Acts 18:1-11

1 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth.  2 He found a certain Jew named Aquila, a man of Pontus by race, who had recently come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to depart from Rome. He came to them,  3 and because he practiced the same trade, he lived with them and worked, for by trade they were tent makers.  4 He reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and persuaded Jews and Greeks.  5 But when Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul was compelled by the Spirit, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Christ.  6 When they opposed him and blasphemed, he shook out his clothing and said to them, "Your blood be on your own heads! I am clean. From now on, I will go to the Gentiles!"

7 He departed there, and went into the house of a certain man named Justus, one who worshiped God, whose house was next door to the synagogue.  8 Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed in the Lord with all his house. Many of the Corinthians, when they heard, believed and were baptized.  9 The Lord said to Paul in the night by a vision, “Don't be afraid, but speak and don't be silent;  10 for I am with you, and no one will attack you to harm you, for I have many people in this city.”

11 He lived there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
