há, dado entre os homens, pelo qual devamos ser salvos.

13 Now when they saw that Peter and John were without fear, though they were men of no education or learning, they were greatly surprised; and they took note of them that they had been with Jesus.
13 Então, eles, vendo a ousadia de Pedro e João e informados de que eram homens sem letras e indoutos, se maravilharam; e tinham conhecimento de que eles haviam estado com Jesus.

14 And, seeing that the man who had been made well was there with them, they were not able to say anything against it.
14 E, vendo estar com eles o homem que fora curado, nada tinham que dizer em contrário.

15 But when they had given them orders to go out of the Sanhedrin, they had a discussion among themselves,
15 Todavia, mandando-os sair fora do conselho, conferenciaram entre si,

16 Saying, What are we to do with these men? for certainly it is clear to all who are living in Jerusalem that a most important sign has been done by them, and it is not possible to say that it is not so.
16 dizendo: Que havemos de fazer a estes homens? Porque a todos os que habitam em Jerusalém é manifesto que por eles foi feito um sinal notório, e não o podemos negar;

17 But so that it may not go farther among the people, let us put them in fear of punishment if they say anything in future in this name.
17 mas, para que não se divulgue mais entre o povo, ameacemo-los para que não falem mais nesse nome a homem algum.

18 And they sent for them, and gave them orders not to make statements or give teaching in the name of Jesus.
18 E, chamando-os, disseram-lhes que absolutamente não falassem, nem ensinassem, no nome de Jesus.

19 But Peter and John in answer said to them, It is for you to say if it is right in the eyes of God to give attention to you more than to God:
19 Respondendo, porém, Pedro e João, lhes disseram: Julgai vós se é justo, diante de Deus, ouvir-vos antes a vós do que a Deus;

20 For it is not possible for us to keep from saying what we have seen and have knowledge of.
20 porque não podemos deixar de falar do que temos visto e ouvido.

21 And when they had said more sharp words to them, they let them go, not seeing what punishment they might give them, because of the people; for all men were giving praise to God for what had taken place.
21 Mas eles ainda os ameaçaram mais e, não achando motivo para os castigar, deixaram-nos ir por causa do povo; porque todos glorificavam a Deus pelo que acontecera,

22 For the man on whom this act of power was done was more than forty years old.
22 pois tinha mais de quarenta anos o homem em quem se operara aquele milagre de saúde.

23 And when they had been made free, they came back to their friends, and gave an account of all the things which the chief priests and the authorities had said to them.
23 E, soltos eles, foram para os seus e contaram tudo o que lhes disseram os principais dos sacerdotes e os anciãos.

24 And hearing it, they all, with one mind, made prayer to God and said, O Lord, maker of heaven and earth and the sea and all things in them:
24 E, ouvindo eles isto, unânimes levantaram a voz a Deus e disseram: Senhor, tu és o que fizeste o céu, e a terra, e o mar, e tudo o que neles há;

25 Who has said, by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David your servant, Why are the nations so violently moved, and why are the thoughts of the people so foolish?
25 que disseste pela boca de Davi, teu servo: Por que bramaram as gentes, e os povos pensaram coisas vãs?

26 The kings of the earth were lifted up, the rulers came together, against the Lord, and against his Christ:
26 Levantaram-se os reis da terra, e os príncipes se ajuntaram à uma contra o Senhor e contra o seu Ungido.

27 For, truly, in this town, against your holy servant, Jesus, who was marked out by you as Christ, Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, came together,
27 Porque, verdadeiramente, contra o teu santo Filho Jesus, que tu ungiste, se ajuntaram, não só Herodes, mas Pôncio Pilatos, com os gentios e os povos de Israel,

28 To do that which had been fixed before by your hand and your purpose.
28 para fazerem tudo o que a tua mão e o teu conselho tinham anteriormente determinado que se havia de fazer.

29 And now, Lord, take note of their cruel words, and give your servants power to be preachers of your word without fear,
29 Agora, pois, ó Senhor, olha para as suas ameaças e concede aos teus servos que falem com toda a ousadia a tua palavra,

30 While your hand is stretched out to do works of mercy; so that signs and wonders may be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.
30 enquanto estendes a mão para curar, e para que se façam sinais e prodígios pelo nome do teu santo Filho Jesus.

31 And when their prayer was ended, the place where they were was violently moved, and they all became full of the Holy Spirit, preaching the word of God without fear.
31 E, tendo eles orado, moveu-se o lugar em que estavam reunidos; e todos foram cheios do Espírito Santo e anunciavam com ousadia a palavra de Deus.

32 And all those who were of the faith were one in heart and soul: and not one of them said that any of the things which he had was his property only; but they had all things in common.
32 E era um o coração e a alma da multidão dos que criam, e ninguém dizia que coisa alguma do que possuía era sua própria, mas todas as coisas lhes eram comuns.

33 And with great power the Apostles gave witness of the coming back of the Lord Jesus from the dead; and grace was on them all.
33 E os apóstolos davam, com grande poder, testemunho da ressurreição do Senhor Jesus, e em todos eles havia abundante graça.

34 And no one among them was in need; for everyone who had land or houses, exchanging them for money, took the price of them,
34 Não havia, pois, entre eles necessitado algum; porque todos os que possuíam herdades ou casas, vendendo-as, traziam o preço do que fora vendido e o depositavam aos pés dos apóstolos.

35 And put it at the feet of the Apostles for distribution to everyone as he had need.
35 E repartia-se a cada um, segundo a necessidade que cada um tinha.

36 And Joseph, who was given by the Apostles the name of Barnabas (the sense of which is, Son of comfort), a Levite and a man of Cyprus by birth,
36 Então, José, cognominado, pelos apóstolos, Barnabé (que, traduzido, é Filho da Consolação), levita, natural de Chipre,

37 Having a field, got money for it and put the money at the feet of the Apostles.
37 possuindo uma herdade, vendeu-a, e trouxe o preço, e o depositou aos pés dos apóstolos.

Acts 5

1 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, got money for his property,
1 Mas um certo varão chamado Ananias, com Safira, sua mulher, vendeu uma propriedade

2 And kept back part of the price, his wife having knowledge of it, and took the rest and put it at the feet of the Apostles.
2 e reteve parte do preço, sabendo-o também sua mulher; e, levando uma parte, a depositou aos pés dos apóstolos.

3 But Peter said, Ananias, why has the Evil One put it into your heart to be false to the Holy Spirit, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
3 Disse, então, Pedro: Ananias, por que encheu Satanás o teu coração, para que mentisses ao Espírito Santo e retivesses parte do preço da herdade?

4 While you had it, was it not your property? and after you had given it in exchange, was it not still in your power? how has this purpose come into your mind? you have been false, not to men, but to God.
4 Guardando-a, não ficava para ti? E, vendida, não estava em teu poder? Por que formaste este desígnio em teu coração? Não mentiste aos homens, mas a Deus.

5 And at these words, Ananias went down on the earth, and his life went from him: and great fear came on all who were present.
5 E Ananias, ouvindo estas palavras, caiu e expirou. E um grande temor veio sobre todos os que isto ouviram.

6 And the young men went and made ready his body, and took it out, and put it in the earth.
6 E, levantando-se os jovens, cobriram o morto e, transportando-o para fora, o sepultaram.

7 And about three hours after, his wife, having no knowledge of what had taken place, came in.
7 E, passando um espaço quase de três horas, entrou também sua mulher, não sabendo o que havia acontecido.

8 And Peter said to her, Give me an answer: was this amount of money the price of the land? And she said, Yes, it was.
8 E disse-lhe Pedro: Dize-me, vendestes por tanto aquela herdade? E ela disse: Sim, por tanto.

9 But Peter said to her, Why have you made an agreement together to be false to the Spirit of the Lord? See, the feet of the young men who have put the body of your husband in the earth, are at the door, and they will take you out.
9 Então, Pedro lhe disse: Por que é que entre vós vos concertastes para tentar o Espírito do Senhor? Eis aí à porta os pés dos que sepultaram o teu marido, e também te levarão a ti.

10 And straight away she went down at his feet, and her life went from her: and the young men came in and saw her dead, and they took her out and put her in the earth with her husband.
10 E logo caiu aos seus pés e expirou. E, entrando os jovens, acharam-na morta e a sepultaram junto de seu marido.

11 Then great fear came on all the church and on all who had knowledge of these things.
11 E houve um grande temor em toda a igreja e em todos os que ouviram estas coisas.

12 Now a number of signs and wonders were done among the people by the hands of the Apostles; and they were all together in Solomon’s covered way.
12 E muitos sinais e prodígios eram feitos entre o povo pelas mãos dos apóstolos. E estavam todos unanimemente no alpendre de Salomão.

13 The others, in fear, kept back from joining them: but the people made much of them;
13 Quanto aos outros, ninguém ousava ajuntar-se com eles; mas o povo tinha-os em grande estima.

14 And a great number of men and women had faith, and were joined to the Lord;
14 E a multidão dos que criam no Senhor, tanto homens como mulheres, crescia cada vez mais,

15 And they even took into the streets people who were ill, and put them on beds, so that when Peter went by, some of them might be in his shade.
15 de sorte que transportavam os enfermos para as ruas e os punham em leitos e em camilhas, para que ao menos a sombra de Pedro, quando este passasse, cobrisse alguns deles.

16 And numbers of people came together from the towns round about Jerusalem, with those who were ill and those who were troubled with unclean spirits: and they were all made well.
16 E até das cidades circunvizinhas concorria muita gente a Jerusalém, conduzindo enfermos e atormentados de espíritos imundos, os quais todos eram curados.

17 But the high priest and those who were with him (the Sadducees) were full of envy,
17 E, levantando-se o sumo sacerdote e todos os que estavam com ele (e eram eles da seita dos saduceus), encheram-se de inveja,

18 And they took the Apostles and put them in the common prison.
18 e lançaram mão dos apóstolos, e os puseram na prisão pública.

19 But in the night an angel of the Lord, opening the doors of the prison, took them out and said,
19 Mas, de noite, um anjo do Senhor abriu as portas da prisão e, tirando-os para fora, disse:

20 Go, take your place in the Temple and give the people all the teaching about this Life.
20 Ide, apresentai-vos no templo e dizei ao povo todas as palavras desta vida.

21 And hearing this, they went into the Temple at dawn, and were teaching. But the high priest and those who were with him got together the Sanhedrin and the representatives of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to get them.
21 E, ouvindo eles isto, entraram de manhã cedo no templo e ensinavam. Chegando, porém, o sumo sacerdote e os que estavam com ele, convocaram o conselho e a todos os anciãos dos filhos de Israel e enviaram servidores ao cárcere, para que de lá os trouxessem.

22 But the men who were sent saw that they were not in the prison, and came back with the news,
22 Mas, tendo lá ido os servidores, não os acharam na prisão e, voltando, lho anunciaram,

23 Saying, The doors of the prison were safely shut, and the keepers were at the doors, but when they were open, there was nobody inside.
23 dizendo: Achamos realmente o cárcere fechado, com toda a segurança, e os guardas, que estavam fora, diante das portas; mas, quando abrimos, ninguém achamos dentro.

24 Now, at these words, the captain of the Temple and the chief priests were greatly troubled about what might be the end of this business.
24 Então, o capitão do templo e os principais dos sacerdotes, ouvindo estas palavras, estavam perplexos acerca deles e do que viria a ser aquilo.

25 And someone came and said to them, The men, whom you put in prison, are in the Temple teaching the people.
25 E, chegando um, anunciou-lhes, dizendo: Eis que os homens que encerrastes na prisão estão no templo e ensinam ao povo.

26 Then the captain and some of the police went and took them, but not violently, for fear that they might be stoned by the people.
26 Então, foi o capitão com os servidores e os trouxe, não com violência (porque temiam ser apedrejados pelo povo).

27 And they took them into the Sanhedrin, and the high priest said to them,
27 E, trazendo-os, os apresentaram ao conselho. E o sumo sacerdote os interrogou, dizendo:

28 We gave you very clear orders not to give teaching in this name: and now Jerusalem is full of your teaching, and you are attempting to make us responsible for this man’s death.
28 Não vos admoestamos nós expressamente que não ensinásseis nesse nome? E eis que enchestes Jerusalém dessa vossa doutrina e quereis lançar sobre nós o sangue desse homem.

29 But Peter and the Apostles, answering, said, We have to do the orders of God, not of man.
29 Porém, respondendo Pedro e os apóstolos, disseram: Mais importa obedecer a Deus do que aos homens.

30 The God of our fathers gave Jesus back to life, whom you had put to death, hanging him on a tree.
30 O Deus de nossos pais ressuscitou a Jesus, ao qual vós matastes, suspendendo-o no madeiro.

31 Him God has put on high at his right hand, as a Ruler and a Saviour, to give to Israel a change of heart and forgiveness of sins.
31 Deus, com a sua destra, o elevou a Príncipe e Salvador, para dar a Israel o arrependimento e remissão dos pecados.

32 And we are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who keep his laws.
32 E nós somos testemunhas acerca destas palavras, nós e também o Espírito Santo, que Deus deu àqueles que lhe obedecem.

33 But when these words came to their ears, they were cut to the heart, and had a mind to put them to death.
33 Porém, ouvindo eles isto, se enfureceram e deliberaram matá-los.

34 But one of the Sanhedrin, a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a man of learning in the law, of whom all the people had a high opinion, got up and made a suggestion for the men to be put outside for a little time.
34 Mas, levantando-se no conselho um certo fariseu chamado Gamaliel, doutor da lei, venerado por todo o povo, mandou que, por um pouco, levassem para fora os apóstolos;

35 And he said to them, Men of Israel, take care what you do about these men.
35 e disse-lhes: Varões israelitas, acautelai-vos a respeito do que haveis de fazer a estes homens.

36 For before this there was Theudas, who said he was someone important, to whom about four hundred men gave their support: he was put to death, and his band was broken up and came to nothing.
36 Porque, antes destes dias, levantou-se Teudas, dizendo ser alguém; a este se ajuntou o número de uns quatrocentos homens; o qual foi morto, e todos os que lhe deram ouvidos foram dispersos e reduzidos a nada.

37 After this man, there was Judas of Galilee, at the time of the numbering, and some of the people went after him: he was put to death, and all his supporters were put to flight.
37 Depois deste, levantou-se Judas, o galileu, nos dias do alistamento, e levou muito povo após si; mas também este pereceu, e todos os que lhe deram ouvidos foram dispersos.

38 And now I say to you, Do nothing to these men, but let them be: for if this teaching or this work is of men, it will come to nothing:
38 E agora digo-vos: Dai de mão a estes homens, e deixai-os, porque, se este conselho ou esta obra é de homens, se desfará,

39 But if it is of God, you will not be able to overcome them, and you are in danger of fighting against God.
39 mas, se é de Deus, não podereis desfazê-la, para que não aconteça serdes também achados combatendo contra Deus.

40 And he seemed to them to be right: and they sent for the Apostles, and, after having them whipped and giving them orders to give no teaching in the name of Jesus, they let them go.
40 E concordaram com ele. E, chamando os apóstolos e tendo-os açoitado, mandaram que não falassem no nome de Jesus e os deixaram ir.

41 So they went away from the Sanhedrin, happy to undergo shame for the Name.
41 Retiraram-se, pois, da presença do conselho, regozijando-se de terem sido julgados dignos de padecer afronta pelo nome de Jesus.

42 And every day, in the Temple and privately, they went on teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.
42 E todos os dias, no templo e nas casas, não cessavam de ensinar e de anunciar a Jesus Cristo.

Acts 6

1 Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was increasing, protests were made by the Greek Jews against the Hebrews, because their widows were not taken care of in the distribution of food every day.
1 Ora, naqueles dias, crescendo o número dos discípulos, houve uma murmuração dos gregos contra os hebreus, porque as suas viúvas eram desprezadas no ministério cotidiano.

2 And the Apostles sent for all the disciples and said, It is not right for us to give up preaching the word of God in order to make distribution of food.
2 E os doze, convocando a multidão dos discípulos, disseram: Não é razoável que nós deixemos a palavra de Deus e sirvamos às mesas.

3 Take then from among you seven men of good name, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, to whom we may give control of this business.
3 Escolhei, pois, irmãos, dentre vós, sete varões de boa reputação, cheios do Espírito Santo e de sabedoria, aos quais constituamos sobre este importante negócio.

4 Then we will give all our time to prayer and the teaching of the word.
4 Mas nós perseveraremos na oração e no ministério da palavra.

5 And this saying was pleasing to all of them: and they made selection of Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip and Prochorus and Nicanor and Timon and Parmenas and Nicolas of Antioch, who had become a Jew:
5 E este parecer contentou a toda a multidão, e elegeram Estêvão, homem cheio de fé e do Espírito Santo, e Filipe, e Prócoro, e Nicanor, e Timão, e Pármenas e Nicolau, prosélito de Antioquia;

6 These they took to the Apostles, who, after prayer, put their hands on them.
6 e os apresentaram ante os apóstolos, e estes, orando, lhes impuseram as mãos.

7 And the word of God was increasing in power; and the number of the disciples in Jerusalem became very great, and a great number of priests were in agreement with the faith.
7 E crescia a palavra de Deus, e em Jerusalém se multiplicava muito o número dos discípulos, e grande parte dos sacerdotes obedecia à fé.

8 And Stephen, full of grace and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.
8 E Estêvão, cheio de fé e de poder, fazia prodígios e grandes sinais entre o povo.

9 But some of those who were of the Synagogue named that of the Libertines, and some of the men of Cyrene and of Alexandria and those from Cilicia and Asia, had arguments with Stephen.
9 E levantaram-se alguns que eram da sinagoga chamada dos Libertos, e dos cireneus, e dos alexandrinos, e dos que eram da Cilícia e da Ásia, e disputavam com Estêvão.

10 But they were not able to get the better of him, for his words were full of wisdom and of the Spirit.
10 E não podiam resistir à sabedoria e ao Espírito com que falava.

11 Then they got men to say, He has said evil against Moses and against God, in our hearing.
11 Então, subornaram uns homens para que dissessem: Ouvimos-lhe proferir palavras blasfemas contra Moisés e contra Deus.

12 And the people, with the rulers and the scribes, were moved against him, and they came and took him before the Sanhedrin,
12 E excitaram o povo, os anciãos e os escribas; e, investindo com ele, o arrebataram e o levaram ao conselho.

13 And they got false witnesses who said, This man is for ever saying things against this holy place and against the law:
13 Apresentaram falsas testemunhas, que diziam: Este homem não cessa de proferir palavras blasfemas contra este santo lugar e a lei;

14 For he has said in our hearing that this Jesus of Nazareth will put this place to destruction and make changes in the rules which were handed down to us by Moses.
14 porque nós lhe ouvimos dizer que esse Jesus Nazareno há de destruir este lugar e mudar os costumes que Moisés nos deu.

15 And all those who were in the Sanhedrin, looking at him, saw that his face was like the face of an angel.
15 Então, todos os que estavam assentados no conselho, fixando os olhos nele, viram o seu rosto como o rosto de um anjo.

Acts 7

1 Then the high priest said, Are these things true?
1 E disse o sumo sacerdote: Porventura, é isto assim?

2 And he said, My brothers and fathers, give hearing. The God of glory came to our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he was living in Haran,
2 E ele disse: Varões irmãos e pais, ouvi. O Deus da glória apareceu a Abraão, nosso pai, estando na Mesopotâmia, antes de habitar em Harã,

3 And said to him, Go out of your land, and away from your family, and come into the land to which I will be your guide.
3 e disse-lhe: Sai da tua terra e dentre a tua parentela e dirige-te à terra que eu te mostrar.

4 Then he came out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and went into Haran; and from there, when his father was dead, he was guided by God into this land, where you are living now:
4 Então, saiu da terra dos caldeus e habitou em Harã. E dali, depois que seu pai faleceu, Deus o trouxe para esta terra em que habitais agora.

5 And God gave him no heritage in it, not even enough to put his foot on: but he gave him an undertaking that he would give it to him and to his children after him, though he had no child at that time.
5 E não lhe deu nela herança, nem ainda o espaço de um pé; mas prometeu que lhe daria a posse dela e, depois dele, à sua descendência, não tendo ele filho.

6 And God said that his seed would be living in a strange land, and that they would make them servants, and be cruel to them for four hundred years.
6 E falou Deus assim: Que a sua descendência seria peregrina em terra alheia, e a sujeitariam à escravidão e a maltratariam por quatrocentos anos.

7 And I will be the judge, said God, of that nation which made them servants: and after that, they will come out and give me worship in this place.
7 E eu julgarei a nação que os tiver escravizado, disse Deus. E, depois disto, sairão e me servirão neste lugar.

8 And he made with him the agreement of which circumcision was the sign. And so Abraham had a son, Isaac, and gave him circumcision on the eighth day; and Isaac had a son, Jacob, and Jacob was the father of the twelve heads of the families of Israel.
8 E deu-lhe o pacto da circuncisão; e, assim, gerou a Isaque e o circuncidou ao oitavo dia; e Isaque, a Jacó; e Jacó, aos doze patriarcas.

9 And the brothers, moved with envy against Joseph, gave him to the Egyptians for money: but God was with him,
9 E os patriarcas, movidos de inveja, venderam a José para o Egito; mas Deus era com ele.

10 And made him free from all his troubles, and gave him wisdom and the approval of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, who made him ruler over Egypt and all his house.
10 E livrou-o de todas as suas tribulações e lhe deu graça e sabedoria ante Faraó, rei do Egito, que o constituiu governador sobre o Egito e toda a sua casa.

11 Now there was no food to be had in all Egypt and Canaan, and there was great trouble: and our fathers were not able to get food.
11 Sobreveio, então, a todo o país do Egito e de Canaã fome e grande tribulação; e nossos pais não achavam alimentos.

12 But Jacob, hearing that there was grain in Egypt, sent out our fathers the first time.
12 Mas, tendo ouvido Jacó que no Egito havia trigo, enviou ali nossos pais, a primeira vez.

13 And the second time his brothers had a meeting with Joseph, and Pharaoh had knowledge of Joseph’s family.
13 E, na segunda vez, foi José conhecido por seus irmãos, e a sua linhagem foi manifesta a Faraó.

14 Then Joseph sent for Jacob his father and all his family, seventy-five persons.
14 E José mandou chamar a Jacó, seu pai, e a toda sua parentela, que era de setenta e cinco almas.

15 And Jacob went down to Egypt, and came to his end there, and so did our fathers;
15 E Jacó desceu ao Egito e morreu, ele e nossos pais;

16 And they were taken over to Shechem, and put to rest in the place which Abraham got for a price in silver from the sons of Hamor in Shechem.
16 e foram transportados para Siquém e depositados na sepultura que Abraão comprara por certa soma de dinheiro aos filhos de Hamor, pai de Siquém.

17 But when the time was near for putting into effect the undertaking which God had given to Abraham, the people were increasing in Egypt,
17 Aproximando-se, porém, o tempo da promessa que Deus tinha feito a Abraão, o povo cresceu e se multiplicou no Egito;

18 Till another king came to power, who had no knowledge of Joseph.
18 até que se levantou outro rei, que não conhecia a José.

19 He, having evil designs against our nation, was cruel to our fathers, and they were forced to put out their young children, so that they might not go on living.
19 Esse, usando de astúcia contra a nossa linhagem, maltratou nossos pais, ao ponto de os fazer enjeitar as suas crianças, para que não se multiplicassem.

20 At which time Moses came to birth, and he was very beautiful; and he was kept for three months in his father’s house:
20 Nesse tempo, nasceu Moisés, e era mui formoso, e foi criado três meses em casa de seu pai.

21 And when he was put out, Pharaoh’s daughter took him and kept him as her son.
21 E, sendo enjeitado, tomou-o a filha de Faraó e o criou como seu filho.

22 And Moses was trained in all the wisdom of Egypt, and was great in his words and works.
22 E Moisés foi instruído em toda a ciência dos egípcios e era poderoso em suas palavras e obras.

23 But when he was almost forty years old, it came into his heart to go and see his brothers, the children of Israel.
23 E, quando completou a idade de quarenta anos, veio-lhe ao coração ir visitar seus irmãos, os filhos de Israel.

24 And seeing one of them being attacked, he went to his help and gave the Egyptian a death-blow:
24 E, vendo maltratado um deles, o defendeu e vingou o ofendido, matando o egípcio.

25 And he was hoping that his brothers would see that God had sent him to be their saviour; but they did not see.
25 E ele cuidava que seus irmãos entenderiam que Deus lhes havia de dar a liberdade pela sua mão; mas eles não entenderam.

26 And the day after, he came to them, while they were having a fight, and would have made peace between them, saying, Sirs, you are brothers; why do you do wrong to one another?
26 E, no dia seguinte, pelejando eles, foi por eles visto e quis levá-los à paz, dizendo: Varões, sois irmãos; por que vos agravais um ao outro?

27 But the man who was doing wrong to his neighbour, pushing him away, said, Who made you a ruler and a judge over us?
27 E o que ofendia o seu próximo o repeliu, dizendo: Quem te constituiu príncipe e juiz sobre nós?

28 Will you put me to death as you did the Egyptian yesterday?
28 Queres tu matar-me, como ontem mataste o egípcio?

29 And at these words, Moses went in flight to the land of Midian, and was living there for a time, and had two sons.
29 E a esta palavra fugiu Moisés e esteve como estrangeiro na terra de Midiã, onde gerou dois filhos.

30 At the end of forty years, an angel came to him in the waste land of Sinai, in the flame of a burning thorn-tree.
30 E, completados quarenta anos, apareceu-lhe o anjo do Senhor, no deserto do monte Sinai, numa chama de fogo de um sarçal.

31 And Moses, seeing it, was full of wonder, and when he came up to have a nearer view of it, the voice of the Lord came to him, saying,
31 Então, Moisés, quando viu isto, se maravilhou da visão; e, aproximando-se para observar, foi-lhe dirigida a voz do Senhor,

32 I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob. And Moses, shaking with fear, kept his eyes from looking at it.
32 dizendo: Eu sou o Deus de teus pais, o Deus de Abraão, e o Deus de Isaque, e o Deus de Jacó. E Moisés, todo trêmulo, não ousava olhar.

33 And the Lord said, Take off the shoes from your feet, for the place where you are is holy.
33 E disse-lhe o Senhor: Tira as sandálias dos pés, porque o lugar em que estás é terra santa.

34 Truly, I have seen the sorrows of my people in Egypt, and their cries have come to my ears, and I have come down to make them free: and now, come, I will send you to Egypt.
34 Tenho visto atentamente a aflição do meu povo que está no Egito, e ouvi os seus gemidos, e desci a livrá-los. Agora, pois, vem, e enviar-te-ei ao Egito.

