At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem; and athey were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. 2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and bmade great lamentation over him.
3 As for Saul, che made havoc of the church, entering every house, and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison.
4 Therefore dthose who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word.
