And in those days, awhen the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the bGrecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected cin the daily ministration. 2 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. 3 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. 4 But we will hgive ourselves continually to prayer, and to ithe ministry of the word. 5 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: 6 Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had pprayed, they qlaid their hands on them. 7 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.