35 This Moses, whom they would not have, saying, Who made you a ruler and a judge? him God sent to be a ruler and a saviour, by the hand of the angel whom he saw in the thorn-tree.
35 A este Moisés, ao qual haviam negado, dizendo: Quem te constituiu príncipe e juiz? A este enviou Deus como príncipe e libertador, pela mão do anjo que lhe aparecera no sarçal.

36 This man took them out, having done wonders and signs in Egypt and in the Red Sea and in the waste land, for forty years.
36 Foi este que os conduziu para fora, fazendo prodígios e sinais na terra do Egito, no mar Vermelho e no deserto, por quarenta anos.

37 This is the same Moses, who said to the children of Israel, God will give you a prophet from among your brothers, like me.
37 Este é aquele Moisés que disse aos filhos de Israel: O Senhor, vosso Deus, vos levantará dentre vossos irmãos um profeta como eu; a ele ouvireis.

38 This is the man who was in the church in the waste land with the angel who was talking to him in Sinai, and with our fathers; and to him were given the living words of God, so that he might give them to you.
38 Este é o que esteve entre a congregação no deserto, com o anjo que lhe falava no monte Sinai, e com nossos pais, o qual recebeu as palavras de vida para no-las dar.

39 By whom our fathers would not be controlled; but they put him on one side, turning back in their hearts to Egypt,
39 Ao qual nossos pais não quiseram obedecer, antes o rejeitaram e, em seu coração, se tornaram ao Egito,

40 And saying to Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: as for this Moses, who took us out of the land of Egypt, we have no idea what has become of him.
40 dizendo a Arão: Faze-nos deuses que vão adiante de nós; porque a esse Moisés, que nos tirou da terra do Egito, não sabemos o que lhe aconteceu.

41 And they made the image of a young ox in those days, and made an offering to it, and had joy in the work of their hands.
41 E, naqueles dias, fizeram o bezerro, e ofereceram sacrifícios ao ídolo, e se alegraram nas obras das suas mãos.

42 But God was turned from them and let them give worship to the stars of heaven, as it says in the book of the prophets, Did you make offerings to me of sheep and oxen for forty years in the waste land, O house of Israel?
42 Mas Deus se afastou e os abandonou a que servissem ao exército do céu, como está escrito no livro dos profetas: Porventura, me oferecestes vítimas e sacrifícios no deserto por quarenta anos, ó casa de Israel?

43 And you took up the tent of Moloch and the star of the god Rephan, images which you made to give worship to them: and I will take you away, farther than Babylon.
43 Antes, tomastes o tabernáculo de Moloque e a estrela do vosso deus Renfã, figuras que vós fizestes para as adorar. Transportar-vos-ei, pois, para além de Babilônia.

44 Our fathers had the Tent of witness in the waste land, as God gave orders to Moses to make it after the design which he had seen.
44 Estava entre nossos pais no deserto o tabernáculo do Testemunho (como ordenara aquele que disse a Moisés que o fizesse segundo o modelo que tinha visto),

45 Which our fathers, in their turn, took with them when, with Joshua, they came into the heritage of the nations whom God was driving out before the face of our fathers, till the time of David,
45 o qual nossos pais, recebendo-o também, o levaram com Josué, quando entraram na posse das nações que Deus lançou para fora da presença de nossos pais, até aos dias de Davi,

46 Who was pleasing to God; and he had a desire to make a holy tent for the God of Jacob.
46 que achou graça diante de Deus e pediu que pudesse achar tabernáculo para o Deus de Jacó.

47 But Solomon was the builder of his house.
47 E Salomão lhe edificou casa;

48 But still, the Most High has not his resting-place in houses made with hands, as the prophet says,
48 mas o Altíssimo não habita em templos feitos por mãos de homens, como diz o profeta:

49 Heaven is the seat of my power, and earth is a resting-place for my feet: what sort of house will you make for me, says the Lord, or what is my place of rest?
49 O céu é o meu trono, e a terra, o estrado dos meus pés. Que casa me edificareis, diz o Senhor, ou qual é o lugar do meu repouso?

50 Did not my hand make all these things?
50 Porventura, não fez a minha mão todas estas coisas?

51 You whose hearts are hard and whose ears are shut to me; you are ever working against the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you.
51 Homens de dura cerviz e incircuncisos de coração e ouvido, vós sempre resistis ao Espírito Santo; assim, vós sois como vossos pais.

52 Which of the prophets was not cruelly attacked by your fathers? and they put to death those who gave them the news of the coming of the Upright One; whom you have now given up and put to death;
52 A qual dos profetas não perseguiram vossos pais? Até mataram os que anteriormente anunciaram a vinda do Justo, do qual vós agora fostes traidores e homicidas;

53 You, to whom the law was given as it was ordered by angels, and who have not kept it.
53 vós que recebestes a lei por ordenação dos anjos e não a guardastes.

54 Hearing these things, they were cut to the heart and moved with wrath against him.
54 E, ouvindo eles isto, enfureciam-se em seu coração e rangiam os dentes contra ele.

55 But he was full of the Holy Spirit, and looking up to heaven, he saw the glory of God and Jesus at the right hand of God.
55 Mas ele, estando cheio do Espírito Santo e fixando os olhos no céu, viu a glória de Deus e Jesus, que estava à direita de Deus,

56 And he said, Now I see heaven open, and the Son of man at the right hand of God.
56 e disse: Eis que vejo os céus abertos e o Filho do Homem, que está em pé à mão direita de Deus.

57 But with loud cries, and stopping their ears, they made an attack on him all together,
57 Mas eles gritaram com grande voz, taparam os ouvidos e arremeteram unânimes contra ele.

58 Driving him out of the town and stoning him: and the witnesses put their clothing at the feet of a young man named Saul.
58 E, expulsando-o da cidade, o apedrejavam. E as testemunhas depuseram as suas vestes aos pés de um jovem chamado Saulo.

59 And Stephen, while he was being stoned, made prayer to God, saying, Lord Jesus, take my spirit.
59 E apedrejaram a Estêvão, que em invocação dizia: Senhor Jesus, recebe o meu espírito.

60 And going down on his knees, he said in a loud voice, Lord, do not make them responsible for this sin. And when he had said this, he went to his rest.
60 E, pondo-se de joelhos, clamou com grande voz: Senhor, não lhes imputes este pecado. E, tendo dito isto, adormeceu.

Acts 8

1 And Saul gave approval to his death. Now at that time a violent attack was started against the church in Jerusalem; and all but the Apostles went away into all parts of Judaea and Samaria.
1 E também Saulo consentiu na morte dele. E fez-se, naquele dia, uma grande perseguição contra a igreja que estava em Jerusalém; e todos foram dispersos pelas terras da Judéia e da Samaria, exceto os apóstolos.

2 And God-fearing men put Stephen’s body in its last resting-place, making great weeping over him.
2 E uns varões piedosos foram enterrar Estêvão e fizeram sobre ele grande pranto.

3 But Saul was burning with hate against the church, going into every house and taking men and women and putting them in prison.
3 E Saulo assolava a igreja, entrando pelas casas; e, arrastando homens e mulheres, os encerrava na prisão.

4 But those who had gone in flight went everywhere preaching the word.
4 Mas os que andavam dispersos iam por toda parte anunciando a palavra.

5 And Philip went down to Samaria and was teaching them about Christ.
5 E, descendo Filipe à cidade de Samaria, lhes pregava a Cristo.

6 And all the people gave attention to the words which Philip said, when they saw the signs which he did.
6 E as multidões unanimemente prestavam atenção ao que Filipe dizia, porque ouviam e viam os sinais que ele fazia,

7 For unclean spirits came out from those who had them, crying with a loud voice; and a number of those who were ill and broken in body were made well.
7 pois que os espíritos imundos saíam de muitos que os tinham, clamando em alta voz; e muitos paralíticos e coxos eram curados.

8 And there was much joy in that town.
8 E havia grande alegria naquela cidade.

9 But there was a certain man named Simon, who in the past had been a wonder-worker and a cause of surprise to the people of Samaria, saying that he himself was a great man:
9 E estava ali um certo homem chamado Simão, que anteriormente exercera naquela cidade a arte mágica e tinha iludido a gente de Samaria, dizendo que era uma grande personagem;

10 To whom they all gave attention, from the smallest to the greatest, saying, This man is that power of God which is named Great.
10 ao qual todos atendiam, desde o mais pequeno até ao maior, dizendo: Este é a grande virtude de Deus.

11 And they gave attention to him, because for a long time his wonder-working powers had kept them under his control.
11 E atendiam-no a ele, porque já desde muito tempo os havia iludido com artes mágicas.

12 But when they had faith in the good news given by Philip about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, a number of men and women had baptism.
12 Mas, como cressem em Filipe, que lhes pregava acerca do Reino de Deus e do nome de Jesus Cristo, se batizavam, tanto homens como mulheres.

13 And Simon himself had faith and, having had baptism, he went with Philip and, seeing the signs and the great wonders which he did, he was full of surprise.
13 E creu até o próprio Simão; e, sendo batizado, ficou, de contínuo, com Filipe e, vendo os sinais e as grandes maravilhas que se faziam, estava atônito.

14 Now when the Apostles at Jerusalem had news that the people of Samaria had taken the word of God into their hearts, they sent to them Peter and John;
14 Os apóstolos, pois, que estavam em Jerusalém, ouvindo que Samaria recebera a palavra de Deus, enviaram para lá Pedro e João,

15 Who, when they came there, made prayer for them, that the Holy Spirit might be given to them:
15 os quais, tendo descido, oraram por eles para que recebessem o Espírito Santo.

16 For up to that time he had not come on any of them; only baptism had been given to them in the name of the Lord Jesus.
16 (Porque sobre nenhum deles tinha ainda descido, mas somente eram batizados em nome do Senhor Jesus.)

17 Then they put their hands on them, and the Holy Spirit came on them.
17 Então, lhes impuseram as mãos, e receberam o Espírito Santo.

18 Now when Simon saw that the Holy Spirit was given through the touch of the Apostles’ hands, he made them an offering of money, saying,
18 E Simão, vendo que pela imposição das mãos dos apóstolos era dado o Espírito Santo, lhes ofereceu dinheiro,

19 Give me this power, so that when I put my hands on anyone he may get the Holy Spirit.
19 dizendo: Dai-me também a mim esse poder, para que aquele sobre quem eu puser as mãos receba o Espírito Santo.

20 But Peter said, May your money come to destruction with you, because you had the idea that what is freely given by God may be got for a price.
20 Mas disse-lhe Pedro: O teu dinheiro seja contigo para perdição, pois cuidaste que o dom de Deus se alcança por dinheiro.

21 You have no part in this business, because your heart is not right before God.
21 Tu não tens parte nem sorte nesta palavra, porque o teu coração não é reto diante de Deus.

22 Let your heart be changed, and make prayer to God that you may have forgiveness for your evil thoughts.
22 Arrepende-te, pois, dessa tua iniqüidade e ora a Deus, para que, porventura, te seja perdoado o pensamento do teu coração;

23 For I see that you are prisoned in bitter envy and the chains of sin.
23 pois vejo que estás em fel de amargura e em laço de iniqüidade.

24 And Simon, answering, said, Make prayer for me to the Lord, so that these things which you have said may not come on me.
24 Respondendo, porém, Simão disse: Orai vós por mim ao Senhor, para que nada do que dissestes venha sobre mim.

25 So they, having given their witness and made clear the word of the Lord, went back to Jerusalem, giving the good news on their way in a number of the small towns of Samaria.
25 Tendo eles, pois, testificado e falado a palavra do Senhor, voltaram para Jerusalém e, em muitas aldeias dos samaritanos, anunciaram o evangelho.

26 But an angel of the Lord said to Philip, Get up, and go to the south, to the road which goes from Jerusalem to Gaza, through the waste land.
26 E o anjo do Senhor falou a Filipe, dizendo: Levanta-te e vai para a banda do Sul, ao caminho que desce de Jerusalém para Gaza, que está deserto.

27 And he went and there was a man of Ethiopia, a servant of great authority under Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, and controller of all her property, who had come up to Jerusalem for worship;
27 E levantou-se e foi. E eis que um homem etíope, eunuco, mordomo-mor de Candace, rainha dos etíopes, o qual era superintendente de todos os seus tesouros e tinha ido a Jerusalém para adoração,

28 He was going back, seated in his carriage, and was reading the book of the prophet Isaiah.
28 regressava e, assentado no seu carro, lia o profeta Isaías.

29 And the Spirit said to Philip, Go near, and get on his carriage.
29 E disse o Espírito a Filipe: Chega-te e ajunta-te a esse carro.

30 And Philip, running up to him, saw that he was reading Isaiah the prophet, and said to him, Is the sense of what you are reading clear to you?
30 E, correndo Filipe, ouviu que lia o profeta Isaías e disse: Entendes tu o que lês?

31 And he said, How is that possible when I have no guide? And he made Philip get up by his side.
31 E ele disse: Como poderei entender, se alguém me não ensinar? E rogou a Filipe que subisse e com ele se assentasse.

32 Now the place in the book where he was reading was this: He was taken, like a sheep, to be put to death; and as a lamb is quiet when its wool is being cut, so he made no sound:
32 E o lugar da Escritura que lia era este: Foi levado como a ovelha para o matadouro; e, como está mudo o cordeiro diante do que o tosquia, assim não abriu a sua boca.

33 Being of low degree, his cause was not given a hearing: who has knowledge of his family? for his life is cut off from the earth.
33 Na sua humilhação, foi tirado o seu julgamento; e quem contará a sua geração? Porque a sua vida é tirada da terra.

34 And the Ethiopian said to Philip, About whom are these words said by the prophet? about himself, or some other?
34 E, respondendo o eunuco a Filipe, disse: Rogo-te, de quem diz isto o profeta? De si mesmo ou de algum outro?

35 So Philip, starting from this writing, gave him the good news about Jesus.
35 Então, Filipe, abrindo a boca e começando nesta Escritura, lhe anunciou a Jesus.

36 And while they were going on their way, they came to some water, and the Ethiopian said, See, here is water; why may I not have baptism?
36 E, indo eles caminhando, chegaram ao pé de alguma água, e disse o eunuco: Eis aqui água; que impede que eu seja batizado?

37 Then Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."
37 E disse Filipe: É lícito, se crês de todo o coração. E, respondendo ele, disse: Creio que Jesus Cristo é o Filho de Deus.

38 And he gave orders for the carriage to be stopped, and the two of them went down into the water, and Philip gave him baptism.
38 E mandou parar o carro, e desceram ambos à água, tanto Filipe como o eunuco, e o batizou.

39 And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord took Philip away; and the Ethiopian saw him no more, for he went on his way full of joy.
39 E, quando saíram da água, o Espírito do Senhor arrebatou a Filipe, e não o viu mais o eunuco; e, jubiloso, continuou o seu caminho.

40 But Philip came to Azotus, and went through all the towns, preaching the good news, till he came to Caesarea.
40 E Filipe se achou em Azoto e, indo passando, anunciava o evangelho em todas as cidades, até que chegou a Cesaréia.

Acts 9

1 But Saul, still burning with desire to put to death the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest,
1 E Saulo, respirando ainda ameaças e mortes contra os discípulos do Senhor, dirigiu-se ao sumo sacerdote

2 And made a request for letters from him to the Synagogues of Damascus, so that if there were any of the Way there, men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem.
2 e pediu-lhe cartas para Damasco, para as sinagogas, a fim de que, se encontrasse alguns daquela seita, quer homens, quer mulheres, os conduzisse presos a Jerusalém.

3 And while he was journeying, he came near Damascus; and suddenly he saw a light from heaven shining round him;
3 E, indo no caminho, aconteceu que, chegando perto de Damasco, subitamente o cercou um resplendor de luz do céu.

4 And he went down on the earth, and a voice said to him, Saul, Saul, why are you attacking me so cruelly?
4 E, caindo em terra, ouviu uma voz que lhe dizia: Saulo, Saulo, por que me persegues?

5 And he said, Who are you, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus, whom you are attacking:
5 E ele disse: Quem és, Senhor? E disse o Senhor: Eu sou Jesus, a quem tu persegues. Duro é para ti recalcitrar contra os aguilhões.

6 But get up, and go into the town, and it will be made clear to you what you have to do.
6 E ele, tremendo e atônito, disse: Senhor, que queres que faça? E disse-lhe o Senhor: Levanta-te e entra na cidade, e lá te será dito o que te convém fazer.

7 And the men who were with him were not able to say anything; hearing the voice, but seeing no one.
7 E os varões, que iam com ele, pararam espantados, ouvindo a voz, mas não vendo ninguém.

8 And Saul got up from the earth, and when his eyes were open, he saw nothing; and he was guided by the hand into Damascus.
8 E Saulo levantou-se da terra e, abrindo os olhos, não via a ninguém. E, guiando-o pela mão, o conduziram a Damasco.

9 And for three days he was not able to see, and he took no food or drink.
9 E esteve três dias sem ver, e não comeu, nem bebeu.

10 Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and the Lord said to him in a vision, Ananias! and he said, Here I am, Lord.
10 E havia em Damasco um certo discípulo chamado Ananias. E disse-lhe o Senhor em visão: Ananias! E ele respondeu: Eis-me aqui, Senhor!

11 And the Lord said to him, Get up, and go to the street which is named Straight, and make search at the house of Judas for one named Saul of Tarsus: for he is at prayer;
11 E disse-lhe o Senhor: Levanta-te, e vai à rua chamada Direita, e pergunta em casa de Judas por um homem de Tarso chamado Saulo; pois eis que ele está orando;

12 And he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and putting his hands on him, so that he may be able to see.
12 e numa visão ele viu que entrava um homem chamado Ananias e punha sobre ele a mão, para que tornasse a ver.

13 But Ananias said, Lord, I have had accounts of this man from a number of people, how much evil he has done to your saints at Jerusalem:
13 E respondeu Ananias: Senhor, de muitos ouvi acerca deste homem, quantos males tem feito aos teus santos em Jerusalém;

14 And here he has authority from the chief priests to make prisoners all who give worship to your name.
14 e aqui tem poder dos principais dos sacerdotes para prender a todos os que invocam o teu nome.

15 But the Lord said, Go without fear: for he is a special vessel for me, to give to the Gentiles and kings and to the children of Israel the knowledge of my name:
15 Disse-lhe, porém, o Senhor: Vai, porque este é para mim um vaso escolhido para levar o meu nome diante dos gentios, e dos reis, e dos filhos de Israel.

16 For I will make clear to him what troubles he will have to undergo for me.
16 E eu lhe mostrarei quanto deve padecer pelo meu nome.

17 And Ananias went out and came to the house, and putting his hands on him, said, Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, whom you saw when you were on your journey, has sent me, so that you may be able to see, and be full of the Holy Spirit.
17 E Ananias foi, e entrou na casa, e, impondo-lhe as mãos, disse: Irmão Saulo, o Senhor Jesus, que te apareceu no caminho por onde vinhas, me enviou, para que tornes a ver e sejas cheio do Espírito Santo.

18 And straight away it seemed as if a veil was taken from his eyes, and he was able to see; and he got up, and had baptism;
18 E logo lhe caíram dos olhos como que umas escamas, e recuperou a vista; e, levantando-se, foi batizado.

19 And when he had taken food his strength came back. And for some days he kept with the disciples who were in Damascus.
19 E, tendo comido, ficou confortado. E esteve Saulo alguns dias com os discípulos que estavam em Damasco.

20 And straight away, in the Synagogues, he was preaching Jesus as the Son of God.
20 E logo, nas sinagogas, pregava a Jesus, que este era o Filho de Deus.

21 And all those hearing him were full of wonder and said, Is not this the man who in Jerusalem was attacking all the worshippers of this name? and he had come here so that he might take them as prisoners before the chief priests.
21 Todos os que o ouviam estavam atônitos e diziam: Não é este o que em Jerusalém perseguia os que invocavam este nome e para isso veio aqui, para os levar presos aos principais dos sacerdotes?

22 But Saul went on increasing in power, and the Jews in Damascus were not able to give answers to the arguments by which he made it clear that Jesus was the Christ.
22 Saulo, porém, se esforçava muito mais e confundia os judeus que habitavam em Damasco, provando que aquele era o Cristo.

23 Then, after some days, the Jews made an agreement together to put him to death:
23 E, tendo passado muitos dias, os judeus tomaram conselho entre si para o matar.

24 But Saul got knowledge of their design. And they kept watch day and night on the roads out of the town, so that they might put him to death:
24 Mas as suas ciladas vieram ao conhecimento de Saulo; e, como eles guardavam as portas, tanto de dia como de noite, para poderem tirar-lhe a vida,

25 But his disciples took him by night and let him down from the wall in a basket.
25 tomando-o de noite os discípulos, o desceram, dentro de um cesto, pelo muro.

26 And when he came to Jerusalem, he made an attempt to be joined to the disciples, but they were all in fear of him, not taking him for a disciple.
26 E, quando Saulo chegou a Jerusalém, procurava ajuntar-se aos discípulos, mas todos o temiam, não crendo que fosse discípulo.

27 But Barnabas took him to the Apostles and gave them an account of how he had seen the Lord on the road, and had given hearing to his words, and how at Damascus he had been preaching in the name of Jesus without fear.
27 Então, Barnabé, tomando-o consigo, o trouxe aos apóstolos e lhes contou como no caminho ele vira ao Senhor, e este lhe falara, e como em Damasco falara ousadamente no nome de Jesus.

28 And he was with them, going in and out at Jerusalem,
28 E andava com eles em Jerusalém, entrando e saindo.

29 Preaching in the name of the Lord without fear; and he had discussions with the Greek Jews; but they were working for his death.
29 E falava ousadamente no nome de Jesus. Falava e disputava também contra os gregos, mas eles procuravam matá-lo.

30 And when the brothers had knowledge of it, they took him to Caesarea and sent him to Tarsus.
30 Sabendo-o, porém, os irmãos, o acompanharam até Cesaréia e o enviaram a Tarso.

31 And so the church through all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was made strong; and, living in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, was increased greatly.
31 Assim, pois, as igrejas em toda a Judéia, e Galiléia, e Samaria tinham paz e eram edificadas; e se multiplicavam, andando no temor do Senhor e na consolação do Espírito Santo.

32 And it came about that while Peter was going through all parts of the country he came to the saints who were living at Lydda.
32 E aconteceu que, passando Pedro por toda parte, veio também aos santos que habitavam em Lida.

33 And there was a certain man there, named Aeneas, who for eight years had been in bed, without power of moving.
33 E achou ali certo homem chamado Enéias, jazendo numa cama havia oito anos, o qual era paralítico.

34 And Peter said to him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ makes you well: get up and make your bed. And straight away he got up.
34 E disse-lhe Pedro: Enéias, Jesus Cristo te dá saúde; levanta-te e faze a tua cama. E logo se levantou.

35 And all those living in Lydda and Sharon saw him, and were turned to the Lord.
35 E viram-no todos os que habitavam em Lida e Sarona, os quais se converteram ao Senhor.

36 Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, that is, Dorcas: this woman was given to good works and acts of mercy at all times.
36 E havia em Jope uma discípula chamada Tabita, que, traduzido, se diz Dorcas. Esta estava cheia de boas obras e esmolas que fazia.

37 And it came about, in those days, that she got ill and came to her death: and when she had been washed, they put her in a room which was high up.
37 E aconteceu, naqueles dias, que, enfermando ela, morreu; e, tendo-a lavado, a depositaram num quarto alto.

38 And because Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, having knowledge that Peter was there, sent two men to him, requesting him to come to them straight away.
38 E, como Lida era perto de Jope, ouvindo os discípulos que Pedro estava ali, lhe mandaram dois varões, rogando-lhe que não se demorasse em vir ter com eles.

39 And Peter went with them. And when he had come, they took him into the room: and all the widows were there, weeping and putting before him the coats and clothing which Dorcas had made while she was with them.
39 E, levantando-se Pedro, foi com eles. Quando chegou, o levaram ao quarto alto, e todas as viúvas o rodearam, chorando e mostrando as túnicas e vestes que Dorcas fizera quando estava com elas.

40 But Peter made them all go outside, and went down on his knees in prayer; and turning to the body, he said, Tabitha, get up. And, opening her eyes, she saw Peter and got up.
40 Mas Pedro, fazendo-as sair a todas, pôs-se de joelhos e orou; e, voltando-se para o corpo, disse: Tabita, levanta-te. E ela abriu os olhos e, vendo a Pedro, assentou-se.

41 And he took her hand, lifting her up; and, sending for the saints and widows, he gave her to them, living.
41 E ele, dando-lhe a mão, a levantou e, chamando os santos e as viúvas, apresentou-lha viva.

42 And news of it went all through Joppa, and a number of people had faith in the Lord.
42 E foi isto notório por toda a Jope, e muitos creram no Senhor.

43 And he was living in Joppa for some time with Simon, a leather-worker.
43 E ficou muitos dias em Jope, com um certo Simão, curtidor.

Acts 10

1 Now there was a certain man in Caesarea, named Cornelius, the captain of the Italian band of the army;
1 E havia em Cesaréia um varão por nome Cornélio, centurião da coorte chamada Italiana,

2 A serious-minded man, fearing God with all his family; he gave much money to the poor, and made prayer to God at all times.
2 piedoso e temente a Deus, com toda a sua casa, o qual fazia muitas esmolas ao povo e, de contínuo, orava a Deus.

3 He saw in a vision, clearly, at about the ninth hour of the day, an angel of the Lord coming to him and saying to him, Cornelius!
3 Este, quase à hora nona do dia, viu claramente numa visão um anjo de Deus, que se dirigia para ele e dizia: Cornélio!

4 And he, looking on him in fear, said, What is it, Lord? And he said to him, Your prayers and your offerings have come up to God, and he has kept them in mind.
4 Este, fixando os olhos nele e muito atemorizado, disse: Que é, Senhor? E o anjo lhe disse: As tuas orações e as tuas esmolas têm subido para memória diante de Deus.

5 Now send men to Joppa, and get one Simon, named Peter,
5 Agora, pois, envia homens a Jope e manda chamar a Simão, que tem por sobrenome Pedro.

6 Who is living with Simon, a leather-worker, whose house is by the sea.
6 Este está com um certo Simão, curtidor, que tem a sua casa junto do mar. Ele te dirá o que deves fazer.

