Gen. 15. 13,


Stephen's apology.


Anno 6 And God spake on this wise, That DOMINI his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.


7 And the nation to whom they
be in bondage will I judge, said God:
and after that shall they come forth,
and serve me in this place.

8 And he gave him the covenant of
circumcision: and 80 Abraham begat
Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth
day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and 'Jacob
begat the twelve patriarchs.

9 And the patria chs, moved with
envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: "but God
was with him.

10 And delivered him out of all his
afflictions, and gave him favour and
wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of
Egypt; and he made him governor over
Egypt and all his house.
11 P Now there came a dearth over all
the land of Egypt and Chanaan, and
great affliction: and our fathers found
no sustenance.

12 But when Jacob heard ẞ that there
was corn in Egypt, he sent out ẞ our
fathers first.

13 And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh. 14 Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls.

f Luke 24. 19.

22 And Moses was 6 learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was f mighty in words and in deeds. 23 And when he was full forty years 7 Exod. 2. 11, old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel.



24 And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian: 25 For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand 7 would deliver them: but they understood not.

20 In which time Moses was born, and
d was exceeding fair, and nourished
up in his father's house three months:

21 And when he was cast out, Pha-wot not what is become of him.
raoh's daughter took him up, and nou-
rished him for her own son.

26 And the next day he shewed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one ß again, saying,

8 Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong
one to another?

27 But he that did his neighbour wrong
thrust him away, saying, Who made thee
a ruler and a judge over us?
289 Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest
the Egyptian yesterday?

A 15. 1,6

29 Then fled Moses at this saying, and
was a stranger in the land of Madian,
where he begat two sons.
30 And when forty years were expired, Ex. 9.2.
there appeared to him in the wilderness
of mount Sina an angel 8 of the Lord 8
in a flame of fire in a bush.

31 When Moses saw he wondered at the
sight: and as he drew near to behold it,
the voice of the Lord came ẞ unto him ẞ,
32 Saying, "I am the God of thy fa-
thers, the God of Abraham, and the God
of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then
Moses trembled, and durst not behold.
33 Then said the Lord to him, Put off Ex 3.1

where thou standest is holy ground.

Josh 5. 25.

34 I have seen, I have seen the afflic-
tion of my people which is in Egypt,
and I have heard their groaning, and
am come down to deliver them. And now
come, I will send 8 thee into Egypt.

ing, Who made thee a ruler and a judge
the same did God send to be a ruler and

which appeared to him in the bush.

36 He brought them out, after that he

22 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee. 23 Then called he them in, and lodged them. And on the morrow B Peter went ß away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him.

24 And the morrow after they entered into Cæsarea. And Cornelius 6 waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends.

25 B And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him.

26 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.

27 And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together.


28 And he said unto them, Ye know how 77that it is an unlawful thing 7 for a man that is a Jew to keep company, come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. 29 Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me?

13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

14 But Peter said, Not so. Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common Borß unclean.

15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

16 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.

17 Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean. behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon's house, and stood before the gate 5,

18 And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there.

19 While Peter thought on the vision, *the Spirit said unto him, Behold, B three 8 men seek thee. 20 Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.

21 Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek what is the cause wherefore ye are come ?
