Acts 6:1–7

Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, dIt is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve etables. Wherefore, brethren, flook ye out among you seven men gof honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. But we will hgive ourselves continually to prayer, and to ithe ministry of the word. And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, ka man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and lPhilip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and mNicolas a nproselyte of oAntioch: Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had pprayed, they qlaid their hands on them. And rthe word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and sa great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.