7 And when the angel who said these words to him had gone away, he sent for two of his house-servants, and a God-fearing man of the army, one of those who were waiting on him at all times;
7 E, retirando-se o anjo que lhe falava, chamou dois dos seus criados e a um piedoso soldado dos que estavam ao seu serviço.

8 And having given them an account of everything, he sent them to Joppa.
8 E, havendo-lhes contado tudo, os enviou a Jope.

9 Now the day after, when they were on their journey and were near the town, Peter went up to the top of the house for prayer, about the sixth hour:
9 E, no dia seguinte, indo eles seu caminho e estando já perto da cidade, subiu Pedro ao terraço para orar, quase à hora sexta.

10 And he was in need of food: but while they were getting it ready, a deep sleep came on him;
10 E, tendo fome, quis comer; e, enquanto lhe preparavam, sobreveio-lhe um arrebatamento de sentidos,

11 And he saw the heavens opening, and a vessel coming down, like a great cloth let down on the earth,
11 e viu o céu aberto e que descia um vaso, como se fosse um grande lençol atado pelas quatro pontas, vindo para a terra,

12 In which were all sorts of beasts and birds.
12 no qual havia de todos os animais quadrúpedes, répteis da terra e aves do céu.

13 And a voice came to him, saying, Come, Peter; take them for food.
13 E foi-lhe dirigida uma voz: Levanta-te, Pedro! Mata e come.

14 But Peter said, No, Lord; for I have never taken food which is common or unclean.
14 Mas Pedro disse: De modo nenhum, Senhor, porque nunca comi coisa alguma comum e imunda.

15 And the voice came to him a second time, What God has made clean, do not you make common.
15 E segunda vez lhe disse a voz: Não faças tu comum ao que Deus purificou.

16 And this was done three times: and then the vessel was taken back into heaven.
16 E aconteceu isto por três vezes; e o vaso tornou a recolher-se no céu.

17 Now while Peter was in doubt as to the purpose of this vision, the men who were sent by Cornelius, having made search for Simon’s house, came to the door,
17 E, estando Pedro duvidando entre si acerca do que seria aquela visão que tinha visto, eis que os varões que foram enviados por Cornélio pararam à porta, perguntando pela casa de Simão.

18 To see if Simon, named Peter, was living there.
18 E, chamando, perguntaram se Simão, que tinha por sobrenome Pedro, morava ali.

19 And, while Peter was turning the vision over in his mind, the Spirit said to him, See, three men are looking for you.
19 E, pensando Pedro naquela visão, disse-lhe o Espírito: Eis que três varões te buscam.

20 Go down, then, and go with them, doubting nothing, for I have sent them.
20 Levanta-te, pois, e desce, e vai com eles, não duvidando; porque eu os enviei.

21 And Peter went down to the men, and said, I am the man you are looking for: why have you come?
21 E, descendo Pedro para junto dos varões que lhe foram enviados por Cornélio, disse: Sou eu a quem procurais; qual é a causa por que estais aqui?

22 And they said, Cornelius, a captain, an upright and God-fearing man, respected by all the nation of the Jews, had word from God by an angel to send for you to his house, and to give hearing to your words.
22 E eles disseram: Cornélio, o centurião, varão justo e temente a Deus e que tem bom testemunho de toda a nação dos judeus, foi avisado por um santo anjo para que te chamasse a sua casa e ouvisse as tuas palavras.

23 So he took them in for the night. And the day after, he went with them, taking some of the brothers from Joppa with him.
23 Então, chamando-os para dentro, os recebeu em casa. No dia seguinte, foi Pedro com eles, e foram com ele alguns irmãos de Jope.

24 And the day after that, they came to Caesarea. And Cornelius was waiting for them, having got together his relations and his near friends.
24 E, no dia imediato, chegaram a Cesaréia. E Cornélio os estava esperando, tendo já convidado os seus parentes e amigos mais íntimos.

25 And when Peter came in, Cornelius came to him and, falling down at his feet, gave him worship.
25 E aconteceu que, entrando Pedro, saiu Cornélio a recebê-lo e, prostrando-se a seus pés, o adorou.

26 But Peter, lifting him up, said, Get up, for I am a man as you are.
26 Mas Pedro o levantou, dizendo: Levanta-te, que eu também sou homem.

27 And saying these words, he went in, and saw that a great number of people had come together;
27 E, falando com ele, entrou e achou muitos que ali se haviam ajuntado.

28 And he said to them, You yourselves have knowledge that it is against the law for a man who is a Jew to be in the company of one who is of another nation; but God has made it clear to me that no man may be named common or unclean:
28 E disse-lhes: Vós bem sabeis que não é lícito a um varão judeu ajuntar-se ou chegar-se a estrangeiros; mas Deus mostrou-me que a nenhum homem chame comum ou imundo.

29 And so I came without question, when I was sent for. What then is your purpose in sending for me?
29 Pelo que, sendo chamado, vim sem contradizer. Pergunto, pois: por que razão mandastes chamar-me?

30 And Cornelius said, Four days from now I was in my house in prayer at the ninth hour; and I saw before me a man in shining clothing,
30 E disse Cornélio: Há quatro dias estava eu em jejum até esta hora, orando em minha casa à hora nona.

31 Who said, Cornelius, your prayer has come to the ears of God, and your offerings are kept in his memory.
31 E eis que diante de mim se apresentou um varão com vestes resplandecentes e disse: Cornélio, a tua oração foi ouvida, e as tuas esmolas estão em memória diante de Deus.

32 Send, then, to Joppa, and get Simon, named Peter, to come to you; he is living in the house of Simon, a leather-worker, by the sea.
32 Envia, pois, a Jope e manda chamar Simão, o que tem por sobrenome Pedro; este está em casa de Simão, curtidor, junto do mar, e ele, vindo, te falará.

33 So, straight away, I sent for you; and you have done well to come. And now, we are all present before God, ready to give attention to all the things which the Lord has given you to say.
33 E logo mandei chamar-te, e bem fizeste em vir. Agora, pois, estamos todos presentes diante de Deus, para ouvir tudo quanto por Deus te é mandado.

34 Then Peter said, Truly, I see clearly that God is no respecter of persons:
34 E, abrindo Pedro a boca, disse: Reconheço, por verdade, que Deus não faz acepção de pessoas;

35 But in every nation, the man who has fear of him and does righteousness is pleasing to him.
35 mas que lhe é agradável aquele que, em qualquer nação, o teme e faz o que é justo.

36 The word which he sent to the children of Israel, giving the good news of peace through Jesus Christ (who is Lord of all)—
36 A palavra que ele enviou aos filhos de Israel, anunciando a paz por Jesus Cristo (este é o Senhor de todos),

37 That word you yourselves have knowledge of, which was made public through all Judaea, starting from Galilee, after the baptism of which John was the preacher,
37 esta palavra, vós bem sabeis, veio por toda a Judéia, começando pela Galiléia, depois do batismo que João pregou;

38 About Jesus of Nazareth, how God gave the Holy Spirit to him, with power: and how he went about doing good and making well all who were troubled by evil spirits, for God was with him.
38 como Deus ungiu a Jesus de Nazaré com o Espírito Santo e com virtude; o qual andou fazendo o bem e curando a todos os oprimidos do diabo, porque Deus era com ele.

39 And we are witnesses of all the things which he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem; whom they put to death, hanging him on a tree.
39 E nós somos testemunhas de todas as coisas que fez, tanto na terra da Judéia como em Jerusalém; ao qual mataram, pendurando-o num madeiro.

40 On the third day God gave him back to life, and let him be seen,
40 A este ressuscitou Deus ao terceiro dia e fez que se manifestasse,

41 Not by all the people, but by witnesses marked out before by God, even by us, who took food and drink with him after he came back from the dead.
41 não a todo o povo, mas às testemunhas que Deus antes ordenara; a nós que comemos e bebemos juntamente com ele, depois que ressuscitou dos mortos.

42 And he gave us orders to give news of this to the people, and to give public witness that this is he whom God has made judge of the living and the dead.
42 E nos mandou pregar ao povo e testificar que ele é o que por Deus foi constituído juiz dos vivos e dos mortos.

43 To him all the prophets give witness, that through his name everyone who has faith in him will have forgiveness of sins.
43 A este dão testemunho todos os profetas, de que todos os que nele crêem receberão o perdão dos pecados pelo seu nome.

44 While Peter was saying these words, the Holy Spirit came on all those who were hearing the word.
44 E, dizendo Pedro ainda estas palavras, caiu o Espírito Santo sobre todos os que ouviam a palavra.

45 And the Jews of the faith, who had come with Peter, were full of wonder, because the Holy Spirit was given to the Gentiles,
45 E os fiéis que eram da circuncisão, todos quantos tinham vindo com Pedro, maravilharam-se de que o dom do Espírito Santo se derramasse também sobre os gentios.

46 And they were talking in tongues, and giving glory to God. Then Peter said,
46 Porque os ouviam falar em línguas e magnificar a Deus.

47 Will any man say that these may not have baptism who have been given the Holy Spirit as we have?
47 Respondeu, então, Pedro: Pode alguém, porventura, recusar a água, para que não sejam batizados estes que também receberam, como nós, o Espírito Santo?

48 And he gave orders for them to have baptism in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they kept him with them for some days.
48 E mandou que fossem batizados em nome do Senhor. Então, rogaram-lhe que ficasse com eles por alguns dias.

Acts 11

1 Now the Apostles and the brothers who were in Judaea had news that the word of God had been given to the Gentiles.
1 E ouviram os apóstolos e os irmãos que estavam na Judéia que também os gentios tinham recebido a palavra de Deus.

2 And when Peter came to Jerusalem, those who kept the rule of circumcision had an argument with him,
2 E, subindo Pedro a Jerusalém, disputavam com ele os que eram da circuncisão,

3 Saying, You went to men without circumcision, and took food with them.
3 dizendo: Entraste em casa de varões incircuncisos e comeste com eles.

4 But Peter gave them an account of it all in order, saying to them,
4 Mas Pedro começou a fazer-lhes uma exposição por ordem, dizendo:

5 I was in the town of Joppa, at prayer: and falling into a deep sleep, I saw in a vision a vessel like a great cloth let down from heaven, and it came down to me:
5 Estando eu orando na cidade de Jope, tive, num arrebatamento dos sentidos, uma visão; via um vaso, como um grande lençol que descia do céu e vinha até junto de mim.

6 And looking on it with attention I saw in it all sorts of beasts and birds.
6 E, pondo nele os olhos, considerei e vi animais da terra, quadrúpedes, e feras, e répteis, e aves do céu.

7 And a voice came to my ears saying, Come, Peter; take them for food.
7 E ouvi uma voz que me dizia: Levanta-te, Pedro! Mata e come.

8 But I said, No, Lord; for nothing common or unclean has ever come into my mouth.
8 Mas eu disse: De maneira nenhuma, Senhor; pois nunca em minha boca entrou coisa alguma comum ou imunda.

9 But the voice, coming a second time from heaven, said, What God has made clean, do not you make common.
9 Mas a voz respondeu-me do céu segunda vez: Não chames tu comum ao que Deus purificou.

10 And this was done three times, and they were all taken up again into heaven.
10 E sucedeu isto por três vezes; e tudo tornou a recolher-se no céu.

11 And at that minute, three men, sent from Caesarea, came to the house where we were.
11 E eis que, na mesma hora, pararam junto da casa em que eu estava três varões que me foram enviados de Cesaréia.

12 And the Spirit gave me orders to go with them, doubting nothing. And these six brothers came with me; and we went into that man’s house:
12 E disse-me o Espírito que fosse com eles, nada duvidando; e também estes seis irmãos foram comigo, e entramos em casa daquele varão.

13 And he gave us an account of how he had seen the angel in his house, saying, Send to Joppa, and get Simon, named Peter, to come to you;
13 E contou-nos como vira em pé um anjo em sua casa, e lhe dissera: Envia varões a Jope e manda chamar a Simão, que tem por sobrenome Pedro,

14 Who will say words to you through which you and all your family may get salvation.
14 o qual te dirá palavras com que te salves, tu e toda a tua casa.

15 And, while I was talking to them, the Holy Spirit came on them, as on us at first.
15 E, quando comecei a falar, caiu sobre eles o Espírito Santo, como também sobre nós ao princípio.

16 And the words of the Lord came into my mind, how he said, The baptism of John was with water, but you will have baptism with the Holy Spirit.
16 E lembrei-me do dito do Senhor, quando disse: João certamente batizou com água, mas vós sereis batizados com o Espírito Santo.

17 If then God gave them, when they had faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the same as he gave to us, who was I to go against God?
17 Portanto, se Deus lhes deu o mesmo dom que a nós, quando cremos no Senhor Jesus Cristo, quem era, então, eu, para que pudesse resistir a Deus?

18 And hearing these things they said nothing more, but gave glory to God, saying, Then to the Gentiles as to us has God given a change of heart, so that they may have life.
18 E, ouvindo estas coisas, apaziguaram-se e glorificaram a Deus, dizendo: Na verdade, até aos gentios deu Deus o arrependimento para a vida.

19 Then those who had gone away at the time of the trouble about Stephen, went as far as Phoenicia and Cyprus, preaching to the Jews only.
19 E os que foram dispersos pela perseguição que sucedeu por causa de Estêvão caminharam até à Fenícia, Chipre e Antioquia, não anunciando a ninguém a palavra senão somente aos judeus.

20 But some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, when they came to Antioch, gave the good news about the Lord Jesus to the Greeks.
20 E havia entre eles alguns varões de Chipre e de Cirene, os quais, entrando em Antioquia, falaram aos gregos, anunciando o Senhor Jesus.

21 And the power of the Lord was with them, and a great number had faith and were turned to the Lord.
21 E a mão do Senhor era com eles; e grande número creu e se converteu ao Senhor.

22 And news of them came to the ears of the church at Jerusalem: and they sent Barnabas as far as Antioch:
22 E chegou a fama destas coisas aos ouvidos da igreja que estava em Jerusalém; e enviaram Barnabé até Antioquia,

23 Who, when he came and saw the grace of God, was glad; and he made clear to them the need of keeping near the Lord with all the strength of their hearts:
23 o qual, quando chegou e viu a graça de Deus, se alegrou e exortou a todos a que, com firmeza de coração, permanecessem no Senhor.

24 For he was a good man and full of the Holy Spirit and of faith: and a great number were joined to the Lord.
24 Porque era homem de bem e cheio do Espírito Santo e de fé. E muita gente se uniu ao Senhor.

25 Then he went on to Tarsus, looking for Saul;
25 E partiu Barnabé para Tarso, a buscar Saulo; e, achando-o, o conduziu para Antioquia.

26 And when he had come across him, he took him to Antioch. And they were with the church there for a year, teaching the people; and the disciples were first given the name of Christians in Antioch.
26 E sucedeu que todo um ano se reuniram naquela igreja e ensinaram muita gente. Em Antioquia, foram os discípulos, pela primeira vez, chamados cristãos.

27 Now in those days prophets came from Jerusalem to Antioch.
27 Naqueles dias, desceram profetas de Jerusalém para Antioquia.

28 And one of them, named Agabus, said publicly through the Spirit that there would be serious need of food all over the earth: which came about in the time of Claudius.
28 E, levantando-se um deles, por nome Ágabo, dava a entender, pelo Espírito, que haveria uma grande fome em todo o mundo, e isso aconteceu no tempo de Cláudio César.

29 And the disciples, everyone as he was able, made a decision to send help to the brothers living in Judaea:
29 E os discípulos determinaram mandar, cada um conforme o que pudesse, socorro aos irmãos que habitavam na Judéia.

30 Which they did, sending it to the rulers of the church by the hand of Barnabas and Saul.
30 O que eles com efeito fizeram, enviando-o aos anciãos por mão de Barnabé e de Saulo.

Acts 12

1 Now, about that time, Herod the king made cruel attacks on the Christians.
1 Por aquele mesmo tempo, o rei Herodes estendeu as mãos sobre alguns da igreja para os maltratar;

2 And he put James, the brother of John, to death with the sword.
2 e matou à espada Tiago, irmão de João.

3 And when he saw that this was pleasing to the Jews he went on to take Peter in addition. This was at the time of the feast of unleavened bread.
3 E, vendo que isso agradara aos judeus, continuou, mandando prender também a Pedro. E eram os dias dos asmos.

4 And having taken him, he put him in prison, with four bands of armed men to keep watch over him; his purpose being to take him out to the people after the Passover.
4 E, havendo-o prendido, o encerrou na prisão, entregando-o a quatro quaternos de soldados, para que o guardassem, querendo apresentá-lo ao povo depois da Páscoa.

5 So Peter was kept in prison: but the church made strong prayer to God for him.
5 Pedro, pois, era guardado na prisão; mas a igreja fazia contínua oração por ele a Deus.

6 And when Herod was about to take him out, the same night Peter was sleeping in chains between two armed men, and the watchmen were keeping watch before the door of the prison.
6 E, quando Herodes estava para o fazer comparecer, nessa mesma noite, estava Pedro dormindo entre dois soldados, ligado com duas cadeias, e os guardas diante da porta guardavam a prisão.

7 And a great light was seen shining in the room, and an angel of the Lord came to Peter and, touching him on his side so that he came out of his sleep, said, Get up quickly. And his chains came off his hands.
7 E eis que sobreveio o anjo do Senhor, e resplandeceu uma luz na prisão; e, tocando a Pedro no lado, o despertou, dizendo: Levanta-te depressa! E caíram-lhe das mãos as cadeias.

8 Then the angel said, Put on your shoes and get ready to go. And he did so. And he said, Put your coat round you and come with me.
8 E disse-lhe o anjo: Cinge-te e ata as tuas sandálias. E ele o fez assim. Disse-lhe mais: Lança às costas a tua capa e segue-me.

9 And he went out after him; and he was not certain if what was done by the angel was a fact, for it seemed to him that he was seeing a vision.
9 E, saindo, o seguia. E não sabia que era real o que estava sendo feito pelo anjo, mas cuidava que via alguma visão.

10 And when they had gone past the first and second watchmen they came to the iron door into the town, which came open by itself: and they went out and down one street; and then the angel went away.
10 E, quando passaram a primeira e a segunda guarda, chegaram à porta de ferro que dá para a cidade, a qual se lhes abriu por si mesma; e, tendo saído, percorreram uma rua, e logo o anjo se apartou dele.

11 And when Peter came to his senses he said, Now, truly, I am certain that the Lord has sent his angel and taken me out of the hands of Herod, against all the hopes of the Jews.
11 E Pedro, tornando a si, disse: Agora, sei, verdadeiramente, que o Senhor enviou o seu anjo e me livrou da mão de Herodes e de tudo o que o povo dos judeus esperava.

12 And when he became clear about this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John named Mark, where a number of them had come together for prayer.
12 E, considerando ele nisso, foi à casa de Maria, mãe de João, que tinha por sobrenome Marcos, onde muitos estavam reunidos e oravam.

13 And he gave a blow on the door, and a young girl came to it, named Rhoda.
13 E, batendo Pedro à porta do pátio, uma menina chamada Rode saiu a escutar.

14 And hearing the voice of Peter, in her joy she went running, without opening the door, to say that Peter was outside.
14 E, conhecendo a voz de Pedro, de alegria não abriu a porta, mas, correndo para dentro, anunciou que Pedro estava à porta.

15 And they said to her, You are off your head. But still she said, with decision, that it was so. And they said, It is his angel.
15 E disseram-lhe: Estás fora de ti. Mas ela afirmava que assim era. E diziam: É o seu anjo.

16 But Peter went on giving blows on the door: and when it was open and they saw him, they were full of wonder.
16 Mas Pedro perseverava em bater, e, quando abriram, viram-no e se espantaram.

17 But he made a sign to them with his hand to be quiet, and gave them an account of how the Lord had taken him out of prison. And he said, Give the news to James and the brothers. And then he went away.
17 E, acenando-lhes ele com a mão para que se calassem, contou-lhes como o Senhor o tirara da prisão e disse: Anunciai isto a Tiago e aos irmãos. E, saindo, partiu para outro lugar.

18 Now when it was day, the armed men were greatly troubled about what had become of Peter.
18 E, sendo já dia, houve não pouco alvoroço entre os soldados sobre o que seria feito de Pedro.

19 And Herod, when he sent for him, and he was not there, after questioning the watchmen, gave orders that they were to be put to death. Then he went down from Judaea to Caesarea for a time.
19 E, quando Herodes o procurou e o não achou, feita inquirição aos guardas, mandou-os justiçar. E, partindo da Judéia para Cesaréia, ficou ali.

20 Now he was very angry with the people of Tyre and Sidon: and they came to him, all together, and having made friends with Blastus, the controller of the king’s house, they made a request for peace, because their country was dependent on the king’s country for its food.
20 E ele estava irritado com os de Tiro e de Sidom; mas estes, vindo de comum acordo ter com ele e obtendo a amizade de Blasto, que era o camarista do rei, pediam paz, porquanto o seu país se abastecia do país do rei.

21 And on the day which had been fixed, Herod, dressed in his robes and seated in his place, made a public statement to them.
21 E, num dia designado, vestindo Herodes as vestes reais, estava assentado no tribunal e lhes dirigiu a palavra.

22 And the people, with loud cries, said, It is the voice of a god, not of a man.
22 E o povo exclamava: Voz de Deus, e não de homem!

23 And straight away the angel of the Lord sent a disease on him, because he did not give the glory to God: and his flesh was wasted away by worms, and so he came to his end.
23 No mesmo instante, feriu-o o anjo do Senhor, porque não deu glória a Deus; e, comido de bichos, expirou.

24 But the word of the Lord went on increasing.
24 E a palavra de Deus crescia e se multiplicava.

25 And Barnabas and Saul came back from Jerusalem, when their work was ended, taking with them John named Mark.
25 E Barnabé e Saulo, havendo terminado aquele serviço, voltaram de Jerusalém, levando também consigo a João, que tinha por sobrenome Marcos.

Acts 13

1 Now there were at Antioch, in the church there, prophets and teachers, Barnabas, and Symeon who was named Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, a relation of Herod the king, and Saul.
1 Na igreja que estava em Antioquia havia alguns profetas e doutores, a saber: Barnabé, e Simeão, chamado Níger, e Lúcio, cireneu, e Manaém, que fora criado com Herodes, o tetrarca, e Saulo.

2 And while they were doing the Lord’s work, and going without food, the Holy Spirit said, Let Barnabas and Saul be given to me for the special work for which they have been marked out by me.
2 E, servindo eles ao Senhor e jejuando, disse o Espírito Santo: Apartai-me a Barnabé e a Saulo para a obra a que os tenho chamado.

3 Then, after prayer and going without food they put their hands on them, and sent them away.
3 Então, jejuando, e orando, e pondo sobre eles as mãos, os despediram.

4 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia; and from there they went by ship to Cyprus.
4 E assim estes, enviados pelo Espírito Santo, desceram a Selêucia e dali navegaram para Chipre.

5 And at Salamis they were preaching the word of God in the Synagogues of the Jews: and John was with them, helping them.
5 E, chegados a Salamina, anunciavam a palavra de Deus nas sinagogas dos judeus; e tinham também a João como cooperador.

6 And when they had gone through all the island to Paphos, they came across a certain wonder-worker and false prophet, a Jew whose name was Bar-Jesus;
6 E, havendo atravessado a ilha até Pafos, acharam um certo judeu, mágico, falso profeta, chamado Barjesus,

7 Who was with the ruler, Sergius Paulus, an able man. This man sent for Barnabas and Saul, desiring to have knowledge of the word of God.
7 o qual estava com o procônsul Sérgio Paulo, varão prudente. Este, chamando a si Barnabé e Saulo, procurava muito ouvir a palavra de Deus.

8 But Elymas, the wonder-worker (for that is the sense of his name), put himself against them, with the purpose of turning the ruler from the faith.
8 Mas resistia-lhes Elimas, o encantador (porque assim se interpreta o seu nome), procurando apartar da fé o procônsul.

9 But Saul, whose other name is Paul, being full of the Holy Spirit, looking hard at him, said,
9 Todavia, Saulo, que também se chama Paulo, cheio do Espírito Santo e fixando os olhos nele, disse:

10 O you, who are full of false tricks and evil ways, a son of the Evil One, hating all righteousness, will you for ever be turning people from the right ways of the Lord?
10 Ó filho do diabo, cheio de todo o engano e de toda a malícia, inimigo de toda a justiça, não cessarás de perturbar os retos caminhos do Senhor?

11 And now, see, the hand of the Lord is on you, and you will be blind and not able to see the sun for a time. And straight away a dark mist came down on him; and he went about looking for a guide.
11 Eis aí, pois, agora, contra ti a mão do Senhor, e ficarás cego, sem ver o sol por algum tempo. No mesmo instante, a escuridão e as trevas caíram sobre ele, e, andando à roda, buscava a quem o guiasse pela mão.

12 Then the ruler, when he saw what was done, had faith, being full of wonder at the teaching of the Lord.
12 Então, o procônsul, vendo o que havia acontecido, creu, maravilhado da doutrina do Senhor.

13 Then Paul and those who were with him went by ship from Paphos and came to Perga in Pamphylia: and there John went away from them and came back to Jerusalem.
13 E, partindo de Pafos, Paulo e os que estavam com ele chegaram a Perge, da Panfília. Mas João, apartando-se deles, voltou para Jerusalém.

14 But they, going through from Perga, came to Antioch in Pisidia; and they went into the Synagogue on the Sabbath and were seated.
14 E eles, saindo de Perge, chegaram a Antioquia da Pisídia e, entrando na sinagoga, num dia de sábado, assentaram-se.

15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets, the rulers of the Synagogue sent to them, saying, Brothers, if you have a word of comfort for the people, say on.
15 E, depois da lição da Lei e dos Profetas, lhes mandaram dizer os principais da sinagoga: Varões irmãos, se tendes alguma palavra de consolação para o povo, falai.

16 And Paul, getting up and making a sign with his hand, said, Men of Israel, and you who have the fear of God, give ear.
16 E, levantando-se Paulo e pedindo silêncio com a mão, disse: Varões israelitas e os que temeis a Deus, ouvi:

17 The God of this people Israel made selection of our fathers, lifting the people up from their low condition when they were living in the land of Egypt, and with a strong arm took them out of it.
17 O Deus deste povo de Israel escolheu a nossos pais e exaltou o povo, sendo eles estrangeiros na terra do Egito; e com braço poderoso o tirou dela;

18 And for about forty years he put up with their ways in the waste land.
18 e suportou os seus costumes no deserto por espaço de quase quarenta anos.

