Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, d“It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables. Therefore, brethren, eseek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this fbusiness; but we gwill give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”
