Acts 16:11-17

The Conversion of Lydia

11So, setting sail from Troas, we amade a direct voyage to Samothrace, and the following day to Neapolis, 12and from there to bPhilippi, which is a leading city of the
Or that
district of Macedonia and da Roman colony. We remained in this city some days.
13And eon the Sabbath day we went outside the gate fto the riverside, where we supposed there was a place of prayer, and we gsat down and spoke to the women who had come together. 14One who heard us was a woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple goods hwho was a worshiper of God. The Lord iopened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul. 15And after she was baptized jand her household as well, she urged us, saying, “If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay.” And she kprevailed upon us.

16As we were going to lthe place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had ma spirit of ndivination and obrought her owners much gain by fortune-telling. 17She followed Paul and us pcrying out, “These men are qservants
Greek bondservants
of sthe Most High God, who proclaim to you tthe way of salvation.”