19 And having put to destruction seven nations in the land of Canaan, he gave them the land for their heritage for about four hundred and fifty years.
19 E, destruindo a sete nações na terra de Canaã, deu-lhes por sorte a terra deles.

20 And after these things he gave them judges, till the time of Samuel the prophet.
20 E, depois disto, por quase quatrocentos e cinqüenta anos, lhes deu juízes, até ao profeta Samuel.

21 Then at their request for a king, God gave them Saul, the son of Kish, a man of the family of Benjamin, who was their king for forty years.
21 E, depois, pediram um rei, e Deus lhes deu, por quarenta anos, a Saul, filho de Quis, varão da tribo de Benjamim.

22 And having put him on one side, he made David their king, to whom he gave witness, saying, I have taken David, the son of Jesse, a man dear to my heart, who will do all my pleasure.
22 E, quando este foi retirado, lhes levantou como rei a Davi, ao qual também deu testemunho e disse: Achei a Davi, filho de Jessé, varão conforme o meu coração, que executará toda a minha vontade.

23 From this man’s seed has God given to Israel a Saviour, even Jesus, as he gave his word;
23 Da descendência deste, conforme a promessa, levantou Deus a Jesus para Salvador de Israel,

24 For whose coming John made ready the way by preaching to all the people of Israel the baptism which goes with a change of heart.
24 tendo primeiramente João, antes da vinda dele, pregado a todo o povo de Israel o batismo do arrependimento.

25 And when John was completing his work, he said, What do I seem to you to be? I am not he; but one is coming after me, whose shoes I am not good enough to undo.
25 Mas João, quando completava a carreira, disse: Quem pensais vós que eu sou? Eu não sou o Cristo; mas eis que após mim vem aquele a quem não sou digno de desatar as sandálias dos pés.

26 My brothers, children of the family of Abraham, and those among you who have the fear of God, to us the word of this salvation is sent.
26 Varões irmãos, filhos da geração de Abraão, e os que dentre vós temem a Deus, a vós vos é enviada a palavra desta salvação.

27 For the men of Jerusalem and their rulers, having no knowledge of him, or of the sayings of the prophets which come to their ears every Sabbath day, gave effect to them by judging him.
27 Por não terem conhecido a este, os que habitavam em Jerusalém e os seus príncipes, condenaram-no, cumprindo assim as vozes dos profetas que se lêem todos os sábados.

28 And though no cause of death was seen in him, they made a request to Pilate that he might be put to death.
28 E, embora não achassem alguma causa de morte, pediram a Pilatos que ele fosse morto.

29 And when they had done all the things said in the Writings about him, they took him down from the tree, and put him in the place of the dead.
29 E, havendo eles cumprido todas as coisas que dele estavam escritas, tirando-o do madeiro, o puseram na sepultura.

30 But God gave him back from the dead:
30 Mas Deus o ressuscitou dos mortos.

31 And for a number of days he was seen by those who came with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are now his witnesses before the people.
31 E ele, por muitos dias, foi visto pelos que subiram com ele da Galiléia a Jerusalém, e são suas testemunhas para com o povo.

32 And we are giving you the good news of the undertaking made to the fathers,
32 E nós vos anunciamos que a promessa que foi feita aos pais, Deus a cumpriu a nós, seus filhos, ressuscitando a Jesus,

33 Which God has now put into effect for our children, by sending Jesus; as it says in the second Psalm, You are my Son; this day I have given you being.
33 como também está escrito no Salmo segundo: Meu filho és tu; hoje te gerei.

34 And about his coming back from the dead, never again to go to destruction, he has said these words, I will give you the holy and certain mercies of David.
34 E que o ressuscitaria dos mortos, para nunca mais tornar à corrupção, disse-o assim: As santas e fiéis bênçãos de Davi vos darei.

35 Because he says in another Psalm, You will not let your Holy One see destruction.
35 Pelo que também em outro Salmo diz: Não permitirás que o teu Santo veja corrupção.

36 Now David, having done God’s work for his generation, went to sleep, and was put with his fathers, and his body came to destruction:
36 Porque, na verdade, tendo Davi, no seu tempo, servido conforme a vontade de Deus, dormiu, e foi posto junto de seus pais, e viu a corrupção.

37 But he, who was lifted up by God, did not see destruction.
37 Mas aquele a quem Deus ressuscitou nenhuma corrupção viu.

38 And so, let it be clear to you, my brothers, that through this man forgiveness of sins is offered to you:
38 Seja-vos, pois, notório, varões irmãos, que por este se vos anuncia a remissão dos pecados.

39 And through him everyone who has faith is made free from all those things, from which the law of Moses was not able to make you free.
39 E de tudo o que, pela lei de Moisés, não pudestes ser justificados, por ele é justificado todo aquele que crê.

40 So take care that these words of the prophets do not come true for you;
40 Vede, pois, que não venha sobre vós o que está dito nos profetas:

41 See, you doubters, have wonder and come to your end; for I will do a thing in your days to which you will not give belief, even if it is made clear to you.
41 Vede, ó desprezadores, e espantai-vos e desaparecei; porque opero uma obra em vossos dias, obra tal que não crereis se alguém vo-la contar.

42 And when they went out, they made a request that these words might be said to them again on the Sabbath after.
42 E, saídos os judeus da sinagoga, os gentios rogaram que no sábado seguinte lhes fossem ditas as mesmas coisas.

43 Now when the meeting was ended, a number of the Jews and of the God-fearing Gentiles who had become Jews, went after Paul and Barnabas: who put before them how important it was to keep on in the grace of God.
43 E, despedida a sinagoga, muitos dos judeus e dos prosélitos religiosos seguiram Paulo e Barnabé, os quais, falando-lhes, os exortavam a que permanecessem na graça de Deus.

44 And on the Sabbath after, almost all the town came together to give hearing to the word of God.
44 E, no sábado seguinte, ajuntou-se quase toda a cidade a ouvir a palavra de Deus.

45 But when the Jews saw such a great number of people, they were full of envy and said evil words against Paul’s preaching.
45 Então, os judeus, vendo a multidão, encheram-se de inveja e, blasfemando, contradiziam o que Paulo dizia.

46 Then Paul and Barnabas without fear said, It was necessary for the word of God to be given to you first; but because you will have nothing to do with it, and have no desire for eternal life, it will now be offered to the Gentiles.
46 Mas Paulo e Barnabé, usando de ousadia, disseram: Era mister que a vós se vos pregasse primeiro a palavra de Deus; mas, visto que a rejeitais, e vos não julgais dignos da vida eterna, eis que nos voltamos para os gentios.

47 For so the Lord has given us orders, saying, I have given you for a light to the Gentiles so that you may be for salvation to the ends of the earth.
47 Porque o Senhor assim no-lo mandou: Eu te pus para luz dos gentios, para que sejas de salvação até aos confins da terra.

48 And the Gentiles, hearing this, were glad and gave glory to the word of God: and those marked out by God for eternal life had faith.
48 E os gentios, ouvindo isto, alegraram-se e glorificavam a palavra do Senhor, e creram todos quantos estavam ordenados para a vida eterna.

49 And the word of the Lord went through all the country.
49 E a palavra do Senhor se divulgava por toda aquela província.

50 But the Jews, working up the feelings of the God-fearing women of high position and of the chief men of the town, got an attack started against Paul and Barnabas, driving them out of those parts.
50 Mas os judeus incitaram algumas mulheres religiosas e honestas, e os principais da cidade, e levantaram perseguição contra Paulo e Barnabé, e os lançaram fora dos seus limites.

51 But they, shaking off the dust of that place from their feet, came to Iconium.
51 Sacudindo, porém, contra eles o pó dos pés, partiram para Icônio.

52 And the disciples were full of joy and of the Holy Spirit.
52 E os discípulos estavam cheios de alegria e do Espírito Santo.

Acts 14

1 Now in Iconium they went together to the Synagogue of the Jews and gave such teaching that a great number of Jews and Greeks had faith.
1 E aconteceu que, em Icônio, entraram juntos na sinagoga dos judeus e falaram de tal modo, que creu uma grande multidão, não só de judeus, mas também de gregos.

2 But those Jews who had not the faith, made the minds of the Gentiles bitter against the brothers.
2 Mas os judeus incrédulos incitaram e irritaram, contra os irmãos, os ânimos dos gentios.

3 So they kept there for a long time, taking heart in the Lord, who gave witness to the word of his grace by causing signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
3 Detiveram-se, pois, muito tempo, falando ousadamente acerca do Senhor, o qual dava testemunho à palavra da sua graça, permitindo que por suas mãos se fizessem sinais e prodígios.

4 But there was a division among the people of the town; some were on the side of the Jews and some on the side of the Apostles.
4 E dividiu-se a multidão da cidade: uns eram pelos judeus, e outros, pelos apóstolos.

5 And when a violent attempt was made by the Gentiles and the Jews, with their rulers, to make an attack on them and have them stoned,
5 E, havendo um motim, tanto dos judeus como dos gentios com os seus principais, para os insultarem e apedrejarem,

6 Having got news of it, they went in flight to the towns of Lycaonia, Lystra, and Derbe, and the country round about:
6 sabendo-o eles, fugiram para Listra e Derbe, cidades da Licaônia, e para a província circunvizinha;

7 And went on preaching the good news there.
7 e ali pregavam o evangelho.

8 And at Lystra there was a certain man, who from birth had been without the use of his feet, never having had the power of walking.
8 E estava assentado em Listra certo varão leso dos pés, coxo desde o seu nascimento, o qual nunca tinha andado.

9 This man was giving ear to the preaching of Paul, who, looking at him, and seeing that he had faith to be made well,
9 Este ouviu falar Paulo, que, fixando nele os olhos e vendo que tinha fé para ser curado,

10 Said in a loud voice, Get up on your feet. And, jumping up, he went walking about.
10 disse em voz alta: Levanta-te direito sobre teus pés. E ele saltou e andou.

11 And when the people saw what Paul had done, they said in a loud voice, in the language of Lycaonia, The gods have come down to us in the form of men.
11 E as multidões, vendo o que Paulo fizera, levantaram a voz, dizendo em língua licaônica: Fizeram-se os deuses semelhantes aos homens e desceram até nós.

12 And they gave the name of Jupiter to Barnabas, and to Paul that of Mercury, because he was the chief talker.
12 E chamavam Júpiter a Barnabé, e Mercúrio, a Paulo, porque este era o que falava.

13 And the priest of the image of Jupiter, which was before the town, took oxen and flowers to the doors of the town, and was about to make an offering with the people.
13 E o sacerdote de Júpiter, cujo templo estava em frente da cidade, trazendo para a entrada da porta touros e grinaldas, queria com a multidão sacrificar-lhes.

14 But when this came to the ears of the Apostles, Paul and Barnabas, they went running out among the people, parting their clothing, and crying out,
14 Ouvindo, porém, isto os apóstolos Barnabé e Paulo, rasgaram as suas vestes e saltaram para o meio da multidão, clamando

15 Good people, why are you doing these things? We are men with the same feelings as you, and we give you the good news so that you may be turned away from these foolish things to the living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all things in them:
15 e dizendo: Varões, por que fazeis essas coisas? Nós também somos homens como vós, sujeitos às mesmas paixões, e vos anunciamos que vos convertais dessas vaidades ao Deus vivo, que fez o céu, e a terra, e o mar, e tudo quanto há neles;

16 Who in the past let all nations go in the ways which seemed good to them.
16 o qual, nos tempos passados, deixou andar todos os povos em seus próprios caminhos;

17 But he was not without witness, because he did good, and gave you rain from heaven and times of fruit, making your hearts full of food and joy.
17 contudo, não se deixou a si mesmo sem testemunho, beneficiando-vos lá do céu, dando-vos chuvas e tempos frutíferos, enchendo de mantimento e de alegria o vosso coração.

18 And even with these words, it was hard for them to keep the people from making an offering to them.
18 Dizendo isto, com dificuldade impediram que as multidões lhes sacrificassem.

19 But some Jews came to that place from Antioch and Iconium, and got control over the people; and after stoning Paul, they had him pulled out of the town, taking him for dead.
19 Sobrevieram, porém, uns judeus de Antioquia e de Icônio, que, tendo convencido a multidão, apedrejaram a Paulo e o arrastaram para fora da cidade, cuidando que estava morto.

20 But when the disciples came round him, he got up and went into the town: and the day after he went away with Barnabas to Derbe.
20 Mas, rodeando-o os discípulos, levantou-se e entrou na cidade. E, no dia seguinte, saiu, com Barnabé, para Derbe.

21 And having made a number of disciples through the preaching of the good news in that town, they went back to Lystra and Iconium and Antioch,
21 E, tendo anunciado o evangelho naquela cidade e feito muitos discípulos, voltaram para Listra, e Icônio, e Antioquia,

22 Making strong the souls of the disciples, saying to them that they were to keep the faith, and that we have to go through troubles of all sorts to come into the kingdom of God.
22 confirmando o ânimo dos discípulos, exortando-os a permanecer na fé, pois que por muitas tribulações nos importa entrar no Reino de Deus.

23 And when they had made selection of some to be rulers in every church, and had given themselves to prayer and kept themselves from food, they put them into the care of the Lord in whom they had faith.
23 E, havendo-lhes por comum consentimento eleito anciãos em cada igreja, orando com jejuns, os encomendaram ao Senhor em quem haviam crido.

24 And they went through Pisidia and came to Pamphylia.
24 Passando depois por Pisídia, dirigiram-se a Panfília.

25 And, after preaching the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia;
25 E, tendo anunciado a palavra em Perge, desceram a Atália.

26 And from there they went by ship to Antioch, where they had been handed over to the grace of God for the work which they had not done.
26 E dali navegaram para Antioquia, onde tinham sido recomendados à graça de Deus para a obra que já haviam cumprido.

27 And when they came there, and had got the church together, they gave them an account of all the things which God had done through them, and how he had made open a door of faith to the Gentiles.
27 E, quando chegaram e reuniram a igreja, relataram quão grandes coisas Deus fizera por eles e como abrira aos gentios a porta da fé.

28 And they were with the disciples there for a long time.
28 E ficaram ali não pouco tempo com os discípulos.

Acts 15

1 Now certain men came down from Judaea, teaching the brothers and saying that without circumcision, after the rule of Moses, there is no salvation.
1 Então, alguns que tinham descido da Judéia ensinavam assim os irmãos: Se vos não circuncidardes, conforme o uso de Moisés, não podeis salvar-vos.

2 And after Paul and Barnabas had had no little argument and discussion with them, the brothers made a decision to send Paul and Barnabas and certain others of them to the Apostles and the rulers of the church at Jerusalem about this question.
2 Tendo tido Paulo e Barnabé não pequena discussão e contenda contra eles, resolveu-se que Paulo, Barnabé e alguns dentre eles subissem a Jerusalém aos apóstolos e aos anciãos sobre aquela questão.

3 So they, being sent on their way by the church, went through Phoenicia and Samaria, giving news of the salvation of the Gentiles, to the great joy of all the brothers.
3 E eles, sendo acompanhados pela igreja, passaram pela Fenícia e por Samaria, contando a conversão dos gentios, e davam grande alegria a todos os irmãos.

4 And when they came to Jerusalem, they had a meeting with the church and the Apostles and the rulers, and they gave an account of all the things which God had done through them.
4 Quando chegaram a Jerusalém, foram recebidos pela igreja e pelos apóstolos e anciãos e lhes anunciaram quão grandes coisas Deus tinha feito com eles.

5 But some of the Pharisees, who were of the faith, got up and said, It is necessary for these to have circumcision and to keep the law of Moses.
5 Alguns, porém, da seita dos fariseus que tinham crido se levantaram, dizendo que era mister circuncidá-los e mandar-lhes que guardassem a lei de Moisés.

6 And the Apostles and the rulers of the church came together and gave thought to the question.
6 Congregaram-se, pois, os apóstolos e os anciãos para considerar este assunto.

7 And when there had been much discussion, Peter got up and said to them, My brothers, you have knowledge that some time back it was God’s pleasure that by my mouth the good news might be given to the Gentiles so that they might have faith.
7 E, havendo grande contenda, levantou-se Pedro e disse- lhes: Varões irmãos, bem sabeis que já há muito tempo Deus me elegeu dentre vós, para que os gentios ouvissem da minha boca a palavra do evangelho e cressem.

8 And God, the searcher of hearts, was a witness to them, giving them the Holy Spirit even as he did to us;
8 E Deus, que conhece os corações, lhes deu testemunho, dando-lhes o Espírito Santo, assim como também a nós;

9 Making no division between them and us, but making clean their hearts by faith.
9 e não fez diferença alguma entre eles e nós, purificando o seu coração pela fé.

10 Why then are you testing God, by putting on the neck of the disciples a yoke so hard that not even our fathers or we were strong enough for it?
10 Agora, pois, por que tentais a Deus, pondo sobre a cerviz dos discípulos um jugo que nem nossos pais nem nós podemos suportar?

11 But we have faith that we will get salvation through the grace of the Lord Jesus in the same way as they.
11 Mas cremos que seremos salvos pela graça do Senhor Jesus Cristo, como eles também.

12 And all the people were quiet while Barnabas and Paul gave an account of the signs and wonders which God had done among the Gentiles by them.
12 Então, toda a multidão se calou e escutava a Barnabé e a Paulo, que contavam quão grandes sinais e prodígios Deus havia feito por meio deles entre os gentios.

13 And when they had come to an end, James, answering, said, My brothers, give ear to me:
13 E, havendo-se eles calado, tomou Tiago a palavra, dizendo: Varões irmãos, ouvi-me.

14 Symeon has given an account of how God was first pleased to take from among the Gentiles a people for himself.
14 Simão relatou como, primeiramente, Deus visitou os gentios, para tomar deles um povo para o seu nome.

15 And this is in agreement with the words of the prophets, as it is said,
15 E com isto concordam as palavras dos profetas, como está escrito:

16 After these things I will come back, and will put up the tent of David which has been broken down, building up again its broken parts and making it complete:
16 Depois disto, voltarei e reedificarei o tabernáculo de Davi, que está caído; levantá-lo-ei das suas ruínas e tornarei a edificá-lo.

17 So that the rest of men may make search for the Lord, and all the Gentiles on whom my name is named,
17 Para que o resto dos homens busque ao Senhor, e também todos os gentios sobre os quais o meu nome é invocado, diz o Senhor, que faz todas estas coisas

18 Says the Lord, who has made these things clear from the earliest times.
18 que são conhecidas desde toda a eternidade.

19 For this reason my decision is, that we do not put trouble in the way of those who from among the Gentiles are turned to God;
19 Pelo que julgo que não se deve perturbar aqueles, dentre os gentios, que se convertem a Deus,

20 But that we give them orders to keep themselves from things offered to false gods, and from the evil desires of the body, and from the flesh of animals put to death in ways against the law, and from blood.
20 mas escrever-lhes que se abstenham das contaminações dos ídolos, da prostituição, do que é sufocado e do sangue.

21 For Moses, from times long past, has his preachers in every town, reading his law in the Synagogues every Sabbath.
21 Porque Moisés, desde os tempos antigos, tem em cada cidade quem o pregue e, cada sábado, é lido nas sinagogas.

22 Then it seemed good to the Apostles and the rulers and all the church, to send men from among them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas; Judas, named Barsabbas, and Silas, chief men among the brothers:
22 Então, pareceu bem aos apóstolos e aos anciãos, com toda a igreja, eleger varões dentre eles e enviá-los com Paulo e Barnabé a Antioquia, a saber: Judas, chamado Barsabás, e Silas, varões distintos entre os irmãos.

23 And they sent a letter by them, saying, The Apostles and the older brothers, to the brothers who are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia, may joy be with you:
23 E por intermédio deles escreveram o seguinte: Os apóstolos, e os anciãos, e os irmãos, aos irmãos dentre os gentios que estão em Antioquia, Síria e Cilícia, saúde.

24 Because we have knowledge that some who went from us have been troubling you with their words, putting your souls in doubt; to whom we gave no such order;
24 Porquanto ouvimos que alguns que saíram dentre nós vos perturbaram com palavras e transtornaram a vossa alma (não lhes tendo nós dado mandamento),

25 It seemed good to us, having come to an agreement together, to send these men to you, with our well loved Barnabas and Paul,
25 pareceu-nos bem, reunidos concordemente, eleger alguns varões e enviá-los com os nossos amados Barnabé e Paulo,

26 Men who have given up their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
26 homens que já expuseram a vida pelo nome de nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo.

27 And so we have sent Judas and Silas, who will say the same things to you themselves, by word of mouth.
27 Enviamos, portanto, Judas e Silas, os quais de boca vos anunciarão também o mesmo.

28 For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us, to put on you nothing more than these necessary things;
28 Na verdade, pareceu bem ao Espírito Santo e a nós não vos impor mais encargo algum, senão estas coisas necessárias:

29 To keep from things offered to false gods, and from blood, and from things put to death in ways which are against the law, and from the evil desires of the body; if you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. May you be happy.
29 Que vos abstenhais das coisas sacrificadas aos ídolos, e do sangue, e da carne sufocada, e da fornicação; destas coisas fareis bem se vos guardardes. Bem vos vá.

30 So they, being sent away, came down to Antioch, and having got the people together, they gave them the letter.
30 Tendo-se eles, então, despedido, partiram para Antioquia e, ajuntando a multidão, entregaram a carta.

31 And after reading it, they were glad of its comfort.
31 E, quando a leram, alegraram-se pela exortação.

32 And Judas and Silas, who themselves were prophets, gave teaching to the brothers and made them strong in the faith.
32 Depois, Judas e Silas, que também eram profetas, exortaram e confirmaram os irmãos com muitas palavras.

33 And when they had been there for some time, they were sent back in peace by the brothers to those who had sent them.
33 E, detendo-se ali algum tempo, os irmãos os deixaram voltar em paz para os apóstolos,

34
34 mas pareceu bem a Silas ficar ali.

35 But Paul and Barnabas kept on in Antioch, teaching and preaching the word of God, with a number of others.
35 E Paulo e Barnabé ficaram em Antioquia, ensinando e pregando, com muitos outros, a palavra do Senhor.

36 And after some days, Paul said to Barnabas, Let us go back and see the brothers in every town where we have given the word of God, and see how they are.
36 Alguns dias depois, disse Paulo a Barnabé: Tornemos a visitar nossos irmãos por todas as cidades em que já anunciamos a palavra do Senhor, para ver como estão.

37 And Barnabas had a desire to take with them John, named Mark.
37 E Barnabé aconselhava que tomassem consigo a João, chamado Marcos.

38 But Paul was of the opinion that it was not right to take with them one who had gone away from them in Pamphylia, and had not gone on with the work.
38 Mas a Paulo parecia razoável que não tomassem consigo aquele que desde a Panfília se tinha apartado deles e não os acompanhou naquela obra.

39 And there was a sharp argument between them, so that they were parted from one another, and Barnabas took Mark with him and went by ship to Cyprus;
39 E tal contenda houve entre eles, que se apartaram um do outro. Barnabé, levando consigo a Marcos, navegou para Chipre.

40 But Paul took Silas and went away with the blessing of the brothers.
40 E Paulo, tendo escolhido a Silas, partiu, encomendado pelos irmãos à graça de Deus.

41 And he went through Syria and Cilicia, making the churches stronger in the faith.
41 E passou pela Síria e Cilícia, confirmando as igrejas.

Acts 16

1 And he came to Derbe and Lystra: and there was a certain disciple there named Timothy, whose mother was one of the Jews of the faith, but his father was a Greek;
1 E chegou a Derbe e Listra. E eis que estava ali um certo discípulo por nome Timóteo, filho de uma judia que era crente, mas de pai grego,

2 Of whom the brothers at Lystra and Iconium had a high opinion.
2 do qual davam bom testemunho os irmãos que estavam em Listra e em Icônio.

3 Paul had a desire for him to go with him, and he gave him circumcision because of the Jews who were in those parts: for they all had knowledge that his father was a Greek.
3 Paulo quis que este fosse com ele e, tomando-o, o circuncidou, por causa dos judeus que estavam naqueles lugares; porque todos sabiam que seu pai era grego.

4 And on their way through the towns, they gave them the rules which had been made by the Apostles and the rulers of the church at Jerusalem, so that they might keep them.
4 E, quando iam passando pelas cidades, lhes entregavam, para serem observados, os decretos que haviam sido estabelecidos pelos apóstolos e anciãos em Jerusalém,

5 So the churches were made strong in the faith and were increased in number every day.
5 de sorte que as igrejas eram confirmadas na fé e cada dia cresciam em número.

6 And after they had gone through the land of Phrygia and Galatia, the Holy Spirit did not let them take the word into Asia;
6 E, passando pela Frígia e pela província da Galácia, foram impedidos pelo Espírito Santo de anunciar a palavra na Ásia.

7 And having come to Mysia, they made an attempt to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not let them;
7 E, quando chegaram a Mísia, intentavam ir para Bitínia, mas o Espírito de Jesus não lho permitiu.

8 And going past Mysia, they came down to Troas.
8 E, tendo passado por Mísia, desceram a Trôade.

9 And Paul had a vision in the night; a man of Macedonia came, requesting him, and saying, Come over into Macedonia and give us help.
9 E Paulo teve, de noite, uma visão em que se apresentava um varão da Macedônia e lhe rogava, dizendo: Passa à Macedônia e ajuda-nos!

10 And when he had seen the vision, straight away we made the decision to go into Macedonia, for it seemed certain to us that God had sent us to give the good news to them.
10 E, logo depois desta visão, procuramos partir para a Macedônia, concluindo que o Senhor nos chamava para lhes anunciarmos o evangelho.

11 So, from Troas we went straight by ship to Samothrace and the day after to Neapolis;
11 E, navegando de Trôade, fomos correndo em caminho direito para a Samotrácia e, no dia seguinte, para Neápolis;

12 And from there to Philippi, which is the most important town of Macedonia and a Roman colony: and we were there for some days.
12 e dali, para Filipos, que é a primeira cidade desta parte da Macedônia e é uma colônia; e estivemos alguns dias nesta cidade.

13 And on the Sabbath we went outside the town, by the river, where we had an idea that there would be a place of prayer; and, being seated, we had talk with the women who had come together.
13 No dia de sábado, saímos fora das portas, para a beira do rio, onde julgávamos haver um lugar para oração; e, assentando-nos, falamos às mulheres que ali se ajuntaram.

14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a trader in purple cloth of the town of Thyatira, and a God-fearing woman, gave ear to us: whose heart the Lord made open to give attention to the things which Paul was saying.
14 E uma certa mulher, chamada Lídia, vendedora de púrpura, da cidade de Tiatira, e que servia a Deus, nos ouvia, e o Senhor lhe abriu o coração para que estivesse atenta ao que Paulo dizia.

