18:1 After these things Paulos departed from Athenai, and came to Korinthos;

18:2 And found a certain Yehudi named Akúlas, born in Pontikos, lately come from Italy, with his wife Príska; (because that Klaudios had commanded all Yehudim to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.

18:3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.

18:4 And he reasoned in the Shul every shabbat, and persuaded the Yehudim and the Yevanis.

18:5 And when Silas and Timotheos were come from Makedon, Paulos was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Yehudim [that] Yeshua (ישוע) [was] Moshiach.

18:6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook [his] raiment, and said unto them, Your blood [be] upon your own heads; I [am] clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Goyim.

18:7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain [man's] house, named Titios Ioústos, [one] that worshipped Elohim (אלהים), whose house joined hard to the Shul.

18:8 And Krispos, the chief ruler of the knesset, believed on Adonay with all his house; and many of the Korinthios hearing believed, and were immersed.

18:9 Then spake Adonay to Paulos in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:

18:10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

18:11 And he continued [there] a year and six months, teaching the word of Elohim (אלהים) among them.

18:12 And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Yehudim made insurrection with one accord against Paulos, and brought him to the judgment seat,

18:13 Saying, This [fellow] persuadeth anashim to worship Elohim (אלהים) contrary to the law.

18:14 And when Paulos was now about to open [his] mouth, Gallio said unto the Yehudim, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O [ye] Yehudim, reason would that I should bear with you:

18:15 But if it be a question of words and names, and [of] your law, look ye [to it]; for I will be no judge of such [matters].

18:16 And he drave them from the judgment seat.

18:17 Then all the Yevanis took Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the Shul, and beat [him] before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things.

18:18 And Paulos [after this] tarried [there] yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Príska and Akúlas; having shorn [his] head in Kegchreai: for he had a vow.

18:19 And he came to Ephesos, and left them there: but he himself entered into the Shul, and reasoned with the Yehudim.

18:20 When they desired [him] to tarry longer time with them, he consented not;

18:21 But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Yerushalayim: but I will return again unto you, if Elohim (אלהים) will. And he sailed from Ephesos.

18:22 And when he had landed at Kaisareia, and gone up, and saluted the assembly, he went down to Antioch.

18:23 And after he had spent some time [there], he departed, and went over [all] the country of Galatikos and Phrugia in order, strengthening all the taught ones.

18:24 And a certain Yehudi named Apollos, born at Alexandreus, an eloquent man, [and] mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesos.

18:25 This man was instructed in the way of Adonay; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of Adonay, knowing only the immersion of Yochanan.

18:26 And he began to speak boldly in the Shul: whom when Akúlas and Príska had heard, they took him unto [them], and expounded unto him the way of Elohim (אלהים) more perfectly.

18:27 And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the taught ones to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:

18:28 For he mightily convinced the Yehudim, [and that] publickly, shewing by the scriptures that Yeshua (ישוע) was Moshiach.

Korinth = saratiated 酒足饭饱 also named for a legendary king (Greek: Κόρινθος, Kórinthos) was a city-state (polis) on the Isthmus of Korinth, the narrow stretch of land that joins the Peloponnesus to the mainland of Greece, about 40 miles (65 km) between west of Athens and Sparta. It was the capital of Achaia and a renowned and sinful city of Greece (Acts 18:1; Acts 19:1; 1st Korinthos 1:2; 2nd Korinthos 1:1, 2nd Korinthos 1:23; 2nd Timotheos 4:20).  "To live as at Corinth" was a proverb meaning profligate indulgence, and the name "Korinthian" applied to women who were infamous. The city is now desolate with just a little village near the ancient Korinth.
