May you see and hear this, not just in the Ephesus, but also in the whole of Asia, this man Paul is making people turn away. He says that what is made by hand cannot be God’s This is a threat to our trade, to the temple of the goddess Diana and even her divine majesty will be defeated. Then they were very angry and shouted and the whole town was in uproar. They rushed to the theater and they seized Gaius and Aristardus from Macedonia who were Paul's companions.