15 And when she and her family had had baptism, she made a request to us, saying, If it seems to you that I am true to the Lord, come into my house and be my guests. And she made us come.
15 Depois que foi batizada, ela e a sua casa, nos rogou, dizendo: Se haveis julgado que eu seja fiel ao Senhor, entrai em minha casa e ficai ali. E nos constrangeu a isso.

16 And when we were going to the place of prayer, we came across a girl with a spirit which gave knowledge of the future, whose masters made great profit from her power.
16 E aconteceu que, indo nós à oração, nos saiu ao encontro uma jovem que tinha espírito de adivinhação, a qual, adivinhando, dava grande lucro aos seus senhores.

17 She came after Paul and us, crying out and saying, These men are the servants of the Most High God, who are giving you news of the way of salvation.
17 Esta, seguindo a Paulo e a nós, clamava, dizendo: Estes homens, que nos anunciam o caminho da salvação, são servos do Deus Altíssimo.

18 And this she did on a number of days. But Paul was greatly troubled and, turning, said to the spirit, I give you orders in the name of Jesus Christ, to come out of her. And it came out that very hour.
18 E isto fez ela por muitos dias. Mas Paulo, perturbado, voltou-se e disse ao espírito: Em nome de Jesus Cristo, te mando que saias dela. E, na mesma hora, saiu.

19 But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they took Paul and Silas, pulling them into the market-place before the rulers;
19 E, vendo seus senhores que a esperança do seu lucro estava perdida, prenderam Paulo e Silas e os levaram à praça, à presença dos magistrados.

20 And when they had taken them before the authorities, they said, These men, who are Jews, are greatly troubling our town;
20 E, apresentando-os aos magistrados, disseram: Estes homens, sendo judeus, perturbaram a nossa cidade.

21 Teaching rules of living which it is not right for us to have or to keep, being Romans.
21 E nos expõem costumes que nos não é lícito receber nem praticar, visto que somos romanos.

22 And the people made an attack on them all together: and the authorities took their clothing off them, and gave orders for them to be whipped.
22 E a multidão se levantou unida contra eles, e os magistrados, rasgando-lhes as vestes, mandaram açoitá-los com varas.

23 And when they had given them a great number of blows, they put them in prison, giving orders to the keeper of the prison to keep them safely:
23 E, havendo-lhes dado muitos açoites, os lançaram na prisão, mandando ao carcereiro que os guardasse com segurança,

24 And he, having such orders, put them into the inner prison with chains on their feet.
24 o qual, tendo recebido tal ordem, os lançou no cárcere interior e lhes segurou os pés no tronco.

25 But about the middle of the night, Paul and Silas were making prayers and songs to God in the hearing of the prisoners;
25 Perto da meia-noite, Paulo e Silas oravam e cantavam hinos a Deus, e os outros presos os escutavam.

26 And suddenly there was an earth-shock, so that the base of the prison was moved: and all the doors came open, and everyone’s chains came off.
26 E, de repente, sobreveio um tão grande terremoto, que os alicerces do cárcere se moveram, e logo se abriram todas as portas, e foram soltas as prisões de todos.

27 And the keeper, coming out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, took his sword and was about to put himself to death, fearing that the prisoners had got away.
27 Acordando o carcereiro e vendo abertas as portas da prisão, tirou a espada e quis matar-se, cuidando que os presos já tinham fugido.

28 But Paul said in a loud voice, Do yourself no damage, for we are all here.
28 Mas Paulo clamou com grande voz, dizendo: Não te faças nenhum mal, que todos aqui estamos.

29 And he sent for lights and came rushing in and, shaking with fear, went down on his face before Paul and Silas,
29 E, pedindo luz, saltou dentro e, todo trêmulo, se prostrou ante Paulo e Silas.

30 And took them out and said, Sirs, what have I to do to get salvation?
30 E, tirando-os para fora, disse: Senhores, que é necessário que eu faça para me salvar?

31 And they said, Have faith in the Lord Jesus, and you and your family will have salvation.
31 E eles disseram: Crê no Senhor Jesus Cristo e serás salvo, tu e a tua casa.

32 And they gave the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.
32 E lhe pregaram a palavra do Senhor e a todos os que estavam em sua casa.

33 And that same hour of the night, he took them, and when he had given attention to their wounds, he and all his family had baptism straight away.
33 E, tomando-os ele consigo naquela mesma hora da noite, lavou-lhes os vergões; e logo foi batizado, ele e todos os seus.

34 And he took them into his house and gave them food, and he was full of joy, having faith in God with all his family.
34 Então, levando-os a sua casa, lhes pôs a mesa; e, na sua crença em Deus, alegrou-se com toda a sua casa.

35 But when it was day, the authorities sent the police, saying, Let these men go.
35 E, sendo já dia, os magistrados mandaram quadrilheiros, dizendo: Soltai aqueles homens.

36 And the keeper said to Paul, The authorities have given orders to let you go: come out now, and go in peace.
36 O carcereiro anunciou a Paulo estas palavras, dizendo: Os magistrados mandaram que vos soltasse; agora, pois, saí e ide em paz.

37 But Paul said to them, They have given us who are Romans a public whipping without judging us, and have put us in prison. Will they now send us out secretly? no, truly, let them come themselves and take us out.
37 Mas Paulo replicou: Açoitaram-nos publicamente, e, sem sermos condenados, sendo homens romanos, nos lançaram na prisão, e agora, encobertamente, nos lançam fora? Não será assim; mas venham eles mesmos e tirem-nos para fora.

38 And the police gave an account of these words to the authorities, and they were full of fear on hearing that they were Romans;
38 E os quadrilheiros foram dizer aos magistrados estas palavras; e eles temeram, ouvindo que eram romanos.

39 Then they came and made prayers to them, requesting them, when they had taken them out, to go away from the town.
39 Então, vindo, lhes dirigiram súplicas; e, tirando-os para fora, lhes pediram que saíssem da cidade.

40 And they came out of the prison and went to the house of Lydia: and when they had seen the brothers they gave them comfort and went away.
40 E, saindo da prisão, entraram em casa de Lídia, e, vendo os irmãos, os confortaram, e depois partiram.

Acts 17

1 Now when they had gone through Amphipolis and Apollonia they came to Thessalonica, where there was a Synagogue of the Jews:
1 E, passando por Anfípolis e Apolônia, chegaram a Tessalônica, onde havia uma sinagoga de judeus.

2 And Paul, as he generally did, went in to them, and on three Sabbath days had discussions with them from the holy Writings,
2 E Paulo, como tinha por costume, foi ter com eles e, por três sábados, disputou com eles sobre as Escrituras,

3 Saying to them clearly and openly that Christ had to be put to death and come back to life again; and that this Jesus, whom, he said, I am preaching to you, is the Christ.
3 expondo e demonstrando que convinha que o Cristo padecesse e ressuscitasse dos mortos. E este Jesus, que vos anuncio, dizia ele, é o Cristo.

4 And some of them had faith, and were joined to Paul and Silas; and a number of the God-fearing Greeks, and some of the chief women.
4 E alguns deles creram e ajuntaram-se com Paulo e Silas; e também uma grande multidão de gregos religiosos e não poucas mulheres distintas.

5 But the Jews, being moved with envy, took with them certain low persons from among the common people, and getting together a great number of people, made an outcry in the town, attacking the house of Jason with the purpose of taking them out to the people.
5 Mas os judeus desobedientes, movidos de inveja, tomaram consigo alguns homens perversos dentre os vadios, e, ajuntando o povo, alvoroçaram a cidade, e, assaltando a casa de Jasom, procuravam tirá-los para junto do povo.

6 And when they were not able to get them, they took Jason and some of the brothers by force before the rulers of the town, crying, These men, who have made trouble all over the world have now come here;
6 Porém, não os achando, trouxeram Jasom e alguns irmãos à presença dos magistrados da cidade, clamando: Estes que têm alvoroçado o mundo chegaram também aqui,

7 Whom Jason has taken into his house: and they are acting against the orders of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.
7 os quais Jasom recolheu. Todos estes procedem contra os decretos de César, dizendo que há outro rei, Jesus.

8 And hearing these things the people and the rulers of the town were troubled.
8 E alvoroçaram a multidão e os principais da cidade, que ouviram estas coisas.

9 And having made Jason and the others give an undertaking to keep the peace, they let them go.
9 Tendo, porém, recebido satisfação de Jasom e dos demais, os soltaram.

10 And the brothers straight away sent Paul and Silas away by night to Beroea: and they, when they came there, went to the Synagogue of the Jews.
10 E logo os irmãos enviaram de noite Paulo e Silas a Beréia; e eles, chegando lá, foram à sinagoga dos judeus.

11 Now these were more noble than the Jews of Thessalonica, for they gave serious attention to the word, searching in the holy Writings every day, to see if these things were so.
11 Ora, estes foram mais nobres do que os que estavam em Tessalônica, porque de bom grado receberam a palavra, examinando cada dia nas Escrituras se estas coisas eram assim.

12 And a number of them had faith, and no small number of the Greek women of high position and of the men.
12 De sorte que creram muitos deles, e também mulheres gregas da classe nobre, e não poucos varões.

13 But when the Jews of Thessalonica had news that Paul was preaching the word at Beroea, they came there, troubling the people and working them up.
13 Mas, logo que os judeus de Tessalônica souberam que a palavra de Deus também era anunciada por Paulo em Beréia, foram lá e excitaram as multidões.

14 So the brothers sent Paul straight away to the sea: but Silas and Timothy kept there still.
14 No mesmo instante, os irmãos mandaram a Paulo que fosse até ao mar, mas Silas e Timóteo ficaram ali.

15 But those who went with Paul took him as far as Athens, and then went away, with orders from him to Silas and Timothy to come to him quickly.
15 E os que acompanhavam Paulo o levaram até Atenas e, recebendo ordem para que Silas e Timóteo fossem ter com ele o mais depressa possível, partiram.

16 Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was troubled, for he saw all the town full of images of the gods.
16 E, enquanto Paulo os esperava em Atenas, o seu espírito se comovia em si mesmo, vendo a cidade tão entregue à idolatria.

17 So he had discussions in the Synagogue with the Jews and God-fearing Gentiles, and every day in the market-place with those who were there.
17 De sorte que disputava na sinagoga com os judeus e religiosos e, todos os dias, na praça, com os que se apresentavam.

18 And some of those who were supporters of the theories of the Epicureans and the Stoics, had a meeting with him. And some said, What is this talker of foolish words saying? And others, He seems to be a preacher of strange gods: because he was preaching of Jesus and his coming back from the dead.
18 E alguns dos filósofos epicureus e estóicos contendiam com ele. Uns diziam: Que quer dizer este paroleiro? E outros: Parece que é pregador de deuses estranhos. Porque lhes anunciava a Jesus e a ressurreição.

19 And they took him to Mars’ Hill, saying, Will you make clear to us what is this new teaching of yours?
19 E, tomando-o, o levaram ao Areópago, dizendo: Poderemos nós saber que nova doutrina é essa de que falas?

20 For you seem to us to say strange things, and we have a desire to get the sense of them.
20 Pois coisas estranhas nos trazes aos ouvidos; queremos, pois, saber o que vem a ser isso.

21 (Now all the Athenians and the men from other lands who come there were giving all their time to talking or hearing of anything new.)
21 (Pois todos os atenienses e estrangeiros residentes de nenhuma outra coisa se ocupavam senão de dizer e ouvir alguma novidade.)

22 And Paul got to his feet on Mars’ Hill and said, O men of Athens, I see that you are overmuch given to fear of the gods.
22 E, estando Paulo no meio do Areópago, disse: Varões atenienses, em tudo vos vejo um tanto supersticiosos;

23 For when I came by, I was looking at the things to which you give worship, and I saw an altar with this writing on it, TO THE GOD OF WHOM THERE IS NO KNOWLEDGE. Now, what you, without knowledge, give worship to, I make clear to you.
23 porque, passando eu e vendo os vossos santuários, achei também um altar em que estava escrito: AO DEUS DESCONHECIDO. Esse, pois, que vós honrais não o conhecendo é o que eu vos anuncio.

24 The God who made the earth and everything in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, is not housed in buildings made with hands;
24 O Deus que fez o mundo e tudo que nele há, sendo Senhor do céu e da terra, não habita em templos feitos por mãos de homens.

25 And he is not dependent on the work of men’s hands, as if he had need of anything, for he himself gives to all life and breath and all things;
25 Nem tampouco é servido por mãos de homens, como que necessitando de alguma coisa; pois ele mesmo é quem dá a todos a vida, a respiração e todas as coisas;

26 And he has made of one blood all the nations of men living on all the face of the earth, ordering their times and the limits of their lands,
26 e de um só fez toda a geração dos homens para habitar sobre toda a face da terra, determinando os tempos já dantes ordenados e os limites da sua habitação,

27 So that they might make search for God, in order, if possible, to get knowledge of him and make discovery of him, though he is not far from every one of us:
27 para que buscassem ao Senhor, se, porventura, tateando, o pudessem achar, ainda que não está longe de cada um de nós;

28 For in him we have life and motion and existence; as certain of your verse writers have said, For we are his offspring.
28 porque nele vivemos, e nos movemos, e existimos, como também alguns dos vossos poetas disseram: Pois somos também sua geração.

29 If then we are the offspring of God, it is not right for us to have the idea that God is like gold or silver or stone, formed by the art or design of man.
29 Sendo nós, pois, geração de Deus, não havemos de cuidar que a divindade seja semelhante ao ouro, ou à prata, ou à pedra esculpida por artifício e imaginação dos homens.

30 Those times when men had no knowledge were overlooked by God; but now he gives orders to all men in every place to undergo a change of heart:
30 Mas Deus, não tendo em conta os tempos da ignorância, anuncia agora a todos os homens, em todo lugar, que se arrependam,

31 Because a day has been fixed in which all the world will be judged in righteousness by the man who has been marked out by him for this work; of which he has given a sign to all men by giving him back from the dead.
31 porquanto tem determinado um dia em que com justiça há de julgar o mundo, por meio do varão que destinou; e disso deu certeza a todos, ressuscitando-o dos mortos.

32 Now on hearing about the coming back from death, some of them made sport of it, but others said, Let us go more fully into this another time.
32 E, como ouviram falar da ressurreição dos mortos, uns escarneciam, e outros diziam: Acerca disso te ouviremos outra vez.

33 And so Paul went away from among them.
33 E assim Paulo saiu do meio deles.

34 But some men gave him their support: among whom was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.
34 Todavia, chegando alguns varões a ele, creram: entre os quais estava Dionísio, o areopagita, e uma mulher por nome Dâmaris, e, com eles, outros.

Acts 18

1 After these things, he went away from Athens, and came to Corinth.
1 Depois disto, partiu Paulo de Atenas e chegou a Corinto.

2 And there he came across a certain Jew named Aquila, a man of Pontus by birth, who not long before had come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had given orders that all Jews were to go away from Rome: and he came to them;
2 E, achando um certo judeu por nome Áqüila, natural do Ponto, que havia pouco tinha vindo da Itália, e Priscila, sua mulher (pois Cláudio tinha mandado que todos os judeus saíssem de Roma), se ajuntou com eles,

3 And because he was of the same trade, he was living with them, and they did their work together; for by trade they were tent-makers.
3 e, como era do mesmo ofício, ficou com eles, e trabalhava; pois tinham por ofício fazer tendas.

4 And every Sabbath he had discussions in the Synagogue, turning Jews and Greeks to the faith.
4 E todos os sábados disputava na sinagoga e convencia a judeus e gregos.

5 And when Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul was completely given up to the word, preaching to the Jews that the Christ was Jesus.
5 Quando Silas e Timóteo desceram da Macedônia, foi Paulo impulsionado pela palavra, testificando aos judeus que Jesus era o Cristo.

6 And when they put themselves against him, and said evil words, he said, shaking his clothing, Your blood be on your heads, I am clean: from now I will go to the Gentiles.
6 Mas, resistindo e blasfemando eles, sacudiu as vestes e disse-lhes: O vosso sangue seja sobre a vossa cabeça; eu estou limpo e, desde agora, parto para os gentios.

7 And moving from there, he went into the house of a man named Titus Justus, a God-fearing man, whose house was very near the Synagogue.
7 E, saindo dali, entrou em casa de um homem chamado Tito Justo, que servia a Deus e cuja casa estava junto da sinagoga.

8 And Crispus, the ruler of the Synagogue, with all his family, had faith in the Lord; and a great number of the people of Corinth, hearing the word, had faith and were given baptism.
8 E Crispo, principal da sinagoga, creu no Senhor com toda a sua casa; também muitos dos coríntios, ouvindo-o, creram e foram batizados.

9 And the Lord said to Paul in the night, in a vision, Have no fear and go on preaching:
9 E disse o Senhor, em visão, a Paulo: Não temas, mas fala e não te cales;

10 For I am with you, and no one will make an attack on you to do you damage: for I have a number of people in this town.
10 porque eu sou contigo, e ninguém lançará mão de ti para te fazer mal, pois tenho muito povo nesta cidade.

11 And he was there for a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
11 E ficou ali um ano e seis meses, ensinando entre eles a palavra de Deus.

12 But when Gallio was ruler of Achaia, all the Jews together made an attack on Paul, and took him to the judge’s seat,
12 Mas, sendo Gálio procônsul da Acaia, levantaram-se os judeus concordemente contra Paulo e o levaram ao tribunal,

13 Saying, This man is teaching the people to give worship to God in a way which is against the law.
13 dizendo: Este persuade os homens a servir a Deus contra a lei.

14 But when Paul was about to say something, Gallio said to the Jews, If this was anything to do with wrongdoing or crime, there would be a reason for me to give you a hearing:
14 E, querendo Paulo abrir a boca, disse Gálio aos judeus: Se houvesse, ó judeus, algum agravo ou crime enorme, com razão vos sofreria;

15 But if it is a question of words or names or of your law, see to it yourselves; I will not be a judge of such things.
15 mas, se a questão é de palavras, e de nomes, e da lei que entre vós há, vede-o vós mesmos; porque eu não quero ser juiz dessas coisas!

16 And he sent them away from the judge’s seat.
16 E expulsou-os do tribunal.

17 And they all made an attack on Sosthenes, the ruler of the Synagogue, and gave him blows before the judge’s seat; but Gallio gave no attention to these things.
17 Então, todos agarraram Sóstenes, principal da sinagoga, e o feriram diante do tribunal; porém, a Gálio nada destas coisas o incomodava.

18 And Paul, after waiting some days, went away from the brothers and went by ship to Syria, Priscilla and Aquila being with him; and he had had his hair cut off in Cenchrea, for he had taken an oath.
18 E Paulo, ficando ainda ali muitos dias, despediu-se dos irmãos e dali navegou para a Síria e, com ele, Priscila e Áqüila, tendo rapado a cabeça em Cencréia, porque tinha voto.

19 And they came down to Ephesus and he left them there: and he himself went into the Synagogue and had a discussion with the Jews.
19 E chegou a Éfeso e deixou-os ali; mas ele, entrando na sinagoga, disputava com os judeus.

20 And being requested by them to be there for a longer time, he said, No;
20 E, rogando-lhe eles que ficasse por mais algum tempo, não conveio nisso.

21 And went from them, saying, I will come back to you if God lets me; and he took ship from Ephesus.
21 Antes, se despediu deles, dizendo: Querendo Deus, outra vez voltarei a vós. E partiu de Éfeso.

22 And when he had come to land at Caesarea, he went to see the church, and then went down to Antioch.
22 E, chegando a Cesaréia, subiu a Jerusalém e, saudando a igreja, desceu a Antioquia.

23 And having been there for some time, he went through the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order, making the disciples strong in the faith.
23 E, estando ali algum tempo, partiu, passando sucessivamente pela província da Galácia e da Frígia, confirmando a todos os discípulos.

24 Now a certain Jew named Apollos, an Alexandrian by birth, and a man of learning, came to Ephesus; and he had great knowledge of the holy Writings.
24 E chegou a Éfeso um certo judeu chamado Apolo, natural de Alexandria, varão eloqüente e poderoso nas Escrituras.

25 This man had been trained in the way of the Lord; and burning in spirit, he gave himself up to teaching the facts about Jesus, though he had knowledge only of John’s baptism:
25 Este era instruído no caminho do Senhor; e, fervoroso de espírito, falava e ensinava diligentemente as coisas do Senhor, conhecendo somente o batismo de João.

26 And he was preaching in the Synagogue without fear. But Priscilla and Aquila, hearing his words, took him in, and gave him fuller teaching about the way of God.
26 Ele começou a falar ousadamente na sinagoga. Quando o ouviram Priscila e Áqüila, o levaram consigo e lhe declararam mais pontualmente o caminho de Deus.

27 And when he had a desire to go over into Achaia, the brothers gave him help, and sent letters to the disciples requesting them to take him in among them: and when he had come, he gave much help to those who had faith through grace:
27 Querendo ele passar à Acaia, o animaram os irmãos e escreveram aos discípulos que o recebessem; o qual, tendo chegado, aproveitou muito aos que pela graça criam.

28 For he overcame the Jews in public discussion, making clear from the holy Writings that the Christ was Jesus.
28 Porque com grande veemência convencia publicamente os judeus, mostrando pelas Escrituras que Jesus era o Cristo.

Acts 19

1 And it came about that while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul, having gone through the higher country, came to Ephesus, where there were certain disciples:
1 E sucedeu que, enquanto Apolo estava em Corinto, Paulo, tendo passado por todas as regiões superiores, chegou a Éfeso e, achando ali alguns discípulos,

2 And he said to them, Did you get the Holy Spirit when you had faith? And they said to him, No, we have had no knowledge of the Holy Spirit.
2 disse-lhes: Recebestes vós já o Espírito Santo quando crestes? E eles disseram-lhe: Nós nem ainda ouvimos que haja Espírito Santo.

3 And he said, What sort of baptism did you have? And they said, The baptism of John.
3 Perguntou-lhes, então: Em que sois batizados, então? E eles disseram: No batismo de João.

4 And Paul said, John gave a baptism which goes with a change of heart, saying to the people that they were to have faith in him who was coming after him, that is, in Jesus.
4 Mas Paulo disse: Certamente João batizou com o batismo do arrependimento, dizendo ao povo que cresse no que após ele havia de vir, isto é, em Jesus Cristo.

5 And hearing this, they had baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus.
5 E os que ouviram foram batizados em nome do Senhor Jesus.

6 And when Paul had put his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them; and they had the power of talking in tongues, and acting like prophets.
6 E, impondo-lhes Paulo as mãos, veio sobre eles o Espírito Santo; e falavam línguas e profetizavam.

7 And there were about twelve of these men.
7 Estes eram, ao todo, uns doze varões.

8 And he went into the Synagogue, and for three months he was preaching there without fear, reasoning and teaching about the kingdom of God.
8 E, entrando na sinagoga, falou ousadamente por espaço de três meses, disputando e persuadindo-os acerca do Reino de Deus.

9 But because some of the people were hard-hearted and would not give hearing, saying evil words about the Way before the people, he went away from them, and kept the disciples separate, reasoning every day in the school of Tyrannus.
9 Mas, como alguns deles se endurecessem e não obedecessem, falando mal do Caminho perante a multidão, retirou-se deles e separou os discípulos, disputando todos os dias na escola de um certo Tirano.

10 And this went on for two years, so that all those who were living in Asia had knowledge of the word of the Lord, Greeks as well as Jews.
10 E durou isto por espaço de dois anos, de tal maneira que todos os que habitavam na Ásia ouviram a palavra do Senhor Jesus, tanto judeus como gregos.

11 And God did special works of power by the hands of Paul:
11 E Deus, pelas mãos de Paulo, fazia maravilhas extraordinárias,

12 So that bits of linen and clothing from his body were taken to people who were ill, and their diseases went away from them and the evil spirits went out.
12 de sorte que até os lenços e aventais se levavam do seu corpo aos enfermos, e as enfermidades fugiam deles, e os espíritos malignos saíam.

13 But some of the Jews who went from place to place driving out evil spirits, took it on themselves to make use of the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, I give you orders, by Jesus, whom Paul is preaching.
13 E alguns dos exorcistas judeus, ambulantes, tentavam invocar o nome do Senhor Jesus sobre os que tinham espíritos malignos, dizendo: Esconjuro-vos por Jesus, a quem Paulo prega.

14 And there were seven sons of a man named Sceva, a Jew and a chief priest, who did this.
14 Os que faziam isto eram sete filhos de Ceva, judeu, principal dos sacerdotes.

15 And the evil spirit, answering, said to them, I have knowledge of Jesus, and of Paul, but who are you?
15 Respondendo, porém, o espírito maligno, disse: Conheço a Jesus e bem sei quem é Paulo; mas vós, quem sois?

16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was, jumping on them, was stronger than the two of them, and overcame them, so that they went running from that house, wounded and without their clothing.
16 E, saltando neles o homem que tinha o espírito maligno e assenhoreando-se de dois, pôde mais do que eles; de tal maneira que, nus e feridos, fugiram daquela casa.

17 And this came to the ears of all those, Jews and Greeks, who were living at Ephesus; and fear came on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was made great.
17 E foi isto notório a todos os que habitavam em Éfeso, tanto judeus como gregos; e caiu temor sobre todos eles, e o nome do Senhor Jesus era engrandecido.

18 And a number of those who had faith came and made a public statement of their sins and all their acts.
18 Muitos dos que tinham crido vinham, confessando e publicando os seus feitos.

19 And a great number of those who were experts in strange arts took their books and put them on the fire in front of everyone: and when the books were valued they came to fifty thousand bits of silver.
19 Também muitos dos que seguiam artes mágicas trouxeram os seus livros e os queimaram na presença de todos, e, feita a conta do seu preço, acharam que montava a cinqüenta mil peças de prata.

20 So the word of the Lord was increased very greatly and was full of power.
20 Assim, a palavra do Senhor crescia poderosamente e prevalecia.

21 Now after these things were ended, Paul came to a decision that when he had gone through Macedonia and Achaia he would go to Jerusalem, saying, After I have been there, I have a desire to see Rome.
21 E, cumpridas estas coisas, Paulo propôs, em espírito, ir a Jerusalém, passando pela Macedônia e pela Acaia, dizendo: Depois que houver estado ali, importa-me ver também Roma.

