24 “The God who made the world and everything in itl is the Lord of heaven and earthm and does not live in temples built by human hands.n 25 And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else.o 26 From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.p 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.q 28 ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’b r As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’c
