And her majesty should be destroyed, which all Asia, and the world worshippeth.

19:34 And as they knew that he was a Jew, one voice of all men was made, crying as by two hours, Great is Diana of Ephesians. When they knew that he was a jew, there arose a shout almost for the space of two hours of all men crying, great is Diana of the Ephesians. But when they knew that he was a Jew, there arose a shout almost for the space of two hours, of all men crying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians.

19:35 And when the scribe had ceased the people, he said, Men of Ephesus, what man is he, that knoweth not, that the city of Ephesians is the worshipper of the great Diana, and of the child of Jupiter? When the town clerk had ceased the people he said: ye men of Ephesus: what man is it that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which came from heaven. Then the town clerk when he had stayed the people, said, Ye men of Ephesus, what man is it that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image, which came down from Jupiter? And when the town clerk had appeased the people, he said, Ye men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Jupiter?
19:36 Therefore when it may not be against-said to these things, it behooveth you to be ceased, and to do nothing follily; Seeing then that no man saith here against, ye ought to be content, and to do nothing rashly, Seeing then that no man can speak against these things, ye ought to be appeased, and to do nothing rashly. Seeing then that these things cannot be spoken against, ye ought to be quiet, and to do nothing rashly.
19:37 for ye have brought these men, neither sacrilegers, neither blaspheming your goddess. For ye have brought hither these men, which are neither robbers of churches, nor yet despisers of your goddess. For ye have brought hither these men, which have neither commit sacrilege, neither do blaspheme your goddess. For ye have brought hither these men, which are neither robbers of Churches, nor yet blasphemers of your goddess:
19:38 That if Demetrius, and the workmen that be with him, have cause against any man, coming together of dooms be done, and proconsuls be; accuse they them together. Wherefore if Demetrius and the craftsmen which are with him, have any saying to any man, the law is open, and there are rulers, let them accuse one another. Wherefore, if Demetrius and the craftsmen which are with him, have a matter against any man, the law is open, & there are Deputies: let them accuse one another. Wherefore if Demetrius, and the craftsmen which are with him, have a matter against any man, the law is open, and there are deputies, let them implead one another.
19:39 If ye seek aught of any other thing, it may be assoiled in the lawful church. If ye go about any other thing, it may be determined in a lawful congregation. But if ye inquire any thing concerning other matters it may be determined in a lawful assembly. But if ye enquire any thing concerning other matters, it shall be determined in a lawful assembly.
19:40 For why and we be in peril to be reproved of this day’s sedition, since no man is guilty, of whom we may yield reason of this running together. For we are in jeopardy to be accused of this day’s business. Forasmuch as there is no cause whereby we may give a reckoning of this concourse of people. For we are even in jeopardy to be accused of this day’s sedition, forasmuch as there is no cause, whereby we may give a reason of this concourse of people. For we are in danger to be called in question for this day’s uproar, there being no cause whereby we may give an accompt of this concourse.
19:41 And when he had said this thing, he left the church. And when he had thus spoken, he let the congregation depart. And when he had thus spoken, he let the assembly depart. And when he had thus spoken, he dismissed the assembly.