22 And having sent two of his helpers, Timothy and Erastus, into Macedonia, he himself went on living in Asia for a time.
22 E, enviando à Macedônia dois daqueles que o serviam, Timóteo e Erasto, ficou ele por algum tempo na Ásia.

23 And about that time a great outcry took place about the Way.
23 Naquele mesmo tempo, houve um não pequeno alvoroço acerca do Caminho.

24 For there was a certain man named Demetrius, a silver-worker, who made silver boxes for the images of Diana, and gave no small profit to the workmen;
24 Porque um certo ourives da prata, por nome Demétrio, que fazia, de prata, nichos de Diana, dava não pouco lucro aos artífices,

25 Whom he got together, with other workmen of the same trade, and said to them, Men, it is clear that from this business we get our wealth.
25 aos quais, havendo-os ajuntado com os oficiais de obras semelhantes, disse: Varões, vós bem sabeis que deste ofício temos a nossa prosperidade;

26 And you see, for it has come to your ears, that not only at Ephesus, but almost all through Asia, this Paul has been teaching numbers of people and turning them away, saying that those are not gods who are made by men’s hands:
26 e bem vedes e ouvis que não só em Éfeso, mas até quase em toda a Ásia, este Paulo tem convencido e afastado uma grande multidão, dizendo que não são deuses os que se fazem com as mãos.

27 And there is danger, not only that our trade may be damaged in the opinion of men, but that the holy place of the great goddess Diana may be no longer honoured, and that she to whom all Asia and the world give worship, will be put down from her high position.
27 Não somente há o perigo de que a nossa profissão caia em descrédito, mas também de que o próprio templo da grande deusa Diana seja estimado em nada, vindo a majestade daquela que toda a Ásia e o mundo veneram a ser destruída.

28 And hearing this, they were very angry, crying out and saying, Great is Diana of Ephesus.
28 Ouvindo isto, encheram-se de ira e clamaram, dizendo: Grande é a Diana dos efésios!

29 And the town was full of noise and trouble, and they all came running into the theatre, having taken by force Gaius and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia who were journeying in company with Paul.
29 E encheu-se de confusão toda a cidade, e unânimes correram ao teatro, arrebatando a Gaio e a Aristarco, macedônios, companheiros de Paulo na viagem.

30 And when Paul was about to go in to the people, the disciples did not let him.
30 E, querendo Paulo apresentar-se ao povo, não lho permitiram os discípulos.

31 And some of the rulers of Asia, being his friends, sent to him, requesting him seriously not to put himself in danger by going into the theatre.
31 Também alguns dos principais da Ásia, que eram seus amigos, lhe rogaram que não se apresentasse no teatro.

32 And some said one thing, and some another: for there was no order in the meeting; and most of them had no idea why they had come together.
32 Uns, pois, clamavam de uma maneira, outros, de outra, porque o ajuntamento era confuso; e os mais deles não sabiam por que causa se tinham ajuntado.

33 Then they took Alexander out from among the people, the Jews putting him forward. And Alexander, making a sign with his hand, was about to make a statement to the people in answer:
33 Então, tiraram Alexandre dentre a multidão, impelindo-o os judeus para diante; e Alexandre, acenando com a mão, queria dar razão disto ao povo.

34 But when they saw that he was a Jew, all of them with one voice went on crying out for about two hours, Great is Diana of Ephesus.
34 Mas, quando conheceram que era judeu, todos unanimemente levantaram a voz, clamando por espaço de quase duas horas: Grande é a Diana dos efésios!

35 And when the chief secretary had got the people quiet, he said, Men of Ephesus, is any man without knowledge that the town of Ephesus is the keeper of the holy place of the great Diana, who was sent down from Jupiter?
35 Então, o escrivão da cidade, tendo apaziguado a multidão, disse: Varões efésios, qual é o homem que não sabe que a cidade dos efésios é a guardadora do templo da grande deusa Diana e da imagem que desceu de Júpiter?

36 So then, because these things may not be doubted, it would be better for you to be quiet, and do nothing unwise.
36 Ora, não podendo isto ser contraditado, convém que vos aplaqueis e nada façais temerariamente;

37 For you have taken these men, who are not doing damage to the holy place or talking against our goddess.
37 porque estes homens que aqui trouxestes nem são sacrílegos nem blasfemam da vossa deusa.

38 If, then, Demetrius and the workmen who are with him have a protest to make against any man, the law is open to them, and there are judges; let them put up a cause at law against one another.
38 Mas, se Demétrio e os artífices que estão com ele têm alguma coisa contra alguém, há audiências e há procônsules; que se acusem uns aos outros.

39 But if any other business is in question, let it be taken up in the regular meeting.
39 Mas, se alguma outra coisa demandais, averiguar-se-á em legítimo ajuntamento.

40 For, truly, we are in danger of being made responsible for this day’s trouble, there being no cause for it: and we are not able to give any reason for this coming together.
40 Na verdade, até corremos perigo de que, por hoje, sejamos acusados de sedição, não havendo causa alguma com que possamos justificar este concurso.

41 And when he had said this, he sent the meeting away.
41 E, tendo dito isto, despediu o ajuntamento.

Acts 20

1 And after the noise had come to an end, Paul, having sent for the disciples and given them comfort, went away from them to Macedonia.
1 Depois que cessou o alvoroço, Paulo chamou a si os discípulos e, abraçando-os, saiu para a Macedônia.

2 And when he had gone through those parts and given them much teaching, he came into Greece.
2 E, havendo andado por aquelas terras e exortando-os com muitas palavras, veio à Grécia.

3 And when he had been there three months, because the Jews had made a secret design against him when he was about to take ship for Syria, he made a decision to go back through Macedonia.
3 Passando ali três meses e sendo-lhe pelos judeus postas ciladas, como tivesse de navegar para a Síria, determinou voltar pela Macedônia.

4 And Sopater of Beroea, the son of Pyrrhus, and Aristarchus and Secundus of Thessalonica, and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy, and Tychicus and Trophimus of Asia, went with him as far as Asia.
4 E acompanhou-o, até à Ásia, Sópatro, de Beréia, e, dos de Tessalônica, Aristarco e Segundo, e Gaio, de Derbe, e Timóteo, e, dos da Ásia, Tíquico e Trófimo.

5 But these had gone before, and were waiting for us at Troas.
5 Estes, indo adiante, nos esperaram em Trôade.

6 And we went away from Philippi by ship after the days of unleavened bread, and came to them at Troas in five days; and we were there for seven days.
6 E, depois dos dias dos pães asmos, navegamos de Filipos e, em cinco dias, fomos ter com eles a Trôade, onde estivemos sete dias.

7 And on the first day of the week, when we had come together for the holy meal, Paul gave them a talk, for it was his purpose to go away on the day after; and he went on talking till after the middle of the night.
7 No primeiro dia da semana, ajuntando-se os discípulos para partir o pão, Paulo, que havia de partir no dia seguinte, falava com eles; e alargou a prática até à meia-noite.

8 And there were a number of lights in the room where we had come together.
8 Havia muitas luzes no cenáculo onde estavam juntos.

9 And a certain young man named Eutychus, who was seated in the window, went into a deep sleep; and while Paul went on talking, being overcome by sleep, he had a fall from the third floor, and was taken up dead.
9 E, estando um certo jovem, por nome Êutico, assentado numa janela, caiu do terceiro andar, tomado de um sono profundo que lhe sobreveio durante o extenso discurso de Paulo; e foi levantado morto.

10 And Paul went down and, falling on him, took him in his arms and said, Do not be troubled, for his life is in him.
10 Paulo, porém, descendo, inclinou-se sobre ele e, abraçando-o, disse: Não vos perturbeis, que a sua alma nele está.

11 And when he had gone up, and had taken the broken bread, he went on talking to them for a long time, even till dawn, and then he went away.
11 E, subindo, e partindo o pão, e comendo, ainda lhes falou largamente até à alvorada; e, assim, partiu.

12 And they took the boy in, living, and were greatly comforted.
12 E levaram vivo o jovem, e ficaram não pouco consolados.

13 But we, going before him by ship, went to Assos with the purpose of taking Paul in there: for so he had given orders, because he himself was coming by land.
13 Nós, porém, subindo ao navio, navegamos até Assôs, onde devíamos receber a Paulo, porque assim o ordenara, indo ele por terra.

14 And when he came up with us at Assos, we took him in the ship and went on to Mitylene.
14 E, logo que se ajuntou conosco em Assôs, o recebemos e fomos a Mitilene.

15 And going from there by sea, we came on the day after opposite Chios, and touching at Samos on the day after that, we came on the third day to Miletus.
15 E, navegando dali, chegamos no dia seguinte defronte de Quios, no outro, aportamos a Samos e, ficando em Trogílio, chegamos no dia seguinte a Mileto.

16 For Paul’s purpose was to go past Ephesus, so that he might not be kept in Asia; for he was going quickly, in order, if possible, to be at Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost.
16 Porque já Paulo tinha determinado passar adiante de Éfeso, para não gastar tempo na Ásia. Apressava-se, pois, para estar, se lhe fosse possível, em Jerusalém no dia de Pentecostes.

17 And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus for the rulers of the church.
17 De Mileto, mandou a Éfeso chamar os anciãos da igreja.

18 And when they had come, he said to them, You yourselves have seen what my life has been like all the time from the day when I first came into Asia,
18 E, logo que chegaram junto dele, disse-lhes: Vós bem sabeis, desde o primeiro dia em que entrei na Ásia, como em todo esse tempo me portei no meio de vós,

19 Doing the Lord’s work without pride, through all the sorrow and troubles which came on me because of the evil designs of the Jews:
19 servindo ao Senhor com toda a humildade e com muitas lágrimas e tentações que, pelas ciladas dos judeus, me sobrevieram;

20 And how I kept back nothing which might be of profit to you, teaching you publicly and privately,
20 como nada, que útil seja, deixei de vos anunciar e ensinar publicamente e pelas casas,

21 Preaching to Jews and to Greeks the need for a turning of the heart to God, and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
21 testificando, tanto aos judeus como aos gregos, a conversão a Deus e a fé em nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo.

22 And now, as you see, I am going to Jerusalem, a prisoner in spirit, having no knowledge of what will come to me there:
22 E, agora, eis que, ligado eu pelo espírito, vou para Jerusalém, não sabendo o que lá me há de acontecer,

23 Only that the Holy Spirit makes clear to me in every town that prison and pains are waiting for me.
23 senão o que o Espírito Santo, de cidade em cidade, me revela, dizendo que me esperam prisões e tribulações.

24 But I put no value on my life, if only at the end of it I may see the work complete which was given to me by the Lord Jesus, to be a witness of the good news of the grace of God.
24 Mas em nada tenho a minha vida por preciosa, contanto que cumpra com alegria a minha carreira e o ministério que recebi do Senhor Jesus, para dar testemunho do evangelho da graça de Deus.

25 And now I am conscious that you, among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom, will not see my face again.
25 E, agora, na verdade, sei que todos vós, por quem passei pregando o Reino de Deus, não vereis mais o meu rosto.

26 And so I say to you this day that I am clean from the blood of all men.
26 Portanto, no dia de hoje, vos protesto que estou limpo do sangue de todos;

27 For I have not kept back from you anything of the purpose of God.
27 porque nunca deixei de vos anunciar todo o conselho de Deus.

28 Give attention to yourselves, and to all the flock which the Holy Spirit has given into your care, to give food to the church of God, for which he gave his blood.
28 Olhai, pois, por vós e por todo o rebanho sobre que o Espírito Santo vos constituiu bispos, para apascentardes a igreja de Deus, que ele resgatou com seu próprio sangue.

29 I am conscious that after I am gone, evil wolves will come in among you, doing damage to the flock;
29 Porque eu sei isto: que, depois da minha partida, entrarão no meio de vós lobos cruéis, que não perdoarão o rebanho.

30 And from among yourselves will come men who will give wrong teaching, turning away the disciples after them.
30 E que, dentre vós mesmos, se levantarão homens que falarão coisas perversas, para atraírem os discípulos após si.

31 So keep watch, having in mind that for three years without resting I was teaching every one of you, day and night, with weeping.
31 Portanto, vigiai, lembrando-vos de que, durante três anos, não cessei, noite e dia, de admoestar, com lágrimas, a cada um de vós.

32 And now, I give you into the care of God and the word of his grace, which is able to make you strong and to give you your heritage among all the saints.
32 Agora, pois, irmãos, encomendo-vos a Deus e à palavra da sua graça; a ele, que é poderoso para vos edificar e dar herança entre todos os santificados.

33 I have had no desire for any man’s silver or gold or clothing.
33 De ninguém cobicei a prata, nem o ouro, nem a veste.

34 You yourselves have seen that with these hands I got what was necessary for me and those who were with me.
34 Vós mesmos sabeis que, para o que me era necessário, a mim e aos que estão comigo, estas mãos me serviram.

35 In all things I was an example to you of how, in your lives, you are to give help to the feeble, and keep in memory the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, There is a greater blessing in giving than in getting.
35 Tenho-vos mostrado em tudo que, trabalhando assim, é necessário auxiliar os enfermos e recordar as palavras do Senhor Jesus, que disse: Mais bem-aventurada coisa é dar do que receber.

36 And having said these words, he went down on his knees in prayer with them all.
36 E, havendo dito isto, pôs-se de joelhos e orou com todos eles.

37 And they were all weeping, falling on Paul’s neck and kissing him,
37 E levantou-se um grande pranto entre todos e, lançando-se ao pescoço de Paulo, o beijavam,

38 Being sad most of all because he had said that they would not see his face again. And so they went with him to the ship.
38 entristecendo-se muito, principalmente pela palavra que dissera, que não veriam mais o seu rosto. E acompanharam-no até ao navio.

Acts 21

1 And after parting from them, we put out to sea and came straight to Cos, and the day after to Rhodes, and from there to Patara:
1 E aconteceu que, separando-nos deles, navegamos e fomos correndo caminho direito e chegamos a Cós e, no dia seguinte, a Rodes, de onde passamos a Pátara.

2 And as there was a ship going to Phoenicia, we went in it.
2 Achando um navio que ia para a Fenícia, embarcamos nele e partimos.

3 And when we had come in view of Cyprus, going past it on our left, we went on to Syria, and came to land at Tyre: for there the goods which were in the ship had to be taken out.
3 E, indo já à vista de Chipre, deixando-a à esquerda, navegamos para a Síria e chegamos a Tiro; porque o navio havia de ser descarregado ali.

4 And meeting the disciples we were there for seven days: and they gave Paul orders through the Spirit not to go up to Jerusalem.
4 E, achando discípulos, ficamos ali sete dias; e eles, pelo Espírito, diziam a Paulo que não subisse a Jerusalém.

5 And when these days came to an end, we went on our journey; and they all, with their wives and children, came with us on our way till we were out of the town: and after going on our knees in prayer by the sea,
5 E, havendo passado ali aqueles dias, saímos e seguimos nosso caminho, acompanhando-nos todos, cada um com sua mulher e filhos até fora da cidade; e, postos de joelhos na praia, oramos.

6 We said our last words to one another, and got into the ship, and they went back to their houses.
6 E, saudando-nos uns aos outros, subimos ao navio; e eles voltaram para casa.

7 And journeying by ship from Tyre we came to Ptolemais; and there we had talk with the brothers and were with them for one day.
7 E nós, concluída a navegação de Tiro, viemos a Ptolemaida; e, havendo saudado os irmãos, ficamos com eles um dia.

8 And on the day after, we went away and came to Caesarea, where we were guests in the house of Philip, the preacher, who was one of the seven.
8 No dia seguinte, partindo dali Paulo e nós que com ele estávamos, chegamos a Cesaréia; e, entrando em casa de Filipe, o evangelista, que era um dos sete, ficamos com ele.

9 And he had four daughters, virgins, who were prophets.
9 Tinha este quatro filhas donzelas, que profetizavam.

10 And while we were waiting there for some days, a certain prophet, named Agabus, came down from Judaea.
10 E, demorando-nos ali por muitos dias, chegou da Judéia um profeta, por nome Ágabo;

11 And he came to us, and took the band of Paul’s clothing, and putting it round his feet and hands, said, The Holy Spirit says these words, So will the Jews do to the man who is the owner of this band, and they will give him up into the hands of the Gentiles.
11 e, vindo ter conosco, tomou a cinta de Paulo e, ligando-se os seus próprios pés e mãos, disse: Isto diz o Espírito Santo: Assim ligarão os judeus, em Jerusalém, o varão de quem é esta cinta e o entregarão nas mãos dos gentios.

12 And hearing these things, we and those who were living in that place made request to him not to go to Jerusalem.
12 E, ouvindo nós isto, rogamos-lhe, tanto nós como os que eram daquele lugar, que não subisse a Jerusalém.

13 Then Paul said, What are you doing, weeping and wounding my heart? for I am ready, not only to be a prisoner, but to be put to death at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.
13 Mas Paulo respondeu: Que fazeis vós, chorando e magoando-me o coração? Porque eu estou pronto não só a ser ligado, mas ainda a morrer em Jerusalém pelo nome do Senhor Jesus.

14 And as he might not be moved we did no more, saying, Let the purpose of God be done.
14 E, como não podíamos convencê-lo, nos aquietamos, dizendo: Faça-se a vontade do Senhor!

15 And after these days we got ready and went up to Jerusalem.
15 Depois daqueles dias, havendo feito os nossos preparativos, subimos a Jerusalém.

16 And some of the disciples from Caesarea went with us, taking a certain Mnason of Cyprus, one of the early disciples, in whose house we were to be living.
16 E foram também conosco alguns discípulos de Cesaréia, levando consigo um certo Mnasom, natural de Chipre, discípulo antigo, com quem havíamos de hospedar-nos.

17 And when we came to Jerusalem, the brothers were pleased to see us.
17 E, logo que chegamos a Jerusalém, os irmãos nos receberam de muito boa vontade.

18 And on the day after, Paul went with us to James, and all the rulers of the church were present.
18 No dia seguinte, Paulo entrou conosco em casa de Tiago, e todos os anciãos vieram ali.

19 And when he had said how glad he was to see them, he gave them a detailed account of the things which God had done through his work among the Gentiles.
19 E, havendo-os saudado, contou-lhes minuciosamente o que por seu ministério Deus fizera entre os gentios.

20 And hearing it, they gave praise to God; and they said to him, You see, brother, what thousands there are among the Jews, who have the faith; and they all have a great respect for the law:
20 E, ouvindo-o eles, glorificaram ao Senhor e disseram-lhe: Bem vês, irmão, quantos milhares de judeus há que crêem, e todos são zelosos da lei.

21 And they have had news of you, how you have been teaching all the Jews among the Gentiles to give up the law of Moses, and not to give circumcision to their children, and not to keep the old rules.
21 E já acerca de ti foram informados de que ensinas todos os judeus que estão entre os gentios a apartarem-se de Moisés, dizendo que não devem circuncidar os filhos, nem andar segundo o costume da lei.

22 What then is the position? They will certainly get news that you have come.
22 Que faremos, pois? Em todo o caso é necessário que a multidão se ajunte; porque terão ouvido que já és vindo.

23 Do this, then, which we say to you: We have four men who have taken an oath;
23 Faze, pois, isto que te dizemos: temos quatro varões que fizeram voto.

24 Go with these, and make yourself clean with them, and make the necessary payments for them, so that they may be free from their oath: and everyone will see that the statements made about you are not true, but that you put yourself under rule, and keep the law.
24 Toma estes contigo, e santifica-te com eles, e faze por eles os gastos para que rapem a cabeça, e todos ficarão sabendo que nada há daquilo de que foram informados acerca de ti, mas que também tu mesmo andas guardando a lei.

25 But as to the Gentiles who have the faith, we sent a letter, giving our decision that they were to keep themselves from offerings made to false gods, and from blood, and from the flesh of animals put to death in ways against the law, and from the evil desires of the body.
25 Todavia, quanto aos que crêem dos gentios, já nós havemos escrito e achado por bem que nada disto observem; mas que só se guardem do que se sacrifica aos ídolos, e do sangue, e do sufocado, e da prostituição.

26 Then Paul took the men, and on the day after, making himself clean with them, he went into the Temple, giving out the statement that the days necessary for making them clean were complete, till the offering was made for every one of them.
26 Então, Paulo, tomando consigo aqueles varões, entrou, no dia seguinte, no templo, já santificado com eles, anunciando serem já cumpridos os dias da purificação; e ficou ali até se oferecer em favor de cada um deles a oferta.

27 And when the seven days were almost ended, the Jews from Asia, seeing him in the Temple, got the people together and put their hands on him,
27 Quando os sete dias estavam quase a terminar, os judeus da Ásia, vendo-o no templo, alvoroçaram todo o povo e lançaram mão dele,

28 Crying out, Men of Israel, come to our help: this is the man who is teaching all men everywhere against the people and the law and this place: and in addition, he has taken Greeks into the Temple, and made this holy place unclean.
28 clamando: Varões israelitas, acudi! Este é o homem que por todas as partes ensina a todos, contra o povo, e contra a lei, e contra este lugar; e, demais disto, introduziu também no templo os gregos e profanou este santo lugar.

29 For they had seen him before in the town with Trophimus of Ephesus, and had the idea that Paul had taken him with him into the Temple.
29 Porque tinham visto com ele na cidade a Trófimo, de Éfeso, o qual pensavam que Paulo introduzira no templo.

30 And all the town was moved, and the people came running together and put their hands on Paul, pulling him out of the Temple: and then the doors were shut.
30 E alvoroçou-se toda a cidade, e houve grande concurso de povo; e, pegando de Paulo, o arrastaram para fora do templo, e logo as portas se fecharam.

31 And while they were attempting to put him to death, news came to the chief captain of the band that all Jerusalem was out of control.
31 E, procurando eles matá-lo, chegou ao tribuno da coorte o aviso de que Jerusalém estava toda em confusão.

32 And straight away he took some armed men and went quickly down to them: and the Jews, seeing them, gave no more blows to Paul.
32 Este, tomando logo consigo soldados e centuriões, correu para eles. E, quando viram o tribuno e os soldados, cessaram de ferir a Paulo.

33 Then the chief captain came near and took him, and gave orders for him to be put in chains, questioning them as to who he was and what he had done.
33 Então, aproximando-se o tribuno, o prendeu, e o mandou atar com duas cadeias, e lhe perguntou quem era e o que tinha feito.

34 And some said one thing and some another, among the people: and as he was not able to get a knowledge of the facts because of the noise, he gave orders for Paul to be taken into the army building.
34 E, na multidão, uns clamavam de uma maneira; outros, de outra; mas, como nada podia saber ao certo por causa do alvoroço, mandou conduzi-lo para a fortaleza.

35 And when he came on to the steps, he was lifted up by the armed men, because of the force of the people;
35 E sucedeu que, chegando às escadas, os soldados tiveram de lhe pegar por causa da violência da multidão,

36 For a great mass of people came after them, crying out, Away with him!
36 porque a multidão do povo o seguia, clamando: Mata-o!

37 And when Paul was about to be taken into the building, he said to the chief captain, May I say something to you? And he said, Have you a knowledge of Greek?
37 E, quando iam introduzir Paulo na fortaleza, disse Paulo ao tribuno: É-me permitido dizer-te alguma coisa? E ele disse: Sabes o grego?

38 Are you by chance the Egyptian who, before this, got the people worked up against the government and took four thousand men of the Assassins out into the waste land?
38 Não és tu, porventura, aquele egípcio que antes destes dias fez uma sedição e levou ao deserto quatro mil salteadores?

39 But Paul said, I am a Jew of Tarsus in Cilicia, which is not an unimportant town: I make a request to you to let me say a word to the people.
39 Mas Paulo lhe disse: Na verdade, eu sou um homem judeu, cidadão de Tarso, cidade não pouco célebre na Cilícia; rogo-te, porém, que me permitas falar ao povo.

40 And when he let him do so, Paul, from the steps, made a sign with his hand to the people, and when they were all quiet, he said to them in the Hebrew language,
40 E, havendo-lho permitido, Paulo, pondo-se em pé nas escadas, fez sinal com a mão ao povo; e, feito grande silêncio, falou-lhes em língua hebraica, dizendo:

Acts 22

1 My brothers and fathers, give ear to the story of my life which I now put before you.
1 Varões irmãos e pais, ouvi agora a minha defesa perante vós.

2 And, hearing him talking in the Hebrew language, they became the more quiet, and he said,
2 (E, quando ouviram falar-lhes em língua hebraica, maior silêncio guardaram.) E disse:

3 I am a Jew of Tarsus in Cilicia by birth, but I had my education in this town at the feet of Gamaliel, being trained in the keeping of every detail of the law of our fathers; given up to the cause of God with all my heart, as you are today.
3 Quanto a mim, sou varão judeu, nascido em Tarso da Cilícia, mas criado nesta cidade aos pés de Gamaliel, instruído conforme a verdade da lei de nossos pais, zeloso para com Deus, como todos vós hoje sois.

4 And I made attacks on this Way, even to death, taking men and women and putting them in prison.
4 Persegui este Caminho até à morte, prendendo e metendo em prisões, tanto homens como mulheres,

5 Of which the high priest will be a witness, and all the rulers, from whom I had letters to the brothers; and I went into Damascus, to take those who were there as prisoners to Jerusalem for punishment.
5 como também o sumo sacerdote me é testemunha, e todo o conselho dos anciãos; e, recebendo destes cartas para os irmãos, fui a Damasco, para trazer manietados para Jerusalém aqueles que ali estivessem, a fim de que fossem castigados.

6 And it came about that while I was on my journey, coming near to Damascus, about the middle of the day, suddenly I saw a great light from heaven shining round me.
6 Ora, aconteceu que, indo eu já de caminho e chegando perto de Damasco, quase ao meio-dia, de repente me rodeou uma grande luz do céu.

7 And when I went down on the earth, a voice came to my ears saying to me, Saul, Saul, why are you attacking me so cruelly?
7 E caí por terra e ouvi uma voz que me dizia: Saulo, Saulo, por que me persegues?

8 And I, answering, said, Who are you; Lord? And he said to me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are attacking.
8 E eu respondi: Quem és, Senhor? E disse-me: Eu sou Jesus, o Nazareno, a quem tu persegues.

9 And those who were with me saw the light, but the voice of him who was talking to me came not to their ears.
9 E os que estavam comigo viram, em verdade, a luz, e se atemorizaram muito; mas não ouviram a voz daquele que falava comigo.

10 And I said, What have I to do, Lord? And the Lord said to me, Get up, and go into Damascus; and it will be made clear to you what you have to do.
10 Então, disse eu: Senhor, que farei? E o Senhor disse-me: Levanta-te e vai a Damasco, e ali se te dirá tudo o que te é ordenado fazer.

