22 Then Paul stood in the midst of ||Mars’ hill, and said,

Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too rsuperstitious. 23 For as I passed by, and beheld your ||devotions, I found an altar with this sinscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, thim declare I unto you. 24 uGod that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is xLord of heaven and earth, ydwelleth not in temples zmade with hands; 25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, aas though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all blife, and breath, and all things; 26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath cdetermined the times before appointed, and dthe bounds of their habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, ethough he be not far from every one of us: 28 For fin him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of gyour own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. 29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, hwe ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. 30 And the times of this ignorance God iwinked at; but know commandeth all men every where to repent: 31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which lhe will judge mthe world in righteousness by that man whom he hath cordained; whereof he ||hath given assurance unto all men, in that nhe hath raised him from the dead.