11 And because I was unable to see because of the glory of that light, those who were with me took me by the hand, and so I came to Damascus.
11 E, como eu não via por causa do esplendor daquela luz, fui levado pela mão dos que estavam comigo e cheguei a Damasco.

12 And one Ananias, a God-fearing man, who kept the law, and of whom all the Jews in that place had a high opinion,
12 E um certo Ananias, varão piedoso conforme a lei, que tinha bom testemunho de todos os judeus que ali moravam,

13 Came to my side and said, Brother Saul, let your eyes be open. And in that very hour I was able to see him.
13 vindo ter comigo e apresentando-se, disse-me: Saulo, irmão, recobra a vista. E naquela mesma hora o vi.

14 And he said, You have been marked out by the God of our fathers to have knowledge of his purpose, and to see the Upright One and to give ear to the words of his mouth.
14 E ele disse: O Deus de nossos pais de antemão te designou para que conheças a sua vontade, e vejas aquele Justo, e ouças a voz da sua boca.

15 For you will be a witness for him to all men of what you have seen and of what has come to your ears.
15 Porque hás de ser sua testemunha para com todos os homens do que tens visto e ouvido.

16 And now, why are you waiting? get up, and have baptism, for the washing away of your sins, giving worship to his name.
16 E, agora, por que te deténs? Levanta-te, e batiza-te, e lava os teus pecados, invocando o nome do Senhor.

17 And it came about that when I had come back to Jerusalem, while I was at prayer in the Temple, my senses became more than naturally clear,
17 E aconteceu que, tornando eu para Jerusalém, quando orava no templo, fui arrebatado para fora de mim.

18 And I saw him saying to me, Go out of Jerusalem straight away because they will not give hearing to your witness about me.
18 E vi aquele que me dizia: Dá-te pressa e sai apressadamente de Jerusalém, porque não receberão o teu testemunho acerca de mim.

19 And I said, Lord, they themselves have knowledge that I went through the Synagogues putting in prison and whipping all those who had faith in you:
19 E eu disse: Senhor, eles bem sabem que eu lançava na prisão e açoitava nas sinagogas os que criam em ti.

20 And when Stephen your witness was put to death, I was there, giving approval, and looking after the clothing of those who put him to death.
20 E, quando o sangue de Estêvão, tua testemunha, se derramava, também eu estava presente, e consentia na sua morte, e guardava as vestes dos que o matavam.

21 And he said to me, Go, for I will send you far away to the Gentiles.
21 E disse-me: Vai, porque hei de enviar-te aos gentios de longe.

22 And they gave him a hearing as far as this word; then with loud voices they said, Away with this man from the earth; it is not right for him to be living.
22 E ouviram-no até esta palavra e levantaram a voz, dizendo: Tira da terra um tal homem, porque não convém que viva!

23 And while they were crying out, and pulling off their clothing, and sending dust into the air,
23 E, clamando eles, e arrojando de si as vestes, e lançando pó para o ar,

24 The chief captain gave orders for him to be taken into the army building, saying that he would put him to the test by whipping, so that he might have knowledge of the reason why they were crying out so violently against him.
24 o tribuno mandou que o levassem para a fortaleza, dizendo que o examinassem com açoites, para saber por que causa assim clamavam contra ele.

25 And when they had put leather bands round him, Paul said to the captain who was present, Is it the law for you to give blows to a man who is a Roman and has not been judged?
25 E, quando o estavam atando com correias, disse Paulo ao centurião que ali estava: É-vos lícito açoitar um romano, sem ser condenado?

26 And hearing this, the man went to the chief captain and gave him an account of it, saying, What are you about to do? for this man is a Roman.
26 E, ouvindo isto, o centurião foi e anunciou ao tribuno, dizendo: Vê o que vais fazer, porque este homem é romano.

27 And the chief captain came to him and said, Give me an answer, are you a Roman? And he said, Yes.
27 E, vindo o tribuno, disse-lhe: Dize-me, és tu romano? E ele disse: Sim.

28 And the chief captain said, I got Roman rights for myself at a great price. And Paul said, But I had them by birth.
28 E respondeu o tribuno: Eu com grande soma de dinheiro alcancei este direito de cidadão. Paulo disse: Mas eu sou-o de nascimento.

29 Then those who were about to put him to the test went away: and the chief captain was in fear, seeing that he was a Roman, and that he had put chains on him.
29 E logo dele se apartaram os que o haviam de examinar; e até o tribuno teve temor, quando soube que era romano, visto que o tinha ligado.

30 But on the day after, desiring to have certain knowledge of what the Jews had to say against him, he made him free, and gave orders for the chief priests and all the Sanhedrin to come together, and he took Paul and put him before them.
30 No dia seguinte, querendo saber ao certo a causa por que era acusado pelos judeus, soltou-o das prisões e mandou vir os principais dos sacerdotes e todo o seu conselho; e, trazendo Paulo, o apresentou diante deles.

Acts 23

1 And Paul, looking fixedly at the Sanhedrin, said, My brothers, my life has been upright before God till this day.
1 E, pondo Paulo os olhos no conselho, disse: Varões irmãos, até ao dia de hoje tenho andado diante de Deus com toda a boa consciência.

2 And the high priest, Ananias, gave orders to those who were near him to give him a blow on the mouth.
2 Mas o sumo sacerdote, Ananias, mandou aos que estavam junto dele que o ferissem na boca.

3 Then Paul said to him, God will give blows to you, you whitewashed wall: are you here to be my judge by law, and by your orders am I given blows against the law?
3 Então, Paulo lhe disse: Deus te ferirá, parede branqueada! Tu estás aqui assentado para julgar-me conforme a lei e, contra a lei, me mandas ferir?

4 And those who were near said, Do you say such words against God’s high priest?
4 E os que ali estavam disseram: Injurias o sumo sacerdote de Deus?

5 And Paul said, Brother, I had no idea that he was the high priest: for it has been said, You may not say evil about the ruler of your people.
5 E Paulo disse: Não sabia, irmãos, que era o sumo sacerdote; porque está escrito: Não dirás mal do príncipe do teu povo.

6 But when Paul saw that half of them were Sadducees and the rest Pharisees, he said in the Sanhedrin, Brothers, I am a Pharisee, and the son of Pharisees: I am here to be judged on the question of the hope of the coming back from the dead.
6 E Paulo, sabendo que uma parte era de saduceus, e outra, de fariseus, clamou no conselho: Varões irmãos, eu sou fariseu, filho de fariseu! No tocante à esperança e ressurreição dos mortos sou julgado!

7 And when he had said this, there was an argument between the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and a division in the meeting.
7 E, havendo dito isto, houve dissensão entre os fariseus e saduceus; e a multidão se dividiu.

8 For the Sadducees say that there is no coming back from the dead, and no angels or spirits: but the Pharisees have belief in all these.
8 Porque os saduceus dizem que não há ressurreição, nem anjo, nem espírito; mas os fariseus reconhecem uma e outra coisa.

9 And there was a great outcry: and some of the scribes on the side of the Pharisees got up and took part in the discussion, saying, We see no evil in this man: what if he has had a revelation from an angel or a spirit?
9 E originou-se um grande clamor; e, levantando-se os escribas da parte dos fariseus, contendiam, dizendo: Nenhum mal achamos neste homem, e se algum espírito ou anjo lhe falou, não resistamos a Deus.

10 And when the argument became very violent, the chief captain, fearing that Paul would be pulled in two by them, gave orders to the armed men to take him by force from among them, and take him into the army building.
10 E, havendo grande dissensão, o tribuno, temendo que Paulo fosse despedaçado por eles, mandou descer a soldadesca, para que o tirassem do meio deles e o levassem para a fortaleza.

11 And the night after, the Lord came to his side and said, Be of good heart, for as you have been witnessing for me in Jerusalem, so will you be my witness in Rome.
11 E, na noite seguinte, apresentando-se-lhe o Senhor, disse: Paulo, tem ânimo! Porque, como de mim testificaste em Jerusalém, assim importa que testifiques também em Roma.

12 And when it was day, the Jews came together and put themselves under an oath that they would take no food or drink till they had put Paul to death.
12 Quando já era dia, alguns dos judeus fizeram uma conspiração e juraram dizendo que não comeriam nem beberiam enquanto não matassem a Paulo.

13 And more than forty of them took this oath.
13 E eram mais de quarenta os que fizeram esta conjuração.

14 And they came to the chief priests and the rulers and said, We have taken a great oath to take no food till we have put Paul to death
14 Estes foram ter com os principais dos sacerdotes e anciãos e disseram: Conjuramo-nos, sob pena de maldição, a nada provarmos até que matemos a Paulo.

15 So now, will you and the Sanhedrin make a request to the military authorities to have him sent down to you, as if you were desiring to go into the business in greater detail; and we, before ever he gets to you, will be waiting to put him to death.
15 Agora, pois, vós, com o conselho, rogai ao tribuno que vo-lo traga amanhã, como querendo saber mais alguma coisa de seus negócios, e, antes que chegue, estaremos prontos para o matar.

16 But Paul’s sister’s son had word of their design, and he came into the army building and gave news of it to Paul.
16 E o filho da irmã de Paulo, tendo ouvido acerca desta cilada, foi, e entrou na fortaleza, e o anunciou a Paulo.

17 And Paul sent for a captain and said, Take this young man to your chief, for he has news for him.
17 E Paulo, chamando a si um dos centuriões, disse: Leva este jovem ao tribuno, porque tem alguma coisa que lhe comunicar.

18 So he took him to the chief captain and said, Paul, the prisoner, made a request to me to take this young man to you, for he has something to say to you.
18 Tomando-o ele, pois, o levou ao tribuno e disse: O preso Paulo, chamando-me a si, me rogou que te trouxesse este jovem, que tem alguma coisa que dizer-te.

19 And the chief took him by the hand and, going on one side, said to him privately, What is it you have to say to me?
19 E o tribuno, tomando-o pela mão e pondo-se à parte, perguntou-lhe em particular: Que tens que me contar?

20 And he said, The Jews are in agreement together to make a request to you for Paul to be taken, on the day after this, into the Sanhedrin, to be questioned in greater detail.
20 E disse ele: Os judeus se concertaram rogar-te que amanhã leves Paulo ao conselho como tendo de inquirir dele mais alguma coisa ao certo.

21 But do not give way to them, for more than forty of them are waiting for him, having taken an oath not to take food or drink till they have put him to death: and now they are ready, waiting for your order.
21 Mas tu não os creias, porque mais de quarenta homens dentre eles lhe andam armando ciladas, os quais se obrigaram, sob pena de maldição, a não comerem nem beberem até que o tenham morto; e já estão apercebidos, esperando de ti promessa.

22 So the chief captain let the young man go, saying to him, Do not say to anyone that you have given me word of these things.
22 Então, o tribuno despediu o jovem, mandando-lhe que a ninguém dissesse que lhe havia contado aquilo.

23 And he sent for two captains and said, Make ready two hundred men, with seventy horsemen and two hundred spearmen, to go to Caesarea, at the third hour of the night:
23 E, chamando dois centuriões, lhes disse: Aprontai para as três horas da noite duzentos soldados, e setenta de cavalo, e duzentos lanceiros para irem até Cesaréia;

24 And get beasts so that they may put Paul on them, and take him safely to Felix, the ruler.
24 e aparelhai cavalgaduras, para que, pondo nelas a Paulo, o levem salvo ao governador Félix.

25 And he sent a letter in these words:
25 E escreveu uma carta que continha isto:

26 Claudius Lysias, to the most noble ruler, Felix, peace be with you.
26 Cláudio Lísias a Félix, potentíssimo governador, saúde.

27 This man was taken by the Jews, and was about to be put to death by them, when I came on them with the army and took him out of danger, having knowledge that he was a Roman.
27 Este homem foi preso pelos judeus; e, estando já a ponto de ser morto por eles, sobrevim eu com a soldadesca e o livrei, informado de que era romano.

28 And, desiring to get at the reason for their attack on him, I took him down to their Sanhedrin:
28 Querendo saber a causa por que o acusavam, o levei ao seu conselho.

29 Then it became clear to me that it was a question of their law, and that nothing was said against him which might be a reason for prison or death.
29 E achei que o acusavam de algumas questões da sua lei, mas que nenhum crime havia nele digno de morte ou de prisão.

30 And when news was given to me that a secret design was being made against the man, I sent him straight away to you, giving orders to those who are against him to make their statements before you.
30 E, sendo-me notificado que os judeus haviam de armar ciladas a esse homem, logo to enviei, mandando também aos acusadores que perante ti digam o que tiverem contra ele. Passa bem.

31 So the armed men, as they were ordered, took Paul and came by night to Antipatris.
31 Tomando, pois, os soldados a Paulo, como lhes fora mandado, o trouxeram de noite a Antipátride.

32 But on the day after, they sent the horsemen on with him, and went back to their place:
32 No dia seguinte, deixando aos de cavalo irem com ele, tornaram à fortaleza;

33 And they, when they came to Caesarea, gave the letter to the ruler, and took Paul before him.
33 os quais, logo que chegaram a Cesaréia e entregaram a carta ao governador, lhe apresentaram Paulo.

34 And after reading it, he said, What part of the country do you come from? And, hearing that he was from Cilicia,
34 E o governador, lida a carta, perguntou de que província era; e, sabendo que era da Cilícia,

35 I will give hearing to your cause, he said, when those who are against you have come. And he gave orders for him to be kept in Herod’s Praetorium.
35 disse: Ouvir-te-ei quando também aqui vierem os teus acusadores. E mandou que o guardassem no pretório de Herodes.

Acts 24

1 And after five days, the high priest, Ananias, came with certain of the rulers, and an expert talker, one Tertullus; and they made a statement to Felix against Paul.
1 Cinco dias depois, o sumo sacerdote, Ananias, desceu com os anciãos e um certo Tértulo, orador, os quais compareceram perante o governador contra Paulo.

2 And when he had been sent for, Tertullus, starting his statement, said, Because by you we are living in peace, and through your wisdom wrongs are put right for this nation,
2 E, sendo chamado, Tértulo começou a acusá-lo, dizendo:

3 In all things and in all places we are conscious of our great debt to you, most noble Felix.
3 Visto como, por ti, temos tanta paz, e, por tua prudência, se fazem a este povo muitos e louváveis serviços, sempre e em todo lugar, ó potentíssimo Félix, com todo o agradecimento o queremos reconhecer.

4 But, so that I may not make you tired, I make a request to you of your mercy, to give hearing to a short statement.
4 Mas, para que te não detenha muito, rogo-te que, conforme a tua eqüidade, nos ouças por pouco tempo.

5 For this man, in our opinion, is a cause of trouble, a maker of attacks on the government among Jews through all the empire, and a chief mover in the society of the Nazarenes:
5 Temos achado que este homem é uma peste e promotor de sedições entre todos os judeus, por todo o mundo, e o principal defensor da seita dos nazarenos;

6 Who, in addition, was attempting to make the Temple unclean: whom we took,
6 o qual intentou também profanar o templo; e, por isso, o prendemos e, conforme a nossa lei, o quisemos julgar.

7 But the commander Lysias came by and with great violence took him out of our hands,
7 Mas, sobrevindo o tribuno Lísias, no-lo tirou dentre as mãos, com grande violência,

8 And from whom you will be able, by questioning him yourself, to get knowledge of all the things which we say against him.
8 mandando aos seus acusadores que viessem a ti; e dele tu mesmo, examinando-o, poderás entender tudo o de que o acusamos.

9 And the Jews were in agreement with his statement, saying that these things were so.
9 E também os judeus o acusavam, dizendo serem estas coisas assim.

10 Then when the ruler had given him a sign to make his answer, Paul said, Because I have knowledge that you have been a judge over this nation for a number of years, I am glad to make my answer:
10 Paulo, porém, fazendo-lhe o governador sinal que falasse, respondeu: Porque sei que já vai para muitos anos que desta nação és juiz, com tanto melhor ânimo respondo por mim.

11 Seeing that you are able to make certain of the fact that it is not more than twelve days from the time when I came up to Jerusalem for worship;
11 Pois bem podes saber que não há mais de doze dias que subi a Jerusalém a adorar;

12 And they have not seen me in argument with any man in the Temple, or working up the feelings of the people, in the Synagogues or in the town:
12 e não me acharam no templo falando com alguém, nem amotinando o povo nas sinagogas, nem na cidade;

13 And they are not able to give facts in support of the things which they say against me now.
13 nem tampouco podem provar as coisas de que agora me acusam.

14 But this I will say openly to you, that I do give worship to the God of our fathers after that Way, which to them is not the true religion: but I have belief in all the things which are in the law and in the books of the prophets:
14 Mas confesso-te que, conforme aquele Caminho, a que chamam seita, assim sirvo ao Deus de nossos pais, crendo tudo quanto está escrito na Lei e nos Profetas.

15 Hoping in God for that which they themselves are looking for, that there will be a coming back from the dead for upright men and wrongdoers.
15 Tendo esperança em Deus, como estes mesmos também esperam, de que há de haver ressurreição de mortos, tanto dos justos como dos injustos.

16 And in this, I do my best at all times to have no reason for shame before God or men.
16 E, por isso, procuro sempre ter uma consciência sem ofensa, tanto para com Deus como para com os homens.

17 Now after a number of years I came to give help and offerings to my nation:
17 Ora, muitos anos depois, vim trazer à minha nação esmolas e ofertas.

18 And having been made clean, I was in the Temple, but not with a great number of people, and not with noise: but there were certain Jews from Asia,
18 Nisto, me acharam já santificado no templo, não em ajuntamentos, nem com alvoroços, uns certos judeus da Ásia,

19 And it would have been better if they had come here to make a statement, if they have anything against me.
19 os quais convinha que estivessem presentes perante ti e me acusassem, se alguma coisa contra mim tivessem.

20 Or let these men here present say what wrongdoing was seen in me when I was before the Sanhedrin,
20 Ou digam estes mesmos se acharam em mim alguma iniqüidade, quando compareci perante o conselho,

21 But only this one thing which I said among them in a loud voice, I am this day being judged on the question of the coming back from the dead.
21 a não ser estas palavras que, estando entre eles, clamei: hoje, sou julgado por vós acerca da ressurreição dos mortos!

22 But Felix, who had a more detailed knowledge of the Way, put them off, saying, When Lysias, the chief captain, comes down, I will give attention to your business.
22 Então, Félix, havendo ouvido estas coisas, lhes pôs dilação, dizendo: Havendo-me informado melhor deste Caminho, quando o tribuno Lísias tiver descido, então tomarei inteiro conhecimento dos vossos negócios.

23 And he gave orders to the captain to keep Paul under his control, and to let him have everything he had need of; and not to keep his friends from coming to see him.
23 E mandou ao centurião que o guardassem em prisão, tratando-o com brandura, e que a ninguém dos seus proibisse servi-lo ou vir ter com ele.

24 But after some days, Felix came with Drusilla his wife, who was of the Jews by birth, and sent for Paul, and gave hearing to him about faith in Christ Jesus.
24 Alguns dias depois, vindo Félix com sua mulher Drusila, que era judia, mandou chamar a Paulo e ouviu-o acerca da fé em Cristo.

25 And while he was talking about righteousness and self-control and the judging which was to come, Felix had great fear and said, Go away for the present, and when the right time comes I will send for you.
25 E, tratando ele da justiça, e da temperança, e do Juízo vindouro, Félix, espavorido, respondeu: Por agora, vai-te, e, em tendo oportunidade, te chamarei;

26 For he was hoping that Paul would give him money: so he sent for him more frequently and had talk with him.
26 esperando, ao mesmo tempo, que Paulo lhe desse dinheiro, para que o soltasse; pelo que também, muitas vezes, o mandava chamar e falava com ele.

27 But after two years Porcius Festus took the place of Felix, who, desiring to have the approval of the Jews, kept Paul in chains.
27 Mas, passados dois anos, Félix teve por sucessor a Pórcio Festo; e, querendo Félix comprazer aos judeus, deixou a Paulo preso.

Acts 25

1 So Festus, having come into that part of the country which was under his rule, after three days went up to Jerusalem from Caesarea.
1 Entrando, pois, Festo na província, subiu dali a três dias de Cesaréia a Jerusalém.

2 And the chief priests and the chief men of the Jews made statements against Paul,
2 E o sumo sacerdote e os principais dos judeus compareceram perante ele contra Paulo e lhe rogaram,

3 Requesting Festus to give effect to their design against him, and send him to Jerusalem, when they would be waiting to put him to death on the way.
3 pedindo como favor, contra ele, que o fizesse vir a Jerusalém, armando ciladas para o matarem no caminho.

4 But Festus, in answer, said that Paul was being kept in prison at Caesarea, and that in a short time he himself was going there.
4 Mas Festo respondeu que Paulo estava guardado em Cesaréia e que ele brevemente partiria para lá.

5 So, he said, let those who have authority among you go with me, and if there is any wrong in the man, let them make a statement against him.
5 Os que, pois, disse, dentre vós têm poder desçam comigo e, se neste varão houver algum crime, acusem-no.

6 And when he had been with them not more than eight or ten days, he went down to Caesarea; and on the day after, he took his place on the judge’s seat, and sent for Paul.
6 E, não se demorando entre eles mais de dez dias, desceu a Cesaréia; e, no dia seguinte, assentando-se no tribunal, mandou que trouxessem Paulo.

7 And when he came, the Jews who had come down from Jerusalem came round him, and made all sorts of serious statements against him, which were not supported by the facts.
7 Chegando ele, o rodearam os judeus que haviam descido de Jerusalém, trazendo contra Paulo muitas e graves acusações, que não podiam provar.

8 Then Paul, in his answer to them, said, I have done no wrong against the law of the Jews, or against the Temple, or against Caesar.
8 Mas ele, em sua defesa, disse: Eu não pequei em coisa alguma contra a lei dos judeus, nem contra o templo, nem contra César.

9 But Festus, desiring to get the approval of the Jews, said to Paul, Will you go up to Jerusalem, and be judged before me there in connection with these things?
9 Todavia, Festo, querendo comprazer aos judeus, respondendo a Paulo, disse: Queres tu subir a Jerusalém e ser lá perante mim julgado acerca destas coisas?

10 And Paul said, I am before the seat of Caesar’s authority where it is right for me to be judged: I have done no wrong to the Jews, as you are well able to see.
10 Mas Paulo disse: Estou perante o tribunal de César, onde convém que seja julgado; não fiz agravo algum aos judeus, como tu muito bem sabes.

11 If, then, I am a wrongdoer and there is a cause of death in me, I am ready for death: if it is not as they say against me, no man may give me up to them. Let my cause come before Caesar.
11 Se fiz algum agravo ou cometi alguma coisa digna de morte, não recuso morrer; mas, se nada há das coisas de que estes me acusam, ninguém me pode entregar a eles. Apelo para César.

12 Then Festus, having had a discussion with the Jews, made answer, You have said, Let my cause come before Caesar; to Caesar you will go.
12 Então, Festo, tendo falado com o conselho, respondeu: Apelaste para César? Para César irás.

13 Now when some days had gone by, King Agrippa and Bernice came to Caesarea and went to see Festus.
13 Passados alguns dias, o rei Agripa e Berenice vieram a Cesaréia, a saudar Festo.

14 And as they were there for some days, Festus gave them Paul’s story, saying, There is a certain man here who was put in prison by Felix:
14 E, como ali ficassem muitos dias, Festo contou ao rei os negócios de Paulo, dizendo: Um certo varão foi deixado por Félix aqui preso,

15 Against whom the chief priests and the rulers of the Jews made a statement when I was at Jerusalem, requesting me to give a decision against him.
15 a respeito de quem os principais dos sacerdotes e os anciãos dos judeus, estando eu em Jerusalém, compareceram perante mim, pedindo sentença contra ele.

16 To whom I gave answer that it is not the Roman way to give a man up, till he has been face to face with those who are attacking him, and has had a chance to give an answer to the statements made against him.
16 A eles respondi que não é costume dos romanos entregar algum homem à morte, sem que o acusado tenha presentes os seus acusadores e possa defender-se da acusação.

17 So, when they had come together here, straight away, on the day after, I took my place on the judge’s seat and sent for the man.
17 De sorte que, chegando eles aqui juntos, no dia seguinte, sem fazer dilação alguma, assentado no tribunal, mandei que trouxessem o homem.

18 But when they got up they said nothing about such crimes as I had in mind:
18 Acerca dele, estando presentes os acusadores, nenhuma coisa apontaram daquelas que eu suspeitava.

19 But had certain questions against him in connection with their religion, and about one Jesus, now dead, who, Paul said, was living.
19 Tinham, porém, contra ele algumas questões acerca de sua superstição e de um tal Jesus, defunto, que Paulo afirmava viver.

20 And as I had not enough knowledge for the discussion of these things, I made the suggestion to him to go to Jerusalem and be judged there.
20 E, estando eu perplexo acerca da inquirição desta causa, perguntei se queria ir a Jerusalém e lá ser julgado acerca destas coisas.

21 But when Paul made a request that he might be judged by Caesar, I gave orders for him to be kept till I might send him to Caesar.
21 Mas, apelando Paulo para que fosse reservado ao conhecimento de Augusto, mandei que o guardassem até que o envie a César.

22 And Agrippa said to Festus, I have a desire to give the man a hearing myself. Tomorrow, he said, you may give him a hearing.
22 Então, Agripa disse a Festo: Bem quisera eu ouvir também esse homem. E ele disse: Amanhã o ouvirás.

23 So on the day after, when Agrippa and Bernice in great glory had come into the public place of hearing, with the chief of the army and the chief men of the town, at the order of Festus, Paul was sent for.
23 No dia seguinte, vindo Agripa e Berenice, com muito aparato, entraram no auditório com os tribunos e varões principais da cidade, sendo trazido Paulo por mandado de Festo.

24 And Festus said, King Agrippa, and all those who are present here with us, you see this man, about whom all the Jews have made protests to me, at Jerusalem and in this place, saying that it is not right for him to be living any longer.
24 E Festo disse: Rei Agripa e todos os varões que estais presentes conosco, aqui vedes um homem de quem toda a multidão dos judeus me tem falado, tanto em Jerusalém como aqui, clamando que não convém que viva mais.

25 But, in my opinion, there is no cause of death in him, and as he himself has made a request to be judged by Caesar, I have said that I would send him.
25 Mas, achando eu que nenhuma coisa digna de morte fizera, e apelando ele mesmo também para Augusto, tenho determinado enviar-lho.

26 But I have no certain account of him to send to Caesar. So I have sent for him to come before you, and specially before you, King Agrippa, so that after the business has been gone into, I may have something to put in writing.
26 Dele, porém, não tenho coisa alguma certa que escreva ao meu senhor e, por isso, perante vós o trouxe, principalmente perante ti, ó rei Agripa, para que, depois de interrogado, tenha alguma coisa que escrever.

27 For it seems to me against reason to send a prisoner without making clear what there is against him.
27 Porque me parece contra a razão enviar um preso e não notificar contra ele as acusações.

Acts 26

1 And Agrippa said to Paul, You may put your cause before us. Then Paul, stretching out his hand, made his answer, saying:
1 Depois, Agripa disse a Paulo: Permite-se-te que te defendas. Então, Paulo, estendendo a mão em sua defesa, respondeu:

2 In my opinion I am happy, King Agrippa, to be able to give my answer before you today to all these things which the Jews say against me:
2 Tenho-me por venturoso, ó rei Agripa, de que perante ti me haja, hoje, de defender de todas as coisas de que sou acusado pelos judeus,

3 The more so, because you are expert in all questions to do with the Jews and their ways: so I make my request to you to give me a hearing to the end.
3 mormente sabendo eu que tens conhecimento de todos os costumes e questões que há entre os judeus; pelo que te rogo que me ouças com paciência.

4 All the Jews have knowledge of my way of life from my early years, as it was from the start among my nation, and at Jerusalem;
4 A minha vida, pois, desde a mocidade, qual haja sido, desde o princípio, em Jerusalém, entre os da minha nação, todos os judeus a sabem.

5 And they are able to say, if they would give witness, that I was living as a Pharisee, in that division of our religion which is most regular in the keeping of the law.
5 Sabendo de mim, desde o princípio (se o quiserem testificar), que, conforme a mais severa seita da nossa religião, vivi fariseu.

6 And now I am here to be judged because of the hope given by God’s word to our fathers;
6 E, agora, pela esperança da promessa que por Deus foi feita a nossos pais, estou aqui e sou julgado,

7 For the effecting of which our twelve tribes have been working and waiting night and day with all their hearts. And in connection with this hope I am attacked by the Jews, O king!
7 à qual as nossas doze tribos esperam chegar, servindo a Deus continuamente, noite e dia. Por esta esperança, ó rei Agripa, eu sou acusado pelos judeus.

8 Why, in your opinion, is it outside belief for God to make the dead come to life again?
8 Pois quê? Julga-se coisa incrível entre vós que Deus ressuscite os mortos?

9 For I, truly, was of the opinion that it was right for me to do a number of things against the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
9 Bem tinha eu imaginado que contra o nome de Jesus, o Nazareno, devia eu praticar muitos atos,

10 And this I did in Jerusalem: and numbers of the saints I put in prison, having had authority given to me from the chief priests, and when they were put to death, I gave my decision against them.
10 o que também fiz em Jerusalém. E, havendo recebido poder dos principais dos sacerdotes, encerrei muitos dos santos nas prisões; e, quando os matavam, eu dava o meu voto contra eles.

11 And I gave them punishment frequently, in all the Synagogues, forcing them to say things against God; and burning with passion against them, I went after them even into far-away towns.
11 E, castigando-os muitas vezes por todas as sinagogas, os obriguei a blasfemar. E, enfurecido demasiadamente contra eles, até nas cidades estranhas os persegui.

12 Then, when I was journeying to Damascus with the authority and orders of the chief priests,
12 Sobre o que, indo, então, a Damasco, com poder e comissão dos principais dos sacerdotes,

13 In the middle of the day, on the road I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining round me and those who were journeying with me.
13 ao meio-dia, ó rei, vi no caminho uma luz do céu, que excedia o esplendor do sol, cuja claridade me envolveu a mim e aos que iam comigo.

14 And when we had all gone down on the earth, a voice came to me, saying in the Hebrew language, Saul, Saul, why are you attacking me so cruelly? It is hard for you to go against the impulse which is driving you.
14 E, caindo nós todos por terra, ouvi uma voz que me falava e, em língua hebraica, dizia: Saulo, Saulo, por que me persegues? Dura coisa te é recalcitrar contra os aguilhões.

15 And I said, Who are you, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus, whom you are attacking.
15 E disse eu: Quem és, Senhor? E ele respondeu: Eu sou Jesus, a quem tu persegues.

16 But get up on your feet: for I have come to you for this purpose, to make you a servant and a witness of the things in which you have seen me, and of those in which you will see me;
16 Mas levanta-te e põe-te sobre teus pés, porque te apareci por isto, para te pôr por ministro e testemunha tanto das coisas que tens visto como daquelas pelas quais te aparecerei ainda,

17 And I will keep you safe from the people, and from the Gentiles, to whom I send you,
17 livrando-te deste povo e dos gentios, a quem agora te envio,

18 To make their eyes open, turning them from the dark to the light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may have forgiveness of sins and a heritage among those who are made holy by faith in me.
18 para lhes abrires os olhos e das trevas os converteres à luz e do poder de Satanás a Deus, a fim de que recebam a remissão dos pecados e sorte entre os santificados pela fé em mim.

19 So, then, King Agrippa, I did not go against the vision from heaven;
19 Pelo que, ó rei Agripa, não fui desobediente à visão celestial.

20 But I went about, first to those in Damascus and Jerusalem, and through all the country of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, preaching a change of heart, so that they, being turned to God, might give, in their works, the fruits of a changed heart.
20 Antes, anunciei primeiramente aos que estão em Damasco e em Jerusalém, e por toda a terra da Judéia, e aos gentios, que se emendassem e se convertessem a Deus, fazendo obras dignas de arrependimento.

21 For this reason, the Jews took me in the Temple, and made an attempt to put me to death.
21 Por causa disto, os judeus lançaram mão de mim no templo e procuraram matar-me.

22 And so, by God’s help, I am here today, witnessing to small and great, saying nothing but what the prophets and Moses said would come about;
22 Mas, alcançando socorro de Deus, ainda até ao dia de hoje permaneço, dando testemunho, tanto a pequenos como a grandes, não dizendo nada mais do que o que os profetas e Moisés disseram que devia acontecer,

23 That the Christ would go through pain, and being the first to come back from the dead, would give light to the people and to the Gentiles.
23 isto é, que o Cristo devia padecer e, sendo o primeiro da ressurreição dos mortos, devia anunciar a luz a este povo e aos gentios.

24 And when he made his answer in these words, Festus said in a loud voice, Paul, you are off your head; your great learning has made you unbalanced.
24 E, dizendo ele isto em sua defesa, disse Festo em alta voz: Estás louco, Paulo! As muitas letras te fazem delirar!

25 Then Paul said, I am not off my head, most noble Festus, but my words are true and wise.
25 Mas ele disse: Não deliro, ó potentíssimo Festo! Antes, digo palavras de verdade e de um são juízo.

26 For the king has knowledge of these things, to whom I am talking freely; being certain that all this is common knowledge to him; for it has not been done in secret.
26 Porque o rei, diante de quem falo com ousadia, sabe estas coisas, pois não creio que nada disto lhe é oculto; porque isto não se fez em qualquer canto.

27 King Agrippa, have you faith in the prophets? I am certain that you have.
27 Crês tu nos profetas, ó rei Agripa? Bem sei que crês.

28 And Agrippa said to Paul, A little more and you will be making me a Christian.
28 E disse Agripa a Paulo: Por pouco me queres persuadir a que me faça cristão!

29 And Paul said, It is my prayer to God that, in little or great measure, not only you, but all those hearing me today might be even as I am, but for these chains.
29 E disse Paulo: Prouvera a Deus que, ou por pouco ou por muito, não somente tu, mas também todos quantos hoje me estão ouvindo se tornassem tais qual eu sou, exceto estas cadeias.

30 And the king and the ruler and Bernice and those who were seated with them got up;
30 Dizendo ele isto, se levantou o rei, e o governador, e Berenice, e os que com eles estavam assentados.

31 And when they had gone away they said to one another, This man has done nothing which might give cause for death or prison.
31 E, apartando-se dali, falavam uns com os outros, dizendo: Este homem nada fez digno de morte ou de prisões.

32 And Agrippa said to Festus, This man might have been made free, if he had not put his cause before Caesar.
32 E Agripa disse a Festo: Bem podia soltar-se este homem, se não houvera apelado para César.

Acts 27

1 And when the decision had been made that we were to go by sea to Italy, they gave Paul and certain other prisoners into the care of a captain named Julius, of the Augustan band.
1 Como se determinou que havíamos de navegar para a Itália, entregaram Paulo e alguns outros presos a um centurião por nome Júlio, da Coorte Augusta.

2 And we went to sea in a ship of Adramyttium which was sailing to the sea towns of Asia, Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, being with us.
2 E, embarcando nós em um navio adramitino, partimos navegando pelos lugares da costa da Ásia, estando conosco Aristarco, macedônio de Tessalônica.

3 And on the day after, we came to Sidon; and Julius was kind to Paul, and let him go to see his friends and take a rest.
3 E chegamos no dia seguinte a Sidom, e Júlio, tratando Paulo humanamente, lhe permitiu ir ver os amigos, para que cuidassem dele.

4 And sailing again from there, we went on under cover of Cyprus, because the wind was against us.
4 E, partindo dali, fomos navegando abaixo de Chipre, porque os ventos eram contrários.

5 And having gone across the sea off Cilicia and Pamphylia we came to Myra, in Lycia.
5 E, tendo atravessado o mar ao longo da Cilícia e Panfília, chegamos a Mirra, na Lícia.

6 And there the captain came across a ship of Alexandria, sailing for Italy, and put us in it.
6 Achando ali o centurião um navio de Alexandria, que navegava para a Itália, nos fez embarcar nele.

7 And when we had gone on slowly for a long time, and had had hard work getting across to Cnidus, for the wind was against us, we went under cover of Crete, in the direction of Salmone;
7 E, como por muitos dias navegássemos vagarosamente, havendo chegado apenas defronte de Cnido, não nos permitindo o vento ir mais adiante, navegamos abaixo de Creta, junto de Salmona.

8 And sailing down the side of it, as well as we were able, we came to a certain place named Fair Havens, near which was the town of Lasea.
8 E, costeando-a dificilmente, chegamos a um lugar chamado Bons Portos, perto do qual estava a cidade de Laséia.

9 And as a long time had gone by, and the journey was now full of danger, because it was late in the year, Paul put the position before them,
9 Passado muito tempo, e sendo já perigosa a navegação, pois também o jejum já tinha passado, Paulo os admoestava,

10 Saying, Friends, I see that this journey will be one of great damage and loss, not only to the goods and the ship, but to ourselves.
10 dizendo-lhes: Varões, vejo que a navegação há de ser incômoda e com muito dano, não só para o navio e a carga, mas também para a nossa vida.

11 But the captain gave more attention to the master and the owner of the ship than to what Paul said.
11 Mas o centurião cria mais no piloto e no mestre do que no que dizia Paulo.

12 And as the harbour was not a good one in which to be for the winter, the greater number of them were for going out to sea, in order, if possible, to put in for the winter at Phoenix, a harbour of Crete, looking to the north-east and south-east.
12 E, como aquele porto não era cômodo para invernar, os mais deles foram de parecer que se partisse dali para ver se podiam chegar a Fenice, que é um porto de Creta que olha para a banda do vento da África e do Coro, e invernar ali.

13 And when the south wind came softly, being of the opinion that their purpose might be effected, they let the ship go and went sailing down the side of Crete, very near to the land.
13 E, soprando o vento sul brandamente, lhes pareceu terem já o que desejavam, e, fazendo-se de vela, foram de muito perto costeando Creta.

14 But after a little time, a very violent wind, named Euraquilo, came down from it with great force.
14 Mas, não muito depois, deu nela um pé de vento, chamado Euroaquilão.

15 And when the ship got into the grip of it, and was not able to make headway into the wind, we gave way, and went before it.
15 E, sendo o navio arrebatado e não podendo navegar contra o vento, dando de mão a tudo, nos deixamos ir à toa.

16 And, sailing near the side of a small island named Cauda, we were able, though it was hard work, to make the ship’s boat safe:
16 E, correndo abaixo de uma pequena ilha chamada Cauda, apenas pudemos ganhar o batel.

17 And having got it up, they put cords under and round the ship; but fearing that they might be pushed on to the Syrtis, they let down the sails and so went running before the wind.
17 E, levado este para cima, usaram de todos os meios, cingindo o navio; e, temendo darem à costa na Sirte, amainadas as velas, assim foram à toa.

18 And, still fighting the storm with all our strength, the day after they made a start at getting the goods out of the ship;
18 Andando nós agitados por uma veemente tempestade, no dia seguinte, aliviaram o navio.

19 And on the third day, they let all the sailing apparatus go over the side.
19 E, ao terceiro dia, nós mesmos, com as próprias mãos, lançamos ao mar a armação do navio.

20 And as we had not seen the sun or stars for a long time, and a great storm was on us, all hope of salvation was gone.
20 E, não aparecendo, havia já muitos dias, nem sol nem estrelas, e caindo sobre nós uma não pequena tempestade, fugiu-nos toda a esperança de nos salvarmos.

21 And when they had been without food for a long time, Paul got up among them and said, Friends, it would have been better if you had given attention to me and not gone sailing out from Crete, to undergo this damage and loss.
21 Havendo já muito que se não comia, então, Paulo, pondo-se em pé no meio deles, disse: Fora, na verdade, razoável, ó varões, ter-me ouvido a mim e não partir de Creta, e assim evitariam este incômodo e esta perdição.

22 But now, I say to you, be of good heart, for there will be no loss of life, but only of the ship.
22 Mas, agora, vos admoesto a que tenhais bom ânimo, porque não se perderá a vida de nenhum de vós, mas somente o navio.

23 For this night there came to my side an angel of the God who is my Master and whose servant I am,
23 Porque, esta mesma noite, o anjo de Deus, de quem eu sou e a quem sirvo, esteve comigo,

24 Saying, Have no fear, Paul, for you will come before Caesar, and God has given to you all those who are sailing with you.
24 dizendo: Paulo, não temas! Importa que sejas apresentado a César, e eis que Deus te deu todos quantos navegam contigo.

25 And so, O men, be of good heart, for I have faith in God that it will be as he said to me.
25 Portanto, ó varões, tende bom ânimo! Porque creio em Deus que há de acontecer assim como a mim me foi dito.

26 But we will be sent on to a certain island.
26 É, contudo, necessário irmos dar numa ilha.

27 But when the fourteenth day came, while we were going here and there in the Adriatic sea, about the middle of the night the sailors had an idea that they were getting near land;
27 Quando chegou a décima quarta noite, sendo impelidos de uma e outra banda no mar Adriático, lá pela meia-noite, suspeitaram os marinheiros que estavam próximos de alguma terra.

28 And they let down the lead, and saw that the sea was a hundred and twenty feet deep; and after a little time they did it again and it was ninety feet.
28 E, lançando o prumo, acharam vinte braças; passando um pouco mais adiante, tornando a lançar o prumo, acharam quinze braças.

29 Then, fearing that by chance we might come on to the rocks, they let down four hooks from the back of the ship, and made prayers for the coming of day.
29 E, temendo ir dar em alguns rochedos, lançaram da popa quatro âncoras, desejando que viesse o dia.

30 Then the sailors made attempts secretly to get away from the ship, letting down a boat as if they were about to put down hooks from the front of the ship;
30 Procurando, porém, os marinheiros fugir do navio e tendo já deitado o batel ao mar, como que querendo lançar as âncoras pela proa,

31 But Paul said to the captain and his men, If you do not keep these men in the ship, you will not be safe.
31 disse Paulo ao centurião e aos soldados: Se estes não ficarem no navio, não podereis salvar-vos.

32 Then the armed men, cutting the cords of the boat, let her go.
32 Então, os soldados cortaram os cabos do batel e o deixaram cair.

33 And when dawn was near, Paul gave them all orders to take food, saying, This is the fourteenth day you have been waiting and taking no food.
33 E, enquanto o dia vinha, Paulo exortava a todos a que comessem alguma coisa, dizendo: É já hoje o décimo quarto dia que esperais e permaneceis sem comer, não havendo provado nada.

34 So I make request to you to take food; for this is for your salvation: not a hair from the head of any of you will come to destruction.
34 Portanto, exorto-vos a que comais alguma coisa, pois é para a vossa saúde; porque nem um cabelo cairá da cabeça de qualquer de vós.

35 And when he had said this and had taken bread, he gave praise to God before them all, and took a meal of the broken bread.
35 E, havendo dito isto, tomando o pão, deu graças a Deus na presença de todos e, partindo-o, começou a comer.

36 Then they all took heart and did the same.
36 E, tendo já todos bom ânimo, puseram-se também a comer.

37 And we were, in the ship, two hundred and seventy-six persons.
37 E éramos ao todo no navio duzentas e setenta e seis almas.

38 And when they had had enough food, they made the weight of the ship less, turning the grain out into the sea.
38 Refeitos com a comida, aliviaram o navio, lançando o trigo ao mar.

39 And when it was day, they had no knowledge of the land, but they saw an inlet of the sea with a floor of sand, and they had the idea of driving the ship up on to it if possible.
39 E, sendo já dia, não reconheceram a terra; enxergaram, porém, uma enseada que tinha praia e consultaram-se sobre se deveriam encalhar nela o navio.

40 So cutting away the hooks, and letting them go into the sea, and freeing the cords of the guiding-blades, and lifting up the sail to the wind, they went in the direction of the inlet.
40 Levantando as âncoras, deixaram-no ir ao mar, largando também as amarras do leme; e, alçando a vela maior ao vento, dirigiram-se para a praia.

41 And coming to a point between two seas, they got the ship to land; and the front part was fixed in the sand and not able to be moved, but the back part was broken by the force of the waves.
41 Dando, porém, num lugar de dois mares, encalharam ali o navio; e, fixa a proa, ficou imóvel, mas a popa abria-se com a força das ondas.

42 Then the armed men were for putting the prisoners to death, so that no one would get away by swimming.
42 Então, a idéia dos soldados foi que matassem os presos para que nenhum fugisse, escapando a nado.

43 But the captain, desiring to keep Paul safe, kept them from their purpose, and gave orders that those who had knowledge of swimming were to go off the ship and get first to land:
43 Mas o centurião, querendo salvar a Paulo, lhes estorvou este intento; e mandou que os que pudessem nadar se lançassem primeiro ao mar e se salvassem em terra;

44 And the rest, some on boards and some on things from the ship. And so it came about that they all got safe to land.
44 e os demais, uns em tábuas e outros em coisas do navio. E assim aconteceu que todos chegaram à terra, a salvo.

Acts 28

1 And when we were safe, we made the discovery that the island was named Melita.
1 Havendo escapado, então, souberam que a ilha se chamava Malta.

2 And the simple people living there were uncommonly kind to us, for they made a fire for us, and took us in, because it was raining and cold.
2 E os bárbaros usaram conosco de não pouca humanidade; porque, acendendo uma grande fogueira, nos recolheram a todos por causa da chuva que caía e por causa do frio.

3 But when Paul had got some sticks together and put them on the fire, a snake came out, because of the heat, and gave him a bite on the hand.
3 E, havendo Paulo ajuntado uma quantidade de vides e pondo-as no fogo, uma víbora, fugindo do calor, lhe acometeu a mão.

4 And when the people saw it hanging on his hand, they said to one another, Without doubt this man has put someone to death, and though he has got safely away from the sea, God will not let him go on living.
4 E os bárbaros, vendo-lhe a víbora pendurada na mão, diziam uns aos outros: Certamente este homem é homicida, visto como, escapando do mar, a Justiça não o deixa viver.

5 But shaking off the beast into the fire, he got no damage.
5 Mas, sacudindo ele a víbora no fogo, não padeceu nenhum mal.

6 But they had the idea that they would see him becoming ill, or suddenly falling down dead; but after waiting a long time, and seeing that no damage came to him, changing their opinion, they said he was a god.
6 E eles esperavam que viesse a inchar ou a cair morto de repente; mas tendo esperado já muito e vendo que nenhum incômodo lhe sobrevinha, mudando de parecer, diziam que era um deus.

7 Now near that place there was some land, the property of the chief man of the island, who was named Publius; who very kindly took us into his house as his guests for three days.
7 E ali, próximo daquele mesmo lugar, havia umas herdades que pertenciam ao principal da ilha, por nome Públio, o qual nos recebeu e hospedou benignamente por três dias.

8 And the father of Publius was ill, with a disease of the stomach; to whom Paul went, and put his hands on him, with prayer, and made him well.
8 Aconteceu estar de cama enfermo de febres e disenteria o pai de Públio, que Paulo foi ver, e, havendo orado, pôs as mãos sobre ele e o curou.

9 And when this took place, all the others in the island who had diseases came and were made well.
9 Feito, pois, isto, vieram também ter com ele os demais que na ilha tinham enfermidades e sararam,

10 Then they gave us great honour, and, when we went away, they put into the ship whatever things we were in need of.
10 os quais nos distinguiram também com muitas honras; e, havendo de navegar, nos proveram das coisas necessárias.

11 And after three months we went to sea in a ship of Alexandria sailing under the sign of the Dioscuri, which had been at the island for the winter.
11 Três meses depois, partimos num navio de Alexandria, que invernara na ilha, o qual tinha por insígnia Castor e Pólux.

12 And going into the harbour at Syracuse, we were waiting there for three days.
12 E, chegando a Siracusa, ficamos ali três dias,

13 And from there, going about in a curve, we came to Rhegium: and after one day a south wind came up and on the day after we came to Puteoli:
13 donde, indo costeando, viemos a Régio; e, soprando, um dia depois, um vento do sul, chegamos no segundo dia a Putéoli,

14 Where we came across some of the brothers, who kept us with them for seven days; and so we came to Rome.
14 onde, achando alguns irmãos, nos rogaram que por sete dias ficássemos com eles; e depois nos dirigimos a Roma.

15 And the brothers, when they had news of us, came out from town as far as Appii Forum and the Three Taverns to have a meeting with us: and Paul, seeing them, gave praise to God and took heart.
15 E de lá, ouvindo os irmãos novas de nós, nos saíram ao encontro à Praça de Ápio e às Três Vendas, e Paulo, vendo-os, deu graças a Deus e tomou ânimo.

16 And when we came into Rome, they let Paul have a house for himself and the armed man who kept watch over him.
16 E, logo que chegamos a Roma, o centurião entregou os presos ao general dos exércitos; mas a Paulo se lhe permitiu morar por sua conta, com o soldado que o guardava.

17 Then after three days he sent for the chief men of the Jews: and when they had come together, he said to them, My brothers, though I had done nothing against the people or the ways of our fathers, I was given, a prisoner from Jerusalem, into the hands of the Romans.
17 E aconteceu que, três dias depois, Paulo convocou os principais dos judeus e, juntos eles, lhes disse: Varões irmãos, não havendo eu feito nada contra o povo ou contra os ritos paternos, vim, contudo, preso desde Jerusalém, entregue nas mãos dos romanos,

18 Who, when they had put questions to me, were ready to let me go free, because there was no cause of death in me.
18 os quais, havendo-me examinado, queriam soltar-me, por não haver em mim crime algum de morte.

19 But when the Jews made protest against it, I had to put my cause into Caesar’s hands; not because I have anything to say against my nation.
19 Mas, opondo-se os judeus, foi-me forçoso apelar para César, não tendo, contudo, de que acusar a minha nação.

20 But for this reason I sent for you, to see and have talk with you: for because of the hope of Israel I am in these chains.
20 Por esta causa vos chamei, para vos ver e falar; porque pela esperança de Israel estou com esta cadeia.

21 And they said to him, We have not had letters from Judaea about you, and no one of the brothers has come to us here to give an account or say any evil about you.
21 Então, eles lhe disseram: Nós não recebemos acerca de ti cartas algumas da Judéia, nem veio aqui algum dos irmãos que nos anunciasse ou dissesse de ti mal algum.

22 But we have a desire to give hearing to your opinion: for as to this form of religion, we have knowledge that in all places it is attacked.
22 No entanto, bem quiséramos ouvir de ti o que sentes; porque, quanto a esta seita, notório nos é que em toda parte se fala contra ela.

23 And when a day had been fixed, they came to his house in great numbers; and he gave them teaching, giving witness to the kingdom of God, and having discussions with them about Jesus, from the law of Moses and from the prophets, from morning till evening.
23 E, havendo-lhe eles assinalado um dia, muitos foram ter com ele à pousada, aos quais declarava com bom testemunho o Reino de Deus e procurava persuadi-los à fé de Jesus, tanto pela lei de Moisés como pelos profetas, desde pela manhã até à tarde.

24 And some were in agreement with what he said, but some had doubts.
24 E alguns criam no que se dizia, mas outros não criam.

25 And they went away, for there was a division among them after Paul had said this one thing: Well did the Holy Spirit say by the prophet Isaiah to your fathers,
25 E, como ficaram entre si discordes, se despediram, dizendo Paulo esta palavra: Bem falou o Espírito Santo a nossos pais pelo profeta Isaías,

26 Go to this people and say, Though you give ear, you will not get knowledge; and seeing, you will see, but the sense will not be clear to you:
26 dizendo: Vai a este povo e dize: De ouvido, ouvireis e de maneira nenhuma entendereis; e, vendo, vereis e de maneira nenhuma percebereis.

27 For the heart of this people has become fat and their ears are slow in hearing and their eyes are shut; for fear that they might see with their eyes and give hearing with their ears and become wise in their hearts and be turned again to me, so that I might make them well.
27 Porquanto o coração deste povo está endurecido, e com os ouvidos ouviram pesadamente e fecharam os olhos, para que nunca com os olhos vejam, nem com os ouvidos ouçam, nem do coração entendam, e se convertam, e eu os cure.

28 Be certain, then, that the salvation of God is sent to the Gentiles, and they will give hearing.
28 Seja-vos, pois, notório que esta salvação de Deus é enviada aos gentios, e eles a ouvirão.

29
29 E, havendo ele dito isto, partiram os judeus, tendo entre si grande contenda.

30 And for the space of two years, Paul was living in the house of which he had the use, and had talk with all those who went in to see him,
30 E Paulo ficou dois anos inteiros na sua própria habitação que alugara e recebia todos quantos vinham vê-lo,

31 Preaching the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ without fear, and no orders were given that he was not to do so.
31 pregando o Reino de Deus e ensinando com toda a liberdade as coisas pertencentes ao Senhor Jesus Cristo, sem impedimento algum.
